In the glorious times of the WiiU, there was a little thing named Miiverse. I happened to like it a lot, for various reasons.
One thing was, that I joined a group of people around the Zen Pinball 2 community, that made regularly tournament for this game. The leader of the pack picked a table and for one week we all tried our best to make an extraordinary high score. In many cases I had a good score and thought I can't top it, but with the additional excitement about the tournament I got new personal bests - and so did others.
The threads were filled with screenshots to proudly present a new score, some drawings members made around it and playful banter. At the end of the week the participants were ranked and the leaderboard updated to include the new tournament.
The community sometimes extended to other games like Mario Kart or Smash, but mostly focused on Zen Pinball. And it was a blast.
These days Nintendo thinks we shouldn't be able to communicate with our friendlist, so this does not work anymore.
But maybe... maybe... we could do something similar here on VGC. There could be a thread for each event, in which people post their results and talk about it. And a central thread that points to the current event and keeps a global leaderboard. It obviously don't need to be restricted to Zen Pinball, and it doesn't need to be restricted to a Nintendo platform.
So, what do you think? Would you be into this? And if yes, which games you wanna play?
