    Hello all and welcome to the 2nd annual "TouchArcader's Pick for Game of the Year!". You may remember this from last year, but in case you don't, here's a link:

    http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=77789

    The same rules apply for this year, however, I have decided to start it a bit early. For the rest of November, take the time to start compiling your top ten list of you favorite games from this year. It has been a looooong year, so choose carefully.

    Starting on December 15th, I will begin taking nominations, which should all be listed in ONE post per person, so they're easy to count. DO NOT try to be sneaky and add in an 11th favorite or multiple posts, because trust me, I won't be adding it.

    Developers: No campaigning in this thread please.

    The top ten most nominated games will be subjected to a poll, which will be added 1 week after nominations begin. From then until January 1st at midnight, you will publicly vote for the ONE game that you like most from the list. The game with the most votes at the end will be the Touch Arcade Forums choice for the 2011 GAME OF THE YEAR!

    Have fun! :D

    Haha. Not really. It's kinda why I mad it early; too many releases in 2011 to count.

    You can always just check your purchases on Apple, but it won't tell you the release dates.

    Easiest way I can think of is (as long as you know what games you're looking for) search them in the TA thread. Find their real game thread and look at the date on top of the first page, and that's generally as close as you'll get to the actual release date.

    Wow, how can I choose 10 from hundreds?! Well going to nominate indie games, because big games will win anyway.
     
  7. Why end December 30 if we're voting for GOTY? I know Apple is off during Christmas, but we should have a bit more time to let the newer games sink in and let the "new release hype" die a bit first IMO.

    You can check weekly winners of TA GOTW in the winners list thread :
    http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=110389.

    From that thread you can click on the link to weekly poll which have list of games out during that week (on the first page of each poll thread). There are also link to January-April best game of the month poll. Combine it with TA's monthly best games and you will get quite some comprehensive catalogue.

    I really can't decide yet because there are WAY too many great games that will be coming out soon (GTA, Infinity Blade 2, Junk Jack, BF3,etc.) so therefore, nominations aren't very valid right now.

    Another way of checking when the game was released is AppShopper's AppActivity list for each game.

    Can't wait for this to start! Wasn't here last year, so you can probably guess why...

    NOTE: NOMINATIONS ARE NOT STARTING UNTIL DECEMBER.

    Does this answer your question:
    Alright, so just chill for now guys and start thinking about your favorites. The nominations won't really start until December. :)

    How can this be fair on the games releasing first few weeks of December? I think this should have waited till the 2nd week of december that way it's fair on all the developers. Don't forget we still have some big games to come out, Battlefield 3, Evertales, Superman, Paper Monsters, Gangstar Rio, Junk Jack and more and I think a couple of those will make it into my top 10 and likely others.

    Made some slight changes to the rules that should make a few more people happy. The nominations will be going on for 3 weeks now, and the poll time has been extended to January 1st.

    It's for best game not one you are most hyped for. Relax yourself I'm sure there were other games that you HAVE played that came out this year. There were a ton of people that would say Shawdowgun was GOTY before it came out, not so much after...

    You will be sad.

    I'm just sayin', while TCGs are popular, they have a much more niche appeal than any other games I've heard people say "GOTY for sure!" about so far this year.
