Hi all,
Those that have been hiding in the shadows for a while know what this list is about, but for newer shady types, the aim of this list is simple - 13 days to list 13 Dark Side games that other people should play. Its a list for everyone - newbies, dabblers and veterans. Its about helping answer the question "what should I play next?".
There are rules, and after consulting the oracle and some chicken entrails (plus some darkling GBers) there is a change to the rules this year concerning expansion packs. The rationale for the change is in this thread if you want to check it out.
So what are the rules?

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, DLC, GOTY releases etc are all considered the same game - just vote for eg Fallout 3 and ignore all its available added on bits.
4. Consistent with 3, enhanced editions, directors cuts etc are also considered the same game.
5. Any "dark" game (ie not pure adventure or casual) can be listed, irrespective of genre.
6. 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.
7. It is essentially a pc list (the system not the games), but given that many players have consoles as well, if you want to list some games for the console go ahead.

If you can list alphabetically it helps me count, and please use full names, as I am not as familiar with titles over here. If I get confused, I will seek help.
Now, who is first?
