Just another update on my oft-promised list of favorite video games of all time.
You may remember in a previous post that I planned on posting my list of all time favorite video games sometime in May. Well, unfortunately, I’m not sure if that will still be the case. Compiling this list is proving to be even more difficult than I thought (if only because narrowing down the Mario games is so damn difficult), and there are a number of games I’d like to write reviews for before making the list itself. So depending on how long it takes me to replay and subsequently review them, it may have an affect on when I will publish my list.
I know, you’re probably thinking “it’s just a list of video games, you’re worrying too much about it.” And you’re right. But dang it, I love video games! Not to mention this site is half dedicated to them (if not more than half). So making a list of my favorite games is a relatively big thing as far as this site is concerned. As I’ve stated before, I’ve never “officially” made such a list before, and it’s the kind of thing that, after the initial list, it seems you should wait a couple of years before even thinking about revising it, lest the original list lose its meaning. Ergo, I want to make this list good enough to stand on its own for a while, and to not leave me regretting too much about it.
I’m not saying for sure that my list won’t be done in May, but it’s just looking less and less likely. If not in May, I will still try to do it in one of the months soon after. I will still aim for a top 20 or top 30 list, however (the top 20 will certainly be numbered, numbers 21-30 may or may not be). I don’t think it makes much sense for individuals to compile lists of favorites larger than that. It seems like after a while they’d just be slapping random numbers to random games…
Anyway, while I would still like to invite some of my fellow bloggers to make their lists of favorite games around the same time as mine, I won’t hold it against them if they choose to stay the course and release their lists sooner (or later. I have no control over them). Though I will ask that every list adds links to the others, even if they’re made later. I mean, if you don’t mind.
Of course, the same blogs/bloggers are still invited to partake and make their own lists.
And well, if any other bloggers want to have a crack at making their own lists, feel free to let me know and invite yourself into the festivities. My apologies for my delays and indecisiveness. Hopefully it won’t take me too long to finish my list.
