Coint & Plick VOTING thread - best games of 2020 (also campaign here) DEADLINE: MARCH 13

HELLO. AND WELCOME TO VOTING FOR VIDEO GAMES. It is time to start voting for the best games of 2020!

You get 100 points -- spend them wisely. Pick as many games as you can and give them as few as 1 or as many as 30 points for the nominations! (or something you write in because you forgot to nominate it).

Use this handy ballot helper to put together your picks. Then copy-paste the TEXT from the right column into an e-mail to ps2ilx at When you make a google sheets copy and share it, there's often permission problems, and I uninstalled Excel this year, so... this is really the best option!

I've added a couple of categories this year! One for the best video game content creators -- videos, essays, streamers, podcasts, fanfic, fanart, tweets, cosplay, tv shows, whatever! You can use your imagination.

Also I'm announcing a little change to "console of the year" -- we're going to change it to PLATFORM of the year, which makes it slightly different -- for closed consoles (switch, ps4, etc) it's the same but for PC and Mac, think more like -- are you voting for Steam? Gamepass? GOG? Epic?

"Not from 2020 game of the year" is still there. I also added "I Love Games Post/Thread of the Year" which will not be ranked but will give me some fun stuff to pepper in as we go, feel free to acknowledge funny or enlightening or otherwise great posts from last year! Vote in as many side polls as you heart desires.

Did I miss anything? Probably. I hope not! Thanks, vote, bye!

Appreciate the form, as always I will wait until the last second to submit ballot

I think I will vote in this, but I've not got much campaigning in me. I am in the middle of playing Kentucky Route Zero as I saw it was eligible this year and have wanted to try it for ages - very cool so far.

Currently playing Control and loving it, lol

I'm excited to about the auxiliary poll for content creators!

This blog post made me buy A Monster's Expedition and nominate it. I still haven't gotten very far in the game yet.

hi, questions:

do we have to use all 100 points?

are we supposed to write blurbs/comments/mini reviews about our selections when we send the ballots?

you do not have to use all 100 points! and no need for blurbs -- you can post em during the rollout :)

I have my ballot started, just need to allocate the points!

Just sent mine. I really thought I'd played more 2020 games, but it turns out I was just playing a lot of 2019 games during 2020. I wish I'd voted in the 2019 poll - what a year that was! Baba is You, Dicey Dungeons, Disco Elysium, Dragon Quest 11, Dragon Quest Builders 2 (which in any normal year I would've given max 30 points, but not in 2019, when it would squeeze out everything else), Yakuza Judgment, Control, Luigi's Mansion, Pokemon, Link's Awakening remake, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Untitled Goose Game...

I don't even know if I could choose among them for my 'non-2020 goty' vote. I think Judgment, Disco Elysium, Control, and Marvel Ultimate Alliance were all ones I played in 2020 rather than 2019. Gun to my head it's Disco Elysium, but with a pang of guilt for shunning Judgment.
