That's a lot of games! Apologies for some of the genres I've put there - the line between Platformer and Run and Gunner is very fine, for example. But they're just there to tell you what sort of game to expect if you've never heard of them. Since there are so many you can vote for up to three entries. I'll count up the votes in a few days and select the two games with the most votes. Since there are so many games and so few of us, I suspect there will be quite a few ties, but we've probably got time to vote again between them if there are. Perhaps we should limit the number of nominations people can make each game to avoid this? Vote away! Please include the game number you're voting for too, so I can distinguish between the two Golden Axes, for example.
