    The 'didn't play' option is exercised by not rating a game at all. I ended up rating maybe 5 games/DLCs total, having snagged several 2018 releases in the Christmas sales.

    You know that thing called human nature, right? If people want to increase the chances of winning of their favortie games, they will try to decrease the chances of other games by downvoting them. GOTY is becoming less and less interesting each year.

    V_K this is the definition of a poll you will find in the dictionaries:

    A poll is a survey in which people are asked their opinions about something, usually in order to find out how popular something is or what people intend to do in the future.

    Now go ahead and hide your head in the sand, since you want to sound so special by doing polls in an "innovative" and "revolutionary" way.

    Actually, no, I won't find this wording in the dictionaries. At least not in the authoritative ones.

    And a 'didn't play' option would decrease the number of these incidents by forcing the user to acknowledge their deception until they're overcome with guilt?

    Of course that's not what you're saying, because your post isn't related to mine at all. So why not post your theory independently instead of attaching your tendrils to anyone who happens to pass by.

    Battle Brothers DLC is missing. I think that's quite an important one.


    Edit: Has been added now, thanks!

    Im starting to feel like these poll don't really tell us all that much since games are increasingly released in such horrid states that you really only want to play them 6-12 months after release when the bugs are ironed out and the DLCs released. This makes me unable to rate the perhaps most promising releases of the year (KC and Kingmaker) since I have not played either of them yet.

    It's related to your post. The option would not make a bit of difference because that is not how people behave. People should be allowed to vote in their favorite game, and that's it. Everything else is pretentious nonsense to reinforce Felipepepe political beliefs.

    Meh, of this year's releases it seems I've only seriously played KCD and Deadfire. Voted 4 for KCD and 2 for Deadfire.

    it's safe to say you've missed nothing of importance.
    better versions of those new games already exist.

    Kingdom Come ? Daggerfall !
    Bugfinder: Patchmaker & Pillows 2 ? Baldur's Gate & Icewind Dale !
    Bard's Tale 4 ? Wizardry 8 !

    ATOM seems nice, but in the end it's "just" a homage to Fallout, so go play Fallout until you've grown tired of it and then play ATOM.

    Haven't been able to play most of these games because they are still in beta, pretty much. I'll be abstaining this year.

    no Super Seducer anywhere on the poll. Yeah the game with more branching dialogue trees and C&C than fallout isn't on the list, okay, makes sense.

    i'm done with this site

    The votes should be publically visible. When the voting has closed, FelipePepe should spearhead an inquisition where every user who voted is interrogated extensively on whether they actually played the games they marked zero. If the inquisition finds out you've voted on games you haven't played, you're immediately cast into the fiery pits of Hell.

    This can be easily simplified by casting anyone who rates ATOM less than a 4 into the pits of hell since they clearly did not play it
