The Making Of My GOTG List vol. 2 (The one where I drop down the axe and a lot of fan favorites just silently disappear)

Previousy on TMOFMGOTGL

I presented my intentions and goals and wrote down a lot of video game names. Pretty uneventful, unless you're into reading video game names. In that case, it was the best blog you've ever read.

But today is a new day and this is no post with just a big wall of names on it. No, no, sir, it isn't. This is a sequel and as such, there are not one, but two walls of names. Double the walls, double the fun. That's how it works, trust me.

CUT CUT CUT

So without no further ado, let's cut back to the... cutting. As I've mentioned previously, games that don't hold anything meaningful to me will not be part of the list, nor will they even be part of the actual discussion that will occur later on. And although I may recognize in many of them merits and qualities which would grant them access to be part of a general discussion about the subject of GOTG, that alone does not suffice in my this case.

But enough of fancy words, let's see these walls that I'm sure you're all eagerly waiting for.

These games don't mean anything to me, nor I think they possess the qualities to be part of the discussion

Oof, I'm tired again. These walls take a lot out of me. But, enough about that, let's see the results of all these cutting (yes, I know I lied, there are three walls. I'm sorry)

Coming Up Next

There's more cutting to be had, but there will be some form of rudimentary discussion and arguing next time, not only writing down names and be done with it. I think.

I know, right? The future is bright for this blog series. I mean, it can only go uphill from here. I hope you enjoy the uphill journey that will most definitely occur in the next entry of the whatever-that-name-I-posted-on-the-beginning-was blog.

It looks like you don't like Nintendo that much.

Maybe it's because I don't own any Nintendo console.

It doesn't matter. You like what you like, you have your dislikes, and you have your maybes! =-)
