Top 10 20th Century Games - THE RESULTS

Post by OrangeRakoon » Sun Apr 24, 2016 10:48 pm

Image
The definition of "Retro Games" is hard to pin down because what people think of as retro is both dependent on the person and constantly changing with time, which makes a "Favourite Retro Game Ever" vote a little difficult. What we can all agree on is that the 20th century is in the past, and it's now 2016, which makes any game released in the 20th century pretty old.

So here is the vote: Your top 10 favourite games that were first released before the year 2000. First released means anywhere in the world. For example, Pokemon Gold and Silver were released in Europe and North America in 2000, but they were released in Japan in November 1999. That makes them eligible for this vote!

Voting will be open for 1 week (the duration of Retro Week) during which you are free to edit your votes, and then I'll close the thread and count up all the votes at the end before announcing the overall top 10!

Results:
  1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  2. Pokemon Gold/Silver
  3. Super Mario 64
  4. Super Mario World
  5. Banjo-Kazooie
  6. Tetris
  7. Metal Gear Solid
  8. Goldeneye 007
  9. Sonic the Hedgehog 2
  10. Super Mario Kart

Very tough decisions to be made, as I haven't played too many pre-2000 games thinking about it.
  1. Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer
  2. Pokémon Yellow
  3. Crash Bandicoot: Warped
  4. Age of Empires
  5. Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back
  6. Spyro the Dragon
  7. Crash Bandicoot
  8. Super Mario 64
  9. Sonic Adventure
  10. Sonic CD
That seems about right.

6. GoldenEye 007

Really wanted to mention N64 Paper Mario but that's just out of the allowed timeframe - released in 2000. Gaah!

We will actually get to see the Top 10 unlike the FF vote, sorry Ash

Going off the list I put on GNamer ages ago, which has more modern games in it and editing that I end up with this

1. Metal Gear Solid
2. The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
3. Super Mario 64
4. Resident Evil 2
5. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi Island
6. Sonic The Hedgehog Pocket Adventure
7. SoulCalibur
8. Streets of Rage 2
9. Golden Axe 2
10. Crash Bandicoot 3

But now playing Pokemon Yellow agin, I would like to fit a Pokeom in there along with so many N64/PS1 games but to keep it interesting, I'm keeping it how it is the list.

FFIX came out July 2000, that Bix might want to replace that one.

I found the selection process to be surprisingly difficult and, whilst I'm comfortable with my choices, they could well change were I to revisit the list in the future!

01) ISS Pro Evolution (PS1)
02) Championship Manager '93 (Amiga)
03) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)
04) Goal! (Amiga)
05) Mercenary (C64)
06) Spyro The Dragon (PS1)
07) Montezuma's Revenge (C64)
08) Doom (PS1)
09) GoldenEye 007 (N64)
10) International Superstar Soccer 64 (N64)

Man, I had a lot of fun playing those games :-).

5. Mega Man 2
6. Super Mario Bros. 3
7. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I'm quite surprised by the complete absence of Mega Man in everyone else's lists.

The votes have been counted and the results are in! Each game received points depending on where it ranked in each person's votes, with number 1 getting 10 points all the way down to number 10 getting 1 point. If we'd just counted the votes as 1 point each the top 3 would have been exactly the same, but it led to a slightly differing order further down (and much less ties) this way!

Great work on compiling the results, OR! I think each of the games are pretty solid choices, although I'm slightly surprised at Pokemon charting quite so highly. It's a franchise that I've not played before and there must be lots of Poke-fans here in ONM!

What font is is that you used for the screenshot titles, OR? I can see that it matches the main SONM font and I'd like to use it in future drawings. (Thanks!)

It's a shame there weren't more non-Nintendo games (though that's not surprising on here) but even still, I can't complain much about the actual top ten games.
