I've been getting back into gaming lately, but even then, looking at my extensive game collection, I realized there were many I'd never get back to. Some games never got passed up in re-sale, but looking back on them, I kept thinking was I ever really going to play this again?
So I made a rule for myself. If I kept a game, I had to beat in in 2011.
I compiled a list of all the games I have to beat, and I thought it would be fun to blog about them all on livejournal. So that's exactly what I'll do.
I'll keep two games running at once--one console game, one handheld.
If the audience at home would like to play along, the first handheld game is to be Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The console game is Pikmin!
And finally, the masterlist:
