2009 Best of Halo Awards: Accepting Nominations

Best of Halo AwardsThe biggest games of the year have already been released and now you’re looking forward to the titles making their debut in 2010. That downtime in between can only mean thing: It’s time for the 2009 Best of Halo Awards! Covering everything from the most entertaining video to the best resource website to everybody’s favorite multiplayer map, the Best of Halo Awards attempts to honor those items and individuals that have made a significant impact on the collective Halo community.

While I’m incredibly immersed in anything and everything Master Chief-related, some things do manage to escape my attention so that is where you come in. From now until December 23rd, I am officially accepting nominations for all ten categories involved in these awards. That gives you an entire week to ponder your preferred choices. When you make your nominations in the form of a comment, please remember this is for the year 2009 only meaning potential video nominations must have been made and released in 2009, all screenshot nominations must have been taken in 2009, and eligible news must have occurred in 2009. Please note that if somebody else has already mentioned the same thing you were going to point out, go ahead and call my attention to it again. The more referrals I receive for each individual item, the closer I will look at it for consideration. After the jump you will find the specific categories with a few examples for clarification purposes. If you have any questions, please ask them. Otherwise, get to nominating already!

  1. Das Kalk says:

    FIRST! i will go for the biggest halo news being the new trailer, and the fact that it is almost certainly in game!

    • Aaron Thorpe says:

      Best community for Halocharts.

      Because it no ordinary community. Everyone their is awsome and really really friendly, It feels like a really big clan and it also feels like you have known the guys their for years and years :)

      It also changes the way you play halo!

      • Thug Naztyyy says:

        I want to nominate HC Redemption from Halocharts as best individual contributor. I also want to nominate Halocharts as best Community Contributer.

      • Britneys fears says:

        Couldn’t have said it any better regarding Halocharts. Very well put Aaron.

        So, for me, Best Community is Indeed HaloCharts and best individual contributor is definately HC Redemption with all the tireless, behind-the-scenes, time and effort he puts into making everyone’s Halo 3 experience the best it can be.

        • Vintage says:

      Thanks

  2. Gagazet says:

    The biggest community contributor is of course, at least in Germany, Halo Universe! (halouniverse.de/index.php)

    Too sad, it won’t be listed and won’t have a chance in America :(

  3. xxxJL AUDIOxxx says:

  4. ReverendTiki says:

    Idk what group this would belong in but that top ten list with the best announcer EVER should definately win something. You know the funny guy who made sniper noises.

  5. B Falcon says:

    Ok, not so sure about the others, but the biggest Halo news HAS to be the announcement of Halo: Reach!

  6. Rippolighter says:

    Best Machinima HARD JUSTICE or ONE LIFE REMAINING . I think Jon CJG (a.k.a. Digitalph33r) deserves it more than anyone. He has brilliant writing, Fantastic camera work and compelling characters, and he does all this by himself.

    • DethPwn says:

      If by “brilliant writing” you mean lazily tossing away a series after becoming bored with it. And by “compelling characters” you mean 2-dimensional stand-ins for your average fanboy/level-headed gamer.

      Bah, like I could do better.

    • Since May 8th 2008, the SIP community has grown into one of the worlds most valuable Halo Help sites. We provided assistance in getting 1,750 GS fairly and legitimately. SIP has been featured twice on Halo.Bungie.Org (HBO) for their stunning guides to Vidmaster Challenge: Annual & Déja Vu.

      But also, in recent times, and with our ever expanding population exceeding 8500+, we have become more diverse in helping people snag achievements. We now bring focus to many other games for Xbox360 such as “Gears of War 2”, “Borderlands”, “Call of Duty (any version)”, “Forza 3” and much much more!

    I nominate HC Redemption for best individual contributor. He has done so much for the HC community and for me personally, he never hesitates to help someone in need. He has put in countless hours into HC and the Campaign Challenges. It is a honour to work with him.

    Best Community Contributor (Individual): HC Redemption — I have never seen someone devote as much of themself to something that they love like Redemption has with Halocharts. He has constantly given of himself and his time selflessly and helped to shape a Campaign Challenge that breathed new life into the Halo 3 campaign.

    Best Fan Made Contribution: Halocharts Campaign Challenge – This was a true group effort on the part of a huge number of fans. As I mentioned before, it breathed new life into the campaign and drew in hundreds of participants. Simply put, it was amazing!

    Biggest Community Contributor: Dropship dude.

    Why? Well, he’s always posting great things, either filled with knowledge, or with maniacal humour. He was one of the few people given Recon for just being himself, and is highly respected amongst the Halo community. I played a few games with him once, and nearly everyone knew who he was. Not to mention his Average Joe spotlight recently. So yeah, that’s my vote.

  138. HC Redemption definitely deserves the award for Biggest Community Contributor (Individual) for the Halo Charts Campaign Challenges. His creative idea of taking a fairly unused part of the Halo 3 game and turning it into a long running series of challenges on Halo Charts that brought multitudes of players out of their match making boxes to begin to appreciate another angle of Halo 3 is an accomplishment second to none. The understated statistics that amassed through these challenges does not even include the numerous failed attempts of players trying to best their previous scores.

    Some of the impressive stats include, but are not limited to:

    Total games=2,798
    Total score=124,348,899
    Time played=2,258:15:37
    Enemy kills=443,551
    Vehicle Kills=27,203
    Deaths=73,991
    Ally Betrayals=2,598
    There are 250 different combination’s of player page awards that Redemption made.

    Thank you Redemption!
