View Full Version : FinHeaven Video Game Awards - Nominations ***UPDATE***

Alright guys, time to select the nominees for game awards on our First FinHeaven Video Games Award show. Here's how it'll work:

Give nominees for all of the categories you feel good about nominating a game for. If you don't have a nomination, leave it blank. It does the system no good if you nominate a game simply because a friend or a magazine says it's awesome.

I have a spreadsheet put together to track all of the numbers. I will come into this thread and tally all of the nominations. We will have 4 nominees for each category. The big categories will have 6 - 8 nominees. Make only 1 nomination per category. Don't change your nomination because someone else already picked it. On multiplatform categories (like Best Action Game), please give the system the game is on with the title. It is ok to nominate the same game for multiple awards (although, try and hold back from putting the same game throughout the whole list :wink: ). Please only nominate games from 2005 until now - Make sure the game is out. We don't nominate based on speculation.

NOTE -- Please only nominate games released in the United States (for example, I can't nominate FInal Fantasy 12 even though I have it and have finished it :D )

NOTE -- I want to explain the "Best Graphics" category. It's based on the hardware's capabilities because obviously a 360 is a more powerful machine than a PS2. Does that mean that Shadow of the Colosuss is an ugly game? HELL NO! A PS2 game can beat a 360 game in this competition because it's based on the total graphics package of the game, not the console it's on.

Please try and limit this thread to nominations only. It makes it easier for me to tally the numbers if there isn't random game talks going on :D

Invite all the FH gamers you know to participate. The more people that do this, the better it'll be. Let's have fun with this, I'll post first so everyone can see the format:

Mor, I wanted to put Metroid Prime 2 for best FPS, but it came out in Nov. '04, and I didn't think it would be allowed. If you do allow it, please disregard Metroid Prime : Hunters.

Ok people, the nominations seem to be set. There isn't as much as I hoped, but the turnout between this thread and PMs were enough to get us going.

1. If there was a game that was nominated more than once, it will automatically be in the running before a game that was nominated once. Example - RE4 was nominated for Best Adventure game. But Indigo Prophecies was nominated 3 times. Even though RE4 was more critically acclaimed and sold more, more people gave enough a crap about Indigo to nominate it. So for Adventure games, Indigo is in, and RE4 is out.

I ran into a lot of these. If the game you wanted in isn't there, I'm sorry. If it was a flat tie, I went with IGN and Gamespot's COMBINED review score. The polls are final, changing stuff won't fix anything.

2. If there was only 1 game nominated for any given award... it wins.

3. This is just for fun people. Let's keep it fun, clean, and without the big biases.
