For a spectator that knew nothing about FIRST, 2006 was the best game. They could walk into a competition with no idea about the game and a simple explanation of ‘shoot as many as you can into the top goal, get on the ramp at the end’ brought them up to speed. They then got to watch balls fly, bots shoving, climbing, and tipping.
2006 was the best spectator game by far.
Our team did real well at Aim High so I will not vote against it
Its not about how well your team did, its about what makes the game good. The strategy, ease of explanation to a casual observer, the excitement of the crowd, the different possible designs of all the robots(which is the thing i rate the highest when it comes to games), and several other factors.
I understand that people like games more when they have a competitive robot during that game, but i have had robots do not so great and still like that years game better than some years where the robot did well. I just like to look at the whole of the game rather than how well my team did that year.
I keep voting for 2006 too. I’m curous why 1994 is still there. I was hardly even alive then, but the description of the game doesn’t look anywhere near as fun as 2007. I may be wrong though. I haven’t voted against it simply because I have never really seen it played fully.
