I think this year, it will have to be Ovine by Design's new remake of The Sacred Armour of Antiriad (assuming it gets finished).

I think it's about time I put that Shadow Of The Colossus I bought earlier in the year in my PS2.

I have a few games in limbo and they are there with reason. Having said this, a likely candidate should be Thunder Force 4 in one credit. That's a game I'd really like to take down.

Gran Turismo 5. With all the time it took to be released, it's already retrogaming :D

Finders Keepers on the CPC464+. Played and finished all of the other in the Magic Knight series, albeit on different systems, Spellbound on A8, Knight Tyme on Spectrum and Stormbringer on C64 but never played Finders Keepers - perfect thing to start me on my CPC path... < my Youtube games review / collection channel

There are a few games I play for nostalgia, and because I never finished them as a kid, during Christmas and new year. Maniac Mansion is probably the one I've always wanted to finish but I've never managed. I always get sidetracked into microwaving hamsters. Then there's the more recent Monty's Christmas Special which has remained unfinished since I started to play it 3 Christmases ago. Hopefully, it'll be fourth time lucky.

I resolve to finish these before I go back to work on the 5th of January!

Everything on the Megadrive Ultimate Collection. Currently slime-stomping my way through Shining in the Darkness.
It's called a MEGADRIVE

I aim to get beyond level 3 of One Man and His Droid without running out of time or sending those bloody Ramboids to the teleporter on the wrong order by mistake! (C64 version of course).............

Always wanted to play and complete this game, as i remember quite a huge place to explore.
Plus i'm a little older now with more patience to play :wink:

I,m gonna live forever or die trying!

The Chaos Engine on my Amiga! I'm so addicted to this run'n'gun masterpiece that I play it every year. It has become a tradition. :mrgreen:

Ocarina of Time. Being a huge RPG and Zelda fan, I feel a bit dirty for not completing this. I am currently at the water temple but lost interest. Really though I am waiting for the 3DS version.
