Game of the Month
Game of the Month is an honor awarded each month to the most deserving game of a respective month, though exceptions have been made for games just barely outside of the month it has been awarded. This is usually a fangame released on the mainsite.
Each month, one game is given special attention as the Game of the Month to increase its traffic and recognition. A brief review is written, usually by the site staff, complete with a screenshot and a banner, and made available on both the main side and forums.
For years, MFGG staff and members had discussed adding a Game of the Month badge, until Supernova designed a badge on March 4, 2012. This badge is unique in that its recipients are chosen by MFGG staff (since 2010, usually VinnyVideo) instead of a community vote, as with competitions or MFGG Awards.
