Triple posting for the second time in (almost) one page, look at the rebel.  You've still got more a week to send your Phase 1 votes/comments, though!


Stage 2: The Satoru Iwata Award for the Very Best Wii U Game as Voted for by the GNamer Forum That You've Actually Played
Ten Votes Each
Voting from now to 00:00 15th December

After Stage 1 finishes up, there'll barely be a chance to catch your breath as I ape Zero's first-birthday thread for a week.  Any (non-VC non-Wii) Wii U game is fair game here, retail or digital.  We'll be doing a countdown to the very greatest game on the Wii U, as chosen by you.  Has Pikmin 3 kept its eye in, or have more recent games replaced it?  Here's where we find out.

One set of ten votes (or fewer) here, with the first place getting 10, etc. etc.  Slightly longer voting period for this, you'll notice, again to avoid overwhelming - you can send me two separate voting slips for the two stages.  I'd almost encourage that.

Similarly to Stage 1, we're looking at games out on Wii U in PAL territories on or before 30th November.  For, y'know, consistency and that.  So Mario Tennis is in, but XCX just misses out.

Why there's no retail-only vote:
 


Please feel free to give honourable and dishonourable mentions too, which will get their own separate section, to all the Wii U-related stuff that doesn't quite fit into any of the votes.

Voting Template (if you want to use it)

I'm pleased it's not retail only as shouldn't matter if the game is retail or eShop, just if there good games.

When's the forum award votes then?

This is a really really dumb question, and could probably be answered simply by however I'd send my PM, but: In those templates, are the numbers 5 to 1 referring to the number of points (in which case the best game is at the top) or the position (in which case the best game is at the bottom)?

I almost hate myself for even asking this.

In the templates it's in ranking order, so 1 would get the most points. Smile

I had a Top 30 which was games that I would sort of give a 7 or above which I've got down to 16 quite easily, I've got rid of one of those 16 which might be one the best uses if the gamepad but is missing that sort of oomph in a overall package.

I've got my number 1 but the other 9 places, I've got no idea what order to put them & what of those 14 games that isn't my number 1 as I can make arguments for them all like this is the best 2D platfomer etc.

I need that sort thing that Andy linked to in your actual top what ever thread.

Still chewing over my votes. Three categories to go... and then the comments, too. I'm up for voting - but my schedule might have other ideas. Duh!

I've got another vote in for Stage 1, so it's time for a question. Somebody's put Bayo 1 down in the eShop vote, on the grounds that the retail edition was a special edition that came with the sequel. I wouldn't have thought of it like that, given that the retail version was the ubiquitous one, but I'm happy either way, especially because it's only one person so far. But do the rest of you have opinions?

Awright, voting and violating my original statement.  

Spoiler:
 

Omitted anything that doesn't apply, like worst game which would just be my top three in reverse since I haven't played any bad games on the system (nor do I play games that would be considered "bad" much to begin with lol).

DoPo

As I've spent this afternoon gettign down to a Top 10, it took a while but I used a chart putting each game against each other and repeat selecting which one I would sooner play.

I may have the strangest Top 10 as some massive Wii U games are missing, which Balla knows.

Well done to Mas for getting all his votes in swiftly!  Must admit, I was surprised when Frenchy Bird took his top spot...

Just a clarification about Honourables and Dishonourables: while you can feel free to mention specific games, I'll also include anything else relevant to the Wii U.  The machine, the controller, the stylus, the people, the companies, the sales, the characters and worlds (for dishonourables)...  

Cheers to Athrun too!  Are public votes the new private votes???? I have six sets of general votes so far, and two for the Iwata Award.

Fine either way - I have taken it to be a retail game and excluded it from my eShop vote (which is now in, fact fans, along with some squirrely and weird comments). Thumbs Up!

...Jas, you can't vote for Shovel Knight five times in every category. Naughty (I've not actually looked at Jas' votes yet, to be clear!)

Thanks Jas! Reminder that this weekend is your last chance to vote for Stage 1. Smile

That's the worst worst games list I've ever seen as two of those games are excellent and the first choice even though not great but if you were to rank every Wii U game you wouldn't put in at 200 odd place it be down in the 70's.

Rayman got a negative vote, yet according to our own site it's a classic.

That was (Wonderful One Oh) one of mine, I'm afraid.  Lovely presentation, slightly head-warping but not terribly problematic controls... but the mission length had me begging for the end (of the mission/the sweet release of death: delete as appropriate) by halfway through, and the "characters" made me want to pull off my own head.  Add in the dubious camera and the disappointment factor for what was going to be The Wii U's Niche Quirky Saviour in its miserable first year, and you have a game I have very bad memories of.
