    Default Top 100 Genesis games of all time

    I've been tossing this idea around for a while, but I'm wary of making lists. There's always going to be some controversy regarding which games make the cut and the order they're placed in. I know the Genesis definitely has the software for a top 100, but how to go about it? I was initially thinking of something along the lines of the Genre Spotlight articles, in regards to format, but I'm not sure. I'd appreciate feedback on this, and having the Sega-16 community come together to make the list with me would be great. I'd really like to make reader interaction a big part of the site.

    Suggestions are welcome!

    Considering there are roughly 600 Genesis games, I think top 50, would be a better idea. It would also be easier to compile. Top 100 invites too much controversy in my opinion.
    In order to compile it you'd either have to find some software that will allow us to rank games, or I suppose you could have everyone make their own top 50 or 100 list, then see what shows up most.

    There are over 700 games in the US, and probably around 100 that weren't released in the US. If you include CD and 32x games, that brings it to around 1,000 games, maybe a little more. Which begs the question, would this include CD and 32x games, or be strictly stock Genesis?

    Strictly Genesis.

    That would be a very difficult thing to keep track of through polls alone. I think making it mostly user-determined through popular vote would be the best way to go, but I can't think of any non-ugly ways to go about it, besides a complex set of elimination polls maybe based on genre or year or the like.

    There are a variety of ways it could be done. The question is, is it really worth it? I think so. :P

    I'd want it to be a serious, objective list and not one with games that just look cool. We'd have to really analyze games in series too. For example, which Shinobi or Sonic really deserves to make the cut.

    I don't really know. But if you had a list of the top 300 games or so and you had them all in a pole of some sort, in which we could rank them one through 100. Then each rank is given a point value. For example a rank of 100 is given 1 and a rank of 1 is given 100. Then either a program, or a person counting manually adds up the total points for each game and assigns it an overall rank, which is used for our final rank.

    I think the simplest way to do this would be one step at a time. First we'd need to seperate the games by genre and pick the strongest titles of each, then we'd have to cut or add to get the list to 100, and finally we'd have to have polls to decide the order of the games. In any case it's not going to be easy and I agree that 50 is a more managable number since we're only doing one console.

    There's no way to do it without a little bloodshed.

    How about we just divide the project by like 8 people, collectively make a top 20, and then each writer individually chooses 10 games?

    You'd have to do it one at a time to make sure people don't pick nearly the same twenty games for their lists.

    By year and then go from there might be one way.

    That'd make an interesting multi-installment feature. Doing the best by year would be something that would be more interesting than just the standard top 50 or 100 list.

    It'd be a lot more reasonable to do a best games feature that way, I agree.
