TSA’s annual Game of the Year celebrations are about to kick off, but before we start revealing our winners in each GotY category tomorrow, which the editorial staff and regular contributors have been voting for, we though we’d get in early and give you a chance to start voting. After all, community involvement is a huge part of TSA.
As with last year, the categories are same as the ones we’ve been using for the staff vote, and we’ve tried as hard as we can to include all of the games that made a mark on TSA this year, sometimes awkwardly fitting them into categories that you may disagree with, but ones which must exist for the presentation of the feature to work.
There are ten categories in total, ranging from Sports to Action Adventure epics and everything in between, with around 100 games to choose from in the final overall Game of the Year vote.
You may notice some omissions, such as handheld. That’s because we feel that handheld games have advanced enough to be considered aside the home console games, and to prevent duplication of titles as we had last year. That means we’ve stuck to one category – the defining genre(s), usually – for each game, rather than having multiples across categories. This should make the voting system fairer.
We’ve still got a separate Mobile category, so that those smaller games don’t feel oddly juxtaposed with epic titles such as The Last of Us, and we’ve added in one dedicated to Independent Developers, so those games get their time to shine and don’t get lost alongside titles which are usually much more expensive.
So, go ahead and use the form below to vote, and we’ll have a round-up of your results on New Year’s Eve. If you think we’ve missed anything, then we can only apologise, but we have tried to fairly represent every game worth consideration. We hope you enjoy joining in on the celebrations!
Update: Voting has now closed. Results will be posted soon!
