And here are the voting rules and instructions!
- 1. Make a list of ten (or less) games. The number one game will get ten points, the number ten will get one point, you can figure out the math from there. The game with more points gets higher on the list.
- 2. One game per series. This means you can't load your list with the same series over and over. It has to be what you believe is the best of the series. Spin-off games are exempt from this rule.
- 3. If you haven't written about your choices from the nominee cycle, feel free to do that here. If you already have, just the list, I'll see your writing.
- 4. A maximum of three games per genre. If the game is a mix of genres, I'll allow some leeway. I'm not going to heavily enforce this rule, but if I see a list loaded with just JRPGs, I'll just ignore the forth and on JPRGs listed (for example).
- 5. DO NOT PM ME, JUST LEAVE A COMMENT OR POST ON THE FORUM THREAD
My votes will be last as tie-breakers for places that have just too many games in them. That way, we won't have to worry about tie-breaking voting slowing things down.
Deadline is NEXT SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND! I will announce a new update the following day as a last call for writers and send out assignments to the writers we do have. From there, I and the varios other writers who signed up will start preparing the list.
Oh right, what's a writer and how do you become one!
What does a writer do?
More accurately, the writer picks out several games he or she may be interested in writing about when the final list is ready, and I'll keep them in mind for making the list. Once voting is over, I'll be contacting the various writers who showed interest and assign some of them to various games that made the final list (but I won't give out the order). They can also tell me which games they want to write about most.
The one qualification (beyond being a g1) is showing me some of your past work or a new sample of your writing. I won't be accepting just anyone, I need to know you can write a bit so this goes right. I'll be acting as the editor, along with a writer for several games (probably most of them), so don't worry too much about being perfect with punctuation and spelling (lord knows I make mistakes all the time).
How to apply to be a writer for the list
- 1. Now you can PM me, if you wish. Contact me via site or forum PM with a link to past work or a new sample of your work and a list of games nominated here you would like to write about. Use e-mail if you believe you won't be on site during the time after voting (just contact email@example.com).
- 2. By the end of voting, I will contact all those who contacted me via the same methods. I will hand out assignments to everyone I can and give out credit in the final list for each person who wrote a section or more.
However, I'm going to go ahead and reserve a few games for myself (but not Persona 4, I'll give someone else the chance if that game gets on the final list).
- Ape Escape 3
- Devil May Cry 3
- GOD HAND
- Odin Sphere
Those are the games I definitely want to write about. However, everything else is fair game!
This is the final week for voting, so make your voice heard! On future updates, I will allow late submissions for words on the games you nominated, voted on or just want to talk about positively. Get on it and make your voice heard, or don't complain!

While there is a ton of great games the only one I feel the need to vote for is Dark Cloud 2. It is one of the few great PS2 games that is solely PS2, the Persona and FF games seeing revamps on other systems. Command Mission being on the Gamecube. And so on. Dark Cloud 2 was atrue dungeon crawling JRPG and deserves its seat at the top of best PS2 games.
