I was just thinking of an idea. How about we, the vg247 community start a community award for best games of the year.
Remember, this may be our last chance to do it, after all world ends this year :)
Anyways, onto the idea-
1.Anyone wanting to add a game in the competition can just make a forum post with title containing the name of the game and year like-
Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise-2012 (It would be epic if this game wins!)
I added the year in the title to avoid any confusion if we continue this next year.
2.Anyone who wants to vote just has to post a comment in the respective game post, and say "YES" in the end. I added the yes part because it would make counting easier, and eliminate the need to read the entire post to make count.
3.For obvious reasons, everyone is allowed ONLY ONE POST. Failing to do so will result in your comment not being counted. I suggest making a forum post listing all the offenders so that while counting, there comments are ignored.
4.Counting will be done in January, by selected forum members who can be trusted (ideally selected by editors, if they like this idea). Multiple people will do the counting to minimize the chances of a calculating error.
5.Instead of one, I recommend selecting First,Second, Third and a honorary mention, based on the votes.
6.Honesty. I hope everyone who comments genuinely feels the game deserves the accolades. Otherwise this entire exercise will lose its purpose.
Well then, how is that? If enough people like this idea, I suggest we start right away.
