October Game of the Month nominations
Hello everyone, Welcome to the game of the month nomination topic.


Here is how it works:
Each member gets to nominate 1 game that was not in the top 20 in sales. The ineligible list can be found at the end of the post.
This is done to ensure that we are choosing games that have not already been played extensively by most of us.
The topic will remain open for one week (ending September 8th).
At which point, I will write each of the nominations on a piece of paper, and draw 5 total out of a bowl.
Those 5 will then be put to a vote for one week (ending September 15th) to decide the official "Nintendo 64 Forever Game of the Month". You may nominate a game already chosen by another member if you wish too, but only one piece of paper per game nominated will be put in to the bowl. If someone has already nominated a game you wished to nominate, please consider going with your 2nd choice. Those nominated that are not drawn out as well as the 4 that lose the vote will be eligible for re-nomination next month if you so choose.

In case anybody is lost here, the idea is for you to play the winning game for a bit, and then
comment on your thoughts after playing. We used to discuss things like game play, graphics, sound, controls, replay value, as well as how the game has stood the test of time. This is a great chance to discover fun games you perhaps missed out on.

If you do not own the winning game; perhaps consider borrowing, buying, renting (anybody still rent n64 games?), or find another way of playing (emulation) or perhaps even check for it on the virtual console.
Any questions? Just ask away...

(Sorry posting from my phone, couldn't get it to show up right)
I once again nominate Road Rash

Conkers Bad Fur Day
Now open for discussion :) I have yet to see this game for sale locally. I have wanted to play it for years though.

September Game of the Month
I guess we should just go ahead and declare bad fur day the winner so we can move forward.

Tron N64
That is amazing! Great job!

Post When You Buy or Sell Any Game
After a long dry spell, I found Midnight Clud LA for PSP in a trade in suv yesterday.

September Game of the Month
alxbly, if you would like, I perhaps just turn this back over to you? (I think GotM was your deal first anyways?) I like that you are asking questions about changing the method of selection. Whatever the popular vote is on selection, I am for it.

I do not mind doing it, but I feel slightly hypocritical, being as I haven't gotten to participate since March.

Games you've finished in 2011
Let's see. I have finished Pokemon Black and Uncharted 2 this year. That is way below my average, but given the fact that I now have a kid, I am happy to have any time to play games.

As far as what I will finish:

Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Assassin's Creed II (If I can ever get done with MHF U)
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood (hopefully)
Fallout New Vegas (I am only about 1/2 way right now I think)

What games are you playing?
I moved on from Monster Hunter 2 to Monster Hunter Unite. I get to play a little every now and then ;)

September Game of the Month
Well thanks for going ahead and posting, alxbly. I do still make it a point to come around on the dates relating to Game of the Month. I am actually on most times once or twice a week, just don't post much :-/

Anyhow, Road Rash :D
