Yeah it would be easier if it were spelt njsikora but it doesn't look as cool does it?

Today I got my collection of Gamecube games back after moving house. With those 27 games I got some of the greatest games ever made. And Donkey Konga. However it made me realise an uncomfortable truth.

Of the 25 JRPGs I own over all my consoles I have finished 2 of them. Those 2 are the 2 Kingdom Hearts games. Now I knew that I was bad at completing games. I always have been, ever since I was old enough to buy my own videogames. However not until I saw what is I think the longest standing unfinished JRPG in my collection sitting there in front of me did I realise how bad the problem had gotten.

23 JRPGs in my collection have not been finished. Some of these are excusable (Persona 4 only arrived today) while some of them are not (the aforementioned Skies of Arcadia) however all of them are now weighing on me heavily.

So here's the list. 23 JRPGs that I have not completed.

DS
#1 - Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood
#2 - The World Ends With You
#3 - Chrono Trigger
#4 - Final Fantasy 3 *nearly finished actually

PSP
#5 - Final Fantasy: Crisis Core
#6 - Tales of Eternia

PS3
#7 - Valkyria Chronicles

Xbox 360
#8 - Eternal Sonata *unstarted
#9 - Lost Odyssey
#10 - Phantasy Star
#11 - Phantasy Star 2 *unstarted
#12 - Phantasy Star 3 *unstarted
#13 - Phantasy Star 4 *unstarted

Wii
#14 - Breath of Fire 2

Gamecube
#15 - Skies of Arcadia Legends
#16 - Lost Kingdoms
#17 - Pokemon Colosseum

PS2
#18 - Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga *unstarted
#19 - Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2 *unstarted
#20 - Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 + FES
#21 - Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
#22 - Final Fantasy 10
#23 - Final Fantasy 12

So here's what's gonna happen. I'm gonna finish these fuckers. All of them. So here's my pledge, my promise and my mission.

I, Francis Robin Lambourne, known to the vast majority of people who know me as njsykora will finish all 23 of these JRPGs before the 1st of January 2010. Over the next 8 months I will finish them all!

Absolute minimum of 10. If I finish 20 I'll be freaking ecstatic. If I finish all 23 you will find me in Trafalgar Square on New Years Day giving blowjobs to the tramp population.

God help me.....
