Hi all, first post here. For me, Oolite is probably the most underrated open source game project and it deserves much more praise and recognition than it gets, so it's great to see it amongst the nominees. My vote goes to it.

Appreciate the research. That said, what we're generally looking for in MCA suggestions are well curated nominees that you are vouching for. "I think this $game is the best because $reason." A list of 20+ games with no context isn't likely to result in them all just being added.

Ok. I will whittle it down to my 3 favorites from the list with reasons:

Kobo Deluxe - Addictive action packed space shooter.
SolarWolf - Fast paced action game where you collect items whilst avoiding heavy enemy fire.
Zaz - Excellent Zuma clone.

Perhaps others will see my full list and vouch for some more of them for next years poll.

Cheers.

I googled MCA and got a slew of different definitions. Could you clarify, please?
