Game Diary - April 23, 2009: Games For My Break

I am beginning to look ahead to the week I'm taking off before starting at my next job. Here's my ambitious gaming playlist for that week:

"Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts" - I'm a big "Banjo" fan, but haven't touched this game in several months. I'd like to get back to it.

"The Godfather II" - I have played only about an hour of this game, but was fascinated by the gameplay. I'm going back to it.

"Valkyria Chronicles" - See "The Godfather II"

"F.E.A.R. 2" - I've played through two levels and want to see this one through, if for no other reason than to experience at least one Monolith game in full.

"MadWorld" - Seems too important not to play.

"Run Factory Frontier" - I dabbled in this gardening/dungeon-crawling Wii game about a month ago. I don't see myself playing through it, but I'd like to go back.

"Order Up!"  - This is my favorite cooking game. I want to get a perfect rating in at least one of the game's restaurants.

"de Blob" - This game is fantastic. I finally have time to return to it.

"Mushroom Men" - I was going to abandon this Wii adventure game, but as I've written recently, the soundtrack hooked me.

"Persona 4" - I don't have this game, but a friend has offered a spare copy to me for my break.

"Cubello," "Bit.Trip Beat," "Bonsai Barber," "World of Goo" - I'm on a WiiWare kick and want to play more of each of these.

So... which of these would you play first?
