January Game of the Month Vote Off
it appears I failed to select the"two vote" option :-/ sorry guys. Guess I boogered that up :-8

January Game of the Month Vote Off
!!!NOTE!!! Each member gets 2 votes!

Also, we only had eight nominations this month. Since it is a special month and all, all eight are in the voting. Remember you get TWO votes, so this will equal things out a bit ;)

2013 Award: The John Hancock Award
Norcals, no doubt!

January Game of the Month Nomination Topic
Banjo was last years open month winner ;)

This is my favorite month of these each year. I cant believe it has ran for three years straight as of next month! just crazy!

January Game of the Month Nomination Topic
Hello everyone, Welcome to the game of the month nomination topic.

Here is how it works:
Normally each member gets to nominate 1 game that was not in the top 20 in sales. This month is different, games in the top 20 in sales ARE eligible!
The topic will remain open for the first half of the month.
At which point, I will write each of the nominations on a piece of paper, and draw 5 total out of a bowl.
Those 5 will then be put to a vote for the rest of the month to decide the official "Nintendo 64 Forever Game of the Month". You may nominate a game already chosen by another member if you wish too, but only one piece of paper per game nominated will be put in to the bowl. If someone has already nominated a game you wished to nominate, please consider going with your 2nd choice. Those nominated that are not drawn out as well as the 4 that lose the vote will be eligible for re-nomination next month if you so choose.

In case anybody is lost here, the idea is for you to play the winning game for a bit, and then
comment on your thoughts after playing. We used to discuss things like game play, graphics, sound, controls, replay value, as well as how the game has stood the test of time. This is a great chance to discover fun games you perhaps missed out on.

If you do not own the winning game; perhaps consider borrowing, buying, renting (anybody still rent n64 games?), or find another way of playing (emulation) or perhaps even check for it on the virtual console.
Any questions? Just ask away...

In the spirit of going with this special anniversary, I choose Diddy Kong Racing! A favorite of mine, that I always associate with winter time :D
I look forward to seeing how opening the top 20 affects both the nominations, and perhaps the winner!

Snowboard Kids 2
Never played it myself. Seemed to have a solid following though. Thoughts?
