First of all, really good job on the execution and presentation of the topic, @mZuzek
Was nice to see all the different breakdowns, and that each game in the top 100 was presented with a banner.

I was pleased to see Majora's Mask at #12, before I kept scrolling down, and realized that the entire Top 20 (except SOTC) was nothing but Nintendo games, and 4 other Zelda titles were above Majora, so I was like... oh... T_T

And I'm not sure how this relates to the fanbase of VGCZ vs people who participated, but since I like the effort put into this, I will make sure to try to participate next time.

The top 2 on PS4 being Persona 5 and Nier is pretty accurate to my personal taste though, but there are many big games I haven't played yet.
Suikoden II landed on #43 for PS1 with 1 vote. Since it's my favorite game of all time, I'll make sure it gets one more vote next time. lol

I just need another week or two of playing Smash. After that it's the Suikoden trilogy for me, followed by Wargroove!

Oh yeah, I seem to recall discussing Suikoden 2 with you about a year ago? Glad to hear you will get to it.
It's an old game now, so the gameplay mechanics show their age in some ways. Though it has some mechanics that are still rather unique and interesting to this day. But primarily, I hope you enjoy the story of Suiokoden 2, because it's something that stuck with me all this time. Just remember that each one has a 'true ending' where the requirement always is to recruit all 108 characters. (It can also depend on keeping certain characters alive, even where it seems as if they're supposed to die.)
When you finish it, if you feel like it I'd like to hear what you thought of it.

Technically there were 2 non-Nintendo games in the top 20, with Final Fantasy VII just barely making it in (though right behind Final Fantasy VII there are plenty more). It was actually an "improvement" over last year, where Resident Evil 4 was the only one that made it in, but yeah, it's still not looking very diverse at the moment. I'm glad you wanna be a part of it next year, I'll be sure to try and make it even better than last.

Oh yeah, that's right. And now that you mention it, I think I vaguely recall seeing the results of last year's vote, and thinking "Resident Evil 4 was also on Gamecube".

I have a feeling that if more people voted, Persona 5 and Nier may not retain their top 2 positions on the PS4 list either, although they are my personal top 2.
At least from reading comments on this board over the years, games like God of War seem more popular, or more people played them.

Not sure how you can make it better next year, but I have to admit that it was my own laziness in reading through the rules that made me not participate.
One idea could be to make a video version of say the top 20 with audio snippets of the soundtrack for each game, alongside the text/picture version list you made now, for those who prefer that option, or want to see both. But that music would probably lead to copyright issues on Youtube.
