So, people are still here, and still making storygames, despite CYS's quirks. And maybe it's time for me to do more than lurk and occasionally do some art... or gripe about someone's choice of language. So I'm going to play some storygames in January. Specifically the top three from the past five contests, and whatever else people recommend as the best of the past few years... with the exception of anything that is REALLY obviously not going to be my cup of tea. (i.e., Tales from the Basement 2)
To-play list to follow. Thanks in advance to anyone who makes recommendations!

PLEASE DO NOT EDIT LOCK, THANKS
I've been hearing good things about that new Star Wars story, though I haven't read it yet. Maybe that'd be more up to your speed than Encaged would be!
Your Fate Like Clockwork by readwithjeremy
I don't mean to toot my own horn (I do), but I did win a contest with a post apocalyptic / dark fantasy thing I wrote. I respect that it might not be your thing, though. https://chooseyourstory.com/story/winter,-after-the-harvest
Everything that ninjapitka has written is worth your time.
Edithe Zilonis and Biscuits and Ghosts by MHD are both great,
Of course Tales would be too much for a pussy like you.
New breed of owl called the pussyowl.
If tales 2 is not going to be your cup of tea I have a feeling my games won't be either.
Especially not WATW.
Of course! That game's super wholesome.
Please, don't traumatize people.
I'd advise extreme caution when approaching Encaged, specifically.
Also, you should include A Tale of a White Lie on your reading list.
I was just about to recommend taking that off the list
That's an actual line of dialogue in my story?
Wow. This is why I don’t read what I actually write. Probably why both of my stories needed a bunch of proofreading afterwards.
I'm glad you liked it! What was your favourite ending?
