GOL GOTY Awards Are Over, Here's The Top 10 From Each Section

By - | Views: 14,352
Our first ever GOTY Awards are over, and we have the top 10 from the two sections ready for your viewing pleasure. This was a fun experiment we will do again next year.

You can now view the full GOTY page complete with leaderboards for each game. We had it up originally, but it was removed to prevent a voting bias for the top games based on feedback. This will remain open until a lot later in the year when we prepare the next one.

The winners are Borderlands 2, and 0 A.D., so massive congratulations to them both. They are both excellent games, and deserve being winners. We've sent both a tweet to let them know, with a nice image provided by community member sobkas.

Congratulations to all the games that didn't win, as you were great enough to be nominated that should mean something!

Open Source Winners

All Others
Own up, who voted for 7 Days to Die?

We will work on nicer images to import for the winner announcement next year.

Question Time
We don't want the 2015 awards to be rammed full of so many games we can't count them, so we wish to ask you how you think we should handle it?

Should we do as other sites do and only let editors nominate?
Should we limit nominations per-person?

What (apart from more categories!) do you feel we missed that's essential for next year? And what other more regular awards would you like to see us do? Article taken from

Glad to see Transistor up there. :)

Now as far as voting is concerned, I think it needs to be more relevant to the year. While I love Battle for Wesnoth and is my most actively played Open Source game, I don't regularly check out the updates, but this is afaik, not a game release of 2014, nor are many of the ones. Open source categories should be relevant to "what has improved most" or developed through activity. We all know many open source projects stagnate or die sometimes due to inactivity, so it would be more beneficial to readers to see what has been regularly updating or has been enjoyed through said updates of that year.

IMO of categories:

- Open source: Best development improvements of 2015
- Open source: Best new / anticipated project(s) of 2015 (this could even be a "What has been revived" through development activity)

- Commercial: Best / Most anticipated port(s) of 2015
- Commercial: Best DRM-free of 2015

- Editor's Choice award of 2015
