Hi George,

Thanks, got it - looks good.

A couple of points:
- this document could just as easily be distributed as plain text
(or as several plain texts, one for each game etc.) even as an e-mail...
- or, it could have been exported to PDF... (more accessible)

Under Minecraft, you have "Download the FTB launcher" - presumably
should be "Download the Minecraft launcher"

Under Feed the Beast, you might want to explain what the -Xmx3024M
etc. is all about.

Might be worth splitting into FOSS games, "free" games, and others?
(and indicate which is which - some care, presumably many don't).
