Hello and thanks for your interest in the Unsanctioned Unofficial Game Pass Game Club. If you don't know what it is you can see more about the Game Club here. There is also where you can suggest games for future cycles, though this current vote will stay with the games listed below.

To vote in this thread simply list your top two choices with one labeled choice 1 and the other labeled choice 2. Choice 1 gets 3 points and choice 2 gets 1 point. The game with the highest point count wins. If there is a tie then I will break it, but I will not be voting otherwise.

You can vote even if you have not participated in the Game Club (and voting does not obligate you to participate but we ask that you not vote if you have no interest in participating) and you do not need to vote to participate in this or future cycles. You are also free to vote for games you are interested in and not participate if that game does not win, though it's more fun if people are willing to try games they may not be initially interested in.

Voting will close on September 12, when the results will be announced. I will tabulate the votes then so you may change your vote at any time prior by editing your post. Please do not make multiple voting posts in this thread, though discussion is encouraged. You can feel free to campaign for the game you want to win and make arguments why it is the best choice.

Games for which there appears to be interest will remain on the list in subsequent weeks but may be cycled out if we reach a point where there are too many nominated game for orderly voting. Games removed from the list will remain eligible to be nominated for future cycles at which point they will be put back on the list.

NOMINATED GAMES:

You Suck at Parking (Vehicle obstacle racing game where the goal is to park. Approximately 9 hours long.)

Shadow Warrior 3: Over the top FPS game continuing the revival of the irreverent Shadow Warrior Series (Approximately 5.5 hours long)

Ghost Song: Metroidvania where you explore a creepy and dead world. Very much leans to the Metroid side. (Approximately 9 hours long)

Infinite Guitars: A cross genre rhythm game RPG where you use the power of music to save the world (Approximately 7.5 hours long)

Amnesia: The Bunker: The latest in the Amnesia series of games where you hide from things that go bump or sploosh in the night and try to escape with your life and your sanity (Approximately 5 hours long)

The Big Con: An adventure game where you scam and steal your way across the American landscape of the 1990s. Will there be Zima? Probably not. (Approximately 4 hours long.)

Eastern Exorcist: 2D action combat game based on Chinese mythology. Somewhat janky with a dodgy translation. (Approximately 5 hours long.)

Solar Ash: Extremely stylized 3D platforming adventure game by the makers of Hyper Light Driver (approximately 5.5 hours long).

Gris: A very stylized 2D platforming experience with unique graphical style and lots of critical acclaim (approximately 3.5 hours long.)

Quake II: A classic first-person shooter remastered and updated for current gen gaming machines. (approximately 7.5 hours long.)

Venba: Narrative cooking game about an Indian family (approximately 1.5 hours long.)

A Short Hike: An acclaimed narrative game about hiking up a mountain. (approximately 1.5 hours long.)

Broforce: Action platformer with destructible levels starring parodies of famous action heroes. (approximately 7 hours long.)

Serious Sam Siberian Mayhem: Throwback FPS featuring tons of enemies and creative weapons. (approximately 4.5 hours long.)

Battletoads (2020): 2D game with variety of gameplay styles including beat 'em up and other sections. Critically divisive. (Approximately 4 hours long.)

This is a difficult one. Usually I can do the math on the votes but I've run this several times and the numbers keep giving the same answer. It's going to be Balan Wonderworld, which is not even on Game Pass.

@zombiepie: As someone who has gotten to the end of Balan Wonderworld let me tell you that that's WAY too much to pay for Balan Wonderworld.
