I think Skyrim could probably get 54+% on God of War reboot like Ultimate did last GOTY, but pretty much anything hokey going on is going to be in Smash's favor so it may need to be cleanly above if it wants to actually win. Double registered voters would swing at least a percent and if it's close nobody's going to successfully rally Elder Scrolls to any notable extent.

FYI, I got the prize email today.

Yep. Amazon gift card.


So no prize claim paperwork / notary / tax id, just Amazon gift card redemption code sent directly through email?

P.S. Seanchan I know it's been a while but just out of curiosity, which character did you pick for match 146? (That was the day you passed me on the rankings)
https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/features/cbx_mybracket


Hmm, don't think it would have been 146, since I didn't get that match correct. I had:
145 - Cloud > Mega Man (points!)
146 - Snake > Samus (no points)
147 - Link > Mario (points!)
148 - Cloud > Snake (points!)
149 - Cloud > Mario (points!)
150 - Link > Cloud (points!)

Given that the board is fairly close to the 5 day purge rate, I think we can get away with bumping the topic every 5 days (we're currently on a 10 purge rate).

Despite this being an ownership poll, it can be used as a playrate poll since the poll provides options for those who have played the game or not.

Good to see KH2's still got it


ME2 also looks amazing in today's poll and seems to prove that it hasn't gotten any weaker after the disaster of Andromeda which put the series in a coma. Which makes Shepard's performance in the last contest look even more bizarre.

There's such a very large number of "2" games to choose from that they can't all be in this poll, so only the most popular games were able to make the cut here.

Half-Life 2 losing to Portal 2
no wonder Gordon looked so abysmal

pretty wretched showing from SMG2 too considering there are no other Nintendo games in the poll.

Red Dead 2 losing to Tony Hawk 2 is pretty fun though.

Nice to see THPS2 in there!

But even when I'm not really a fan of Street Fighter II (I consider its sequels and spin-offs far superior), it's pretty surprising not seeing it here (or MKII), since that's one of the most popular "2"s of all time.

Some other interesting titles to have would be Lufia II, Suikoden II... maybe even Dark Cloud 2? You could make a case with Earthbound by technically being Mother 2.

There are so many potential choices here.

Yeah, the poll is leaning far too heavily towards modern games. The oldest game in that poll was Resident Evil 2, which was released in 1998. It was the only game from the 1990s in the poll.

Personally, I would have kept Dark Souls II and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 out of this poll in favor of more 1990s representation such as Sonic 2 and Street Fighter II.

Thanks to the Let's Go games, Eevee is now a starter Pokemon. So it should actually be 23 starter Pokemon now.

What should I answer? I remember every starter except for the Sinnoh grass starter. What a hindrance.

The results of today's poll are very disappointing. Slightly over half of the site doesn't know any of the starters past the early generations. That's really disappointing for the series as a whole, and is likely a decent proxy for the percentage of the site that hasn't played a Pokemon game after Gen 3.

I still don't quite understand how there are so many people that not only liked but adored the first generation(s), yet they refuse to play the ones that came after them. I know there are the so-called "genwunners", which is a special case, but there's also a handful of people who only got to the second or third gens and that's it.

@LusterSoldier I have played every Pokemon game and some multiple times and I can't even remember most of the starters too.

@Advokaiser The people that do are either stupid or they think that Pokemon is only for kiddies now and since they played the first games when they were kids and now are grown up they refuse to play the newer ones.

I see a lot of people complaining that the series has gotten stale and that's a fair complaint.

What is weird is when they say the new gens are worse than the first one in a gameplay or design sense. Feels like some nostalgia goggles.
