I'm leaning towards a no with Cythera just because the creator is still very new and I dont really remember anything that really stood out, also taking into account that I didn't beat the game. So I can't really vote right now. Also a game needs at least a +5 range to be inducted, so a 3 yes and 0 no doesnt quite cut it if we're still doing that.
It's good to be Young.

I thought I put a minimum vote requirement in XD

I think the minimum of 5 votes the old old egl threads had would work.

Yes: 4
No: 0

Yes to Cythera. It's an excellent story-driven adventure game that is very enjoyable and innovative.

Given the current votes I think Cy is in.

Someone write up a paragraph on it.

If splatter is back on soon, I'd like him to write it (that is if he wants to).  He was such a big part of bringing the game together and the only true tester I had.

Cythera is the first Retro Arcade game to be inducted into the EGL, and it's obvious why. The storyline is amazing, building in every level you play. The gameplay may not contain as many revolutionary elements, but the battles that take place are extremely creative and are thought out well.

Is that long enough?

Idk what is supposed to go into those?  Put that i am sexy and have pretty eyes.  But on the real, you can say it was the first long quest game to include many sidequests and branching storylines (if you need more stuff).

I'm not objecting this to go in the EGL, but it still seems like the creator is too new to determine if something is EGL worthy or not.

I disagree. If you've played 10 different retro games then you already have a sense of good or bad for the creator itself. Personally, I don't like the creator at its current state, so I may see a bunch of games quite boring; I've only played 2 retro games.

If a "creator" is too new it is just too new to you; play some more games before making a decision. This is why I am abstaining from Cytheria.

(Not trying to be a smartass like usual xD) but how long was the plat out before the first plat was inducted?  Or was the EGL made after the release of the plat or what?

Imma suggest two games to veto:

Name of game: GameRaterz 1 and 2
What criteria doesn't this game meet: Not feature worthy by today's standards, added by Darut without vote, average games for the time, 2 is just the first one with a little new area tacked on.
Yes to veto: 1
No to veto: 0
Date game was published: July 19 2008 for #1, #2 was 5 days later

EPIC GAMES =/= NEW

If a game is extremely well executed in what it does, I see no reason to trash it. Innovation should not be the only merit for an epic game.

That said, I still agree with removing the Gameraterz from the library as it wasn't anything too special.

And I agree, but your other point was regarding "new", likely referring to innovation, which is an overrated concept.

LEAVE ALL THE GAMES THAT WERE ADDED IN THE PAST.

It should be a rule, honestly, no need to take them out, we've argued about this before and I think a lot of people including Lah said to leave the games already inducted. It was settled, why bring it up again? Leave it.

It was placed on because darut likes gameraterz (he said so himself)

I say take it off.
