General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

And I think S needs to be Sir Fred. Controversial, perhaps, but such a great game.
Noooo! Sabre Wulf! Sabre Wulf!
What's wrong with you people, S is clearly Starquake.

I think the only choice I'm not conflicted with is ZZoom and only because I wasn't a fan of Zombie Zombie.
Better than Zynaps?
Well now I have none. Dammit.

Guys, we need to think outside the box in order to find a way forward on this one, yet maintain a proactive synergy. Perhaps someone could suggest some innovative strategies in order to elucidate a consensus?

However, I'm not budging on Manic Miner or R-Type.

EDIT - Zynaps surely?

A voting thread for each letter surely?

So we can easily have it sorted out within a year!

Let's name the main games for a certain letter and see. For example, as to P, I see:


Pang, Paperboy, Pentagram, Penetrator, Phantom Club, Pheenix, Pyjamarama and Ping-Pong (Konami's Ping Pong, actually!).

I'd go for Pyjamarama.

Does the poll functionality on these forums allow people to add new options? 'Cos I can foresee people saying "hang on, you forgot...".

No once a poll is set it's set.

I think building up a list as we are, that can then be refined works, as long as M and R don't change of course.
