I’m just over 7% into my journey/experiment in ranking my game collection. That’s 1659 pairwise comparisons (so far).
I have an initial version of the lists/stats engine, that pulls off the results, calculates a value for each game in the collection, and then sorts that list into descending order. That sorted list is then printed out to the screen.
So running the lists/stats engine python script gives me the following 11 games as my Top 10 games (so far). Naturally as I complete more pairwise comparisons this list will change as more results are available. With more results the more reliable and accurate the list will be. I must do some research into at what point do the results generated become truly representative (is that the correct word?) There must be a tipping point where doing more tests is irrelevant because it doesn’t impact the results.
Anyhoo (and I bet that gets up the noses of some folks) here is the first very temporary top ten games of all time.
