      I vote Pokemon Raptor seeing as its the first completed fangame on this forum, has possibly the biggest fanbase and has so many new scripted features and has had so much effort put into it that i think it deserves to win game of the year.

      Congrats on making a great game O.G Duke! :)

        I vote for Pokémon Ryen, as it's one of the games that first attracted me to game-making.
        It also have graphics with a lot of effort put into them, and an awsome gameplay.

        Good luck, SL ;)

          I will vote for Pokemon Raptor. It is the first completed game I have seen here and it is really good. This game and a couple others are the reason I even found RPG Maker. I hope it wins.

            I have to go with pokemon raptor, because it was the game that attracted me to PC and it is the first completed game.

            Vote: "Pokemon Ryen"~!
            Creator: Shinylugia

            Why: Oh why to ask why! How it can be answered in so many ways~! I've played all of the game demos thus far, and while they're all good, from what I've played I feel that a lot of work has been put into Pokemon Ryen. It's not about fanbase, or whether or not it was the first completed game or not. I imagine Ryen has had hours upon hours put into it, simply by the amount of sheer detail, graphical standards, and the plethora of crafty and innovative designs that populate the game throughout!

            I can easily tell that all of these games have had countless hours put into them, and I wish the best of luck to everyone n_n

            Pokemon Raptor. While the other games look good, and are fun, Pokemon Raptor is my favorite. While it doesn't have the beautiful graphics like Pokemon Ryen or Pokemon Uranium, it does have a good story, which is more apparent, since it is complete, and the effort really shows in making this game. This game interested me in the community, and, for now is my favorite game. But it was a tough choice between Ryen and Raptor.

            Of course, there was effort put into all of these games, but my vote, like I said, goes to Raptor.

              I vote for Pokemon Raptor because it is the first completed pokemon fangame. I found the game when surfing in Youtube and it brings me to this community. This game is worth to be the game of the year.

                Alright. Finally the vote is up.
                I'll definitely vote for Pokemon Ryen. ( since I can't vote for my game. XD )
                That's because the game has a beautiful graphics and tile which attracted me.

                Second, I'm the 2nd founder of Pokemon Ryen, so for sure I'll vote for it.

                  My vote goes to Raptor because I've seen most of the development from beginning to end, and I know O.G has put tons of effort into it. It grew from an average fangame to a very enjoyable game.

                    My vote goes to Raptor. The game has a simple yet interesting plot, and flows quite smoothly. It's not confusing and its ideas and features are one of kind! Og can use the simplest of graphics and arrange to in such away to make them really appealing.
                    It was great to be the co-founder for Raptor and part of the team and it's definitely an experience I won't forget.

                    So like I said before my vote goes to Raptor.

                    This is really difficult, but I have to cast my vote for Pokemon Raptor, from what I've played, and the little I got to work on prior to FMP being chosen to finish the language corrections, the story is quite nice, and is simple and enjoyable. :D

                    Suit Up!

                      I'm second in command for my game, does that mean I can vote for that?
                      My vote goes to Pokemon Xenotime, cos, um, I'm making it.
                      But if I can't vote for that, my vote goes to Pokemon Raptor. It's the first completed game and quite simply, I love playing it!

                      Second in command for popular fangame Pokemon XENOTIME.

                        My vote goes to Pokéon Ryen. OG's a great guy and Raptor IS awesome, but this is just from a spriter's point of view - Ryen's tiles and overall graphics are just all beautiful and Ryen is the reason I keep trying to make better and better Tiles. I'm not surprised this has already turned into a two horse race between the two R's - None of the other games can compare.

                            I vote for Pokemon Crystal Rain because it is really nice game and it is in my favourite Johto* region.

                              My vote has to go to Raptor
                              because it was one of the first games i saw here, and after waiting almost a year after coming here was one of the best things I've played.

                                I have updated the votes count.
                                Raptor leads with Ryen in second.
                                While Xenotime is barely leading Crystal Rain.

                                Just to keep things fair, I will not be voting.

                                  It's graphics are simply beautiful. It plays very smoothly, and the dialogue is pretty good. A real fun game to play overall, oh, and mapping is good too.

                                    Pokemon Raptor, since by playing through you can see how much work has been put in, sure it has it's fair share of errors and bugs, but name a game that has been completed and doesn't? On top of that it's awesome, and even though games like Ryen use D/P/Pt graphics, Raptor, with it's third gen graphics, is still on top for me.

                                      I vote for Pokemon Uranium. I don't really think it is the best, but I do think it is a high enough quality for it to be a shame for it to get no votes.

                                          I'll vote for Uranium, because the storyline is great, and it'll feature my stuff.

                                            This is a tough choice but I'll have to choose Pokemon Raptor
                                            not because it it completed but the feel of the game, the
                                            new features and all the hard work put into Raptor by OG Duke
                                            and everyone else.
                                            5 Years on Pokecommunity. Wow. It's not like I'm on like once a year :P
