I get it, I really do. I can see why the Legend of Zelda is so near and dear to the hearts of so many. In 1986 when it was released, it was a game changer. A big-budget title, well-polished, with intriguing puzzles and gameplay that was downright fun.

  • Purchased: 10/22/13
  • Acquired Via: Humble Bundle
  • Purchase Price: $0.91
  • Cost/hour played: $0.10

Almost three months ago, I announced a new project to play through my catalog of games. Since then, I've succeeded in completing exactly zero games and expanding my catalog by some two dozen. In fact, it's taken me the last two months and three weeks to play through exactly 5.1 hours of the game Anodyne, a rate of 3.74 minutes of game play per day. At this rate, it would take about 300 years to get through all of the games that I want to play.
