I know I could have just called the episode “Recessionware” and not had such a long title, but this is my first top 5 of anything and I kind of wanted to showcase that a bit. Now mind you, I’m not conforming to some kind of Top (insert # here) fad – I had been thinking of doing an episode like this for a while and the top 5 format seemed to be to best way to deliver the information.
Some of you may think that a top 5 list is an easy episode to create – that these things just kind of happen. That you wake up one morning and say – you know what – we’ll do a top 5 list and it will be this this this this and this. Well let me tell you… that is not what happened in this episode. All sorts of research and decision making went into this list. Much like a mix tape (or mix cd, or even *gasp* a playlist) much thought and careful selection needs to go into such a list. Research was done, lists were put together, lists were taken apart, and the final list that you are viewing is the one that I thought was the best at the time. I’m sure months from now I may look at this list and think, ah man – can I do a trade? But right now I’m feeling pretty good about it.
Who knows – maybe we’ll do another top 5 cheap or free games list in the future… hey internet folks – you have any thoughts on that? Feel free to chime in.
Oh and before I forget – The Game List with Links:
