  1. Sorry but I don't actively use HyperSpin anymore besides theme recording as I've switched completely to LaunchBox almost 2 years ago. I'll plan to do an extensive LaunchBox playlists project for my giant excel sheet when I'm done (which won't be anytime soon) but I won't create any HyperSpin databases. I'll definitely share my sheets here with you guys as well but the actual databases would be needed to be done by someone else. I guess you're right. Here's the link https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/file/653-pc-game-themes-169/ Also thanks for the kind words, I areally appreciate it!
  2. Speaking of 16:9 themes. I’m not sure if you are aware of this but a user over the LaunchBox forum did over 100 cinematic themes for PC games and uploads new ones almost daily. I’m not sure how the mods feel about if I post a link to the LaunchBox forum download section so I just leave his YouTube playlists with some of his themes here for now: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOP5vk3nlfPiVO7wJXSY4pI32jlNcMFiy https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOP5vk3nlfPgp1wDJzpFae3l63YIjtF-u
  3. So i went ahead and did a quick PC only version for you. Please note that I haven’t listed every PC port for every game in my sheet for multiple reasons. So there are definitely some games with a PC port missing in this filtered list but the huge majority should be definitely included. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ewxYFBc-wxNYhp4TT3JPHMx0_aHuFWcPckR5bK7X5Cc/edit?usp=sharing
  4. No I haven’t. Huge thanks for that link! Will definitely take me a while to include that massive list into my own.
  5. So, here’s the updated version of my “Best Games of All-Time list”. It now includes 22 different top lists to evaluate the final rankings and initially had over 1600 games in it. Thanks to my new way to calculate the final rankings I was able to make the cut exactly at rank 1000. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SCHKsDjVZpnjpIO6aUwHRV5k7extdQg9YguGRX_wZqc/edit?usp=sharing I’ve changed the way how I handle the suggested systems quite a few times over the past year so it got a little bit messy in that regard. I cleaned it up the best I could but please take it with a little grain of salt. There might be a few things I have overlooked and I also haven’t checked every multiplatform game on which system it has the best emulation compatibility. For example, even if I wrote PlayStation 2 as the preferred system for a game, the GameCube version might be a better choice because of better emulation. If anyone has suggestions about that feel free to tell me List criterias: 1. Lists can’t be older than 2011. All lists will also lose more and more influence on the final ranking with every year since its release to give more recent games a fair chance. 2. Every game in existence should theoretically have to get the chance to be in the list. So no hidden gems, system, year, decade, or other more specific lists! 3. No lists which handle whole franchises as a single entry. We want to do this on a per game basis. 4. Lists which were created by only one or two persons aren’t allowed either. 5. The list has to feature at least 100 games. 6. If the same website/magazine has released more than one list since 2011 I will merge all lists to a single one (entries in the older lists which didn’t made the cut into the most recent one will be added at the end of it based on their previous rankings) 7. No on-going votings. The final rankings of the games must be definitive. Here's the Top 30: Please note that I’ve tried my best to find a balanced way to give more recent games a fair chance while at the same time not to devaluate older lists too much and give the creators of the newer lists too much power over the final ranking just because they happen to release their list a little more recent. But even with this measure you will notice that the top games of 2016 and 2017 don’t show up as high as they might deserve it. Unfortunately there’s no way to avoid that as it’s not like that websites/magazine publish this kind of lists every week. Top Lists that are included: 1001: Video Games You Must Play Before You Die (2013) EasyAllies: The EZA Community Top 100 Videogames! (2016) EDGE Magazine: The 100 Greatest Videogames (2017) + 2015 Version Empire Magazine: The 100 Greatest Video Games (2014) Famitsu Readers Top 100 (2017) G4TV: Top 100 (2012) GameFAQs: Best. Game.

  6. I’ve removed the original spreadsheet because it was very outdated. Since the time I’ve posted it I’ve added a lot of new top lists to it. Also I have expanded this little project tremendously and the focus moved on to a giant undertaking, namely to compile the definitive “Top 100 notable games of every year”. I’m working on and off on it for over a year now, compiling all kinds of various lists from a lot of different sources and it’s nowhere to be finished even if it currently contains data of 200 to 300 different lists and over 5000 different games. I can create an updated version of my “Best Games of All-Time” list if you want but it’s gonna take a few days.
  7. Cid, im a blind gamer. too much Pepsi, lol.

    thanks, peace out player 

  8. Makes sense that you customize the database for your own setup but I thought you were doing here a general HyperSpin compatible “Best games of all time”-wheel for the whole community and not a “Best games of all time that ninja2bceen has and his PC can also handle”-wheel I’m sorry if I misunderstood you. But yeah, your wheel logo is decent enough for me
  9. I don’t know. I think the video is less than ideal because it features a lot of games which aren‘t included in the list and more important they are all only just 8- and 16-bit games. A custom one which features all the top rank games would be way better. I thought on either the Top 25 (28 games) or the Top 30 (37 games). @JackJamesBaker: I would really love it if you could also make a long version of your main theme like you did with your MAME/Arcade Classics one Top 25 (some of the games share the same rank, that's why there are more games than ranks): Half-Life 2 (PC) Resident Evil 4 (Nintendo GameCube) Grand Theft Auto V (PC) Dark Souls (PC) Super Mario World (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64) The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (PC) Shadow of the Colossus (Sony PlayStation 2) Tetris (Nintendo Game Boy) BioShock (PC) Mass Effect 2 (PC) Super Metroid (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Sony PlayStation) Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (Sony PlayStation 2) Chrono Trigger (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) Halo: Combat Evolved (PC) The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (Nintendo GameCube) Metroid Prime (Nintendo GameCube) Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Nintendo Wii) Metal Gear Solid (Sony PlayStation) Portal (PC) Portal 2 (PC) Final Fantasy III (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) Final Fantasy VII (Sony PlayStation) Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (Sony PlayStation 2) Deus Ex (PC) Rank 26 to 30: Fallout 3 (PC) Doom (Microsoft MS-DOS) Goldeneye 007 (Nintendo 64) Minecraft (PC) Pokémon Yellow (Nintendo Game Boy) Super Mario Bros. 3 (Nintendo Entertainment System) The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (Nintendo 64) Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (PC) World of Warcraft (PC)
  10. Ich habe keins meiner Dolphin Spiele komprimiert und kann daher nichts dazu sagen. Aber du musst aufjedenfall die entsprechenden Triforce-Versionen von Dolphin benutzen. Normale Dolphin Versionen funktionieren nicht.
  11. Oh, I haven’t noticed that somebody has answered to this thread.... I attached both themes to post #6.
  12. IMPORTANT: new spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1SCHKsDjVZpnjpIO6aUwHRV5k7extdQg9YguGRX_wZqc/edit?usp=sharing See this post for more information: http://hyperspin-fe.com/forums/topic/27056-best-games-of-all-time-wheel/?page=3&tab=comments#comment-297942 Old Post:

  14. Good to know. Thanks for testing! It would be awesome if somebody else could test this as well, so that I would have a definitve confirmation.
  15. You're right with the ball but in zookeeper it's the zookeeper at the beginning when he moves from the right to the left, especially his face
