  • man, this list is getting pretty long

That list is only a fraction of all the games and series, and I stopped at 2001 because of the size of the list. There's still 2006 and 2011, which means even more games.

I bring this up for one reason. Way back in early 2016, when I first noticed this, I brought it up and wondered if it would be possible to quickly put out a small remix album to celebrate this. but remembering how much work it took to do even a small album of only a half dozen remixes, I realized that there wouldn't be enough time to put out a good enough album within a year. It would either be quite rushed, and the overall quality of the album would suffer for it, or it would be smaller, and that seemed like it wasn't enough to really celebrate all these games and series.

But if you look at the year of 2021, we see that it will be the 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, 30th and 35th anniversaries of all those games and more. I'm looking at the list of those years, and a lot of new games and series came out for each one. There are easily 30+ games and series you could so, and it would still have more to pick and choose from.

I wouldn't be free to lead any project for at least a year, but considering we have dozens of other directors and hundreds of remixers, I think it would be doable.

Any one interested?
