@Space Quest, I should have voted for The Dig as well. I've been playing it for the past few days, and I love it! I'm a few years late on that, I know. grin Oh, well, next year.

@Thorsgoats, that is an excellent quote you have there. grin

Thanks Mad for the recommendation for Dragonsphere. I had never heard of this game so checked it out. It looked pretty good and I ordered it and was surprised to find it was a FREE game. Wow! That's why these Games Lists are so good! They let you know about the best in games.

Just logged on and clearly better get back to counting.
I give fair warning though that if Esther thinks she is ending up in front of everyones favourite girly named game, I may have to do something dastardly!

gamern, the casuals gave their own list in January. The MCF series is certainly a favorite amongst the casual crowd.
