Sign Up Thread
Sign ups are over, but I'll keep this here for easy access to all these threads.

ONLY POST ONCE IN THIS THREAD. Your ONE post should be edited with additional games as the event progresses. If you're interested in joining, please go to the Sign-Up thread before posting here. If you break the rules and post multiple times here, you can and will be moderated. Please read the rules.


Welcome to the 12th 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 final and most favoritest game!

This thread is for those who have signed up and have created a list of 50 games to post. That said, if you post a list here without signing up first, I'll include it anyway. Each list will be compiled here in this thread, so good luck, have fun, and enjoy talking all about the games you love!

Basic rules:

• The Official thread and the Discussion thread will be posted on November 10th.

• In the Official thread, you will ONLY POST ONCE. All other posts should be in the Discussion thread, and your ONE post in the Official thread shall be edited to update your list accordingly.

• Starting on November 12th, you will begin to post your top 50 ever games, one each day:
       • On November 12th, you will post your 50th favorite game.
       • On November 13th, you will post your 49th favorite game.
       • This will continue until December 31st, when you will post your #1 game of all time.

• If this sounds a bit too daunting, you don't need to come here every day, of course! It's totally fine if you have to miss out on a few days. If that happens, just do some catching up and update your list up to the point everyone else's gotten to.

• If you just want to post your top 50 straight away without taking part in the daily interactions, that's okay too, but only if you post the list on the Official thread or message it to me directly. If you post it anywhere else, it won't be accepted.

What games can you pick?


• You can pick any game for any system. It doesn't matter if it's a mobile game, single-player or multiplayer, free-to-play, everything is allowed! ...With a few exceptions as explained below:

• Games that release after October 31st, 2021 will not be allowed.
       • This means no Forza Horizon 5, Shin Megami Tensei V, Battlefield 2042, Halo Infinite, and so on.

• Game collections are also not allowed.
       • This means you can't list something like Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and instead should list each of the games in it separately.

• Fanmade games are allowed, but mods aren't.

• Expansions, DLCs, or anything of the sort will be included with their base game, so you can't list those separately.

• Remakes, remasters, definitive editions, or anything of the sort should also not be listed separately from their original release.
       • However, certain remakes that differ from the original considerably are allowed. This includes, for example, the Resident Evil remakes and the Metroid remakes. This works on a game-by-game basis - if you're unsure about a specific title, ask me!

Things you should do:

• Please include the platforms you've played each game on (and only those you've played on!). Even if it is an exclusive, still list the platform, it helps me out a lot!

• Reboots often have the same names as their originals. If you have one such game on your list, please specify whether it is the reboot or the original, or add information on the release year.

• For your ONE POST in the Official thread, please don't include images or descriptions. Keep your list clean and to the point - if you want to show images or talk about your favorite games at length, the Discussion thread is the place for that.

• Whenever you finish your list, please send it to me via PM as soon as possible! The earlier I have it, the earlier I can start working on the results thread.

• If you change your mind halfway through, it's okay to make alterations to your list, as long as you make them BEFORE December 31st.
       • However, if you sent me your list via PM, please message me again with the new alterations, otherwise I'll be using the outdated list.

If you have any additional questions, send me a message, post on my wall, or mention me in a post. I'll try to get back to you ASAP.

my top 50 games

Around the Network

It's been a weird year for me. I've often felt less motivated than ever before in the life, for many things and that includes games (don't worry, I'm fine!). That isn't to say I didn't play games this year - for my standards, it was actually quite productive so far - but just that I haven't felt a real excitement about the industry as a whole. In recent months, I've been thinking a lot more about what gaming gave me in terms of proper experiences and stories, and less about how good the gameplay is or isn't. In fact, I considered dropping multiplayer-centric games entirely from this year's list, because I find it hard to rank them among those games that offer you a journey, but, I'm keeping them in for now.

As a result of this, there's been more turmoil than usual in my list this year, with quite a few games seeing big drops, and a couple going up significantly too. It's still not too different though, but I feel like this year, more than ever, the list is really based on my current opinion and nothing more. So those games that kept making it in for their significance to a different time of my life, are mostly gone or in the honorable mentions. Anyways, here goes.
