  1. Because I can and have run out of ideas.

    Anyways, my plan is to run sort of a user-run tournament on what the best video game is, according to the Empire. (and Minecraft faces the winner of that in a bonus challenge.) Everyone will have a few nominations in deciding which game gets in the contest. It's a hit-or-miss idea, but it can theoretically work.

    Edit: Anyone who doesn't get their nominations in by March 18th will not be qualified.

    EDIT 2: Nominations Closed. The Final List:
    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (doomaculas, Aesri)
