How is GameFAQs' Top 10 list compiled? Does it look at how often people search for a particular title? Does it look at how often they pull up a walkthrough for that particular game? Is it a popularity contest that is conducted by member votes in a forum poll? The only reason I ask that is because it's rather surprising to see so many critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful titles missing from that Top 10 list, making me think that this is more a glimpse of what people are playing now than it is a glimpse of what games people consider to have been the best of all time. Which is great and all -- go Katawa Shoujo! :D Spot #6, woo woo! -- but it probably means that this isn't going to last for too long and that by February or March we'll see KS having slipped off of the Top 10 list while newer popular games come out for PC and vie with it for Top 10 spots.

As for the rating of 9.1, that's pretty damn cool: but again, let's see how long it lasts. Would be pretty awesome if it lasted for 12+ months. :)

Just another proof that great thing are not made through cash invested, the name of whom made it, or just high-tech; but truly through the love and passion that were putted in.

KS and 4LS deserved it so much.

Ha now all the people on /v/ saying "not vidya" can suck it.
Sure people mostly ignored them, but now we have more ammo to use against them.

The point being?
People will always be looking to pick fights. You should know this of /v/, of all places. Reiterating will only give them what they want. The anti-KS "movement" on /v/ has mostly calmed down, be the better man and leave them alone.

This. It's better to not get into, as The Boondocks would say, a "NIgga Moment" over a game and don't feed the troll. Don't take shit so seriously.

Well, it's no longer #6...

Now it's #4.

PS: and #12 overall, so two slots to the front page top 10.

Number 3 PC game and number 11 overall. This is where the opposition is going to get very stiff now though. It would be difficult for any game to wrangle number 10 away from Pokemon Black. If Katawa Shoujo can do it would be amazing!

I've seen several longer posts here on the forum, so apparently plenty of people.

I could probably write a 1000 word review with ease. A good journalist could probably write a 2000 word article about the VN

Bah! Just took a list at the Top 10 Overall for myself and ... the top three spots are the same exact game! Just on different platforms! As far as I'm concerned, then, you may as well bump up every game beneath Skyrim by two ranks -- meaning Katawa Shoujo is already sitting cozy at 9th Place. 'Cause that's just stupid to count the same title separately in a Top 10 Overall list. [/2¢]
