    31 Days of Games (maybe)

    Saw this one and thought we could do the same with games, keeping it within the forums for those without facebook (I'm not even sure there's such challenge on fb).
    http://goodokbad.com/index.php/about/31days
    I'm too lazy to come up with challenges but I realize this needs some preparation time and some challenges might not cut it (games in need of soundtracks, games that pushed you to sloppy make outs, life changing games..).
    It's less than a week to the next month so there's enough time to talk this through

    my ideas:

    a game that breaks all the rules
    a game you have to play because of how influential it's been on other games
    a game with a character you can't stop thinking about
    a game that does one thing so right
    a game you're embarrassed to love
    a game you'll either love or hate
    a game that will always make you remember that time of your life
    a game where it's worth getting through the boring early part

    Game you last rage quit.
    Game you have had installed longest without a gap.
    Game you last played/lived in a dream.
    I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

    A game to be born, a game to die
    A game to plant, a game to reap
    A game to kill, a game to heal
    A game to laugh, a game to weep

    A game to build up, a game to break down
    A game to dance, a game to mourn
    A game to cast away stones
    A game to gather stones together

    A game of love, a game of hate
    A game of war, a game of peace
    A game you may embrace
    A game to refrain from embracing

    To everygame - play, play, play
    There is a playtime - turn, turn, turn
    And a game to every purpose under heaven

    A game to gain, a game to lose
    A game to rend, a game to sew
    A game for love, a game for hate
    A game for peace, I swear it's not too late!

    Must've missed this thread earlier this year, I like the idea though.

    I'll add:
    a game with snow.

    I think I'll be copy-pasting this and change some details:

    Day 1 - Your favorite game

    Day 2 - A game you recommend to everybody no matter what

    Day 3 - Great adaptation or remake of another work
    Day 4 - First game series you seriously pursued

    Day 5 - Great love story
    Day 6 - Nonfiction game you'd recommend to people who don't do nonfiction (Don't know about this one, The cat and the Coup is the only thing coming up to mind)

    Day 7 - Your comfort game

    Day 8 - A gorgeous game

    Day 9 - Game that totally blew your mind

    Day 10 - The most beautiful scene in any game

    Day 11 - Old game you love

    Day 12 - Great holiday game

    Day 13 - Great plot twist

    Day 14 - Game that you love that you'll never play again

    Day 15 - A game that makes you smile

    Day 16 - A game that makes you cry

    Day 17 - A game that reminds you of someone

    Day 18 - A game that deserves a soundtrack

    Day 19 - A game that you quote and joke from

    Day 20 - A game with witty dialogue

    Day 21 - A game that you used to love but now dislike

    Day 22 - A game that makes you wanna have sloppy makeouts with someone

    Day 23 - First game you ever bought

    Day 24 - A game that makes you laugh

    Day 25 - A game from a favorite creator

    Day 26 - A guilty pleasure game

    Day 27 - The game you've read the most times

    Day 28 - A great game for kids

    Day 29 - Game that changed the way you see the world

    Day 30 - A truly smart game

    Day 31 - A game that you would feel bad for leaving off a list of comics

    Because holidays and everything I' ll include all other challenges the first days. I'll take 'a game deserving hymns and odes' from icup.

    Actually no, I'll include the easier ones first and leave some time to think about all others.
    I'm thinking:
    game with snow
    game you last rage quit
    Game you have had installed longest without a gap.
    a game you have to play because of how influential it's been on other games
    a game with a character you can't stop thinking about
    a game that does one thing so right
    a game you're embarrassed to love
    a game you'll either love or hate
    a game that will always make you remember that time of your life
    a game where it's worth getting through the boring early part
    a game that breaks all the rules
    Game you last played/lived in a dream.

    Don't know about your time zone but it's the 1st of december here so I'll start.
    Todays picks are:
    -Your favorite game.
    -A game with snow.

    I'll go with the original max payne and state my reasons later.

    My favourite snowy game... I will be that guy and go for Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. It's a shameless arcade-y third person shooter featuring sometimes hilarious, often over-the-top cutscenes and more eye candy than Santa cut fit into Godzilla's stockings.

    What I'd really want to see is something like Journey set in an arctic world instead of an endless sand desert.

    I've probably mentioned it somewhere before, but that'd be Minecraft. Nothing beats the windswept vistas of Minecraft biomes with snow. Feels like christmas every time I run across one.

    *sigh* I will think on this throughout the day and see if there's any point in me participating or if half my answers would just be Asheron's Call. :P
    Support for my all-pepperjack-cheese food bank charity drive has been lukewarm at best.

    Wait, both at the same time?

    Planescape: Torment. I'd recommend it to everyone, and I've gotten more involved with characters in PS:T than with characters in most other games.

    I''m not that invested in game stories but recently I've been thinking about jensen from hr.
    Also I find myself comparing the human revolution reveal trailer to that gits movie scene for reasons.
