1st official update: November 23rd, 2017
Hard to believe I started the 500 nearly two years ago. It’s been the most challenging project I’ve worked on from a writing standpoint in every regard; it’s difficult to be original, it’s difficult to remain disciplined, it’s difficult not having a good editor (somebody other than myself, I mean), it’s difficult to look ahead knowing that I have 400 games to go.
But 100 are down. And that’s not bad.
It can be really fun, too. I haven’t promoted the site heavily so I shouldn’t be too surprised at my low views, but the feedback I have received has been largely positive and motivates me to keep going.
Look for my next Top 10 around the end of January. I like to give myself a little bit of extra time and let the dust settle, unlike most media outlets that have things like a staff, a budget and experience. Minor details.
Some entries I’m really happy with. Aladdin, Cool Spot, Nidhogg and Tales of Zestiria turned out great. But it’s not always the case – some posts I’m not proud of, no matter how much I edit. I try my hardest to stay away from being dull, bland and repetitive but some games on here don’t give me any choice. They may have made the list, but they didn’t leave enough of an impression on me to dive any deeper. C’est la vie.
I can’t thank you all enough for reading, even if it’s just one post. If I stir something in your little nook of gaming memories, get a chuckle out of you, or an outraged exclamation that your favorite game is nowhere near the top, then I’m pleased. If I haven’t succeeded in eliciting any of those out of you, then I have more work to do.
Thanks for reading.
