g1 Community List on Top 10 2D Platformers - Announcement Blog

10/21/12 2:00pm

Editor's Note: These lists are always a fun read. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

As announced earlier this month, the November Community List will be on 2D Platformers. I decided to split the platformers list into 2D and 3D. This list will focus on the 2D platformers.

My original idea was to do it Franchise-wise, but after much consideration, I have decided on doing the list individual games-wise.

Previous Community Lists:

g1 Community's Top 20 Zelda Bosses!!

g1 Community's Top 15 Zelda Dungeons!!

g1 Community's Top 10 E3 Announcements!!

g1 Community's Top 15 Fighting Franchises!!

g1 Community's Top 10 Hack and Slash Games!!

g1 Community's Top 10 DEATH BATTLES!!

The guidelines:

 

1. How to write/submit your list

- Rank your favourite Platformers from 10 - 1, or 5 - 1, or 3 - 1. How many ever entries you can get. Max 10.

- Sprite-based platformers, Silicon graphics (Donkey Kong Country), and 2.5D (Donkey Kong Country Returns). Any platformer that is played in the 2D perspective is accepted.

- Remember, sites such as Wikipedia are a good source to double check if a certain game is a platformer.

- Talk about each platformer. Tell us what you liked about it, what you disliked, and other aspects of it...etc... (Your reason/justification for each entry on your list)

- You can include images, or videos with your comments/justifications for each entry.

- You can either post your list in the comments below, or PM me it. Though submitting it via PM is the best way to go, but whichever way works best for you. I'm fine with either way.

- Remember not to be too serious, or too worried about the list, just have fun when writing your submission.

- And remember, if you have any questions, or concerns about this list/g1 Community Lists in general, then do not hesitate to ask.

 

2. Self Introductions

Included with your submission, write a short introduction about yourself, in the third person.

In the actual blog, it will look like this:

 

2200

"Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here Text here"

 

3. How I'm going to rank the final completed list.

I will take every list that has been submitted to me and have it go through my excellently crafted point scoring system. What is my point system you ask? Well here's a simple rundown of it:

Number 10 = 1 point

Number 9 = 2 points

Number 8 = 3 points

Number 7 = 4 points

........

Number 2 = 9 points

Number 1 = 10 points

Each entry will get a a number of points depending on where on the list it is placed. All the individual points for an item on the list are added to give the final score that game has received. I then rank them accordingly.

 

4. Look of the blog

This is an example how an entry on the final blog will look like:

 

1. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
Points: 12

2200

Points given to this entry: 10
 

 "Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here Text Here."
