The "No New Games in 2015" Self-Challenge
So I've been thinking for a while about how big my backlog is getting. While I finished a lot of games between 2012 and 2014, I was still not really succeeding in finishing every game I purchased or received. With that in mind (and a thus far light release schedule for 2015 prior to about September), it seemed like the perfect time to codify every game I want to at least try (even if I don't finish them) and get them out of my backlog. I may not end up skipping every single release this year, as there's a couple very specific games I'd like, but for the most part I will be focusing on games I've owned on or prior to December 31st, 2014. This will probably be stuff I've been waiting to get on sale, or sequels of things that I'm clearing off my backlog. Due to the sheer size of my backlog, the goal is not to finish everything, nor even to try everything -- the goal is to experience these instead of just buying the next big shiny thing. I've included a list of about 100 games to begin.
1. Play primarily games released prior to December 31st 2014
2. Replays of old faves I've always wanted to go back to are included
3. The goal is not to finish everything, nor even to try everything
4. New games may be purchased/played
First pass at the list, will add more this weekend:
