I suppose I'll try to remember to do it this year. I doubt that I'll be posting one game per day, but I'll try to remember to post my full top 50 list before the deadline.

I'm taking this as a sign up.



Ugh... making this list is hard. Loads of "choke points" with several games I have a hard time ranking above or below each other... it's been particularly hard this year, but to be fair, I do struggle more and more with each passing year.

Um, back to the thread, though. We're in November! Barely more than 10 days to go until the event starts, and we just went past last year's total entrants. I want more, though! So, how to bring people in... well, I guess for now I'll keep letting Mnementh figure that out. It's kinda stagnated the last couple of days, it'd be nice to change that.

Edit: hm, I think I finished it. Gonna give it a while before I'm 100% sure though.

Just rank my top 1 first with infinite points and call it a day.

Every scoring system will have some bias to it, but I wanted to have a way to score that encapsulates when a game that I know has been polished and displays close to perfection (and is therefore enjoyable) vs a game that I know is technically less polished, has more annoyances/bugs but has a setting, environment, art style etc. that speaks more to my personal preferences.

As an example: Assassins Creed: Odyssey vs Red Dead Redemption 2

I played both for the same amount of time, but Red Dead Redemption 2 in nearly every way is a more complete package, right down to the horse riding system and animations through to environmental details, writing and characters. I enjoyed playing through and appreciated the depth and detail, but the setting is completely forgettable to me. Therefore, Odyssey ends up with a lower Initial and Modern Score, but higher average as the I love the ancient Greek setting and the emotional connection is much stronger.

By the same boat, the Initial and Modern scores are tailored to account for the difference in older games. Nearly all PS1/N64 games for instance have aged badly, but were revolutionary for their time.

*shrugs* Okay. Whatever approach makes the most sense to you. Sounds like you have one that's well-thought-out and considered!

For me, when I read a simple instruction to "post your top 50 games", I interpret that as a simple call for a favorites list, not an academic exercise in professional games criticism. That's just me, I guess.

Why do you want your favorite game in last place so much?

Ugh, I need a break. As we at least reached the threshold of last year, the urgency kinda dropped. We should call more people though, when the official thread is going up. And discussion thread. Don't forget to start the discussion thread a few days ahead, so we can start dropping hints and guessing games.

Okay I've figured out my list for this year. I'll drop it in your message box, mZuzek. No peeking though, I don't want you cheating at the guessing game.

Though I feel my list gets easier and easier to guess each passing year as the years start to look alike.

QUESTION 1: I've noticed you can change the background color for tables, which is awesome. I want mine to have a black background with purple borders and text. I've figured out how to make the background black, but I can't figure out how to change the text color to something other than black so people can still see it with that background. How do I make the text purple? Or is that not an option?

QUESTION 2: Hmmm...I can see the black background and purple cell border formatting here in the Edit mode, but not after I click Submit and go back to the actual post. Weird. Am I doing something wrong?
