Vote! Which retro game series should I continue?

I’ve had a growing hankering to get back into retro game playthroughs, especially to finish up a series that I started long ago. Two franchises come to mind in particular: King’s Quest and Quest for Glory. I only did the first two games of the former and the first one of the latter, but have never gone further in either series and would kind of like to see them through.

So which one would be more interesting for you to read? Should I forge ahead with King’s Quest III or Quest for Glory 2?

Vote: Keep covering Fallout 2 or move on to a new game?

Usually around the ninth or tenth post in a retro game series, I become acutely aware that I’ve been covering this title for a while here on the blog and am wondering if there’s reader fatigue over the subject. My journey through Fallout 2 hasn’t even gotten to the quarter mark yet, so it could conceivably continue for quite some time, and I’m wondering if you all would like me to keep trucking or perhaps move on to a different retro game.

So let’s put it up for a vote! Choose either for me to provide another two weeks of Fallout 2 coverage (with another vote after that) or to move on to a new retro title. Voting will conclude this Friday at noon eastern.

Poll: Vote on my next retro game adventure!

So it’s been a long time — pretty much since the end of 2014, really — since I’ve done retro gaming posts here on Bio Break. Mostly I was feeling a little burned out on how I used to do them (very time-consuming), plus I got real busy with the whole Massively Overpowered start-up.

Anyway, I’ve been meaning to bring it back in some form, and so what I think I’ll be doing starting next week is to pick a game and play it a bit over the course of one week (with expected screenshots/commentary). At the end I’ll evaluate how it’s going and whether I want to move on to a new title the next week or if it’s so gripping that I want to keep on going. I have SO MANY titles stuffing my library right now that are unplayed that I just don’t have the time to do full playthroughs of each, but would like to at least sample them and see if they have what it takes to get me hooked. Like a blog reality show or something.

So let’s put the first game for the return to retro gaming up for a vote — what would you like me to play next week?
