The Three Decade Project

For the next little while, I'm going to be embarking on a new project. I'll be doing a post for a game for every year that I've been alive, starting with 1983's Mario Bros. While some of these games are chosen for their historical significance (such as Super Mario 64), others are here because I needed an excuse to play them (such as Fable). Read on for the complete list.

Bookmark this post if you want to follow the Project, since I'll be updating this with links as I make my way through the list. This list is subject to change, so check back here for updates.
