Pandemic: Year 2 Edition
It has been a long and strenuous year, but hopefully, you and your loved ones have made it through as best as you could. It’s not easy living during a global pandemic, in fact, sometimes it’s downright terrifying. Thankfully though we have games and people to play with to get us through. You’ve already heard from the staff here at Destructoid about what we thought were the greatest games of the year, now it’s time for you the community to voice your opinion for the 2021 game of the year.
Similar to last year we’re going to be utilizing a preferential voting system so you can have three choices for game of the year! The way it will work is this: you’ll select your choice for game of the year, as well as a second and third choice. Each choice will then be given a point value based on their ranking: first place will get three points, second place two, and third place one. Finally, the votes will be tallied and a final standing will be selected.
Because it is a preferential voting system and that system can be gamed by a single game being picked multiple times on the same ballot, any ballot that has a single game picked on it multiple times will be thrown out. Also, a gentle reminder that the eligibility period runs from December 1, 2020, to November 30, 2021. Halo: Infinite, you have been saved…
There are 174 games to choose from for the 2021 Community Game of the Year award, which is a lot for a dropdown menu. To make things easier, you can peruse this list to make sure there aren’t any games that you forgot.
Voting will remain open until Noon CST, January 11, 2022, so make sure to get in there and make your voice heard!
