Excellent work Flotsam thank you.

I am not quite sure what this means though...

GreyFuss,
It means we'll have a permanent "Hall of Fame" for games like Gabriel Knight 2, which have consistently been in the Top Ten on the Twisty List. On future Twisty Lists, Hall of Fame games will no longer be eligible for people to vote on. This will make room for other games on future Twisty lists.

Thanks Jenny100 for the clarification. I assume then that we will be going back to giving our top ten games. thumbsup

Hi GreyFuss -- Twisty was what we called The List the first time flotsam ran it.

Flotsam will be posting details later, but I think the selections for next year's list will not be reduced. (Not going down to just 10 picks for each member who posts, if that's what you mean.)

Yep, the current plan is to keep the 20 picks and retire some games, rather than increase the number of picks to take account of the ever increasing pool.
By now, we have pretty much established you should play eg Syberia, so we can make some room for another recommendation.


Quantity has a quality all of its own

I am so amazed by this list! Didn't even enter because my favorite games are mostly the "oldies". And, here they all are STILL making the list. For a few years now, the newer games just haven't appealed to me so I don't buy many anymore and thought I was way behind in being able to assess a good chunk of newer games. Wow! I am not alone!

We've posted the top entries in the 2009 List here so it will be easy to access it permanently -- you can always click on the link in the top right corner of the GameBoomers Homepage to find it. (It's "Cure 2" for what to do if you're BAAGS is flaring up.)
