Hi all,
Off we go again.
You know the drill - you have 13 days to list 13 Dark Side games that other people should play, whether they be newbies or veterans, fps fans or rpg tragics or just want to see what the fuss is about.
Rules are the same as last year:

1. You can recommend a maximum of 13 games, but are allowed to recommend less.
2. You can't list a series, unless you use single votes for each game.
3. Expansion packs, DLC, GOTY releases etc are all considered the same game - just vote for eg Fallout 3 and ignore all its available added on bits.
4. Consistent with 3, enhanced editions, directors cuts etc are also considered the same game.
5. Any "dark" game (ie not pure adventure or casual) can be listed, irrespective of genre.
6. 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 fps' if you want to.
7. It is essentially a pc list (the system not the games), but given that many players have other systems, if you want to list some games for those go ahead.

If you can list alphabetically it helps me count, and please use full names if possible so I don't get them mixed up. If in doubt, I will ask.

Here goes:

1. Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magic Obscura
2. Diablo 2 (not a typo - don't like 3)
3. Divine Divinity
4. Dragon Age: Origins
5. Dungeon Siege
6. Morrowind
7. Neverwinter Nights 1
8. Neverwinter Nights 2
9. Oblivion
10. Painkiller (FPS)
11. Planescape: Torment
10. Realms of the Haunting
12. Skyrim
13. The Witcher

If you're using these lists to determine games you might like to try, please look at the whole Dungeon Siege series. I just recently have replayed lots of oldies and I had forgotten how much I liked all the Dungeon Siege games, but there are so many I didn't want to waste all my votes on them. lol

Thanks Flotsam for doing these each year!

Guild Wars: Prophecies
Guild Wars: Factions
Guild Wars: Nightfall
Guild Wars 2 (final beta next weekend, launches August 28th)

The first thee can be played alone or linked on same account so characters from one can be used in the others. There's also a Guild Wars expansion which has to be linked to one of three, it does not stand alone, Guild Wars: Eye of the North. Collectively the four are unofficially known as "Guild Wars 1". Although set on the same planet, Guild Wars 2 is a very different game, set 250 years after Eye of the North. Guild Wars 1 characters CANNOT be carried over to Guild Wars 2. You don't need to have played GW1 to enjoy GW2.


Currently Playing:
Adventure Game: Broken Age
Darkside: Star Wars: The Old Republic

I am very slow and very choosy, so my list is very short! (I play on Xbox 360, as I grew tired of having to update the computer every time a new game comes out)

1. Skyrim
2. Witcher 2 Enhanced edition
3. Portal 2 (is that darkside?)
and possibly 4. Dark Souls - bought but not yet played... wink


Life is what happens while you're making other plans.

My list includes mainly games played in the last 12 months, Killzone 2 is older than this but I replayed it yet again a few months ago. Mass Effect 3 is included despite terrible endings (opinion of many players including mine) because if one is not attached to the characters will find many hours of enjoyment.

Battlefield 3
Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3
Crysis 2
Dead Space 2
Deus Ex Human Revolution
Dragon Age II
Fear 3
Killzone 2
Mass Effect 3
Max Payne 3
Resistance 3
Uncharted 3
Witcher 2

I've just heard from flotsam, who has been having terrible internet connection problems recently. He sent me a brief email from an internet cafe.

He will be counting for the Darkside List as soon as he gets access again, so don't be discouraged! wave
