Hi all,
One week to go! Numbers are a bit down on last year, which is not allowed shame so keep them coming.
Its neck and neck for most recommended between those perenial favourites TLJ and Syberia.
Oldest game voted for is Adventure aka Colossal Cave, originally in Fortran but available on line in different formats; anyone loaded this recently?
Newest games include Jack Keane, Art of Murder, Belief and Betrayal and Perry Rhodan, not all of which are locally available as yet (depending on your local-ness).
Looking back to the first list, there were just over 40 games with more than 2 recommendations, and of those, only Callahans Crosstime Salloon and Outcast (which now tends to appear on the darkside list) have not been mentioned. We do have more choices now, so we don't have to bump quite so many to put the newer games on, but I don't think its stretching the point too far to claim that it shows that a good game is still good game quite a few years later. Not everything relies on the latest graphics and processors to be appealing.
