With some big games, a few disappointing games, and many surprising games, after a slow start and a few stumbles here and there, 2015 has really picked up since the turn of the autumnand here at Midlife Gamer we want you to decide, as a community, which games truly shone as the gems of 2015.
We will tell you the categories, but there will be no lists of pre-selected games other than those you yourself put forward. That’s right, none of this shortlist malarkey favoured by so many, you will choose who wins directly.
So, how does it work?
Well we are going high tech this year and are using a combination of chewing gum, science and black magic. We have combined all three of these elements into a nice and neat URL for you to click on:
Only fully released titles qualify, and as such any Alpha/Beta code you may have selected will go in the honourable mention list along with those titles that don’t quite break into the top five.
The qualifying release date window for nominations will be 1st December 2014 – 31st December 2015 – This means our community awards will cover the full year, just like you the community wanted. We are also including December of last year as it didn’t feature in last years vote (the cut off was the 30th November) and there might be a few of you that want to vote on Ubisofts online multiplayer masterpiece – The Crew.
Once the votes have been cast, we will assemble the staff to count the tally to see the ultimate winner. Each position between first and fifth will be allotted a point score as follows: 10 points for first, five points for second, three points for third, two points for fourth and one point for fifth place.
Once you see the nomination form you will see that we have stripped the awards down to 14 plus the game of the year vote meaning a more streamline awards that mean something to our community.
Voting closes at 23:59 on the 31st December 2015 and is open to all.
****STOP PRESS**** Not only will you be helping to decide on which games win awards in this years Community Awards but every person that votes will gain an entry into a draw to win one promotional copy of the following games:
Star Wars Battlefront on Xbox One – one copy up for grabs
God of War on PlayStation 4 – two copies to give away
Until Dawn on PlayStation 4 – three copies to give away
So, time to get your thinking caps on, and submit your nominations. Happy voting!!
