Summer Gaming Challenge, 2017 edition

It’s that time of the year again… the time where I try and play 10 ‘classic’ games over the summer!  I won’t go over the rules again, I posted them here and am too lazy to retype the thing.  My start date will be somewhere around June 1st, but I may start a little earlier or later depending on how efficiently I can clear out the current backlog skeletons in the closet.

My ten games for this year are:

Cave Story+ (Switch)
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D (3DS)
Monkey Island 2 Special Edition (Steam)
Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga (PS2 via PS2 Classics)
Suikoden II (PS1 via PS1 Classics)
Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)
Kirby’s Return to Dreamland (Wii)
Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past (3DS)
Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut (PS3)
Xenoblade Chronicles (Wii)

I’m also doing something a little different this year.  If I flat out end up hating a game, or if console availability is kind of bad for me for whichever reason, I have a few backup games just in case.  This is mainly because a lot of my list originally were PS3 titles, which is an issue because it’s in a busy living room and working through four or five RPGs down there probably wouldn’t work.

The tentative backups are:

The Last of Us Remastered (PS4)
Breath of Fire IV (PS1 via PS1 Classics)

As per every year before, once I finish a game I will write a piece on it, so look forward to more posts!  I wonder which game I’ll finish first…
