Announcing: Meteoriks Awards 2016!

category: general [glöplog]
Quote:
The main idea for these awards is that they don't blindly follow what wins first price. Otherwise what would be the use for them?


Aside from that, there are only 5 nominees per category. Combine all 1st place entries at all parties for an entire year, and you have far more than 5.
So even if you did only nominate winners, not all would be nominated.

Other than that, obviously it is possible that the quality of prods at party X in general was much lower than the quality at party Y, so even a 2nd or 3rd place entry at party Y is received better than the winner at party X.

And yes, there are also 'hidden gems'... Things that might not have placed high in a particular compo, because it wasn't the right type of compo/audience for that prod, but people outside the party/compo may appreciate it greatly anyway.

Some nominations are prods that I had missed before, because I only looked at the best-ranked prods at certain parties/in certain categories. And I think these nominations were well-deserved, so yes, the jury seems to have a done a good job.

Shame the dramaqueen award didn't make it, if just for fun.

Someone found the postern to Meteoriks interactive competition to avoid nominating Pouet Toplists 2015 "Top 10 games"'s 1st place.


cry harder.
To be honest, it's not that you didn't perform some sort of technical feat. It's up for debate by some if it's still really chess, but regardless chess isn't exactly the sort of things most demosceners would fawn over. They're more appreciative of what was crammed into the size, than the fact that it plays chess.

If you consider that, then, I think it doesn't quite make it on two fronts: there were plenty of far more entertaining small-size productions that deserved to be nominated. If we ignore the size, then we're just left with chess. Those who determined the nominees decided there were plenty of productions that provided far more original interactivity.

TL;DR: Just let it go! (and no, don't start singing the song from Frozen. I managed to avoid hearing it and I'm probably happier for it.)
