    Two months? That'll hopefully give me enough time to make a list.

    I'm in but when you say narrow it down to 20 for a top 50 list on every platform imaginable and don't think too hard....Oh man I'm going to be here for the next months thinking about the last 40 years of my life lol.

    What I want to know is how long with this top 50 take you to create???

    In, though I'll have a hard time quantifying certain games against each other & may need to revisit old favourites to see if they're as good as I remember.

    Just wanted to refresh this in everyone's minds. Keep thinking over your lists, and we have a month and a half to go. Remember your top 20 games via private message, and include what platform that game is on.

    This sounds fun really, but I'm afraid I'd have a list limited to around nothing later than 2015-ish (if that, maybe) when I was last involved much in current games.

    Don't want to be bogging the thing down missing out on what I'm sure are terrific games since then and so on that deserve recognition.

    I mean, it's probably going to be a dumpster fire if we're doing it for all systems, but Jarrod already did the NES & SNES ones, so it makes a little sense.

    I have a similar question. You can play all three of the most recent Hitman games in Hitman 3 so can I say Hitman 3 for all of them or do I have to be specific?

    4 lists in so far. I'd like more, but will run with whatever gets entered. Please enter one!

    I'll probably have mine in in a couple weeks. Going through games and consoles to narrow down my list.

    It came in at 7 on mine. And that feels a little low. Since I put well over 300 hours on it just last year.

    I managed to pare my list down to 69 from 119 by eliminating the games that I ultimately don't think will make my final cut. I think I'm gonna rank the rest by console and try to sort it out that way.

    Shit's hard. I could easily do like a Top 10 for each platform, but trying to condense them all down to 20, especially with sequels, is rooooough.

    EDIT: And now I have that down to 30 and it's pretty much all guaranteed heartbreak from there

    OK, I have my Top 20 now. Here's everything that I had in my ultimate list that didn't make the final cut:



    It feels weird to have sent in a Top 20 Video Games without a single Mario platformer making the list

    I'm curious if anyone put the old Socrates "educational video system" on their list.

    I thought about going the cheap route and just voting all the HD/Remaster collections for my favorite franchises so I'd have extra slots to play with, but it didn't feel right. Plus, in the end, it only would have really made a difference for one game that got omitted, so I guess it didn't really matter.

    @Eddie Brock How are you handling tallies for games that are cross-platform and don't have unique differences? Like the SNES and Genesis Beavis & Butt-Heads are completely different, but Skyrim is functionally the same on every console. I hope you're taking some liberty in counting all of those votes as one, because I could see that making for a split and bloated list.

    I think that's why you have to distinguish which console it's for. Some people might hate the Super NES version of Beavis and Butthead so why would you count that with the Genesis version? Would you count the Mortal Kombat Super NES and Genesis as the same considering one has sweat which ruined it for those of us who love the blood? You have games that look better on the PC than they do on the console and play differently if you're using the keyboard or a controller.

    Plus, this is an extremely ambitious task. You yourself didn't even have 1 single Super Mario game on your top 20, that's insane to me but look at your list of games you didn't include....A lot of those games are on my list lol.

    I felt crazy cutting a lot of the games I did. Like I said, if this was like one generation or one console family, it would be easier, but when you only have 20 slots to cover ALL games, that's...really hard.

    I could have done the Top 30 and felt a bit more comfortable, but even that was already cutting out a lot of heavy hitters.

    It also doesn't help that I tried not to have sequels in there. I pretty much chose my favorite of each series and stuck with that in most cases.

    My list was basically me going off the top and then going back through all my physical games and games on my Rapsberry Pi (over 5,000 on 20 different consoles). Just a quick glance which reminded me of some of the arcade games I had to include (Spoiler alert, WrestleFest is on there lol)

    I had to include sequels on certain games. Some are just superior but it was tough narrowing down just one console let alone one entry. No Mega Man on my list for this reason, I couldn't decide between 2-4 lol.

    Less than 4 weeks and cross-platform titles will count as one vote.
