Welcome to the New EGL Voting Center

     EGL is a place for prestigious games that have stood the test of time, and this list should continue grow over time as more games revolutionize other games or are just of a high level of quality. EGL voting is open to all soldiers and above for voting and suggesting games as the majority of us should have a decent feel for what a good game is or how a game influenced us.

What is the Criteria for the Game to go Into EGL:

Required:
  • The game must be feature worthy by today's standards.
  • The game must have been out for 3 or more months. (This is to see how it holds up over time)
  • The game should have been exceptional for the time and maintain a high level of quality throughout.
  • The game must take, on average, over 1 minute to complete. (A good game has content AND quality)

Recommended but NEVER Required:
  • The game has a lasting effect on other games (is revolutionary), this reason may not be used for games under 8 months old.
  • The game does something unique. (Do not confuse this with being Revolutionary)
  • The game has well done visuals.

How to suggest games:

To suggest a game please fill out the following and post it in this thread, it should only take you a few minutes:

Name of game:
Why this game is worthy:
Yes: 1
No: 0

Rules for Suggested Games:
  • Previously suggested games may be held for a revote after 4 months past voting.
  • They must fit the required criteria.
  • They should have been released a minimum of 3 months ago
  • There should be no more than 1 game being voted on at one time
  • They must not be your own game


Voting:

     You may vote yes or no to a game, should a game have over 15 votes or over 70% no's after 3 days of voting the game will be denied. If a game has been under voting for 3 days and is at 70% yes then it will be accepted into EGL and the first paragraph submitted will be used for the entry. All voting takes place inside of this thread. No reason is required, however it is highly recommended. Don't be a douche and post no or yes without playing the game. To vote yes or no to a game post:

Game name:
Total Yes:
Total No:
Your Vote:

Vetoing:

     If there is a game that does not meet the criteria for EGL or it was a game that was never voted on (IE: The games Darut added in on his own accord) then you may suggest for a Veto in a similar manner to suggesting a game to be voted on. Note that you may not suggest games added in the past 3 months. The first step is to file a suggestion:

Name of game:
What criteria doesn't this game meet:
Yes to veto: 1
No to veto: 0
Date game was published:


     Once the game has been suggested the game will be voted on. ALL votes must supply a reason (you may quote another user for this). If the voting reaches 20 or more votes it will be removed unless it is at over 50% yes. If the game is over 8 votes and has over 70% no then it will be removed. If the game ever reaches over 70% yes after 8 votes then the voting ends and the game is removed.

GrandQuest|3/29/2013|5-yes 6-no|denied

I'm confused as to why the game has to be out by at least 3 months before being suggested to see "how it holds up over time". I don't see the point, the game isn't going to be changing by itself... if it's unique and presumably EGL worthy why can't someone suggest it before then? lol idk just wondering.

When a game is first released people need a chance to play through it, see how it holds up over time to other similar games, and let that new game smell wash away. Not to mention; one of the best ways to tell if a game is EGL worthy is if you can clearly remember it over that time.

The top winners for each creator will be added to EGL as long as they fill in the requirements for EGL.

So you are saying I have to wait 3 months before allowing for voting when they are already dead set for a chance?

No, they are the exception to the rule and fit under the requirements to be vetod.

GrandQuest by Ravicale
Why? Because, along with LoG, Grandquest had helped to set the standard for RPG styled Platformers. The game possesses unique story, fantastic visuals, and original sequences. After it's release a few years ago, many platformers started to hold similar concepts and standards set by GQ.
Yes:1
No:0

I say yes to Grandquest. It helped revolutionize platform RPGs today, and is a huge inspiration to other people today. It included a fantastic storyline as well as having original gameplay.

Yes: 2
No: 0

No

The game was great at first, but for me, once you got towards the end the lag was unbearable and it screwed me over countless times.

Level 2 has the only massive lag issues, level 4 has some minor ones, the rest of the levels run nicely.

Not for me. The levels with the four trials lagged like my grandpa trying to walk up the stairs.

Abstain for me. I could never give a good reason to say no and a good reason to say yes. I may change my mind later.

Voting in EGL is never good anymore it seems. Games only get around 7-8 votes now usually.

We should make it it is compulsory to vote if you're an active soldier or something. (perhaps being on at least 6 hours+ a week?)

Nah, that would piss people off. I might make this more evident to soldiers or make a block that pesters them until I get more votes.

Don't. If people don't want to vote, creating a block who's soul purpose is to annoy the shiit out of you until you vote will cause tension.

Btw abstain

Why, it isn't as annoying as the old system where EVERY GAME was a separate thread.
