About the Awards
So what exactly are the Gunpei Yokoi Memorial Handheld Gaming Awards? In 2013, Michael A. Cunningham of RPGamer.com came up with the idea of bringing together handheld gaming enthusiasts from all over the world to highlight excellence in portable console gaming (3DS, PSP, Vita). These awards are named in honor of Gunpei Yokoi, the creator of Game & Watch and the Game Boy. The united group consists of gaming press and enthusiasts who love and appreciate handheld gaming and want to show it the love it deserves. An advisory panel was formed first in order to share ideas during the formation. Next, the group was narrowed down to an awards committee for the finalization process. For 2013, we decided to start small and only give out two major awards: Most Creative and Excellence in Handheld Gaming. Due to illness, the 2015 awards were limited only to 
Excellence in Handheld Gaming.

Below are the individuals who have helped during this process.
