2017 Classic Gaming Binge
A lot of classic game collections became available in the past year or two, and I figured this is a good year to catch up on some of the old-ass games I've missed in the past. So in 2017, I am going to play through:
- Atari Vault (100 games)
- Sega Genesis Classics on Steam (59 games)
NES Classic Mini (30 games)EDIT: WELP, GUESS THAT'S NOT HAPPENING
- Mega Man Legacy Collection (
Another 56 games)
- EDIT: Disney Afternoon Collection (6 games)
- EDIT: Namco Museum (10 games)
six19 other pre-PS1 games to make it an even 200
200 games might seem like a daunting task, but I think its doable. My definition of "play through" is a little loose, so for a lot of these Atari games I'll just poke at them for 3 minutes before I give up and move on.
Also, I still don't have a NES Mini, but I figure it'll have to become available sometime in the next few months... Right?
EDIT: Well, Nintendo discontinued the NES mini which screws up my whole stupid plan. I'm really unreasonably angry about this... I guess I won't play a full 200 games. I'll probably just buy the Disney Afternoon Collection and call it a day.
EDIT: Adding the Namco Museum onto the pile. Ten more games, 181 total.
EDIT: Turns out, I had a friend with a NES and SNES in his basement! *wink* So I added 19 games to bring it up to an even 200. Its early November right now, and I'm in the home stretch... I have thirteen games I bounced off of already, which I'll at least revisit briefly. And three bonafide classics from my youth that I'll replay for funsies.
