A poll for games which aren't normally on polls. - an IFDB Poll

There are some games which are ubiquitous. A poll for funny, happy games? Lost Pig will be there. A poll for beautiful, dramatic games? Photopia always makes it. Conversational games? Galatea. Artsy games? Pretty much anything by Zarf.

There's no doubt all these games have earned their place. But what about all the relatively undistinguished games which still have something to offer? Games that didn't make you cry, but still touched you. Games that made you laugh, but not guffaw. Games that didn't change IF, but maybe could have.

In short, this is a poll for the games that slipped by, but maybe deserve another look.
