Here tis as promised.
Plenty of people dabble in the darkside, me included, but need help about what to play. Its a dark scary world over here, and some guidance is welcomed.
So, the object of this thread, like its light side sibling,is to recommend to other boomers non-adventure games that you believe worthy of playing in this day and age. The games may be your all time favourites, but they need not be. I loved Quake at the time 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. Subject to the devilchilli special offer (see below) you can recommend a maximum of 13 games, but you don't have to, and 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.
Special offer - to assist with counting, anyone who lists in reverse alphabetical order (z-a) can list 14 games
Please use full titles where possible as I am not as familiar with titles and series over here. Add ons and expansions might confuse me but I will shout if help is needed.
We will keep the list open for 13 days and with help from a nickie of two, the list will be categorised for genre, at least down as far as games with multiple recommendations.
So who is first??
