Hardly. My brother Tim is responsible for 22 of those 28 entries.

So many of those sound like must-play titles. And because I'm bored:

Frank Miller's Sim City
The Legend of Kane's Mutiny
A Treatise of the System of the World of Mana
Mr. Ko Ran Ran

Although you did pick one that was genuinely mine for the title. Yay, me!

Soul Food Reaver

Ratchet & Tank Girl

Wild F-Zero

Descent of a Woman

Godfather of War

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Characters
