Game of the Year (GotY) 2013 - nominations

Post by Adam Gillard » Thu Dec 26, 2013 10:49 pm

Hello, people! It's that time of year again!

I'm setting up this thread for information and discussion about GotY 2013. For now (before the nominations go 'live'), this thread is the forum for any questions about the rules and the general format of the nominations and the GotY 2013 poll. I'm planning to accept nominations for a one-month period after all of the GotW results for 2013 have been confirmed (probably mid-January 2014). After nominations close (probably mid-February 2014), I'll post a new thread with the chosen nominees for the poll itself. At this stage, I'm just setting up this thread as a reminder that the GotY 2013 poll will soon be upon us and I haven't forgotten about it! There was much discussion about the nominations and voting systems implemented last year - see the GotY 2012 thread for that.

Nominations

The rules for the nominations are as follows:
  • 1) Each person may nominate up to 25 games.
    2) You may nominate any game from 2013. The GotW archive would be a good place to start looking (it lists the top 3 games from each GotW vote; you can see the other games that made it to the GotW vote by clicking on the date in the 'Week' column).
    3) If you nominate a game that didn't make the top 3 in GotW results, then I'll mention it on a list that will be maintained on this thread so that others will be able to see it (one mention per game, regardless of how many nominations it receives).
After nominations have closed and all nominations have been counted, I'll select a natural cut-off point at n nominations, such that all games with ≥n nominations make up the final poll. I'm aiming for a cut-off somewhere around 15 nominees for the final poll.

Nominations should be submitted to me by aptomail or by private message on this forum. Please provide the date and full score of each game that you nominate, preferably with a link to the game log (e.g. Apterous Prune 0 - 140 Liam Tiernan, 1 January 2013).

Voting

The voting works as follows:
  • Each person should submit one of 12 options for each game when voting: A (Abstain), 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10, where 0 is worst and 10 is best. The games are ranked by the average score received from the 0-10 votes (abstentions excluded), with the highest average score declared as the winner. You should submit a vote for every game included in the poll (I'll follow up if you have missed any out), and abstentions are only allowed for games you were involved in.
If you've already submitted your full complement of 25 nominations and then you see a game posted on here that you hadn't noticed initially but want to nominate, you will be allowed to nominate that game in place of a game that you had already nominated (i.e., you'll have to discard one of your nominations - the limit will remain at 25). I've included this facility to change a nomination purely so that people who get their nominations in early won't miss out on the games that are posted in this thread. The poll itself will be opened shortly after nominations have closed.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Nominations won't be open for another few weeks yet, but feel free to start having a look back through some great games from 2013!

I don't mind doing mine in public - is it ok just to reply to this thread with it or not?

Edit: So I looked at 2012 and you didn't seem keen - I'll do it in private message form.

Yes, private message or aptomail, please. A reminder that nominations will not open until mid-January, after the final GotW results for 2013 have been confirmed.

None of the games in the current GotW vote took place in 2013, so I will open the nominations now.

Rules for the nominations are in the original post in this thread. A reminder - I'll make a new post below this one for listing the games that didn't make the top 3 of GotW results. If you've already submitted your full complement of 25 nominations and then you see a game posted on here that you hadn't noticed initially but want to nominate, then you will be allowed to nominate that game in place of a game that you had already nominated (i.e., you'll have to discard one of your nominations - the limit will remain at 25). The GotY 2013 poll will be opened shortly after nominations have closed.


NOMINATIONS FOR GotY 2013 ARE NOW OPEN AND WILL CLOSE ON SUNDAY 16 FEBRUARY 2014 AT 11.59pm. NOMINATIONS SHOULD BE SUBMITTED TO ME BY APTOMAIL OR BY PRIVATE MESSAGE ON THIS FORUM. PLEASE PROVIDE THE DATE AND FULL SCORE OF EACH GAME THAT YOU NOMINATE, PREFERABLY WITH A LINK TO THE GAME LOG (e.g. Apterous Prune 0 - 140 Liam Tiernan, 1 January 2013).


Please let me know if you have any questions. Happy nominating!

Remember that you can nominate any number of games up to and including 25. So if you only have one or two games to nominate, please do send the nominations in - it could make all the difference!

Still a few weeks left to nominate. Remember that you can always send through a handful of nominations initially and then some more when you find the time to look through more games.

Nominations close TOMORROW NIGHT! What better way to spend your weekend than trawling through a year's worth of games on apterous? Seriously, any ideas?
