I think there's a question mark over how we would score Cannon Fodder.

A scoring system for Lionheart was suggested and accepted recently and it has been on the verge of being voted in a couple of times, hopefully it will make it sooner or later.

@Harry: Thanks for the games, updated the list. Wasn't sure about these strategy games. Good news that they work for competition (I think also Mega lo Mania should somehow work).

How it should be scored is still open, but as Graham said: "Yes, we can work out a system for this if we ever need to!"
Pity about Jim Power though. :|

Glad to hear this. Never got around to playing through this game.

Mega Typhoon can come off, not that it matters. I find this list really useful for inspiration for playing games when I've got a few minutes spare, let alone the comp voting.

Still can't believe we haven't played a Cannon Fodder game yet...

Somehow missed this thread...

Firstly, I think a list of games that can be voted for is a good idea, especially as we don't have as many well-known games to choose from as we normally do and some struggle to come up with suitable games. And there's quite a lot of stuff on that list (not all of them eligible, like Marble Madness, but it's not possible to check everything).

However, I think quality (especially in the context of the competition) is pretty subjective - I certainly wouldn't agree with a number of these - and lists like these shouldn't be an attempt to influence people with their votes. Even more so with a lot of the games at the top which are terrible ideas for competition games. Even if we can find a way to score them, I wouldn't take that as an endorsement of them.

Fair enough. Changed this into a single list with no ratings and removed Marble Madness + Mega Typhoon.

Only just remembered Archer Maclean's Pool. Should have put that in for the A round. Hopefully it might come up along with Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker. I'm a fan of both and I'm sure we could come up with an engaging play method.

The list continues to shrink: Alien Breed Special Edition '92, Arabian Nights, Golden Axe and Super Cars have been eradicated from it.

Still a big list though.

Thanks for keeping this up to date as I still look at it for voting and game inspiration generally...

I've only just seen the list. To be honest, most of the names look pretty boring, and games like Shadow Warriors and Hudson Hawk are either difficult or unfair.

Out of these games that you listed these 33 were already on my boring list:

Alfred Chicken
Alien 3
Apocalypse
BC Kid
Brian the Lion
Chuck Rock
Global Gladiators
Harlequin
Hunter
James Pond 1: Underwater Agent
James Pond 3 AGA
Lethal Weapon
Lethal Xcess
Locomotion (Kingsoft)
Marvin's Marvellous Adventure
Motörhead
Nicky Boom
Out To Lunch
Outrun Europa
Overdrive
Pegasus
Premiere
Prime Mover
Putty
Quik the Thunder Rabbit
Rampage
Saint Dragon
Star Wars
Switchblade 2
The Addams Family
Toki
Wings of Death
Wiz 'n' Liz



These games have already been played in the league:

Banshee
Battle Squadron
Mean Arenas
Midnight Resistance
Quik & Silva
Stardust
Warzone

And F1 is basically just a rerelease/reskin of Vroom.



Quake? Come on...



These games just look too bad:

All Points Bulletin
Apano Sin
Dynamite Düx
Frenetic
Ghouls and Ghosts <= Ghosts 'n Goblins which I've listed is far superior on Amiga
Impossamole
Kid Gloves
Killing Machine
Power Drift
Safari Guns
Slackskin & Flint
Wheels On Fire

Someone else would need to speak up for them.



But there still remain these 43 suitable games which I'll add to the list:

Assassin
Atomic Robokid
Base Jumpers
Beach Volley
Blob
Captain Planet and the Planeteers
Chaos Engine 2
Cool Spot
Desert Strike
Doodlebug
Dragon Strike
F17 Challenge
Fuzzball
Hole In One
Indianapolis 500
Ivan Stewart's Super Offroad
Jimmys Fantastic Journey
Leading Lap MPV
Lollypop
Metal Law
Micro Machines
Microcosm
Oscar AGA
Pinball Mania
Pipe Mania
Ruffian
Shanghai
Simulcra
Sly Spy: Secret Agent
Super Gem'Z
Super Space Invaders
Take 'Em Out
Tearaway Thomas
The Settlers
Top Gear 2
Venus the Flytrap
Wendetta 2175
Wonderdog
Woody's World
World Class Leader Board
XP8
Zany Golf
Zoom

Thanks for these.
Captain Planet is poor but I reckon you Brits have a lot of nostalgia for it due to them being "free" for you (Venus the Flytrap, too).



Yours truly will also add Loopz, Galaga '92 and Chambers of Shaolin (percentage scores for your character after going through all the chambers).



I like these three games you've listed:

Mr Nutz
Exile
Panza Kick Boxing / Best of the Best

But how should we score them?



edit: We now have 194 games on the list.

Hi John, thanks for going through the long list.

Adding games on your knowledge of those you refuse to add is no excuse. A suitable game is a suitable game, and there is nothing wrong with the games. Ghouls and ghosts is for me infinitely better than the insanely hard original game, and I can complete Ghouls pretty easily. So to say you cant add it just because this is your list and you have final say, is just like what Graham said about leading or misleading the vote. Some of the games like Safari Guns are excellent if you only spent the hours to play them like me. And calling a great SEU Apano Sin bad after never even trying it is an insult to Mega Typhoon and all the games you played thanks to playing unknowns.

I agree with your list of unsuitable games, although Exile has a score, the player would be playing until they get bored, or after 3 hours of timed gameplay, as I think there is also a timer in the game which counts up. I think exile is a doddle compared to scoring something like Mega Lo Mania, but we have played far harder scoring games.

That's not my reasoning. I looked at the Lemon comments for these games and they were overwhelmingly negative that's why I excluded them.

But if you really invested that much time in testing them I'm just going to take your word for it and add them. Wheels on Fire looks eye-cancer inducing though.

edit: That makes 206 games on the list now. Enough for the next decade.

The list looks so much better now. I'm always remembering games which we never played but would be good, but 99.9% of the time I forget to write down the names. I think the last game I saw was Virocop, and speaking of which...

Some games from 2009 and 2010 are also back in play, including:

R14: Fire and Ice [link]
R13: Pac-Mania [link]
R12: Globdule & Gods [link]
R11: Uridium 2 [link]
R10: Super Hang-On [link]
R09: Skidmarks [link]
R08: Pinball Illusions & Virocop [link]
R07: Assassin SE [link]
R06: Nitro [link]
R05: Project-X SE [link]
R04: Tetris Pro & Atom Smasher [link]
R03: Qwak [link]
R02: Lotus Turbo Challenge 2 [link]
R01: Apidya [link]

^ Yes they are eligible again to be voted for. But in this thread I'll only list games that we've never played in the league.
