Competition Update

A flood of votes came in over the weekend. Here’s how they break down.

RPG – Soulfu is leaps ahead of the competition for Best Art. Freedroid currently holds the spot for Best Story/World, with Egoboo trailing not far behind. Freedroid and Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup are tied for Most Innovative Gameplay, and Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup is eeking out a slight lead for Best Game of the Genre.

Simulation – OpenTTD is now winning in every category.

Turn-Based Strategy – Battle for Wesnoth has soared in the polls, now holding the top spot in every single category.

Multiplayer Shooter- Alien Arena is still leading in all the categories, but Tremulous has been steadily creeping up behind it.

Action and Artillery – Hedgewars is ahead in Best Art, Best Story/World, and Overall Best Game, but is facing stiff competition from Scorched 3D. Liquid Wars still holds the title for Most Innovative Gameplay.

Real Time Strategy – Kernel Panic holds the title for Most Innovative Gameplay, while 0 AD moves ahead in its domination of the Best Art category. Warzone2100 is currently winning for Best Story/World and is tied with Complete Annihilation for Best Game of the Genre.

Arcade – Armagetron Advanced is holding its territory with Best Art, Best Story/World, and Best Game of the Genre. Frets on Fire is currently taking Most Innovative Gameplay and is only a few votes behind Armagetron in the rest of the categories.

  1. The only category I haven’t seen till date is social simulation in FOSS games. Something like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_simulation_game or/and http://www.scribd.com/doc/402661/Social-Simulation-Games-2006 or/and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Social_simulation_video_games

    Something of the above would be cool.

    • Agreed. I use to rock the Sims when it first came out, though I haven’t touched any of the recent versions. After I was through building my house I remember being struck by ADHD. I raised an entire cities in just one night. Twas good.
