    We should do a most Unique Battle System next year. Cause there are plenty of games that have unique battle systems that may not be consider best by many gamers but are still pretty enjoyable (SRWOGSaga:Endless Frontier and Project X Zone come to mind)

    I think that's a great idea!

    I was actually thinking a "Worst Battle System of All Time" tournament would be more fun. People love to talk about the best battle systems, sure, but if we're talking about the absolute worst of the worst, it could get really, really hilarious.

    To be horrendously pedantic, that would be "most original battle systems," not "unique." You can't have levels of uniqueness. Either something is one of a kind, or it isn't.

    I would certainly be onboard such a tournament, though. :) I am especially drawn to original and atypical battles system (Yggdra Union, the Baten Kaitos games, The World Ends With You).
    Bravely second...
    The courage to try again...

    Worst Battle system would be fun. I think.

    My suggestion? Best/Worst RPG Character. I know fanboying/girling would be heavy, but I'd actually like to hear some debates on what makes this characters so good/bad. Personal growth? Attitude? Weapon size? Quotable? Best special moves?

    Aaagh! I demand to submit my nominations for best character!

    Cidolfus Orlandeau (FFT)
    Grand Papillon (SH2)
    Uzuki Shion (Xenosaga)
    Jade Curtiss (TotA)
    Agrias Oaks (FFT)
    Auron (FFX)
    Sanada Akihiko (P3)
    Satonaka Chie (P4)


    Based purely on my own reaction, I suspect that such a tournament would indeed risk degrading into a battle of the fan[boys/girls], but it nevertheless seems like an good opportunity for discussing character design in depth. If the Battle Royale so far is any indicator, this format is pretty good for generating discussion with a lot of differing perspectives.
    Only the livin' have the privilege of sayin' they'll fight ta the last breath.
    And words like conviction and resolve don't mean much to a dead man...

    This reminded me of this video. It's a bit NSFW:
