Hey everyone, and welcome to Zelda Dungeon’s Best Zelda Ever 2018 Announcement / Contest Thread. Our list will be published in full on November 2nd and will be a list of the top Legend of Zelda games as chosen by our editors. We will also be doing a giveaway for whoever can best predict our list. Read on for details!
The prize this year will be a Zelda swag bag full of goodies from this year’s E3 and a $20 eShop gift certificate. How do you win? All you need to do is leave a comment in this post of what you think our list is gonna look like. So just to reiterate, not your own favorite list of Zelda games, but what you think the averaged out list of our 20 editors is going to be. At the bottom of this post will be a copy and paste template that you can use to make your prediction!
The way that scoring will work is similar to how the scoring worked for making the list in the first place. A game was scored 18 points for finishing atop an Editors list, 17 for finishing second, 16 third, etc. 18 points for 18 main entry games. Scoring users lists will be similar to this. If you correctly guess the top game, you will receive 18 points. If the game you thought was going to be number 1 actually turns up in the number 5 spot, you will be given 14 points (= points less for 4 spots off). The amount of games that you were off between your predicted spot and its actual spot will be what’s used to deduct points. It’s a system that looks complicated, but is actually super simple and takes care of any potential ties as well.
