That answers the question Nickie. Something I read said Plus added more quests, but I will count them as 1 game as originally intended.

Oh, I can see why it would be easy to be confused, because it does look that way. What I think it did though, was add in the quests that originally were SUPPOSED to be there, but weren't in the original. Or they were there sometimes, or you couldn't actually complete them...etc. I don't think it made it enough different for it to be two games, but whatever you want to do is great with me Flotsam. I'm just tickled pink it isn't me counting!

Hi all,
The results are in!
This is the 4th list and the top two has remained constant. But this is the first time that the winning game has finished top in its own right. I guess I had better finally play it grin
What follows are two posts, one numerical and one alphabetical. I have identified the genre in the numerical list, using last year's chategorisations for consistency.
All errors are mine.

Thanks flotsam. Great job as usual.

Curious, were the counts down from previous years? It seems there weren't as many people voting as in past years. duh

Thank you so much for this, flotsam smile This must have been a lot of work, and I appreciate you doing this smile

When I look at the list it is interesting that among the first 10 games is older games such as BG2, Gothic, Neverwinter Nights,
Knights of the Old Republic. And of course, Morrowind as the best darkside game of (near) all times.

Somehow three (3) Bioware games made it into the top ten. yes
How did that happen crazy ?
They must be doing something properly, those Canadians... cool
