In the upcoming meeting both A29 and A30 will be finalized with new nominees so why not start up with thinking about those right now? A29 might need some more help, while A30 already stands at 15 nominees, but here's the current standing:

A29 - Favorite Classic Game (N64/GBC and older) (Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Paper Mario, Super Mario Bros. 3)

A30 - Favorite Modern Game (GCN/GBA and newer) (Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Mario Kart Wii, Super Mario 3D Land, Super Paper Mario, New Super Mario Bros U, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, Super Mario 3D World, Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U, Yoshi’s Woolly World, Mario Party 10, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker)

Changes and ideas will be reflected in the Full List.

I separated the classic game writeins for A30 if anyone cares:

O. Super Mario RPG - 9
O. Donkey Kong 64 - 7
O. Super Mario Bros. - 4
O. Yoshi's Island - 4
O. Mario Kart 64 - 3
O. Yoshi's Story - 3
O. Mario Party 2 - 2
O. Super Smash Bros. - 2
O. Diddy Kong Racing - 1
O. Mario Party - 1
O. Mario Party 3 - 1
O. Super Mario All-Stars - 1
O. Wario Land II - 1

I wouldn't support all of these being on the award but it might help.

For Modern drop something to make room for MK8, it's really popular right now and it beat half of the actual nominees last year. Maybe make room for Tropical Freeze and/or Dream Team as well?

Kart Wii, 3D Land and NSMBU can probably be dropped to make room for newer and better games. For Classic, we could add Mario 2, Mario RPG, Kong 64, maybe 6 Golden Coins and one of the Country games?

I dunno about 3D Land but I think NSMBU can safely be dropped. MKWii finished in fifth so I don't know if removing it is a good move, I could understand a swap out between it and 8 but eh I'd be ok with having both on the award personally.

And since I didn't actually show any support for classic, I'll go ahead and say I'd be in favor of adding SMRPG, DK64, SMB1, and Yoshi's Island. I may vote for others later.

out of the classic write-ins from last year, I support:

O. Super Mario RPG - 9
O. Donkey Kong 64 - 7
O. Super Mario Bros. - 4
O. Yoshi's Island - 4
O. Mario Kart 64 - 3
O. Yoshi's Story - 3
O. Mario Party 2 - 2
O. Super Smash Bros. - 2

I also agree with kicking out NSMBU and replacing it with MK8. While MK Wii is another racing game, I feel that it stands out strongly on its own and both can be included in the same award.

yeah agreed with Anton about MKWii, I'd be against cutting it.
