How should I choose games for a 'what to play?' poll?
By System (decide on game system first)
By Genre (decide by genre first)
Alphabetical (pick a letter for the title to start with)
Random (just grab ten random games)
Other (suggestions welcome in the comments)
For those of you who are new to these parts, my gaming backlog is huge. It's been huge, then I went back to school and basically lost most of my gaming time/energy but I didn't entirely stop buying games, plus like when Gamestop was clearancing out PS2 games and whatnot for a couple bucks each, I really loaded up. So we're talking a backlog probably pushing 500 games? Yeah...
I'll leave this open til late Thursday or early Friday, probably. Feel free to ask any questions or just facepalm in my general direction. ^^;;
(as a bonus note - I have some games where I know I'll never be able to beat them, like Ninja Gaiden, where I like the characters/series/story but am just terrible at the actual gameplay. should anything like that win, I'll play up to where I'm capable, youtube the rest, and call it good. actually, for anything else where I just am not enjoying myself, same thing - youtube for story and that's that. or a general 'no, this is just nope' after a respectable stab at playing. I want to have fun, after all, but I don't know where to start.)
ETA: It seems a good idea to note the consoles/handhelds I have around and have games for: ( list )
ETA2: Most of what I have is RPGs, but also a decent amount of action/adventure/platform/fighting games, some puzzle games, and a handful of racing games, sim-stuff, music games, and probably some other outliers that I'm not thinking of.
