YOUR Desire Index



  • After reading the EZA Desire Index thread, I thought I would take the initiative and create the thread about where we stand with our desire index. Here's what I was thinking: We each give our own index of games. From those, a communal list, which will be listed in this specific post will be the "Master Index" of our game desires. After a lot of life, this thread has now taken on a different look than how it started. So just leave a list and see where your games appear! Please note: I retain the right to determine any Unannounced game's inclusion to the Master Index on a case by case basis.

    As it stands, the EZA Forum Desire Index is as follows:

  • Great idea to add that "Master Index" of ours into the mix! And to use only the same games as the podcast (wouldn't obviously work otherwise).

  • @Brannox Thanks for making this! But why do we have to only pick from the Allies list, why not let everyone rank their own personal favorites? I realize it would be a lot more work to keep track of if you're building a master index from those though, so up to you! :)

    This is such a good idea. Stop having such interesting ideas.



  • @axel I thought so too, but the primary reason is solely on my end and is happening right this second! Trying to update the list with averages in real time is a hassle (BUT WORTH IT!!!) and if everyone throws their own games in, it will be a mess to keep track of.

    By staggering the games, it allows me to add in segments. Trust me, there are several games I'm anticipating NOT on the OG Desire Index, but I want to wait until they are discussed on the podcast. In the event the podcast DOESN'T go over the Index, I think at that point we'll have to. But we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Back to calculating!



  • Master Index has its first update! Also, there was a two way and a three way tie! In order to determine a tie-breaker, priority was given to the highest overall desire. This is why Smash is above Skull and Bones and why Halo beat out Babylon's Fall who edged Fallout 76 at time of writing.



  • I don't watch EZA Podcast and therefore have no place here.



  • @musou-tensei Yes, from Most to Least is how it works, as it helps me average out the whole list. Which is why all ten are needed. If it helps, try to think about it like this: List the four games in the order you want them at the top, then with the remaining, go game by game you have more and more dislike for until you fill out the ten. Once you have your list posted, I'll average it into the Master Index.



  • My Desire Index (5th edition):

  • And the Master Index has its second update. The Last of Us Part II passed Kingdom Hearts III and Resident Evil 2 Remake passed Skull & Bones, both by the slimmest of margins. But Fallout 76 had the biggest movement, jumping from last to 6th. Sonic Team Racing and Halo: Infinite are still tied, but STR had a higher desire.



  • I don't watch EZA Podcast and therefore have no place here.



  • After the third update, Kingdom Hearts III was able to pull back ahead of The Last of Us Part II. Resident Evil 2 Remake tied with Smash, but takes precedent with the higher desire. Babylon's Fall pulled a Fallout 76 and went from last to sixth. Babylon's Fall, Skull & Bones and Sonic Team Racing all tied, but BF got the higher desire while I had to go to a THIRD tiebreaker to put Skull and Bones over Sonic Team Racing. And all three of those just barely are ahead of Fallout 76 at time of this post.

  • After the fourth update, I'm starting to notice some patterns. First, there are no tiebreakers for this one! And Resident Evil 2 Remake surpassed The Last of Us Part II, which is the MOST polarizing game. You either love it or hate it. Smash, Babylon's Fall, Sonic Team Racing (which switched positions with...), and Skull & Bones are all separated by less than a single point. It's so close, Babylon's Fall is only ahead of Sonic Team Racing by 0.1. And Halo and Fallout are becoming the perennial bottom dwellers, with Halo getting out of last, but only just.

  • Update number five saw very little change. Skull & Bones jumped Sonic Team Racing to tie with Babylon's Fall, but BF has a higher desire so it remains ahead. The ONLY other change was at the bottom, as Fallout and Halo swapped spots. Also, it's become clear CyberPunk is the most consistent entry. And if not for one list, so would Fallout.
