Giant Bomb Community Game of the Year - The Unsung Game of the Year (Voting)
Welcome as we continue a month long project I am hosting to allow the fans of the site to offer their chance to vote for the GOTY awards. Over the next month I will be posting a new award every day and will let the fans vote on the winner as well as the runners up. Here are links to the winners of the previous categories:
- 2011's 2010 Game of the Year
- Best New Character
- Best New Song
- Best Debut
- Best Downloadable Game
- Best Competitive Multiplayer
- Best Cooperative Multiplayer
- Best Downloadable Add-On
The Voting Process
So here's how we are going to do this. You will have free reign to nominate anything you want as long as it fits with the category and was released in 2011. When you reply to the post put your winner and runner up. So for example If I was voting for this category I would put down
Winner: Dead Space 2
Runner Up: Radiant Historia
The way the scoring system will work is that the winner from each person will get 2 points and the runner up will get one point. At the end of the day I will tally up all the points and whoever has the most wins and consequently the 2nd and 3rd highest will be the runners up. For GOTY we will do a winner and four runners up but the voting process will still be the same.
Because I want to give more people an opportunity to cast their votes all the voting will be done over the course of the week and they will close on Friday December 16th at 11:59 pm EST. The Winners for each category will then be announced on Saturday.
This award is for games that were amazing and powerful and special and a game that either did not get any recognition or a game that did not make as much of an impact as it deserved.
