So now onto Round 9. Please read the rules carefully before voting THE RULES IN THIS ROUND ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TO THE PREVIOUS ROUNDS.

Each Monday, I will set up a new round for the contest.
Each round will represent a different generation of gaming.

The generations are below (BOLDED IS THE CURRENT ROUND FOR THIS THREAD):

Round 1 - Third Gen - NES, Master System, Atari 7800
Round 2 - Fourth Gen - Mega Drive, Neo Geo, SNES
Round 3 - Fifth Gen - Saturn, PS1, N64
Round 4 - Sixth Gen - Dreamcast, PS2, GameCube, Xbox
Round 5 - Seventh Gen - Xbox 360, PS3, Wii

Round 9 - Bonus Round 1 - (The Exclusives Round)
Round 10 - Bonus Round 2 - (TBA)

For this round, please use the below to cast your votes:

1. Nintendo - (Any game that was exclusive to Nintendo consoles)
2. Sony PlayStation - (Any game that was exclusive to Sony PlayStation consoles)
3. Sega - (Any game that was exclusive to Sega consoles up until Dreamcast. If the game went to other consoles AFTER the Dreamcast generation, then that is fine, the game is still eligible)
4. Xbox - (Any game that was exclusive to Xbox consoles. If the game got a PC release AFTER its Xbox release, then that is fine, the game is still eligible)
5. PC - (Any game that was released on PC first BEFORE being ported over to consoles).

In addition to the above, if a game you selected had ports/releases on handheld consoles, arcades and virtual consoles, then the game is still eligible.
5 games are going through this round.
I will not cross check every game selected so please make sure you follow the rules.
Please keep the lists in the order above so it's easier for me to tally.
Please make sure you don't vote for games that have already made the finals.
In the event of a tie, I will refer to the games original scores in the previous rounds to determine which wins. If it's still a tie, then I will hold a 24hr poll.
Please tag me if you vote and then edit your vote.
As usual, you have until Friday 11:59pm (gmt) to vote.
Results will be published next Monday.

Enjoy!

Interesting round. So only exclusivity at the moment of initial launch is relevant, right? We'll probably still get a lot of debate over which games should be eligible. I'm going to have a hard time including a Sega game, since I've never owned a Sega system. I might have to cheat a little and find one I played a port of, or leave it blank altogether.

Pretty much yes. It's always difficult because ports end up on other consoles eventually but hopefully the rules are clear enough to make it work :nervous:

If you don't know what SEGA game to vote then do me a solid and throw it to Alex Kidd :lol:

I'm willing to cheat a little bit but not THAT much that I'm going to vote for a game I never played. :lol:

I think you might have to edit your initial post to make it a bit clearer that previous round winners can't be voted for. I missed that as well, but it makes sense of course.

Yes I edited it a few minutes after you posted so hopefully people will check that going forward. And yes... you can vote for Alex Kidd because I'm telling you it was awesome :lol:

Yeah I didn't even notice that tbh. Stick it at the top in bold @Dirty Schwein

If anything this round needs to right the injustice of Ocarina of Time not getting through. C'mon people.

Somewhere in the middle
1. Nintendo - Goldeneye
2. Sony PlayStation - Metal Gear Solid 2
3. Sega - Sonic the hedgehog 2
4. Xbox - Gears of War
5. PC - Doom (OG)

Tough round. Not got a huge history with Nintendo or Xbox so just tagged the best I've played, where they stand on the greatest game list I'm unsure. Easy one for Sega for me, StH2 was so perfect.

Same for PC. CS1.6 was so close but Doom is one of my all time faves.

The Sony one was tough. As a Sony fanboy there is a raft of great games I could have stuck in there and MGS2 is by no means my favourite game, that would go to Uncharted 4 or Skyrim but at the time, MGS2 was a phenomenal piece of software. Strong mentions for Shadow of the Colossus, ICO and TLOU2.

This round is for a bit of fun and get a bit more variety in the finals as it appears that a lot of people here are Sony fanboys. The next round will also be a little like this. These are bonus rounds so just enjoy them :D

As for 8 PC games... remember, PC has been going a LONG time and would be unfair for 2 finalists to cover decades of gaming. Even 8 felt low but it works in rounding up the finals so I've gone with that amount.

1. Nintendo - Goldeneye
2. Sony PlayStation - Metal Gear Solid 2
3. Sega - Sonic the hedgehog 2
4. Xbox - Forza Horizon 4
5. PC - Elder Scrolls V Skyrim

Tough round. Not got a huge history with Nintendo or Xbox so just tagged the best I've played, where they stand on the greatest game list I'm unsure. Easy one for Sega for me, StH2 was so perfect.

Same for PC. CS1.6 was so close but Skyrim is arguably my favourite game of all time.

The Sony one was tough. As a Sony fanboy there is a raft of great games I could have stuck in there and MGS2 is by no means my favourite game, that would go to Uncharted 4 or Skyrim but at the time, MGS2 was a phenomenal piece of software. Strong mentions for Shadow of the Colossus, ICO and TLOU2.
I'm going to be the annoying one here but clearly Forza Horizon 4 and Skyrim are not eligible for this round. Forza Horizon 4 had a simultaneous release on Xbox and PC and Skyrim released on three major platforms at the same time.

Not annoying. Point taken. I'll edit accordingly.

1. Final Fantasy VI (Nintendo)
2. The Last of Us Part II (Playstation)
3. Alex Kidd in Miracle World (Sega) (feck it @Dirty Schwein :lol:)
4. Mass Effect (Xbox)
5. Half-Life (PC)

Mass Effect is only just about eligible since it had a PC release 6 months later, but since it counts it's too good to leave out. I was close to putting Fable II instead, as that's more of a "true" exclusive. Even with all the previous rounds I still found the Nintendo entry tough. Breath of the Wild really deserves to be in the final but I simply had to vote for the greatest JRPG of all time. PC was easy with Half-Life narrowly missing the cut in the last round.

I really couldn't find a game to vote for so why not. :D I actually have the original Shenmue installed on my PS5 at the moment, was planning to play through that soon. So that would've been an actual candidate, even though it's technically not the original exclusive I'll be playing.

1. Nintendo - Super Mario: Odyssey
Not a huge Nintendo fan, only really bothered with the Switch.

2. Sony PlayStation - Final Fantasy X
Really solid entry to the series with a brilliant story. The VA is god awful at points but this only adds to the charm!

3. Sega - Sonic the Hedgehog
Again didn't really bother much with Sega but enjoyed the original Sonic games where you could run fast as feck and do some crazy rolls and jumps and shit.

4. Xbox - Mass Effect
This was later ported to other consoles so hope it's OK but yes, Mass Effect, really cool game and good time sink.

5. PC -
Option 1: GTA: San Andreas Multiplayer
This was only ever released for PC (it was a mod for the original game that opened the game up to multiplayer) - if this is against the rules please see my second option.

Amazing game that I must have sunk hundreds of hours into. People were basically able to take the base game and its assets and create different types of maps and game modes like deathmatch, team deathmatch, racing, sumo wrestling (with cars) etc. The most fun gamemode I played the most was Prison Roleplay which basically was like a multiplayer online prison game where you take the role of a prisoner/guard, some funny shit could occur as people got creative with it and introduced things such as smuggling/corruption/ability to buy your own private cells. Great fun.

Option 2: Civilisation V
Really hard one this as so many titles to choose from and on another day I might go with a different option but yes no game can steal your time away like the Civ series. Great games.

First game I ever played at three years old (!) and every couple of years I pick it up to play through it again. Masterpiece, probably top of my overall list by a long way.

The bolded is already in the finals so you can change it to another. Cheers.

Odd quirk of this round is that Mass Effect could easily get in while the better game, ME2 is ineligible.

Usually the first page of these rounds are littered by people complaining about the games that went through :lol: ... so I assume everyone is happy with the 8 going through from the PC round?

I mean, if you want us PC bods to whinge at you some more, it can be arranged!

I think it helps that a lot of the games that just missed out at least had another game in their series or a related game go through.
