But there are more Nintendo users on this site than any other fanbase. I remember somebody did a poll a couple years ago and the ranking was Nintendo > Playstation > Xbox > PC. I think Nintendo got like 40% of the vote. Hard for any game to top Zelda in this competition when it has the largest fanbase on the site voting for it.

You are absolutely right about too few of the Xbox and PC fans we do have on the site taking part in these monthly polls. I've been trying to get more Xbox fans to take part by posting reminders in Xbox Empire, but it has only helped a little bit.

You only need to do a bit of effort and look at the results of past months to realize that the userbase isn't relevant, but the number of people that vote do. Final Fantasy VII Remake won in April, March, February, not January when Zelda won, but it won again in December and November, and I haven't looked before.

As I said, it's how many people vote and also the game that matters.

I think we should amend the rules to games coming out in the next 6 months - year. Force people to consider the near future and not games that are 2+ years away.

In that case, 7 of the first 10 games shouldn't be on the list because only Paper Mario, Ghost of Tsushima and Cyberpunk 2077 have release dates.

Just saying the lists will look the same if we count games we know exist but are clearly years away. The emphasis should be on the month itself and near future imo

But a thread to vote for games that are releasing each month already exist, in the form of the weekly poll. Here's the one from July, in case you missed it: https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=242748

Meanwhile, these threads are about the games we're looking forward, without a time limit.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

Oops I mixed em up, thanks.

C'mon, Zelda will be on top for the next 5 years and that's boring.

There are just too many Nintendo fans here on VGC for anything else to win. Even on the combined chart, with Xbox, Playstation, and PC votes for Cyberpunk, it still comes in 11 points short of Zelda. 

Non-Nintendo games have won many times before.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

If you would like, I can create a chart specifically for games with release dates. Would that be something you'd like me to add?

Even better anything with a Q1-4 window. But it should be unanimous I’m just one opinion

I don't have a solution to suggest, I don't know if limiting time is the answer.

We know that non-nintendo games obviously won many times, but having zelda sitting on top 3 for the next 3 years while many other good games are released is kinda silly. Perhaps there's no workaround, we just have to deal with zelda buyers, but it's annoying to see games like Cyberpunk that are complete products competing with long in the future Nintendo games (that's not the first time).



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019
