    Heh... For the sake of people without a lot of time, you don't need to make all your nominations in one go. As long as your max of three nominations for each award are up by the 17th you're good.

    Anyways, no Game of the Year, QQ?

    I realize now that there are a lot of games I haven't played/experienced this gen, but I tried my best to get down the most memorable:

    Best Graphics - Nintendogs, Trace Memory
    Best Music/Sound - Wild Arms Alter Code F
    Best Plot - N/A
    Best Game Play - Sonic Rush, We Love Katamari, Kirby Canvas Curse
    Best New Franchise - Nintendogs
    Most Anticipated Game - Pokemon Diamond & Pearl
    Most Innovative Game - Kirby Canvas Curse

    Best Puzzler - Puyo Pop Fever (DS), Meteos
    Best Shooter - N/A
    Best Racer - Mario Kart DS
    Best RPG - Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time, Pokemon Emerald, Dragon Quest VIII
    Best Adventure - N/A
    Best Fighter - N/A
    Best Action/Platformer - Sonic Rush,
    Best Sim - Nintendogs, Animal Crossing Wild World
    Best Strategy/Tactics - Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Advance Wars Dual Strike, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
    Best 'Other' title - Wario Ware Touched!, We Love Katamari

    Top game on Gameboy Advance - Pokemon Emerald
    Top game on DS - Animal Crossing Wild World, Mario Kart DS, Nintendogs

    Well, simulation is just that - simulation of life. It's entirely up to individuals whether that means real-life or artificial/wacky life.

    Animal Crossing, I would consider a simulation. Not simply because of the artificial reality of life but for the fact it's a simulation of a community.

    'Other' titles really should be anything that cannot - in any way - fall into another category (except other than puzzle at a stretch). Titles like Brain Training, Electroplankton, Pokemon Box, Ping Pals etc.

    Also, games based on real-life games that aren't considered a sport - such as Monopoly, Poker etc are generally considered 'other' too. Again, the DS has become a breeding ground for these.

    ... BAH! I forgot Sports, too x.x

    *Goes to edit that in*

    Alright... EVERYTHING should be included now. Except a PC category, but I want to know what you guys think about that. Should PC games be included in this as well? It'd definitely bring a lot more variety to certain categories.

    I know I haven't filled much in, and I know I don't actually own most of those games - but I have seen them anbd played on some of them. And I'll get round to the rest later. :p

    EDITED

  8. Oak...you do know that Mario 64 DS was released in 2004, right? :wink:
     
  9. Doctor Oak

    Staff Member Overlord

    You do know that the DS was only released here in 2005 and so was Mario 64.... right?

    This is WORLDWIDE - not just America.

    Also, why is everyone voting for 'Most Anticipated' wrong?

    You can't be sitting in anticipation for a game already released.

    No, but you can read it as the games you anticipated the most for/throughout the year. Not that hard to understand when these are 2005 awards :p

    I guess it should've been labeled "Most Anticipated for 2006" which can be altered, as long as everyone edits their results.

  13. I thought "Most Anticipated" meant the game from 2005 we anticipated the most. Way to be clear. :wink:

    Rules updated. Games no longer need to be seconded to be included. It would've ended up being too much hassle.

    Yaarr! Last day for nominations. If you have last minute edits/posts to make, do so.

    I guess we'll just have to deal with the few nominations. Thanks to the ones who did post, and to anyone who's supported Charms in the past for competitions/contests like this. It means a lot, to all of us I'm sure :)

    Edit: If we do not get at least one more Top PS2 game nomination or Top X-Box game nomination from someone other than me or Alex respectively, both categories will be taken out of this. Voting on a single title is pointless. And X-Box 360's category is basically dead where it stands.

    Should've faced facts from the beginning, but I did what I could.

    Since we've become busy with other projects recently, the Video Game awards were put on the back burner. I think it's about time I canned it for good, which pretty much means the prize giveaway has been cancelled too.

    But fear not. Pokecharms day is just around the corner, and you all know what that means ^^

    Thanks again to people who voted! I think we can tell pretty well from all of our nominations which games we think were the best.

    And that my friends is that ;)
