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 January 15, 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.)

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.)

It would be great to get some fresh nominations and any that are listed before people vote can be included in this cycle.

@chamurai: No. I can add it maybe but I'm a bit hesitant because of the length. We aim for games that are under 10 hours generally. It's not a hard rule but 29 hours is a lot. We've talked about relaxing and changing some of the rules and that's a discussion worth having but I think we'd need to give more than 2 weeks for that. I don't know what other people's thinking is.

@bigsocrates: Oh dang I didn't realize it was that long. I was just looking at the Game Pass and looking at what games I had on Steam that I haven't played yet. Yeah, if it's that long then nevermind.

1. Steamworld Build - I am currently in an Against the Storm rabbit hole and would love to dip into this game to compare them. ATS doesn't seem to have an endpoint or I would recommend that game.

2. Rollerdrome - Bakalar has been positive enough on this game to make me want to check it out.

@allthedinos: I don't think "no end point" is disqualifying for a game to be on the club, but we haven't done any games without a console version.
