It was top ten. #1 game got 10 points, down to #10 which got 1 point. He gave an extra point I think for every 2 votes a game got.


This is exactly correct. I got the original spreadsheet from elprincipe several years ago, so I have all of the original data.

Here are some interesting stats from the voting:

Only three games received more than 24 first place votes. They were:

1. Super Mario Bros. 3 - 118
2. The Legend of Zelda - 98
3. Tecmo Super Bowl - 52

Super Mario Bros. and Final Fantasy both received 24 first place votes. These five games accounted for 316 first place votes out of a total of 717, so just over 44% of voters selected one of these five games as their top NES game of all time.

If anyone was curious... Dr. Mario is the highest ranked game(39th) that did not receive a first place vote.
