    I love me some Katamari. But in my mind It's a Playstation franchise. The lone, weird entry into the world of Xbox, I don't usually even ever remember it exists. (I also don't acknowledge or remember the mobile games exist)

    I can't stand aerial dogfighting games because you spend most of your time turning around trying to face your opponent, and trying not to crash at the same time. Star Wolf and the Sector Y boss were the least fun parts of Star Fox 64. At least they didn't have too many obstacles...

    The only game on this list I never heard of. At this point I'll be happy with any winner though, we've got some good stuff there!

    There were better JRPGs on the platform. I could only see it as Toriyama recycling his old art and ideas.



  • @Axel

    The only game on this list I never heard of.

    Jeez man. I know this wasn't released in the US, but how is it even possible for this to fall between the cracks like this? You must have HUUGE cracks.

  • @Sazime @TokyoSlim I looked it up now, it does look cool! Don't worry, you guys still have MechAssault representing the genre!



  • @Axel

    Only one game on this list had The President of the United States in a mech suit battling the Army to fight against slavery. It's not MechAssault.

    Removing DoA as it's the only one left that I dislike.

    Never understood the cult following of this game, its fine, but it's not great

    The genre is no longer represented. Any game with 'ass' in the title is much too lewd for my tastes.

    I didn't love this the few times I got to play it



  • Lost Odyssey
    Alan Wake
    Tales of Vesperia
    Panzer Dragoon Orta

    The others offer more interesting and/or unique scenarios for a game to deal with. They'll make good finalists.

    I'm not too much into railshooters, though I have to say, the story is phenomenal.



  • Before the straw poll is created by our overlord, I'd like to point out the new episode of Easy Update not only is all about KYB, it also features the new mechanic of a "shield". Whether or not we implement it here, it might be interesting to experiment with.



  • @SabotageTheTruth I almost tried to shield MWC.



  • @SabotageTheTruth How to implement shields in our version of KYB is tricky... Should all have one shield? or are there x amount of shields that anyone can use? When shield needs to be activated for it to work? Right after the kill, or is there a time limit? But I'm sure we can work things out with our Overlord, once he decides to create the Stawpoll of final judgement.



  • @jipostus Yeah, that's what I've been thinking on too. It might work if everyone who helped create the list received one shield. To add additional spice, maybe a rule where you can't shield the game you nominated, but another game you feel is worthy. I do remember speed of the kills being a problem with certain lists, so this implementation might make it worse.

    Watching through this Easy Update though, they touched on one thing that has always bothered me (a bit) with these lists - killing a game you haven't played. So often, especially towards the beginning of the list, games are murdered because they haven't been played/heard of, or exist in a certain genre. It effectively kills the drama and makes certain kills lack impact. On the inverse, since most of these lists are created by the community, there's always one or two games that most of us have never heard of, so we'd run the risk of letting only the most obscure live, which also isn't very great. If I had to put in a vote for the direction I'd like to see things go is back to the roots - lists pulled from various sources online that could then only be killed if someone had experienced them. Basically, I want to feel the kill. Granted, this is just one drunk Psyduck's tossing out ideas.



  • I think the problem is that a carefully curated list whittled down by two to three people that care deeply about most things on the list is a wildly different approach compared to a shotgun-list made and whittled down by dozens. Shields really aren't compatible with this play style.



  • @DeweyDTruman We can make it work!

    Maybe.



  • I agree that shields would probably not work well in our circumstance. Unless you just want to give the only shield to me along with the responsibility to be the only person allowed to save Metal Wolf Chaos. In which case I'm 100% in favor.
