Hi all,
Off we go on our annual shady listing. zombie
From today, 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 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 ya in 13 days (not counting little updates along the way)

I'm pretty sure I will put int the wrong games in one of these lists again, but I will try and check previous threads so I might not make more than perhaps one mistake. whistle

Okay, here goes:

Deus Ex
Dishonoured
Dragon Age: Origins
Dragon Age 2 (so that you can get the whole story carried over through all three games)
Dragon Age: Inquisitor
Fallout3
Half Life 2
Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2
Mass Effect 3
Skyrim
System Shock 2
Witcher

Thanks!

I meant to add that I am forcing myself to let go of some of my old favourites and move on to more recent (for me) games. Couldn't let go of Deus Ex, though.

I wish I had completed Max Payne 3 so that I could recommend that as well.

hagatha, have you played, Splinter Cell: Blacklist? Since you are a SC fan, I think you would enjoy this specially if you loved earlier SC games and disliked Conviction.

Isabelle is an adventure game that flotsam...well, let's just say that he thinks very highly of it. And that he may disown us all very soon if we don't try to find it, play it, and put it on our favorite-games list. grin

Although after having read the review HERE I'm not sure I want to scared
