Oh no. Is it that time again? The time where I write an entirely unnecessary post about my long-procrastinated list of favorite video games? Yes. Yes it is.
I really do hate myself for writing another one of these, when there are so many better, heftier things I want to write. But completing video games takes time, ergo it can take a while to get to reviewing them. I honestly don’t have a reason why I haven’t done more animation and movie write-ups recently though. I feel bad about that. Let’s not even get started on all the top five and ten lists I have back-catalogued.
Yet, here we are. I’m writing another one of these while I prepare for the good stuff (like a review of Dark Souls 3), as well as the bad stuff (like a review for Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric). So be patient with me and I hope you can withstand this post.
Yes, I’m officially delaying my list of favorite video games. Again. Granted, last time I did one of these, I said there was a good chance I’d be postponing my list from its then-May deadline, but now I’m officially postponing it. For how long? A couple of months, probably. Maybe September or something. I know, that’s a long wait (though hopefully you have more important things to keep you occupied in the meantime). But there are a good number of games I’d like to review first. Some new games, and some classics that I haven’t played in a while that I’d like to have a bit more fresh in the memory banks before I lump them all in a list.
I think I’m sticking with my plan for a top 20, with an additional non-numbered ten or so “runners-up” for a total of 30-ish games on my list. I could potentially do a top 50 or even a top 100, but such an extensive list from an individual seems more than a little unnecessary. Why bother ranking games that are in the 70s and 80s area, anyway?
So anyways, I guess one of the main reasons why I’m writing this is to let my fellow bloggers know, since I originally invited them to create their own lists around the same time. They’re no longer obliged to do that, but more than welcome. Should they not want to wait and make their lists before mine, they’re free to do that too, but I would still like everyone to add links to the subsequent lists once they are made.
All of the original blogs I invited to partake are still welcome to that invitation, as well as a few new names.
And by the way, blogs with multiple publishers are encouraged to have multiple contributors make their own lists. The more the merrier! And any other bloggers who want to join in, feel free to ask for participation.
Anyway, thanks for reading. Sorry for the further delays, but September does sound nice (it is the month of my birthday, after all). Now I’m going to go write something better.
