Right, I can find the most popular games easily enough... I'm looking for the quirky games that aren't necessarily popular - but those with an interesting story behind them...
For example, in the Spectrum book, I cover a game called Super Trolley...
It sucks big weenie, but it's interesting because it was written as the result of a "Jim'll Fix It" show.
Another example: I remember a game called "Dynamic Debugger" that appeared in magazines for months, claiming it was going to be the first HAM mode game... I think it eventually slunk out as a standard (and crappy) normal mode game.
