Yes, I do need to sort that out. The kind folk who put it up appears to have abandoned their post. I was considering bringing back the Google Doc list, but was wondering whether or not it would still be worth it.|
Edit - I'll have a look at the list again tonight and see what can be done. I'm sure there's plenty of games that need to be added to it as it has gone without update for a looooong time. All suggestions welcome!

It works ok for the Play What You Get thread. Probably best if one person updates it and everyone else can read it. The good thing about a spreadsheet is that you can track a variety of info and filter it etc. Of course you would have to set up various fields such as genre, publisher, multiplayer etc. and that takes some effort to start up.
Before I dig out this old list again, has anyone got anything kind to say about Pixel Junk Monsters 2 or Hob? I've got both on my wishlist at the moment. Just looking for something to fill the gap between FF7 and Baba Is You at the moment. Would rather not sink too much time into Rocket League if I can help it.

Try the Pixeljunk demo if you haven't already.

@DangerousDave_87 hob is great little Adventure game. Pixeljunk monsters is an awesome little tower Defense game that gets hard quick. It has also seen some heavy discounting so maybe wait for it to go on offer again.
Cheers for the tips! I will wait for a future discount on PJM2. I played the demo and liked the simplicity of it. It all clicked very quickly. Looks like it may involve some trial and error, but I enjoyed it. I only got to play the one level, though!
I'm working through this list again at the moment and it's already pretty big. 87 games and I've yet to add anything new to it. I don't think we've updated the list in close to a year now, so that's pretty impressive. It does look a little overwhelming though, so I have come up with two possible solutions to the problem.
Firstly (and this could be implemented in either scenario), I could start adding pages to the sheet that help break up the list into genres, like the eShop. Action, Adventure, Puzzle, Shooter, Multiplayer, Strategy, etc... Would folk be ok with that?
Secondly, I was thinking about starting the list again from scratch and having some kind of 'Hall of Fame' vote each week in which we could all nominate and vote for a number of games to be added to the list each week. I've only considered this because there are possibly some games on that list that may not be as deserving of a place anymore (due to the high number of games that have been released since this project was last active).
Thoughts on a postcard, please!
Just do something and tell people what you've decided. I find this approach works best as people are too lazy to bother but happy to go along with any reasonable proposal.
