    And if you rate a sig "A+" because it has a RE character in it, then you're not included as one who rates based on a general set of guidelines. I'm talking about how good lighting, flow, depth, etc, are. Nothing against you, just pointing that out.
    I was merely pointing out that it works both ways, the 'genre' loving even if their is set guidelines, whether it be in sig competitions or in what this comp is, or any comp with suggestive works. Know what I mean?

    We may need a bit more information, to be sure of what being a judge actually means. Do they just come late to the party and begins to judge, or are they in an active process throughout the competition? Do they plan too? Do they decide the rules and guidelines too? What do they decide and what do they not decide? Because if you are looking for a help with the coordination too, I will gladly be of assistance.

    I'll throw my name in as well I guess. I think I'll make a game with zombies because I'm guaranteed easy money then as everyone knows you just add zombies to anything and it sells. That or I'll be sure to include only gold trophies for completing each level and also a plat. It'll be like combining Trine 2 with The Walking Dead. Heck maybe you'll be able to get all the trophies before even completing each level! Genius!!!

    This is an absolutely wonderful idea. I probably won't be able to create anything, but I do very much look forward to see what others come up with. I could help in other ways though, just gotta let me know.

    I had some great ideas a couple of years back, but I forgot them :| and I'm not creative now, so I won't join.

    But cool, I'd love it if this site made a studio and made all these games.

    Sounds like a good idea. Jack has raised a good point though. I think you'd need some set rules as for what goes into an entry so everyone is entering the same but with different ideas. I'd also suggest that it needs some grounding in what could actually be done with a game for this gen.

    I'd love to but I wouldn't have time to enter.

    My plan was to have the judging based on overall creativity in story and trophy list. I'm open to options though and I think it's a great idea someone gave that the judges join together to help come up with the rules. I want this to be as fair as possible but also leave room for your creativity. As for the controls and multiplayer you can include that in your game, but everyone should keep in mind that to win the game needs to make sense and should be grounded in terms of what we can do today in games. I hope that makes sense.

With the sig competition you used as an example, the same 'genre favoritism' is still in place with that. I like RE and that sig has Jill in it so that is an A+.

    I think BNecker needs to decide who the judges will be first and then, like you said, develop the 'grading rules' for the competition. Said that, even if there were no set rules, as long as the judges are not biased then it should not be a problem.

    One suggestion I would have is BNecker not be a judge but a collector of the entrants and then give the judges the 'games' without the contestants name attached. This way friendships on the site will not come into play. As long as people don't advertise their game around, the judges can base their review more unbiasedly.
    I agree with you Lasombra. That is a great idea. I would love to judge, but it would be difficult collecting everything and trying to stay unbiased. Also, you are approved for being a judge.

    Even though I have a really great idea, I think I'm gonna try to sign up as a judge (if I get accepted, that is). If you need a sort of resumé or something I would happily provide something along those lines.
    I was thinking that the artistic part would only be something extra that you can optionally do. The judging won't be based on that, but can be used to make your presentation look good and to make things more fun. I think it's similar to some competitions to create the best presentation and people can choose to use Powerpoint to create a presentation. Thank you for your interest, you are approved to be a judge.

    I would definitely appreciate getting the judge's input and help with planning. I want everything to be fair and make sense and I think that having everyone's input will help with that.

    Yes, I agree. The judging will be based on games that are grounded in our current time.

    Also, to everyone else that posted to this thread thank you so much for your interest. I'm really looking forward to this competition. I can't wait to see everyone's creativity! I think this will be a lot of fun.

    Well, if no one has any problems with it then I think that would be okay. I was only worried that people who did it solo might think it was unfair, but if everyone is cool with teams being allowed then there shouldn't be a problem. What does everybody think?

    Why not have a winner picked by judges and a users vote? It'd be a nice way to keep those not taking part or judging to still be involved.

    I agree with him a bit. Why don't each judge pick their favorite and let the community vote on the winner
    K? Thanks

    That sounds like a good idea. I'd love to get more members involved. I think that would be a great way to keep the thread alive while the competition is going on and then people can give feedback, comments, etc.

    Thanks and I agree. It does sound good. At first I wasn't sure how this could work, but if I did it like this it should work smoothly:

    To keep things unbiased I could collect everyone's game ideas by a certain cut-off time. I would then number them and keep the names private when I post everyone's submissions on the thread. The judge's could then vote on their favorites and then the community could vote on the games that were the judge's favorites. After the votes are in the winner will be announced.

    Let me know what you think.

    Sounds like it could be a fun idea. Could our vision of a remake count? For example how would my version have differed to the version that was released [if applicable]?

    I just updated the OP with some changes that I've made to the competition. Thank you everyone for your interest and for sharing your thoughts and ideas!

    Sure, I have no problem with that as long as your vision is original and not just a few tweaks of a game that is already out. Also, the trophy list must be your own and not from the original game.

    Personally, I would love to do something like this for the Matrix game. I never played the PS2 game, but have heard it wasn't all that great. I would love to come up with my own PS3 version of the game with trophies and all and really make it as epic as the movies were. This won't be my example game, but maybe I'll share it one day.

    Awesome, thx and if you're lacking in the creative area maybe you could team up with someone and brainstorm together.
