The Mercyside Awards

Hey there. I've always wanted to compile my favourite "things" are on a yearly basis. So this list are what I think are the best in each category.

Obviously there are many, MANY games/albums/films that are considered to be the best that I'm not mentioning, and there are two reasons for that. One, is that I can only do one entry per year. And secondly, I may not like/have seen or heard certain "classic" entries. I've done all the way to 1978 on certain entries.

I could have actually done further back than '78 when it comes to "Single of the Year" but I didn't want to just have one entry on its own. Also the reason why I'm only starting "Wrestler of the Year" from 2009 is because I took a two year absense from watching WWE from '07 to '09 and don't think it'd be genuine of me to consider myself with valid opinion on those years.

Since 2014 I've started compiling my TV Show of the Year too.

Lastly, I did consider doing "Liverpool FC Player of the Year" but I just think it's too narrow a contest to do, so there's no football category I'm afraid.

So, without further ado, let's reveal what I think are the best of each year!
