Some said it wouldn't happen, more said it shouldn't happen, but we're here again to prove them wrong - welcome to the nominations thread for the second annualÃ‚Â¹ (Type Thing)Ã¢â€žÂ¢ Game of the Year Awards! Don't know what it's all about? Check out last year's awards Remember, post your nomination for game of the year in a genre, with some kind of justification for its inclusion in that genre. Half-arsed justifications are, as always, appreciated, but fully arsed ones is what we're really after. We're only accepting nominations for games published between Jan 1st - Dec 31st 2002 (although you can pick which country ). Once the nominations are in, I'll make this thread a poll. Highlights expected from this year's awards include Ioo not taking a dump in my thread and the HoLers being a generally a bit less confused about it all than we were last year. There are a few more categories this year, to encourage nit-picking: Turn-based Strategy (type thing) RPG (type thing) Sports (type thing) Action Adventure (type thing) Simulation (type thing) Expansion Pack (type thing) Adventure (type thing) First Person Shooter (type thing) Squad-based Tactical (type thing) (some of my own noms will follow soon). Ã‚Â¹Woohoo, it just became annual.
