Title: EGL Voting Center [Cythera Accepted, Veto vote on GameRaterz 1 and 2]
Post by: theravicale on March 11, 2013, 08:38 pm
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:

Recommended but NEVER Required:

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:


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.

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.

What about for EGD?
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.

Post by: lumberjay on March 29, 2013, 10:19 pm
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

[edit by ravi, you just forgot one little thing]
Title: Re: EGL Voting Center, Please suggest some games!
Post by: Princess Matty on March 29, 2013, 10:26 pm
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.

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.

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

Not at all actually. With the old system you could easily skip by the thread. You are putting up a block that is not skippable.

Nada, I changed the rules to try and spur activity:

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:

In a perfect world I would get everyone to post a reason but that rule was a pain to enforce and reduced activity.

The block is in the thread title taking up even less space than another thread would. I'm sorry but your argument is idiotic.

Post by: Princess Matty on April 06, 2013, 02:33 am
I haz suggestion.

Mind Lock (http://www.sploder.com/games/members/lumberjay/play/mind-lock/)

While this game may not have fantastic visuals and hasn't revolutionised Sploder as much as other PPGs, it is very unique and has been executed well. A simple idea that was turned into an amazing game.

Yes: 1
No: 0
My vote: Yes

Post by: JJS on April 06, 2013, 05:49 am
No, I don't think it's really EGL worthy (I almost/did (?) beat it btw, so I've seen enough of it to tell). Sorry, it's a great game but I don't think it's as unique as you think.

No to mindlock, I didn't really have fun while playing it and it wasn't THAT cool.

Btw Ravi, I said no the GQ, however GQ2 on the other hand is worthy. It has a cool plot, great scenery and killer game play.
+/- 1/0

Y u no Gq2 D:

It fixed every complaint I received about the first one (Lag, stale puzzles near the end, level 2's ending, lack of action, ect).

Either way, no to Mind Lock, it felt like I was just spamming z and x to do what I wanted.

Yes to LOG, along with the original GQ it revolutionized platformers with scale, decent scenery, ect. (Though if it is in, the first GQ would go hand and hand with it).

No. Too short and not enough gameplay. A game needs to be fun as well as cool. While it may have a really great story (after a flash game might I add), it's just not fun enough.

No, a good story based game mixes story and gameplay together, this one pushes the gameplay off of a cliff and lets the story sit there silently waiting for someone to make sense of it.

Fan fic is ok and also, before GrandQuest and LOG most platformers were relatively small, they brought about the large platformer RPG games.

So what? I don't feel either revolutionized anything, hell I didn't play through more than a level of either game until after I made Quest Zone. Since I was ignorant of the situation does that make my game revolutionary? No. Just because its longer doesn't mean it changes everything because people had the capability to make longer games, they just didn't access the function until later.

You may have started questzone but unless you happened to delay it for about half a year just for EGD then you are lying:

I already knew that Lonely Roads was already in production, and it shows, the gameplay is quite different from GrandQuest in most respects.
I started QZ in December. It took a long time.
You said you made it (in past tense). Even then GrandQuest could still have influenced the game (IE, I vaguely remember a level with 2 towers that was somewhat similar to level 5 in GrandQuest, however I may be confusing it with a different game).

Post by: Princess Matty on April 08, 2013, 04:48 am
LOG- No.

I found the game long and quite repetitive. The storyline was decent, but the idea of the temples in every level was boring to me. It got very repetitive and there wasn't any parts that made me go WOW!

And i did beat the game

I have no idea about the votes, but I think it might be
Yes: 2
No: 1

People, y u no fill out app XD


Either way, abstain. The game was one of the more complete feeling games in its time and was definately great, but it had some wierd choices at times that I disliked. The scenery thing didn't come up out of nowhere with this game either, the first two GrandQuest games (the 2009 ones, not the new remake ones that go in and out of voting all the time XD) came up at around the same time and both used backwalls extensively (not as well but still) for the time so the scenery thing was likely to come up at some point with any game.

Nope. It's scenery is the reason is landed in there, and it is enjoyable to play as well as looking at it. This really helped set the mark for scenery, so I'm not gonna go ahead and say it shouldn't be in the EGL

Fan fic is ok and also, before GrandQuest and LOG most platformers were relatively small, they brought about the large platformer RPG games.

Wrong, they were around before then. They just weren't as popular because popular Sploder members hadn't made them extremely popular.

I dont think any of the games we're voting on right now really started any trends or revolutionized anything. I could be wrong but that's my perspective. We should just be voting on them in overall quality.

What makes an epic game epic? I do think that a well executed revolutionary concept is one thing but that doesn't have to be the exclusive factor. I think that if a game executed any concept, whether it or not it has been used before, in a manner that is brilliant, should be considered.

Since we don't have to pump out x-amount of games into the library, that is good, we don't have to worry about being forced to select a game. However, we should keep in mind that we should consider what is currently being made and what great things can happen out of what has already been made.

That was my thought too. It just seemed like the games were being based on revolutionary aspects only, and I just tried to clarify that games should be judged by overall quality, not just for what they did for future games.

No to Legend; the environments lack detail to really pull it together (Grant could have carefully plotted lighting to hide lack of detail), the level design is inconsistent and choppy in many areas and isn't the most consistent, and honestly it felt a bit tedious. It's decent but it feels like a period piece.

Really? It doesn't get in because of a lack of background detail? Each level is like 2000 peices, and lighting can really slow down a game. If grant were to add in any more detail the game would be slow af.

As for the flow, I thought it flowed fine, but you could percieve it differently.

Nada, the envoirnments were a small part of it and the game already had lighting. If Grant used it to HIDE the lack of detail more (Hiding it in dark places) then it would have been better. My main issues are that the game simply feels outdated in general, it's a good game but as far as polish and more modern style designs go, it doesn't work well and just feels like a period piece.

No to getting your drivers license. It was funny and all, and quite clever, but I found the game play repetitive and it got a little old for me. It's an impressive creation as far as comedy goes, but everything else seemed to lack for me. It's kind of the same deal with how most feel about Unorthodox. Great story, couldn't have made it any better in my opinion, but it didn't get in because the game play lacked. So in all fairness I feel like this isn't quite EGL worthy either.

I meant in the terms of picking which games to discuss.  You guys talk about all the older member games and will not give Cythera a thought even though it already has 2 yes's.  But most likely since I 'whined' about it being voted on a few people will probably vote no in spite.

This system works no where NEAR as well as the last one did. Go back to the one thread per suggestion, it's EASIER to vote for games because there's so many comments and suggestions here in one thread it's easier to get lost in it all. I'd be more inclined to vote and I know I voted way more when we had individual threads. It never needed to be changed, voting is much easier when there's an individual thread for it imo, and more neat to vote for games.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

It was never voted on and blindly leaving sub par games on EGL damages its credibility.

5- Removal from Egl
2- Keep in Egl.

This is not a vote towards either because I don't play shooters (yes hate me) so I'm not in place to say anything.

But if the game really was released like 5 days after the first, it just seems like it's too fast and was darut like friends with gameraterz or something?

Take it out if it really bothers you that much.  It's funny.  Sometimes we forget that this website is about the general public...not just us.  Does it really matter if we leave it?

Darut just added it in without any vote or anything.

Going by that logic, featured games should be done via vote like contests (ha! no). No, in reality EGL is about showcasing the highest quality games, not the most popular, but the highest quality games. Having Gameraterz 1 and 2 in it damages its credibility.

That's not what I'm saying.  Has anybody but a few of us brought up that this "damages" its credibility?

I'm just giving my opinion that it doesn't belong and damages credibility. I was just stating that if it was about the general public and we based EGL off of that then it would be flawed.

We can vote on things ourselves but still keep it about the general public.  :/

I KNOW.  What I'm saying is that unless the A MAJORITY OF THIS WEBSITE is in riot over the game, I don't think it's that big of a deal lol.

Didnt darut just place those games in himself? I never thought they were worthy but if they were truly voted in then I say keep them in there.

It was added in his original list if memory serves right. Even then they are sub par in comparison to the other EGL games.
