Standings have prize placements now. Hurrah for 3rd place

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/features/cbx_stats

Just gotta wait to be contacted I guess

Congratulations!

Looks like I finished in either 11th or 12th (I remember foxhead84 said he wasn't eligible, not sure about Bane of Despair.) I never imagined that with such a large and complex bracket, the tiebreaker would have come into play, so I didn't spend time on it at all.

I'm kinda curious if the folks who won $50 & $25 gift cards are still required to submit their tax ids along with signed/notarized affidavits.

I wish they would hurry up and do the contest prizes. It looks like the winner hasn't even logged on since the middle of December

I wonder what happens if a prize goes unclaimed (or is refused for whatever reason, e.g. $25 gift card not worth it after taxes and notary fees.)

Theyll definitely send a sysnote/PM and email. I assume if there is no response, theyll probably send a postal letter, as a valid address is required for official entries.

Ive never heard of any unclaimed prizes getting reassigned (and with hundreds of winners over decades I imagine there had to be at least one), so I guess its possible CBS might just pocket the money.

So despite the Switch GotY poll getting better vote totals than the PS4 GotY poll and the GotY going to the Switch game, we're seeing PS4 beating out the Switch in today's System of the Year poll. This is a very unusual result indeed.

The Switch GotY poll getting better vote totals than the PS4 GotY poll would suggest the Switch poll had a stronger overall group of games in its poll compared to the PS4 poll.

PS4 has Spider-Man red dead and GoW.

Those alone had way more votes than smash and whatever else switch had.

Im amazed switch has as many votes as it does. I mean seriously? Its not even close to being system of the year. Last year fair enough. PS4 is the clear winner this year.

Yes, PS4 does have those games, but the vote totals of the PS4 GotY poll suggest otherwise. Simply looking at the PS4 and Switch GotY polls would suggest the PS4 poll had the better overall group of games, but the vote totals suggest otherwise. If that PS4 field was really better what the Switch had, the vote totals of the PS4 poll should have been higher than the Switch poll. What actually happened is the PS4 poll got about 400 votes less than the Switch poll.

I guess those are game specific. Im talking about the final GOTY poll. There were more PS4 games in it. Red dead is multiplats so it counts as well.

Either way its shocking to see this being 50/50.

I mean switch has had a pretty average year. It will be interesting to see how switch does next year when it has no major Zelda/smash or Mario game.

PS4 does have an ownership advantage over the Switch right now. The most recent ownership polls have the PS4 around 69% ownership and the Switch around 58%. I guess this could give the PS4 an advantage in today's poll, but even the PS4's ownership advantage over the Switch couldn't save the PS4 GotY poll from getting less votes than the Switch GotY poll.

The only other reason for today's result is how people are interpreting the poll question. The poll question for System of the Year is a very open-ended question, with no right or wrong way to interpret what the poll is asking you about. Here's 3 potentially viable reasons on how someone decided which option to vote for:

1. Voting for the system you played the most in 2018

Pretty self-explanatory. This makes the most sense as to how someone chose which option to vote for in the poll. If the PS4 actually won today's poll, this is probably why it happened.

2. Voting for the system that is currently your overall favorite right now

Although this does seem similar to the first option, I could see a way in which someone's favorite system wasn't the same system they played the most in 2018. Someone who owns both a PS4 and Switch could be a situation where they spend more time playing games on the PS4 because of the larger overall game library to choose from, but consider the Switch to be their favorite system because it has more of the games they actually love.

Some people also use their PS4 and Switch for totally different purposes, like the PS4 to cover multiplatform releases while the Switch is used for the exclusive games. This could lead to someone accumulating more playtime on the PS4 than the Switch even they don't love the PS4's games as much as the Switch's games. The PS4 is also more likely to have more of the 60+ hour masterpiece games (like RDR2) than a system such as the Switch which is more focused on the Nintendo exclusive games that are generally much quicker to beat. So you might not accumulate as much playtime on Switch compared to PS4 among people who own both systems.

3. Voting for the system that had the strongest game library in 2018

I do see this as the least likely reason for someone to base their vote on, but I could see some people acknowledging the overall strength of a game's library in a given year (2018 in this case) even if they don't own the system. It could be possible for an Xbox One or Switch only owner to go and research the notable games that came out on PS4 and other systems in 2018 and agree that the PS4 had the better games in 2018 even if they don't own a PS4 themselves.

Another thing is that the poll question itself includes the text "BEST OF 2018", which could imply voting for the system that had the best overall game library for that year.

Number 2 is the main reason switch has so many votes. Its clearly the new and hit playform right now. And yeah PS4 does have higher playerbase

Unless you dont own the consoles but choices 1ans 3 should be the reasons to pick your system of th year.

My most played system last year was Xbox one x My fav system is the Xbox one x. But the system I felt had the strongest library was PS4. Most of my playtime on Xbox was with multiplats and BC games.

As for switch. I played for a month at the start of the year when Bayo 2 came out and the last month when smash came out. I barely touched it outside of that apart from replaying last years games here and there.

Technically youre supposed to report it as income, but if GF/CBS did not ask for your tax id, the IRS wouldnt have known about it

Did you have to send in a signed/notarized affidavit?

The one time I won years ago (ironically in a huge multi way tiebreaker which I actually spent time on) I remember I had to provide SSN, though I forgot if it was directly to GF/CNET (at the time) or to the notary. I agree its overkill for a $50 gc; I netted something like $25 afterward, not even enough to fully pay for 1 new video game.

Luster,

You bring up an interesting point. Whenever I see [x] of the Year polls, I always interpret it as (3), because thats how most of the media does it, i.e. the professional critics.

This means for GOTY, I consider all of the ingredients that make up the game, including production values, plot & character development, and game design & innovation. As a result, it may not be the same game I personally enjoyed the most or spent the most time playing. Similarly, professional critics dont automatically award GOTY to the game with the highest review score.

As for System of the Year, its the console with the strongest library. Exclusives count a bit more, but mostly, its about accessibility to the broadest variety of high quality games.

I suppose 1 and 2 are possible ways to interpret the question, but its a rather juvenile way of looking at things.

Given how weak this month is besides KH3 and RE2, around 50% for KH3 seems about expected.

Poll updates and trend charts for the 3-way and 1v1 GotY polls:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17hoT3q7uhwz4siwbJN3oaLGPoiPpgpc7aX5XBvzZUX4/pub

Trend chart for the 3-way poll:

Time | GoW | Red Dead 2 | SSBU | Votes | Demographic
EBV | 29.81% | 16.77% | 53.42% | 161 | (0:00-0:05)
PHV | 30.05% | 19.62% | 50.33% | 1065 | (0:00-1:00)
FNV | 34.62% | 20.28% | 45.10% | 2441 | (1:00-6:00)
BSV | 34.41% | 22.74% | 42.85% | 1517 | (6:00-9:00)
DSV | 35.23% | 21.97% | 42.81% | 2836 | (9:00-14:30)
ASV | 33.25% | 23.41% | 43.34% | 2704 | (14:30-22:00)
SNV | 35.21% | 19.07% | 45.72% | 514 | (22:00-24:00)

God of War and RDR2 both have a terrible early vote. God of War does best at night and during the morning vote, but it does drop off during the day vote before getting a boost during the SNV again. RDR2's trends are a bit different from God of War, since it does only slightly better during the night vote compared to the Power Hour. RDR2 has a good moring vote and an even better day vote.

SSBU has a very strong early vote and Power Hour, then drops off hard during the night vote and performs worst during the morning and day vote. SSBU does perform better during the SNV, but it still doesn't come close to the Power Hour.

Trend chart for the 1v1 poll:

Time | GoW | SSBU | Votes | Demographic
EBV | 33.11% | 66.89% | 148 | (0:00-0:05)
PHV | 43.58% | 56.42% | 966 | (0:00-1:00)
FNV | 46.39% | 53.61% | 2272 | (1:00-6:00)
BSV | 46.99% | 53.01% | 1281 | (6:00-9:00)
DSV | 45.46% | 54.54% | 2633 | (9:00-14:30)
ASV | 45.49% | 54.51% | 2449 | (14:30-22:00)
SNV | 45.02% | 54.98% | 462 | (22:00-24:00)

SSBU again has a very strong early vote, but it lost nearly 7% on the second update of the poll before losing almost another 4% before the end of the Power Hour. SSBU performs worst during the night vote and early morning vote. God of War even managed to win 2 hours over SSBU overnight and also cut 31 votes off SSBU's lead (314 to 283) during the night vote. It took until 8:00 AM for SSBU to take control of this poll and begin extending its lead over God of War again.

Unlike in the 3-way poll, SSBU actually showed signs of a day vote here, but it still pales in comparison to the Power Hour. This poll happened on a weekend, which could explain the difference in trends between the 3-way and 1v1 polls. The day vote on the weekend starts in the morning. Another important element that fewer people work on the weekend (at least those with full time jobs), so the usual morning vote on the weekend doesn't resemble the weekday morning vote which contains a lot of older voters who have full time jobs. The presence of RDR2 in the could have also hurt SSBU's morning and day vote in the 3-way poll as RDR2 had a good morning and day vote.

Head to head results between God of War / Red Dead Redemption 2 / Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from the 3 main GotY polls:

SSBU vs. God of War (9-way poll) - 56.54%
SSBU vs. God of War (3-way poll) - 56.58%
SSBU vs. God of War (1v1 poll) - 54.33%
God of War vs. RDR2 (9-way poll) - 56.56%
God of War vs. RDR2 (3-way poll) - 61.05%
SSBU vs. RDR2 (9-way poll) - 62.88%
SSBU vs. RDR2 (3-way poll) - 67.13%

Even though God of War was largely consistent against SSBU in the 9-way and 3-way polls, RDR2 was not consistent between those 2 polls. RDR2 did worse against both God of War and SSBU in the 3-way poll compared to the 1v1 poll. The best explanation for RDR2 getting weaker in the 3-way poll is the anti-vote factor. RDR2 had a far worse early vote in the 9-way poll, and there were only 2 other options someone could vote for if they wanted to anti-vote RDR2 in the 3-way poll (one of which also has a poor early vote). RDR2 only went from 19.68% in the 9-way poll to 21.69% in the 3-way poll. Based on the 9-way poll results, RDR2 should have actually gotten 25.03% instead. I do think the 3-way poll is a better measure of RDR2's strength in a 1v1 poll, especially when anti-votes are an intrinsic part of its strength.

The GTA series is well-known for being anti-voted on this site. The developer of the GTA games is Rockstar. RDR2 is also developed by the same company. It seems likely that all Rockstar games will suffer from anti-votes on this site.

SSBU was pretty consistent on God of War in the 9-way and 3-way poll, but it performed about 2% worse in the 1v1 poll. One possible explanation for this is LFF and this would have been absent from the 1v1 poll. God of War and RDR2 would largely appeal to the same group of gamers.

I feel like it's too simple to just chalk that up as anti-vote.

Going backwards, RDR2 is the only one that "retains" it's 1v1 strength because it has a hardcore fanbase that won't abandon it as easily.

Number 2 is the main reason switch has so many votes. Its clearly the new and hit playform right now. And yeah PS4 does have higher playerbase

Unless you dont own the consoles but choices 1ans 3 should be the reasons to pick your system of th year.


I did run a poll on a different board as to how people decide their vote for System of the Year, and "most played system in 2018" was the most popular reason in how they choose which system to vote for. About half of all voters simply go with their most played system with the other half of voters being evenly split between favorite system right now and the system with the strongest library.

Most played system in 2018 explaining why PS4 won System of the Year makes sense since PS4 has been the winner of the "most played system recently" polls such as these polls:

And now the Switch is losing another poll to the PS4 after losing to the PS4 just 2 days ago.

This must be entirely KH3 voters. PS4's lineup is so weak that Sony won't even show up at E3 this year.

Advokaiser picked Cloud in Guru and rained on my bracket.
At least I finished 20th overall!

It's funny because KH fans are also Nintendo fans. Talk about identity crisis

Does anyone has the rest of Lightning Strikes match analysis? Ulti, me and Tsunami post them on Board 8 and it would be nice to have his as well in all matches.

Interesting...so the recent "most played" poll, from June 2018, had PS4 leading Switch 30-14%. So if half of the voters did it that way, PS4 should have gotten an 16*.5=8% margin in the SOTY poll by this factor alone. It's possible some Switch owners racked up a lot of play time from Smash, but due to its year-end release date, it's quite unlikely.

Definitely tracking today's poll as the trends were pretty interesting back when we had this poll in 2016.

I don't track every poll. Only the polls that are likely to have interesting trends, or polls that are already known for having interesting trends.

The Playstation 4 is just doing it's job like being a console with lots of games and variety.

Nintendo consoles usually suck and the switch doesn't because it has a well received zelda and mario. So naturally it's in the running for one of the best consoles ever.
