Golden Breadbin Awards

Each year, we reward those games that impressed us with their music, their visuals, or their gameplay. We also give praise to those that baffled us with their ineptitude. Listed below, you’ll find the winner in each category as decided by us here at Zapped to the Past. Feel free to disagree, of course, but we’re not putting Elite in the best game category.
