Well, we've had our fun. Over the last week we've all shared with you our thoughts, our high and low points of the last twelve months, and now it's time for some democracy in action. Over the next few days we'll be dishing out some genre awards and playing titles off against each other. There've been some fierce arguments in the Dealspwn office over some of these, and our own internal voting was often interrupted by desperate 999 calls after a few buts got a little too heated. Carl even lost an ear.
But that's what this period is all about: sounding off against your fellow man, hotly debating whether or not Prison Break really did suck more than Pure Football, championing your virtual investments and grinding your opponents' faces into the dust made by their games as you blow them up with your explosive opinions and nuclear rhetoric.
And now we want to know what YOU think!
As with last year, we've managed to amass a shortlist for each category and we've already determined our winners through a fair and dictatorial democratic process. we will of course be inviting you to do the same. And please don't hesitate to let us know why you voted. Get stuck in. If you agree with our results, let us know. If you don't , even more reason to let us know!
Here's a little list of what's happening and when:
- 11th January – Best Shooter | Best Strategy
- 12th January – Best Multiplayer | Best Marketplace
- 13th January – Best Music/Rhythm | Best Platform/Puzzle
- 14th January – Best RPG | Best Action-Adventure
- 15th January – Best Sports | Best Driving
- 16th January – Worst Game of the Year
- 17th January – Game of the Year 2010
It's on like Donkey Kong! I'm looking forward to seeing what happens.
