SYSTEM WARS VOTES: GREATEST GAME OF THE GENERATION
Welcome to the newest System Wars Votes!
With the seventh generation of gaming coming to a close, and the eighth generation now under way, it is time to stop and look back: what was the greatest game released in the Xbox 360/PS3/Wii era? It's been a good nine years since the first intimations of the 'next' generation (the one we are in right now) were had, and since then, there have been countless masterpieces across systems. But what is the best one of them all?
And how do we go about this? By using the tried, tested, and highly successful System Wars Votes format, of course. System Wars Votes is a community oriented voting format, which we shall use to determine just what game System Wars deemed to be the best of the generation.
Here's how we'll go about it:
In this thread, you name your three favorite games of this generation. Make sure to name them in order. The first game will get 50 points, the second game will get 25 points, the third game will get 15 points. The order you list your choices in is very important, as it will affect the final tallies.
Anything and everything is eligible for this list, but there are the following stipulations:
- All games released on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS, Playstation Portable, and on PC since Half Life 2 (including Haf Life 2 itself) are eligible.
- Both retail and digital games are eligible.
- You must list only three games. If you list less than three, your post will be disqualified. if you list more than three, only the first three games you listed will be considered, in order.
- Re-releases do not count. This includes HD collections, HD remasters, remakes, DS and PSP ports of old JRPGs, and Wii ports of last generation games that were released with motion controls (such as Resident Evil 4). The games must be of this generation.
- All games, major or minor, are eligible for this competition, with one stipulation: any game listed here must have been released in at least two major markets. Any game that released in only one major market will not be considered eligible.
- You can only list one game per franchise. For clarity's sake, Demon's Souls and Dark Souls are considered different franchises, as are Mario and Mario Kart.
- If you edit your post for any reason, make sure to make a list of all the edits you made. Any edited post without an accompanying list of edits will be disqualified.
- You must either be Level 5 or have a post count of 200 to be eligible to vote.
- Voting closes Midnight, July 21 2013 Central Time. Please make sure to get your votes in before then.
Got it? Pretty simple! Let's go then! Start listing your favorite games!
