    They did a retrospective of the Genesis's life by year and mentioned what was released. They didn't make picks of the best though. But yeah, I do see how it would be really similar. Hmm, quite a problem! Perhaps we should stick with the "top 50 of all time?"

    Well, if we had to pick between the two I think that best by year is still a good idea. Top 50 (or 100) just has soooooo many problems related to it that it'd be a pain in the neck to try to coordinate.

    I think that if you go by year, and then have some intermingled list of titles afterwards in more of a straight top 50-100, we'd also get a cohesive idea as to what many around here consider the best year of software for the Genesis.

    Of course, you could get some rough idea of that by simply taking a head count in the top 50 free of the by year lists, but going in some form of an order like that would provide a more analytical and specified idea as to what was truly the greatest software and year of software instead of having the latter just be part and parcel through implication.

    Hell, a ranking of years after ranking software within a given year could be interesting as well. I think there are many articles that could be done here over the course, and nothing really has to be left out or redundant -- I think it could be suspenseful (geeky?) to have a line of lists that go through all the categories and viewpoints.

    Could have software ranked in its given year first, then after all the years are complete a top 50-100, and finally a ranking of the Genesis' best years on the whole. It could be very in-depth if all these were used instead of just one.

    I would do top 10 for each year, then do a top 50. That should help remove a lot of the filler titles in order to come up witha comprehensive BEST OF list...

    How about a top 10 of each genre? It can be very unfair to compare a RPG to a sports game to a puzzle to a platformer...

    With no puzzels, sports, or RPGing in it? Damn what an amazing game. Anyway I agree. You have to be fair to each genre or it's not a comprehensive list at all. Comparing a Sports game to an RPG is like comparing a rabbit to a dog.

    They're comparable in deliciousness!

    You don't eat rabbits or dogs, maybe hot dogs, but no ordinary dogs!

    That's not quite accurate, but you get the point. It's like like comparing a video game to a movie. All they will automatically have in common is flashing lights. Otherwise it's a useless comparison.

    My puppy actually hops like a rabbit. So there is SOME comparison.

    Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people's hearts. This conflict has just begun.

    You could make cases of minor comparisons for years. The point remains that it is a pretty narrow comparison to make. And that each genre needs to be represented fairly.
