I know I don't have to tell any of you, but this is the real list!
We all know the drill. From today, you 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.
If a game made the light 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)woozy 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.
Batter up! (and tangentially, dragons protect the Fenway wall - a very cool t-shirt should you seek it out)

I played Shogo ages ago Jarkeld - I had forgotten all about it. It was good indeed.

Ooh - Drakan. I've been trying to remember the name of that game for years. Seems like it's no longer available, though.

Hi all
One list follows this year, with the placings shown only.
A tie at the top, but both have been in first place before. They must be good thumbsup
I have applied the rules re add-ons, GOTY etc, and tried to use full titles, but I haven't tried to use alternate titles, mainly because I don't know the games well enough.
I took Prey to be the original rather than the 2017 version unless stated, but if I was wrong let me know and I will adjust. Ditto any other errors.
Thanks for participating, and hopefully you will find something new to play in the next 12 months
