Hey PSU community!
After settling some disagreements and making painstaking cuts, our editorial team finally came together to nominate five games for each category of PlayStation Universe’s 2010 game awards. For this year’s comprehensive PSU.com game awards, we’ve decided to give you guys and girls just as much as a say as our staff team. When we finally reveal our editorial team’s recipient of any given award, the community’s choice will be displayed just as prominently alongside it. So, if you want your voice to be heard, you have to VOTE! (And, as a favor to us, please get the word out to other members to do the same!)
The rules are as follows. You may vote only once, represented by a single post in this thread, in as few or as many of the categories as you wish. To vote, please copy and paste the list of nominees below, then cut out four of the five games in each category, leaving only the one you intend to vote for. If you wish to abstain from voting in a particular category, simply delete it entirely.
Members have an entire week to vote. Votes posted later than December 22 at 5 PM EST will not be considered. After that time, we’ll tally the votes to determine the community choices for each award. Again, when we reveal our editorial team’s award recipients, the community choices will appear just as prominently alongside them.
Alright, that’s enough blabbering — CLICK HERE TO VOTE!
