2011 Aggie Awards - Readers’ Choice poll

Aggie Awards Readers’ Choice
Aggie Awards Readers’ Choice

The 2011 Aggie Award nominees are in, but while the red carpet’s being rolled out and final envelopes are sealed with our own chosen winners, now’s the time for you to show which games you like; you really, really like! Yes, the Readers’ Choice poll returns once again, giving each game another chance to shine, this time in the popular vote rather than the opinion of snobb… I mean honest, thoughtful, passionate critics likes ourselves.

Below is a complete list of categories open for voting. Only one vote per category is allowed. To make your choice, simply select the appropriate game from the drop-down menu available for each question. If you wish to pass on certain categories, simply pick the "No answer" selection from the menu. There is one write-in vote for Best Character; if submitting an entry for that, please list both the name of the character you’re nominating and the game in which he/she/it/they appear.

This poll works solely on the honour system, so we haven’t taken any precautions to avoid ballot-stuffing (although your IP address will be logged after submitting a survey). We do ask, however, that you limit yourselves to only one entry. One ballot per person is how voting works best, and we trust that no one will abuse the system. In the same way, we ask that you vote only for games you feel are deserving of victory. This is all just for fun, but spoiling votes just ruins the fun for everyone. In the unlikely event of suspicious voting activity, we’ll deal with that at the time, but we’re confident that won’t be necessary.

Voting will end on Monday, February 13th, and winners will be unveiled in our final Aggie Awards presentation over the course of three days, beginning February 15th. It may not be your civic duty to vote this time, but a single ballot really can make a difference! Besides, if you don’t vote, you haven’t earned the right to gripe if your faves don’t come out on top.

Notes

No applicable games have been excluded from the voting list to ensure full impartiality. Only titles that are ineligible for a specific criterion (non-console exclusive, voice acting, etc.) have been omitted from those categories.

For the sake of administrative simplicity, Back to the Future, episodes 2 and 3 of Hector: Badge of Carnage, and Stacking (with expansion) have been listed as a single entity. Nominations can be based on individual episodes or the series in its entirety.

It was carried over to the 2011 [i]staff[/i] awards because none of us had played it last year. But it was really a 2010 release, and it was on the public poll last year.

Why isn't '999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors' here? :\ It was in the eligible games list...

Yes, I'm aware of that, I'm not questioning your choices for the awards. Just questioning MY choice!

"ERROR We are sorry but your session has expired." What a h...? How long is the session? I wasn't delaying or anything. I doubt I want to invest my time again after already doing it. :S

Stacking is set to release soon on PC, but it was a console exclusive in 2011, regardless of what comes after.

For the Best Console Exclusive, I had to go with Ghost Trick, mainly because Stacking is set to release on PC (or am I wrong?). Too bad for Gray Matter in the Traditional Adventure category : Gemini Rue came out of nowhere and took the cake! Talking of cakes, Portal 2 could've won in several categories, but I'm one of those rebels who refuse to think of it as an adventure game! On the other hand, I think L.A. Noire can be considered as such, and is my personal AG of the year.

When filling out the poll I had to leave several fields blank, simply because i couldn't remember how good the music etc. was in the different games :) So it got me thinking about which things you actually remember, and what is really the most important things about a good game. The things I remember very clearly are things like the Story, the Writing, the Characters, the Humor, the Voice Acting and the Gameplay. Wheras Graphics, Animation, Music and Sound effects, might play an important part in the overall experience of the game, but it is rarely something I remember. (I'm not suggesting these catagories should be removed)
