just wondering why does it have to be bumped all the way up to 30?

To have a round number of Awards.

but why is a round number necessary? What would be wrong with like 27 or 28?

there's nothing wrong with it, i think i said that during the first meeting when expansion was brought up

i'm fine without round numbers, i think people just prefer them (and i do too). like, i would prefer if we could do it in increments of five just because of the evenness, but if we don't have that many good ideas but the ones we do have are well worth it there's nothing wrong with doing something like 27/28

I was under the impression it would make time easier to calculate instead of having the awards end at like something like 8:35/45/55 etc.

Anyways, I'm perfectly fine with the three that Perch has put up so far and if everyone else or a majority agrees, then that gives us 27 awards. If we can somehow think of 3 more good ones (Favorite SM3DL/SM3DW level comes to mind and was suggested in the meeting by a couple of people), that would be fantastic. IF not, then I guess oh well, we'll have to deal with, although I would really like it if we didn't have like 29 awards.

I still am a bit thoughtful about Favorite Luigi Game, seeing there would be only four five real games and two 'parody' games (i.e. Mario game → replace some names and sprites → Luigi game). However, on the other hand, there are only 7 Koopalings in their respective Award.

Spoiler: List (click to show/hide)



In this category we can find some companies of which I assume are mostly second party (along with some rating companies we'll have to filter out). I'm not entirely sure about that though.

^ We agreed that it shouldn't be 2013-14 only, so the first Luigi's Mansion is also eligible.

Still only five though. I would be ok with with the award if we had one or two more, but I'm not sure if there any more good choices?

I don't have any problems with the other three mentioned.
