    Some tough competition! Just voted, but it definitely must feel like an honor for Terraria to go up against such famous games for this award!

    Eh, sorry, I would've done Terraria for this one, but... AoE II is also up for it. Sorry, that game is way older than Terraria and still awesome. I will be voting on Terraria for tomorrow though.

  9. It's funny, i have 3/5 of the games nominated for this award, I like them all, but this actually IS the one game that keeps me coming back to it over and over again. That said, I know which game is getting my vote.

    ...can ReLogic please stop 'begging' for thess awards? Twitter has been filled with tweets like "vote for Terraria" for days now, and I like to vote for the game that I actually think deserves some award the most, instead of wich game's devs ask it every hour of the day.

    The voting system only allows one day to vote for each award and the titles nominated. The Twitter shares and posts are a reminder and a way to get the word out there to people who may not know/remember. Also IT IS REALLY COOL THAT WE ARE NOMINATED! For an indie title to be up there with an amazing title such as Skyrim, is a HUGE deal! So, yeah, we are pretty stoked about it. I paused Christmas dinner and made my mom create a Steam account and vote. Too far? Nope :) :) :)

    Adding to that - we cannot control members of our community that feel the need to get the word out either...nor, quite frankly, would we want to. If people want to join in our excitement, who are we to kill their fun? :)

    As safeman noted, it's a simple reminder. Nothing more. No one is begging for anything. People will vote for whichever game they feel is most worthy. However, it being Xmas Eve / Xmas for our voting days, a few reminders hurt no one. That's all you have or will see on our end. ;)

    Also want to echo the amazing honor of seeing our tiny team up there against the behemoths of the industry. It's kinda cool, so pardon a bit of excitement on our end. ;)

    If any of that bothers anyone, our apologies - but we won't feel bad about sharing our excitement with our awesome community. :cool:

    If you want to vote for the game you think deserves it the most, do it. Just because someone tells you to do something doesn't force you into doing it.

    This also applies to basically everybody else. Just because the devs/community leaders say to vote for the game doesn't make people vote for it. The aforementioned people want to let people know that the vote is happening, and their audience is highly likely to vote for Terraria, so the best way to phrase that would be "go vote for Terraria."

    I, personally, hope that anyone voting for Terraria has some belief that the game deserves the award; I definitely do.

    I have played all five games nominated for the Test of Time award, and I could content myself by just simply saying that Terraria fits the description best (which I genuinely do), but you probably know me better than that.

    I would say that although all of these games are still as good as they were the first time, only two are decisively better now than they were back then, namely Civ V and Terraria. Civ V needed two rather expensive DLCs of features which, quite genuinely, should have been in the base game, to do that. Terraria started off with solid gameplay right off the bat, and somehow, over the course of five years, managed to improve on that gameplay while preserving the elegance of the existing mechanics and not bloating the game content-wise.

    But I'm not honouring you because you made the right design decisions. I'm honouring you because you decided to make those decisions at all. You could have left Terraria at any point over the last 5 years and you would have left a solid game. But you kept coming back, dedicated to make Terraria even better. And after five years of nurturing both the game and the community, and being up against four AAA companies, I think it's safe to say you have written Indie game history.

    I'm voting for Terraria because it's a great game, absolutely. But I'm mainly voting for Terraria because you guys and girls at Re-Logic really, really deserve that win.

    I've been following this forum for about 2 years now but I've finally decided I wanted to make an account and be a more involved part of this amazing community. Terraria is the best game I have ever had the pleasure to play and I feel that it's only fair to vote for a game that has given me so much so that so many more people are able to discover and experience this game the way I and many others have already done.
