Good to know you have an interest in there being another annual casual games list. Let's wait and see what Ana has to say. smile

Honestly, I'm torn 8dog. There were only 15 responses last year. sad I'm more than happy to do it again if people will participate. It takes a lot of time typing out all the games (as Chief can attest to, with his wonderful support) and I'd like to be assured it's actually going to be utilized.

So...talk to me. I'll listen if you all speak up!

I like to see the lists, but honestly, I almost never play the games until long after they come out and I like most of them so it is hard for me to choose for the lists. rolleyes

I'd like to see it done though! wink

Could we simply add individual favorites to last year's thread? Not with editing the old posts but with new posts so that anyone looking could then look at lists person by person?

What would be more useful to me would be if people listed the games they liked along with why they liked them. Knowing that 10 people liked a game won't tell me if I'll like it. Maybe they don't care about puzzles and skip half of them so they can get on with the story. Maybe they don't mind "features" that drive me up the wall and spoil the game for me. That's the problem with the reviews at Big Fish -- people there high-rate a game for things I consider a nuisance and I'm trying to avoid (like three different types of "collectables")

Knowing a certain person liked a game is helpful if I tend to like the same games, but I don't find the mega-list to be very helpful, and that's probably where most of the work for Ana and Chief comes in.

WE could indeed make some kind of Recommendations thread, in fact we could make one and sticky it in Casual Forum permanently that you can add to when you come across one you really like. How does that sound?

I do check out the "Best of" list each year, and have found games I hadn't noticed before, especially if I have been away from Casuals for a while. However, I would be fine with everyone simply posting their lists of favorites and letting it stand as that, without compiling them into a master list. That would be a lot less work for the Moderators.

In any case, most valuable to me (as others have said) are posts of mini-reviews from individual players, as these contain REASONS for why they enjoyed a game. When such reviews are tagged onto the thread for a Notice of new game, even better. It is great to hear current feedback on games by those who jumped right on them.

That sounds like a brilliant idea to me bravo

After a while, with playing so many games, of whatever type, I can so easily have forgotten the title of a really decent one by the time an annual list comes round.
But with such a system in place, I could add a good game as soon as I finished it !! dance

That's what I thought too, Mad - much better system than having to rely upon my memory regarding games I played some time ago. smile

I think it would work better than the annual lists.
Worth a try anyway.

Sounds like we have a plan! We will get this implemented!

Chief, this will be only for casual games. It is the least participated in list.

Ana wave
