Participation in this years poll (currently at 47 voters) is very low compared to the previous years :-

 

2011 - 34 voters

2012 - 67 voters

2013 - 79 voters

2014 - 88 voters

2015 - 148 voters

 

Perhaps the fact that its no longer anonymous is putting people off.

As I recall last year most of the votes came near the end of the month, and possibly there's less double voting with different accounts. With it not being anonymous.

Just my thought on the low numbers so far.

Were the other polls pinned? Maybe un-pinning the 2015 grab bag, Christmas Carol, and Secret Santa would help.

I went with Gosub/Super Pro Gosub for the first poll.  I really love the collaboration between atariland2600 and gemini north making the game shine.  Cool story cutscene, good graphics, cool items and bonus game.  The only annoying part that the compass bring you out of the level completely, and I think that suppose to be mapped to the left bottom button(b1) and the anchor suppose to be right bottom button(b2).  Other than that I really love the varieties of the levels to show.

 

I didn't buy any remade game that year so I selected the last option.

 

I chose IntyBASIC showcase vol 1 boxart.  It's really weird but really cool to look at.  3 games in 1.  You can finally see what vut and xyz looks like. 

 

Gosub/Super Pro Gosub is my 2nd choice.  I went with Syndey Hunter:Sacred Tribe.  Really good NES-like quality game running on the Intellivision.  Meaning it has gameplay music, multiple screens, exploration and detailed 16x16 like tiles. I played the early and current version of it.  I haven't received the box copy of it yet. 

 

So these are my choice, so please put down your torchfork. Thank you.

I finally got around to playing the games to cast my votes. I like having the sub categories, even the Oscars have more awards than just "Best Picture". These Intelliwards are a fun part of the hobby for me. It would be neat to somehow hand out awards for the original 125.....not sure how to do it.......release dates maybe?
