    Also, this is for fun. Right?

    Fun? FUN?

    What place does FUN have in gaming, I ask you?

    How dare you enter this hallowed thread and pollute our loosely defined rankings with entries based on such such a frivolous philosophy! Dare I call you a Silly Goose? I do! Pistols at dawn, sir! :rotate:
    I did the same thing

    Well, firstly, I believe the goal with the nomination list is to include every game, regardless of quality.

    And if that person only managed to play 7 games that year, whether due to time or budget of whatever, then their #7 shitty game is probably worth more to them than my #20 shitty game is to me.

    Also, a game being "trash" or "fucking terrible" isn't outright enough to get met to want to spite it. A game has to truly offend me to the core for me to effectively want it excised from my list.

    Ultimately, looking at the big picture, if a bad game manages to chart significantly high due to enough people listing it as their last game (be it #7 or #20), then I think that game actually deserves to be on the list.

    Idk, I listed what, 14 game? I felt every single one was great in some way and deserved recognition.

    Putting a game on one's list that you didn't like kinda seems against the point? As their number 7 that they hated then ranks above my number 14 which I thought was worth playing?

    And why do bad games deserve to make the list? There's a lot of great games that deserve recognition.

    It seems like the current list is skewed towards people who play small amounts of games as their games naturally get higher rankings?

    I still like the idea of a score/vote system, unless that wouldn't work.

    But...this is all for fun so I'm just spit balling if the hosts decide to make changes. I don't strongly care one way or the other?

    And thanks for all the hard work Mr Grinch and Infidel!

    I'm surprised Fallout 4 charted so high, given the overall positive-but-not-universally-beloved status compared to New Vegas, and the head over heels, flip-the-fuck-out love for Undertale and The Witcher 3

    That's how Borda count works. Not everybody played Undertale or The Witcher 3, but everybody played Fallout 4 - and generally rated it pretty highly. So despite nearly twice the number of people putting Undertale and The Witcher 3 first (33/33 v 14), the ~30% of people who didn't have those games on their list at all pushed Fallout 4 to be the consensus choice.

    The other voting methods break it down in the spoilers, they do a great job showing the shape of the data.

    In hindsight I guess I could have knocked Broken Age and Grow Home from my list but I am in a weird spot with gaming right now. I started Grow Home and Broken Age because they looked interesting and at first they were. If I had only been interested in finishing the games they would have remained mediocre. After I started them I needed to complete them for my trophy completion count. Which I know is weird for some people but that is how I play. Both of them went from mildly interesting to incredibly annoying and frustrating. So if I had stopped with a basic play through they would have been good enough to recommend to other people. However they are fucking awful if you want the completion/platinum trophy.

    A December release probably has something to do with it.

    I was thinking the same thing for Trails of Cold Steel.

    Also sad I missed the window on this. Lifeline would have gotten love from me in the Mobile section.

    Ori and the Blind Forest might be my favorite game that I've ever played, for all of time, so I'm glad to see that at least some other people thought it was cool.
