Neat list and I like the captions. I wonder what you mean by that statement regarding Journey. Looking Forward to hearing more through thoughts on these games.

In your opinion is Fortune Street single player fun/worthwhile?

That's why i keep holding off, I just few opportunities for me to get a good multiplayer game going

@ImmortalSaiyan: Journey is one I'm definitely going to write a lot about in the next few days, so I'll elaborate on that further!

@Slag: If you don't think you'll EVER get to play it with friends (or family, honestly, they're probably better at it than you will be) then skip it. The A.I. is actually pretty entertaining; there's a lot of writing meant to add personality to your A.I. opponents, but it doesn't match the thrill of yelling at your friends in the room. It's also got online multiplayer, so a handful of Bombers with the title could actually hop online and play with you if you sent the message around.

If you think you'll be able to play it with live folks even a couple times a year, I'd say it's totally worth it. The single-player is good enough that you could boot it up when you felt an itch to play, and it's the kind of game that everyone I know is always begging me to bring over to their house.

just realized I never responded to this. Thanks for the insight man. sounds like a fun game, but a game I'd rarely get to play then.

So looking at the data of the site's users GOTY lists,

of the 650 participants, you were the only one to include Fortune Street and it has the lowest score of any game tabulated. In other words it came in 331st.

Now that sir is a gutsy choice. granted it was a 2011 release but still.

@Slag: Ha! That's actually pretty awesome. Glad it made the list at all, then.
