No, it shouldn't go in the mag because I've already read it here...

If not a main feature, then how about putting in on the letters pages as a 'From the Forum' special (RG27 maybe?).

Good idea Lee, maybe replace the letters and from the forum sections for an issue?

Yes - good idea. It should make the magazine in some form or another. After all the hard work and sleepless nights we all sacrificed to give YOU guys some quality copy...

It should go in the magazine at some point, but not as a main feature. Maybe just in the letters page as already suggested, or give it half a page or something.

That makes more sense to me, with a few key screengrabs.

GetDexter, yes, I've read the book, seen the film, listened to the soundtrack, and try to hide my listmania as much as possible ;)

I voted yes.

All I'm worried about is the letters coming from readers who, despite being told in A HUGE EXCESSIVE FONT on the first page that it isn't a top 100 per se, like nothing more than bitching that it's all wrong. :?

How about including it as a special free gift with the mag with a bit of info on each game?

A top 100 special so to speak.

Or on the other hand it's an article that can be written and left sitting until you find a hole in the mag at some point or are running late with other atricles, i.e. a filler when you need something at the last minute.

I think all the screenies could go in - otherwise who would pick which ones actually appear in the mag. Could cause some resentment.

Why not do the screenies like you do when you look at a hardware platform ala Games tm - You can get quite a few on a double page spread.

Quite happy to volunteer and provide a few of the screenies.

This list is filled with the must play games, it's much better than the issue nine list. unfortunately I missed out on issue 8's list. Even though I love the varied and unique games(well exept the mario games yet again :shock: ), I don't see that screenshots are all that important. I think it should appear in the magazine, but think that even a 6 page article is asking alot. It's a 100 games for "People in the Know" we know these games are some of the highest quality, I pity the people who don't.I feel alot of people would just become agitated by the list, because they just don't get it. I have to agree with LeeT that it belongs in the From the Forum. sorry SirClive :(

Seeing as it's 'From the Forum' it should really be in the 'From the Forum' section - if there's space to make it worthwhile and not just a list of random games.
