Hi, I'm Razgriz X
, one of the 2 friends Steendy is talking about(I am not a sucker!!) and I'll be starting the project soon at Ultima I if I manage to stomache it's primitivity. We did something similar to this with mainly platforming games(but we played a few others too like bomberman which aren't exactly platformers, I guess) a few years ago, just the 2 of us and it was great. Of course it took us a lot of time and we only played the mainstream ones, we didn't play ALL of them, but it was very fun nonetheless.
I was a bit against this at first because there are a lot more RP Gs
and they take a lot of time to complete so I thought this was just impractical but after I was reminded of the fun we had a few years ago doing basically the exact same thing, I was convinced.
I guess the important thing here is not to feel binded to this like it's some kind of chore, that you have to beat them all and you can't be left behind, etc. We're here to have fun and share our experiences in playing these games that influenced the history of gaming, that made what it is today. The chronological order is so that there is some kind of order, so that this doesn't degenerate into a mess where everyone is talking about completely different games, though I guess after a year or so this is inevitably going to happen...
It's basically what Steendy said: It's not about the end, but the journey itself. Just remember to play the games however you want, at whatever speed you want, share your experiences, and have fun!
