It matters for fairness sake. Nobody likes my designs this week, that's fine (though they are pretty good IMO). I'll move to the next thing. But the thing is, video game references are banned. There's a good reason for that- such cultural references have a huge advantage in a contest like this. They are familiar, people spend a lot of time nowadays playing video games, happy time, so anything with a Link™ to such a thing is likely to have a built-in voter base. If they weren't banned, there would be a lot more entries using a variety of video games, and it might be a fair playing field. Since virtually everyone didn't submit entries that are related to such games, those who did, wittingly or not, have a huge advantage. This is where the unfairness comes in.
