Hey guys. Wow, it’s seemed like ages since I’ve posted here. Long time lurker I suppose you could say.
Anyway, over at Blood-Sports.net, we are publishing a feature in the new year titled “The 20 best fighting games of all time”. For the last couple of months, we have been taking votes/nominations from our site visitors to determine which games make the cut and and which ones don’t. So far the responses have been fantastic but there is one demographic we are noticeably missing votes from - you guys, the competitive tournament gamers.
We plan to publish the feature early next year, and votes/nominations for the games will be closing on January 2nd. To prove we are serious about this, up for grabs for anyone who votes is a copy of Soul Calibur III. The winner will be drawn completely at random from all the people who submit votes.
Basically, the top 20 games will be the 20 games that receive the most nominations, with number 1 obviously being the one with the most of all.
There’s a few factors to consider when choosing the games you want to nominate…gameplay, balance, replay value, competitiveness, responsiveness, ingenuity, how it influenced the genre, the “hype” you get while playing it and so on.
Here’s the deal…if you want to be in the running to win the copy of SCIII, visit this page here: http://www.blood-sports.net/promotions/top20.shtml and follow the instructions on the page. If you don’t care about SCIII, but would like to vote anyway, you can simply post your list here in this thread. I’ll be checking it every day for any new posts. Of course you can still do it by following the above link as well.
You don’t need to submit 20 game names either…you can submit 1, or 10, or 20, or even 100 if you can think of that many. So don’t feel as if you are restricted to naming just 20. Remember the 20 games with the most votes overall are the ones that make the list.
Thanks for your time, and we look forward to receiving your nominations for the best 20 fighting games of all time!
