Gamasutra is reminding its readers of tomorrow's deadline for them to nominate their choice for 'most progressive' first-person shooter for the website's newly devised 'Quantum Leap' awards, for which results will be announced shortly.
All Gamasutra readers are invited to participate in this poll, which will proceed genre by genre through the major game types, starting with teh FPS, and looking for the perfect blend of innovatiion and execution in one game title for that genre.
The concept is to vote for the game that you think 'brought the genre forward' in the biggest way - whether it be an early game which helped define the FPS, or a more recent one which took those core ideas, and changed the FPS into a much more complex and rewarding beast.
Thus, the question, which can be answered at the official Question Of The Week page
until midnight PST on August 25, is: "Which first-person shooter/action title over the entire history of the FPS game do you think has made the biggest 'quantum leap' in the genre, and why?"
As with the previous questions, the best responses will be compiled into an article to be published on the site, and users can either respond publically, with their name and company specifically cited, or anonymize their answers if they wish.
