    I'm taking a break for a while from the "Retro Let's Play" fortnightly posts.

    If anyone wants to have a go at doing one (or more) themselves, nominate your game here. I'll contact you via PM a few days before the fortnight boundary (just before the first of the new month, or the 15th-ish middle of the month). Do up a thread, and I'll sticky it for the fortnight, and add it to the FAQ list.

    It can be literally any game you want, any system or computer you want, as long as the game was first released at least 10 years ago. It can be your favourite, total trash, popular, obscure, historically important, time waster, whatever. First in, best dressed. (But please nominate just one at a time).

    Here's the previous games list:
    https://forums.overclockers.com.au/threads/retro-lets-play-faq.1212903/

    You can follow that format if you like, or come up with your own. Offering suggestions on how people can play it easily (emulation in a browser via archive.org, etc) always seems to get more folks interested.

    I haven't been around much, but I've been playing some of my backlog of games and Monster World IV is coming up, it's 159 on HG101's list.

    You want to do that one? It's a great little game.

    Noted. Will buzz you with a few days notice when it's time.

    Brilliant, it's all yours.

    Ah, thank you good sir.

    For anyone else, we're at our last volunteer. So throw your name in the hat for the July 16-ish if you want to feel the rush of making a bunch of people care about games you like. :)

    If no newbies want in before then, it's yours.

    Everyone else, don't be afraid. Here's your chance to talk about your favourite games!
