My Top 100

Tom Vasel always inspires and amazes me with his Top 100 Games list every month. And deep down, part of me is jealous, because I haven't even tried to list my Top 10 games yet in earnest -- well, I recently started trying.

I'm in the process, and it's not an easy process. I have no idea how Tom does it and remains comfortable with his choices. I switch things around from day to day depending on how I'm feeling. I've just got to let it stick for a few days, and I'll start posting. I think it would be a lot easier if I was strictly a eurogamer or something like that, but I'm not -- I really like just about every kind of game, and that makes it tough to rank Nexus Ops and The Pillars of the Earth? How do you compare games that are fundamentally so different?

So I had a thought. Every once and a while I'll post my Top 10s in a certain category. The categories so far are Light Euro, Euro plus, Everything Else, and Kids. That's the only way I can justify ranking these things. I'll go into my specifications for each category when I post them -- but I think that will work. It may not be a Top 100, but I'll settle for a category-specific Top 30 for now. At least soon I'll get done with a game and be able to say, "Hey, no wonder that's my 8th favorite light eurogame of all time."
