Hints

#50 - Blue haired protagonist, girl with wings and a tiger are some of the party members.

#48 - Part of Disc 2 is like a visual novel due to lack of development time.

#47 Suplex a train.

#46 The cartridge is transparent.

#50 Breath of Fire IV

So just to be clear, I update my op in the main thread everytime I play eligible games and my rankings change?

I assume that means none of the data will be compiled until after the last date, so the host of this isn't constantly making massive changes to the aggregate list?

You ready your list of 50 games and send them privately to the mzuzek. You update your post in the official thread each day to reveal one game of your list.

I have a list of 50 games but I know I'll think of games I forgot about and should have included.

Also I tried to not repeat the same series repeatedly. I.E more Mario Kart, Animal Crossing and Ratchet & Clank games would easily make my top 50 but I limited myself to not spamming the same series in my list.

Yeah, if I forgot about a game, I may include it next year. I also try to minimize games from the same franchise, but sometimes two games I feel need to be included as each of them is great.

Yeah but what about all the games we will play/beat over the next 50 days that are eligible? We supposed to update the main list if they bump games around on our list?

I would lock your list now and if you really play something that you would put in your top 50 between now and the end of the year just wait for next year to include it, but you can make alterations:

The Official Thread (POST ONLY ONCE) - The 12th Annual Greatest Games Event (vgchartz.com)

"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However, if you sent me your list via PM, please message me again with the new alterations, otherwise I'll be using the outdated list."

My Xbox Series S is my baby. It grew up into an X.

Alright, I finally had some time to think of some hints, so let's start with these.

#50: The asylum thing wasn't quite working, so instead we walled off a part of the city to keep them in instead.

#49: A very angry man becomes slightly less angry and learns to get along with others.

#48: A potato can generate just barely enough power.

#47: The most recent big cross-over punch-up in this series.

#46: Before a new game came out in the series just a while ago, this game from 27 years ago was the last 2D home console entry in the series.

#47 Suplex a train. - Metal Gear Rising Revengeance.

#50 - Good guess. But this is a Playstation 1 Jrpg.

#47 - I guess you do that in more than one game. lol I'm thinking of a SNES game.

Ideally you should really only send me your finished list, it can be confusing to make changes throughout. Most people will finish their list as the event starts, so that they can post a game every day and remain consistent, but if you want to keep your list open to changes over these next two months, it's okay if you want to send me a list only at the very end. Just remember, no games releasing this November or December are eligible.

Great post - love the image collage. When I saw the Guardians image I thought it was the new game and was surprised it wasn't in your top 50 ^^

Thanks. I was originally gonna reuse last year's image template but decided to make a new one and I'm happy with how it turned out, took me a little while. I'm glad the Guardians trap worked on at least one person, but hey, no one said the new game made it in!

Anyways, gonna drop more hints for tomorrow's game. It needs them.

#50 - This game's protagonist enters a group of hackers to try and recover an account that was stolen from him.
Hint 2 - While it has never been named by anyone here, it is a sort-of sequel to a game that has been named in 2016 and 2017.
Hint 3 - Since then, these two games have been released as a collection and ported to more platforms.
Hint 4 - Between all their releases combined, these two are the best-selling games in this franchise, but that isn't saying much.

Edit: hmmm, I'll go ahead and drop one for the next game after that too.

#49 - It's an open-world game made by a really small team.
