I must say, I download more games than I ever used to. I guess it's because they're shoved in your face when you visit the homepage. So i grab a few new ones instead of going straight to the forums.

If you're game is worthy of being... spotlighted then it would appear in the Daily Spotlight! Crazy concept....

Lol, to be honest, there are just too many good games out there. I really don't have the time to play all of them and recommending just one of those games means that I'm unrecommending everything else.

The thing you're forgetting is it's game of the week

Clearly whichever won was the game of the week, if you felt like you should've won, you should've released it at a different time.

I agree with Adam about front paging seeming special before, back in the day I would look in awe at those who got posted - because they had been deemed worthy. The GoTW has never held that much significance to me since it really is luck of the draw (Except for the ones I won, those were earned baby )

It's nice to see more games getting recognised with the admin recommendation stars, we could push it further with GoTYear awards as previously suggested still.

Gee, i didn't know i'd stir up a big controversy. I just wanted to let people know that there was more then 1 good game a week. I guess that's what the spotlight thing has kinda fixed anyways. My bad.

These are very excellent examples by other people and are very informative.

Yeah, but you dont know if someone is going to submit a better game then you unless you can see the future.

With this new system, could they not also add a bronze and silver trophy. You get a silver trophy on your profile for second place and bronze for third, and if you ever get a better rank, it replaces the lower trophy. But nothing for honourable mention.

Also, Jonny didn't get his trophy yet.

Everyone agrees that a game like FIG deserves a Game of the Week, or at least some award of equal value. But if it's released the same week as something like Tormishire or The Underground then it's screwed. Imagine if the next week the only people to upload anything are people who participated in a 5 minute Pong clone competition. How is it fair that a crappy Pong clone gets a Gotw while FIG doesn't?

Gotw seems like a really great award, but it really depends on what other games were released that week. This is why the Voting system is better. Seems like Gotw awards should just go to games that got 4 stars or above in their first week or something like that?

On the other hand, we could just leave it as it is and you have to hope for the best when uploading your game!

H'bout we give a special award to those games that were good, but didn't beat the uber-release? A little Shiny star ribbon thingie. We could have separate GOTW polls. Instead of having second and third place determined by the GOTW poll, have a separate poll for peoples' second favorite. I thought at first that this could be a little confusing, but the longer I think about it, the more it makes sense. O_o

It was always a controversial topic, lol. It's just that everyone who used to argue about it is no longer here

There are some good points to this thread. I personally think an ideal would be to put the last few weeks of games (2-4 weeks) up for GOTW, that way if there are two very good games that incidentally come out the same week, one of them doesn't get the shaft.

The basis of this is the workability of professional game rating and the Game of the Year system. If mags like PC Gamer and sites like Gamespot called the Game of the Year in January, the great ones that come out in the summer or fall wouldn't get recognition. I'm not saying we should do a GOTY, but a GOTW with the last few weeks of games would be a good idea.

That's my 2 cents, anyway.

I like the sound of 1st, 2nd and 3rd places too, but only if there are more than 3 games in the poll .
