I ADDED A POLL TO THE OP. PLEASE VOTE!

 

OK, here's a list of 10 that I pulled out of everyone's suggestions. We can do more than that. Do you guys even care about separating things into "seasons"? I don't really see the point, so as far as I'm concerned we can just make it a continuous thing. I would like to hear people's input about the format, how games are chosen, etc. I'll do whatever we can all agree on.

 

Here's the list (in no order)

 

Mario Bros.

Life Force

Bubble Bobble

Ice Climber

Elevator Action

Contra (no code!!)

Tetris

Defender II

Galaga

Gun.Smoke

 

Thoughts?

I've never been consistent at participating in these things, but I'll suggest something anyway:

I'd run each game for 10 days, starting a new one each friday. This way there are 2 games active every weekend, but still a new game each week.

 

If you want to get risky, it might be fun (or just chaotic) to run many games at once. They did something like that for a 2600 Olympics game contest a long time ago. For this to work, there needs to be some good charting that makes it easy for everyone to see how they're doing in each game so far.

This format gives everybody lots of options of what they feel like playing that day, and you can have all results posted in the same thread if you want to make it more lively.

I much prefer to keep the "Season" format and a new game every two weeks. The scoring though would be much easier with the common scoring used in the other HSC's, (i.e. 11 points for 1st, 10 for 2nd, 9 for 3rd, etc).

I don't think that the 2-week thing would be good. that leaves a lot of space for waiting, but that's just me. I don't have a job, or much of a schedule, so I think the older people figure that one out.

If no one else has any comments (and no one seems to), then we can go ahead and get started.

Well, NES should be a "once a week" for each game, because there's 80 zillion games to choose from and everyone owns different games for NES... so by doing a new game once a week, this might keep people looking back at the forum even if they sit out one of the rare game rounds, rather then not seeing any game they own for three weeks and then not returning. :ponder:

 

emulators work, but they can be a pain to set up.

How about some Ninja Gaiden games, or maybe some horrible games that the AVGN reviewed on like Super Pitfall. I'll be glad to help run this.

 

Maybe you could use some scoring aspects of non scoring games like the quickest to save the dam in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

 

There's a lot of original ideas.

 

Look at a video contest I ran on Nintendo-Daily http://www.nintendonerds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2936

I think the point of a HSC is to have fun, not torture yourselves. icon_rolleyes.gif

 

Anyway, I think it might be interesting enough to play one bad game... American Gladiators, anyone?

Super Pitfall might be interesting. I was unlucky enough to own that game back in the day. I think that more people would be willing to give that one a go than something like American Gladiators.

 

Since this topic seems to be getting more attention, I'll try to get the next season started this week.
