The end of the year always brings about many "[Something] of the Year" awards. Many are a chance for you to show your appreciation for various things. We're no exception - the CIC's community awards are designed to celebrate the Fan Project and Web Site of the Year. Meanwhile eddieb is holding a vote for the Flight Commander mod of the year award. All you need to vote is a forums account. Outside of the WC community, the Greatest 50 Games site lists Wing Commander as a nominee for their list. WC is currently only six votes away from beating World of Warcraft, a game with 5 million subscribers worldwide. All four polls close on December 31, with the results being announced on January 1.

Other sites have announced the results of their awards already. Gamespot are running their Best and Worst of 2005 awards. The only space sim up nominated was Nexus: The Jupiter Incident for their Best Game No One Played award, but it didn't win. Christopher Walken, known for playing David Hassan in Privateer 2, has the dubious honor of winning their Worst Use of Celebrity Voices award for his role in True Crime: New York City. The people at Spike TV may dispute this as they awarded Walken their Best Supporting Male Performance trophy for his performance in the game. Unfortunately such awards are always going to disappoint somebody.
