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 May 20, 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.

@bigsocrates: Do I vote with my heart or with the devil on my shoulder?

If nobody else votes we're going to have spent a month playing baby games for the lulz, and I don't even know what this club is anymore or even what it ever was. Battletoads was supposed to be the nadir. Instead it was a waypoint on the route to the bottom, with Lil Gator Game being a false dawn.

I feel like this is somehow my fault.

@chamurai: You mean because you nominated and voted for baby games in pursuit of lulz?

I promise that next time I'll nominate/vote for a "big kid" game and not be influenced by my 1 year old's recent enjoyment of children's programming on Netflix.

@chamurai: Don't blame your 1-year-old. Children are not alibis. "He was a bad influence on me." YOU DON'T NEED A BAD INFLUENCE! YOU'RE BAD TO THE BONE.

But ultimately the responsibility lies with everyone who voted or chose not to vote. You are just one frog. You don't have the power to damn us on your own. We all go down together.

I'm leaving this open today, not out of personal animus towards Bluey (I am, of course, ALWAYS completely impartial) but because I'd like to get more than one vote.
