Games Waiting To Be Game of the Day
Compiled by Imran Iskandar
--*--

Some great games become Game of the Day almost instantly after it is played; some don't deserve the title. These games are games which I felt have slipped through the cracks and therefore have never been Game of the Day, despite their qualities. I hope this list will compel users attempt to create puns for the games in this list, so that the games will become Game of the Day sooner, rather than later.
