    The nomination period will begin in mid-December. Start compiling your lists and making decisions about your 10 favorite games from the past year, however DO NOT post them until the nomination period or they will not count.

    For more information please refer back to the previous year's poll:
    http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=112564

    ALL games from 2012 are available for nomination, but if you want some inspiration, here is an incredibly helpful post by Echoseven:
    http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpost.php?p=2548785&postcount=34

    This post will be updated with instructions as the time comes closer.

    UPDATE 12/6/12: The nomination period will begin on December 20th, after the last release night of 2012, and will run until January 3rd, after the first release night of 2013.


    UPDATE 12/20/12: I am now accepting nominations for your top 10 games of the year! Your list does not have to be in any specific order. If more then ten are posted, I will only count the first ten games. Please do not edit your post after you have chosen your nominations. Also, for the time being, please do not post anything but nominations in this thread until the 3rd.

    UPDATE 1/3/13: The poll is now up. Please vote! The poll closes on 10 Jan 2013.
     
  2. Wow, so this is for the heavyweights I guess...

    Can we nominate anything? Or just games that won game of the week?

    -Final nomination list at the end of the thread-

    Games that could have make it, but ultimately arent GOTY material for one reason or another:
    Inferno+, Waking Mars, Outwitters, Bad Piggies, Bitless, PlicPlic, Mini Dash, Angry Birds Star Wars, Pudding Monsters, Minigore 2: Zombies, Monster Flip, About Love, Hate and the Other Ones. All of them have very good quality and all have rating of 4 or 4.5 out of 5 stars

    Feel free to chat about any games you feel are GOTY worthy. I'm just making members aware that nothing will count until the nomination period.

    Well, in that case, here's some of the ones that I've thought of. Obviously, I'd have to narrow it down. I'm sure there's also games that I haven't thought of so it'll be good to hear some other people's thoughts to jog my old man memory:

    So far:

    Incoboto Mini
    Punch Quest
    Asphalt 7
    Gene Effect
    Blood Roofs
    Polara
    Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin
    Rayman Jungle Run
    Orc: Vengance
    Inferno+
    Swordigo
    Kingdom Rush
    Dynamite Jack
    VR Missions EXT
    Toon Shooters
    Epic Hearts Plus (way underrated action RPG IMO)
    Fantasy Chronicle
    Angry Birds Star Wars (yeah, I had to go there)
    Dream of Pixels
    Mikey Shorts
    Wimp
    Project 83113
     
  15. If The World Ends With You doesn't win this, I'm going to quit coming to Touch Arcade.

    I kid... but seriously, buy it.
