Is it a good idea for an adventure game title to include the word "lost"? grin

Evidently not! The game I thought I'd see named most often hasn't appeared very often at all! And I really thought it was a shoo-in for the game of the year.

Well I own six excellent games that have "Lost" in the title - but didn't included all of them on my list.

[Solely due to the daunting task of whittling my recommendations down to 15 lol]

Mad -- from the first post with instructions:

Quote:
2. You can recommend a maximum of 20 games. You can choose to recommend less.


Maybe you've whittled too far? grin

granny,

No games all year. That's not right. Looking at your list I bet you would enjoy Lost Horizon and The Next Big Thing. I hope some gaming time breaks free for you.
