I recently saw someone else doing what they're calling a monthly game challenge to try and work through their back log of games and I think it's an awesome idea.
Starting today and hopefully every month throughout the rest of the school year I plan on picking a single game and playing as much of it as possible throughout that particular month.
This month I have decided to start with Chrono Trigger. This game not only lets me just have fun with a game I've never actually beat but also covers some of my homework time. By the end of this month I will have a progress report, and hopefully I'll be close if not done with a pretty awesome game.
