Has anyone done a thread

listing games with a sizeable number of reviews and 4 1/2 or 4 stars? Thinking of putting this together, since I'm bored and want to contribute. Granted, the opinion of the unwashed masses is perhaps not as helpful to the sophisticated gamer on TA forums as the reviews from folks like Big Albie, but I think knowing a game is highly rated with a lot of reviews is still useful, at least to me.

Havent seen anything like this in the month or so I have been on the forums. Let me know and I'll get to work!

I don't really get the point. Such a list will be biased towards games that have been out a long time. It will end up largely mirroring Apple's own "top" lists. And it will do nothing to help uncover hidden treasures - great games with poor marketing/visibility.

I'll start with the top lists, and expand to the forum favorites that I know about such as new favorites Kabooki and Copter kid both of which have 5 stars so far.

As far as I know, Apple does not let you sort by rating or popularity, so I think the lists will be at least somewhat useful, particularly for noobs.

I am curious whether there are any free games that have 4 stars or better (not lites). So far I havent seen any.
