I hate to go changing a vote, but since you don't consider Maximo to be part of the GnG series, I'd like to change my vote for Strider Hiryu to Maximo. (And hey, you already have the artwork for it, so...)
Oh yes, that's certainly a more interesting design
I've been trying to establish if Maximo is a spinoff of the GnG series or just similar in style. I think it may be the former, but any double votes there are essentially my fault for not doing the research so I won't force anyone to change if they voted for two.
I've been tallying up everyone's votes before updating the chart, so time for a quick update!
The Top 10 is looking pretty steady, however. Viewtiful Joe and Amaterasu are still head-to-head for first place with Mega Man trailing behind in third place. Mike Haggar has now taken 4th place over Phoenix Wright! I may have to fix that when I cast my own votes
Sissel, Arthur, Strider Hiryu, Nathan Spencer and Frank West are comfortably moving around places 9-10 without much of a challenge from outside.
In 11th place, Morrigan Aensland has crept ahead of Chun-Li, who drops Street Fighter back to 12th. Leon Kennedy has moved Resident Evil into 13th place, which was surprisingly low on votes at first. However, it's looking very unlikely that, unless there's a surge of surprising votes, the Top 10 will change much between now and the end of the poll.
Still, don't forget to vote if you haven't already! I do like to be surprised!
I'm still amazed by the current standings in this one. Sure the popular Capcom series (Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Darkstalkers) with lots of fan favorites are hindering their positions because of that fact. And zero votes for Zero (pun intended) so far, considering how popular the character is...
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.

Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
