do not see any asterisks on the list?

Also I nominated the OG Deus Ex but only see Mankind Divided on there.

EDIT: IM DUMB NEVERMIND

@“Moon”#p39355 the list we presently see is entirely a list of games that got one vote: games that got more than one vote are still to come!

… Yay me? The true MVP is @“Danimal”#731 for getting Shining Force II, objectively the greatest game ever made, out of the Honor Roll ghetto.

>

@“yeso”#p39350 428 games were chosen

That’s [the most Insert Credit-ish stat](https://store.steampowered.com/app/648580/428_Shibuya_Scramble/) right there.

This is fun data ! I was not expecting so much effort to be put into this, kudos @"yeso"#385 / Victor Hugo.

I love that the sole factor in being the most insert credit person is iconoclasm

Feeling like I prolly made the “least insert credit” list

But holy gdamn what an incredible amount of work @"yeso"#385 - let’s get a round of applause

Fantastic work, @“yeso”#385

It looks like exactly half of my selections are in the above list of "only got one vote" games, so I suppose I'm 50% IC. Not bad, I'll take it.

yakuza 0 outta nowhere, really surprised me

Wow! Would you look at that! Pathologic 2 is on sale for the next 12 hours!

@yeso (I heartily laughed at seeing that link, thank you)

@“yeso”#p39371 i expected it to be pretty high: it's actually the one that feels the most “insert credit pick” in the top 5.

really like the top 10

big shouts out to my SSX3 family, we did it kids

and a tremendous thank you to @"yeso"#385 for taking this on. hard work paid off!!

So if I follow correctly, the most Insert Credit™️ game would be a game from either Nintendo or Sega, released in 2003 and which has been only been voted by a single forum user?

...

Congratulations to F-ZERO GX, the true winner of this poll!

The other five of my selections that made it in to the actual list were ranked: 11, 47, 47, 79, 79. I suspect Doom is at fault for suppressing my iconoclasm.

@"yeso"#385 Is there any chance you could share your annotated working set of data with dates and publishers etc (an excel? a google sheet? a database dump?) at some point? I'd love to have a poke at the data also.

you are god of this forum

@“yeso”#p39351 whoever voted for Shining Force CD should have had to choose a specific game, because that was a ported collection of Shining Force 2 and Shining Force Gaiden (collection actually was different depending on region).

@“chazumaru”#p39358 it’s amazing how I still enjoy Shining Force 2. It was the first video game I ever was really excited to play. I borrowed it from my neighbor friend when I was 7 years old. Still good game to me roughly 24 years later!

@“Danimal”#p39393 [size=10]Shhhhh… Snitches get stitches.[/size] They are remakes so I say they count together as a different game from the Game Gear titles. I am still fuming that I was forced to consider all three episodes of Shining Force III as a single entry.

@“esper”#p39382 I was rooting for yak 0 to take #1, but the “normie” choice of dark souls was too popular. Which is in itself kind of odd to think of that way…

Was also surprised to see 2000+ overtake the good old 1990s as best-regarded era, but then again at this point there are more 2000+ years than 1990s

@"Danimal"#p39394 I played shining force II for the first time just last month thought it was quite good

@"Gaagaagiins"#p39372 what a bargain for the tied-for-47th greatest video game !!

God Hand, Out Run, and Katamari being so high warms my heart. Those are three games I instantly think of having unique and incredible “game feel”. I think this really is a remarkable list. Especially the “only one vote” honorable mentions, which shows just how far from being a hivemind these forums truly are.

A person could do worse than just systematically working through this list from start to finish
