Top 10/Hot 10:
Top 10 are my all time favourite games. Hot 10 are the games I'm most interested in acquiring at the moment.Recently Played:Rating System:
While I haven't switched over yet, I'm seriously considering using Daniel Karp's scale:
10: Outstanding game. One of my all-time personal favourites.
9: Excellent game. Always a pleasure to play. Shines under most circumstances.
8: Very good game. Rarely disappoints me. High on my request/recommend list.
7: Good game. Usually willing to play. I might even request or recommend it.
6: OK game. Some fun or challenge at least. Enjoyable in the right circumstances.
5: Average game. I'm indifferent, but may be willing to play.
4: Below average game. I avoid playing and would need to be persuaded.
3: Poor game. Will strongly resist playing.
2: Very poor game. I refuse to play this.
1: Dead game. Seriously negative entertainment value. Black Hole of Fun.My Avatars:
Current: Jun 3, 2009. After seeing Disney's Up, I just had to put Dug from the movie as my avatar. Just loved that little guy, even though I'm normally a cat person, not a dog person. Squirrel!
#5: May 29, 2009. Extreme close up shot of the love shack, from one of my favourite games, Stone Age
#4: Mar. 12, 2009. This artwork was found in the Small World manual, and it made me laugh. Days of Wonder's treatment of those with unused online codes is not so funny, so I got rid of it.
#3: Jun. 27, 2008. Attended Wall-E, and loved the little animated short "Presto" that ran before the movie. This sad bunny waits in his cage, waiting to be fed a carrot, just out of his reach.
#2. Feb. 2, 2008. After running across the Galaxy Trucker manual, a quick perusal found it to be absolutely hilarious, one of the best manuals I've ever seen. This little "Alien" moment comes from the manual.
#1. Dec. 11, 2007. Due to a very generous geekgold gift from Mischa, I was able to finally afford an avatar. We honoured Mischa's gift by putting him in our avatar.
