Games of the Year 1984-1999 (Tier List Templates)

Post by ommadawnyawn » Fri Jan 03, 2020 2:24 pm

This ended up fairly popular on a couple of other forums I visit so I figured I might as well post them here as well.

https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1984
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1985
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1986
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1987
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1988
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1989
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1990
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1991
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1992
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1993
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1994
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1995
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1996
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1997
https://tierlists.com/create/top-games-1998

The selections are mainly based on the top user rated games from each year on various database sites. You can make and download a list without logging into Tierlists, then post it here via imgur or whatever. Or you can post a text list if you want.

I'm going by original release dates and mostly original versions of games unless there's a consensus about a port being better or it's significantly different like Rygar on NES for example - if not you can see the original version as a catch-all for other versions.

If a game you'd like to see in a template's selection is missing, you can mention it here (use bold text) and it'll count as a vote. 5+ votes means I'll add it to the template and you can vote until the next year. Current votes for such games are below and you can find more notable games to vote for in the GameFAQs threads (https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/20 ... g/78292482).

I've since covered MD/GEN exclusively.

Let me know if there's any other system you'd like to see covered in the same way:
