Was this the wrong topic?
Absolutely! I did something recently myself but I won't tell you where.
I HAVE AN IDEA
We should combine all the games! Make it one big game!*
*We here at Voltex Incorporated realize that this is actually a terrible idea, and that we should probably never ever speak of this again. Ever.

BZ-METRU, FEB. 11 – Notorious criminal mastermind “Xaeraz” escaped from custody late last night after being caught last week for vandalizing the BZ-Metru Bank and being arrested on a number of charges including first degree murder and suspected terrorism. Xaeraz levelled the entire villain containment centre in the Ga-Metru, freeing thousands of criminals in the process. Reports are estimating that forty guards were killed and an additional sixty more were injured.
The Turaga issued a statement earlier this morning reminding Matoran to report any sightings of Xaeraz to the Vahki enforcers and Metru Police Force, with additional warnings to stay away from the wanted criminal.
BZ-METRU, FEB. 12 – In response to the recent increase in terrorist activity and the escape of wanted criminal Xaeraz, the Metru-Nui Turaga have announced a news conference to be given on the island town of BZ-Koro in three days time to address the issues of security that are plaguing the country.
BZ-METRU, FEB. 13 – Late last night, a message was discovered scrawled onto the walls of the Coliseum, warning the Turaga of Metru-Nui to cancel the upcoming address in BZ-Koro. Three witnesses were interrogated regarding the responsible party’s identity, but all three died of unknown causes before questioning could be completed.
The Turaga have stated that the message will have no effect on the timing of the speech, although it was later announced that only two of the previous six Turaga announced to be attending will be present at the conference hall on Saturday.
“Still looking at those scraps of paper?”
The Matoran glanced up from the numerous paper cuttings strewn across the table of the cafe, located right next to the window. Grimacing, he offered the seat across from him to the newcomer, who accepted it.
“Voltex, you’re worrying about nothing,” the newcomer (a Matoran of Lightning) said. “Nothing is going to happen at this conference.”
“You don’t know that, Blade.” Voltex said absently, still inspecting the scraps of various articles. “I met Xaeraz once... it was terrifying.”
“The security at the conference is going to be top of the line, though,” Blade said.
“Security all over the country is top-notch right now and he’s still finding ways to blow up our biggest prisons,” Voltex said, pointing towards a clip detailing the destruction of a series of holding cells in Ko-Metru three weeks prior.
Blade grimaced before changing the subject. “Did you accept that application to the Metru-Nui Police Force?”
“Of course not,” Voltex said, laughing nervously as he adjusted his Volitak.
“But gravity! That’d be so useful for law enforcement!” Blade exclaimed in mock surprise.
“So is lightning,” Voltex noted, “but you didn’t accept it either.”
As Blade mumbled something about Toa being lame under his breath, a Matoran cloaked all in black stepped up beside them. Flinching, Voltex scrambled to gather the newspapers, dumping them all unceremoniously into the pack sitting beside him on the floor. The cloaked Matoran said nothing, instead handing two sealed envelopes to the seated Matoran and then vanishing back into the crowd.
“What are these?” Blade asked.
“Must be an invitation of some sort,” Voltex said, “or we’re the targets of an assassination.”
“...should we just leave them?” Blade asked, before realizing that Voltex was already opening his. “Voltex! What if they’re poisoned?!”
“Oops,” the other Matoran said, not caring at all. “They are invitations, actually. To... the conference....”
Voltex sighed and flopped back into his seat as Blade tossed his unopened envelope back onto the table. Their gazes met and Voltex sighed again. “Should we go?”
“It’s dangerous to refuse the wishes of the Turaga,” Blade said. “They aren’t the most benevolent of rulers.”
“Then it’s settled,” Voltex said, standing. “Let’s go to that conference and die.”
The two stood to their feet and shook hands before exiting the cafe and heading their separate ways.
There you go - what was the point of this teaser, you ask? Merely to announce the title of the epic, which should release next week:
Bionicle Mafia Uprising: Book 1 - Isolation

Appearance: (Please add a small image, or preferably a link to an image or gallery, or just a small paragraph explaining how you appear to the other players).
Ultimate Weapons: (Self-explanatory; these are a reward, so this slot should remain empty if I have not given you any. Any other questions are answered by the section labelled “Ultimate Weapons” above).
For Bionifight Ultimate, the three rounds (7-9) beginning this Saturday.
This is only for those who did not participate in Rounds 4-6!

Voxumo did some sort of D&D quiz and I was like "you know what I have time I'll do the same thing" so I did and this is what I got and I totally called being Chaotic Good.
You Are A:
Chaotic Good Human Ranger (2nd Level)
Chaotic Good- A chaotic good character acts as his conscience directs him with little regard for what others expect of him. He makes his own way, but he's kind and benevolent. He believes in goodness and right but has little use for laws and regulations. He hates it when people try to intimidate others and tell them what to do. He follows his own moral compass, which, although good, may not agree with that of society. Chaotic good is the best alignment you can be because it combines a good heart with a free spirit. However, chaotic good can be a dangerous alignment when it disrupts the order of society and punishes those who do well for themselves.
Humans are the most adaptable of the common races. Short generations and a penchant for migration and conquest have made them physically diverse as well. Humans are often unorthodox in their dress, sporting unusual hairstyles, fanciful clothes, tattoos, and the like.
Rangers- Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the woods. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions. A ranger's Wisdom score should be high, as this determines the maximum spell level that he can cast.
I wonder if my animal companion could include a penguin, a raccoon, and a polar bear.
Also if I were to play D&D I'd totally play this character
Thanks for piquing my curiosity Voxumo

You've got the usual Bionicle Mafia, although these days more often than not every game has its own unique twist that modifies how you play the game.
Steal the Mask, Pool of Protodermis and Last Letter Game, all of which have remained active ever since the Downtime in 2011 (the first now with a sequel that is a paradox of existence). Don't forget Image Chunks, which recently resurfaced for the first time in two years.
Bionifight, with a fifth installment that has altered the way Bionifight games are played, while also finding new ways to involve players in the creative process - and also making its first appearance in two years.
VERSUS - a brand new game based on the concept of a series that was last seen in 2009, and What Could Go Wrong?, a brand new game just about to begin.
The Music Game and Snappy Comeback, both building on the basic ideas of how you play games like Last Letter Game and twisting them into newer incarnations.
There's Technic Coliseum, another unique fighting game with a sequel that will change the way the game is played in the works.
And of course, Hitman, which must be played and experienced to truly appreciate (it combines some aspects of Mafia, tabletop games, and outrageous humor for one of the best experiences you will have on the forum).
I recommend you take a look if you haven't already - chances are something there will work for you.
