Hi all,
The day after horses birthday seems like the perfect day to start this list (horse smiley inserted here)
You now have 13 days to list 13 Dark Side games that other people should play. It doesn't matter what you list, so long as its dark, and you reckon someone should play it.
Even though its dark, there are rules:

1. You can recommend a maximum of 13 games, but are allowed to recommend less.
2. You can't list a series, unless you use single votes for each game.
3. Expansion packs, DLC, GOTY releases etc are all considered the same game - just vote for eg Fallout 3 and ignore all its available added on bits.
4. Consistent with 3, enhanced editions, directors cuts etc are also considered the same game.
5. Any "dark" game (ie not pure adventure or casual) can be listed, irrespective of genre.
6. You don't have to indicate the type or genre, and you are not limited to any specific number of games in any genre. Go ahead and list 13 rpgs' if you want to.
7. It is essentially a pc list (the system not the games), but given that many players have other systems, if you want to list some games for those go ahead.

If you can list alphabetically it helps me count, and please use full names if possible so I don't get them mixed up. I will ask if I get confused

Whoo. This gets harder every year. Gotta bump some off the list, but it's so difficult to do. I'm finally turfing BG 2 and all of the other old Bioware games. Love them all forever, but it's time to move on.

These are my current faves, by which I mean I would happily load them up and start a new game right now without a second thought.

Dragon Age Origins
Fallout 3
Fallout New Vegas
Gothic II
Half Life 2
Morrowind
Oblivion
Skyrim
Star Wars Kotor
Thief 2 Gold

Hi all
The results are in and it was tight at the top, but a repeat winner snuck through.
As always, a numerical and an alphabetical list follow. I will go back over the lists in the next few days to make any full name changes I haven't picked up.
Errors are all mine
Enjoy!
