@Ralizah Well orighty then! 😜

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

Been a long time since my last post. Generally I've done quite well and finished most of what I listed. Given it was eight months ago it would be disappointing if I hadn't! πŸ˜‚

UPDATE:

Old Lists

Currently Playing:

  • * Super Smash Bros. Ultimate* - COMPLETED. I've now done all the single player stuff (100% Spirits, Classic Mode, World of Light and all but three offline challenges.
  • * PokΓ©mon Let's Go Eevee* - COMPLETED. Finished main story.
  • * Ratchet and Clank HD* (PS3 version) - COMPLETED
  • * Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm*
  • Hitman 2 - FAILED. To my annoyance I haven't got round to this but it is always on my gaming "to do" list.

Backlog:

1. Trails in the Sky SC - The clearing of my immense handheld on-the-go list continues and I've actually resumed playing this. On the final chapter.
2. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker - Haven't touched.
3. Crash Bandicoot 3 - COMPLETED

Most Wanted:

I did purchase Yoshi's Woolly World and Bloodstained. They've both been completed.


New Lists

Currently Playing:

1. Dragon Quest Builders 2 - a massive game, but I've made solid progress and should be finished within the next week.
2. Trails in the Sky SC - Yes, it's been on my list for an eternity, but it will be done!

Backlog:

1. Red Dead Redemption 2 - Played this solidly in March and finished Chapter 3, but then it drifted back into the backlog. Now in the mood to get back into it.
2. Hitman 2
3. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Bought a Switch Pro Controller so am all ready to go
4. Tales of Hearts R - Aiming to replace Trails in the Sky SC as my primary handheld game as soon as I've finished it.

Most Wanted:

  • Doom Eternal
  • PokΓ©mon Shield
  • Luigi's Mansion 3
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Largely a Switch focused end-of-year as the PS4 is starting to wind down. Rather tempted to get the saucy "Only on PlayStation" editions of Ratchet & Clank and Horizon Zero Dawn. Meanwhile my brain is screaming "what about your backlog, you goon?!"

@themcnoisy Completely understand trophy anxiety. These days I don't really care about getting them unless I'm really into the game or they're easy, but back in the early days of the 360 I'd strive to get as many achievements as possible, which in turn triggered anxiety.

Thank you NHS

Previous backlog
1. Red Dead Redemption 2 Beaten!
2. Nioh (current main game) Eh...
3. Minit Platinum!

This backlog was old. I'm ashamed to admit I still haven't beaten Nioh. It even dropped from my priority list, as I kinda got bored of it. Loved many of the levels and fighting the bosses, but this game is a bit too long and a bit too repetitive.

Current backlog:
1. Yakuza Kiwami 2
2. Assassin's Creed Origins
3. Song of the Deep
(4. Nioh. I hope to beat it one day!)

Most wanted
1. Death Stranding
2. Abzu
3. Unravel 2

@themcnoisy I'm not a trophy completionist (have my own definition of complete) but I can somewhat relate.

Originally, when my backlog started getting out of hand, I started pushing myself to finish the games quicker, to the point where it wasn't all that enjoyable.

Eventually I got over that by reminding myself to enjoy and not race. If the backlog grows, so be it, its about having fun.

@themcnoisy - i kind of see where you're coming from, though in my case it's from not wanting to have a trophy list that's cluttered with games with small completion percentages, or just a few trophies.. i pretty much ignore games now that would fall into the "i'd probably not like it, but you never know" category because of it. also games that are massive, or have a high probability that i'll get bored long before the end, i generally don't consider anymore either, as experienced with the likes of assassin's creed origins, mass effect andromeda, far cry 4, watch dogs... where my trophy percentage is in single digits. it's why i skipped the likes of days gone. i'm not convinced it's something i'd really like, or at least like enough to finish 50 hours of it, and i don't want it sitting there with a 4% trophy completion.

i just don't like where modern gaming is going if i'm honest.. i don't have time or the interest for 100-hour open world games, or GaaS - i don't want it to feel like a chore where i have to keep up with the game at somebody's else pace, i don't know what happened to modern multiplayers, but they've mostly sucked since the arrival of current gen consoles - some glacial pace progression systems designed to entice you to spend to acquire or stuff gated behind "season passes" doesn't help either. i haven't bought a game since Detroit:Become Human last may, and probably the only two games i'll buy before PS5 are TLoU2 and Dreams (where at least i'll be able to play the @mcnoisy masterpiece). consequently i have no backlog to speak of.

Keep your backlog quantity low, it puts more money in your wallet...

If you purchase a game now and do not get to it for 3 months or more it will have gone down in price...

Some of the peeps backlog quantity in regards to Price is equal to or greater than the cost of a PS4 Pro...

@LaJettatura You are absolutely right. I applied this strategy earlier this year as there were tons of new releases that interested me but since I was busy with work I knew I would never get to them. As we're now nearing Black Friday, and most of these new releases are already half of their launch price today, I'm hoping to find most of these games for 1/3 of their original price.

Oh my wordy-wordy-word. Totally forgot to update this topic!

Previous Backlog:

  • LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars (done the story, at least)
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (nope; abandoned this disappointing chore)
  • inFAMOUS 2 (again, nope... maybe in the New Year?)
  • Just Cause 4 Season Pass Content (yes, and it was very good)

Obviously the biggest scalp since September has been Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which I've not only played twice but also gotten the platinum trophy for (he says the day before its Photo Mode finally drops so yeah, expect a third playthrough to take up most of my holidays)!

I also played and completed numerous games for which I've written reviews, including Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb on PC, a trio of James Bond 007 games on PSone, The Simpsons Game and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas on PS3 and ABZΓ› on PS4. There was also the surprise port of Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast on PS4, which came and went pretty quickly. Yesterday I managed to complete another PC game, and I'm currently working on its long-form review. Chuck in a couple evenings mucking about with random, enjoyable distractions, like various Hitman 2 seasonal events and Elusive Targets, and that's been me, I guess.

Current Backlog:

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Photo Mode Playthrough
  • inFAMOUS 2
  • Shenmue I & II (yes, they're back!)
  • Many Random PC Games

Upcoming Purchases:

  • LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
  • Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy
  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown
  • Dishonoured

@Gremio108 You've done well completing all those games from your backlog! We done sir.

@RogerRoger πŸ˜‚ Shenmue 1 and 2. Do you think they will be here this time next year!

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

Old backlog:

  • Yakuza Kiwami 2 – Haven't finished, although I've played halfway through the story now.
  • Resident Evil 7 – Haven't even played through a decent chunk, won't be playing it anytime soon anymore
  • Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment – Same as with RE7

Old most wanted:

  • The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III – Bought and I'm halfway through the game (it's probably going to take 100 hours to finish this game, lol)
  • Death Stranding – Bought and finished
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition – Haven't bought yet, still waiting for a decent price

New backlog (I'm including non-PS4 games as well here):

  • Final Fantasy VI
  • Trails of Cold Steel III

I honestly have a difficult time writing down the games that I want to play since I don't want to play too many at the same time. So I just might return and edit this post or make a new one altogether whenever I'm done with either one or both of the above games and figured out what I want to play next.

New most wanted:

  • Star Ocean: First Departure R

After all the recent purchases, I don't really have that many games that I want to buy anymore.

MightyDemon82

I have 10 days off over Xmas. Hopefully I'll have the platinum in Death Stranding before they roll round, then I'll finish off Tales of Vesperia and Undertale before starting RE2 remake. How many games do you guys have going at any one time?

MightyDemon82

KratosMD

@MightyDemon82 It varies from time to time. Like right now I'm only playing Final Fantasy VI since I have an extremely hard time getting into FF games and I want to make it as easy as possible for me to finish this game. In other words, I don't want other games to distract me because if I stop playing an FF game then it'll be months or years before I get back into it, lol. The games are good don't get me wrong, but I still haven't found an FF game that has "clicked" with me yet (I'm playing them in order) and made me realise the greatness of this series.

Other times I could be playing a game on the Switch (since it's portable) and another game on PS4, like I've done this past month with PokΓ©mon Shield and Death Stranding.

So maybe one to three games at a time. Any more than that and I start forgetting to play the other games.

@JohnnyShoulder Thanks! In the last couple of years I've got better at staying focused on the games I want to play. I'm not sure how, it's just happened. Also as I've got older I've got better at just discarding a game if it's not doing it for me. I used to really get bothered by dropping a game halfway through, but it's got much easier recently for some reason.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 snap. I know exactly what you mean. I also think as games have become a huge time commitment, you need to play something you are enjoying.

For instance I remember playing 3 hours of Dragon Age Inquisition and afterwards thought, nope not for me. Similar with Bloodborne after a few times losing my gear. It wasn't ticking any boxes and I was lacking motivation to proceed, doing the dishes felt more appealing.
