2023 NWR Forum Awards - Best Multiplatform Game


The 2023 NWR Forum AwardsBest Multiplatform GameThis award is for a game that released on more than one console in 2023. The results of the poll will only be revealed once the voting is done (December 15). You should be able to change your vote until then. Make sure to sound off in the comments if the game is on your backlog as we have a separate award for that. Even though the official nominees list is closed, you can still reply with a write-in. Best of luck to all the nominees.

I thought that Octopath Traveler II was a switch exclusive until I prepared this event. It also feels like that game came out sometime before this year. Theatrhythm was another one that seems like it could have been switch only. This was suppose to be a place for all the non-tendo games, but most of these are available on switch.
Diablo IV is the one I am most interested in. I picked up a copy during the recent sales for PS5. I am hoping to play it online with a friend but it is still on my backlog.
Baldur's Gate 3 is probably the frontrunner in most game awards but not necessarily with this one. I do think Street Fighter has a really cool art style and sometimes just watch people playing on Twitch.

In case you did not catch The Game Awards yesterday, here are some of the awards for nominees in this category:

* Alan Wake 2 won Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, and Best Art Direction
* Baldur's Gate 3 won Game of the Year, Best Performance (Neil Newbon), Best Community Support, Best RPG, and Best Multiplayer
* Street Fighter 6 won Best Fighting Game

I haven't played any of these games.
