Forums - Gaming Discussion - gamrConnect's 250 Favorite Games - 2012 Edition

Hello all and welcome to the Results Thread for the 2012 "Your Top 50 Games" Event! During the past two months, 71 (!!!) users from our lovely community here at gamrConnect revealed their 50 favorite games (although games released on November 1st, 2012 or after were not allowed), from November 12th to December 31st. After all of the reveals, hints, and awesome discussion... it was up to me to take these 71 unique lists and create a list of every single game. 1,102 unique games later... I took each and every ranking they gave to each and every game. And after many days of tallying and number crunching, I've come up with the 250 most beloved games for these 71 members... all for you to enjoy!

Now, here comes the disclaimer: This list is not definitive in any way. It's just the combined opinions of 71 unique gamrConnect users. My hope is that this list (and all of our hard work) would not be used as "ammunition" for petty arguments and insults. I would hope that this thread would be a celebration of 250 amazing games so that those who participated (and even those who have not done so) can sit back and enjoy seeing their favorite games in a grand list. So let this thread be lighthearted and fun, full of great discussion about the games we love. That would make my hard work all the more sweeter.

So, with that said, here are the 250 greatest games according to 71 great gamrConnect users. I'd like to thank each and every one of them for participating. Let's hope 2013 is full of more amazing video games.

Cheers. ^_^
