PostThe GRcade Years - Top 50 Games - Results! 10-6
by Dig Dug » Sun Sep 30, 2018 12:07 pm

After counting the votes I can now deliver the results for the top 50 games of the GRcade years. In the end 174 games were voted for.
I was planning to make this a top 25 after counting but I decided to expand to a top 50 (it's actually a top 51 because of ties).
Just so we are clear, if you voted a game as your number 1, then it is on this list by default.

So without further ado here are your first ten games!
52-43
These first ten games are all tied at 10 points either because they were someones favourite or because several people chipped in.
There won't be any write-ups for this first wave as they only just got in.

May I be the first on congratulating you on your efforts. Good work, mate. I look forward to seeing the results over the coming week. :)

Driveclub should be higher, but given its a driving game I'm surprised it even made the list, a real testament to its quality.

Surprised DKTF is that low.

I haven't played any of those but that's hardly surprising.

I thought driving games were quite popular on here? :?


Metro 2033 should be higher.

Horizon deserves much higher placement, I feel, but the nostalgia factor is oh so strong, and there were so many great games released...
Metro getting some recognition. :wub:

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

Has to be expected. There are a lot of great PS4 games so for the most part, people who have played them will vote across a fairly large range. XBO and Nintendo only owners will clearly not vote for them and when they choose from their own platforms there will be a smaller number of great titles from the current gen to choose from which will most likely end up with the best games from those platforms higher up the rankings.

Of course, rose tinted glasses on will result in a few Nintendo relics ranking highly too.

Yes?

Are you saying Photek will have only voted for Xbox games, even the gooseberry fool ones, just to push down PS games? Surely not! :slol:

Added the next 10. I've decided the top 25 is when I will start making extra effort with how the games are presented. As of now there's too many ties.

I don't think I ever got around to voting for anything actually, nonetheless I'm interested to see how it all pans out.

Ghost Trick that low is the first real offence of these awards.

Good job DD! Thus far...

Max Payne 3 - the best Die Hard game ever made.

It had its problems and frustrations, but that bit where you're just walking through Sao Paulo for maybe 15 minutes or so and nothing happens was one of the favourite moments. It's stayed with me ever since I played it.

Forza Horizon 3 made the list thanks to me, so that's one out of my top ten on the list. I'm not counting on many of the others making it, but it'll be interesting to see just what games rank highly.

Ghost Trick was something truly special, wish they'd go back to it and make a sequel.

I think Awakening is my fave FE, only one I've beat :lol:

Thought Link Between Worlds would've been higher.
