Thanks Flotsam for taking the time to compile the list.

I also was suprised to see Riven so close to the top. And I really must start playing Grim Fandango so I can consider it next year!

I think that's part of the reason that the list includes so many old games. We see that others love them, so instead of playing a newer game we try and get the older ones to try. So then they go on our next year's list!

Thanks from me too, Flotsam!

I will have to keep my eyes open for some of the gems mentioned! (And give a few more a higher slot on my 'to play" stack;))

Flotsam, a truly AWESOME job. I'm sure all the "Boomers" appreciate seeing how their favorite games rate with the favorite games of all the other members. That is the major benefit of your hard work. However, there is a secondary benefit for those like me that have not played many of those games, and that is....I now have a better idea of games to be on the lookout for (not to mention getting to some that are on my shelf at this moment.) I want to thank you for giving me a "wish list" of games to search for. Can't wait till next year!!! Great job. Sky.

Hi Skylark,
I actually started the first of these threads for exactly that reason - namely, to get a list of games that I could play. Being new to the genre, I needed some help with all those games out there.
So I am glad it helps you in that way smile

flotsam

ps - sorry about not adding the late posts, but I had to stop somehwere!

Skylark your last paragraph speaks volumes. You are so correct about the Boomer Community. Its the only site I can relate to with out feeling threatened or getting cursed out with extremely bad language just because I did not agree with the majority. Thanks for bringing this great fact to surface.
