Paradise Presents: Potential 2007 Game of The Genre Nominations
Heh, it’s been a while since Paradise has done a special. Hell, it’s been a while since there has been a post (disregarding the recent posts by Zucas, of course. Not like I wouldn’t have done so anyways… :P) Well, I’m here to tell ya… we’re back!
So, now that we’ve gotten condolensces out of the way, here’s how this thing’s gonna work. We (Paradise members) are going to take the big game genres – FPS, TPS, puzzle, platformer, RPG, strategy- and argue over which games tower above the rest in each genre. Once we feel that we have the stand-outs for each genre, we’re going to argue some more about which one beats the others by the slimmest of margins. Once that is done, we will decide the game of the year; which game towers above the rest, period.
Sounds simple, right? Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as it sounds. Seeing as we’re only half-way through the year, there’s still a lot of time for potential contenders to come down the pipe. This is why we will be implementing a “round” system. Every two weeks or so, we will update our contender list with potential contenders (games that are shaping up very well) contenders (games that have scored very well) and our thoughts on which games are serious contenders and which ones are not.
Okay, now that we’ve gotten the explanatory crap out of the way, expect to see the first round results for all genres in a week or two (or maybe even sooner if we ever agree on something)! Oh, and one last thing: Feel free to put in your own imput on potential nominations, as we may not be able to think of all of the contenders. So… see ya in a bit!
Edit: One last thing: Expect to see some of our debates translate into new posts on Gamers Paradise. So, again… see ya in a bit!
