The List

This is the list. The list of 1001 games you must play before you die. From the book 1001 games you must play before you die(Available Here – At this point I need to stress that none of this is sponsored unless otherwise stated). The goal is to play and review each game. I tried this before and got side tracked. It lead to other failed projects or life events. So here I am, Trying it again.

The list is sorted by Title but that will not be the order they are played. It will be mostly random and vary from game to game.

The rating system will be out of 5 stars and will be rated on the following: Graphics, Sound, Difficulty, Entertainment Value, Does it Hold up. The rating scale will be represented appropriately by the Mario Star as shown below.

Simple enough Right? Thought so.

Here is the complete list of games. Reviewed games are crossed off and scheduled for posting.
