Well dang, here we are again. I’m writing another blog about my long-delayed, soon-impending list of favorite video games of all time. And yes, I’m well aware that “soon-impending” is redundant.
So why am I writing about this again? For a very simple reason, I hope to review the remainder (or, at the very least, most) of the games I’d score a perfect 10 or a ‘near-perfect’ 9.5 before then. Since I still hope to make my official list in February, I better get cracking at them.
Suffice to say I’ll start to look a little more like an easy grader, considering I’ll have to pop a few of these high scoring reviews out in the next couple of months. But seeing as I can think of only a handful of additional titles that I’d give top honors to, I guess that means there could be an extensive dry spell of 9.5s and 10s after the fact (unless 2018 somehow repeats 2017’s ludicrous high quality in game design).
I actually have a short list of the games I need to review. Some are more fresh in the memory, and I know they’ll score highly. Others I haven’t played in a while, and need to revisit to see if they hold up. Thankfully, a handful of these games are readily available to me via the SNES Classic Edition.
Don’t worry, I still plan on reviewing some more recent games as well. I’ve been meaning to review Persona 5, Nioh, Nier: Automata, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions, and Metroid: Samus Returns for a while now. So hopefully I can get those done soon as well. Not to mention I just picked up Pokemon UltraSun and UltraMoon versions, so I should review at least one of those within the next while. And of course I still plan on catching up on my animated movie reviews, and it would be nice to review the Star Wars movies in time for The Last Jedi if possible.
Okay, I’m just rambling at this point. Mostly, I guess I just wanted to give a little update seeing as I haven’t written anything in nearly a week. So I hope you enjoyed this post, and look forward to my future reviews. Even if I may be squeezing in some all-time greats close together.
