May: Role-Playing Games

Hopefully you all have lots of RPGs to choose from this month! If you can’t think of any, try using the Steam library filters to find a hidden RPG gem.


You can 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!

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!
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 finished Dragon’s Dogma 2 days ago… looks like I will have RPG marathon :D . I need to think, what I want to play now.

That’s the perfect theme for me! I’m still playing through Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii (I’m not sure non-Steam games qualify …) so I’ll start there.

How did you “lose” four achievements this month in “NieRly Remastered?”

Skatrzoo

Haven’t lost them, it’s just how I mark the ones I got prior to this month :) (so I have 6 total, but 4 were from April). Feels awkward but I can never figure out a consistent way to do that without being annoyed at table formatting afterwards :p

Well, I have 112 games to choose from, including 7 games I’ve beaten (but not completed) and sixteen that are played but unfinished. This isn’t even counting the 84 RPGs I have available on my alt’s account, and others on my kids’ accounts. I just played The Witcher 2 last month for ~45 hours on my alt, but in theory I could play other paths. But suffice it to say I have lots of options, long and short, old and new.

I am surpised by how many games are tagged as “RPG” maybe what I thought as an RPG game isnt what everyone else thinks

I always forget to check the themes. Apparently, last month I played Yakuza Kiwami and it’d fit with the comedy tag but only now noticed. This time I remembered to check it and I’ve played two games that fit in it, so I guess I participated in it after all!
