Reloaded's Top 10 Freeware Games of All-Time
The Nominations

Welcome!  :bleh: :pirate:

AR has hundreds of freeware games on-site. And this year marked the 5th anniversary of AR. To celebrate our anniversary, our our recent new style, AR is holding a poll. We want to know what our fans and members think are the "Top 10 Freeware Games of All-Time".

Here is how this process will work:
Phase 1: Nominations Thread: Fans and members can openly nominate up to 3 games featured on AR
Phase 2: Voting: The games with the highest amount of nomination votes will battle in a poll, and the top 10 will be chosen.

Nomination Process:
User submits 3 freeware games of their choosing. Each game will be given either 3, 2, or 1 point(s) depending on how they are nominated.

Example:
3 Points: Titanium Chef
2 Points: Hairy Harry
1 Point: Puzznic

Now the leader-board:
Titanium Chef - 3 points total
Hairy Harry - 2 points total
Puzznic - 1 point total

As you can see, this is about points, and the amount of votes each game receives. The top 25 games will be in a poll, and then the winning 10 will be crowned. :D

How to nominate:
Post your nominations just like the example above. Remember, the game MUST be on AR, and MUST link to the game's specific page on AR. Here is how you assign points:

  • 3 Points - My favorite
  • 2 Points - Love it
  • 1 Point - Like it

Each user can only submit up to 3 games. If you don't have any other favorites to fill in any empty spots, you can assign the remaining points to your favorite game. So yes, a game can receive all your points if you wish.

Updated leaderboard.

I decided to give each of those games Japo mentioned 1 point each, to see if they get any other votes.  :angry: After all, this is just nominations. The real voting process will be the polls.  :bleh:
