Congrats mZuzek on compiling this behemoth of a list and thanks again for hosting!

I had a lot of fun writing and reading and guessing.

A worthy #1 and #2 if I might say so myself lol. Surprised former winner Mario 64 is a bit lower now. But more importantly; I was the only voter for Theme Hospital? That’s criminal. *ahem*@Kresnik*ahem*

Unfortunately massive screw up on my part - not that I didn't vote for it, just that I didn't vote at all >.<

Hey, @mZuzek, you misspelled Donut County as Donut Country with an R, like it's a nation or something. Yeesh, you think you'd know since it's about a raccoon!

It doesn't seem to have numbers, swords or explosions. You know we're men, right?

I wouldn't go that far.

(I'm kidding! I'm kidding! Plus there's at least one raccoon among us. Don't murder me!)



That seems like an enormous amount of work done there. Thanks for doing it all.

On a similar note, how about limiting ourselves to games with (let's say) 5 votes or more. On maybe something like 5 total votes, or 3 placements in a top 10 position. I mean, is it really a "greatest game" because one person ranked it number 47 on their list? And, 1130? That seems like about 1000 more games than necessary. With 130 games, it would still be a massive list, and include some strange titles that would lead to much discussion about whether they deserve to be there.

Anyway, I'm not trying to tell anyone what to do, or take anything away from the huge accomplishment by Mzuzek of putting this whole thing together. I'm just saying, it seems like it would be a little easier on both the administrator and the participants in this thread, with little to no loss in value, if it was cut to a more reasonable number.

You know I'm not actually a raccoon, right?

It used to be limited to a smaller number of games in the past, but Leadified started going for the full list and I wanted to keep it that way. It's first and foremost a celebration of the event as a whole, so I think it's cool that everyone can see where the games they've voted for ended up. Obviously you want this to end up looking like a nice and respectable "greatest games" list, but that's more of a bonus than a necessity, in my opinion. From an administrator point of view, it doesn't really change much whether I post 100 or 1000 games here - I have to make the full ranking anyway, from that point on it's just about copy-pasting a spreadsheet. 1130 might be a thousand games more than "necessary"... but this thread is exactly about going way, way farther than necessary.

I just have the avatar and a tired running gag to go by.

It’s all good my friend.

I represented it honorably by putting it at #11 this year.



Gotta say.  Seeing the top 100 list makes me realize that there are still several old school games I want to play.  I'd really like to play Chrono Trigger and Suikoden 2, with Super Metroid and Ocarina of Time going in my maybe column.  At the same time I still own a stack of Switch games I haven't played yet.  I did a lot of retro gaming in 2016-2018, but each year the Switch makes it progressively harder.  There are actually a lot of good modern games coming out now.  Decisions, decisions.

No... no, not really. There shouldn't be any decision to make when you haven't played Super Metroid. Get that fixed, asap.
