I have an old CD of Isabelle and was going to try it out just to see what Flotsam was so enthusiastic about. However, it won't run on my machine. So I'll just have to keep wondering. think idea What the attraction is.

Here is mine

Bioshock
Dead Space 2
Divine Divinity
ES Oblivion
ES Skyrim
Fallout 3
Half Life 2
Ico
Limbo
Outcast
Portal 2
Realms of the Haunting
Witcher

OK, I appologize in advance for putting the wrong type of game in my list.
I'm sure I will learn this in time. blush

1. Cute Knight http://www.hanakogames.com/ckd.shtml
2. Diablo 2
3. Diablo 3
4. Elder Scrolls III - Morrowind
5. Elder Scrolls IV - Oblivion
6. Elder Scrolls V - Skyrim
7. Grand Theft Auto V
8. Heroes of Might and Magic 3
9. Papers please http://papersplea.se/
10. Pixel Dungeon http://store.steampowered.com/app/365900
11. Save the Date http://paperdino.com/save-the-date/
12. Sims 4
13. Spycraft

Originally I did put Cute knight, Papers please and Spycraft on the other list but it was incorrect so I hope they fit here.

(Pixel dungeon is a game for pads originally, but it is avaliable for PC so I listed it.
I play another version of it called Shattered Pixel Dungeon, and it is possible to play in on a computer with a modulator or whatever it's called. Just wanted to add that info. smile )

I haven't started counting but I can tell you there is nothing on evryone's list.
Witcher pops up a lot though, and Skyrim gets more than a few mentions.
Plenty I haven't played and more than a few I haven't heard of.
Oldies include ROTH and Dungeon Keeper 2.

It was fun to separate "games I'd recommend" from my list of "favorite games". Here are 13 that I think are all worth trying. There's a bunch of Honorable Mentions that didn't make it, of course. wink

Anno 2070
Bioshock
Dishonored
Dwarf Fortress
Endless Space
Half-Life 2
Hexcells
Mount & Blade: Warband
Portal
Sleeping Dogs
Supreme Commander 2
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Trine (cooperative mode)

Hi all
This is day 13 which is technically the last day, but to make sure all votes are in, and I don't stuff up a time zone or three, and also because I won't be able to count till Saturday, the thread can stay open and I will post results Sunday.
I will give a shout when its the absolutely final chance to vote

Hi all
One list follows this year, with the placings rather than votes shown.
A different number 1 from last year, but one that has finished first previously.
I have applied the rules re add-ons, GOTY etc, and tried to use full and correct titles for every game. This include using 2 or II, whatever the game itself said.
I haven't tried to use alternate titles, mainly because I don't know the games well enough, and some games have more than one such (eg Fatal Frame) so I could never be sure I got them all.
If I made an error in any of this just let me know and I will correct.
Lots to choose from, some perhaps reminders (I had personally forgotten about System Shock 2 so will be seeking it out again) and others probably new (lots of those for me).
Thanks for participating, and hopefully you will find something new to play in the next 12 months
