Coint & Plick VOTING thread - best games of 2019 (also campaign here)

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

Over two months of 2020 have passed, and you know what that means: it's time to catch up on the games from 2019 so you can make a ballot for Coint & Plick! You have 100 points to allocate. You can allocate 1-30 points per game, as you like, to anything nominated (or write-ins I guess). There are plenty of convenient ways to vote! Why, you could...

a) Make a copy of this spreadsheet, fill it out, and e-mail me the spreadsheet (ps2ilxⓐgmail.com)
b) Use the spreadsheet (above) and enter the "copy/paste" section into this Google Form. I PREFER THIS METHOD!
c) Manually make your ballot, spacing your number of points and your game with " /// " (e.g. 30 /// Minesweeper), each game on a new line, and e-mail it to me (ps2ilxⓐgmail.com)

Please only vote for games you played on that platform! Don't use a port as an excuse to vote for something you missed last year! The list of platforms is in the second tab of that spreadsheet, I haven't confirmed all of them yet, just make sure your best of 2019 is from 2019, ok? There's a bonus section for non-2019 games.

Also: please comment in here if you think you'll vote! I wanna know we'll have more than 5 people!

Also also: yes I am posting in ILE again, some people miss it when it's ILG. Sue me!

Wow, no deadline. If you're reading this, the deadline is March 27th. I guess if a mod sees this it'd be nice if it said "deadline March 27" at the end of the title (but no big deal, nobody makes the deadline anyway lol)

No sorry I’m voting for Return of the Obra Dinn (Switch) and you can’t punish me

Swilling Ambergris, Esq. (silby), Tuesday, 3 March 2020 16:12 (one year ago) link

Hurrah!

I had an idea for a side poll: your favorite moment in games. Basically I just want to vote for the Ashtray Maze in Control.

Feminism-Appropriating Regressive Transphobe (Leee), Tuesday, 3 March 2020 16:12 (one year ago) link

what I want this thread to deliver is probably the impossible, a good new Ps4 or pc tower defense game in 2020.

hah i was actually thinknig of something like this... but i decided not to include it, because there's no real way to "count" them... best to just talk about them in the rollout!!

Campaign to move el0n mu5k thread to ILM (Will M.), Tuesday, 3 March 2020 16:17 (one year ago) link

Ah, that's a good point!

BTW, I'm not sure how much this affects things but Sunless Skies shows up twice in the Nominations sheet of the Google doc.

Feminism-Appropriating Regressive Transphobe (Leee), Tuesday, 3 March 2020 22:16 (one year ago) link

i will vote! gonna try to play through the outer wilds and luigis mansion 3 before doing so though as my ballot needs a little more fuel

ciderpress, Tuesday, 3 March 2020 22:21 (one year ago) link

gah thanks for the heads up! it wouldn't affect the thing i use to compile my ballots, but i deleted one of the sunless skieses to make it look nicer anyway :)

Also if it wasn't clear I intend to vote.

for a second when i read that i thought i had clicked on that other thread

We're talking about the NY vs. Chicago style pizza thread, right?

Feminism-Appropriating Regressive Transphobe (Leee), Wednesday, 4 March 2020 00:08 (one year ago) link

I have been not-participating on this website for like 15 years but I always vote in this! Games have pretty much replaced TV shows for me (except I Think You Should Leave, I’m not a monster) so I played a ton last year, though a lot was self-care-ish revisits of non-2019 wander-around-in-nature games like BOTW and Horizon Zero Dawn.

Leee otm about the Ashtray Maze, Control had some great set pieces.

orifex, Wednesday, 4 March 2020 01:27 (one year ago) link

Ballot submitted!

ufo, Friday, 6 March 2020 07:34 (one year ago) link

keep sending them folks! and if you're looking for something to play and put on your list, may i recommend the value-priced OUTER WILDS, which i started playing about a week ago and just holy shit

Campaign to move el0n mu5k thread to ILM (Will M.), Monday, 9 March 2020 18:03 (one year ago) link

i am NOT recommending THE OUTER WORLDS which is nice enough i guess but is a different game and is not "just holy shit" levels of spectacular

Campaign to move el0n mu5k thread to ILM (Will M.), Monday, 9 March 2020 18:04 (one year ago) link

yeah i think both are great but outer wilds is definitely extraordinary.

Fizzles, Monday, 9 March 2020 18:32 (one year ago) link

i have not voted yet.

Fizzles, Monday, 9 March 2020 18:35 (one year ago) link

Still got a bunch of games to play before I vote. Working on Ape Out now and I will definitely throw it some points. It's good! A number of epic store freebies like it will probably make my list.

Judi Dench's Human Hand (methanietanner), Monday, 9 March 2020 19:30 (one year ago) link

I just finished Outer Wilds and threw points at it put don't see the extraordinariness, we can hash it out during the rollout I guess!

Feminism-Appropriating Regressive Transphobe (Leee), Monday, 9 March 2020 22:02 (one year ago) link

8 ballots so far! keep em coming!

there's a big log jam in the top right now (it is early, but still)... this could be our first year in a while where it's a photofinish for #1 (and as of right now... 2, 3 and 4 as well) :O

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Thursday, 12 March 2020 18:02 (one year ago) link

voted, jumped the gun and assumed that the games i'm currently playing will continue to be good through to the end

ciderpress, Friday, 13 March 2020 21:12 (one year ago) link

i was pumped to vote cause 2019 was my first full year of playing new games in many years, but then i realized what i felt like tons of gaming was really just playing like six new games, most of which i haven't finished, and being excited about lots of others that i haven't yet had time for. voted anyway but mostly for stuff i'm still playing

karl...arlk...rlka...lkar..., Friday, 13 March 2020 21:40 (one year ago) link

I promise to vote

silby, Saturday, 14 March 2020 16:21 (one year ago) link

What's the rules on write-ins? I forgot to go back and nom some IF games, prob little point in me voting without including them. Also what if I have spent many an enjoyable hour watching my SO play Death Stranding but haven't actually played it myself yet?

emil.y, Saturday, 14 March 2020 16:44 (one year ago) link

I say not playing a game is a perfectly legit way of playing a game

silby, Saturday, 14 March 2020 16:51 (one year ago) link

i agree

ciderpress, Saturday, 14 March 2020 16:58 (one year ago) link

i'm cool with write-ins! noms just gives ppl somewhere to start.

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Saturday, 14 March 2020 19:01 (one year ago) link

and yeah games can be experienced in many ways other than playing them

Nhex, Saturday, 14 March 2020 23:46 (one year ago) link

jeepers i haven't checked in in a while. WFH got my internet routine all weird. we don't have a lot of entries, ppl still good to hit the This-Friday deadline?

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Monday, 23 March 2020 03:18 (one year ago) link

have voted fwiw.

Fizzles, Monday, 23 March 2020 08:06 (one year ago) link

that fwiw is because my votes were rather mainstream i’m afraid. interested to see if it surfaces any stuff i’d missed entirely.

Fizzles, Monday, 23 March 2020 08:08 (one year ago) link

i wanted to play outer wilds before i voted in this but looking like i won't get a chance so i'll just vote on what i've gotten to

Mordy, Monday, 23 March 2020 14:19 (one year ago) link

Okay, I just voted - half of mine are write-ins as I was rubbish at nominating, would you like me to ilxmail you links to them so you know what they actually are, Will? Or I could post them here, though that's kind of spoilery.

emil.y, Monday, 23 March 2020 14:47 (one year ago) link

I think I found links for all of the write-ins! all good here :)

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Monday, 23 March 2020 16:34 (one year ago) link

i voted too

Mordy, Monday, 23 March 2020 16:37 (one year ago) link

i wonder if i'll be the only vote for my #1 (30 points)

Mordy, Monday, 23 March 2020 16:38 (one year ago) link

so we have 12 ballots now. not enough to even put 77 games up. we're getting there but i hope we have more ballots! we managed to hit 20 last year (i think, can't find the ballot compiler, it's gotta be somewhere) and 22 ballots for 2017 games (for some reason i found this one easily?).

c'mon ilx VOTE OR DIE AND RESPAWN AT THE LAST SAVE LOCATION

xp got yours as well mordy! i'll never tell if you're the only voter for it~ (until the results of course!)

> I just don't play enough of-the-moment games

same, only 2019 i've played were judgment and sekiro, and clumsy me noped out of the latter laughably early on so it doesn't even count

chihuahuau, Monday, 23 March 2020 17:31 (one year ago) link

wtf how could i forget death stranding, make that 2 games, 3 if dq xi was eligible but the ps4 version was 2018

chihuahuau, Monday, 23 March 2020 17:36 (one year ago) link

I will vote eventually.

DQ XI switch is eligible.

Joey Corona (Euler), Monday, 23 March 2020 17:47 (one year ago) link

I'd vote but I'm totally out of the loop when it comes to new releases. I've mostly just been trying to catch up with my back catalogue.

xp yes but

Please only vote for games you played on that platform! Don't use a port as an excuse to vote for something you missed last year!

Will, I made some mistakes on my ballot can I resubmit?

Mordy, Friday, 27 March 2020 16:10 (one year ago) link

go for it! Just call yourself "mordy 2" or something so i can confirm

still stuck at 14 ballots here!

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Friday, 27 March 2020 16:33 (one year ago) link

I also had to edit my ballot because I forgot to nominate someone bc I assumed everyone would nominate everything I liked... ooooops, poll runner has to write in a game :(

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Friday, 27 March 2020 16:38 (one year ago) link

i ended up doing a write-in too i somehow forgot about charming indie city sim Islanders

Mordy, Friday, 27 March 2020 16:40 (one year ago) link

Just voted and I, too, wrote in Islanders.

Judi Dench's Human Hand (methanietanner), Friday, 27 March 2020 16:55 (one year ago) link

Cracked open Control this week so I could add it to my ballot; def worth it.

Nhex, Friday, 27 March 2020 16:57 (one year ago) link

Can I send mine over the weekend ?

Joey Corona (Euler), Friday, 27 March 2020 18:03 (one year ago) link

weekend's ok! i'll keep it open a few more days, if anyone else wants to vote who hasn't yet just tell me soon or i'll close the voting on like monday

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Friday, 27 March 2020 22:38 (one year ago) link

mordy your new ballot comes in at 95/100, wanna add 5 to something? (just gesture vaguely towards what here vs re-sending ballot)

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Friday, 27 March 2020 22:45 (one year ago) link

(or put 5 on someting you cut from the prev list - u cut a game starting with c and another with r from your 5-pointers)

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Friday, 27 March 2020 22:47 (one year ago) link

Please give five pts to the game that starts with C that I cut sorry for making more work for you

I'm gonna close voting now unless anyone speaks up! Working on images, adding the text last, so here's your chance! Couple more hours to go "WAIT WAIT WILL STOP"

17 ballots, and... actually these are pretty interesting results... you'll see~~~

when do you think rollout will start?

Mordy, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 13:46 (one year ago) link

At the latest I'd say Monday, but I will try to start it before that -- maybe like Thursday? Maybe even tomorrow. Depends on how much time I have for editing images (and how smoothly it goes considering I don't have access to my desktop, gf wfh needs it and that's evenings)

Whenever I'm close enough to announce it I'll put a post in here!

Hackers (1995) (Will M.), Tuesday, 31 March 2020 17:26 (one year ago) link

v excited for it - loads of new game recommendations are especially critical atm
