    We're up to five sets of nominations. I'm happy we're getting a decent spread.

    Okay, so the new thing I want to do for this contest is that I'm thinking that instead of just having games go head to head, I'm going to add a third category where the games compete based a specific element instead of a simple head to head popularity contest. So for example:

    Game 1 vs Game 2 + Category Music

    So the rounds will be based purely on how these games match up based on the category. Similar to something I did a previous contest. The categories would be:

    Plot
    Characters
    Villain
    Music
    Battle System
    Side Content
    Art Direction

    So when the brackets are made, I'll randomize who goes up against who and then randomize those brackets with one of the categories. Does this sound like a plan for everyone?

    Sounds interesting! Though I do imagine this might leave several games severely disadvantaged since they may not be playing to their strength, but the randomness would definitely spice things up

    Yeah, definitely sounds more interesting than a plain popularity contest. Would make me think about my answers more rather than just picking the game I nominated in the first place

    Sadly I still have only five sets of nominations, so I may have add to the list just so this contest will last longer.

    If I don't get more noms in the next four days, I may ask everyone to suggest five more.

    Okay, so it doesn't look like I'm going to get any more noms, so anyone who has nominated already can nom an additional five games to me.

    I submitted again. I did one I didn't last time cause I figured everyone nominated it. And a couple I wasn't sure if fit the bill of RPG.

    Well I rounded out the listing since we had an odd number and instead of noming what I love, since a lot of you covered it, I made my noms more interesting titles that don't get a lot of lip service. I have about 70 entries. So I may double some of these up just to save me some time.

    As usual, I'm more amused by what didn't get nominated as I really thought four entries would be a shoe in for this, but not a single person nominated any of them. I chose not to throw them in because all four are disgustingly popular anyway. Just shows how off beat EoFF really is.

    Now I'm curious too. There were still a few I didn't nominate cause I figured someone else would.

    Actually there were five I was expecting though the fifth one is more of a franchise that usually gets nommed in these contests but is strangely absent. I can spill the beans if people are interested or you can wait until I get the first round finished to see for your selves.
