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

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 (nine months 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.

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

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.

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

It's a new era when I'm not bookmarking/responding every thread on ilg :(

just came to check if coint and plick had happened this year because i'd forgotten about it, looking forward to it then (i should be able to vote this year unlike last time)
