FaTD's S Rank Safari - 00 - Prologue/FAQ

I thought a little FAQ might be a good idea, since it's probably not immediately apparent what or why this is.

What is this?

It's a frikkin safari! No, not really, but it is a journey through some of my backlog of games I nearly finished but, for whatever reason, didn't. I thought it might be fun to document my progress and impressions of this project.

Why?

Because of my current educational situation(having to pay nearly $185 monthly and earning nothing since over 1 year and for another year). I'm pretty broke and out of recent titles(besides some of the steam sale stuff) and the recent realization that if I'm not s-ranking those games now I won't have the time or motivation to do so later, I searched for a solution for those "problems"and then thought of this.

Do you plan on a regular

schedule?

No, because internships and school weeks a alternating and during my internships I'm pretty much at work around the clock. I also found over the years that most "internet projects" with a tight schedule seem to lose steam way earlier than projects whose makers are less strict with their timing. Although it's understandable for the audience to get impatient, it's something the creators have to decide.

What are you playing next?

I'll announce the next game I'll play always at the end of those blogposts.

What about DLC- and Multiplayer- Achievements?

For most of the games I already own the DLC, for those ones where I don't do. I'll buy them (since DLC is still way cheaper than a full retail game). Maybe I'll do a special installment of all the DLC I still need to buy and rush through it. For Multiplayerachievements I hope for still active around those games or maybe some help from the GB Community.
