Welcome to the 10th Annual Greatest Games Event! On November 12th, there will be 50 days before the end of the year. To celebrate, we will be posting our 50 favorite games of all time, one game a day until we hit December 31st and post our #1 game of all time!

This thread is for those who have signed up and have created a list of 50 games to post. If you haven't yet signed up then you can sign up right here! Each list will be compiled here in this thread, so good luck, have fun, and enjoy talking all about the games you love!

Please review the rules and guidelines in the thread:

RULES:

Overview:

• November 12th will be the 50th day before the end of 2019.

• Starting on November 12th, you will begin to post your all time top 50 Games. This includes games on ALL systems (mobile, PC, console, handheld, anything) 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.

• Your final and favorite game of all time should be posted on December 31st, the last day of the year.

• Your list will still be accepted if you decide to be a fun-killer and post the whole thing ahead of time. However, it will only be accepted if you post it in the Official Thread or send it to me via PM - if you post the full list anywhere else, it will be discarded and I won't be accepting any further lists from you.


What games can you pick?

• Games that release after October 31, 2019 will not be allowed.
      • This means no Death Stranding, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Pokémon Sword/Shield, Shenmue III, and so on.
      • Luigi's Mansion 3 releases on October 31, so it's allowed.

• Please do not add game collections, compilations, and the like.
      • Games like Metroid Prime: Trilogy, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, The Orange Box, etc. will not be allowed.
      • Please choose single, stand alone games for your Top 50.

• Remakes, Remasters, and the like are fine to put into your list, but:
      • Remasters and most remakes should 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 separate entries into your list.
      • Please enter it as the following: "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64/3DS)".
      • If a remake offers enough unique content to separate itself from its older title (prominent examples include Resident Evil (GC) and Metroid: Samus Returns), then it can be counted as a stand alone game.
      • This works on a game by game basis. If you're not sure on whether a remake does enough to be counted as a separate game, ask me!


• Game Expansions and DLC Content should be included with the original game.
      • Example: StarCraft: Brood War should be included with StarCraft as one entry.
      • Example: Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows or Specter of Torment content should be included with Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove as one entry.

• Fan Games are allowed but mods are not.
      • Example: AM2R will be accepted but the Project M mod for Super Smash Bros. Brawl will not be.


Making your list (and checking it twice!):

• On November 10th (two days before we begin), I will create the Official Thread, where you will post your empty 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 add one more game to your post, 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, just add the seven missing games to catch up.

Please include the platforms(s) that you played the game on, and only the ones you've played on!
      • Example: Ninjabread Man (Wii), or for multiple consoles: Okami (PlayStation 2/Wii/Xbox One)

• Reboots often have the same name as the original game, if you include a reboot in your list please make that clear.
      • Example: Doom (Reboot) (PC), Doom (Original) (PC)
      • You can also specify the game by year of release instead of "Reboot/Original".

• 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. Please post your images, descriptions and links in 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 to 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.


How you can help me out:

Whether you want to go day by day with each game, or even if you don't have the time but still want to submit a list... you can help me out!

I'd really appreciate it if you PM'ed me your entire top 50 list AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. The earlier I have it, the earlier I can get to work for the celebration event!
• HOWEVER: The list you send me is the list I'll use. I can work some revisions in, but please keep it reasonable.
• In other words, the list you send me is the FINAL list.

• Again, I'd really appreciate if you sent me a PM of your top 50 list as soon as possible! Thank you!


Questions?

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

I haven't played many games that released in 2019, but this year I have played plenty of games that were new to me, so, expect to see a somewhat different list! To be honest, I wanna believe my lists are always pretty different from year to year, but this time it feels especially "newer". There was one particularly big change I made last year and was unsure about... it's been a year now, so I've pretty much settled my thoughts on that. Whether I regretted or stood by that change, well, only time will tell! But, before I get into the list, some disclaimers:

PLATFORMS - I'm only listing whatever platforms I've played each game on, or which platform the version I played is original to - I mean, if I played for example a game on the 3DS's Virtual Console, I'll just list whatever platform that game was originally from, because that's the version I played and not one unique to the 3DS.

YEAR - Also, the year I list is always the one from the earliest release, because that's the only thing that makes any sense.

YOY - Most here would know, but just to clarify, "YoY" stands for Year-on-Year, which is how much a game's position changed from last year.

Now, the list!
