We should so do that and present it to the Developer at the next Retro event!

I'm pretty sure that Sqij is worse than anything on the Cassette 50 and Action 52. Then again, it's unlikely to make it past the first round, so you're probably right.

Wow, I've GOT to play this Sqij game! :shock:
The game cannot be controlled due to the fact that CAPS LOCK is turned on. In order to play the game, BREAK into BASIC and issue POKE 23658,0 and CONTINUE.

If everybody nominated & voted for things that were the common consensus or what other people believed rather than their own opinion then democracy breaks down.

Why wouldn't you nominate a game like "Ocarina of Time, or Halo or Half Life, or Doom etc. etc." if that is the game that gave you the least amount of enjoyment you have ever had playing a computer or games console, is that not what this poll was all about? Or is it an exercise in trotting out the same tired old list to be found in this wiki page... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_vi ... _reception
You've made a bit of an intellectual leap there from me saying that you should not just vote for games you simply don't like, to the breakdown of democracy.
Why would it mean that? There are surely enough truly terrible games out there that there would still be thousands worth voting for. Why would it have to be common concensus off a Wikipedia list... I haven't even read that Wiki list. Everything I have said IS my opinion, no-one elses.
We'll have to agree to differ here. That's what happens with opinions, you can't all have the same one.

Which is why it's perfectly acceptable to nominate Knight Lore in a poll like this.

Thank you for coming round to my way of thinking. :D

Hmmm, that is rather spurious. Leicester people claim that brought is Leicester talk for bought, but I don't buy that either.

Another intellectual leap there :D
However if it preserves democracy as we know it, I'll concede and allow Knight Lore's inclusion.

Why was N3 voted in there?! It's a perfectly functional hack & slash game! Nothing at all wrong with it

Yeah, technically this is a democracy so Grizzly can vote for any excellent game he didnt get on with but the amount of respect and kudos he has lost will haunt him forever more. :wink:
