Due to several reasons (sh*tty Internet connection, being lazy, being busy, being stressful, not dealing with LD, etc.), I could test only 50 games yet. I can’t imagine, how some people have patience for testing 1000 games…!

As I mentioned, I’m lazy, so don’t expect full reviews for every entries. ūüėÄ instead, I choose the aspect I think the most important (fun, graphics, mood), and I make a descending toplist about the games for each.

There are games (Delayed,¬†10 Second Card Game,¬†10 Reactions, 10 seconds of fear, Kidnap Commander)¬†that I gave N/A in every mentioned aspects; they can’t be seen on the list below.

All-1s are italic.

Enjoy!

OVERALL

Fun: 18 five-stars, 10 four-stars, 8 three-stars, 6 two-stars, 3 one-star.
Graphics: 9 five-stars, 10 four-stars, 13 three-stars, 7 two-stars, 5 one-star.
Mood: 9 five-stars, 11 four-stars, 6 three-stars, 7 two-stars, 11 one-star.

Conclusions:

– I can call most of the tested games funny. -> I couldn’t find only a few boring games.
– most of the games have decent graphics for me.
– I was strict in the question of mood.
Рtwice as much games were outstandingly entertaining for me than outstandingly nice or atmospheric.
– distribution of mood between games is big.
– I disliked most of the least entertaining games overall.
– same with graphics; however, there were an extraordinary exception: Diesel May Care is a hilarious game!
– most of the “weightless” (=low mood rated) games are not bad overall.
– either I’m not strict enough with “Fun”, or there are some seriously talented guys here! ūüėÄ

Thanks for reading,

    It’s nice to see a roundup like this. LD results used to include a list of (anonymized) scores, which I found made the scoring more meaningful than just the averages, and it’s something I particularly miss.
