This coming December will be the annual Game Awards and fans are getting ready to find out which of this year's games will receive awards. Unfortunately, two fan-made games, AM2R and Pokemon Uranium, have disappeared from the "Best Fan Creation" nominees.

According to Kotaku, the AM2R game is a fan remastering of the classic Nintendo game, "Metroid 2: Return of Samus". The project was then issued by Nintendo with Digital Millennium Copyright Act claim, which resulted to the game no longer downloadable at the project's website and can only be obtained via upload sites and torrents. Pokemon Uranium, which was developed for nine years, also removed the game from their web site to prevent Nintendo from suing them.

According to eurogamer, speculations say that Nintendo's American branch might have talked to Geoff Keighley, the Game Awards event creator. It was also back in August, when rumors say that the American branch of Nintendo forced the creators to remove the Pokemon Uranium from its website, which reached a surprising 1.5 million downloads.

So far, there have been no comments from Nintendo or from the 2016 Game Awards, about the fan-made games. But many say that Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime is on the event's advisory board.

The creators of the Nintendo fan games were not aware as well. One of the creators of the fan-made Pokemon Uranium Cody Spielvogel only found out about not being part of the awards list anymore during a request comment by eurogamer. "I guess that's to be expected, given the tension between fan made games and the series creators," Spielvogel replied.

The "Best Fan Creation" award will now be contested by only two nominations, due to the other two being pulled out. The two games are "Brutal Doom 64" and a Skyrim mod, "Enderal: The Shards of Order". The Game Awards will be held on the first day of December.
