Another tough decision
My only complaint is the fact that Dark Cry is eligible when there isn't a playable version available. I understand that there aren't that many hacks to choose from but I feel that nobody can/should vote for it simply from what they see in its thread. Still, overall the picks were pretty good and my decision was definitely a hard one to make.

I don't mind that there isn't a playable version.
I voted for it anyway,
But I agree it shouldn't be in there.
Isn't there any others? xD

          Although Crono doesn't work in my Emulator, I think that it is the best out of all three. I have seen the videos and the scripts look pretty good (excluding the grammar and english mistakes) plus the graphics are pretty cool.

            I voted for Pokemon Crono. From the looks of its graphics and scripts, this hack looks promising. I like the palettes and tiles used. The OWs are looking good.

            Anyways, my vote goes to Pokemon Crono.

              I vote for Crono since it's my top 3 favorite hack.
              The scripting and tiles are awesome and that's why I vote for it.

                  My vote goes to 'the legend of Giratina'','cause it haves these amazing tiles of the reverse world,and it has smashing storyline.

                    Liquid Crystal - it has the best graphics, I've ever seen, it's the closest and best gcs reamke ever and it has some neat little features e.g. the new berry system

                        I voted for Chrono because it had the best story and features in my opinion.

                        I voted Liquid Crystal.
                        It's the most far along and from my favorite series.
                        Crono I have never tried.. So yeah...
                        And Dark city doesn't even have a beta out.

                          I've played both Crono and LC and I just like LC a little better sorry =/
                          storlyine in Crono was great but there were lots of grammar errors and the gameplay in LC was more enjoyable for me atleast.

                            Pokémon Dark Cry The Legend of Giratina seems pretty cool to me. Although I haven't play them yet but the looks of the screenshots. I hope they not fake. And Crono seems good too. In fact I should play it if everyone votes for it.

                              Well, liquid crystal by far the best.
                              Not only, the story, but also graphics etc.
                              It's almost equal to the epic shiny gold!
                              Perhaps, if its creators focus more on some minor bugs, the game will gain an originality. I am pretty sure, that if they continue like this, they will surpass shiny gold.

                                  I should have play them before voting but oh well. I want to see the results when it comes up. I can't understand Crono at all but Liquid Crystal seems pretty good. For some reason in Crono, I was stuck after the whole police thingy unless the beta ends.

                                  For now on, next month voting. I rather play the game than looking at Screenshots. Makes a whole lot sense.

                                  I have to give it to Liquid Crystal, although they are all amazing thus far. Even after a GIANT bug, LaZ managed to bounce back for a successful re-release of Beta 2. Determination always makes a good hack. Plus the new music and tiles are wonderous :D
