I'll merge them. Expect that, the Diablo change, your list and a few others, and some extra functionality later in the evening.

@thatfrood: I went and looked through all the games on the results page along with my list, and assuming every bit of data is on that web page, my list didn't get counted at all. I'm not listed under any of the games I put in my list.

You aren't in the google doc, did you submit your list's url? I can add you now.

So this is not the official "Game of The Year 2014 Users Choice" list that Jeff announced on whatever stream it was but something entierly different? Im confused and my list doesnt seem to be included but its all well, its a good list after all.

I dont agree with every game ofc. and being an GB list its console focused but i can clearly see good arguments for every game on the list.

If you'd like, you can still send your list's url to this google form. I wont be updating the final list, but I can update the site.

Hold on, what is this "Game of the Year 2014 Users Choice" list that Jeff announced?

Around the end of December Jeff said the site would tabulate user lists. If you check your lists page, you'll see a list was added to it called "Game of the Year 2014 Users Choice". If you put your games in that list, Jeff is saying the site will tabulate those.

@slag: GODDAMNIT! I made a note of that even. Yeah, I don't know what to do there, I think I should fuse them, but which should I keep? Is the console version more significant? Or should it stay PC?

Hoo boy that's a very tough call to make.

On one hand maybe it should be the console version as I don't believe Reaper of Souls is a playable standalone expansion, and thus maybe not a true 2014 game (since it requires an older one to play it). But boy that doesn't quite feel right since I think most people felt Reaper made some profound mechanical changes to Diablo 3 that turned into the game people thought it would be at launch and it also has the most votes of the two by a significant margin.

Gun to the head, I'd say Reaper of Souls. I think that probably reflects what the community was thinking more.

I'd agree with the call to make it Reaper

(I'd also argue that an expansion can totally be on a GOTY list)

It is done. I will see about how to join the two on the site later, while also making it clear that a join is happening.

@beachthunder: It's actually on the games page that lists all of the games, under "total votes". But you're right, I should add it to the game page too. I'm gonna head to bed, but if people have suggestions of data they'd like to see on pages, suggest them and I'll see what I can do tomorrow.

Personally, what I want to implement is an indicator that shows if someone wrote something for their lists or not. I don't want to recreate the gb lists on goty.me, because then I'd be rehosting giantbomb content, but something that would indicate if someone had something to say about their list would be nice.

And I was also thinking a separate page with comparison graphs of the top ten.

If people find bugs with goty.me it goes without saying that they should point them out to me, I'll be tinkering with it for the next few days!
