I'm curious about SOMA! It is unquestionable one of my favorite games and I thought of including it here, but is it a Darkside game or not!!

I would say yes. SOMA is classified as Survival-Horror, which is a sub-class of Action/Adventure. According to the powers that be, the first game (which is usually the definer of the genre/class) to be given the classification of Survival Horror was Resident Evil, which is most definitely a Darkside game. Other examples of that sub-class include Alien: Isolation, The Evil Within and Dead Space, all Darkside games.

Hi all (and Draclvr especially)
I have a question before finalising the count about the following two listings

Vampire Bloodlines
Vampire The Last Masquerade

I am aware of redemption and bloodlines being Masquerade games, and am not sure if that is what is meant by these, or if it is something else. Googling didn't help me.
And Iceland is awesome!

You are correct in thinking that this is what was intended (Vampire: Bloodlines and Vampire: The Masquerade - Redemption).

Hi all
A list of placings follows.
Oldies but goodies reign.
I have applied the rules re add-ons, GOTY etc, and added some numbers to identify the production order, given some titles (eg Thief) can be confusing).
I took Prey to be the original, and Prey 2 to be the 2017 version but if I am 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
