I kinda doubt this wil get much traction but here we go regardless.
Next month, ie tomorrow, I plan to do one of those self imposed challenge things.

And that is to play nothing but Wii U games for the entire month of June.
It helps thats i have a fairly decent Wii U library, so it wont be too rough.

...Hopefully.

Anybody else ever done something like this ?

Oooh. I have not but I like the idea. Are you playing just games designed for WiiU, or are you including virtual console titles?

You do any other months? Genuary (only Genesis/mega drive)? PC EnJune?

@HoyeBoye Just WiiU games.
I don't have any VC games ( and don't like motion controls so the Wii is a no go)
I've done other attemps like xbox only in January
And Saturntember in September.

I got so many games and so many consoles that half the time i don't even know what to choose.
By artificially limiting myself, I will play games and consoles i haven't even glanced at in months.

@KitsuneNight that’s a good way to go about it, but it’s even better if you actually enjoy it as well, which is why it’s something that wouldn’t work for me because i may get bored . i presume youre more of a single player gamer ? because it could also be difficult to concentrate on getting through a backlog if some good ol PvP is calling you for your daily dose 😆

good luck to you though , june is halfway over anyway

@nomither6
Yeah, I am primarily a single player, so it generally does work out for me.

@HoyeBoye
Well enough i guess , I played less games then I thought I would, but put more time in the ones i did play.
So far i played Amazing Spiderman ( which is a game i like )
Mario Kart 8
Sonic Racing Transformed
Hyrule Wariors
Tekken Tag 2
Smash Bros
Lego Marvel Superheroes
And Need For Speed Most Wanted.

Gave up on that last one, it might be me or the port but the controls seems overly twitch and half the time i was fighting them.

But I stick more with one game, than what i usually do, and that's hop from one to another and get bored easily.
That's I suppose another point of this whole endavour, play the games i got and stick to them.

I would like to do this for my switch library. I should pick a month too. This sounds totally fun!

Oh and sorry for not answering the question, but yes, I’ve done this numerous times in my life. Works like a charm!

@KitsuneNight
Are you suggesting July as a month or making a pun? Either way that’s probably a decent pick, but before that I have some things with my ps2 backlog I plan to clear first so hopefully that won’t take forever xD.

@Yousef-
Both.
These things usually have a groan worthy pun for a title.
Junetendo
Megadrive March
Saturntember
Doscember
Septandy
GPU June

And its easier to start and keep track of things if you actually start and the beginning of a month.
I think we all have a backlog.
This kind of challenge is more to limit your self to a single platform and play what you got.
Xbox 360 for me in July.

I’m aware of all this and understand the process. I was trying to figure out a pun myself xD.
I was thinking maybe of “Julytendo” and if that doesn’t work out, maybe “Augestendo”.
Then again, the sooner I start something, the more likely I am finish it.

@Yousef-
Or at least commit to it.
I wanted to play only Mac games in March.
That didn't work out.

Yousef-

Well… today I toyed around to gauge my interest in the marathon.
I’ve not only cleared a game from my switch backlog, but even made a sheet to keep track. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13Vd4m42PAe6vA3nTtyp-b...

I feel much more confident in starting a “month of Nintendo” once June passes. This feels like it’ll be surprisingly doable. I’m actually looking forward to it.

@Yousef- You’ve definitely got enough on there to keep you busy for a month. I took a business trip recently and only brought my Playdate. Made me realize that there are games from the original 24 release titles that I’ve never even played. I’m toying with the idea of trying my solo gaming in July be all on playdate. Pulydate?
