Default 2011 TouchArcade game of the week (GOTW): Winners!

Note: 2012 Game of the Week Winners Thread is here:

OVERVIEW :
The purpose of this thread is to record the winners of the weekly TouchArcade Game of the Week (GOTW) polls, as voted by forum members. You can browse to the winners' thread pages, appstore links, front-page reviews, and also view the trailer video if you are interested to find out more about the games.

HALL OF FAME :





HISTORY :
The idea of Game of the Week came from Ap0calypse on 7th July 2011. The brilliant idea is embraced by Touch Arcade members and following some discussions on its thread, the first five nominees are selected. These games are King of Fighters, Magnetic Baby, Ninjammin, Sword and Soldiers, and Deathsmiles. A public poll was made and finally Swords and Soldiers (Chillingo Ltd., Two Tribes, Ronimo) was declared as the first Touch Arcade's Members Game of The Week.

Considering its potential, Touch Arcade very own Superman helped to organize and initially introduced the term GOTW for the weekly winners. This is his quote on the rule of GOTW on 13th July 2011:
"So we're going to have this GOTW every week. The week starts on friday and ends on thursday. So any game which shows up in US store before Thursday midnight is eligible for the week. But thats just a general idea. In case something cool gets released on thursday (or even earlier) but got overlooked by forum members, it can still be nominated in the next week. The main motive of this GOTW is to have an easy way to find the best games of the week for those who dont follow the forums 24x7. A new thread will be posted every wednesday with a list of all notable games released that week along with the NZ releases of that day. The list will be updated until thursday night. Forum members will then vote for the game/s they'd like to be included in the poll. Since the forum limits poll options to 10, we'll choose the 10 most nominated games and poll will go live on friday. You'll have until tuesday to vote for the GOTW."

With a new ground rules set, GOTW embraces 10 nominees and the poll shows a significant rise of popularity with a total of 97 votes compared to 37 votes on the first poll. The poll continues to run until now. The winning games are sometimes also the AppStore Game of The Week and they usually are mentioned in Touch Arcade Monthly Best Game List with high rating, which indicates the quality of the games themselves.

I'mNoSuperman continued to make the weekly polls until the week of 11th August 2011. After that, the weekly polls are organized by Triggywiggy until the week of 8th September 2011. Then Arta takes over the role of GOTW organizer on the following week until now. He's taking a break for a month, starting with the week of 21st December 2011 and currently Echoseven helps to organize the thread during his absence. Since I think it is difficult to track the GOTW winners from a huge amount of threads, I create this TAGOTW Winners List with the help of moderator Red1 as a reference for all Touch Arcade Members.

Most voted game among GOTW winners is currently JUNK JACK which got 55 votes (39.07% of the total votes). The week Junk Jack, 9th November 2011, is the most voted week so far with 153 votes. In contrary, the least voted week is the week of 5th October 2011, which only got 24 votes.

Seven games among TAGOTW are selected as the candidates for Touch Arcader's Pick for Game of the Year 2011 (thread) which are Anomaly Warzone Earth, Jetpack Joyride, Mage Gauntlet, Junk Jack, Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, Infinity Blade II, and Grand Theft Auto 3. The poll is still on and apparently two of these games are on the lead. Will they win?


RECENT WINNERS :

1st Runner Up - ZENONIA 4 iPhone thread link video
2nd Runner Up - TERRA NOCTIS Universal Thread link video


PARTICIPATE IN THE POLL :
As a Touch arcade Member, it will be great if all of you can participate in the poll to make the result is more credible. You can go to the weekly poll thread and offer some nominees as well as vote for the GOTW when the nominees are announced.
Basic rules for Game of The Week Voting Poll :
a. Up to five nominees suggestion per member each week.
b. One vote per member each week.
c. Developers can't vote for their own game.
d. New users enrolling to vote will not be counted.
e. Poll will be public, for transparency.

Default TouchArcade game of the week (GOTW): Winners!

EXTRAS :

Are you curious what will be Touch arcade GOTW for the previous months of 2011 (January-June)?
If you do, then you can continue on reading this section.
Note: This section is just an assumption based on old Touch Arcade threads.

Although there are no GOTW threads before July 2011, apparently there are threads for Game of The Month between January-April 2011 (January,February,March,April). There are also Touch Arcade's list of Best Monthly Games (January, February/March, April, May/June).

If we trace each of the nominated / best games on these threads based on their respective release dates and also check out each games' threads for their popularity (based on replies) along with AppStore's choices of Game of The Week, we can assume the weekly winners of GOTW for January-June 2011.

And here they are :

30/06/11 STREET FIGHTER IV VOLT Universal thread
23/06/11 SONIC & SEGA ALL-STARS RACING Universal thread
16/06/11 FLICK GOLF EXTREME! iPhone thread iPad thread

02/06/11 FEED ME OIL iPhone thread iPad thread
26/05/11 TOWER DEFENSE: LOST EARTH iPhone thread HDUniv thread
19/05/11 BUMPY ROAD Universal thread
12/05/11 ARMY OF DARKNESS DEFENSE iPhone thread iPad thread

Gotta say, the winners and runner ups so far have been some pretty damn good choices. Pretty cool seeing all of the winners in one place. Thanks.
