Time marches on...

Continuing Round ONE:

I'm going to keep all Round One polls open until the whole round is finished, so if you missed the last one, go back and vote now!

(I'm also going to post later "parts" more often so this doesn't drag on too long.)

Well, where's the logic in randomly creating a grid and then pitting them up head-to-head? Doesn't make sense to me but I admit you've got my curiosity.

I did not "randomy create a grid". I opened up nominations and then, based on a 3-2-1 point structure, listed the titles in points order from the highest point winner to the lowest. Using that, I determined the seeds for the four divisions. Ties were settled by random number generation.

We do this every summer.

Crystal Castles (This game blew me away with its awesome graphics)
Ms. Pac-Man (So much better than Pac-Man)
Spy Hunter (The soundtrack for this game alone made it worth playing, but it was also a GREAT game)
Tempest (Best Vector game ever?)

Same votes but I wanted to abstain on the Castles/Blueprint vote - didn't like either - but the system wouldn't let me not vote for one question! :P

Spy Hunter and Battlezone battle it out for my all-time fav game with Defender 3rd.
