MY NINTENDO PICROSS: THE LEGEND OF ZELDA TWILIGHT PRINCESS
Console: Nintendo 3DS
Start Date: April 2, 2016
End Date: April 11, 2016
When I started “The Nintendo Resolution” about a year ago, my stated goal was to clear out my video game backlog – the games that I’d purchased, started playing, and then completely abandoned for one reason or another.
Mission accomplished! Of the 36 games I beat this year (see the original hub page for the full list, as well as links to my write-ups on each one), 12 were games that had been on my backlog for some amount of time. And although you can see a clear point where I refocused my attention to newly-released games, I think playing them with this “resolution” in mind kept me determined to see them through to the end. On any other year, many of those games would have just become fresh new additions to the backlog (especially goddamned Earthbound Beginnings).

Anybody who knows me knows that I play a LOT of video games, particularly games on Nintendo consoles and handhelds. What people might not realize is that I also don’t play a lot of video games. I buy the games, I try the games out, and then something distracts me (usually the next game I want to buy), and I never finish the games. This has led to a huge backlog of games on my “to be finished” list, and since I primarily purchase games digitally, they are all there staring at me every time I boot up my Wii U or 3DS.
