FAQ

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?
Nothing.

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.

This is a perfect theme. :D Was hoping it’d be the best of 2018, the other day remembered this list, will have to work on it more next year. And I’ve been playing as much 2019 as I can. Lots of choices!

Originally, I was going to set up for both themes, but with such meaty big title games, I don’t expect to make much progress this month. In particular, because of the release of Halo Reach this month. Hopefully I can still get through a few of these (and then some) since I am usually pretty bad at actually playing the newly released games I buy.

Some games I may play this month [likely 1 or 2]. While I do have some games “released” in 2019 all but one are ones that were in early access before 2019 or is a remaster of an older game and the one other game is one that I think (not 100% sure though) makes sense to play the previous games from the developer before playing that one.
