Per this article on the front page, Final Voting is now open for our 16th annual Game of the Year Awards.
Voting Has Now Closed
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q - When does voting close?
A – Final Voting closes on 3rd January, 2023.
Q - Can I change my vote/edit my voting form after submitting it?
A - Yes, you can edit your voting form up until we close voting.
Q - Do I have to select a game for every award?
A - Nope. Select your favourite for as many or as few categories as you wish.
Q - Why can’t I vote for game XXXXXXX?
A – Unfortunately it didn’t make the cut during Preliminary Voting!
Q – I’d like to see an award for Best XXXXXX, it’s a shame you don’t do one.
A – Let us know in the comments; we’re always open to suggestions, especially for new or replacement categories.
Q – How is the winner in each category determined?
A – By a mixture of community and staff voting, weighted 50/50. On the community side we use the Google Form that’s linked above, while on the staff side we vote individually on the staff forums. The staff’s results are converted into percentages for each game in each category. These percentages are combined with the percentages from the community’s results, with the total then being divided by two to get an average. This average determines both the final Shortlist of games to be featured in each award article and the Winners themselves.
Q - When and how will the Winners be announced?
A – Winners will be announced in a series of articles (as well as a thread I'll post) that we'll start publishing in early January.Last edited by Machina - on 02 January 2023
