Quarterlies 2019! The Qt3 forum readers' choice for best game of 2019 is ...

Just want to drop a link to the planning thread for the games of the decade vote coming up:

That’s why you can only nominate games the year you first play them.

That doesn’t stop a game winning multiple years.

So you’ve established a down side of making such a change yet the issue that started this conversation remains.

I guess that doesn’t bother me. I just don’t see it as something that will be a chronic problem. It may happen once in a while, but I don’t think there will be enough games that keep drawing in enough new players each year that also want to put it in their top 10 or top 5. Gamers With Jobs does it this way and it’s not an issue.

Thanks @Brooski and @arrendek for doing this. You guys rock! I’m also totally getting disco elysium now.

Dang it, I never got to vote because I never saw the original post (not that it would’ve changed anything though).

We probably should have asked one of the admins to pin the post to the top of the forum. We should make sure that happens for the GOTDecade thread. They are really good at pinning things!

hey @admin, get off you lazy butt and get to the pinning boy!

Then go vote at Gamers with Jobs. This isn’t that place.

I do. There is nothing wrong with me sharing my opinion. Sometimes you’re an ass.

now now, kids, play nice. Now hug and make up.

…and sometimes people try to change a place into something they like better elsewhere when they already have that place to go to. I don’t want this place to be Gone Gold 2.0 or Gamers with Jobs. Those places don’t interest me. This started as a site with a lot of industry writers and developers hanging out with a lot of gamers who shared our interests. That underlying genesis of this place would be chipped away at by what you’re suggesting and another place exists that does exactly what you want.

Call me an ass if you like. I’m just being direct in my response.

And I’d say we should do whatever the majority wants. If that is limiting the vote to release year I’m ok with that. If it is what I suggest than I’m good with that too.

…which means we have a difference of opinion, and my response to that is there is a place for what you want. This isn’t it. I don’t see a consensus that agrees with you. I also vehemently oppose your option. As @SamS notes above. You’ve got a thread every month/week for that.

I now vehemently support whatever rob’s position was. I don’t really care to scroll up and find out, but you two can sort it out ;-)

I agree with Dave in principle, but his bedside manner is really turning me off and making me want to side with Rob.

He’s in the wrong though even if Dave is being a bit of a jerk.

Well you’re both obviously incorrect because of all the reasons that I definitely thought about before choosing whatever side I’m on in whatever argument we’re all having currently. I really hope you will consider my evidence at least as deeply as I have.

As someone who is, due to budgeting and small kids, very much not likely to play many if any releases the year they come out I actually prefer Robs method. Especially for late in the year releases.
