What to play next?

While I can have a level of certainty that the games in The List! are all worth playing, there are, of course, titles that I am more excited about playing than others. I do not want to accidentally burn through those titles early in the process.

Here is the solution: I have divided the game into 5 different pots based on how excited I am to play them, pot one being for the most excited, pot five the least.

For round one I will play from the pots in the following order: 1 – 5 – 3 – 4 – 2. This is because I have already begun playing Planetfall from Pot 1.

In all subsequent rounds I will play from the pots in the following order: 5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1.

To begin with I will be hand selecting the games played for each round.
