I noticed we don't have a topic for this up, so I thought I would change that. For those of you who might be new to this place in 2020, AlphaMarathon is a yearly event/contest that yields no prize except bragging rights. Here, we attempt to tackle reviews for each letter of the alphabet, plus one number. If you're planning on winning this thing, your best bet is to avoid doubling up letters. That can be difficult when so many games begin with D, S or T. There are some additional rules:

1. Skip articles like "a" or "the" in regards to title. For example, The Adventures of Lolo would fall under A, while A Girls Fabric Face falls under G.

2. Only reviews submitted at this website in 2020 count. No offsite reviews, no linking to older reviews.

3. Reposted reviews do not count unless they were significantly overhauled. Your old GameFAQs reviews, for instance, only count if you reworked them. You can also delete your older reviews here, vastly rewrite them and resub them.

4. Only reviews linked in this article count toward you final score. No one is going to go through your list of submitted reviews and update your post here for you, so you'll need to maintain it yourself.

Let the games begin.

I'll probably be more active during the year's second half, and by a significant margin, but I might as well get my own marathon run set up right now.

"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." - John F. Kennedy on reality

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world
