Although "Biggest Surprise" may be a bit too subjective to be "easily defined" in all cases, I'd say Cataclysm: DDA is earning top spot for that one. What a surprising explosion of votes this year!

I figured it would do well but man it's giving the big dogs like TOME4 and ADOM a run for their money.

It will probably be 'biggest surprise', pretty subjective sure but we'll include any other big surprises that we see.

I wouldn't say it's giving them a run for their money, but I just saw my humble roguelike get 10 votes and I'm floored!

I know KlingonRL is at 6 and I'm bouncing around. People can vote for more than once, I voted for quite a few of the smaller ones.

That always seems to happen to some each year in the dash to compile the lot of it towards the end---maybe next year a better plan would be to do a quarterly compilation and then the sum of the 4 be the grand list as opposed to all at once.

Post the list a week in advance so everyone can see it and add things. Tower of Despair was also not on there.

Is Adom 2 actually a game yet? Or URR? I think they are more like engine/tech projects. Still getting more votes than actual games.

As long as the game is released and runnable it should be fine. It's a way to show support for games that are still in development.

A much bigger problem is cheating. It's obvious there's multiple voting going on in the race between ADOM and ToME. I also watched Noxico get 800 votes in less than two hours this morning, and still rising (it's going up at a rate of about 10 votes per minute). Can't wait 'til it beats out both ADOM and ToME to take the title of "surprise hack of the year".

Yup. Considering the poll's growing profile, it would be nice to have a version much less prone to cheating. A Blogspot poll was fine back in the day when the scope was simpler, but when it's really the only one of its kind out there and multiple games start vying for it as a claim to popularity...

In any case, start saving the stats/results in advance before any others start to get wackier.

I like the developer of that game already. I'm also wondering where you could download some interesting sounding games in the list? I tried to look for 'Peli' from roguebasin, but it was not there. In case you didn't know, 'peli' is finnish and means 'game'.

I wouldn't be so quick to assume it's the developer himself voting his game up.

Peli is a 7DRL. Most of the obscure ones you can find on the 2013 7DRL list, seeing as a big chunk of the list is from this year's 7DRL challenge.

Noxico getting 1000+ votes is just ridiculous (to the point of being funny, IMHO; I'd love to read Andrew's blogpost congratulating Noxico with the victory). Obvious cheating in the poll isn't very impressive, although it could be a problem that random passers-by who consult the poll come away with the impression that some random games are the most important RLs today. Then again, maybe Noxico just has a massive following in some corner of the web that most of us don't know about ;) ;D

Cleaning up the poll a bit for next year is probably a good idea. In addition to making it a bit more cheat proof, it would be nice to see some minor fixes. The light grey font on white background showing the number of votes for each game is very hard to make out, for instance, and the table is formatted such that I have to expand my window to about twice the width of my screen resolution to be able to see the votes, at all.

As always,
