I love looking at geeklists to check out options, points of view, new games, etc. A while back (a few years now) there was a flourish of wargamey geeklists that caught my attention on a range of topics which was quite fun.

Just wondering why the wargaming fraternity doesn't post as many geeklists as the mainstream gamer....

All the good geeklists have been done and anything else is just a rehash (apart from the GMT, MMP etc p500 lists of course!).

Everyone is too busy that we don't have time to do new geeklists!

Too many games, too little time, ... and family, friends, etc.

Wargamers (bless their little cotton socks) are a quiet bunch and aren't as extroverted and verbal as other gamers. (No I hear you say. That can't be!)

There are a lot less wargamers than general gamers and that is why there are less (proportionally) wargame geeklists.

We're all getting lazier as we get older. Hmmm ... sounds like me!

BGG is not THE Wargame-community, whereas it is THE Boardgame-Community. I suppose quite a few Wargamers are very active on other sites such as consimworld and less active here on BGG

GeekLists on historical subjects are great.

Such projects involve actual work like doing research and finding appropriate images, as opposed to a GeekList about silly stuff that includes Busen Memo.

Maybe we don't do as many geeklists because we don't enjoy the repetition?
