So we used to do this for a Bible study I used to do. We did more of a point system, much like NASCAR (or Mario Kart, to keep it game-y).

Everyone listed their top three options, and assigned a value to it. The top vote got five points, the second got three, and the third got one. This covered a scenario where everyone in the group was okay with the second choice, but were very polarized on the top choice. It worked rather well, honestly.

I think y'all are overthinking it. aj and noise already set up the voting thing perfectly, imo. I'll just do the same.

And here I was looking forward to Exhum's categories, such as these:

"Dating Sims involving pigeons"
"Games where you play as grizzled white guys"
"Games featuring banana hammocks and man thongs"
"Stuff I complain about"

And also Kings Field.

Actually I was thinking more along the lines of:

"1990s FPS"
"SNES USA released JRPGs"
"Obscure 2D fighting games"
"Might & Magic series"
"Retro remakes on modern platforms"

But it looks like it's gonna have to be banana thongs after all.
PLAY KING'S FIELD.

Gee, and here I was expecting:

“Git off my lawn!”
“Damn Kids!”
“I would’ve gotten away with it, too!”
“Git gud!”
“K___’_ F____”

:wink:

Wow, I managed to get three mods to goad me on one page! New record everybody! 8)

I'll go ahead and ruin the surprise; I won't be listing King's Field for any of my poll options.
That'd be a waste of an option, no way that series would win.
PLAY KING'S FIELD.

Well, if you aren’t using “Git off my lawn!” That means I can volunteer next year and use it.

I suggest the theme: "Git off my King's Field!"

Except no one else is ever on a king's field but me, so maybe not.
