laugh Yes, Heretic II is a different game than Heretic or Heretic Kingdoms. Sure can get confusing when names are so similar.

I've played exactly two darkside games
Drakan
Divine Divinity (almost finished...pant pant..its been a long time playing)
and I recommend both.

Divine Divinity because I haven't had so much fun since my mom made me a superman costume for Halloween--(I wore it day and night for three weeks--under my dress at school).

And Drakan cause you get to fly a dragon for most of the game. How cool is that!!! It was nice and long too

Next year I hope to have really played 10--I will be useing everyones suggestions.

AS a newbie to the DarkSide I also only have a couple recommendations, but they were both 2 thumbs up for me!

1. Divine Divinity
2. Beyond Divinity

Thank you for compiling the list Flotsam praise I hope to have more added by next year with your help and Boomer input. I have Zanzarah ready to go already.

Hmmmm...

I wonder how this will compare to my last year's list...

If someone told me I could only keep ten of my games, these are the ones I wouldn't be able to part with, in no particular order,

1. Gothic
2. Gothic 2
3. Thief Gold
4. Thief 2 the Metal Age
5. Morrowind
6. Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
7. Deus Ex (the first one)
8. Vampire Bloodlines
9. Splinter Cell (the first one)
10.Baldur's Gate 2 Shadows of Amn

I think that covers it.

Holy cow this can get confusing woozy
Thanks for the heads up Nickie; now tell me, are Baldurs Gate 2 and Baldurs Gate 2: Shadows of Amn the same game?
Nearly 100 games mentioned already, about 40 not listed last year. Divine Divinity, Morrowind, Neverwinter Nights and Knights of the Old Republic lead the way.
I noticed Syd that you tried to sneak in extras shame and Jen, more than one game on the same collection disc is at this stage not going to get you a vote for each of them, clever as it is. You can try and convince me though wink As for you Looney, you may indeed vote 10 times for Zanzarah but I will only count it once laugh
Keep them coming :kiss:
