The previously black/white rules on Remakes was made because it really does open a can of worms on what constitutes as seperate and what doesn't. So for now we'll do this on a case by case basis. If you're not sure if a remake does enough to be considered a separate game, ask me. I'll have the final say (/power abuse).

Luke888 asked a great question about the Pokemon franchise. Not only do they have remakes, but they also have content added third versions. So what do we do with them?

I'm going to say that we continue to treat both the remakes (FireRed/LeafGreen, HeartGold/SoulSilver, OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire) and the third versions (Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, Platinum) in line with the original games.

So for example: Treat the family of Pokmemon Gold/Silver/Crystal/HeartGold/SoulSilver as one entry.

Hope that helps!

I'm in. I've been cultivating my Top 50 for the past year so I could take part in this for once

"We'll toss the dice however they fall,
And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."

I'm more than a little bummed that my list will remain more or less exactly as it was last year. I played a lot of games in 2015, but only one cracked the top 50 :(

I just signing up so Smeags can stalk me and beg me for my list.. Smeags likes it when I not give in right away..


Face the future.. Gamecenter ID: nikkom_nl (oh no he didn't!!) 

Hey Smeags, do you give awards/mentions to games that have unique premises within the contest? I mean persay a new game to the list, or a game that has cracked the top ten every year, or perhaps a developer who has more than 10 games on the list. Or you could go even deeper and give mention to a director who had several games on the list. You can add those games/developers/people to the "VGC Hall of Fame" or something.
