    One extreme outcome of a multi vote scenario is that the game nobody voted for as the best, but everyone voted for as second best, wins the poll ahead of all the others. Depending on what you mean by Game of the Year, that might be allright or completely not what was the intention. To some extent that can be smoothed out by having three votes per person, weighted as 10 pts, 4 pts and 1 point.

    we should consider how many 2nd places are collected by one title only when we have a draw on the number of 1st places votes

    so.. game A get 1 first place

    game B get 3 second places

    game A win


    game A get 1 first and 1 second place

    game B get 1 first place and 1 third place

    game A win

    I like the idea of having 5 "votes" to disperse.  I could give 1 each to my top 5, give all 5 to my favorite, split up 3+ 1 + 1, etc.  I understand we don't have the functionality, but I think it would tell a much different story.

    I dont agree with multiple votes to the same title

    I know Albert spent some money on improved polls for the AA homebrew awards, in order to not disclose voting results along the way. Perhaps it is possible to order additional functionality like pick #1, #2, #3 if people pool up money for that? I regularly fill in online surveys with such functionality so it is not an unheard of concept.


    Or, since this year's voting was fully open, skip the voting form alltogether and have people post their top 3 lists in text form like the Kaz Kompo did both here on AA and on the Polish site. It takes more work from the host/moderator to tally up all the votes but gives more flexibility. If you want to be anonymous about your voting, you could even PM the voting host. The options are endless, depending on what one wants to achieve and the steps to get there.


    Edit: Or use something like Google Forms, Survey Monkey etc which are outside of the AtariAge realm but tailored for such functionality.

    can we link google forms to be visible here? otherwise it's like running the vote outside AA 

  4. I also like a lot aardvark but I have voted for my defender of the crown...

    as far as I know we can only choose 1 vote or open multiple vote, meaning not top 3 or similar...

    since there are so many titles every year, I also agree we can add the vote for best publisher

    That kind of voting might change the outcome by a lot. Over at the Atari 8-bit section, there recently were two different votes for best homebrew of 2019:


    Atari Homebrew Awards, run by ZeroPage Homebrew (81 votes). In this voting they had preselected the top 10 most popular games and people could choose 1 from those.


    Kaz Kompo, run by Adam and Kaz (87 votes). In this voting they had listed all 79 (!!) homebrews and hacks from 2019. Each participant picked their top 10, and the vote ran both on AtariAge and Atarionline.pl.


    In the Kaz Kompo vote, the winner was The Rescue Expedition by a landslide, more than 100 points ahead of any other entry. However in the Atari Homebrew awards, the same game only managed a shared 6th place in the voting! The other games in positions 2-5 however scored fairly equally in both votings. I have no reason to think either vote was rigged, just that one game might get a lot of "2nd best" votes which promotes it to first place, but when you can only pick 1 game, that other game might not get as many votes.

    I have discussed with ZeroPage about running the goty, but still devoted to AA 🙂

    That is some frolicsome antics the exclusion. 

    ghostbusters producer asked not to partecipate to goty, the reason is the acrimony towards his previous productions.. why is it so important to have ghostbusters listed?

    It is actually an Elektronite game that was developed in association with Kai Magazine. We had a design of a dungeon crawl and teamed up with Oscar Kenneth to do a Swords and Serpents type game. It isn't something that we are simply publishing. Most of the original design had some problems and was not complete in many ways. A lot of the original design was not used and it was greatly improved upon and enhanced by Oscar, and his talents really shine through in this game. One of our testers, despite these not being his type of game is a bit addicted to the game play. The game is complete and in final testing. It is simply a matter of doing the manual, overlays and box. 


    That is what happens in Swords and Serpents and one of the motivations for doing a game such as this. Valter Prette was pushing for this game and is the one that got the design that this game is loosely based on done. 


    the (non) final found in sword&serpents is the most important inspiration that lead me to discuss the basis for a maze game, and of corse I was since years awaiting for the chance to have a dragon as major character in some game... the work Kai is doing is exceeding my best whishes... this is a nosense for this platform.... but of corse you need to like knights and dragons!!

    From the descriptions of people who played it or tried to, it shouldn't even be in the running as it's more of a buggy demo than a solid game.


    I wonder if schill voting is happening to hype soon to be listed on ebay "rare" limited edition copies?


    Why invest in making a lot of copies of a  polished game with quality packaging if you can cobble together something like Gostbusters and sell them for $<500 a pop?

    I couldnt try quo vadis neither ghost so I have no opinion

    Well, joking aside, that’s the point. Potentially use this event to facilitate exposure to more games, and besides the recognition aspect, potentially boost sales? Anyway, just ideas. I’m glad a GOTY exists, don’t get me wrong. Was planning on voting for the first time.


    we can add a best publisher vote, since publisher propose several game in the same year.... but in general to add many categories is more and more difficult because people do not own all the games, maybe you buy only the one you like and vote for that and are not in the position to evaluate if the music in another release is worth the award

  10. Vote your favourite game!

    1 vote only, vote is public


    you have time until 15th February to make your evaluation


    1 Aardwark (Intvrevolution)

    2 Anthropomorfic force (Elektronite)

    6 Defender of the crown (Elektronite)

    7 Fubar (Intvrevolution)

    8 king of the mountains (Blue Sky Rangers)

    Jungle hunt (Collectorvision)

    10 League of light (Intvrevolution)

    14 Robot rubble (Intvrevolution)

    15 Spiker (Blue Sky Rangers)

    yes, Ghostbusters and the no-longer-so-secret CollectorVision release for the club should be included as well. Actually two great titles!

    Technically they were both released in 2019, no matter if they were shipped to a limited number of purchasers.

    ghostbuster developer do not want it to partecipate, I can add jungle hunt

    I may be wrong,but isn't Deep Zone up for game of the year this year as it reached everyone too late last year?

    Pretty sure it wasn't included last year.

    I think that's the only game released not on the list so far that has new content.

    Of course,if you guys decide to have a favorite re release category as well,that is fine too!
