I sort of feel like this will be a boring contest to predict

I get the feeling the match pics alone will decide it. I don't imagine most voters will actually bother to look at whatever lists or write ups will be provided (at least not before they vote), so whatever games they can easily see in the pictures will be what decides their vote. Which means predictions could be kinda hard without knowing which games will be most visible in the pics.

this is what happens when Allen tries to create a "rally-proof" contest I guess

I don't find this interesting at all. It's too broad of an idea and I don't really care about what year a game came out, but I'm fine with it as long as it's a Villains/Series Contest and we're getting another one later this year

Pretty much this
90% of the reason I don't care about Soccer is because I don't care about any team so the excitement of seeing the team you root for is winning is gone
Like, who the hell cares about years
I like Majora's mask, does it mean I care if 2000 wins? No I don't give a s*** because it might win due to other game and it means nothing

Well at least this is why it's a rally free contest which is good, but still

I'm guessing the tiebreaker is going to determine the top 10-15 spots, yes?

you guys are naive if you think that means it will be rally-free. i half-expect 2016 to win for reasons completely unrelated to games.

Oh god I can even see the logic which will be used to explain that rally

I'm not saying people won't try. I'm saying this is probably Allen's rationale for running this particular contest.

Yeah, individually I'm just gonna vote for whichever year had the bigger games for me personally. But say my favorite game came out in 2005, I can't see myself saying "oh man I hope 2005 wins its all, I'm gonna root for it in every match". It's hard to get emotionally attached to something broad and abstract like a year.

This can't be worse than 2011's rivalry contest. To me that was by far the least exciting contest we have had.


You are now manually realizing that Rivalry Rumble was the last contest with good votals.
