    Iím all for the randomness, but how exactly would two categories work?

    Basically, if you got Music and Gameplay, you would base your answer on which of the two has the best of both. I was thing that with each round we would add another category so by the final round it would fall into a which game has the best of all the traits.

    Except it wouldn't really be that anyway, because you may have eliminated the game that has the best of all traits in an earlier round. I mean once you include two or more categories, it's not like the winner is always going to be chosen for both categories. It can't be that there's always a case where one game is better than the other in both categories. Sometimes it will just be that game 1 is way better than game 2 in category A, while game 2 is only a little better than game 1 in category B. So even the game that has "the best of all traits" isn't necessarily better than all other games in every category and, therefore, it could be eliminated early.

    Yes but it does give the voters more weight on the issues. Maybe Game A has a better battles system than Game B, but Game B has better music, and for some voters that may be more important to them.

    I may take a few days to start up round 2, I'm still hoping to hear some other's opinion on this idea. If I get too much push back, we'll just continue as we have.

    With that said, I do have one question for everyone: What entry do you wish wasn't eliminated in Round 1? This is important, so please make your choice in this thread. *hint hint*

    Also, is there a category you want to eliminate?

    Yes, there is. Optional content, because I simply don't value it as a category. Optional content can be good or bad, but it doesn't become better simply by virtue of being optional. So I really hate for a game that doesn't have much optional content to get knocked out by a game that does, when ultimately what really matters is the content, not whether it's optional or not.

    I wish either Baldurís Gate or Planescape: Torment didnít get eliminated. And Iím fine with all the categories

    For me it's FFVIII. But Suikoden V or Suikoden III are up there too.

    I like the idea of doing two categories per round. So far, the categories have been pretty successful at getting me to vote against my own nominations. Having two categories should make things even more interesting.

    Dragon Age: Origins is the one I wish hadn't been eliminated.

    All of the categories are great, don't get rid of any.

    I'm fine with all the categories. As for which entry I wish hadn't been eliminated..probably Ar Tonelico (2)

    Speaking of which, I am utterly shocked that all 3 of my Trails nominations got through the round.

    Don't lie. We all know you did all 4 Trails of Cold Steel noms. :P

    There were indeed, the four Cold Steel games and Ao no Kiseki (Trails to Azure). I didn't nominate Cold Steel 1 and 2, though I'm pretty sure I know who did

    Okay, so I'm starting Round 2 soon!

    The people have spoken so I will not randomize the titles, but I am going to go by two categories. I'm also keeping all categories. I also feel I should explain some of these and I'm rebranding one category.

    Categories are:
    Plot - The main story
    Characters - the cast of characters in the game including NPCs
    Villains - the antagonists of the story
    Music - all that lovely music from battle themes to simply town themes. I'm also including audio design here for those who care.
    Gameplay - Battle system, how you interact with the world, minigames
    Side Content/Replay value - Does the game have cool things to do besides the main quest? How about good replay value?
    Art Direction - How does the game look?

    I should have the first matches up by tomorrow.

    Replay value is a nice change. It would have changed my vote in the FFIV/Suikoden match-up, but FFIV advanced anyway, so no biggie.
