Default GOTY 2010 Questions

December 30th, 2010, 21:22
We are preparing the list of games again for the RPGWatch Game of the Year Awards 2010 and are having the same discussions as last year.
The thing we are struggeling with is when to add a game to the list or not. Take for example Drakensang: The river of time. It has been released in 2010 in parts of Europe but not in the US.

So, the question is when is a game considered to be released and eligible for listing in the GOTY competition?

Would that be a release somewhere? An English release somewhere? An English release in the US? An English release in Europe? A combination? Or anything else?

For completeness I also give you the list from our database. As you can see the Drakensang games are on this list as they are released somewhere, but it's very debatable whether they should be part of the competition.

  • Alpha Protocol
  • Arcania: Gothic 4
  • Deathspank
  • Din's Curse
  • Disciples 3: Renaissance
  • Divinity II: Ego Draconis / FoV / DKS
  • Dragon Age: Awakening
  • Drakensang: The River of Time
  • Drakensang: The River of Time - Phileasson's Secret
  • Elemental: War of Magic
  • Eschalon: Book II
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes
  • King's Bounty: Crossworlds
  • Mass Effect 2
  • S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
  • Starpoint Gemini
  • Swords and Sorcery: Underworld
  • Ultima VI Project: The False Prophet

You can also give your comments on games we have missed or games that should not be in the list.
