Forums - Gaming Discussion - The Eighth Annual 50 Greatest Games Event! Sign Up Yall!


On November 12, there will be exactly 50 days until December 31, the last day of the 2017. It went by fast didn't it?

In the past eight years gamrConnect has held an event to let each and every participating member list his/her 50 favourite games of all time and each year has been an excellent time. This event was created by our very own Smeags who hosted the first six events. Even though he's moved on to do other things in life, these threads have become an annual tradition here on our forums and I welcome you all to our eighth event!

For those who don't know, the basic premise of this event is this:

  • On November 12th (50 days left in the year), each participant will post their 50th All-Time favorite game in the upcoming main thread.
  • On November 13th (49 days left in the year), each participant will post their 49th All-Time favorite game in the thread.
  • This will go on until December 31st, where everyone will finally post their #1 favorite game.

Before we start off on November 12th, let's have a sign up thread!

Here's the rules for signing up:

  • Post in here expressing that you would like to participate, or you could PM me if you're too shy.
  • If you are interested, please sign up before November 12th

When I see that you're interested in participating, I'll add your name to the list! Simple!

Also, I shall be posting the Official Thread November 11th, and and we'll all be there to post the next day.

Rules are the same as last year's event but please review them.

Once you've signed up, you're good to go! Make sure to check up on the event threads here:

  • November 12th will be the 50th day before the end of the 2017 year.
  • 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.

What Games Can You Pick?:

  • Games that release after October 31, 2017 will not be allowed.
    • This means no Call of Duty WW2, Star Wars Battlefront 2 (reboot), Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and so on...
  • Please do not add Game Collections, Compilations, and the like.
    • Games like Metroid Prime Trilogy, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Halo: Master Chief Collection, and The Orange Box 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.
    • However, when possible, 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 seperate 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 seperate itself from its older title (Prominent examples include Resident Evil (GCN) and Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA)), 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: Mario Kart 8 DLC content should be included with Mario Kart 8 as one entry.
    • Example: Age of Empires II HD: The African Kingdoms should be included with Age of Empires II 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 11th (the day before we begin), I will create the Official Thread, where you will enter your 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 post one game from your top 50 list. 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, the post the seven games to catch up.
  • Please include the platforms(s) that you played the game on.
    • Example: Ninjabread Man (Wii), or for multiple consoles: Okami (PlayStation 2/Wii)
    • Try to limit this to only 3 platforms at most
  • 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)
  • 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 in 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'm too impatient to receive 3 revisions!
    • 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!


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

"Just for comparison Uncharted 4 was 20x bigger than Splatoon 2. This shows the huge difference between Sony's first-party games and Nintendo's first-party games."
