I definitely want to do this but yeah, it's just kind of intimidating. Need to find some time to sit down, looks at lists of games I've played, and remember stuff.

I have a list that needs to be cut down a bit, but I'm sure I'm missing a ton of really great bosses.

Also, there are a lot of games that I remember as having good bosses, but when I looked them up I didn't really remember many of them so I'm skipping them. If this was about 5 or 10 years ago I'd probably have a totally different list.

I know it's a really wide topic. That's part of what I think makes it so fun.

Just make sure to remember Rule #6. There's no penalty for picking the wrong bosses or forgetting a boss.

Let alone the games they occur in.
Are you saying your memory is worse than JBear's? Because he was able to come up with 49 candidates.

I was able to come up with 25 fairly easily and after a bit of thinking but I guess I maybe cheated a little since I started thinking of candidates while the dino and # lists were running.

Yep, these lists are all supposed to be about having fun and sharing. I mean I think a lot of my picks won't even come close to making the 50 but I'm still happy with them. (However, I am kicking myself for remembering a boss / bosses I could have added only after I had decided on my 25. Maybe I could use them as alternates if some of my other choices are rejected.)

Also, I'm still not sure how I'm going to order my candidates. I have some vague ideas for criteria/rules to use but it will probably just come done to comparing them and swapping their places until I get a final order that I am OK with.

But now I have to go and finish my last few blurbs before the great ordering can begin.

Also a reminder, you can revise you list any time before the deadline even if you've already sent it to me.

I mean, don't do this forty times or anything, but if you send me your list and then remember THAT ONE BOSS YOU WON'T SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING IT WASN'T ON THERE you can go ahead and send me an updated list.

I was just thinking I doubt Octo will mind if you post a deadline before Dinos ends.

I could be wrong, but he was pretty okay with Bulgakov going ahead with things.

I've gotta sit down and think about this for a while, but unless something crazy I forgot about comes to mind, #1 is definitely The 5 min Ladder

Unfortunately my blurbs don't fit into a single PM. Is there any other way to get that to you?

Then I can be 40 100% more fine!

...

That's how that works, right?

edit: Blurbs away! (It actually took me 6 PMs for that.)

I turned mine in a few days ago, and it wasn’t as tough as I expected. Once I took a second look at my preliminary list I had a ton of good memories and it was easy to order them & cut a few.

If it helps to jog some memories, I started a Boss Fight thread a while back that got some really good answers!

Time is everyone's final boss but it is a scripted battle.

The field is still pretty wide open at this point. If there's something you really think should be on the list, submit a list and vote for it!

And if there's a boss you think doesn't need your help because everybody is voting for it, well...
