Oh right, @Ronnie. Is this the Game Boy Mega Man game you're referring to?

Yeesh! I knew Americans got that cover, but how come Ronnie saw it as well? I had the one Vileplume posted.

On an related question, why did Americans insist in replacing perfectly fine covers? American Kirby's got nothin' on American Mega Man.

Nominations are now closed.

Before I post the shortlist, I should point out that only 10 games got 2 or more nominations. Naturally, we can't have only 10 games and there's not much point in nominations if we end up putting every game on there.
I planned for such an occasion, I got together with @Dcubed to decide on 5 games that only got 1 nomination that we decided should get through. Seeing as both of us did not nominate any of the games that got 1, we can be as impartial as possible.

Spoiler
  • Donkey Kong
  • Final Fantasy Adventure
  • Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru (For The Frog The Bell Tolls)
  • Game Boy Camera
  • Kirby's Block Ball
  • Kirby's Dream Land
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
  • Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge
  • Metroid II: Return of Samus
  • Mole Mania
  • Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow
  • Super Mario Land
  • Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
  • Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3
  • Tetris

So, with that, it's time for the final votes.

  • Voting must be done via Private Messages sent to me. This will help to prevent any possible tactical voting.
  • Everyone must choose 3 games to vote for. They also must be ordered from favourite to third favourite.
  • It'd be great if you could explain why you chose a game in the PM. I can then use these in the article that will go up on the N-Europe front page.
  • I reserve the right to both use and not use someone's reasons why they chose a game.
  • I will abstain from these votes and act as a tiebreaker. If two games tie, I'll decide which game comes out on top.

Voting closes on the 13th of April. Remember to keep what games you voted for secret.

Enjoy! And here's to the next one. :)

Excellent article. Except for my callous use of "arse". That was crass of me.

I'm bummed one of my top choices didn't break the Top 10, but I'm guessing it was a lot of people's 4th favourite game.

@Dcubed did the same thing with the #1 pick.

You couple of potty mouths!

Great article and can't really argue with the top 10. Surprised Castlevania didn't make the list though

Surprised that Pokemon didn't make the top 10 considering how many nominations it got.

Funny that you mentioned Castlevania, it garnered quite a few nominations but got absolutely no votes when it came down to the wire. It seems that while people would happily class it as a top tier game. No-one here would state it as one of their favourite games.

In contrast, Castlevania 3 got one 2nd place vote.

That was probably the most surprising thing from the NES votes.

Anyway, I know @S.C.G said it before. But I want to thank you all for helping me get this top ten list together. The comments I got were very nice to read and while there was no way I could put every comment on the article, I hope no-one felt particularly left out.

I'm pretty sure I put it as my 3rd game (which would still put it behind CVIII, but still)... Like I said, it was probably 4th place for a lot of other people.

The NES one is over, but the Game Boy vote is still going.

Oooooooooooh! That would explain why Pokémon didn't make it into the top 10 NES games.

This is why I can never be 100% on if you're serious.

It's the last day for you to vote for the Game Boy Shortlist games.

So once again, I'm gonna mention those of you who nominated games, but haven't yet voted.

@Mandalore @bob @Vileplume2000 @Ronnie @RedShell @Shorty @Ike 

If you don't vote, how do you expect to complain later?

Just remember that you don't have to give descriptions for why you chose a game if you can't be bothered.
