Forums - Gaming Discussion - gamrConnect Presents: Their 1077 Greatest Games - 2017 Edition

Well, not even close to how my list is, but that's pretty much what I expected anyway. Only four games from my top ten are in the top 50, at 25 (The Last of Us), at 27 (Shadow of the Colossus), at 37 (MGS3: Snake Eater, and at 40 (Final Fantasy IX).

In general, on the collective top 10 there are just four games that I even have on my list, and the highest of those was at 24 on mine (Super Mario Bros. 3).

Best thread on the site! Leadified, how long did you slave over this? 

Mnementh and I have got to collude next year. We could have put an Etrian Odyssey in the top ten for 3DS games! We both listed Etrian Odyssey titles as our #2 games of all time. I picked EO4 and he picked EO Untold. If either of us had picked the other one's game it would have topped the 3DS list.

This weekend I spent around 30 or so hours on it, which consisted of doing the results + the thread. I'm not sure how long I spent doing corrections in Excel and making the previous threads, maybe 5-10 hours on top of that? I adopted a more efficient work style this year so I ended up shaving off 10-20 hours compared to last year.

Great job as usual Blue.

I'll find a way to bring Symphonia back to the top 50 this year.

And nice to see Odyssey and BotW high in the list.

I'll try to help next year

Did someone say Nintendo? Anyway, now I definitely don't feel bad anymore for not voting. Wouldn't have made much difference in there.



Great work, Blue. Certainly worth a commendation.



Some games I hope make a leap next year:

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow at #464
Deus Ex at #329
Psychonauts at #288
Tomb Raider (1996) at #277
Demon's Souls at #187 (it looks to be listed as Demon Souls)

Getting a game into the Top 40s and 50s takes as little as 7-10 votes. The important thing here is rank, many games up to the Top 110 also had 7-10 votes but since most of the votes were low-mid rank is why the total ranking was low.

Beyond that it gets much more difficult (BotW had 39 votes and Mario 64 had 36 votes). Along with very high scores: BotW has 18 votes in the Top 5 and SM64 has 7 votes in the Top 5.

I hope my list got counted.

Also, it looks like non-Nintendo fans threw in the towel in 2017. The top 20 is virtually all Nintendo.

Well, Nintendo is only one company. If Nintendo-fans vote for Nintendo games it accumulates more points than if non-Nintendo-fans distribute their votes between many companies and games.

I was very entertained by the top 10 alone: 4 Zeldas, 4 Marios, a Mario Kart, and a Metroid barely squeaking in at #10.  It seems like it's just two franchises that are especially dominating the charts.

Hmm, to be fair, these two franchises get all the resources and heart by Nintendo, that is a reason they tend to nearly always turning out great.

Yeah, let's put more EO love into the event.
