The Gematsu community Games of the Year 2016 vote

Hello, Gematsu community! Community mod-bossguy Zero here.

I’ve had lots of people ask me where is the Game of the Year stuff? Well, if you have been following our open forum, you know that we got a bit of a late start this year. The process is a step by step thing, and we delayed it a bit because of the busy holidays. Thanks so much for being patient. Okay, let’s get down to business.

In case you didn’t take party last year, or need a refresher in how our process works. We ask the community to nominate their favorite games of the year, with the choices being across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, PC, Mobile, 3DS, and PS Vita. From there, we write down every single game mentioned and give each game a point per every mention. This process helps narrow down the nominees to four games across each platform. The community is the key, all of you are involved in every step of the process with our game of the year vote. It’s what makes our vote special in my opinion, much different from other Game of the Year votes.

So, what’s changed from last year? First, we decided to add some new additional categories this year. We asked the community about this, the goal was to add some diversity to the overall voting. Why should it be just about a platform? With this in mind, the community managed to come up with some interesting ideas. In case you are wondering, we used the same point system I described above to pick out our additional categories, and the nominees. I’m sure you noticed we added a Mobile vote to the platforms listed above. Last but not least, I know we have lots of community members who import games, we decided to include it as an additional category.

Okay, so here’s how it all works: just place a vote below for each category! “But wait Zero. Where the heck is the overall Game of the Year vote?!” The idea here is to take the winners from each category and create a new poll for overall Game of the Year. So vote however you like, but remember to vote for your favorite if you want to see it in the Game of the Year poll. We did this exact same thing last year.

Keep in mind, the special categories listed below will not be included in the overall game of the year vote.

I’m proud of our community for giving us some great choices in all of our categories. I’m excited to see how the votes play out. Please share this with your friends so they can vote as well!

Let the voting begin!
