    I like this idea reviews are always great even if they are bad.  I'll def try to play a game or two if I can and give a review about it :)

    If anyone is looking for a game to review, there's this one http://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/35932-godsword/

    I was going to do it, but the battle system is, apparently, the one that's used in The Way, and I just couldn't get my head around it.  That's a shame because it looks a very interesting game and so far no one has commented on it except me.

    Could a video review work for this contest?

    I wanted to try doing a YouTube Let's Play video so if it qualifies, I could instead just do a bunch of games from RPG Maker forums and finish off each video with a score/review/critique

    yes, as long as your video has a list of pros/cons and a rating at the end. Like you said :)

    So I tried to do a Let's Play video but it turned out really bad. Plus, I can't get it to import right so that I could edit out some of the very worst parts... I'm a little disappointed, but in the heart of this event is to provide feedack, so I wrote up a text summary for now. 

    Here is the link to my review of Crescentia. It seemed like the perfect game for me to play :)

    (I will not give up hope! I'm going to figure out how to work the video! Anyone who knows of a Let's play tutorial on how to do one and what software to use I would love to read one though)

    I suggest getting Camtasia Studio or OBS (since it can record). Even if Camtasia has a 30 day trial, I think that's ample enouigh of time for you to let's play a lot? It's the best one for recording.

    ^Huh? Where does it say 800? I thought it was 500, and even that's not set in stone according to the rules. So long as feedback is in-depth and thoughtful, I personally don't see why it'd be a problem.
