RULES:

Overview:

• November 12th will be the 50th day before the end of 2018.

 • Starting on November 12th, you will begin to post your all time top 50 Games. This includes games on ALL systems (mobile, PC, console, handheld, anything) and ALL generations.
• For each day that passes, you will post one more game, for example:
• On the 50th Day (November 12th) you will post your 50th favorite game. 
• On the 49th Day (November 13th) you will post your 49th favorite game, etc.

• Your final and favorite game of all time should be posted on December 31st, the last day of the year.

What games can you pick?

• Games that release after October 31, 2018 will not be allowed. 
• This means no Just Cause 4, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Darksiders III, Hitman 2, Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee and so on.

• Please do not add Game Collections, Compilations, and the like.
• Games like Metroid Prime: Trilogy, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, The Orange Box, etc. will not be allowed.
• Please choose single, stand alone games for your Top 50.

• Remakes, Remasters, and the like are fine to put into your list.
• However, when possible, remasters and most remakes should be included with the original game.
• For Example, you cannot enter "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)" and "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS)" as separate entries into your list.
• Please enter it as the following instead: "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64/3DS)".
• If a remake offers enough unique content to separate itself from its older title (prominent examples include Resident Evil (GC) and Metroid: Samus Returns), then it can be counted as a stand alone game.
• This works on a game by game basis. If you're not sure on whether a remake does enough to be counted as a separate game, ask me!

• Game Expansions and DLC Content should be included with the original game.
• Example: StarCraft: Brood War should be included with StarCraft as one entry.
• Example: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows or Specter of Torment content should be included with Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove as one entry.

• Fan Games are allowed but mods are not.
• Example: AM2R will be accepted but the Project M mod for Super Smash Bros. Brawl will not be.

Making your list (and checking it twice!):

• On November 10th (two days before we begin), I will create the Official Thread, where you will post your empty list.
YOU WILL ONLY POST ONCE in the official thread. This will be your one personal post where you will edit your list daily.
• I repeat, you will ONLY POST ONCE.

• Each day you will add one more game to your post, going from your 50th favorite game (November 12th) to your #1 favorite game (December 31st).
• Remember, descending order.

• Don't worry if you miss a day or even a week. If you do, all you need to do is post the appropriate number of games in your list to catch up with the rest of us.
• For example, if you're seven days behind, just add the seven missing games to catch up.

Please include the platforms(s) that you played the game on, and only the ones you've played on!
• Example: Ninjabread Man (Wii), or for multiple consoles: Okami (PlayStation 2/Wii/Xbox One)

• Reboots often have the same name as the original game, if you include a reboot in your list please make that clear.
• Example: Doom (Reboot) (PC), Doom (Original) (PC)
• You can also specify the game by year of release instead of "Reboot/Original".

• For your list in the Official Thread, please DO NOT include any descriptions or images. Keep your list clean, concise, and to the point.
• We'll have a Discussion Thread where you can discuss your favorite games all you want. Please post your images, descriptions and links in there.

• It's alright if you have a change of heart and want to change a few games around during your time with this event.
• As long as you make the changes to your list before December 31st, it's perfectly allowed.

• Remember, your ONE POST in the Official Thread is where you'll make your list and edit your games in.

How you can help me out:

Whether you want to go day by day with each game, or even if you don't have the time but still want to submit a list... you can help me out!

I'd really appreciate it if you PM'ed me your entire top 50 list AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. The earlier I have it, the earlier I can get to work for the celebration event!
• HOWEVER: The list you send me is the list I'll use. I can work some revisions in, but please keep it reasonable.
• In other words, the list you send me is the FINAL list.

• Again, I'd really appreciate if you sent me a PM of your top 50 list as soon as possible! Thank you!


Questions?

• Either PM me or contact me on my wall. I'll try to get back to you as soon as possible.
