So many games (2012 challenge)

Post by thingonaspring » Mon Dec 12, 2011 4:02 pm

So... like a lot on here, I find I don't have as much time to dedicate to playing games as I would like.
So here's an opportunity to list a few games (not crazy long lists!) that you'd desperately like to get under your belt in the next year. Maybe if it takes off, we can revisit it this time next year, and see if we met our targets...

Personally, I would love to get round to playing/completing:

Retro:
Herc's Adventures (ps1)
Aladdin (megadrive)
Last Ninja (c64 - never got round to playing this at the time!).

Non-retro:
Skyrim (pc)
Uncharted 3 (ps3)

Asuras Wrath
Res Evil on the 3DS.

Same here regarding free time. New twins keep me pretty busy. I'm determined to finish TRON Origins on PS3.

As for retro, PCE Dragon Slayer will NOT elude me for another year. Also, I'm considering picking up Tomb Raider for the first time in my life. Lastly, I will take my annual jaunt through original Zelda and Castlevania.

Retro wise I want to finish Final Fantasy VIII properly once and try and get properly into Shenmue.

New games wise, I want to finally finish GTA IV before V arrives.

trouble is, thats why i said its best not to put great long lists, because i will look at it and won't decide what to go for.
with less choice, i might get round to it :lol:
