Michibiku’s Game of the Year Tiebreaker Contest!

When two people decide on the Game of the Year, there’s more than a little animosity. That’s where you come in!


  • Tweet using either #GrahamGOTY or #JenniGOTY to let us know who you think should get the tie-breaking vote in our deliberations. (And follow us so we can contact you if you win.)
  • One of you will win Michibiku’s overall Game of the Year! We don’t know what that is yet; all we can say at this point is that it will be, in our opinion, an incredibly good game.
  • Voting ends on December 22 at noon Eastern. We’ll tally up the votes, and the person with the most will decide the winner in any deadlocked award categories.
  • Since our Game of the Year could very well be a retail or region-locked release, entrants must live in the U.S. or Canada. (Sorry, but overseas shipping is expensive.)
  • The winning entry will be randomly drawn from both hashtags, and the winner will be announced and contacted by DM on January 1, the day we reveal our overall Game of the Year.
  • Only one entry per person per day. Anyone found to be entering with multiple accounts or violating the Twitter Rules will be ineligible.

To make things more fun, we’ll be reading your tweets, retweeting and maybe even rewarding the best and funniest responses. Keep an eye on your DMs, people, and make those tweets count!

Now, for the candidates:


Jenni Lada, Co-Editor
I’m one of you: a woman of the people. I’m down in the trenches, trying the freemium tripe. We laugh about the levels of fanservice in games. Plus, I’m cute. Did I mention I’m cute? Graham snubs the free-to-play set, automatically decides that when he says something, he’s 100% right with no debate, and frankly, isn’t as cute as I am. I also have freaking fantastic taste in games, thanks to having played a wide variety this past year. Do you know how many games I played in 2015? I’ve played 82 domestic games this year. Add in imports, and we’re up to 90. Yes, one of them was Neko Atsume, but I’d never go so far as to let the rest of you down by naming it Game of the Year.

Commit to the cutest candidate. Vote for Jenni.



Graham Russell, Co-Editor

Who can you really trust in this election? My opponent plays free-to-play alpaca boyfriend coffee art crane game dating simulators. Which is fine! I’m happy to live in a world that gives you the freedom to do that. But is that the type of candidate you want representing you and deciding what games are actually good? I’m the voice of reason in these deliberations, and with your help, that voice can be a little bit louder. Thanks for your support!

Vote for reason. Vote for common sense. Vote #GrahamGOTY.
