Forums - Gaming Discussion - Your Top 50 Games: 2012 Sign Up Thread

On November 12, there will be exactly 50 days until December 31, the last day of the 2012 year (Did that go by fast or what?!).

If you didn't notice, for the past two years gamrConnect held an event that let each and every participating member list his/her 50 favorite games of all time, and they were a blast! I want to continue this awesome event of ours (let's start an awesome gamrConnect tradition eh?)

For those who don't know, the basic premise of this event is this:

On November 12th (50 days left in the year), each participant will post their 50th All-Time favorite game in the upcoming main thread. On November 13th (49 days left in the year), each participant will post their 49th All-Time favorite game in the thread. This will go on until December 31st, where everyone will finally post their #1 favorite game.

So, before we get started on November 12th, I figured that we can have a sign up page!

Here's the rules for signing up:

  • Post in here expressing that you would like to participate.
  • If you are interested, please try to sign up before November 12th

When I see that you're interested in participating, I'll add your name to the list! Very simple this time around (I'll leave the more complicated stuff for later ^_^).

Also, I shall be posting the Official Thread November 11th, and and we'll all be there to post the next day.

RULES:

Overview:

  • November 12th will be the 50th day before the end of the 2012 year.
  • Starting on November 12th, you will begin to post your All Time Top 50 Games. This includes games on ALL sytems 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. 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?:

  • I'm afraid I won't be allowing games that have been released after October 31st, 2012.
    • This means no Halo 4, Wii U titles, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, or any other game released in November or December of this year. Deal with it. ^_~
  • Please do not add Game Collections, Compilations, and the like.
    • Games like Metroid Prime Trilogy, God of War Collection, and The Orange Box will not be allowed.
    • Please choose single, stand alone games for your Top 50.
  • Remakes are fine to put into your list.
    • However, when possible, remakes whould 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 seperate entries into your list.
    • Please enter it as the following: "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64/3DS)".
  • Game Expansions and DLC Content should be included with the original game.
    • For example, StarCraft: Brood War should be included with StarCraft as one entry.

Making Your List (and Checking it Twice!):

  • On November 11th (the day before we begin), I will create the Official Thread, where you will enter your 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 post one game from your top 50 list. 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, the post the seven games to catch up.
  • Please include the system(s) that you played the game on.
    • Example: Ninjabread Man (Wii), or for multiple consoles: Okami (PlayStation 2/Wii)
  • 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. So save your descriptions, images, and hotlinks for 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 in 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.

Questions?:

  • Either PM me or contact me on my wall. I'll try to get back to you ASAP. ^_^

Ever? Gasp.

I'll play. I made a 25 list before when I was bored. As long as another case of boredom strikes between now and the 12th, I'll be set!

edit: No, not ever.  No 2011 onwards.  Good job I haven't liked many games this year!

edit edit: You changed it.  Now Journey won't feel left out.  Good call.

Welcome aboard.

Don't be too intimidated though, just start from the top (#1 game, since we all know our absolute favorites) and work your way down from there. I find that way easier.



I'll do it and can I assume you mean no games past Oct. 31, 2012?

I'm interested. Count me in!

I made a bet with JoeTheBro on February 19, 2014. I say the 3DS will outsell the PS4 at least one month in 2014, he says the 3DS won't. Whoever is right gets to control the other person's sig for a month.

Check out Ohga Shrugs!

Love and tolerate.

Yeah, sorry about that I just copied and pasted from last year's thread. ^_^

@Salnax
