I can't believe your friend made you play Final Fantasy XI.
@majormitch: I am! This list will continue to be updated, and indeed has since you last checked!
@sparky_buzzsaw Thank you! This year is going to be a lot less miserable and honestly soul crushing than last year's Very Bad Idea.
@shindig We live in truly interesting times. But as long as there's a way for me to haul a load of salt fish from Bergen to Kristiansand while listening to Depress and Wigwam, I'm happy as a clam.
@nodima I will take this under advisement! I'm already playing eight actual bad games for a dumb thing on Saturday, might as well make my life as comfortable as possible while I Bounce.
I just finished Deadly Premonition this week, posting my progress on the way to the Giant Bomb Official/Unofficial Classic Xbox Club things. It's a hard thing to recommend to a sane person, but if you're on this website and have any affection for stuff like Shenmue it could be for you.
The mountains of dreck you must have combed through to put this together... You have my eternal gratitude.
@extintor: Super late response but yeah, what worse way to make a nominally fun hobby unfun than to let an abstract concept like time dictate what you play.
@slag I wound up beating it via FF Origins on my trusted Vita, and that's perhaps the best way to experience the original document in this, the common era. The GBA port waters down the game a little more, the PSP version includes the GBA's added end dungeon and a "Defend" command, and the mobile conversions stem from that lineage. The FC/NES version should be avoided, unless you're @zombiepie the Mad.
I've certainly played a lot more than just those completed above; maybe 75% of IV, at the last boss of VIII, Tactics up to the Wiegraf fight, VI I've restarted dozens of times and it's probably my actual fave.
@daavpuke: I may be misremebering history, but my pet theory for the first Humble Bundle and the entire Humble storefront was as a way for the developers of Lugaru to trick as many people as possible into winding up with a copy. Back when I was buying each Bundle as they landed I was actually trying to play and beat all of the games therein as well, and I hated every single second of Lugaru.
@arbitrarywater: Thank you! I really admire your work on the site and happy you took the time to watch my drivel! We were talking on Discord about highlighting our streams from GBCERIX and I realized there were maybe thirty minutes of reel-worthy footage for me over three days... all of which were either using Nose Tork, being painted like an ogre, or nearly gagging listening to ASMR. This review is the final testament of a bad weekend's work.
A friend of mine did the music on this game, and through her I met Ron Gilbert at a little get together last year. Your description is indeed apt. I will also share with you the one thing I learned of the man: he freely admits to having torrented every season of Law & Order.
Use your keyboard!
