If I had played the Ascension iOS card game before this past weekend I would have thrown it some points. Great fun.

requisites for contributing to next year's polling? did everyone w/ a write-up actually *play* all the games tallied here? i'd like to do at least one write-up... i'm opinionated enough about some stuff that i could write for pretty proper lengths and not concern myself w/ things like me3's intolerable ending. i am an a+ student.

I, for one, didn't play any of the games I wrote about

lamp's comments on RH are accurate:

with radiant historia i think of that old vaudeville joke that the simpsons ripped off where homer tries to by the monkeys paw: it has an innovative and reasonably challenging battle system! thats good! but it still requires some tedious grinding! thats bad! it tries to tell an ambitious, complicated story about the cost of war! thats good! it does so with dialogue shorn of any nuance or ambiguity! thats bad! &c &c &c.

I still liked it a ton.
