As much as I like the idea of a Knockout tournament (it's like March Madness ... but with arcade games!), I voted for the Mission style tournament. That just sounds quirky and cool, and very different from the tournaments I've seen hosted in the past. It would be fun to see what the missions were!

I also like the Mission Style Tournament....

It would be nice though if these mission challenges will not force us to record our game sessions ;) I'd love to hear what kind of challenges you have in mind if you'd decide to start a Mission Style Tournament :)

While i like the idea of the missions tourney, i still want to give it a go on the Single IGBY or the Knockout :P

These tournaments are awesome. The scope, organization, level of participation, and talent in the two tourneys I've played in so far (shoot-em-up, IGBOTY) are unlike anything I've ever been a part of in this hobby. Looking forward to see future competitions, and keeping retro gaming alive and well.

My vote here is for another IGBOTY-style thing. My problem with something like the missions is that nothing I achieve there has any importance (to me) outside of that tournament. On the other hand, if I work really hard on a specific game that is in the tournament, any score I achieve can be recorded and kept for my own list of personal bests.

Reading your reply I agree with another IGBY or Knockout tournament. I've changed my vote :)

Thanks Cynicaster !

I just thought of something... in the voting process for determining the games, have you ever considered implementing an "anti-vote" or "vote down" feature? Let me explain...

I think there tends to be certain games that are pretty much guaranteed to make the cut, which makes the vote-counting just a formality. In this tournament, for example, rather than make it 12 top-voted games, you might as well just cut to the chase and say "Ok, Donkey Kong and Galaga are in, now everybody vote on the 10 others."

There might be, say, 10 people who would vote for DK without even thinking about it. With thousands of games available in MAME, 10 votes for a single title is a lot. At the same time, there may be 30 people hoping against hope that DK doesn't make it. A "down vote" would give those players a chance to vote against certain games they're tired of seeing or don't want to see, thereby allowing other games to bubble up to the surface and be part of the competition.

One way this could be implemented would be to give each player 5 votes total, with each up-vote or down-vote counting against that 5. So, in theory, a player who favors more obscure games could use all 5 of their votes to vote against games they don't like, rather than wasting their votes on games that nobody else is going to vote for because the games are too unknown.

I'll be totally happy if we go with the rules as they're written, but this occurred to me, so I thought I'd put it out there for consideration.

(PS--for the record, I enjoy DK. But, I can imagine there have to be lots of gamers out there who are sick to death of it and have no chance at it because they don't have hundreds of hours of practice invested before the tourney even starts).

I think Cynicaster has a great point here! As mentioned, most of the time in these kinds of one-way polls they are very predictable. Using the DK example i would be in the No-vote. I have no problem with it being one of the most popular arcade titles of all time, but it does get a bit tedious seeing it come up trumps time and time again. It's great for you fans, but for me personally it ain't my cup of tea. I played it twice as a kid, then once more when it got into our comp (25+ years later) - just to make sure the reasons i disliked it as a kid still stood. Yes they did :P A "No Vote" poll could really swing things in a different, fresh direction. Maybe :)

EDIT - *ninja'd* that's a shame. Could have made things interesting. How about a rule that any title in the Team IGBOTY is disallowed? :P

I always hate seeing DK, Pacman and Galaga. I never really cared about these games. But, like most times these games come up, i just don't play them.

Yeah... I mean, I think they're great games, but sometimes they kind of feel like that song on the radio that may be good, but you've heard it 600,000 times, and just want to hear something else.
