Having seen the reaction to the recent soundtrack articles, I'd rather this community not tear itself apart over something so subjective. I don't imagine box art getting folks as passionate.

But people can get really passionate about their favourite franchise too, though.

That's why I'd go with Best Box Art. A person can still appreciate the cover art even though he or she doesn't like or hasn't played the game, yet.

@WanderingBullet
Best box art would certainly be interesting, I'd be curious how many games make the cut if we eliminated the usual suspects.

Oh, what's that!? A determined looking male holding a firearm / bladed weapon, etc taking centre stage looking in the general direction of the potential buyer? Surely not! What madness is this?
Perhaps one of the narratives goes something like..

"Do you intend to use that weapon in acts of violence, Sir?"

"Not at all, I was concerned someone might injure themselves on finding it, so I am in the process of removing it for the safety of all."

"Aha, jolly good chap! What a wonderful idea, allow me to shake your hand.."

The weapon was destroyed soon after and peace was enjoyed by all, along with a nice cup of tea. The end.

Looks like best derrière is actually 3rd place @kyleforrester87 but a very strong showing, nonetheless. Best Box Art also has a lot of support, but the leader is actually:

Best Video Game Franchise

I am going to do my best to administer the poll, serve as the one to organize the structure, make judgement if conflict arises, tally votes and report them, and just overall make sure the poll gets done in a relatively fair, timely, and decent manner.

I cannot, however, serve as an expert on the subject matter. I will likely need community consultation to help tease out a few minor details, I reckon.
And I will rely on @themcnoisy poll grandmaster to help with the promotional aspect and be the chairman of the board, so to speak 😄

I figure we take a little time to discuss exactly what constitutes a “Video Game Franchise” and how you all anticipate we should define the topic (minimum number of games in the franchise required? Minimum number of years of existence? Limit it to one system? Etc, etc.) and if you have opinions about it.

Fortunately you can find a Wikipedia list that is already created here:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_game_franchises

I don’t think we have to limit ourselves to that list if you all can think of perhaps any that are omitted. But it looks pretty comprehensive to me and is probably a good reference point to start with.

@Th3solution

Just a suggestion, but you could still consider taking 2nd or 3rd place as the next poll if you prefer.
I do wonder if best franchise is really worth the effort and time personally. Take a look at this and it gives a pretty good indication from the start as to what the winner is likely to be:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_best-selling_video_game...

Combining Mario and Super Mario, you're looking at well in excess of a billion sales, nothing else comes anywhere near that. So straight from the off that's a strong bias to contend with, as so many more people would have played at least one of those games. And it's difficult to give critisism to a series with such a huge level of popularity.

Just something to consider.

@Th3solution I second @LieutenantFatman in regards to best franchise. I worry that it’s basically already decided since Zelda and Mario have being going on so long. I guess Soulsborne would count as one and would then be the less obvious winner but if you look at consistency, the big Nintendo tent poles would probably win.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

@LieutenantFatman Was gonna say that with Best Box Art you could also have cover arts from different regions as well like EU, Japan and US but It looks like Best Franchise got the most votes.lol

@Th3solution What is with all the threes and ones in the poll results?

@LieutenantFatman @nessisonett Best selling does not necessarily mean it is the best game franchise though, just that they are popular. Like I personally wouldn't have rate like The Sims, Minecraft or Need for Speed as the best.

And how is Mincraft even a franchise, there has only been one game, just across every system under the sun. I wouldn't class that as a franchise in video game terms.

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

Aye true, but the beauty of running this sort of thing is the vote can be overruled. A bizzare concept but it can be done, haha.

I believe it might be counting that dungeon crawler game that hasn't(?) come out yet and the two telltale series @JohnnyShoulder for Minecraft. I agree that's kinda pushing it 😅


I honestly did think Best rear was going to win so best Franchise certainly came out of nowhere!

@JohnnyShoulder Each three represents a 1st place vote, and the ones represent a 2nd place vote.

@LieutenantFatman @nessisonett So my suggestion might be that we limit it to “best PlayStation franchise”. Meaning a certain number of the series has to have appeared on a PlayStation console. That would throw out Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Halo, etc. And I was going to suggest that overall sales be only a minor consideration. Personal taste, impact on gaming culture, etc would be the heaviest weighted criteria to make your vote. Those were just some of my thoughts.

But I’m open for suggestion, and technically this “pre-poll” to chose the megapoll topic is @themcnoisy ‘s baby still, so if he wants to have a run off between the top three then that’s a solution. The top 3 were pretty close. Box art was most people’s second choice, as you can see in the results there.

Ehh best franchise is gunna be pretty boring, just the usual suspects. Boxart ftw, at least we might get some surprises and learn a bit about games we’ve not heard of.

I’m fine either way.
If both @LieutenantFatman and @kyleforrester87 change their votes from Box Art being their number 2 vote to being their number 1, then the tally changes to:

Box Art = 19 pts
Best Franchise = 19 pts
Backside = 11 pts
Soundtrack = 7 pts

Fancy a tie-breaker run off @themcnoisy ?

Whatever the topics not picked end up being, we can always do another poll when things are quiet again. With FF7R, TLoU2, Avengers, etc around the corner, it’s going to get busy pretty soon though.
