8 times! Wow, I’m old.

Also, people didn’t like Zelda anymore in 2016 but did like The Wind Waker it seems. Sad year. And Knights of the Old Republic not making the overal Top 100 is criminal. I need to advertise more.

Hey, at least the people of 2016 did put A Link Between Worlds at #5!

I got him listed in two separate places, huh? I'm such a genius.

You sure about him having done it 4 times? With the one I missed being 2016, I'm assuming? That year was the weirdest one for me to gather information on, so I had to make assumptions based on the vague information there was.

2011 was also a bit vague with the information Smeags had there, but I suppose there will be far less people coming to talk about that one given how long ago it was.

Either way, there's bound to be inconsistencies and I'm gonna go fixing them as people point them out to me. The only issue is how everyone in the post gets pinged whenever I edit it, which is why I don't want to be editing after each individual mistake is pointed out, I'd rather write them down somewhere and then change it all at once.

Yeah, the first time I took part in this was in 2016. https://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread/222526/the-official-thread-the-greatest-games-event-2016-finish-your-lists/4/. My list from that year is on that page. 

Anyway, this was a great thing to look back on. It's really interesting to see how games have moved around over the years. I need to finish editing my list for this year soon.



This isn't a criticism, because using the votes from every individual list from 10 years' worth of this event would be an absurd amount of work, so can totally understand why you just went with average rank. But using average ranking alone has produced some strange results, like Fire Emblem: Three Houses getting a higher rank (#29) than it achieved in the one year it was available for voting (#30). Same with Smash Bros. Ultimate (#15 but 'only' managing #17 in its first year).

A suggestion for the future to remedy this would be to allocate points to each position each year. For instance, a 100th position would be 1 point, a 1st position 100 points. Add all the points up and rank them from there. Might be some extra work, but I don't think it's much more, if any, than what he did already for this ranking.

What a great way to celebrate! Thanks @mZuzek for compiling this data, ON TOP of the huge amount of data you need to sift through every year for this event. This is truly above and beyond. You rock!



Great thread, I can't imagine all the work that went into it! Go Breath of the Wild, non-stop #1 since release.



Signature goes here!

Wow, this must have been a ton of work! Well i guess i should say thanks for the awesome thread and the mention! I remember compiling my list in 2017, only since it was posted here though. Took me a while but funny enough, just for my own amusement i've actually kept it up to date. So i will try to post in this years' thread.
