Hi all
Now is the annual time to list those 13 Dark Side games that other people should play. It doesn't matter what you list, so long as its the type of game discussed here, and you reckon someone should play it.
You get a bit longer this year. Its normally 13 days but I will be away so it will be more like 18. Plenty of time for plenty of people to take part!
If a game made the light side list, don't worry - there are shades of light and dark so those games aren't excluded here (even if you listed them over there) Candle and Portal 2 spring to mind.
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 fps' 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.
See you in a couple of weeks taz

dance C'mon folks, even if you only have a few to list, go for it! It's not a requirement to list out a full 13, so if you're just a now-and-then Darkside player go ahead and put it out there. We don't bite, most of the time! grin

Is there a reason why the Darkside list doesn't have a
"Hall of Fame" like the Adventure list?
Also a maximum of only 13 games per list compared to 20?

American McGee's Alice
Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
Divine Divinity
Divinity: Original Sin
Drakan: Order of the Flame
Dungeon Keeper 2
Dungeon Siege
Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven
Might and Magic VII: For Blood and Honor
Pillars of Eternity
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Tomb Raider (1996 version)
Two Worlds


I "would" recommend Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, but only with the restored content mod, which isn't how it comes when you buy it. So it doesn't make the list.

Zanzarah also doesn't make my list, this time because I don't think it works on anything later than XP.

Jenny, Zanzarah is on Steam and has been for quite a while, tweaked to run on newer systems. I keep hoping that GOG will get it also, but thus far no luck. It works fine on my Windows 7 computer.

Hey Jenny, I don't know if there was a Hall of Fame list in the past and never thought to do one. The forum participation here is rather light, a very small percentage of the overall forum population. Also, of those that do participate, the majority split their time between Adventure games and our genres. As a result, the recommendations on a "Hall of Fame" would be a little skewed and probably not change much from year to year. That said, I'd be happy to put one together. grin

The number selected (13) was done before my time, but I believe it's partially due to the aforementioned. Only a few members are dedicated Darkside players, so the number to contribute was lowered. Thirteen was selected due to it's "dark" connotation.
