You accumulate a bigass list, then you just start lopping the fuck out of large parts of it. This is a good way to get a sense of your pool.
Free shit. More free shit.

I've pretty much already mentally lopped off about 95% of it, simply because it's such a fucking mess I don't really feel like sorting through it.
A lot of people ask me, "Kenny Powers, you're a giant superstar. You can get any woman. Have you ever paid for sex?' And the answer is yes, I have. Several times, in fact. And it's actually kinda cool. You can negotiate practically anything and sometimes, even just kind of do stuff in the moment that you never agreed to pay for and it goes by without much argument.

can't keep my peace. you're being a whiny bitch. you complain that no one is contributing and then you complain when people start contributing...what exactly have YOU done to put this tournament together? I'm not saying you haven't done anything, but I haven't SEEN anything. The sole contribution that I have witnessed from you is complaining about other people's suggestions.

So, here's my suggestion. If you want a "short structured list" then shut the fuck up and make one. Because it's obvious that no one is going to be able to help you in any way. Or, if you WILL accept some help and want something specific, then ask for what it is that you want. Because all I can see is people trying to help you, you complaining that they aren't helping you in the way that you want...and then not making it clear what we can do to make this task easier for you.

Bottom line: these people are trying to help you, you could show them a little respect for that.

Yeah....I did that at the outset

ok then, I apologize for that. you have to admit that you have been a bit abrasive on the whole, though.

so, to be clear...what you want is for someone to submit 8 games for a specific system. I know you said to PM, but I'll do mine here if that's ok.

Platform: PC

1. Civilization 2
2. Starcraft
3. Heroes of Might and Magic 3
4. Warcraft 2
5. Diablo 2
6. Halflife 2 (pretty much the only FPS that I enjoyed)
7. Monkey Island 2
8. Baldur's Gate

Damn right I've been abrasive.


The ordered list is nice. It should make things much easier when it comes to the seeding process. Feel free to throw down some others.

They sure as shit don't. Great games, but they aren't among the top 64 ever. Or even top 100.


Yeah, I threw that in there just for you ;)

I originally had those shitty Halo games on there as well, but I didn't want to go overboard with it.

Fuck that. I'm going to make this thing as easy as possible for me.

Do it right or don't do it at all. No one's going to give a shit about the best game not on PC or current-gen console. Open the tournaments up to all systems or it dies. Once you do that, there's no easy way to organize it other than a free-for-all clusterfuck. That's just the way it is.

I am doing it right.

Right and easy happen to be on the same boat in this case. Which is good for me.

Maybe game genre would be a better way to break them down than console?

Haven't seen it yet, of course I haven't read everything, but any list without Super Mario Bros. would be a travesty.

Tetris has to be in there as well. Street Fighter II, Super Metroid, A Link to the Past, Symphony of the Night, and several others.
