Twitter User's "#top20games"?

Print Friendly

As always, I enjoy tooling around on Twitter. Some of you may know of the practice of “hashtags.” #hashtags are a way for people to track trends and topics on twitter (holy T‘s, Batman).

I won’t bother with all of the details, but basically @GenXer and I started, on 3/27/09, “#top20games.” The Top20Games idea was just a way to get lots of people involved listing their favorite games. Using TagalUs and Hashtags.org. So why not post a list of the #top20games I tracked on Twitter. Below are just some of the results. Take them in to consideration, maybe there’s something there you should be playing!
