You wanted it so you got it smile
13 is the number, the object being to recommend to other boomers non-adventure games that you believe worthy of playing in this day and age. They may be your all time favourites, but they need not be. There might be a game you love dearly but for whatever reason you couldn't recommend it to someone to play today.
We then compile a final list as a resource for other players who want to know what to play next. I started the first such list for exactly that reason; I had no idea which games were good and which weren't.
You can't have a list without rules, even on the dark side, so here they are. I have been guided by last year.

1. You can recommend a maximum of 13 games, but you can recommend less.
2. You can't list a series, unless you use single votes for each game.
3. Expansion packs will be considered seperate games, on the basis that the original might be ordinary but an expansion pack superb.
4. Any game that is not pure adventure can be listed, irrespective of genre.
5. 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 rpg's if you choose.
6. It is essentially a pc list, but given that many players have consoles as well, if you want to list games for the console go right ahead.

Please use full titles where possible. I am not familiar enough with some of these games to know which games are sequels/add ons etc. I might shout for help with some of them.
Regretably Friday this month is not the 13th, so lets keep the thread open 13 nights, and as usual there will be a numerical list and an alphebetical list. With the generous help of Schwab35, the list will also be categorised for genre, at least down to those with multiple recommendations.
I intend to post later, as I might have finished a few worth mentiing by then smile

I'm not that good with genres so if anything I say is pure adventure feel free to edit it out.
With that said my picks in no particular order, are:

1- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords
2-Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
3-The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
4-Lego Star Wars: The Game
5-The Sims 2
6-The Sims 2: University (Expansion Pack)
7-Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
8-Immortal Cities: Children of the Nile (Hands down best 'City-Builder' I have ever played)
9-X-COM: Terror from the Deep (Second in the series and the one that got me hooked on the series. Nearly impossible to find now, but if you like aliens and strategy and don't care about 3-D graphics, go for it.)
10-Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim
11-Majesty: The Northern Expansion Add-On Pack
12-Heroes of Might and Magic IV (Not to be confused with the Might and Magic series.)
13-Evil Genius (Why? Oh come on, who among us haven't wanted to be the evil genius cackling at the super hero being tortured? [evil grin])

Here's my very short list of darkside favorites:

1. Divine Divinity
2. Beyond Divinity
3. The Sims 2
4. Elder Scrolls - Morrowind
5. Elder Scrolls -Tribunal

yeaa 13 is great smile thanx flotsam
Although there are lots of older games that I like, I thought I'd mention those that I played recently and liked: (in no particuler order).

1. Tombraider: Legend
2. Sims 2 (PC)
3. Silent Hill 4
4. The movies
5. Indigo Prophecy/fahrenhiet (ps2)
6. Prince of Persia: The two thrones (ps2)
7. god of war (ps2 only)
8. Trapt (ps2)
9. Hitman 2 (ps2)
10.Need for speed:Most wanted
11.WWE:Smackdown v/s Raw 2006 (ps2)
12.Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks (ps2)
13.Mark Ecko's getting up: contents under pressure (ps2)
----------------
OK since I had thought about 15 so these are the games that couldn't make it: mortalkombat:deception and wwe:smackdown v/s raw.

I had to write (PC) with sims2 cause sims 2 for ps2 is a totally differrent kind of a game with so many different features and not just a version change. Obviously anybody mentioning sims 2 would mean pc but I thought I'd just write smile

Im back happydance
Divine Divinity leads the way with Morrowind close behind. They are the only games with 10 or more recommendations.
Games with more than 5 recommendations include Baldurs Gate 1 and 2, Gothic 1 and 2, Neverwinter Nights, Outcast, Splinter Cell and Sims 2.
Nearly 150 games have been mentioned, give or take an expansion pack.
We are about halfway.

Tomb Raider I
Tomb Raider II
Diablo II
Fable TLC
Zanzarah

Prince of Persia, Sands of Time
Prince of Persia, The Two Thrones
Dragonriders of Pern

Wow, you're right that if that lot doesn't convert you, nothing will. That's good mix from fast action (Sacred) to the slow but extremely real world feel of Morrowind. NWN just the original or with expansions?

Just the original Pib. Now I just have to decide which to start with duh
On things listy, we said 13 nights so I will aim to post final results Sunday morning my time. Schwab35 is going to genre list, which may come later depending on how co-ordinated we can be.
So get those recommendations in.

My two cents would be to start with Divine Divinity then NeverWinter Nights. Then if you want to kick action into high gear, go for Sacred. If you want more depth and slower play, it's time for Morrowind.

argh, only 13! I've been Darksiding A LOT more these days and it's getting harder to narrow the list down. And I can't believe I'm actually recommending 2 games that are fairly hard and only have checkpoints to save at. I use to hate those kind of games. But if you can actually make it thru King Kong and POP Sands of Time it is some of the most satisfying fellings of accomplishment and exhileration ever.(and FUN TOO) In other words; What a rush!

1) Doom 3
2) Unreal 2: The Awakening
3) Chronicles of Riddick
4) The Wheel of Time
5) Drakan
6) Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
7) Thief Gold
8) Thief 3: Deadly Shadows
9) Blair Witch 1:Rustin Parr
10) Silent Hill 3
11) Outcast
12) Splinter Cell 2: Pandora Tomorrow
13) King Kong

A query.
The original release of Silent Hill 2 appears to be a slightly different version from Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams. The first is a playstation exclusive release, the latter for other platforms including pc.
They are pretty much the same game, but I am going to list it as Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams unless one of the persons who listed it says they specifically wanted the playstation original version.

Hi all,
Well the top 3 remain the same, with not a lot of change in the top 10 recommendations. Oblivion is the best performing new entrant and by next year it might well challenge for the top spot. Alice, Undying and the Sims 2 all jumped up, and fairy battles also got a bit of a rise, but Psychic battles disappeared altogether.
I have genre listed the top 20 plus ties based on Nickie’s categorisation last year (the genres will be finlaised later with the help of schwab35) and rpg’s certainly rule the roost – more reason I guess why I should play some smile
What follows as usual is a numerical list and an alphabetical list. I tried to use full names and to show alternative titles. If I mucked any up I apologise in advance.
Hopefully you will find the list useful in helping decide which little dark side jaunt you should take next. My wallet can testify I already have razz
So without further ado.....

I added the genres to all games with 3 votes or more, and may I say, another fine job by Flotsam!
bravo

flotsam, hi,

Thanks once again for making the effort to compile one of your enlightening lists praise

Interesting results, though not surprising, considering the audience here. RPGs are quite heavily favoured over action, probably due to most Boomers' preference for story and character development over twitch.

Kinda surprised that Deus Ex and Half-Life didn't fare better though. They both had involving stories and good adventuring/exploration possibilities. Two of the finest games ever created, IMO.

Cheers,
MetzO'Magic

Thanks everyone smile
You will be pleased to hear I am currently whacking my way around the 3rd level catacomb looking for Slasher in order to give it to some large orcish beast.
