Strictly speaking, my list isn't just a list of my personal faves. It's a list of "Personal Faves That I'd Take To A Desert Island Which Can Offer Me Variety And Replayability During My Undoubtedly Long Stay There While Waiting For An Unlikely Rescue".

A list of just my personal faves would look quite different. :D
Yeah that's a good point. I think though if we go for the full twenty that leaves room for personal favourites as well as games with a lot of replayability.

1. First choice would be Tetris (Tetris Party Deluxe on Wii). Sadly this has already been picked so I'll take Puyo Pop Fever instead.

You didn't read the rules, did you? :lol:

1 pick at a time, 10 other people must pick before you can pick again, you can't pick what someone else has.

My Gauntlet cab got me thinking about power outlets on the island an i'm now convinced this whole thread is prattys twilight zone-esque ironic joke on us all... When we get to twenty games hes gonna say "And by the way guys theirs no power outlets on this island" and we'll be like "NOOO... BUT I FINALLY HAD TIME NOW!!! I FINALLY HAD TIME!!!" :lol:

So I want to say upfront that the palm trees on my island all have power outlets installed... And mini bars with a selection of soft drinks and alchohoilc beverages... And probly some cashew nuts too.
