Boy, turn your back for a few days and look what happens.
I had better get cracking on my first pithy insight.
Stay tuned!

Whilst I was tallying up where we are at this stage I kept thinking "why didn't I vote for that one??". Limiting to 15 really is hard frown
So far more than 160 games have received recommendations. The top 3 are Longest Journey, Syberia and Dark Fall. Three freeware games have received a vote, and 43 games have been mentioned that weren't mentioned last year. Tex and Gabe are still polling well, as is Guybrush. George and Nico remain solid vote pullers as well, and all but one of Nancy's outings has already received at least one recommendation. New releases this year are probably doing better than in previous years. To the best of my knowledge the oldest game recommended comes from 1987, and the newest game recommended hasn't been released yet!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />
