Yes, also a consideration.

I remember the first one being the first iPod Touch game I really got in to - three starred every level!

I can remember pumping a large amount of cash into a claw machine once for an angry pig.

The dude just came over in the end and gave me one.

Its probably already on the list, but here goes anyway: Celeste!

It'd also personally be neat to hear you revisit the Kirby series; Much like Mega man it wouldn't be worthwile to go through them all, but perhaps Kirbys Dream Land through Kirbys Adventure and Kirby Superstar would would cover the solidification of the series' core formula. Heck, Superstar itself could maybe accomplish that.

The Xeno games are all already on the list.

BFM surprisingly wasn’t, so I’ve added it.

Abzu (PS4/XB1/PC/Steam)

Quite a short, casual and enjoyable experience this one (on consoles anyway, Win 10 version has a lot of bugs and crashing issues).

ABZU has been on the list since it came out.

On the list already, along with its sequel, and Theme Hospital.

No, we deleted a load of stuff before - many years ago - but then we just ended up adding them again as they were suggested.

It’s quite easy for us to see at a glance whether a show is a potential ‘go-er’ or not.

All we need is at least three members of the team (and/or a special guest) for a title to be under genuine consideration.

Each year’s final 50 isn’t actually that hard to put together once I’ve got a shortlist (a couple of hundred or so) together, and it’s a lot of fun to do.

Three of my suggestions got turned into shows a year after I suggested them so I think your odds are a bit higher than you expect. I was shocked that they were considered so quickly.

Of course it is on the list, but the problem is that it can’t be re-downloaded... my copy for example went with my launch PS4 when I traded it up for a Pro - and I only ever played it for a few minutes.

Also it is a (proof of concept) demo, which is not something we’ve dedicated a full podcast to before.

However, there are some advocates on the team so I’m not ruling it out altogether.

This might be the shortest span between release and suggestion but i truly believe Disco Elysium will be mentioned in same breath with all time RPG greats like Torment or Baldurs Gate ;)

It’s already on the list. To be honest most notable or well-received games get added as and when they come out.

Too late for this year but I'd add Trackmania Turbo to the long list. It's a series with a very dedicated community. I've mainly played the criminally underrated local multilayer hotseat mode but the single player challenges are compelling too.

And the community made track are something else
Re-upping this. I'm not a big car person, but I'd like to see some more on C&R.

Purely selfishly I feel ps1/ps2 era racing (as the tech made 3d racing easier) could make a good mini-series.
Gran Turismo, Ridge Racer ps1, TOCA, WipEout (++Alex79uk) etc.

Obvs this only works if enough contributors want to
