Hi all,
As promised,here is the thread for this years top 13 Dark Side recommendations.
The object for any boomers in the dark is to recommend to other boomers non-adventure games that you believe worthy of playing in this day and age. Plenty of people venture over here and don't know what to play, me included. The games may be your all time favourites, but they need not be. I loved Quake at the time and I still think of it highly but I wouldn't recommend it today.
We then compile a final list as a resource for other players.
The rules are fairly simple.

1. You can recommend a maximum of 13 games, but you can recommend less.
2. You can't list a series, unless you use single votes for each game.
3. Expansion packs will be considered seperate games, on the basis that the original might be ordinary but an expansion pack superb.
4. Any game that is not pure adventure can be listed, irrespective of genre.
5. You don't have to indicate the type or genre, and you are not limited to any specific number of games in any genre. Go ahead and list 13 rpg's if you choose.
6. It is essentially a pc list, but given that many players have consoles as well, if you want to list games for the console go right ahead.

Please use full titles where possible as I am not as familiar with titles and series over here as I am with the light side games. Add ons and expansions might confuse me but I will shout if clarification is needed.
We will keep the list open for about 2 weeks and with help from a mucky the list will also be categorised for genre, at least down to those with multiple recommendations.
I will post later - Oblivion is still a work in progress!
Lets go devil

I got my list together but cant seem to narrow it down to 13. So far the best I can do is 15. I'll need a little while to weigh things out. lol

Blood Rayne
KOTOR
KOTOR 2
Morrowindbravo
Oblivion
Dungeon Lords
Gothic
Divine Divinity
Sacred Gold
Tomb Raider 2
No One Lives Forever
Betrayal In Antara (For those of you who are unfamiliar with this one it would be worth checking into. Many hours of enjoyment with turn based combat)
Diablo Hellfire (My first action adventure game took me a while to learn) bravo
