We are going to be recording a year in review show for the spinner is lit podcast. We are looking for everyone's input as to what the best game of 2017 is. The rules are simple.
The title has to be announced, and be shipping during the callender year 2017.

Please help us by participating in the poll. Thank you and happy new year.

All you have to do is look at the top 100 as pinside has pretty much already spoken.

AFMr
DI
AS
TNA
SW

In that order according to the masses. For my personal preference I would go in almost exact opposite order though.

Has POTC shipped? Thought only test/sample games right now?

I did not add afmr. Feel free to add that in as it meets the requirements.

Close enough, test and sample games are shipping so, you can trust jjp will start delivering full production soon. Unlike some of the start ups that keep bringing their prototype games to the same shows for 3-4 years in a row but only ship a handful of incomplete games.

Yeah... I don’t think you can count anything as shipping until customers start receiving games in box. Even then, Stern is pushing the limit by shipping physical games with minimal code.

Dialed in,
Alien,
Jetson
Houdini

Why are they not in the poll?

Dialed in, announced last year, did start shipping this year though. Jersons, really? Houdini, announced last year. Still not shipping, alien, announced what, 3 years ago, a handful of unfinished games shipped. When the startups get their act together then I will include them in a poll. The games on the current list were announced in 2017 and have started shipping in the same callender year.
I will note honorable mention to the other games as they are all deserving of accolades. Yes, even jetsons.

Thank you for your input. We will take it into consideration when recording the show.

How can you say if a game is good or better than another one before it is shipped?
I think you should take in consideration the year of production and not of announcement.

I threw a vote in for Aerosmith even thought that game and Star Wars are the only two games I have played on the poll. I found Star Wars to be fast to the point of feeling unfair and the shots felt boring. Aerosmith feels like a more traditional game. I am also a fan of the band so that may have weaved my vote over.

Fair enough, let me see if I can alter the poll.

It's your poll, but your qualification criteria seems too narrow and your exception(s) too subjective (POTC "close enough"?!) to produce truly fair and accurate results.

Well this thread is already done

#17 2 years ago

Is this a poll for the best Stern released this year?

#18 2 years ago

If JJPOTC is part of the best pins of 2017; we should just go ahead and add Iron Maiden, Elvira, Jurassic world, alic cooper, toy story, and willy wonka

#19 2 years ago

Great topic of discussion...sure to get the pot stirring with us deeply opinionated Pinsiders. A lot of great games were released this year and I was fortunate enough to play each of them. This is the order I came up with:

SW
GOTG
TNA
POTC
AS

Looking forward to the podcast!

I hope the podcast is better than this poll.

AFMr LE. Amazing game!

Half or more of the people voting probably haven't even played the game they are voting for, especially JJP POTC and TNA which makes this kind of a meaningless popularity vote having little to do with which game is actually the best. Dialed In is probably the game of the year and its not even on the list.
