Hi all,
And we are off devilchili
The darkside stars are aligned; its 2013, its 1300 hours (somewhere) and you have 13 days to list 13 Dark Side games that other people should play. It matters not what you list - fps, rpg, omg - just so long as its dark, and you reckon someone should play it.
There are rules, and they haven't changed:

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 rpgs' 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. Accidents happen, but if in doubt, I will ask.

A couple of comments about naming the games.

Morrowind, Oblivian, and Skyrim are officially named Elder Scrolls III Morrowind Elder Scrolls IV Oblivian and Elder Scrolls V Skrim according to the Bethesda site. However, since everyone always refers to them with the Elder Scrolls preface (at least almost everyone) to make it easier I have listed them as most people do.

Also, the official title for KOTOR 1 and 2 is Star Wars Knights of the old Republic and Star Wars Knights of the old Republic the Sith Wars but again everyone always refers to them without the Star Wars prefix so to make it easier, I again chose the most used titles.

Tomb Raider: There are two. The original game from 1996 is called Tomb Raider. The most recent game is called Tomb Raider as well. Therefor to differentiate between I have chosen to name my preference on this list Tomb Raider 2013. In the event someone might possibly list the original TR that might want to be taken into consideration.

That said, here are my 13 with some games with hurt feelings cry not making it this year.

Kingdoms of Amular The Reckoning
Knights of the Old Republic
Knights of the Old Republic II the Sith Wars
Mass Effect
Morrowind
Risen 2
Sacred Gold
Skyrim
Tomb Raider 2013
Tomb Raider Underworld
Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines
Witcher Enhanced
Witcher 2

Some that would have liked to make my list but got cut are:

Bloodrayne
Betrayal in antara
Baldurs Gate
Divine Divinity
Dragon Age 2
Dungeon Siege
Risen


You laugh because I'm different
I laugh because you're all the same

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Awesome start people.
Oldman thanks for the Tomb Raider heads up. Many games are known by shortened versions but I try and give full names in the final list - so long as I know what it is, I can count it thumbsup
