    Didn't know you could vote more then once. Kinda skews the voting.

    Quoted from dirkdiggler:

    You can only vote once, but there are 32 votes to be made. If the average voter only cast 26 votes that would mean many people withheld voting on games they were not familiar with. That could be a good thing. The other explanation would be people only voted for one game out of 64. That would be a bad thing.

    The vote totals would say there are easily 30-50 troll votes on each match up. Some folks just want to watch the world burn.

    Trolls because they don’t agree with your opinion?

    53 people voting TFTC over JJP Pirates or 30 people voting Indy 500 over MM or 55 people voting Pinball Magic over Iron Maiden. Yes, those are troll votes...

    So just a normal voting system then?

    Shouldn't MM get all of the troll votes?

    I see what you did there.

    Quoted from Reaper802:

    people voting Indy 500 over MM

    I voted for MM, however, I do love my Indy-500

    I didn't vote for some bcuz; I wasn't familiar with them enough to cast a fair vote.

    #113 3 months ago

    id rather play indy 500 than MM

    Thanks a lot . Really enjoying this , great job going to all the effort to organise this .

    Quoted from InfiniteLives:

    id rather play indy 500 than MM

    Me too, it's hilarious to read the ,"that opinion isn't the same as mine, so they must be a troll" posts.

    Like if someone's opinion differs, it can't be legitimate.

    They break up the "I feel like people haven't played the game or they would love it like me" posts.

    If anyone wants to know the actual objectively real top 10 games* of all time just PM me. To be clear this is not my subjective opinion (I actually disagree with most of the games in the list) but a scientifically determined, completely objective evaluation. FYI: I don't like to share this knowledge in public and I do require a NDA before revealing the list to anyone.

    *some people don't consider them to be games, but more like vending machines that you play. I have no opinion on this opinion.

    Does NGG occupy spots # 2&6?

    Guilty as charged...but you're not wrong, so I upvoted.

    Don't forget, "the game people played, obviously wasn't set up properly, like mine" crowd.

    Quoted from Waxx:

    Then Fish Tales received 100% of the votes right?

    Competing isn’t winning, last time I checked. So yeah, FT can compete easily with ANY modern Stern.

    A perfect, tight ruleset with all the trimmings - layout, humor, dots, sounds, music, art, fun - plus basic Williams quality (Versus Stern cost cutting). FT can also WIN in my book any day of the week against your basic Stern. Especially for the $$.

    100%? Of course not. That’s just dumb. So why would you even say that? Oh, I know. You paid $15k for EHoH.

    #124 3 months ago
    Quoted from littlecammi:FT undeservedly topped EHoH.
    We suspect hanging chads on votes from Florida caused EHoH to be undercounted.

    We? Not me. I could buy 5 FT for one EHoH. But to have as much fun I’d only need one. Stop selling that the latest overpriced, overhyped vanity play is better than an all time classic pin. Is EHOH good? Sure. Is it fun? I sure enjoyed it when I played it. But DESERVING of anything? I think not.

    Especially against a classic.

    Just post it or start a new thread. What’s with the dramatic hold out? Or did I miss the joke?

    How are these not in a Top-64 contest?
    I'm guessing we didn't use the "custom" option to clean up the data set! (I just did, and those three clearly show up)
    Hey, there's always next time!

    + Centaur
    + Fathom
    + Taxi

    No Hobbit should get some too.

    Sadly (as its my 2nd fav game) TH went out. I still have 3 more riders tho.
    If MET doesn't win then EVERYONE is a Troll and I'm not listening (Im listening to Lemmy with Metallica)
