Remember to double check the Hall of Fame games in flotsam's first post of the thread before placing your votes, everyone. smile I'm noticing a few games pop up which aren't eligible for voting!

and if I may add, please don't forget to post your list in alphabetical order.

It's a big help when you do.

Thanks Flotsam. This is a great idea. One game I'm looking forward to is Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav. I think that would be #21 on my list. If I had more room I would also add the Monkey Island games and Tale of a Hero.

That is a very high recommendation indeed, and before it's even out yet! Are you sure you're not the voodoo lady? smile

Hi sijacki,

The Annual List isn't about games that are worthy and forgotten, though, it's about games that we'd recommend to other gamers because we've played them and like them and wouldn't mind seeing some of them in the Hall of Fame!

Wow! I keep saying to myself, GK: Sins of the Fathers hasn't made the Hall of Fame yet! So I keep on voting for it. Hope springs eternal! grin
