    These titles were compiled from the input of many people, many of whom did not make it to GGG, so can't explain why they love the game(s) they nominated.  Any title that is bolded I have played and love, myself, so I can answer questions on any of those!

    What about you?  What hidden gems have you found at Big Fish?  Have input on any of the above games?  We'd love to hear that, too! Sunny

    You've got some great games there, although I'm not so sure popular titles like the Nancy Drews qualify as 'hidden gems'. I'm sure I'll think of a lot more but here's another fun one:

    •  Emerald City Confidential

    many games have been perhaps underestimated for graphics or anything else, in my case I also like very simple game genres.

    Okay 

    EPIC Wishmaster
    The Chronicles of Emerland Solitaire
    AbyssThe Wraiths of Eden
    The Surprising Adventures of Munchaussen
    Journey: The Heart of Gaia
    The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Ghost Ship

    The Scruffs: Return of the Duke Journey it' funny Laugh
