August: A Second Chance
It’s time to give some games from our backlogs a second chance.
The main emphasis is on games we’ve put on our Won’t Play lists - try going through that list again and see if you’ve changed your mind about any of those games. Are you willing to give any of them another chance at impressing you? If you’re not sure if any of those games are worthy of your time you can always ask other assassins for advice on what to play!
If your Won’t Play list contains a small number of games, you can participate by playing games from the Unfinished category that you’ve abandoned more than 2 months ago.
To participate, reply to this post and tell us which games that fit the monthly theme you’re going to play. You can also post a link to your Won’t Play list and have other members of the website offer their thoughts on which games would be deserving of your time.
Please use the following (or similar) format to make it easier for me to keep track of everyone’s progress, but feel free to add any extra thoughts about the game(s) to your post!
name of game 1 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
name of game 2 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
name of game 3 | achievements obtained | playtime this month | unfinished/finished
total: | achievements obtained | playtime this month | Number of games finished

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 of my unfinished games this month?
Your backlog will be a much smaller place.
I don’t have any unfinished games - I’ve beaten everything I’ve started.
Really? well that makes one of us… I salute you.
I already finished my entry can I play another?
Go ahead - the goal is to reduce your unfinished games list. The more you can play the better.
I’ve nearly beaten a game can I still use it as my entry?
