Original Slime Salad Thread here:
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=61058

Here we go again people.

First, here is the previous Top 30 List for reference:
http://www.jsh.illuminative.org/top_30/top30summer09.html

In order to make the list as COOL as possible, it's nice to get some comments from voters. Please, if you would, submit:
1) Something you like about the game
2) A short reason for why you chose it
3) A poem (haiku) or other short creative work
4) A screenshot of your favorite part of the game
5) A personal experience you had with the game that seems worth mentioning
6) Anything else appropriate
This is OPTIONAL, but it really makes the list look good, so do it if you have the time. The best comments will be published, and there usually isn't much competition so do submit.

BONUS QUESTION: Vote for the five most trippy/surreal/bizarre OHR games.

Rules:
1. Vote for your five-fifteen favorite OHR games/movies/whatever. Lowest number = highest on your favorite list.
2. You may NOT vote for your own game(s).
3. You may not vote for unreleased games. Demos are fine, though.
4. You may not vote twice, including by altnick.
5. Type out the entire name, just in case I don't know what the acronym is.
6. Airship 2600 is banned from this list. Sorry, it's just too good. Additionally, any other vaporware games shouldn't be voted for.
7. Vote for individual games, not entire series. (OHR House, Pitch Black, etc)
8. ALL VOTES ARE TO BE SUBMITTED BY PRIVATE MESSAGES (Slime Salad, Castle Paradox, AIM (JSHtice) only). Do not post your votes on the message board topic, but feel free to discuss games or the poll.

Some general guidelines:
No one cares what you vote for, so don't feel compelled to vote 'in the community's eyes' or for games that you think are good but don't actually like. I want this list to reflect the personal preferences of real OHR users; i.e. I want it to be largely subjective.

How scoring works:
Your number 1 choice gets the most points. The higher the number, the fewer the points. In addition, the number of users who actually voted for the game is taken into account.

I'll post an example vote soon.

Deadline: around NOVEMBER 26, 2009.

Note that due to low (but steadily improving) turnout, the Top 30 voting time has been extended to Christmas Day. If you already voted, you can revise your choices at any time until then.

There are, I think, 11 voters, but most of them only picked 5-8 games, so only 14 games are even on the list


I am shocked and appalled. You lazy sods! Shocked and appalled. Also... I forgot to vote. Even given two months. Opps.

Previously, weren't we given the option to vote either publicly or privately? May I venture to suggest that private-only voting this round was an absolute disaster? Not only for turnout, but I think reading everyone's comments on the games is much more interesting and fun than seeing the total at the end.

Though it was crazy late, I voted anyway, just in case. Says JSH on Slime Salad:

Send any last-minute votes to me ASAP; I am wrapping this up. Whether or not the list is full enough remains to be seen.
