The Play List

A list of games on immediately available platforms that I want to either revisit or play through for the first time. In the case of games without a definitive ending, a solid experiencing of is in order. A good portion of this list additionally acts as my personal Pile of Shame, ie great games I own that I have yet to actually complete.

With a list like this, why do I even bother to buy new games?

    Been marking em off the list as I go, it’s pretty much up to date. I just need to change it from 2008 to a play list without a timeline. :]
