A New Journey

I'm currently on a quest to play through every console RPG. But, what's a main quest without some side quests?

There are many great games that I've either never played or never completed that don't fit on the console RPG blog, so I will from time to time suffer through getting a computer game to work in order to play through it.

With CRPG Addict and The Adventure Gamer showcasing games it's a great time to dive into one of these with them. I already had the idea of playing along when the Quest for Glory series come up. Taking this idea and expanding on it into a separate blog seems only natural.

I don't have a set list of games in any order. I know three things at this point: I'm starting with Star Saga One, will do Star Saga Two next, and will follow up with the Quest For Glory when Trickster gets to it. I made a short list and came up with about 50 games I'd like to get to, but it's not as set in stone as my other list (which is still priority number one to get through).

I may not have a lot of time to do this, but there are many times when a computer game is easier to play than a console that requires taking over the living room. Also, playing along, being a part of gaming history, is too tempting. I'm not limiting myself to any one platform, so any suggestions for games are welcomed. I may even play some import games here, but for now I'm focused on computer games.

My goals for a game may often go beyond completing it. For Star Saga as an example, my hope is to create a comprehensive guide, which will take playing multiple times through. In the course of that, I'll blog about each session only if something new happens (which will for at least the first six times as I play each character).

Edit: I didn't quite get through Star Saga Two (or One for that matter) before Quest for Glory came up, so my posting on QfG is out of sync with Trickster and Chet.

I decided to post my list in the side bar. It's in alphabetical order by genre, and aside from wanting to play games at the same time as Trickster and Chet, I don't have a particular order (Star Saga Two is very soon).


  1. Just came across this today. I'm more keen than ever to get to Quest for Glory now as I love the idea of you playing along and blogging your own views.

    Still a while off yet though.

    1. No worries. I'm sure I'll be keeping busy with Star Saga for quite a while.
