It’s been a while (5 years) since we have done a list and so we thought we would bring it back, but with a bit of a twist.
At this stage I am intersted in your thoughts about what is proposed. If no one likes the idea I can do something else
First things first, we are adding Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect to the Hall of Fame. It featured prominently since its release and came first more than once. Plus Tex deserves to be in there.
With respect to the list, you may remember it was a way to help other boomers work out what to play next. The collective wisdom of all of us would identify various possibilities.
That is still the objective but between the previous lists and the HoF we have a lot of recommendations about 'older' games and so we want to try and unearth more recent games. We propose therefore that this year we do the following:
- you can list up to 10 games
- 5 of those can be released whenever
- the other 5 need to have been released in (lets say) the last 5 years
As far as "released in the last 5 years" is concerned, take it as being any game released in 2018 to the current date. That picks up a bit of overlap with our last list and everything since.
You wouldn't have to list 10 games if you didn't want to, and more than 5 can be 'recent'. The only real hard and fast rule is that you can only have 5 selections pre-2018.
We would start the list in a couple more months, but in the meantime, let me know what you think.
