    Okay, here's the deal: I want everyone who wants to participate to nominate 20 of your favorite games in two separate lists of 10. The first list will comprise of "modern" games, which I have determined to be any game released on the current and previous generations of consoles or on the PC during that time. The second one will be "classic" games released on any console prior to the Dreamcast or on PC during that time.

    Other than doing two seperate lists, the only other rule I have is that I want it to be twenty exactly, with one game for each spot on your list. I don't want to see lists that look like this:

    New rule: If you're too young to have played any of the classic games or didn't start gaming until you were older, don't worry about a classic list, just extend your modern list to 15.

    You know, stuff like that.

    Ideally, your nominations should look similar to this example:

    Depending on how many nominations there are, I might weed some out by not including games that only got nominated once. Or if there are too few I might not even go through with the tournament at all. I'll just have to see how it goes.

    Brilliant.


    I think I spent more money renting that game than I have spent on my entire current collection. So stoked when it popped up on the xbla

    I'm not going to change this tournament, but next time (if there is a next time) I might do it by series rather than individual games since there are so many sequels in gaming.

    I tried skateboarding once. Broke my foot only ten minutes after trying out my first skateboard. Never again.

    I loved most of the Tony Hawk games too. Pro Skater 1-4 and Underground were the best. Underground 2 was when the franchise started to decay, IMO.

    Underground 2 was my favorite. This one and THPS4. When they tried to do an open world game next, that's when my interest was gone.
