Welcome to 2020, and to really make it the year of the twenty, I thought it would be fun to build some top 20 lists for several of the systems the members of RFGen collect.

Each month, we'll be looking at a different system, and asking for users to submit their votes on what the best games for that system are.

While I understand the stigmata of "Top __" lists as clickbait, on a positive side they can be used as a way bring awareness to some great games that not everyone will be familiar with.

How to participate:

1. Make an ordered list of whatever games are your favorites for the system being covered that month.

-Make your list about what games you think are the best that system has to offer, NOT necessarily the most important. (For example, Super Mario Bros. is one of the most influential games in VG history, but not many would call it a better game than SMB3)

-Also, your list needs to be limited to games you have personally played. Don't include a game just because you've heard it's good, include a game because you know it's good.

-For a few of the games, try to include a few thoughts on why that particular game made your list. That way, those not as familiar with the game can see why it's one they should put on their radar.

2. Personal Message EZ Racer with your ordered list

Just put "Top 20 games for the (whatever system we're covering that month)" in the subject line. Throughout the month, I will be compiling the results, and release a full list based on votes sent in. I will be putting extra weight on games voted for the top of the lists, so please make sure that your games are listed in numeric order. The reasoning behind a private vote is so that each member's vote can be their own, not influenced by what they think others would want.

The voting cutoff each month will be the last day of the month at 11:59 EST.

January's List- Considering all the time put into the NES by RFGen members in 2019 for the NES challenge, it seemed like the perfect system to kick-off as the 1st Top 20 list.

The NES was the beginning to many classic series that are still popular today (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy to name a few). Speaking of series, there isn't a limit to 1 game per series, but keep in mind your list should about the best a system has to offer, so if you think one game in a series is much better than its predecessor, ask yourself if the predecessor is really one of the best on the system?



What do you think the best games are for the NES? Send in your thoughts, and keep an eye out for the month's results.

Question: Should this list include Famicom titles? I for one would prefer to do a separate list for these down the road.

Good to see several excited for this!

As far as Famicom titles, I think it is better to leave those for another list down the road, as not everyone shares the same knowledge of Famicom and NES.

I've got 31 on my list so far... I dont think most will like my list, lot of favorites left off, mostly because I didn't own them when I first got the system, so I didnt play them.

Getting my list narrowed down. Gotta figure out some tough cuts then order them. So hard!

Oh man, I need to do this. I'm terrible at making ranked lists, but I'll have to come up with something. Though I never owned the NES as a kid, I have tons of experience, playing the games at friend's houses, and have since played a bunch more as an adult. Give me a few days to ruminate on this topic...

I'm kind of OCD about keeping a ton of different lists, so I actually started a personal ranked NES list early last year when we started the NES challenge. I'm currently revisiting some games that I haven't played in years and also trying to play through some other games that I think may deserve consideration. It'll probably be late in the month before I actually submit my list.

Got my list narrowed down to 20 finally. Cutting those last 6 titles was rough!! Now the completely scientific task of arranging the order!

I'm going to try to do this one, but I'm guessing it's going to be tough.
