Halfway people and its tight.
Oblivion and The Witcher are tied for most popular, with Oblivion perhaps having an advantage in the run home as it has been out longer so more people might have played it. But we will see.
KOTOR is doing well, as is Planescape Torment, Morrowind and Divine Divinity.
Plenty of games too that I for one have never heard of.
To clarify, Sacred and Sacred Plus are indeed treated as one game, as are Thief and Thief Gold - same as last year and it hasn't been an issue yet.
Ditto Jade Empire and its special ed - as far as I know they are the pc and xbox versions of the same game.

1. The Witcher
2. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
3. Silent Hill 3
4. Prey
5. Neverwinter nights II
6. Jade Empire: Special Edition
7. Gothic II
8. Dungeon Siege II
9. Condemned: Criminal Origins
10. Avencast: Rise of the Mage

Since this is a recommendation list to play today I didn't include one of my favorites, Baldur's Gate, because I think it would look outdated now. Also I would like to warn that 3 ad 9 are not for people easily scared or dislike "gorish" games.

Hi all,
Its a new number 1 this year, and I for one, even with my limited rpg experience, am not surprised. From the opening sequence it grabbed me and hasn't let go.
Lots of new games for me to play, if ever I find the time, and new worlds to conquer and bludgeon into submission. Perhaps one day I will even graduate to a more gentle approach.
A few more console games listed this year, and given the number of different consoles out there now it probably isn't surprising.
Two lists follow as usual, and also as usual all errors are mine.
Thanks all wave
