Keep it 20.  I think 20 was the perfect number.  It made me pick more carefully, but not leave too many out.

Edit:  If you allow too many more votes it'll be hard to sort out the BEST ones.

After much debating on #TMK I agree with Luigison.

Awesome thread, though insanely overwhelming.

Well, I voted. Of the games I've played (sadly, only a fraction of those listed), I chose the games that gave me the most joy when playing and for the longest amount of time (replay value, I suppose). There were several games I would've voted for, had they been on the list, but it's NP's poll, so...

My subscription ended at 199 as well. X_x 
I thought about not renewing it, as I don't like how NP's become lately, but so many awesome games just came out or are coming out that I want to see how they're covered. Especially since the issue after my last one is 200... >_< So yeah, must renew. I'd like to get a strategy guide, anyway, so it's all good.

Why did so many subscriptions expire at 199? Is it some kind of plot?

I am crushed under the magnitude of awesome games that have come out on Nintendo systems. I'm also very glad to have played most of them. I am a better person for having experienced their sublime beauty.

I tended to vote for the best game in a series, and then move on. But the question on everyone's mind really is:

Who voted for Pinball of the Dead as one of the top 20 Nintendo games?


« Reply #18 on: December 21, 2005, 03:39:09 PM »
My voting strategy was a combination of what I felt while I was playing the game for the first time and whether   I still thought the game was a good one to this day. Some games qualified for the first screening but failed during the second (WarioWare: Touched!, for example). *insert comment about how big the poll is here*.

Thanks for the kind words and kind votes, everyone.  Chup, I was the other person who voted for MMX.
Today's actually... nobody's birthday!  Quick, hurry up and make a baby!

Metroid Fusion isn't getting much love.  :(  It's really a great game; I probably would have voted for it if I had a 21st vote.

« Reply #22 on: December 21, 2005, 05:15:59 PM »
You selected too many options. For this poll, you may only select 20 options.
I selected 200. :)

Mario didn't get much love, did he? Who came first, NP?

You guys think that your subscription ending in issue 199 is bad? Mine got delivered to another address!

Ocarina of Time, which is overrated IMO.

Someone lend me 20 bucks so I can renew my subscription instead of buying the latest issue 2 weeks later at Toy's R' Us.
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

Mr. Wiggles, I don't have 20 bucks.  Will 20 bells do?

Watoad, it has retro stickers, but I haven't look at it in any detail yet.

Edit:  I thought you were in Mississippi?

Only stickers? *is relieved* I was rather afraid that I'd be missing some kind of free, cool, arranged, symphonic soundtrack. That'd have been a total bummer.

I'll be leaving for the airport at about 3:30 a.m. on Monday. I haven't decided yet whether or not to bother even going to bed the night before.

It also has an interesting poster and a cool interview with Kazuaki Morita, that's about it. The stickers are the coolest and most unusable thing in there.


So you're back with NP again, huh?

Hehe.  Yeah, the stickers are nice but you could easily make some on your own.  The poster is pretty interesting.  My favorite poster so far was the Advance Wars DS one that looked like the Japanese box art.

My favorite poster is either Jet Force Gemini, Harrier 2001, or some other one that I'm not quite remembering. It's hard to be sure because I've received around 90 NP posters since I first subscribed.

My subscription ended at 199 as well. X_x 

Really?! How strange! I thought I was the sole chump under a super-cool-soundtrack-slipping-through-the-grip curse, but now I see that my hunch was wrong on two counts.

Why did so many subscriptions expire at 199? Is it some kind of plot?

I am crushed under the magnitude of awesome games that have come out on Nintendo systems. I'm also very glad to have played most of them. I am a better person for having experienced their sublime beauty.

Wait, were there others besides mine and Sapphira's? Could this be?! Don't make me kill Jar Jar again!! (Sorry, Sapph. :/ )

Unlike our Lizard here, when I look at the list after posting this, I'll probably find that there are maybe as many as 20 games on the list that I've played even once. This is another way of saying that I likely won't do much judging and deciding but a lot of mad hoping and scanning.

Better person. Heheh. Great line.
