Pull Both Triggers: A Must Play
These games are amazingly designed and/or culturally significant.  We’re talking Library of Congress status.  You should at least own one copy of these games in order to be considered fully human.

Pull The Trigger: Worth Your Time
These games are not essential, but are… you know… fun.  You should play them.  Because we said so.

Save Your Ammo: Niche, Negotiate, or Nevermind
These are not necessarily bad games, but we can’t unequivocally recommend them either.  These games may appeal only to a limited group of people.  Or perhaps they may be worth a look if acquired on a discount.  Or, unfortunately, it may be that there are just better things you could do with your time and money; like play games we actually recommend.

Misfire Malfunction: Avoid At All Costs
Subjectivity is not a “thing” with these games. They are undeniably horrible and litigation for crimes against humanity may be pending to those involved with their creation, and release, unto the unsuspecting public.  You have been warned.
