ALTERNATE SCORING METHODS
All explanations courtesy of MCC.
The rankings listed above are based on what was originally intended to be an approximation of Condorcet voting, but which I’m told is actually closer to the Borda count. In my Borda-ish voting method, each vote cast for a game gives that game a certain number of points. If someone ranks a game #1, that game gets 20 points. If they rank it #2, the game gets 19 points. If they rank it #3 the game gets 18 points… and so on. I have a script that checks a couple of alternate ways of ranking the same data, though.

First Past the Post
Only 1st place votes count
  1. Deus Ex (PC, PS2) <2000> (57)
  2. World of Warcraft [Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King] (PC) <2004> (34)
  3. Half-Life 2 [Episodes 1 and 2] (PC, 360) <2004> (34)

    I am dissapointed that Little King's Story is not in there, but I can accept the rule that only the top 30 games of a year are added. Otherwise, pretty good list.

    This is a nomination thread. If you miss a game on the list, you can nominate it here. Unless you have already done that, but I didn't get that impression from your post.

    I did not miss that, I just said that I accepted the rule that only the first 30 of a year get accepted. If a game came below the first 30 places, how much chance would it make against all the games that came above it? All that would do is clutter the list.

    For me it would be something from the Rock Band / Guitar Hero stable but I have no idea which one.

    I mean Rock Band 2 is the best guitar/drums/mic game but man I played the Hell out of GHII.

    Personal preferences and all then I guess, but I for example nominated Risen, and that's now on the list. It came out at 96 something in this year's GOTY poll, now how many votes will that game get in the end? Well, I don't care, it's a great game an belongs on my GOTD list.

    It was my way of saying HL2 is amazing, mainly because it's the reason so many amazing games exist. The L4D games, TF2, CSS, Portal, Garry's Mod, (to a lesser extent, games like Vampire Bloodlines) and a ton of other user made mods. I feel that HL2 was very important to gaming this decade.

    Fine.
    I'm nominating Little King's Story for it, because it will be in my top 10, regardless of whether it stands a chance or not.

    Baldur's Gate 2 had better win, though.

    Joss Whedon got his start in television writing working on Roseanne, without which we wouldn't have Firefly, but this doesn't make Roseanne the show of the decade. If George Lucas hadn't made a ton of money with American Graffiti, we wouldn't have Star Wars or Indiana Jones, but that doesn't make American Graffiti the movie of the decade.*



    *Actually it's an awesome movie but you see my point.

    I think even if we didn't have any Source games, the industry would be a considerable ways from dying out completely.

    Should Gears of War then win because it lead to Mass Effect, Mirror's Edge, Bioshock, Batman:AA and Shadow Complex?

    I hadn't thought of that.

    Gears of War is my game of the decade for the above listed reasons.

    I know that you've been gathering nominations for a while, but only having a day and a half from when this thread started to finalize nominations seems awfully short. And will we have more than 20 slots to vote? I don't know about anyone else, but I couldn't even begin to think about the current generation, much less the whole decade, without at least 50.

    Also, it's kind of odd to have Wolfenstein: Enemy territory on the list instead of Return to Castle Wolfenstein?

    To be fair, I think the nominations list (with all the ones I'm about to add) is incredibly solid as it stands (or will stand when I add another 50 titles that I got PMed, but you're more than welcome to want to throw more esoteric titles on it. :P

    I was considering asking mcc to allow 30 votes instead of the normal 20, due to the size and notoriety of the list. 50 is far too many choices, as it is 1/8 of the list and you have to account for people not wanting to sort a list of 50 titles for 3 hours.

    I expect an incredible discrepancy in the voting results in either case.

    Although not likely in my top 5, I hope to see SSX 3 and Civilization IV do well.

    I will be updating the nominations list to match the GAME (system) [DLC] <Year> format and add all PMed games later this evening, while at work.

    So if it's being done similar to mcc's, then...we have to pick a Top 20?

    Or are we just choosing one?

    Here's the PM I just sent.

    Pac-Man: Championship Edition (360) - 2007
    Titan Quest (PC) [Immortal Throne] - 2006
    Siren (PS1) - 2004
    Defense Grid (PC) - 2008
    Half-Minute Hero (PSP) - 2009
    Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 - 2008

    Pac-Man:CE is there because it's perfect, Siren is there because I can't nominate Siren 2 (only in Europe & Asia), and Half-Minute Hero is there because I really really liked it. The other 3 are there by virtue of being the best their genres currently have to offer (hack & slash RPG, dual stick shmup, and tower defense).

    Mechwarrior 4: Vegance (PC) [Black Knight, Mercenaries] <2000>
    Peggle (Pretty much everything) [Nights] <2007>
    King's Bounty (PC) [Armored Princess] <2008>

    Do games from 2000 count?

    Cause I mean Diablo 2 and the LoD expansion that came out in 2001 have stolen more time from my life then anything else.

    It's still installed on my computer now

    Diablo 2 is on the list, yes
    And man, Sooo many great games in 1999 that just missed the cutoff. Seriously, I think that 99-00 is the best back to back year combo for games

    Voting is going to be so hard. It's like you're asking me to pick a favorites among my children, you monster.
    Spoiler:

    EDIT: Question: Street Fighter III Third Strike was released in arcades in 1999, but the home version of the game was released in the year 2000. If it qualifies then I'd like to nominate it, but it it gets lumped together with the earlier SFIII titles (relesed in '97 for arcades and '99 for Dreamcast) then I'll understand it no being included.
