I'm not feeling great today and am off my game, so for the sake of my ego, let's pretend that I made some funny quips, a 36-hours reference, maybe a jab at Ender--you know, the usual.
Fail plans on streaming for 12 hours next Sunday, October 14th! He wants chat's input on which games to play. Now's your chance to make him play all those games you suggested, he promised he would play, and then never did because he's .
First check to see that your game has not already been submitted to save your hard-working, dedicated mods (and Ender) some headaches. If your game hasn't been submitted, fill out this form.
Once you've submitted the form, your game should appear in the #game-votes Discord channel. (If it doesn't, be sure to ping me in Discord.)
Vote for games that you want to see played by adding your failsRigged reaction to the entry. The games with the most votes at the end of Saturday night's stream are the most likely to be played on Sunday.
If you see a multiplayer game that you'd be interested in playing with him, add a failsMini reaction, too.
Fail will have ultimate veto power on suggested games. That said, everyone knows FailGov is a benevolent dictatorship. And let's be honest, when has he ever denied a chat's overwhelming majority?
We're not sure yet.
If I (dx_over_dt) and/or other developers in chat have time before Sunday, it might be a sophisticated system with some shiny algorithms and a fabulous UI/website.
If not (and this is the more likely case), it will involve some random picks that are totally not rigged in favor of mods. And hey, just because I happen to get picked for every game, there's no way to prove that it wasn't by random chance. (I mean, unless you took statistics or something.)
He plans to play the selected games for between 30 minutes and 2 hours, so keep that in mind when suggesting games. If you want an idea of how long a game takes, check out http://howlongtobeat.com/.
This guideline doesn't mean he won't play games that he can't beat in that amount of time, but they should have shallow learning curves--very shallow learning curves --and be enjoyable to both watch and play in that amount of time.
It's also possible he may do this again (this is a bit of a test run), and your 20-hour game (that, let's be honest, would take Fail 36 hours to beat) may be picked back up in later streams.
