The ILG Coint & Plick Awards

The Second Annual Coint & Plick Poll: ILG’s Best Video Games of 2008 – Introduction

Posted in 2008 by trdn89 on February 22, 2010

2008 was a very, very good year for video games.

Coint and Plick offers a peek into the mind of a cross-section of Joe Average gamers; twenty five guys (mostly) and gals from their teens into their forties who still enjoy a good orc rampage/brick busting/mecha flight/historical sim/plastic guitar concert every now and again. The poll was taken in Pazz and Jop style vote/point format: all voters had 100 points to divide among any ten games released in 2008, with each entry receiving no more than 30 points or less than 5 points.

In the end, eighty-six games were nominated. Rather than just peel off the top half, I’ve opted to list everything that got a vote here, along with a few links and YouTubes of note. In case of a tie breaker, I went by number of people who voted for a game first and number of people who listed the game as their #1 of the year second.

Bear in mind that not every voter used the full amount of points they had at their disposal, so the numbers don’t crunch exactly; I _have_ triple-checked the scores tho’.

User comments for these games come from ballots as well as from past ILG posts; I’ve done a bit of editing to streamline but I’ve made every effort to maintain your meaning. My apologies if you feel misquoted; feel free to correct me on this thread.

So, to kick it off: seventeen games tied for 70th place with one vote at 5 points apiece. In no particular order, here they are.
