And then another platformer for little children is going to win again.

Yes, that is highly probable going by past events. Maybe a winner like that gets blocked or delayed on account of Spongebob being played recently.

I doubt Witcher 3 on hard mode or actually finishing Nier:A is putting a twist to it.

Fair enough. I think playing a game on something aside from normal mode or completing the full story to something he has done is at least different from the way he normally plays games.

Yeah, but he's playing 1 game, 2 at most.

I bet anyone can decide to make a proper list that they're happy with, of let's say 5-10 games, and not leave something important. Nominating >35 is kind of ridiculous, and most will only get 1 nomination, as we've seen in previous threads. But "technically" it can be done, right? So nothing stops me from choosing 500 games.

The number of games he is playing is inconsequential to what is nominated. Anyone can make N number of games and it can be considered "proper" that they are happy with and they may consider them all "important". Having first round options isn't ridiculous. Its just the way the Viewers Choice is designed to work with the mult-round system ("THIS IS YOUR OPPORTUNITY to get me a game you've always wanted to see me play, and I haven't! So take advantage of it and good luck!").

You're right. Nothing stops someone from choosing 500. So why not? Higher number of nominations don't stress the forums, don't make it harder to nominate or choose games, and has no negative impact on the event. Or is the idea to introduce a brand new rule in the midst of nominations like has happened in the past? Should we go back to every VC Nomination thread and ban everything that only got one vote just for the sake of it? Something getting only one vote and not moving forward isn't an issue. We don't know if something will get more than one nomination on its second appearance or if it will still get one.

If Phil wants to make another arbitrary rule to limit the number of nominations, let him do so and make the new rule very clear. I'll go back and edit my own nomination post. And then all of us can police each others posts to make sure that we don't exceed the maximum number across multiple posts.

No, I'm against changing rules on the fly, and I'm all for making them very clear from the start.

So it's all set for this event, you shouldn't go back & edit your post unless you actually changed your opinion regarding the games, not because of new criteria. I just find it funny that you can nominate literally hundreds/thousands of games, and even several times if you change the conditions, (E.g: "Dark Souls Magic-run" & "Dark Souls broken-sword-run" are technically different, so I can stack them up), despite the total number being inconsequential.

This dude still hasn't played Hollow knight.

Thinking about picking that up in the sale. How is it compared to timespinner?

What about more GTA runs since all the old ones are claimed on youtube?

They aren't too long either so wont take up too much time or eat into other playthroughs

Well, we don't actually know if its allowed or not. I made a nomination for a specific type of play type based in the game and someone else suggested hard mode. For all we know, both are not allowed and would be ignored if they made it far enough. For all the times the event has happened, there rules aren't stringent enough for us to really know. Maybe in the future, the event will continue to improve so we know things concretely.

When people ask you to play PS2 games and you say you have no way to capture the video from old consoles, why don't you emulate them? You only need to own the game. You don't even need to own the console.

He said he's going to finish BM when Xen is added. Now if he actually does it...

Never mind. He also said he enjoyed the Code Vein demo and is excited to play the full game.

Which one is that? I thought it was "The Witcher 3", but I don't see it in your post.

He mentioned in the OP the idea of introducing new ways of playing, (even mentioning Dark Souls), so it should be allowed, although this isn't something new. That was the whole point of his magic-run, and this concept was mentioned way back, I think.

Games with different conditions should also count as different nominations, (E.g: A "DS-Greatsword run" should be nothing like a "DS-No weapons run"), if you dismiss this, the entire premise of the event loses its meaning.

When I referenced Witcher 3, it was someone else asking for hard mode that I was using for an example. I didn't nominate it, but did nominate Deus Ex: Human Revolution.  Since Deus Ex: HR can be completed without killing anyone but bosses (and a trophy/achievement is attached to it), I nominated a pacifist run.

I'm just uncertain what he will really accept as a new way of playing. Hard mode of a game he might not think of as an interesting variable or a no kill run may not be interesting enough to him either. I'm hopeful but skeptical on this stuff. Him doing something much more challenging than normal has a different kind of appeal that I think it'd be nice to see.

I know it was banned a while ago but I can't remember the why of Code Vein being denied. I thought I recalled him being interested in it.

Something about that people only want to see him suffer playing Souls game. Apparently a random idiot told him that (silent majority I assume) so it must be true. That's why people didn't want to see Sekiro NG+, not because the game sucks. True fans want to see positive things like the vest. No one from the silent majority asks for Code Vein. Maybe it would be different if Derich asked.

He said people asked him to play NG+ in Dark Souls. So he played NG+ in Sekiro. People obviously didn't care. But that somehow confirms they only want to see him suffer.

A lot of people mentioned Nier, but everyone wants something different: we have endings B&C; true ending, (ending E); and just "Nier".

Just wait until it doesn't get to the voting-thread, because the nominations are too dispersed.


Also:

https://nierautomata.wiki.fextralife.com/Endings+Guide

Maybe I should vote for Nier, (All endings, from A-Z). I wonder how many replays that could get, without good planning on what to choose, (and apparently there might be a 27th ending, I should also add that one).

Nier and Nier:Automata aren't the same game. Nier:A has 2 major endings, the rest is meaningless. Everyone simply wants him to finish Nier:A, that's not hard to understand. He only played half of the game.

Which ones?

Endings A to E are the full game. Only route B requires you to replay some stuff. C and D are the main endings, based on your choice. If you get C, you only need to replay the final battle to get D, and vice versa. E is a minigame at the credits.

You play it the first time, you get ending A. You restart the game, you get ending B. You restart the game (you continue after ending B), you get ending C. You replay the last battle, you get ending D and E.
