Vote For The Top 25 RPGs of All Time!

I'm announcing a new, interactive project open to all readers, subscribers, and bloggers of any of the sites and friends of the RPG Bloggers Network.

I'm looking for people's lists of the RPGs that have had the brought the most influence, entertainment, and fun to their experience in the gaming hobby. You can rank up to 25 games, but if you don't want to do that many or don't have that many, please rank at least 10. I will be tabulating points wherein a 1st-place vote gets 25 points, a 2nd-place vote gets 24, on down to a 25th-place vote getting 1 point (not unlike the AP Football poll). I realize this isn't a scientific process by any means, but the entire point is to generate some community discussion, and maybe point folks towards some games they otherwise wouldn't have picked up.

I plan to go live with this on my blog Monday, and will keep it open for 2 weeks. Submission deadline is April 20, 2009. After that, I will announce the winners. I want at least 50 submissions to make this as nice a sampling as possible, which is where you all come in. If you do submit a list, I'd also like (but don't need) some short quotes or comments on games you feel very strongly about, and with your permission, I may use them (credited) when I post the final results. (Oh, and if you have a specific edition of a game in mind, please note that when submitting your list).

Lists can be sent to mail.rpgblog(at)gmail.com.

If you have a blog or know some blog readers who might like to send in their lists, please point them to this article, as participation level is going to be big for this. I'm asking for your help in getting the word out. I'm also looking for a few game publisher sponsors, as I'd like to have at least 3 solid pdf prize packages to be given out by random drawing from the pool of those who submit lists. Thanks very much, and I look forward to seeing some great lists soon!

Hi, Unc,
Ard different editions of a game different games? D & D, T & T, and Runequest have all changed quite a bit over the years.

Zachary The First said...

Indeed they have! In those cases where a new edition is not merely a reprint of the previous edition, folks can do separate entries as fitting for each edition.

Sean said...

I'd like to see a similar poll to this for favourite game setting. You know, if you're not doing anything.

vulcanstev said...

Decided to run my list I sent you as blog post unto itself. It's in my queue and should go live on the 14th. I'll provide a link when it does.

Vampir said...

I'd love to participate, but I can't even think of 10 games...

Anonymous said...

I can't wait to see the results! The sad part is that 16 out of the 25 games I submitted are out of print!

It would also be interesting to see the results summarized by genre, in-print/out-of-print, small-press/publisher, and age (from first release).

It would really give some perspective on the industry as a whole.

I'm excited for the results, too!

I'll posting some more updates in a bit--I really want to get to at least 50 entries, and I think we can get there!

Spread the word!

Preservation and promotion of health is achieved through a combination of physical, mental and social well-being, sometimes called "the triangle of health." Health is a positive concept focuses on the social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.
