The BYOAC Top 100 (Updated - 10/04)
« on: May 17, 2004, 02:33:06 pm »
Special Thanks to FractalWalk for his macros.  Without them, I would not be able to keep this updated.  Please read the guidelines below.

I believe I'm not alone when I say that it's difficult sorting through those thousands of arcade games (of which I own an actual board of every one,  ;)) to find something new and fresh to play.  On top of that, I think it would be nice to see what everyone's favorite games are.  So, this is my attempt to compile a top 100 list:

Guidelines (PLEASE READ):

1.  Rank your top 20 favorite games in order (with #s please).  You may rank less than 20.  However, if you want to finish it later add it in a new post (do not modify the current one).
2.  Games receive points based on their rank.  i.e. #1 gets 20 points, #2 gets 19, etc...
3.  Honorable mention to be added back later.
4.  The game must be in the current mamelist.txt: http://www.mame.net/gamelist.html  
If one of your favorites is a clone, just pick the original game instead.
5.  Please type the name exactly as it appears in mamelist.txt.  This makes it much easier for me to sort everything in Excel.  See exceptions below.
6.  I will update the scores regularly in this post.
7.  Feel free to test some of the numbers out to make sure there are no errors.  Look for games that are duplicated due to spelling, etc.

Game Exceptions
All games should be listed individually, just as they appear in mamelist.txt except:

SFII WW, Turbo, and Super are combined as - Street Fighter II
Metal Slug 2 and X are combined as - Metal Slug 2/X
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is - TMNT

Have fun!

Are you thinking of taking everyones scores and manually putting them into a spreadsheet or something? Sounds like a headache.

You could set up a nice web-based voting system like MAWS has ( http://www.mameworld.net/maws/ ). It's similar to the good old mame.dk ranking system.
Or you could just get everyone to vote on MAWS, its current 'Hall of Fame' is a little bare seeing as it doesn't get the huge traffic that mame.dk had.

I know Shuffleshot doesn't really go with the rest of the games in my list, but I just found it a few weeks ago, and it's a hoot, especially playing it with a few friends while drinking beer.   ;D

There are some issues on the default 'best' when dealing with cabinets.

1) What are your favorite games.

2) What games play like as#@! if you don't have the original controls.


Defender for one.  I don't like playing it with a joystick...

720 by far my favorite all time game.  But it sucks with all other controllers... And the 720 controllers out there are expensive and only really useful with 720 (ie, no other games)

Fighter games are fun, but not as much without other people around.... And I can't get my wife to play...  (because I put the whoopass down on her... and she leaves...sigh)

And after all that... I'm amazed at some of the games I come back to all the time... which I never played in the arcade...

IE, some games aren't fun with infanite coinage...



So all in all...  my favorites....

Anything with boobs! ;D

Thanks for all the great responses.  Keep em coming!  Don't forget, if you want to add up to 10 additional games you may do so in subsequent "honorable mention" posts.

I want to leave the voting like it is.  After all, this is the best community on the net and I'd like to leave it right here.  I think its great for people to discuss their votes and debate certain games.  It's also a great way to get to know the community members better, by seeing what games are their favorites.  No flaming of course, but teasing in good fun over someone putting Gals Panic (Lilwolf...) in their top 20 is something you can't see in a web poll.

Lilwolf-  vote for YOUR favorites... that is the point.  Vote based on the game itself, not its special controls needs.  Most people that have a cab and love a game enough for it to be in their top 20 will in most cases (with a few exceptions) have the controls necessary.

I'm just curious as to how you're calculating your rankings.  Rygar, for example, appears 4th on someone's list and once on my Honorable mentions.  Therefore it makes sense to me that it would get 16 points for 4th, and 1 point for honorable mention, for a total of 17.  It has that.  However, Gladiator is 4th on my list, which I would expect to get it 16 points, but I don't see it in with the others with 16 points.  Is there a trick to the rankings that I'm not picking up on?

Buddabing listed Gorf twice so I counted the top ranked one and moved everyone else up one slot.  

D'oh! Please put Gravitar #20.
I have changed my nickname to "Cakemeister". Please do not PM the Buddabing account because I do not check it anymore.
