Unofficial Best Review of an IF Comp 2016 Game Competition

Nomination phase:
You can nominate reviews for the voting phase. No more than three reviews per reviewer in total (the ones with the most nominations). Have you read a good review? If you write ifcomp reviews, which is your best?
You may update your nomination if you change your mind.

To nominate a review, post a comment to this thread. State the reviewer and the game:
Sobol reviews Toiletworld.

You can quote the review briefly:
Sobol reviews Toiletworld.
“I guess I can predict which game will be at the last place.”

If the review is hosted on another website (not a review thread in the forum), include an URL for the review. (Just copy the URL, the forum will make it into a link automatically).
Sobol reviews Toiletworld.
“I guess I can predict which game will be at the last place.”
viewtopic.php?f=23&p=113865#p113862

Voting phase:
On November 7th, the nomination phase closes and the voting phase opens. The top ?10 reviews with most nominations will be listed in a poll. If two reviews tie for nominations, reviews will be ordered by nomination (first-nominated first).

UPDATE: Nominating multiple reviews is allowed. No more than three reviews by each reviewer will be included in the voting phase.

Can we make multiple nominations? Seems like there are few enough total nominations anyway. If so, here’s my second:

Emily Short’s “Me Who Done The Walkin’”, reviewing five games in the comp dealing with similar themes.

Hi Doug, thanks for voting (again)! As they say in the U. S. A., vote early vote often!

If no previous voters object, I will allow everyone to make multiple nominations (only the first 3 reviews by a single reviewer will be accepted - don’t just dump everything!). It would be nice to see a review for every IF Comp game. There are still five days (until November 7th) to make your nomination(s).

I’m with Billy on this one, but I was actually more stirred by Emily’s later piece on Take on her blog:

Just brilliant.

Even though I am probably going to cast my vote for Emily Short, I believe the OP wanted this stage of the process to just be picking different entries. So I am going to change my nomination to

  1. lglasser Twitch reviews The Shoe Dept. twitch.tv/lglasser/v/92851893

I have to be honest, between all of the games and everything else, I only watched about 3 minutes of it, and I haven’t seen any of the others, although I will probably once all of the comps are over, it was good, I just haven’t had the time to watch them. I am nominating this because I believe expanding IF to different social media platforms is a very beneficial thing and it should be recognized.

  1. zarf Parser vs choice entries – the tally. You can add this one to the voting or not, its not a specific game review but data is always useful, and I wanted it to be recognized.

Thank you.
