Which is it?

Top 20 for me! 100 84.75%
 
Bottom 80 is where it's at! 7 5.93%
 
Why are you ruining my day with math? 5 4.24%
 
See results 6 5.08%
 
Total:118

This hypothetical has been bouncing around in my head for a while now.

Let's say a system supports 100 games. Game 1 is better than 2 is better than 3, and so on. Given the choice, would you rather have the top 20 games OR the bottom 80 games? And why?

Quality over Quantity.
I don't even play video games that often anymore, so i'd rather play a few gems.



Better how? Whether I personally think they are better? In that case easily the top 20.

If it's review scores or something like that I'd choose the bottom 80. More chance of games in genres that I like if there's a a larger amount of them.



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

Top 20. I'm sure the other 80% are on PC anyway. XD



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Quality > Quantity.

So top 20 of course, 20 amazing games can last a long time and give great enjoyment and memories. 80 crappier games I might not even bother touching lol

If this is my personal 100 list, then definitely top 20. If it is the general consensus gamer list, then I would say bottom 80. I enjoy the smaller and more niche genres a bit too much to be loaded with just the critical darlings forever.



In order to not miss out on the best games that are of my preference, I would have to say top 20. If this is purely based on review scores looking back at previous generations top 20 games there are only a handful that I would actually want to play so would I really want to limit myself. It probably wouldn't make that much of a difference, and some of the games I miss out on, I probably wouldn't miss.



Don't ruin the moment

Without seeing the list of games impossible for me to say given subjective tastes.

If I could make my list definitely take the top 20.



Top 10 vs. bottom 90 would be more interesting. However, 20 great games is very good already, and at least one of them is bound to be a timesink (e.g. open world), so there's just no way I'd the bottom 80.
