January: Community Picks

This month the BLAEO community decides which games deserve some extra attention!

The theme includes games that we most enjoyed playing in 2021. It doesn’t matter what the game’s release year is; what matters is that the members of the BLAEO community played it in 2021 and liked it so much that they want to see other assassins enjoy it too.

The list of games is available here. If you haven’t posted your own list yet, you can still do so at any point this month.

If you want to make choosing the games easier, check out Enhanced BLAEO - it will tell you which eligible games you already own.


To participate, reply to this post and tell us which game(s) that fit the monthly theme(s) you’re going to play.
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 | Achievements obtained | Playtime | Status
:-: | :-: | :-: | :-:
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

Have fun!


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.
