It’s February already? Time sure flies by. The probably most famous/important day this month is Valentine’s Day, a day to tell or show your significant other how much you love them (or feel pressured by society to feel lonely if you’re currently single). To avoid all that, we decided to go a slightly (?) different route for our theme. It’s called Classic ROMance, and actually refers to Read-Only Memory cartridges commonly used for console games (although CD-based systems are included, except PCs).
Yup, we’re pretty much ignoring whether or not a game includes anything actually romantic, instead we’re only focussing on games that were originally released for consoles and are now on Steam (and in your backlogs)!
The list is actually still under construction (sorry, those months just keep sneaking up on us!), but as always, feel free to suggest whatever you think is missing.
Do I have to participate in this month’s theme?
No, as with every theme, these are merely suggestions for anyone who is unsure about what to play next. If you already have a battle plan for your backlog and/or don’t like this month’s theme, you’re free to ignore it.
What happens if I don’t participate in the monthly theme?
What happens if I play all the games from the theme list this month?
I don’t own any of the games from the game list, how can I still participate?
The game list is most likely incomplete. If you own or know of any other games that might fit this month’s theme, feel free to suggest them under the corresponding post.
I already played all the games I own from the theme list, should I play something again to participate?
If it was an awesome game and you’d like to replay it, sure, go ahead. Only replaying it for the theme won’t help you with your backlog though, so if that would be your only reason you should probably think about trying something else instead. (Although, if you have absolutely nothing else to play, you can still do that, I guess …)
But seriously, I don’t have any games from the list, any suggestions?
How about trying to finish something from your unfinished pile? Or actually try some romance games, if you’re in the mood for that (feel free to share/ask for suggestions in this thread). Or maybe a two-player game to play with someone you really, really like :)
