Happy Thursday and the first day of February!
I have a ton of games stashed in my bedroom and office. How many of them have I played? I don’t know, but I don’t think the list is very long.
I review books on my writing blog and for the first three months of 2018, I decided I wasn’t going to buy any new books. I’m only going to read and review books I already own that have been collecting dust on my bookshelves.
Now that we’re a month into the new year I decided to do the same thing with my collection of games.
The Switch came out a little less than a year ago and I’ve played a good amount of new games on that. More games will be coming out and if I get any opportunities for review copies or if Kris decides to spend her own money on new games, that’s fine. I’ll allow that to be a cheat for myself.
For my own personal reviews though I’m going to be playing games I’ve had for a while. I’ve already played Luigi’s Mansion Dark Moon and I’m currently playing Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Happy Home is a game I’ve owned since it came out and never played.
I don’t know what I’ll be playing in the future, but I’m going to go through my handheld games and some old Gamecube, Wii, or Wii U games. I’m sure some Switch games will be thrown into the mix. I’ve had Has Been Heroes since we got the Switch and still have yet to play it.
I think this will be a great way to clear out my backlog as well as attempt to save money in a way. I don’t know about you, but I always look at my games, decide I have nothing to play, then hop onto the eShop and download something new.
With so much hype with new games for the Switch, I’m looking forward to looking back at some older games for a while.
