Default TA Forum's Pick for 2012 Game of the Year! *** LAST CHANCE TO VOTE ***

The nomination period will begin in mid-December. Start compiling your lists and making decisions about your 10 favorite games from the past year, however DO NOT post them until the nomination period or they will not count.

For more information please refer back to the previous year's poll:
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=112564

ALL games from 2012 are available for nomination, but if you want some inspiration, here is an incredibly helpful post by Echoseven:
http://forums.toucharcade.com/showpo...5&postcount=34

This post will be updated with instructions as the time comes closer.

UPDATE 12/6/12: The nomination period will begin on December 20th, after the last release night of 2012, and will run until January 3rd, after the first release night of 2013.


UPDATE 12/20/12: I am now accepting nominations for your top 10 games of the year! Your list does not have to be in any specific order. If more then ten are posted, I will only count the first ten games. Please do not edit your post after you have chosen your nominations. Also, for the time being, please do not post anything but nominations in this thread until the 3rd.

UPDATE 1/3/13: The poll is now up. Please vote! The poll closes on 10 Jan 2013.

-Final nomination list at the end of the thread-

Games that could have make it, but ultimately arent GOTY material for one reason or another:
Inferno+, Waking Mars, Outwitters, Bad Piggies, Bitless, PlicPlic, Mini Dash, Angry Birds Star Wars, Pudding Monsters, Minigore 2: Zombies, Monster Flip, About Love, Hate and the Other Ones. All of them have very good quality and all have rating of 4 or 4.5 out of 5 stars
