Nickelodeon Addicting Games Showdown was an event that took place twice once on June 27, 2009 and on June 19, 2010. The show would air in segments in-between other TV shows that were popular on Nickelodeon at the time like iCarly, and True Jackson VP. Nickelodeon actually bought out AddictingGames.com to hold the event. It would nominate certain games on the website in categories like "Most Courageous Stickman," and "Best Game From Planet Awesome." The viewers could vote from each of the nominations.[1]

On the Addicting Games website. The event was only held twice, and both only aired once, so both of them are lost.

Controversy

There was a small controversy involving this event that WomenofGrace.com addressed. WomenofGrace.com claimed the event was exposing young Nickelodeon viewers to inappropriate games, or more specifically the "Naughty" series of games.
