"...End the shame"?... I understood this is about clearing one's backlog, but still, shame? Anyway, interesting idea. Think I'm gonna tackle this, and it shouldn't be a problem considering I finished 11 in January (FTL more than once) (source: http://www.gog.com/forum/general/games_finished_in_2013/post34
Ones I already own and planned on playing anyway (this month), include
-The Last Express
-Mass Effect 3.
My Scribblenauts Unlimited also unlocks this month, so I'll definitely play that one too. So, maybe it's "Five for February" for me? If not more. We'll see.
I'm totally in!
/e: I'll pick my 4 later ;)
/e2: My current "to-beat-list" is right below, I will pick something from these:
1. Broken Sword: Director's Cut
3. Second Sight
4. Neverwinter Nights 2
5. Snuggle Truck
7. Cave Story+
8. La Mulana
If I may give advice as to which ones you should choose, I would stay clear of these:
-NWN 2 (might be too long to finish in just one month)
-Snuggle Truck (first of all, it's really hard if you plan to get all medals...and once you do there are other levels you can purchase (for free) from the shop, and they are near impossible to even finish. When you've actually beaten the game, is debatable)
-La Mulana (haven't played, but I've understood it's really difficult, and a little vague about what you should do at certain points)
No opinion of Dragonsphere because I know nothing of it. Also, I've only played Cave Story+ a little so not comment on that one either.
Second Sight and Broken Sword are very good choices, I think you should include these if you're planning on completing the challenge. They're not too hard, and not too long either. Plus they're good games too (especially the latter).
