    Ever watch the Oscars or the Grammys?
    I was thinking, GBAtemp would be the perfect place to hold something like that.
    We could have categories for each system and everyone in the Members group could vote for games. Then, once the voting is over, it could be announced on a tempcast or a news topic, or something.
    Basically, it's a glorified essentials thread that encompasses every console we discuss here.

    So, whadda you think?

    And genre, don't forget about separate genres.

    Hopefully it won't be as predictable as the Oscars or as crappy as the Grammys.

    It could be called the Tempys -- it has a nice ring to it! [​IMG] Problem is, would any game developer acknowledge the Award? (probably not, for obvious reasons [​IMG])

    Not unless it became super popular. Which is very unlikely.

    It wouldn't be extremely popular, but it'll introduce others to games such as 999.

    I like the idea. It would be like GameFAQs competitions without the failure.

    Really? The 5 month block before, during, and after release wasn't enough publicity for 999?

    If someone more well known to Ron posted it, it would (didn't mean that as an insult). Someone like Chaz, .prwler, Protokun, or A Gay Little Catboy.

    I was thinking of Costello or AW, maybe Rydian to "host" it

    Ron is not a household name like Catboy or Rydian, but he is well known and respected enough, and I'm sure the Staff knows about him.

    Doesn't matter anyway, this is a great idea regardless of who the poster is.

    Did you forget to mention Square Enix and Nintendo?
    EDIT: Someone call upon The Catboy?
