    Been looking at each one's lists, and so far, the lists look too different only with a few common ones, but im really really glad there arent anything that i find to be trash.

    Cheers for a generally good taste TA.

    Seconded. A game that has a place in my top ten (all time), and I can play it anywhere I go.

    On a semi-related note, did anyone find it strange that Ridiculous Fishing was chosen as Apple's GoTY? It's a great game and I know it's been nominated at least once, but it just seems like Apple would have gone for one of the bigger, higher-profile games.

    Please don't exclude indies from this poll if you think they are worthy of overall GoTY. My poll is sort of a side event to give indies recognition without having to compete with the big games, but there's always a chance an indie could win here as well and don't want to take away that possibility.

    As we've seen in the Indie thread, bigger and higher-profile doesn't mean better. And Ridiculous Fishing/Vlambeer are pretty high profile, unfortunately due the cloning controversy. They're pretty well known

    I certainly agree with bigger isn't always better. Just was still a bit surprising IMO.

    +1, please list a comprehensive nomination of your favorite games here. Not ONLY ports or big names.
     
  9. It would be a shame if it ended up happening that way, but it does seem natural for people to do to nominate more games unfortunately.

    Badland and Slayin are not on the list. Thus it is null and void
    :p

    Your nominations made it, I double checked - you're that one guy who nominated Orborun ;). I wanted to do a test with my counting system and manually entering each participants name seems susceptible to flaws.

    I'll re-count from scratch after the nomination period ended, but I also wanted to get a list for myself of whose nominations were embedded in early banter about rules to make it quicker later.
