As we count down to the final days of the generation, it’s time for Xbox Era to tally the votes. We will compile the results and then report our XboxEra’s favorite games of the generation based on the scoring system. It won’t end there. Will use your lists to provide additional insights about this communities tastes such as favorite genres, favorite 1st party games, top ranked Indie, top ranked game in the major genres, favorite publishers, proportion of AAA vs Indies, average Metacritic and percentage of multiplayer vs single player games that make your top 10s. If there are other attributes you’d like to see explored (that we can realistically dig up the data for) suggest them along with your list.
Keep in mind that all you need to do is list the games! We’ll find the rest of the data.
- Write your list 1 through 10 by Saturday November 7th (to give me a chance to provide the results before the new console’s launch)
- If you decide to change your votes, edit your initial post in this thread. I won’t officially record your rankings until after midnight Nov 7th.
- All games on all platforms (Xbox One, Switch, PS4 and PC) released between the time Xbox One and PS4 launched and now count with the exception of remasters. Full remakes do count if there were improvements beyond resolution and frame rate. Examples of games that would count are Resident Evil 2, Master Chief Collection and Shadow of the Colossus. Games that wouldn’t count are Last of Us Remastered, Dark Souls 1 Remastered and GTA 5.
- If you cannot think of 10 games, that’s OK. Your top games will still receive their points according to rank.
- I will assign 10 points to your #1 game, 9 points to #2, 8 points to #3 and so on.
- If you cannot choose an order, your games will split the points.
Comments about the games you vote for are not required however they’re always great to hear and may be used in the final article.
