    So the polls are live and the discussion can begin.

    Don't forgot you can vote once every 12 hours! So keep voting you could be the difference!

    Something missing from the list on ps4/PS3 or vita this year? Write it in and state your case here

    Did you play something on PS3 this year that others didn't? State your case for getting votes.

    Is there a game missing from our list? State your case to have it be a write in? Most people say write in's don't win. Can this be the year one does?

    Lobby!
    Beg!
    Bribe?
    Let's have fun and have a great gaming discussion!

    C'mon everyone! We know for a fact there are games you want that aren't on the list of nominees. Make your voices heard!

    keithddunn Wait....what?

    I, and this should surprise no one considering I've streamed it twice, will be writing in Among The Sleep in a couple categories where appropriate. It came out LATE in the year and very few people have played it yet but it's a great game and worthy of some love!

    I've been writing in SUPERBEAT: Xonic for Vita game of the year. Love that game.

    No big deal, but I'm curious about how Rocket League is considered a new IP. Isn't it the sequel to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battlecars?

    Anyway, hoping to see a write-in win game of the year this year. I think the Witcher 3 has a pretty good chance (although I'm not sure how strong the RPG community is at PS Nation). One of the best games I've played in years.

    Pretty strong year for games for it to be excluded.

    This is a somewhat... umm, there have been discussions on this. I think in the end, it was decided that Rocket League is less a sequel and more a spiritual successor to S.A.R.P.B, so it's a new IP in the sense that Bloodborne is a new IP. I guess it comes down to what you think an IP is.

    We talked about rocket league being in new ip category. We decided it should be since new gameplay new console new cars.

    Fair enough. Must have missed the convo on that. Again, I was just curious about that one. Didn't really matter either way.

    I wrote in Until Dawn for the Unique Experience category. I really liked that game and can't think of anything that I've played before that controlled and told a story like that game did. It's also my pick for PS4 game of the year and I hope it gets it.

    Good choice. That was a tough category to whittle down.

    World of Tanks should maybe be removed as an option because it's still in beta.

    You are correct it is, but at the moment it doesn't look like it has a shot at winning

    I wrote in Tales from the Borderlands for Best Adventure Game category. Because I believe it's a crime not to love what they did for that game.

    I also wrote in Superbeat: XoNiC for best Vita game, because that game because it was the best (the only) rhythm game I ever played on a console and I absolutely loved it.

    I did not just "pick" games for PS3 because... I didn't play any last year.

    You should really try out the other DJMAX games. Technika Tune is available on Vita and DJMAX Portable 3 is a PSP game but should be on the store. At least in NA; not sure what's available on PSN in Korea.
