Backlog Roulette

Share:

A regularly occurring event - the Backlog Roulette adds a bit of chance and excitement (or pain) to picking out what game we each play next.

We each choose a game from our own backlog that we hope to play. Then we each also choose a game for the other two to play from each of their backlogs. Thus, we each end up with three possibilities to take up our gaming attention until the next episode is recorded.  With a roll of the digital dice, we let the fates decide what's in store for us.  Other than that, there are no rules: if we hate each other that week, we can suggest the worst game we can think of; if we're feeling generous, then we might choose a classic that anyone would enjoy.

On some weeks we may decide to employ a group roulette, wherein we choose a game for all of us to play and then discuss on a future episode.

(Josh: I will make Elliot play Silent Hill if it's the last thing I ever do.)

(Josh: Update: I said I was gonna do it!)
