All right, I suppose I'll give him a few days to get things started. Otherwise I guess I'll try to take over this thing because I'd like to see it come through.

I wondered if that's what had happened.

Kind of a shame frown

bah baldur's gate 2 already won the gg one (iirc. it MIGHT have been fallout, but i think it was bg2)...

warcrafts/starcraft were fun, but i think Total anihiliation (with cc of course) was better. That space mod that took place in space instead of on the ground was cool. I really liked the huge battleships with multiple turrets.

I don't like best game ever polls. They don't really tell anything. There should only be best game of a certain genre. If person A likes rts games the most, he will say the best game ever is a rts. If person B (who like me) likes rpgs the most, they will say baldurs gate 2 (heh) is the best game ever.

Oh and my favorite games:

Bg2 (and the bg series in general), fallout 1/2, xcom 1, xcom apoc, halflife, kotor (i don't know if this really belongs here since while it was fun, it wasn't in the same league as bg2/fallout) and TA (with xpack).

I don't think BG2 ever won.  X-Com and Fallout have won IIRC.

Ok, I've written down all the nominations (133 in all) having removed some that I found to be console games (there may be a few more of these I didn't catch) and of course the repeats.  I made it into a 128 game bracket with 5 of the inital spots having a three-way competition.  If you see a game, but no number beside it, assume that it is the first one if there are more than one (ex. Gothic = Gothic 1).  Also, there were many games that I've never heard of before (and I usually at least know certain games exist if not having actually played them).  So, if you vote for a game that you think others might not know about, just write up a little bit about it, so everyone can have at least a somewhat informed decision.  I'll give everyone a minimum of 4 days to vote for each round.

Alright, as I said before it is a 128 game bracket, but I'll start with one 64 game side and then the other, after that we'll vote on all the games at once. If someone wants to make a nice drawing go ahead.  Mine is really sloppy and hard to read.  Sorry, I couldn't think of a nice way to do this. Just post your votes and I'll tally them. Anyway, here we go.  On the left side we have:

Jagged Alliance 2 vs. City of Heroes
Rome: Total War vs. Starflight 2
Europa Universalis 2 vs. Dungeon Master
Syndicate vs. Heroes of Might & Magic 2
Wing Commander 3 vs. Mission Force: Cyberstorm
Kohan: Immortal Sovereigns vs. Final Fantasy XI
Total Annihilation vs. Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield
Ultima VII vs. Sanitarium
Thief: The Dark Project vs. Conquest of Camelot
Sam & Max Hit the Road vs. Crimson Skies
Doom vs. Civilization 3
Worms World Party vs. Mechwarrior 2 vs. Half-Life (vote for only one)
Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War vs. Frontier: Elite 2
Age of Wonders 2 vs. Lands of Lore
Wing Commander vs. Dungeon Keeper
Warcraft II vs. Heroes of Might and Magic
The Secret of Monkey Island 2 vs. Railroad Tycoon
Icewind Dale vs. Warcraft III
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind vs. Tomb Raider
Quake 2 vs. The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall
Doom 2 vs. Rise of Nations
Quake 3 vs. Space Quest
Call of Duty vs. Gothic vs. Civilization (vote for only one)
Colonization vs. Pharaoh
Outlaws vs. Longbow 2
Darklords vs. Panzer General
Planescape: Torment vs. Ultima IV
Tribes vs. Diablo
Planet's Edge vs. No One Lives Forever
Magic Carpet vs. Battlefield 1942
Aces of the Pacific vs. Ultima Underworld
Falcon 4.0 vs. Might and Magic 6

Is it ok to only vote for some of the matchups ? Don't want to vote when I don't know both games.

Assuming it is these are the winners I would pick..

Dungeon Master over Europa Universalis 2
Doom over Civilization 3
Half-Life over Worms World Party and Mechwarrior 2
Railroad Tycoon  over The Secret of Monkey Island 2
Tomb Raider over The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Civilization over Call of Duty and Gothic
Diablo over Tribes
Magic Carpet over Battlefield 1942
Falcon 4.0 over Might and Magic 6

for the record...i've never been able to get into the Diablo games at all, while BG (and every other Infinity engine game) are some of my favorites.  i'd rather spend an eternity pulling out my own toenails and using the pieces to gouge out my eyes than miss out on games like BG in favor of playing poor FF clones forever.  BG will get it's chance in the other side of the brackets soon...

and my picks for this round...
