i dont like the stickied idea. I cant speak for everyone of course but I know about a lot of these games already and I would prefer that the first thread on every page of the Other Games section is this thread, FOREVER.

I wont be reading it that much and most of us here are regulars anyway, so why a sticky? Just so we dont get the occasional thread aksing about free games? We dont have any stickies yet and I like my forum un-polluted and non-stickied, thanks.

It'll just be the first post on the first page. Not on every page. Of course, it all depends on how toady feels about it.

Or let people bump it once some new people start asking?

That's kinda been tried and failed in the past. Sticky is the most reliable way IMO.

That's because people are 'tards and make new posts instead of Necroing.

I think a might start a trend that whenever someone makes a new post and claims they know there's an older one, I will necro the older one.

I'm an ass like that about things I dislike.

Sticky sounds like a good idea, if you ask me :D

Off to a good start... 110 games.

Most of them freeware, the rest are a bunch of em freemiums. 

May want to think of separating online exclusive games from the list later...  Since that can bloat so easily.  Plus, there are already sites that list a bunch of em out. 
Perhaps we could cut off the online exclusives that don't have a b12 community/presence...

I have a collection folder thing for this, so it'd be easy enough to make separate sheets for stuff. Or just make a new sheet inside this file. Whatever's easiest. But that's if people think it's worth doing.

Interesting, if it's not abused it could be a very good "living" sticky.

I noticed some flash games are being listed, it could suddenly overbloat the list considering the more than gigantic amount of flash games that are free.

Maybe it could be more interesting to keep flash games in a separate google document.

Yes. For the time being, let's keep flash games off this sheet. Someone can start a new sheet within the document for flash games though.

I'm adding a column for the OSs these games run on since that would be good to know for people.

Also added a sheet for flash games/

Please do that. That used to be a sort-of trend, but it somehow stopped being one.

Hey, is there actually a thread about Noctis somewhere? If not, I should make one... although with this new claimed policy, I should make one anyways. Then it will be two threads and the top and become twice as popular! ;)
