Hi all,
Here tis. 13 days to list 13 Dark Side games that other people should play. Your paler siblings have just identified the adventure games - over here, its all about those games that you think newbies should play if they were minded to take a stroll in the dark.
You all know the drill but here are the rules:

1. You can recommend a maximum of 13 games, but you can recommend less.
2. You can't list a series, unless you use single votes for each game.
3. Expansion packs will be considered seperate games, on the basis that the original might be ordinary but an expansion pack superb.
4. Consistent with (3), packaging a game with seperate expansion packs (eg Morrowind Game of the Year edition) does not count as a single game - the original and its two expansion packs will still need to be listed seperately.
5. Witcher and Witcher Enhanced will be considered one game (the extra bits were not seperate expansion packs).
6. Any "dark" game (ie not pure adventure or casual) can be listed, irrespective of genre.
7. 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 rpg's if you choose.
8. It is essentially a pc list, but given that many players have consoles as well, if you want to list games for the console go right ahead.

If you can list alphabetically it helps me count, and please use full names, as I am not as familiar with titles over here. If I get confused, I will holler.
Lets go devil

Titan Quest

I'd like to make my list 'The Witcher' for the rest of the 7 slots but Is that allowed? rotfl

Dungeon Siege
Dungeon Siege 2
Loki
Sacred 2

13 slots are not enough for me... pacify

But, ok.. let's just put the first 13 that come to mind...

Age of Mythology
Gothic
Gothic 2: NOTR
Heroes of Might and Magic 3
Heroes of Might and Magic 5
Jade Empire
Morrowind
Morrowind : Bloodmoon
Morrowind : Tribunal
Oblivion
Planescape Torment
Rise of Nations 2: Rise of Legends
Witcher EE

I hope I won't regret not taking a bit longer to ponder over my list... Oh, well, as long as Morrowind and the Witcher are in... oh, and Gothic and ROL, and HoMM.. lol

EDIT: Edited to seperate Bloodmoon and Tribunal, which are both included in the Morrowind GOTY edition.

This is the first year that I've really had more than the allotted games to list and had to narrow mine down. None the less, my top 5 for the Dark Side remain pretty much the same as last year with Witcher easing out Morrowind for 1st followed closely by KOTOR 1 & 2 and then the TR series. Unfortunately Betrayal at Antara (my first RPG) got squeezed out of my list this year because it is difficult to play on the newer machines.

Blood Rayne
Deus Ex
Divine Divinity
Knights of the Old Republic
Knights of the Old Republic 2
Morrowind GOTY
No One Lives Forever
Sacred Gold
Tomb Raider 2
Tomb Raider Underworld
Two Worlds
Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines
Witcher enhanced


I still believe that Witcher will rule the roost lol yay

Bioshock
Gothic II
Knights of the Old Republic
Mass Effect
No One Lives Forever
Okami [Wii]
Planescape: Torment
Psychonauts
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords
Oblivion
Witcher
Thief: Deadly Shadows (Thief III)
Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines


I limited myself to choose only one from each the series above, with Thief III likely being the most controversial -- I just feel that the Shalebridge Cradle area tips it over Thief I.

EDIT -- I'd probably have switched one of these for Fallout 3, but I'm waiting for the GotY edition to come out as it includes all the add-on content.
