Intellivision GOTY 2021 (category discussion)

Recommended Posts

Just about 3 months left of 21, time sure is flying. ūüėú

 

There had been digital releases and likely more. (Before they make it into CIB)

 

What say the masses on having two categories to vote on?

 

1. Physical CIB

2. Digital

 

 

Maybe more?

3. Best artwork (box cover)

4. Best music

5????

 

Look at what ZeroPage Homebrew is doing with Atari.

I’m all for more categories.

I think it’s pretty cool what happens on the Atari side.

Maybe we could take a step in that direction, without over-engineering too much.

They even had a live video streaming of the awards show.  Cannot wait to see you folks on the red carpet.

 

Were there many digital only released games?  Super Pro Gammon, Norsemen ...

I would definitely do two separate polls for physical and digital releases.

As a collector I would also like to give a vote for the best packaging as well.

Just to be clear, the nudes Rev usually tosses in my packages won't influence my vote.

Most specific tacos

I thought that tacos was an Atari thing, and Intellivision people were more into bacon?

Revision approved.  Oops, I thought H.E.L.I., Intellivania and Antarctic Tales were 2020 because I ordered them around same time as Rick Dynamite.  Definitely games that need recognition.

Multiple sections for new digital games vs ones in the CIB (heli and AT) or ones already released in CIB (jr pac man). Not sure, this is uncharted territory in Intv voting.

Could be a good idea to add links to the location people can purchase CIB's or Links to Digital DL's

Had today off and had time to play a few bout's of SP Boxing and Jr Pac Man.   

 

Darn, should have played some H.E.L.I.  Friday... I guess.

 

Should SP BnJ be on the list? How about

If folks would be up for a 3rd category, maybe what could be "Best WIP".

This could be a way to build visibility and anticipation about upcoming titles, and hopefully encourage their completion and release.

 

Sample entries:

(If most of those look unfamiliar... that is exactly why this category matters ūüôā

 

- Sasuke vs Commander

- Robot Army 

- Rags to Riches

- Fast Food

- Keystone Kapers

- Pitfall II

- Wing War

- Asphalt

- Akalabeth

- Ghostbusters+

- Infiltrator

- The Pandora Incident

 

Anyway, just an idea.

Best WIP for me sounds like one of those "give every kid a ribbon for showing up" prizes.  *shrug*

I know Little Man Computer was free, but it should definitely make the list as a Digital release.  Maybe have a category for Technical Honorable Mentions, since it's a Tutorvision title.

WIPs that supposedly already have publishing deals probably are not much to vote for, though I have noticed that the Atari people have such categories. Perhaps they need more motivation to get things done? Also I believe in order to vote for WIP, there needs to be a playable demo, not just a YouTube video or screenshots.

 

However if there is a show / streaming planned together with presenting the winner(s) of the GOTY, it might be useful if those WIPs that developers/publishers want to bring attention to could contribute them for exposure.

It is just one more category with one more winner. I don’t see how everyone is getting a ribbon. Anyway, the point of this category would not be the prize, but the visibility and encouragement.

Shouldn't this be Antarctic Tales Enhanced Edition?

Look at the work Zero Page Homebrew puts into the yearly awards. 


Why not something like this.   See the link also in my first post.

Yeah, but look at how many games were completed and in progress for the 2600 this year! It makes sense for that group.

 

A WIP award seems unnecessary to me, but there needs to be a downloadable, playable ROM to evaluate if there's going to be a winner declared in that category.

Considering how much can change between a WIP and when a game is finally released, I would be fine with skipping the WIP category.  Things would get more complicated for games that take more than 1 year to be completed (could a game compete in the WIP category in multiple years, what about just the losing games be allowed to compete in multiple years).

 

I appreciate the sentiment of adding the category (heart is in the right place), though.
