    Hi Everyone & Happy New Year!

    With the new year upon us I started thinking about the new games I want to play this year; but also about the games that I always play at least once a year. As I thought about it I started to wonder if anybody else had the same tradition as I do.

    So anyway; what game or games (if any) do you play or want to start playing annually?

    My list so far:
    Strike Witches Anata to Dekiru Koto - A Little Peaceful Days (PS2)
    The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker (GC Version)
    Resident Evil 4 (PS3 Version)
    Metal Gear Solid 3 (PS2/3/Vita/3ds) to be determined
    Pokemon Blue (GB)

    Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!
    But then I have so many games to play that I don't play the same every year.
    I tend to play small parts of games every year though, like Chrono Trigger. Unlocking an extra ending or so.

    The games I do replay though are always shorter ones.

    @Issac I never did try Osu!. I understand I tend to have a backlog of games as well (I still have to beat MGSV).
    I could see that. Games that have choices, minor or otherwise, like Chrono Trigger are fun to do that with.
    For myself personally; I have the ability to forget entire plots of specific games that I want to replay.

    I play Chrono Trigger & FFVI annually but I have so many games in my backlog that I wanna play atm that it'll be hard to squeeze those in. I probably will anyway though because it's not like I need to rush through my backlog; it's entertainment, not work. DQVIII's gonna take me a while to beat though and I love that it's a somewhat grindy, old-school JRPG that doesn't hold your hand, or at least that's my impression so far.

    These aren't annual but FF4, FF7, FF9 and Suikoden 1-2(gotta play 1 first to get the full experience) are games I play every few years or so.
