OK, I encourage people to at least try out Sky Skipper.  If it is picked, I am almost certain it would be a pretty popular game.  It has things most classic games don't have.  The game is less than 20 minutes long(this is because the 8th board is a quasi killscreen.  You have to lose at least one man in order to pass the board, and since you only get four total men throughout the game the farthest you can get is the 11th board).  It actually rewards speed running despite not being a racing game(you get bonus points based on how much fuel you have.  The quicker you play the level the more fuel you have).  It's a fun game, and I hope people will give it a chance.

Uhm, you can't see it after you vote either.

The tournament organizer reserves the right to veto shitty games. Don't pick shitty games.

Loving this rule right now

We should almost have a rule where only 1 game of a specific series can feature in the same contest. Clones could be included here too

i.e. get rid of one of the twin cobras, pacmans, raidens.

Just a thought.

My stance is,  If you are going to make that rule  make that rule for the next contest BEFORE voting starts.  I am not against the rule, I just don't want to see that rule implemented for this contest.  Doing it for this contest is sort of pulling the rug underneath people.  People are already practicing on these games, and then to do that garbage, I really have a problem with.
Like I said, this should have been brought up BEFORE voting.

Well I probably wouldn't call it garbage but yea retroactively adding this rule is not a great idea.

To be fair, look at what happened once joke/non-entrant votes were removed; the game list notably changed. Who knows if the games you're practicing are even going to be in now that the gap was narrowed and things were made more interesting.

We can only pray that trend continues and we somehow escape from having to scoreplay in NBA Jam and Thunder Force AC Twin Cobra 2.
