Should I Organize The GOTY Polls Again?
  • Back in 2012 I helmed the Game Of The Year awards and for those who participated they weren't exactly the best we've had considering not many people voted. As a flashback, here are the games that took home awards (for those of you who didn't participate, or who weren't members).

    So, as you can see. The results are kind of meh, and I was curious if there would be any interest for me to organize this event again this year towards the end of 2014? I'll make a poll, and when the time comes I'll get her all sorted out and ready to go.

    1. Should We Have The Noob's Choice Awards For 2014?11 votes
        Yes!
        100.00%
      1. Nah, man.
          0.00%
  • I'd like to see it, but I think we have to be realistic and cut down on the categories. And maybe co-ordinating it with a Twitter vote or something would get a few more votes.
  • Totally! I agree with GEFM though, perhaps lessen the amount of categories. :)

    It's weird to see Diablo 3 be the disappointment of the year in 2012, yet that game is going really strong in 2014.
  • I'd like to think the expansion helped a lot.

    But yeah, I'd be narrowing down the categories.
  • Do it, buddy!
  • @Bongo

    General consensus seems to be yes, so I'll organize it around November/December.
  • Hooray!
  • Any suggestions for category numbers? Keep it simple?

    Game Of The Year
    Surprise Of The Year
    Disappointment Of The Year
    Best Soundtrack

    Any others that we should keep? 5-6 categories seems best.
  • I'd say we could do a few more. How about these as well:

    Worst Game


    Best Soundtrack
    Best Visuals

    Best Mobile Game (3DS, Vita, iOS, Android)
    Most Anticipated 2015

    Top 5 Games

    Best Game No-One Played


    I think it's the more specific stuff like 'Best Remake' or 'Best Expansion' that should be left out.
  • This seems like a no-brainer i would love you to organise this again :).

    Again i agree it would probably be best to cut down the number of categories, the template above looks good.
  • Awesome. I can handle that. Should I bring back the fancy graphics I made too? Examples below.

  • That looks really cool! If you want to fancy graphics you go for it pal. It would certainly be really appreciated by the community :)
  • If you've got the time!  

Howdy, Stranger!
