I have played a lot of LD26 games, and voted for many of them, here are some of my favorites so far (not in any particular order).
(the game is better muted)

I’ve never been that lazy to rate LD entries. On previous LDs I always rated more than 200 games, but strangely, this rating fever has cooled down, and now, I prefer to spend more time on each game and try to give more constructive feedbacks. Maybe it’s for the best.
Anyway, here are my favorites so far, the ones I already reviewed in french on my blog http://oujevipo.fr. This list doesn’t include all of my favorites, some of them (especially Jam entries) being too obvisouly great for needing a little push up. (Sorry for my bad english by the way, I’m not even sure “push up” DOES mean something).
This list doesn’t really care if the game is compo or jam, neither if it fits well the theme but I added this :
: Excellent use of the theme
: Good use of the theme
: bad/no use of the theme

#1 Cure 48
#2 Tale of Scale
Well we had a blast developing our entry, and we also had a lot of fun playing games made by others!
As the judging deadline is near I thought of building a list of the games that we have enjoyed the most so far!
I think these games deserve some more love as well, so be sure to check them out!
As every member of the team has taken the time to play a number of games on their own, I’ve compiled this list based on the overall score we’ve given to those games. I won’t be making any comment on them as I’ve personally played only a few from the list myself.
So, with no further ado, here is the list! (in no particular order):
Go Back (Aceria)
Inu no Ongaeshi (Shmarah)
After I rated 50 games, I choose 10 entries which I thought deserved more recognition and praise. Now I reached my goal of 101 entries, so I’m picking 10 more games from the total I’ve played so far (of course, without repeating games from my previous list, so if I’m not repeating games here it doesn’t mean I don’t like those entries anymore, lol). To celebrate I reached my goal, I’m also putting pictures this time around!. You have no idea how hard is to select only 10 more entries out of 100 (and believe me, scrolling such a long list to spot the entries you enjoyed the most is not any easier, so if I missed one I’m sorry ) but here is my attempt:
Let’s do this!!
This game is beautiful. Simple, fun, polished, play it.
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.
Ok, I’ve rated 50 games so far (and left comments on each one of them because they all deserve it) so it’s time for me to share the awesomeness of the entries I’ve reviewed. I must say all of them were amazing games so it’s hard for me to pick only 10. I would actually like to pick 50 but oh well, I don’t want this to be easy for me either, picking 10 is a sort of a personal challenge.
There are a few games whose level of polish blown me away. I’ve placed them at the top 5 places of this list. Besides that particular arrangement there’s no order in the list whatsoever.
so far I played & rated about 70 games … which are mere 5% of the entries. this is incredible!
here are my favorites so far (in no particular order):
such a charming style and classic gameplay. also a very good example for controlled color use
wonderful style and concept
this one blew me away. it eludes me how people can make such a polished thing in mere days
the amount of playtesting to get this result must be incredible
a great concept and metaphor for modern life
one of the most solid games I’ve played at this LD
this is one of my most favorite ones. I love everything about it – give it a try
one of the few games that already hyped even outside of ludum dare
not necessarily a game but a very surreal experience. something everyone should try out
everyone who is interested in AI, computer science and philosophy knows the game of life – this is for you
possibly one of the games with the biggest commercial potential – I want a fleshed out version on my phone (and multiplayer)
and last but not least , check out my game: Asylum
(but give it some minutes to pull you into it’s world – it’s very twisted)
