Hi all,
My apologies for the lack of updates. Someone has to keep the real world safe <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />
Some details to date:

Top 5 are TLJ GK2 Riven ZorkGI Myst and Grim Fandango (tied).

The top two games have been recommended by at least every second person who has posted.

38 games are into double digits.

57 games have at least 5 recommendations.

115 games have received at least 2 recommendations.

44 games have been recommended by at least 10% of the persons posting.

178 games in all have been recommended.

The Watchmaker has 2 already, and Syberia and Darkfall were listed on the strength of their demos.

I remain hopelessly inadequate on the non-adventure summary. It might have to wait till the end.
We usually keep this thread open for 3 weeks, so it will close next weekend. We are still short of last years total so keep them coming. I will post final tallies and an alphabetical list shortly thereafter.

Flotsam, check out ChipsNBits.com and Amazon.com for those Barbie games. You may not have access to the mall stores like I do but I usually find the Barbie games available at KayBee Toys, ToysRUs, Electronic Boutique, Frye's, Best Buy, Office Depot & probably Office Max too, Gamestop, to name a few. Do a search of the internet and ask for "Barbie PC games" with the quotes to narrow down the search. It sounds like Australia has a lack of gaming stores or distributors willing to ship to your area, which must be very hard for you.
Love, Betty Lou
P.S. I almost forgot, our Arden Fair Mall has a BARBIE store! I don't remember if they sell PC games there tho, but they sure have everything else! In spades!
