A new month brings about a new video game to continue my one game a month challenge. The success of last month’s video game selection has me feeling confident that I can tackle the next game on my list. Picking the next one is a hard process to think about with so many games waiting for their turn in the spotlight, but it has to be done in order to keep me really focused on getting to the end of a game.
This month’s pick will be Saints Row 2. It’s a much older game for the Xbox 360, and I managed to finish Saints Row: The Third before finishing this game. And no, I don’t have Saints Row 4, but I hope to own that game at some point.
Why is this my video game pick for March? Similar to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, I was playing the game consistently when a friend gave it to me a few years ago as a birthday gift, back when I was a relatively new Xbox owner and I didn’t have the current library of games I have now. What typically ends up being the case for me, I get too busy to pick up and play the game again or I become easily distracted with a shiny new game.
I know I have gotten pretty far with the game and I’m thinking the amount of main story missions I have left to play won’t be too overwhelming. I’m a big fan of the absurdity that goes on in the Saints Row series and diving back into the game won’t be too difficult at all.
Will I lead the Saints into victory and paint the city of Stillwater purple? Check back for my progress report toward the end of this month!
