It is the time of year where we do a list of the favourite games. Last years had some lame Zelda game as the best game ever so lets do something better this time.

Pick your favourite games, rank them and then PM them to me and there's a list. Tiebreaker is based on the number of people who vote for a game so if 7 people vote for Half-Life 2 and 6 people vote for Dark Souls but they both have 50 points then Half-Life 2 wins. Remakes are considered separate games but remasters aren't.

List is of your own criteria - best ever, favourite ever, I don't care but it should be based on your personal quality.

Deadline is next Sunday 9nd April and the list will be going up over Easter weekend 15-16th April.

Vote well. Send them to me in a .csv format is possible. These are your points brackets.

1 = 8 pts
2 - 5 = 7 pts
6 - 10 = 6 pts
11 - 15 = 5 pts
16 - 20 = 4 pts
21 - 25 = 3 pts

Go go go.

Can I send it in an encrypted format and then hide a python script which decrypts it under a rock somewhere and then send the coordinates to the rock by pigeon post? I don't understand excel and I am afraid the list gets into wrong hands.

as far as I'm aware you can't do attachments in PMs.

25 works a out a bit too short if you've been gaming for a long time across loads of systems, had to omit loads of childhood favourites that were objectively shit but seemed great back then as that was all we had but I've narrowed it down anyway.

also I'm not a nintendo fanboy so no zelda, mario or pokemon from me (if list was top 50 nintendo stuff would be there)

you can just select it in excel/pretty much any spreadsheet or database software. it's stripped back format mostly used for transferring data between systems easily (assuming etr asked for .csv just to avoid any file opening/compatibility issues)


like I said though, pretty sure you can't attached but you can just copy paste a table into PM just fine instead and not hit character limit (just did that myself)

I'll make a list when I get home from work. It'll probably be fairly similar to my last one.
THE FORUM UPDATE KILLED THE GRADIENT STAR

Baltimore Orioles: 2014 AL Eastern Division Champions, 2017: 50-54
Baltimore Ravens: 2012 World Champions, 2017: 0-0

Am I the only one who feels like this is counterintuitive? If game A and game B are tied, and fewer people voted for game A, doesn't that mean that game A was ranked higher on average? If 10 people say A is #1 and 16 people say B is 15 and they're both at 80, why does six more middle votes beat out ten #1 votes?

This tbh. A higher average value makes more sense.

I submitted before this this thread was made so i didnt know i was supposed to send a spreadsheet lol. Im on a phone with no excel but i will try soon.


Don't worry matey

Honestly if you submit the list just 1-25 without numbers it will be the easiest way for me to do it just have it in the correct order

Lmao may as well exchange emails if voting needs to be that personal.

No fucking fun is it if you just post all your lists here is there Joshua "I hate fun" Carcia
Not necessarily what I was advocating but tbf if everyone could vote then I doubt anyone would care enough to go through everyone else's list, especially if it had to be exactly 25 games long.

Just put it in there that I love TLOU I'm not sure I can come up with 25 games I like.


EDIT: But I wanna stress that I really, really like that game.
