This one has been bouncing around the net, and I thought I would give it a shot. Originally it was for computer games, but it's jumping the species membrane and gone viral.
The rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen games you've played that will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.
Here are mine:
1. D&D (in all its versions)
2. Magic: The Gathering
6. Civilization (Sid Meier's, though AH's is good)
8. Project Marvel Comics, which evolved into Marvel Super Heroes
9. Call of Cthulhu
12. Eurorails (and all of the Mayfair train games)
13. Freedom in the Galaxy
14. City of Heroes
15. Empire of the Petal Throne
Ones that showed up after I had reached 15 were Mah Jong, War of the Rings, Mille Bourne, and Guild Wars (d'oh!). What is interesting is that each of the games is attached to a particular age or a particular place, or most of all a particular friend or friends, which is what made them memorable. Cool.
Oh, and consider all y'all tagged.
