    Like so:

    The Grayest Game Award:
    Wizardry 6- wow this game is gray. There are other gray games that are bordering on monochrome but this one is somehow AGGRESSIVELY gray. Yeah, it has some color but it makes up for it by having a constant shade of gray that can only be described as “existential nightmare gray”. Very impressive.

    Runner ups: Dungeon Master, Fallout 3

    Stupidest Hair in an RPG Award:
    Vagrant Story
    [​IMG]

    Seemingly inspired by a lightning bolt, or maybe errant pubic hair, hair does not get much stupider than this.

    Runner ups: to list runner ups would be an insult to just how stupid this guy’s hair is. The runner ups would not even be on the same plateau

    I'm aware of Xvarts, it was just funny to
    so many of them in BG1 where they are basically nonexistent in most other CRPGs.


    Oh, also, the meta award for 'Goofy Awards in RPGs'...

    "The Player Character with most heads award" goes to Wizardry 8.

    Yes, that's one creature with 6 humanoid heads, each with its own brain capable of understanding the concept of character class.
