Oh lord, I’m doing this again, aren’t I? Well, let’s skip the crap and cut to the chase.
My recent review of Dragon Ball FighterZ was my 285th video game review here at Wizard Dojo. That means I have only 15 more games to review to hit the 300 milestone. As stated at the start of the year, hitting that 300 milestone will be something of a segue for me to finally get around to making my long-promised list of all-time favorite video games.
But first (oh, damn it!)…
Okay, so during (and after) the trek to 300, I will also be making a few other video game related lists to build up to the big one. Because, well, doing my all-time favorites list first would kind of undermine the others, don’t ya think?
I’m still going to try my best to not postpone all of this for too much longer, so hopefully you won’t be too mad at me for delaying my favorite games list once again. I don’t even know why I keep writing these things about it. Who besides me is all that interested in knowing my favorite games? I guess since I first mentioned making this list some time ago, I just feel a wee bit guilty that I keep going back on it. Yeah, that’s it. I’m totally not just writing these for the sake of writing something…
Okay, so basically, along with the 300 reviews milestone, my other big idea leading up to the big list is to make an updated version of My Game of the Year for Every Year of My Life. I’ve noticed more and more people in my blogging circle have started doing this, and cited others as the originators of the idea. But I did it first, damn it! Okay, so there’s probably plenty of people out there who thought of similar ideas in the past, but as far as my blogging circle goes, it was my idea!
Anyway, the new version of my Game of the Years will be made into a sub-page on this site, as opposed to a blog like last time. This way, I can update it every year after my annual awards.
In addition to reaching 300 game reviews and re-making my Games of the Years list, there are a couple of other video game related lists I’d like to do before I make my ultimate list of (probably 30) favorite video games of all time. Though whether or not I get around to doing all or just some of them beforehand just depends on how quickly I can get them done. Here’s what I have planned.
- Top 10 Nintendo Platforms
- Top 10 Nintendo Franchises
- Top 10 SNES Games
- Top 10 Switch Games (so far)
- Top 10 PS4 Games
- Top 10 Indie Games
- Top 10 Retro Games
- Top 10 Greatest Flawed Video Games
- Top 10 Multiplayer Games
- Top 10 Games from my Childhood
- Top 10 Video Game Soundtracks (maybe separated by retro and modern?)
- Top 10 Video Game Villains (and maybe heroes)
There are other such lists I’d like to get around to – top 10 N64 games, a revised version of my top 10 Wii U games (though that one seems to be becoming redundant with how it seems every Wii U game is becoming a Switch game) – but since I want to actually get to making my favorite games list, I have to narrow things down to the ones I want to do the most. Obviously, the last two lists that I…uhh… listed… don’t necessarily need to be done before my favorite games list, but they’d be nice to do, at any rate.
Anyway, I hope you look forward to whatever I write, and I really hope I can get around to writing all these as soon as possible. Thanks!
