Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about 'The Great Gaymathon'

Remember how I promised in this post to play, over the course of the next year or so, all of my games--not necessarily to completion, mind you--and then write about them under the guise of "The Great Gaymeathon"?

Well, after a few months of hemming and hawing I'm finally giving it a go--although I've since changed the name of this little project to "The Great Gaymathon." (The "e" in the previous version just didn't sit well with me.)

I've already written a handful of these posts and I'll be publishing them in a staggered fashion over the next few weeks. Don't expect feature-length reviews that end in multi-star recommendations, though; rather, think of them as short, but hopefully sweet, repositories of information.

Each one will use the same format, by the way: They'll start with a bit of basic information--title, genre, developer, publisher, system and release date--about the game in question and then continue on to a snappy review (likely no more than about 10 or so sentences) and scans of its front and back cover art.

Look for the first Great Gaymathon review--which focuses, appropriately enough, on one of Nintendo's maiden Famicom releases, Donkey Kong--tomorrow.

Well, I don't know about anyone else, but I'm excited!

Great! Hopefully they won't disappoint :)

Although I'm happy with the content I've produced so far, I'm no so happy with the layout of these posts. I'm sure I'll work out those kinks over time, though...

Looking forward to this! Seems like a great project.

Thanks, Linnea! This project definitely seems to be doing what I'd hoped it would when I came up with the idea, which is to get me to play more of my games and to kind of re-energize me in terms of blogging/writing. Anyway, hopefully you'll like the posts!
