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.....

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

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.
