RGN C64 Gamers’ Choice Award 2021


  1. Each voting panel member selects 5 of their favourite nominated games (each selection is worth 1 point)

  1. This doesn’t make any sense to me. 25 December 2020 to 15 December 2021 is not 2021, it’s not even 52 weeks. With a game of the year, what is wrong with just January 1st to the 31st of December, and then start the voting/awards in January?
    Sonic is clearly the game of 2021.

  2. Well, how a game released tomorrow would be part of the contest? The dates are meant to include games released between the previous and the current award…

  3. We would expect to receive comments about awards being based on a calendar year and that is a valid view for a ‘game of the year’ award but for RGN Awards it has always been from the start of one RGN series season to the end of the series season – which is why we avoid referring it as ‘game of the year’ award.

    But not to worry, Sonic will be in contention for 2022, having the hype removed from the game will allow it to be reflected upon purely based on its gameplay. We saw how for 2020, once all the hype was removed from Super Mario it finished in third place upon everyone reflecting upon the game after many months.
