GotY Awards 2011 - Results Breakdown

By Clever Jake, 4 years ago
Hi again,

Congratulations to all our winners. Before we take an in-depth look at the results I first wish to let you know a bit more about the voting process. Each of your selections was allocated a score based on your preference

First place - 3 points
Second place - 2 points
Third place - 1 point

Obviously the winner was the game with the most points. The following charts show the percentage of the overall score each game/DLC received for that question.

Let’s look at the results in a bit more detail

Interesting stats from week 1

TA Game Of The Year Awards 2011 - Week One Selections

The big vote in the first week was the shooters vote and the 'threequels' certainly lived up to their expectation taking 61.5% of the entire vote and 75% of all first place selections. Although the third person shooter, http://www.trueachievements.com/Gears-of-War-3-xbox-360.htm won the best shooter, it was the first person shooters that won the genre war taking 70% of the points, with http://www.trueachievements.com/Battlefield-3-xbox-360.htm picking up Best FPS. It was a particularly poor showing for http://www.trueachievements.com/Modern-Warfare-3-xbox-3....htm which picked up exactly 333 less votes than Battlefield 3 despite having nearly 20,000 more players.

With 52952 votes week 1 attracted the most votes.
http://www.trueachievements.com/Halo-CE-Anniversary-xbo....htm picked up more third places than any other game - 551
http://www.trueachievements.com/Portal-2-xbox-360.htm was the biggest winner in the first week, a massive 57.3% voted it as the top platform game.
http://www.trueachievements.com/Winter-Stars-xbox-360.htm was the biggest loser and had the fewest votes (5)...Twice!


Interesting stats from week 2

TA Game Of The Year Awards 2011 - Week Two Selections

Unsurprisingly http://www.trueachievements.com/Skyrim-xbox-360.htm was the clear winner in the big RPG vote taking 59% of the top votes and over 75% of the voters had it their top 3, impressive. Only 0.8% separated http://www.trueachievements.com/Magic-2012-xbox-360.htm from http://www.trueachievements.com/Full-House-Poker-xbox-3....htm this was the closest vote and the only one in which the winner didn’t get the most vote’s 1087 v 1114

http://www.trueachievements.com/FINAL-FANTASY-XIII2-xbo....htm picked up exactly 300 votes, odd considering only 95 users have played it… fanboyism?
43% voted http://www.trueachievements.com/Angry-Birds-xbox-360.htm as their top phone game.
With 6 points the RPG Students of Round recieved the fewest points in week 2
