HIGH SCORE 2020

The first year of the new decade is over, and I'd like to announce some overall winners (and winning forums) from all the contestants and points of 2020. The german language forums already got their high scores last week, so now it's about time for the english communities.

As this quiz is a competition among several online forums (23 in total!), I'd like to explain how you score points for your forum.

Untitled SCORE HIGH
If you make it to the top 10 in any of the quizzes, you gather between one and five points for your forum.

Untitled ENDURANCE
Frequent participation also gets you (between one and four) points for your forum, that's how you can contribute even without lots of nerd knowledge.

Details on points and medals: https://i.imgur.com/H3cKDnJ.png

Alright, this is how the participating forums have made it through the year:

Untitled

4py = 4Players
can = Canard PC
eab = English Amiga Board
gav = Gaming Village
gpo = Gamepro Discord
gsg = Gamers Global
gms = Gamestar
hcg = hardcore gaming 101
lgs = last game standing
m!g = M!Games
mtc = Metacouncil
mmx = Multimediaxis
mnc = altes maniac
ntl = NintendoLife
pcx = PCX
pop = PowerPlay
rta = ResetEra
rtc = Retro Canteen
rpg = RPG Maker MV
sh2 = Shock²
spz = Spazio PC
vgz = Videogameszone

                                            • *

A round of applause, 4th place for the NintendoLife!

That's the biggest year-on-year gain in the entire table, you were on place 17 in the previous year, so good job.

There were five new forums last year: the Canard PC, Gamers Global, last game standing, Shock² and the Spazio PC. Welcome! There was also the "Gaming Village", but that's the (already participating) exiled community of the shut down website "Gaming Universe". The "Dialogoption" Community has been switched off for months, just as a zombie does it still participate in the ranking. The "Gamepro" Forum has been shut down as well, survivors have split between a Discord Channel and the sister community "Gamestar".

You really liked the "Five Themes" and the "Frankensteins", but seems like the "zoom-out quiz" was a bit controversial. Got it.

Lots of thanks to all of you for participating - if there weren't hundreds of people playing, I would have stopped long ago. So thanks for making this fun for me too.

In a few weeks a new season will start.

Thanks for this year of fun quizzing, @Mr_Horizon!
I think that no matter how skilled (=how much of a game nerd) you may be, anyone in the top ranks will have put up an effort into plugging those holes to get closer to a perfect month.. I know I went full-on OCD on some of the pictures.

I really like that we went up so far as a forum. I didn't understand the point system at first, as the images aren't working but checked on resetera: @Dogorilla passed the 30 consistent month mark to get to four points!? That's serious dedication, too. No one on resetera has the same four points for frequent participation!

lifer

Dogorilla

@lifer Oh I'm surprised nobody on resetera has been participating for as long as I have, but I guess I have been doing it for a while now
Thanks again to @Mr_Horizon for all the effort you put into these quizzes!

Out of curiosity, what would a perfect score be for the whole year?

Usually a perfect score is between 250 and 260, depending on how many rounds with bonus points were there. But in 2020 we had the zoom-out quiz... if you had recognised every single game on the first zoom level, that round would have gotten you 75(!) points. No one got even close to that of course, but because of that round the maximal score for the last season was 307.

You are both very welcome!

And about getting the 4 points for endurance... yes you need to play for 30(!) consecutive rounds, and a total of 12 people have that bonus at the moment. Dogorilla is at 34 rounds, and Red XIII from the M!Games community is the most faithful of them all, with a crazy 56.

I'm glad I'm able to contribute to the overall forum score somehow despite my fairly average gaming knowledge!
