    Originally started by GBAtemp member <a href='http://gbatemp.net/member.php?name=bitbyte' target=_blank title='View profile for member bitbyte'}>bitbyte</a>, the "Essentials" topics are basically a list of the best games for a specific console. Members post names of their favourite games for a system, and the topic starter compiles all the votes into a single post.

    Some were started quite awhile ago so why report about them now?

    and some aren't updated anymore.

    I think this is one of the reasons dice posts this again, he wants to lure more people into the topics (preferable older topics)

    In all honesty I was trying to update Costello's post (that was linked in the site index) but cocked it up in the process, so thought doing it again would be a quicker solution and would enable better advertising.

    As for the inactive threads I was planning on messaging the members in control to check whether they were sill able to keep it up to date (as was the case with the [Multiplayer Essentials] Nintendo DS thread).

    Today is a rainy day. I will honestly force myself to update the homebrew essentials topic. I know many don't really care about it but I just don't wanna seem lazy.

    Didn't see multiplayer essentials for DS earlier. Thanks Dice.
    Only one thing: first part should be "Handhelds" or something like that, not "Other systems - Nintendo"

    I could also update another one if it relates to my interests.

    Shouldn't it say Hadrian and not Hadiran?

    spelling typo's ftl [​IMG], thank you

    I'll see if I can contact those who seem to be inactive in terms of updating the lists, those who say they don't wish to continue doing it I'll list here for others to take over.

    Well I've just sent messages to those who haven't updated their lists in over 2 months (some go as far back as early 2007! but they're still active members so I have to give them the chance to respond).

    One thread that's almost definately not going to be updated by the OP anymore is the [Essentials] Dreamcast list.

    So if anyone wishes to take over that thread post here (or via PM) and things will be taken from there.

    * EDIT - what great members we have here, Dj-Biscuit's offered to take over the thread so no need for requests please. If other lists become available I'll report it here.

    the [Essentials] N64 thread is also now available for someone else to take over if wanted.

    Linkiboy said he's fine with carrying on with it if no one else wants to though.
