The Official Game of the Year Voting - Overall Part One

Forums - Gaming Discussion - The Official Game of the Year Voting - Overall Part One

Hey everyone,

Welcome, once again,to our Official Game of the Year Awards. Just as with last year, we're also going to include the winners selected by you, the forum users, as well as those selected by the site staff. So simply follow the instructions below to get voting:

1) You vote simply by listing your winners (there's a sample ballot below which serves as an example) and posting them in this thread. There are other threads out there for each console, handheld and overall.

2) Voting is open straight away, but you only have until the 17th of December to get your votes in, so make sure you vote before that deadline otherwise you'll miss out on your chance to influence the winning games. You may edit your votes up until that deadline - votes won't be counted until the threads are locked.

3) Only votes from users with more than 100 posts will be counted.

4) Staff votes don't count here - all staff should head over to the staff forums to vote.

5) Please try and pick as many games as possible, up to a maximum of 5 games in each category. Note that voting is weighted to give those listing more games a stronger voice.

6) The list of nominees below is not definitive, feel free to vote for games that haven't been listed as long as they were released in NA or Europe during 2010, but do not vote for games that were released in the US in 2009.

7) Please check out the sample ballot below. If you fail to follow it and your votes are not clear then they will not be counted. If you're uncertain about anything just make a post in this thread or send Naznatips, myself or Torillian a wall post/pm.


Thank you for participating in the VGChartz Game of the Year Awards. Happy voting!
