Don't we always end up doing it in January? Also just give the number one slot to the horrible goose right now.

we usually run it after the ILM end of year stuff is over, in feburary/march

ciderpress, Tuesday, 24 December 2019 16:12 (one year ago) link

and i hope we're continuing that as i've only just started catching up on 2019 games

I can’t tell if you’re being honest or not and that is damning, I tell you!

I always like to see Coint and Plick but I think Untitled Goose Game is the only new game I've played this year. If I spend more money than I should in the Steam sale, then Baba Is You and/or Dicey Dungeons will join it.

Anyway, hope it runs, up for reading it, probably not up for voting in it.

(S'pose I've played Katamari Damacy Reroll, which may or may not count as a reissue, and which came out in Dec 2018, so is maybe/maybe not eligible on two counts)

(merry xmas ILG btw)

i ended up playing quite a lot unusually for me, mainly because i stopped reading i think. sekiro, excellent, spider-man, dreadful. insight and card of darkness a+. sonic racing ru serious. may vote in this for the first time.

xxxp so is apple arcade worth subbing?

Mordy, Wednesday, 25 December 2019 18:32 (one year ago) link

It's definitely worth doing the trial, and I haven't turned it off yet after a few months. It is super nice to play all these "free"ish new phone games that aren't crippled by free-to-play monetization bullshit. I don't think the first killer Arcade exclusive game is on the platform yet though.

Here's a best of list I was looking at earlier:

worth doing the trial definitely.

Fizzles, Wednesday, 25 December 2019 20:40 (one year ago) link

about to give in soon just to play the third Steven Universe game which is Arcade exclusive for now

Shouldn’t we be doing coint and plick for the decade

I mean that way I’d at least get to participate and have opinions

El Tomboto, Thursday, 26 December 2019 15:41 (one year ago) link

it would be fun to have time to go back and play some older stuff. maybe later in the year?

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 26 December 2019 19:57 (one year ago) link

tomboto otm

in my grand tradition of proposing big ideas that are 50% ok and 45% dumb (and 5% incomprehensible), what about this big dumb idea:

FACT 1: several of the 11 people in the ILG community struggle with coint and plick because we haven't had enough time to play games from the previous year and/or we're waiting for price drops and/or we're playing an AAA open world game that takes at least 110 hours to complete.

SOLUTION 1: imagine a world where coint and plick would cover games from TWO years ago. For example, coint and plick Dec 2020/Jan 2021 would cover games released in 2019, coint and plick Dec 2021/Jan 2022 would cover games from 2020, etc. This would give us all more time to play games, and also allow to conduct coint and plick during the December holiday season, which is the universally preferred approach for annual polls.

COMPLICATING FACT 1: but what would we do this holiday season, if we would have to wait until Dec 2020 to vote on games from 2019? my thumb is already way up my ass, what else can i do in the meantime??

FACT 2: a 2010-19 coint and plick decade poll would rule

SOLUTION 2: we do the decade poll soon (enough time to give people to get their thumbs out of their asses and back onto the d-pad, but soon). then in Dec 2020 we resume the regular annual coint and plick schedule, with the Dec 2020 poll covering 2019 games.

just a thought, but it makes sense to me. i guess the biggest drawback is that maybe it's not as much fun to do an annual poll about games released 1 1/2 - 2 years prior. but...we kind of already do that anyway, so why not push that back a smidge and get us on a more sensible schedule?

But guess what? Nobody gives a toot!😂 (Karl Malone), Thursday, 26 December 2019 21:14 (one year ago) link

Do you what ye like but my vote would still be to have time to think about it, and 2019 games are part of the range we'd be considering anyway.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Thursday, 26 December 2019 22:04 (one year ago) link

feel like you gotta settle 2019 before settling the decade that contains 2019 but i don't really have strong opinions about what we do

ciderpress, Thursday, 26 December 2019 22:19 (one year ago) link

Would definitely jump at the chance to vote for TLOU, so would super a decade poll! But also I've bought a ton of 2019 games so would enjoy participating in that as well.

decade we be good.

four weeks pass...

I'm literally seeing this thread now, I haven't been very on ILX lately sorry everyone :(

Happy to run best of 2019 poll! Only thing I'm not 100% sure is if I can do the literal posts (starting new job) but we can cross that bridge if/when we get there.

I'd also be down to run end of decade but maybe would do that AFTER, like maybe even spring/summer? I'd also like to go back to do more generation polls if anyone remembers those. I know they didn't include pc games really but hey that could be its own poll anyway. Idk hi I'm sort of back everyone
