Not another vote!! Grooooooaaaann….
Yeah, between Brexit and Scotland and Hillary-Trump, we know everyone is feeling pretty polled out right now. But while all those were merely deciding the fate of the free world, there’s one last vote of the utmost importance to decide: the Readers’ Choice Aggie Awards!
You’ve seen our final nominees by now, and have already concluded that we’re completely off our rockers or geniuses ahead of our time (or some combination of both). So now it’s time to have your say.
There’s no electoral college overruling the majority at Adventure Gamers, so in a poll like this, believe us when we say that every vote counts! Some categories in the past have literally been decided by one or two votes, along with others being nosed out for runner-up recognition. YOURS could be that vote this year! So cast your ballot, or forego your civic right to complain.
If you’re wondering why Game X isn’t on the list, it’s either a remake, a port, an unfinished episodic series, or an adventure-ish game that’s more “ish” than adventure (namely, too few puzzles, or too much action to qualify). It just wouldn’t be fair to the 115 – count ‘em, a hundred and fifteen!! – games that ARE eligible to include all the ones that don’t meet our minimum (and really quite relaxed) genre standards.
As always, only one vote per category is allowed. To make your choice, simply select the appropriate game from the drop-down list available for each award. If you wish to pass on certain categories, simply pick the "N/A No answer" selection from the menu. There are two write-in votes for Best Character and Best Concept; if submitting an entry for these, please write the name of the character and/or brief description of the concept you’re nominating and the game in which each appears.
No ballot-stuffing permitted, as one submission per person is how voting works best. (No rampant voter fraud here!) We also ask that you vote only for games you feel are deserving of victory. Nominating your favourite game for everything just skews the balance unfairly, and leads to predictably boring results. So while this is all just for fun, remember that spoiling votes ruins the fun for everyone. “No answer” is a valid answer!
And so, without further ado, let the polling begin! Voting will end on Monday, February 20th, and winners will be unveiled in our final Aggie Awards presentation over the course of three days, beginning February 22nd.
