I just got this 10 year old game this year off a Steam sale, it’s the best game of 2019!
This. Keep the Game of the Year as it is. Then just have the ‘Quarterlates’ or something, where anything that isn’t eligible for the GotY can be included.
It’s fine that you disagree. I just don’t think it’s necessary to be as ass when you do it. @SamS was able to disagree without being a jerk about it. Like I said if more people want to restrict it by release year than I’m cool with that.
Thank you :-)
You are the voice of reason Jason. I’d certainly have no issue with that.
Ok, I actually had a look at the 2017 vote, and it’s hilarious.
I still haven’t played any of the major games of 2017 that I hadn’t played already that year. Horizon Zero Dawn, the game of the year that year, is still in my backlog. I was looking through that long list, and the single game that jumped out that I have played since we voted was Nex Machina. So maybe there is no point to holding the vote later.
Yeah I don’t see a problem with adding a couple of categories to the voting process. Does anyone think that would make it too complicated?
Each person votes 1-5 games of that year (no early access), 1-3 games from previous years that you played for the first time and 1-3 early access games.
In the interest of keeping things simple early access is any game that is still in early access at the end of the year we’re voting on. So if a game is in EA for a long time it could potentially win that category more than once.
I don’t know if it would be easier to do it in the same poll or a different one. My guess is a separate one so the script could work the same way as it does now without modification.
I can spend some time to do the script however people want it. I’m also down for running more votes.
That’s sort of how it is at Broken Forum with a LTTP vote and a “yeah I’m still playing this” vote.
Sort of, but these would be ranked and scored like the top 5 are.
Lets see, the year I voted for one game, and it was an iOS board game port.
I have played a few more games since. And by few, I mean two. Breath of the Wild would be a game I would play if I had a Switch though.
But Xcom 2 and BSG Deadlock were 2019 play starts for me.
I am not sure what @robc04 's poisition was, but I am against what ever he chose, because he seems to dislike Anno games. :)
Hey now, we have a lot more games in common than not …
Well there’s … um… I don’t like hidden object games…um…not a fan of idle clickers…I have trouble looking at pixel graphics… well there’s…The Witcher 3!!! I found something!!!
More seriously, I usually enjoy maybe 10 hours of a new Anno game then I get tired of it.
You’re a good egg lordkosc :-)
Indeed my fellow good egg. And you keep buying and trying the Anno games, so that counts for something! :)
Maybe the titles should be a ‘living’ and the best game of 2017 say could still change if enough votes come in over time.
Game of the Year X, so far.
This seems really easily solvable.
Continue to have the Quarterlies be the favorite game released each year.
Add another, separate award for favorite game of the year, which is time-unlimited. Since, you know, this forum lets us create multiple topics and stuff. ;-)
This is the sensible option, I’d say. Everybody gets what they want!
Somebody has to be interested in running it though, I assume it takes quite a bit of time to set up a poll and then manage it.
