    2017 - Peer choice Awards - On behalf of all Twin Galaxies Gamers.

    Here we go! The 2017 - Peer choice awards have arrived. Gonna get this started early this year, so you have plenty of time to think about your choices to vote, or update your votes.

    Last years thread was a fun-filled success. Therefore, I wish to keep the same formats and rules the same ones again...

    The 2016 link:
    http://www.twingalaxies.com/showthre...283#post874283

    Here are the categories:

    2017 Gamer of the Year - (Arcade/MAME)
    2017 Gamer of the Year - (Consoles/PC)
    2017 Rookie of the Year - (Must be a new member in the year 2017, as per your profile page)
    2017 Prolific Gamer - ( Most creative, innovated, most entertaining submission videos to watch)
    2017 Contributor of the Year - ( A positive influence and growth to the community, via forum, blogs, adjudicating, etc.)
    2017 Performance of the Year - (On any specific game submission already accepted)


    Rules:

    - You may only choose one gamer per category. (No ties/double entries)
    - You may not vote for yourself.
    - All votes are 100% full transparency on this thread only. No PM's allowed, nor from outside social media sources.
    - Deadline for voting is January 1st, 2018 - Midnight (EST) (I will post the final tally on New Years day)
    - If you decide to change your mind within the deadline, you may do so as often as you like. (Just make note of an edit update)
    - Reasons or details of your choices are strictly optional, if you so choose to disclose explanations and rationale.

    Remember the most important rule: This is simply for fun and bragging rights only.
    GOOD LUCK TO ALL !

    2017 Rookie of the Year - The one and only @Intellivision Master himself Mr Al Birman.

    He joined TG this year and took it by storm with his Intellivision submissions. He earned himself a high number of World Record scores, as well as credibility points, for the short time he has been a member. He is very nice to talk to, he has great advice for other gamers, always contributes positively to submission threads, and has inspired other gamers to push themselves.

    So anyone is allowed to vote in these categories? I ask because I was on vacation during last year's voting and was unaware of these awards.

    Thanks for linking to the 2016 thread, Marc. I was stunned to learn that I actually garnered one vote (H/T to @nads ) for 2016 Rookie of the Year. I know I'm not around as often as I'd like, though I'm proud of my efforts on a few platforms. It was nice to read that @GibGirl garnered site-wide respect for her all-around contributions.

    2017 Contributor of the Year

    Sroka and the entire SIOTS team for exhaustive (nightly) coverage of TG high scores and TG gaming in general covering all players and all platforms.

    2017 Performance of the Year

    KIG666's 4.2 mil one man Gyruss score (mame). This score still baffles me. The first time I saw the score I read it as 1.2 mil and thought that the score was amazing. When watching as the INP replay passed the 1.2 mil mark, I double checked the score to be baffled by it's 4.2 insanity. Played in 2014, submitted in 2017.

    I can't believe I missed out on last year's and I was even nominated (Thanks @Barthax ) much to my surprise. I'll have to keep these in mind for future years when I completely load this place up with games to compete on!

    definitely agree Al Birman is rookie of the year

    I think John McCallister has been a huge contributor, though in an unorthodox way. His resubmissions help increase transparency and his numerous challenges involve him bringing his knowledge of games themselves as well as history to the table. I think John has set a great example.

    (Disclaimers: While they won't count towards the overall voting of these awards, I will list my own Honorable Mention for gamers and performances that I believe should not be left out of the discussion.

    Also, I don't get to adjudicate for MAME submissions because I tried to set it up on my MacBook and couldn't get it going. Therefore, I will probably skip the Arcade/MAME category.)

    2017 Performance of the YearLauren Featherstone: Tapper (Arcade, Points [Marathon])


    Lauren’s record-breaking performance (she beat the previous mark by just under 4 million) was live streamed and caught the attention of local press. Lauren’s appearance on Settle It On The Screen was not only fortuitous (her submission passed adjudication just hours before her appearance) but also fun to watch.


    Honorable MentionMaria Blasucci: Anteater (Arcade, Points)


    Maria broke a TG record that stood for almost 34 years! And like a silent assassin, she completed her mission and then disappeared. (Don’t believe me? Watch her submission. Maria didn’t utter one word.)

    Gamer of the year - (Consoles/PC) - Glen Sampson deserves some consideration here - he's been killing it on the 2600, especially lately.

    Rookie of the Year
    - Gotta be Al Birman, and it isn't close.

    Performance of the Year
    - I agree with Max, Thomas Bauer's one-man Gyruss score on MAME is just bananas...I also had to double-take when I saw that.

    Marc:

    Awesome idea ! Thanks for bringing up this thread.

    I do want to mention that lately I have had less time for gaming because of my work schedule; and that I intend to REALLY make up for it in the second half of November and in December .... (when I do the majority of my gaming).

    "The BEST of my submissions are yet to come folks .............."

    :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
