Locked: VGChartz March Madness '15 -- Nominate Your Top Games! *Nominations Are Closed*

Forums - Gaming Discussion - VGChartz March Madness '15 -- Nominate Your Top Games! *Nominations Are Closed*

Welcome to year three of VGChartz March Madness!

It's March, and that means March Madness in the United States. For those unfamiliar with March Madness, it refers to the NCAA Men's basketball championship, a single-elimination tournament that brings together Division 1 basketball teams from all over the country.

Since this is VGChartz, I'm replacing the basketball teams with video games.

Here's the plan:

There are three threads: nomination, tournament, and prediction. In this nomination thread, members can post up to fifty* games they would like to see appear in the tournament. The 64* games that receive the most votes will make the final roster. In the tournament thread, we will vote on a daily basis for each round of the tournament. And in the prediction thread, members can submit their prognostications for the tournament. The member with the most accurate bracket will win, from me, a Steam game of his or her choice, not to exceed $20.

Please post your nominations in this thread. You may post up to fifty (50) games.



tl;dr version: nominate your top 50* games here. The 64* top games enter the tournament. The community votes. You predict the winners. If your bracket wins, you get a $20 game on Steam!

*New this year

50 is a lot though, I'll need a little time to think about this...

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Any game, any era. And you can nominate fewer than 50, too.
