Alright, in order to organize things, I have created a spreadsheet (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1F0jfzJugy4_bqxEh-KnkvgIsonUK25jaFVJgg7wsQPQ/edit?usp=sharing) in Google docs. Right now, it's just a list of game (minus one, but I can't figure out which, if anyone finds which one I missed, please add it!) and I need some help adding reviewers to the columns.

Nice work! From my point of view, I like being able to immediately see who else has said anything about something I've reviewed, and then look up their reviews for anything I might have missed, or a different viewpoint, or whatever. Especially at this stage of the comp, where there seems to be very little overlap and quite a few games that nobody's reviewed yet.

Someone else found and added "Riot" to the list. I just moved it up to its place in the alphabetical order.

Well, I went ahead and added in my reviews. I'll keep doing that as I work my way through the games.

This spreadsheet is such a cool idea. I don't remember seeing any resources in the past that made it quite this easy to cross reference games and review sites. Thanks.

Hey Owler,
I just checked out the sheet and it's awesome. However, I think when I was roaming around, I might have accidentally F'd something up. I don't see a "B" column. Did I inadvertently delete it?
Sorry in advance,

I found the B, but messed up the layout even further! Can someone savvy with spreadsheets help me out here?

Hi Owlor, thanks for publishing this list.

The number of reviews for each game should not be published. (You could put it in a spoiler tag.) It is a public rating system. Games with more reviews may be considered more popular = better. Players may neglect the other games or give them worse ratings.

I disagree. Some of us are using the low number of reviews to review (sic) those games with "bad luck".

And whatever, anyone could cast an eye to the spreadsheet and know who are being reviewed a lot and who not.

There is a sharp difference between a list of numbers which tells popularity at a glance - you can sort the games by popularity with one or two clicks - versus sparse lists of reviews which aren't revealing without exceptional panning. Even if you don't care about voters, the cost for you to look in a spoiler tag is slight.
