    not that it matters except i think if a mod closes a thread there should be an explanation included in the thread.

    inquiring minds want to know!

    My guess is that while what game people felt was worthy of the "Best game ever" was interesting, the fact that the site allowed you to post a link to give you more chances amounted to just a thinly veiled attempt at getting more hits for the site ... and thus spam.

    If someone would like to start a thread on what people think is the best game ever in the games section, they are quite welcome.

    ^This is the reason. I wasn't going to bother responding to this thread as a PM would of done much better. Yes, I closed the thread and for the reason Kreij explained.

    You have your answer.
