I have a serious problem. I've got a backlog of games requiring my attention that I have not started, or started and forgotten where I was, or finish. I'm going to attempt to play through my backlog until I finish the game, main story quest or am completely sick of it. Further I plan on not installing any mods unless if fixes a bug that makes the game unplayable.

I'm also planning on not using strategy guides.

I've stopped for the night. I'm still on the first world, but the game has a certain charm. I'll probably post more later.
