End of Year 2019: Vote For Your Favorites!


Now that 2019 is behind us and our discussions threads have had a chance to breathe, it’s time for our End of Year event to enter the nomination phase to determine our community’s consensus favorites.

You can find the nomination form here: https://forms.gle/7T9zx2hamqBvZdjK7
(This form requires that you are signed into a Google account to prevent duplicate submissions, but your email address will not be collected.)

A few details about the nomination process:

  • Please nominate up to three games (or characters) for each category. If you can’t come up with three (or any) nominees for a category, it’s okay to leave fields blank.
  • Your nominees don’t need to be ordered - each game/character you nominate will get a single vote toward being included in the final poll, regardless of the order you write your nominations in.
  • All games that you nominate must have released or entered early access between December 11th, 2018 and December 31st, 2019 (inclusive). The one exception to this is the Favorite Ongoing Game category.
  • You can nominate the same game for multiple categories if you wish.
  • Make sure to fill out the form all the way to the end to ensure that your nominees are recorded.
  • You can edit your nominees as much as you like until the nomination period ends, by re-opening the form while signed into the same Google account you used originally.

Here are the list of categories that will be voted on this year:

  • Favorite Game
  • Favorite Atmosphere/Presentation
  • Favorite Character
  • Favorite Game Feel
  • Favorite Ongoing Game
  • Favorite Multiplayer
  • Favorite Music
  • Favorite Narrative

Nominations will close on January 13th at 6pm EST - make sure to get your submissions in by then. The top 5 nominees in each category (including ties; top 10 for Favorite Game) will make it to the final round of voting. The final polls will be posted in this thread on January 14th.

If you’d like to refer back to the discussion threads when making your selections, you can find links to all of those threads here: The Waypoint Community's End of the Year 2019

Happy voting!
