So we have gotten through Round 1 of the contest and it was a decent turn out (although I expect there to be more votes from this round onwards).

There were exactly 50 different games that got votes and the two games proceeding to the finals are:

Super Mario Bros. 3 (winner by a landslide) and Super Mario Bros. (Just about squeezed it by 2 points ahead of Zelda).

No room for my boy Alex Kidd :(

So now onto Round 2! Please read the rules carefully before voting.

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 6 - Eighth Gen - Wii U, PS4, Xbox One
Round 7 - Ninth Gen - Xbox Series X/S, PS5, Switch
Round 8 - Special Round 1 - PC Gaming
Round 9 - Special Round 2 - Handheld & Mobile Gaming
Round 10 - Bonus Round - (TBA)

For each round, please list your top 5 games for that generation in list view.
Please do this by Friday 11:59pm GMT
5th = 2 pts, 4th = 4 pts, 3rd = 6 pts, 2nd = 8 pts, 1st = 10 pts.
The top 2 games from each round will go through to the final round.
In the event of a tie, I will need to run a poll for 24hrs.
If you have voted, then changed your vote, please let me know, otherwise I may miss your vote by accident.
I will try to start each new round on the Monday after a vote round has finished.
At the opening post of each round, I will put in the results from the previous round and start the voting of the current round.
Once we have gone through the 10 rounds, I will make a FINAL Round thread where you all can vote for the final 20 nominees.
Then once that voting is done, I will post the top 20 in order from last to first and crown the overall winner.

I know this is probably not the BEST way but I doubt there is a BEST way to do this!

Remember, I have 2 kids, a full time job and in the middle of a house move so there may be times where I miss deadlines or post later than anticipated. Apologies in advance.

I hope this is fun and you guys enjoy it :D

Amazed at the lack of Super Metroid so far. It’s the best game on the system ffs.

Thank you and you should play Zelda. It's phenomenal. I remember I used to keep getting stuck and ringing the Nintendo Hotline for help (too young to know what a 09 number meant for the bill)... then the phone bill came and my parents thought I was ringing porn sites :lol:

1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
2. Super Mario World
3. Street Fighter II Turbo
4. Secret of Mana
5. Sonic The Hedgehog 2

No rules, vote for them if you want. However, if there are multiple updates to the same game then I will count as one game (e.g. Street Fighter 2 to Street Fighter 2 Turbo etc will be classed as Street Fighter 2 Series when I do the final count).

1. Super Mario World
2. Donkey Kong Country
3. Super Bomberman
4. International Superstar Soccer DELUXE!
5. Mario Kart
Here's someone who knows a good game when they see it! Legend.

Anyone not voting for Street Fighter 2 should be banned from talking about games.
I knew I liked you for a reason!

I'm just saying street fighter 2 since they were so many additional games that came out ( I think I mostly played the main game and then new challengers with Fei Long, Dee Jay etc)

EDIT: Replaced NBA Jam for Lion King

As the iterations of Street Fighter 2 were updates and not new games, I am counting them as one game.

Objectively, yes probably it is. But I am still reeling from Double Dragon crashing out in the previous round, so I'm gonna be a bit biased as well.

Then put it in first place, regardless, Moby!
