I got tagged in this topic and my heart jumped... Damn. Well, I can't be disappointed in my own performance here, just disappointed that other people did better than me. I put by far more effort into this contest than probably anything I've done on this site ever. Sucks that I missed the MGS2 cover, because that probably would have changed my answer for the mod for that one. Can I ask what my numerical total was?

Most surprising result is that KookyCouture's favorite game was not Sims 2. How did anyone avoid that trap??

Also this.

Wow, didn't expect to get everything right :o It was a fun contest for sure!

For everyone that's interested, here's my strategy:

General approach:
- Researching old topics
- Looking at a mods profile
- Searching for "GameFAQs + Modname + Game" (took me so much time... all the possible combinations...)

I think most of the games were fairly easy to guess because of the distinctive art styles.

All in all, I found the following reasons why a specific game should be a specific mod's favorite:

Shotgunnova, gmo7987, spartan99ruler - https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/10-ask-the-mods/76007698
Raptor LC, MMZ - https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/10-ask-the-mods/75203023

Zanzenburger - https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/631516-wii-u/64755676 -> posts about Metroid Prime
KookyCouture - Only Mod that posts on the Okami board, allocated KookyCouture before I even figured out the Sims 2 picture

So now only WaffleHouseJK and Seaman9999 were left in addition to the two Zelda games. This honestly was 50/50 that I got them right, I just allocated them randomly.

Also my profile description would have been a pretty good give away for this one too.

Congrats, Aldarion! That's awesome, definitely well-deserved. XD

Thanks for detailing your method too, I was especially curious how anyone managed to avoid the KookyCouture/Sims 2 one.

And thanks as always to AssultTank for hosting and yoshifan1 for sponsoring! Really excited if you do have a bigger idea for next month, a break after all this would be 100% understandable though.

If it's not too much trouble, could I know my score too? (I'll probably end up calculating it myself later if not, so no pressure).

That's very impressive. I did pretty much the same thing but I wasn't so patient about it, mostly because if I had already found out that a mod had stated X game was their favourite in a board like Ask the Mods I didn't bother searching for them like the other ones. If I had found out MMZ's favourite game was Mega Man X my answers would've made a drastic turn and they would've resembled yours way more closely.

I also correctly guessed WaffleHouseJK and Seaman9999's favourite games purely by chance. Congratulations again.

Wow... seriously well done. I honestly didn't remember ever saying VC was my favorite game, so I figured that would have thrown most people off, since I usually talk mostly about Final Fantasy games (and own the FF board).

Congrats to all the winners and everyone who participated.

@AssultTank, how does the ~80 entries compare to a "normal" month? I'm wondering if the bigger prize enticed more people to participate that wouldn't have before.
