I've got a crippling addiction to buying games without playing them. There, I said it, but in my defense Steam and GoG.com make it very easy to do so. So to make amends for this, I have decided to not buy any new game in the new year until I have completed 5 of the hundreds of games I already have. One for five seems reasonable enough, and I 've got plenty of games to keep me busy at the times where I can't finish anything. I've went through the 21 pages of unfinished games that I own, and picked out one game per page. I'm going to do this every time I finish one. To keep things from getting stale or getting stuck not being able to finish anything I have added a couple of good podcast games to play on Tuesday nights and whenever a good podcast comes about.
So now that I've got a strategy, I need some tactics. Particulars, if you will. The first 21 games in this batch are good ones, but I can't decide what order to play them in. Got any ideas?
- Dungeons of Dredmor
- Binding of Isaac
- Torchlight II
Games that don't require other aural stimulation
- Mass Effect 3 (definitely want to play first, as I'm late and can't avoid spoilers for much longer.)
- Darkness II ( definitely want to play this second, as I really enjoyed the demo)
- Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
- Advance Wars: Dual Strike
- Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay/Assault on Dark Athena
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution
- Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
- Little King's Story
- Metroid Prime
- Rayman Origins (want badly to play with siblings on steam big picture)
- Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (I realize that picking this game to play over some other shorter games is a mistake, but I really want to play this game.)
- Sleeping Dogs
- Knights of the Old Republic II
- Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War II
- XCOM: Enemy Unknown
- Zombie Driver
I realize that this is an incredibly eclectic list, but I feel like the giant bomb community could really help me prioritize. Also, I'd like recommendations as to how I should play these games. I know that KOTOR II has that mod that restores and refurbishes cut content, but I don't know of any other games on this list that have any necessary mods. Do you guys know of any more?
