just gave bad north a spin it's v cool, might've tossed it some points if i had played it in time (also available on the Mac btw)

remake but the original was never nominated (or placed, obv)

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Monday, 15 April 2019 17:11 (seven months ago) link

fantastic game - great music, humor, the gameplay is fun, challenging (but not impossible) lots of secrets, etc. stood out even in a year with a lot of exceptional platformers.

Mordy, Monday, 15 April 2019 17:12 (seven months ago) link

possibly the best 2d platformer ever but i don't like to vote for rereleases alas

ciderpress, Monday, 15 April 2019 17:13 (seven months ago) link

OOOH, BANANA.

Snark aside, excited to be a part of C+P this year!

Audrey Tautoulogy (Leee), Monday, 15 April 2019 17:13 (seven months ago) link

maybe i should rank my all time 2d platformers bc i'm pretty sure it's not the best ever but it's still excellent

Mordy, Monday, 15 April 2019 17:13 (seven months ago) link

another game that will be on this list is up there too

ciderpress, Monday, 15 April 2019 17:15 (seven months ago) link

sorry for the bad screen, there wasn't much out there and i didn't have time to get/play/screen the game for this poll. to the voter, tell us what it is??

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Monday, 15 April 2019 17:23 (seven months ago) link

looks like a puzzle game from the pic

that's my vote. this is a cute and well made rpgmaker game kind of in the vein of a undertale or early pokemon or earthbound. nothing super novel about it, it's just a lot better than what you come to expect out of rpgmaker stuff.

ciderpress, Monday, 15 April 2019 17:36 (seven months ago) link

The Guides Axiom -- I'm the voter. It's a "guess the passcode" style riddle game. The main reasons I like it are that there are hidden puzzles, and that some puzzles require information from previous puzzles. It's a step above other games of its type. Con: it isn't finished -- it stops at around puzzle 70 out of 100.

The internet loves this game but this is only one of a handful of times that I've seen it mentioned on ILX.

Audrey Tautoulogy (Leee), Monday, 15 April 2019 18:05 (seven months ago) link

monster hunter world is just a MMO in disguise you can't fool me i've been done with that shit for a decade and not going back

should've given it some points as a proxy vote for my sister. Overcooked is good coop hangout time.

don't mock my smock or i'll clean your clock (silby), Monday, 15 April 2019 18:23 (seven months ago) link

i bet that this game is a ton of fun if you can find other ppl to play w/ at a similar skill level to your own but the way i play it (w/ my kids) it's mostly just frustrating

Mordy, Monday, 15 April 2019 18:23 (seven months ago) link

tell your kids to git gud mordy

don't mock my smock or i'll clean your clock (silby), Monday, 15 April 2019 18:24 (seven months ago) link

I voted for Overcooked. I love how rage-inducing it is when you suck, and how great it feels to perform well as a team ... if you git good.

these are not all of the possible side effects (Karl Malone), Thursday, 18 April 2019 03:26 (six months ago) link

solid results! Thanks Will for running this. Here's my ballot

I haven't played Dead Cells, Obra Dinn or Into the Breath yet, but I look forward to playing them.

adam the (abanana), Friday, 19 April 2019 07:58 (six months ago) link

30 /// Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team
22 /// Katamari Damacy Reroll
18 /// Tetris Effect
15 /// Fortnite Battle Royale
10 /// Yoku's Island Express
5 /// Super Smash Bros Ultimate

JimD, Friday, 19 April 2019 12:07 (six months ago) link

If I'd played more games last year I might've added to the Obra Dinn votes - I had a few minor reservations but overall loved that game.

emil.y, Friday, 19 April 2019 13:36 (six months ago) link

Yeah, my enthusiasm for Obra Dinn was only slightly dampened by some interface/navigation annoyances, but it’s one that I’ll be recommending for a long time.

And as good as Dead Cells is, there’s probably going to be another 20 games like it over the next few years. Obra Dinn, unless something very unexpected happens, is unlikely to be replicated anytime soon.

Is this for the first C+P where indies swept the top 5?

Audrey Tautoulogy (Leee), Friday, 19 April 2019 16:52 (six months ago) link

we're all getting old.

Nhex, Friday, 19 April 2019 16:53 (six months ago) link

they're the only realm where everyone's on the same page

ciderpress, Friday, 19 April 2019 17:16 (six months ago) link

fuck, hollow knight finished... 6th last year? how did i let that one slide? i hope the voters were all new voters. if not i tsk at you. TSK TSK TSK
2 years ago was a near-sweep of the top for indies. inside, dark souls 3, witness, stardew, salt & sanctuary. indies always do very well here, if not for borderlands, marvel puzzle quest, dark souls, and a couple of other cult classics over here it'd almost always be all indies!

also i forgot to post my own ballot.

YAKUZA 6: The Song of Life - 26
YAKUZA KIWAMI 2 - 25
Tetris Effect - 15
Spider-Man - 10
Hole.io - 4
Far Cry 5 - 4
Valkyria Chronicles 4 - 4
Red Dead Redemption 2 - 4
Into the Breach - 4
Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee - 2
Octopath Traveler - 2

ty 4 playing everyone! see you next year! (or sooner if i run a summer/fall generations poll!)

they're not booing you, sir, they're shouting "Boot Edge Edge" (Will M.), Friday, 19 April 2019 18:36 (six months ago) link

i did think something was off about Hollow Knight, it makes sense since it didn't come to consoles until 2018

Nhex, Friday, 19 April 2019 18:46 (six months ago) link

yeah it had a bigger hype cycle when it came out on switch than when the original pc version came out the previous year

ciderpress, Friday, 19 April 2019 18:48 (six months ago) link

also PCs are for powerpoint

... and the crowd said DESELECT THEM (||||||||), Friday, 19 April 2019 18:53 (six months ago) link

dark souls 3 is indie?

Last year, I played the intro section of Hollow Knight on PC and I may have given it some points. I played the rest of the game on PS4 this year.
