I'm thinking with these games that there should be a basic rule that says that any game that invites tons of leaching should be changed into a least time wins game, which means that whoever completes the most stages in the least time gets 1st place.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a good example of this problem. Shooters, on the other hand, are fine as a most points wins game.

Basically, any game that invites leaching, but undergoes a time limit so you actually net a loss of lives should remain as a most points wins game, but if you net a gain of lives (or are barely losing lives overall) should probably be changed to a least time wins game. But we could make all of them least time wins games because that would show the best amount of skill, in my opinion.

If we change it to a least time wins game, there should be a side competition that ranks recordings as a most points wins game. (with leaching still disallowed)

Check out this discussion we had way back in the day...

Any thoughts on the matter? Thanks!

I agree for the games where there is a wining point. But for marathon games, there should be a clone with a time limit on it, to see how much points you can get in an hour rather than see how much points you can get forever, so you can measure efficiency in leeching perhaps...
