July Game of the Month Nomination Topic

There are some changes from our typical format, so please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the new format.


1 - The list has been reset. Past GotM winners are back on the table. Wave Race served not as the 85th winner of Game of the Month. It will instead be 1st on an entirely new list.

2 - The top 20 in sales list will be eligible more often. In fact they will be eligible on any month where a top 20 game didn't win the previous month. Also top 20 games cannot win more than 5 months out of the year. This ensures that some of the top 20 games make it through the first 4 years of a cycle. Also it means that up to 4 more top 20 games can win this year before the rest become ineligible.

3 - The NA/Pal region restriction is over. If a game unavailable in your region is nominated and wins, perhaps take the chance to read and learn what you missed out on. JP region exclusives are still not eligible.

4 - Also to spice things up a bit, I want to honor those who participate frequently. I will be keeping track of a points system to reward someone at the end of the year. Staff (other than myself) ARE eligible too! Members will get a point each month that they nominate a game. The member(s) who nominate the winning game will get another point. Anyone who comments on the winning games post to discuss the winner will get another point PER POST (while that game is the active GotM, and as long as they are meaningful posts). At the end of the year, I will tally the points and name the winner the "2018 Nintendo 64 Forever Game of the Month MVP". That person will receive a Nintendo/PSN/Xbox gift card of their choosing of at least $20 in value (I will try to do more if I can). I will be making this retroactive to include the January GotM nomination topic, and will of course include the Wave Race Topic I just started. I do plan to eventually incorporate a running scoreboard so folks know where they stack up points wise

Here is how it works:

The topic will remain open for about a week. 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. Please note, in certain situations, I may forego a drawing and include all nominated games in the poll.

In case anybody is lost here, the idea is for you to discuss the game. If you own it or have access to it, perhaps play it a bit to refresh yourself on it. Take some time to reflect on it. Discuss what worked and what didn't. How were the graphics/gameplay/music received when it was released? How has the game stood the test of time? This is a great chance to discover fun games you perhaps missed out on, or to learn about a game that was not available in your region.

Here are the list of the top 20 N64 games according to sales. **This month they are NOT eligible**

1. Super Mario 64
2. Mario Kart 64
3. GoldenEye 007
4. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
