The SSMB 100

Recommended Posts

THE SSMB 100

The general idea here is to get you, the membership of the SSMB, to compile lists of your Top 25 Videogames and PM them to me (I will only accept PMs!). From these lists, I shall work out The SSMB 100, a comprehensive list of the forum's favourite games!

In the lists, you'll need to have them in order. This thread is for discussion of the whole idea and lists people are working on should they post them.

I'm going to have two different tables when I collect and collate the results. One will use the point scheme that gives 7 points the top game, 5 points for two-five, 4 points for six-ten, 3 points for eleven-fifteen, 2 points for sixteen-twenty and 1 point for twenty-twentyfive. The other will award each game on the lists one point apiece. I'll make Top 100s from each table and post the games exclusive to each list (ie. all the ones not on both lists) on here so people can decide which list they want. I will also build up a third table that is less divisive.

Some stuff about game series':

- The Orange Box isn't one game! Please state either Half Life 2, Portal or Team Fortress.

- Half Life 2 includes Episodes One and Two

- Likewise, expansion packs go with their original games.

- Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow/Gold/Silver/Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/Diamond/Pearl/Platinum all go under the generation of their release: Gen 1 = R/B/Y/FR/LG | Gen 2 = G/S/C/HG/SS | Gen 3: R/S/E | Gen 4: D/P/P

- FIFA, PES, ISS and Sensible Soccer games all go under the same game.

- Rock Band 1 & 2 fall under the one game.

- Guitar Heroes 1, 2 and Legends of Rock will all be under Guitar Hero apart from World Tour which stands alone.

- All Tetris games are lumped together.

- Votes for remakes like Resi on the GC and Twin Snakes will count as a vote for the original.

- Different versions of the same game, e.g. Street Fighter 2, Hyper Fighting, Turbo HD Remix etc, come under the same game name.

The event runs from July 27th until August 7th. Results will be posted on August 9th.

GO!

If successful you may expect the SSMB 100 to cover movies, TV shows and more in the future.

Edit: Okay folks, here it is, as voted by you. I am very proud to present...

Top 1-10 will be Sonic games (not moaning) and we'll be enormously lucky if the whole list will have any PC exclusives (moaning).

Does Sonic 3 & Knuckles count as one game or two?

Sonic 3 is a separate game and Sonic & Knuckles is a separate game so any specific votes will go to the game nominated. For the sake of keeping criticism of my handling of this event to a minimum, and because a lot of people love it more than the two component games individually, S3&K will be considered a full and separate game in itself, but you have to specify S3&K.

If you vote for Sonic 06, please differentiate it from the original title by specifying 06.

I've only had one list in so far, it may be early days yet but come on gang, I know a lot of you love games and it sure would be nice to receive some more entries. We do like our games here, after all. :)

I'm tempted to just stick down every sonic game in order of preference and get it over and done with because it's easier than me listing my favorite top 25 games because no ones ever heard of half of them.

I say we organise a campaign to get Grim Fandango on there. Just one adventure game, dammit! That's all I want (though I'll be voting for at least 3).

I'll join that campaign.

And so does everyone with good taste.

I hope it has at least a couple since if memory serves 18 of my 25 are PC exclusives.

I'll agree with that, but a lot of my favorites are PC games hence i can't be bothered voting for them. I mean Flint was one of the first people i know who've heard of Draken, which was an AMAZING game (sequel was balls and console released)

UPDATE NOTICE: Since I can't work out how to award points to un-ordered entries, I'm afraid I'll have to take them as ordered. Sorry folks! Cake, if you want to re-order yours go ahead, just let me know if you do. Everyone else, be sure to order them.

Nice, I'm totally in this. I'll have to think about it for a day or two to get it right.

And I'm gonna feel limited here - I'm not sure how many games I've even played in my life.

- Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow/Gold/Silver/Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald/Diamond/Pearl/Platinum all go under the same game.

Wait, really? Do you mean all Pokemon of the same generation series are the same game? Or just ALL Pokemon games?

Sent mine in. Yays.

You wait for him to send you a map of the secret location and directions for what to do when you get there...Make sure you bring cash and wear a bathrobe ~

Or you just wait until the results are up XP

Just need to know if you want your list taken in order as you submitted it, Cake, or if you want to re-order in light of the whole 'me being unable to find a way to fairly award points to unordered lists' thing. Other than that, good to see more lists coming in, I've yet to finish mine (it's so hard!), got 108 unique titles submitted thus far and expect to hit 500-odd if things carry on as they are. I'll release the full list of nominees after the others, possibly.

Lol my list stays in order for the top 4-5 or so and then clusterfucks into a random stream-of-consciousness mess that vaguely tries to keep things somehow in line but ultimately fails. Never really enjoyed making gigantic top lists but hey, gotta get some representation of awesome games in the thing...

I do find it kinda weird though that the Pok

Hmmm... that does make some degree of sense. In reference to the primary RPG series, could people specify by generation:

Gen 1: R/B/Y/FR/LG

Gen 2: G/S/C/HG/SS

Gen 3: R/S/E

Gen 4: D/P/P

I'll need those who have submitted Pokemon in their lists to clarify the generation. :)

Rather an interesting Top 10 is forming now, some expected and a couple of wholly unexpected entries. I'd also like to remind people of certain older games they might be forgetting, like Monkey Island or Day Of The Tentacle, Worms games, RTS classics like Total War and so on. :P
