It seems like if I don’t give myself a challenge to finish a game, I just start a ton of games and then never finish them. So I’m giving myself a challenge to make my way through a couple of games this month!

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales

I love Marvel’s Spider-Man. Along with the Batman: Arkham series, they seem to be games that really do superheroes correctly. Since I recently got a PS5, it’s time to experience Miles’ story. I also love that it’s a bit of a shorter game, so it should be easier to get through this month.

Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space

Season two of Telltale’s Sam & Max season, now dubbed “Beyond Time and Space,” was remastered last year, so it’s time to play through it again. I have played it before, but that was back when it originally came out. It’s been long enough that I expect this to fell very similar to a first playthrough.

The Zelda-sized hole in this list

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom comes out in just a couple weeks. There are a few good reasons I didn’t include it on this list. First, I expect it will be a long game and I highly doubt I would get through it by the end of the month. Second, I have a vacation coming up at the start of next month. It involves some very long flights, and with the extreme time zone differences between my home and destination I need to be awake for much of those flights as part of adjusting to those differences. I plan on Tears of the Kingdom being a big part of making those flights feel a lot shorter.
