Game Recommendation Threads (AKA Best games for 'system X'?)

Post by witchfinder » Mon Jun 29, 2009 2:17 pm

The RG forum has now been going for several years and over that time there have been countless threads requesting recommendations of games for particular systems. These still occur on a regular basis and it has now got to the point where older members of the forum are fed up of seeing them! :lol:

So in response to this I have compiled the following list of links to existing threads with game recommendations. This list is not exhaustive so if you know of a thread for a system not listed, please let me know and I'll add it.

There are a few notable omissions from the list (e.g. Atari ST, PS2, a good SNES one) so technically new threads could be started for these systems. But for any of the below, you have NO EXCUSE to start a new thread - just post on the existing one if you have something to add... :D
