  1. Well, I think you should try ALL GAMES, not just those everybody is posting about. Bad thing is, that’s about impossible in the given time… :(

      Yeah, those Best Of lists usually assume that people only have limited time available ;)

      Exactly, you can’t play all the games and that’s why, for me, it’s nice to make some little selection like this. I often discover games thanks to others selections.

      I’ve played more than 100 games and I’m not just looking for top entries, I play everything. But one of the reward of the LD is also to be able to play to inspiring games. The games I’ve selected are games I really liked despite their success or not.

      • Yeah, I just keep forgetting that “You should play these games!” doesn’t mean “You shouldn’t play any other games!”. It just sounds like that to me. Also, I fear that many of those people with limited time available only check games from those lists, which are, naturally, a very subjective thing. This tends to focus player’s attention to a few games, mostly those that have gotten enough attention, anyway. But i guess that’s the way it works in a compo/jam with so many entries you can’t play them all… Still makes me sad! :(
