Some of the Retronauts episodes I've been on recently (and one we just recorded) have been making me want to do a Top 50 Mac OS games, buuuuuuut I have a feeling that would have it even worse than Star Trek or Mecha in terms of finding enough people who feel like they could make a half-decent list for it...

I've been thinking for a while that Top 50 Pre-CD PC Games would make a great list, where PC includes Macs, Amigas, Commodores, and so forth.

but I'd rather not run it personally

I'd vote for that!

What the heck is a Mario anyway?

That's also not a bad idea though personally I wonder if pre-CD is too restrictive. That only gets you up to, like, early 90s I guess, and I'd lean more towards including late 90s. Maybe Top 50 PC games of the 20th century?

Of course, mine would all be Mac games anyway since that's what I had, and probably most of them would get swamped by well-known Windows stuff. But who knows? Hard to predict what would happen exactly.

Personally, there are very few non-real numbers that are of interest to me, and all of them happen to lie on the unit circle in the complex plane.

The real question here is whether you'll allow numbers in hexadecimal like DEADBEEF.

Thanks.

EDIT: Adjusted. Please note that means the current frontrunner has 24 votes, rather than 25.

I would like to add a vote for VG Soundtracks since Trek looks boned this round anyways and I like video game music.

OK, so just for explicit clarity (though I think it is pretty clear), you mean you are going to reallocate your Star Trek vote to video game soundtracks? OK, done.

EDIT: Nevermind, I see you only expended one vote so far, so reallocation was not necessary. Anyway, done.

Please note this means that as it stands, we are at a tie.

EDIT 2: Now, video game soundtracks is currently in the lead. This is a nailbiter.

Vote soundtracks, people. I want, I need, to see the BeMani BaRoya for all the marbles.

Did we end with a tie? That's what it looks like if the edits in the first post are up to date.

I hope not. I'd hate to have to duel Loki to the death - I have next week booked solid and it'd be awfully inconvenient for me to die today. *checks schedule* How about August?

IIRC, last time we had a tie we just ran 'em both back-to-back.

Honestly at this point they're so close and together so far ahead of the competition I'd almost suggest we do that even if one or the other did win by a point.

Right, I just wasn't sure if the poll-adjustment edits in Johnny's first post were up to date as of the closing.

We could have avoided this if more of you had just voted for the damn numbers entry

Seriously, soundtracks won?

Wtf? We've done that list like 100+ plus times. A videogame music Thunderdome has been in existence on this forum for the better part of a decade.

There is nothing to be gleaned from doing yet another one.

Yep, it's a tie. OK, so it is up to Positronic Brain and Loki to figure out among themselves which one will go first.

Actually, I would prefer to go second - unless Loki objects or his posting schedule pushes my list into September, which is going to be a very, very rough month for me.
