Oi oi! Welcome to the GRcade Game of the Year Awards 2011 voting thread!
Please take a few moments to read through the rules before submitting your votes.
1. Please copy and paste the Voting Form (found below) and enter your votes next to each award category. You can either submit your votes publicly in this thread, or you can send them privately to me via PM if you prefer.
2. You are permitted one vote in each award category. If you provide more than one vote in any category, only the first choice listed will count.
3. Vote for games released during 2011. Wikipedia has a few pages dedicated to 2011 in gaming, which may be of some use to those of you with bad memories: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:2011_video_games
4. Feel free to vote for imported games released during 2011 in the US or Japan.
5. There are quite a few award categories, but it is not required of you to cast a vote in all of them. Vote in as many categories as you wish.
6. If you want to provide reasons for your choices, please go ahead. This is entirely optional, but it can make for more interesting reading, and I'll be including as many as I can when the awards take place
7. Voting ends on the Sunday 8th of January 2012. You can go back and edit your votes at any stage prior to this deadline, but as of the end of the 8th of January your votes are final. The votes will be counted and the results will be posted a few days after the voting has ended. We’ll be having a special live awards show, whereby I shall announce the winners.
