Might as well lit the rest of my ideas here too

Gamerscore milestone awards (10k, 25k,50k, etc) This way you won't have to visit someone's profile page to see around how much G they have.

Can't think of anymore right now, but if I think of any, I will post them.


To expand on Scotty's response, most, if not all of our awards are for participating in the community. Whether by creating content (writing guides, contributing to discussions, etc), completing the challenges laid down by the staff (staff/franchise/challenge clubs, Arcade Crazy and Over Achiever list), or winning tournaments, awards are given out for community things, not necessarily for things that take place entirely off the site.


Your idea does get brought up from time to time, and it does get consideration in some behind the scenes discussions, but it has yet to be put forward in a way that makes sense in a community way. I'm sure it will be considered again at a later date, but for the time being it does not appear to be in the cards.

Deadpool x360a's Gamercard

Awards Showcase Green Thumb - Bronze   Achievement Guide - Silver   Staff Club - Neverender   Over Achiever - Silver   x360a Representer   Road Map - Gold   Bright Idea   1,000 Posts
Total Awards: 8 (more» ...)
I'd like to suggest a Hack & Slash/Beat 'em Up group of tiered awards. There are a lot of games that fall under that general jurisdiction with a variety of difficulties. Additionally, none of these are in any of the existing challenges*.


*I'm sure a case could be made for something, but I'm not here to debate that, just to make a suggestion

For the title, I dunno. I'm not creative unless it's a pun.

For the games:
Tier 1:
- Castle Crashers
- Conan
- Sacred Citadel (a bit lengthy)
- [One of The Dishwasher games]

- Scott Pilgrim vs. The World (note: this is glitchy)

Tier 2:
- Marvel Ultimate Alliance (not difficult, but long - also, there is discontinued DLC, but it's available on disc)
- Darksiders/Darksiders 2 (kind of a stretch, lots of puzzles)
- Bayonetta
- Splatterhouse
- Dante's Inferno


Tier 3:
- Ninja Gaiden 2
- Devil May Cry 4/Devil May Cry HD Collection

- Guilty Gear 2: Overture
- Golden Axe: Beast Rider
- Dynasty Warriors 8

Some notes:
Bold indicates games I think would be great choices.
Some alternatives for non-bold ones (just to give a nice selection for consideration if other people like the idea) - Ninja Gaiden 3, DmC: Devil May Cry, Clash of the Titans, Orc Attack: Flatulent Rebellion, Knights Contract, Killer is Dead, Ninety-Nine Nights (I or II), X-Blades, Hunted: The Demon's Forge, Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, Charlie Murder, Anarchy Reigns, Altered Beast.

I like the idea of a list for that genre, but you could probably take out DW8 and and put another game in there. I think the DW series and its spinoffs could probably be their own franchise club.

What if we had an award called... Pandamonium!
Basically an award for completing all games with a Panda as the main character
The only games I know of are both Kung Fu Pandas and Roll In The Hole.
It may not be enough for an award, or challenging enough... But Kung Fu Panda 2 can be kinda tough at times.

If I had a staff award it would be full of Koei titles. King of Koei.

Latest one was the Sonic one but the awards haven't been uploaded yet, so i'm guessing it isn't yet active.

I saw that it was the Card & Board franchise club. But it hasn't been posted yet, and it's been 2 days since the date. I'm assuming the club is made, but they aren't posting it for whatever reason. I dunno, I guess we have to wait since there isn't an official word.

Hmmm.... you make it sounds as if there's something special happening this time? Multiple clubs being released? Maybe it's the 1 year anniversary of the franchise clubs? Maybe I'm over thinking it?
