I’ve played a little over 50 games now and I wanted to thank everyone who made ‘favorite’ lists. This made rating 50 games a breeze and I had a lot of fun playing the cream of the crop. You guys who play hundreds of games and distill it to a few awesome suggestions are totally awesome.
Here are just a few lists of favorite lists that I found useful or fun.
Volute: Up for rating a few more games?
epic long list. I haven’t even gotten to these yet, but I’m super excited and hopefully can get through them all before the time limit.
CappaGames: Top 3 ludum dare 23
I don’t think I could ever get down to a ‘top 3′, but these ones are all worth checking out!
JaJ: Play these games because…
Nice to see someone make a list of games based on originality / innovation
KevinWorkman: Games with Awesome Songs?
I’d actually played a lot of these before I saw this list, and now I’ve played them all. Definitely some fun use of audio in these. I hope they all do well in that category!
(I basically didn’t have enough time to play through all the games in these lists, but they look totally great too!)
One Day Left (I totally agree about Tondie and Zupe)
ok… on second thought, there are a million lists that are totally awesome. Nice job, list makers! (post more list links in the comments please!)
I wonder if my team’s game made it into any of these lists… that would be a super honor.
So, I can’t say I’ve exactly rated a lot of windows games. I am one of the folks who mostly hunt for web releases (sorry!). However, a few neat looking games or recommendations have gotten me to download a zip or an exe and I’ve noticed that Norton quarantines about half of them. A lot of these seem to be WS.Reputation.1 type quarantines, which as far as I can tell means ‘Norton is not sure about this file because it has never seen it before’. I had to deal with this for ogmo editor a few weeks back and actually submitted the app to Norton’s white list. They wrote me back basically saying ‘oops, sorry, this app is safe’. Yep. Well, at any rate, I wonder if anyone has figured out a way to publish an exe without tripping this stuff on Norton. Some of the exes I’ve downloaded have been just fine.
