I have far more trouble replaying old games than I do starting new ones, so if you guys don't mind, I'd like to do this backwards. I've already beaten all of these games at least once, but haven't played them at all in four or more years, so I want to go back and find out if they are still (or were ever) any good.

[spoiler]
PC:
Bastion
Analogue: A Hate Story
and Hate Plus (these are like 5 hours combined, so I may as well do them at once)
BioShock
BioShock Infinite
Dishonored
Half-Life 2
Jade Empire
Mass Effect
(to be followed by 2 and 3)
Metro 2033
Portal
and Portal 2
Rage
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
(to be followed by 2)

Nintendo Handheld:
Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift
Kirby and the Amazing Mirror
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past/Four Swords
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
Pokemon Emerald
The World Ends with You

Nintendo Console:
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (probably be stuck playing the Gamecube version unless I can justify decking out my Totally Real Gamecube/Wii™ with a sensor bar)
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Skies of Arcadia
(Note: This game took me 70 hours last time. There is a 0% chance of me finishing it in one month)

Sony:
Gitaroo Man (played the PSP version before, but it'll be the PS2 original now)
Muramasa Rebirth
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

[/spoiler]

I have more faith in these than a lot of the games I've gone back to before, so hopefully this won't be too disappointing.

I know the encounter rate sucks, especially before Lambda Burst gets strong enough to deal with loopers, and the ship battles are too easy, but I really like Skies of Arcadia.

I absolutely loved it when I first played it, but that was early 2009. I still didn't have much experience with console games at the time, so my standards for being impressed were very low. That's probably the game I'm least sure of what to expect from on the list - I hope it's as good as I remember it being, but I'm not going to be surprised if I last an hour before adding another entry to the list of bad opinions not-quite-14-year-old me had.

Also, for what it's worth, if you've played the rest of the Witcher series, (and I think I remember you posting that you have?) IMO you aren't missing anything by pretending the first game never happened. It doesn't hold up compared to the other two in much of any respect, and it doesn't really add anything to either of their narratives. And it's got the infamous sex cards that make the whole thing feel like a harem VN. >_>

As much as this tends to get my behind in gear, I'm going to concentrate on games I should be playing. Otherwise, I'm going to be stuck playing them forever.

Let me know if it's uneven and maybe I'll join in. Otherwise, I'm skipping this month.

Alright, that makes seven, then. Scotty, RU, Katty, Apollo, Deku, Ian, and Boo the inhospitable hog. How about [USER=31048]@ScottyMcGee[/USER] and [USER=35827]@Random User[/USER] pick games for each other; and then [USER=30977]@Apollo the Just[/USER] picks for [USER=18320]@Deku Tree[/USER], who picks for [USER=34539]@I am nobody[/USER], who picks for Apollo.

[USER=37303]@smol Kat[/USER], have you ever played 'Dishonoured'? It seems like a pretty cool game. I should take that one on sometime, myself.

If anyone else feels like signing up, there's still time.

I'd pick Okami, but TBH the PS3 remake is way better and fairly cheap. The motion controls make parts of that game very frustrating.

So let's go with P5. Way too long for a month unless you play it obsessively, but also absolutely phenomenal.

Holy **** Mass Effect was not meant for 4K. I always knew this wasn't a pretty game, but it didn't quite register until know that the textures are quite that bad. Some of them are more like smudges.

Also didn't realize this'll be my 5th time playing through it. I'm definitely noticing more flaws than I did before, but Eden Prime was still enjoyable, and the intro cutscene is stellar ( :headbang: ) after the main theme kicks in. Fingers crossed it stays that way.
