Hello everyone, and welcome to Wednesday's Open Forum! Today's image is brought to you courtesy of Nach! Can you believe it's not Habboi for once? Anyway, give him a big hand for his Venice del Fino pic!

Well, it's halfway through the week. Do you think you can make it to the end? I'm starting to question it myself. I mean, I'm sure I'll make it, I just feel like it's going to be hell trying to get there. Got some logistical issues to deal with regarding AT&T U-Verse and then just general stress in life. Ah, but you don't care about that. Let's move on to something much more interesting.

Today's unofficial topic will be games in a series you haven't played. I'm a really huge Mario fan, but for whatever reason, I never got Super Mario Sunshine. I also never got New Super Mario Bros for the DS. I've purchased or played pretty much every other iteration in the series except for those two. Hell, I've even played Mario is Missing. Do I regret it? I guess a little bit, but I have so many other games I'm playing right now that even if I did have them (full disclosure: my friend let me borrow Sunshine in October of last year, and I haven't had a chance to touch it), I wouldn't get time to get around to them. Oh yeah, and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. Haven't played more than the intro to that game...

What about you, fellow Kotakuites? What games in a series haven't you played? Maybe you only played the second game in a trilogy and not the first and last. Maybe you, like me, missed some iterations of a long-running series that you otherwise love. Feel free to discuss below, or talk about something completely different, Monty Python style.

Don't forget to check out TAYCLASSIC, where no series is ever forgotten. Unless of course no one writes about it, in which case, out of sight, out of mind, am I right?
