Best of Casual Gameplay 2011
Voting is now closed. Results are up! >>
And the sun didst set upon another year. But whilst we travel bravely into 2012, blinking uncertainly but hopefully into that great blinding light that is the future, let us not forget... 2011 frickin' rocked, dude! That's right, dearly beloved, it's that time again... for you fine folks to vote for your favourite games that we covered during ye olde 2011.
We've toiled for days (literally. literal toilage) to compile lists of all the games on the site that were not only the highest rated by you, our cherished readers, but also those we personally felt deserved mention. And let me tell you, there were a lot of games that were deserving; we saw a lot of new talent create amazing and memorable titles, as well as favourite familiar creators grace us with more of their high-quality work.
But now we need your help. (Imagine me projected from R2-D2 as I say this. I'm going to be imagining it.)
Starting today, you'll be able to vote for your favourite games in each category from browser to casual downloads, and indie games to mobile titles, once per day. Voting runs from January 11th through January 25th, and at the end, the titles you love the most will reign supreme and be showered with love, adoration, ponies, and chimichangas.
And this year we have added something new: voting for a single game to earn the coveted and prestigious title of Game of the Year! That's one single game across all 32 categories of games that we covered in 2011. You will be given the opportunity to cast your vote in any of the categories for the one and only, Game of the Year. Just check the box at the top of the page above all nominations. It will look like the example below:
Is there a game you feel personally deserves to be recognised as the very best of all from 2011? Then start voting and spread the word!
2011 was a fantastic year for creativity, with more developers than ever before making games that pushed the boundaries of their chosen genre, and some that seemed to defy neat classification altogether. To that end, trying to decide in what category to put some of these games was a bit of a nightmare, and one that was only resolved with a lot of thought, debate, and no-holds-barred cage fighting. If you find a game you believe is a different genre than the one we've placed it under, please remember that we tried our best to place them as accurately as we could, and also we love you very much.
It's obvious that the developers of these great games are the heart of the site, without whom we wouldn't have jobs, but if that's true then you, dear reader, are the very soul of it. Because you keep coming back to us each day, sending us your feedback and the games you find, and creating such an amazing, good-smelling community of clever, helpful people, this is a place we're proud to be a part of. Thank you for your time, your affection, and here's to many more years to come!
