What is this?

I thought it might be fun to do a fantasy draft for the upcoming Giant Bomb 2018 GotY awards. Please read to the bottom of this post before posting or you will be disqualified!

SUBMISSIONS ARE CLOSED!

How to Play

Reply to this thread with your ORDERED LIST of top 5 games and 3 additional tie-breaker games.

Example

1: The Quiet Man

2: Metal Gear Survive

3: Dynasty Warriors 9

4: Shaq Fu

5: Pokemon Go

6: Game X

7: Game Y

8: Game Z

Any editing will be an immediate disqualification so be sure of your submission before submitting =D

Please do not include any text besides your entries. See below for discussion!

Interaction During GotY

There will be an interactive element during the daily release of the awards. You'll need to pay attention to this space to make sure you maximize your chances!

Scoring

Every game's point total will be calculated based on the following criteria:

Site List

RankPoints
11000
2900
3800
4700
5600
6500
7400
8300
9200
10100

Staff List

RankPoints
1100
290
380
470
560
650
740
830
920
1010

Positive Categories

PositionPoints
Winner200
Runner Up150

Negative Categories

PositionPoints
Winner-500
Runner Up-250

A single game can only win once within a single category.

Guest Lists

Due to the non-structured nature of guest lists, each game on their list will be afforded 30 points. This excludes any and all games that are off their main list and listed as something along the lines of "honorable mentions".

The point total for each game will then be modified based on what slot you put it in as follows:

Assigned RankPercentage
1100%
280%
360%
440%
520%

So for example, if a game got 100 points total and was in your 1 spot, you'd get the full 100 points while if it were in your number 5 spot you'd get 20 points.

In the event of a tie, the three tie breaker games will be used to determine the winner. with the scale of 100%, 75%, 50% for 6th, 7th, and 8th. If there is STILL a tie, whomever first posted their picks will be the winner. If you notice you have identical picks with someone else who is before you, you can DM me and change your picks ONE TIME. So make certain whatever changes you make don't make you identical to anyone else. Also be sure to make those changes to your post here so your edit time reflects when this change was made.

All scoring rules can be changed but I'll refrain from doing so unless there's a really good argument for it.

Checking Scores

I've created a shared document (view only) that lists everyone's picks and their current standings. As the GotY lists haven't started posting yet the scores are placeholders but you should get a good idea of how it will work. I will update the "Games" sheet as the site is updated and you should be able to check how you're doing pretty easily.

ONLY SUBMISSIONS ON THIS PAGE PLEASE

Keep all discussion about your fantasy picks or whatnot on the discussion page. I need this thing to be as clean as possible for whatever hell spreadsheet I build to keep track of scores.
