This year's Game Awards is one week away and it looks like games like Pokémon Uranium and AM2R won't be added to the list.

According to Kotaku Nintendo, fan-made games won't be joining the awards nominees for "Best Fan Creation" category. Both of these games, as well as other Nintendo-themed fan projects, were subject to DMCA takedown notices from Nintendo despite reaching popular acclaim from fans.

In a tweet a developer on Pokémon Uranium stated "Sign. Well, it was worth a shot." DocterM64 didn't supply a response to the takedown but did state it "was a nice surprise. An honor to share the category with @PokemonUranium" when AM2R was on the list before being removed.

Opinion: Nintendo is already known for quickly shutting down any fan projects that use their copyrighted material so this isn;t surprising. However, one can expect the community's feedback for this decision to be negative.
