Slightly Redder Red: Anti-Skyrim Campaign

I'm taking an extended absence from Skyrim. After 220+ hours, I need a break. But I won't be just sitting around, I made a goal, something to accomplish to make Skyrim more rewarding. If you read WU9.5, I wrote about a list of games I would play before I would allow myself to play Skyrim again. Well, here they are, but I also did some estimation, and calculated how many hours it would take to complete my list.
Without further ado, here it is.

Deus Ex: Human Revolutions (2nd playthrough)---------20 hours.
Mass Effect 1+2 (third installment preparation)-----------30~ hours.
Bioshock---------------------------------------------------------12~ hours.
Neverwinter Nights---------------------------------------------Undetermined.
Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga------------------------5-10~ hours.
Halo 1+2---------------------------------------------------------20~ hours.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent----------------------------------10~ hours.
Assorted First Person Shooters-----------------------------15~ hours.
Bastion-----------------------------------------------------------4~ hours.
Portal 2 (third playthrough)-----------------------------------5~ hours.
DARK SOULS (the list's magnum opus)------------------60~ hours.
Assorted VNs /v/ tells me to play---------------------------15~ hours.
Tribes: Ascend--------------------------------------------------This game is fucking fun. Undetermined.

So.... that's 200~ hours of different vidya before I allow myself to touch Skyrim again.
Wish me luck.


  1. I'd love reviews on Deus Ex, Divinity II, and/or Bastion. Post something people actually care about perhaps. Kidding. But anyway, do a game review.

  2. There's not much I can say about Deus Ex that people haven't already said... like how drop dead amazing it is... but I'll do one on Divinity 2.
