Should we wait until after Christmas to do final GOTY stuff? After all, that's when a lot of people get some games they had interest in but didn't pick up immediately.

@ludist210
You mean Super Mario Land, right? Not the ambassador SMB?
Posted: 12/14/11, 22:58:19
@anon_mastermind

Can we not count Ambassador titles? Because the NES games are coming to the VC eventually...
Posted: 12/14/11, 23:02:44
I don't think we should. They're exclusive freebies, not widely available yet.

Is there an easily accessible list somewhere that shows which games are eligible?
This is the only game site I frequent, and our database only tracks "date submitted."

That's not a bad idea, and it doesn't bother me. Maybe if we had done that last year, 999 would have rightfully won DS GOTY.
