    This is much like the bracket I had going for the best movie (and biggest jerk contest) threads a while back. Let's let the brilliant people posting here at TFW decide the best video game ever made, using a tournament bracket much like this.

    So to begin, I need nominations. I will organize the bracket and conduct each round of voting. Hopefully, this forum gets enough traffic to build a good bracket.

    You can nominate up to 10 games. You can nominate fewer if you'd like. Whatever you nominate in the 10 spot will get 10 points, whatever you nominate in the 9 spot will get 9 points, etc. etc. Nominations will close next Wednesday night, April 18th. At that time, seeding will be determined based on the total number of points received.

    Any game is eligible, and games on multiple platforms will just count as one, unless there are glaring differences between versions.

    With that said, nominate away!

    I assume this excludes PC games?

    btw, if you don't specify numbers, I'm going to assume the one on the top is the one worth the most nomination points (ie, 10).

    Nah, you've been around for a while Twisty, you're exempt. It's like the elite "Don't have to do a Google search, can just expect answers to be given" crowd.

    I have a pool of about 30 or 40 games that rotate in and out of my top 10 depending on what day it is, so i'll just post an semi arbitary list off the top of my head since most of my actual top 10 will most likely be the first ones to come to mind.

    10 - Street Fighter 2 - Hyper Fighting/Turbo
    9 - Jedi Knight
    8 - Super Mario World
    7 - UFO - Enemy Unknown/X-COM - UFO Defense
    6 - Civilisation 2
    5 - Total Annihilation
    4 - Duke Nukem 3D
    3 - Tie Fighter
    3 - Secret of Monkey Island
    1 - R-Type


    Dark Forces 2 was Jedi Knight (97), Jedi Outcast (02) was the third in the series.

    10- Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
    9- Marvel vs. Capcom II
    8- Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past
    7- Super Mario Bros. 3
    6- Street Fighter Alpha 3
    5- Super Street Fighter II
    4- Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    3- Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire
    2- Tales of Symphonia
    1- Tie Fighter

    OK that was harder than I thought and I'm still not sure if that is the exact order I want them in or if those are my favorite games but that is how I will leave it. I just had to add Tie Fighter to the list after I saw it on yours RabidYak, I forgot just how much I loved that game.
