Sony may be days away from ushering in a new generation, but the PlayStation 3 is not going to disappear overnight. The platform holder revealed that its existing system surpassed 80 million sales globally this week, and we’re sure that it intends to add at least another 20 million units to that tally before it pulls the plug on the platform for good. But while the manufacturer moves to make the machine more attractive to a more mainstream audience, is there anything in particular that you’re still itching to play on the ageing device?

It’s been an incredible year for the soon to be former flagship format. With publishers working hard to deploy the last of their current generation wares, the past eleven months have played host to amazing third-party titles such as Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite, and Grand Theft Auto V. Even more impressively, the platform holder has shown no signs of slowing down its first-party production pipeline, with The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, and Puppeteer all launching within an outstanding six month spell.

And it’s not entirely over. While there’s no doubt that outfits such as Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica are now turning their attention to the next generation, Polyphony Digital is still set to park the enormous Gran Turismo 6 on the current-gen console next month. Furthermore, the list of third-party hits stretches into next year, with Dark Souls 2, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and the surprisingly slick looking Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII all on the way.

Still, it’s the bulging back catalogue that’s destined to keep this particular author occupied throughout the coming holiday window. Killzone: Shadow Fall may be beckoning with maniacal orange eyes, but it’s unopened copies of everything from Far Cry 3 right through to Hitman: Absolution that sit atop this editor’s pile of shame. We’re sure that you have a similar stack of sealed content to go through – be it of the physical kind, or of the backlog boosting, bandwidth busting PlayStation Plus nature.

The big question is: what are you desperate to get through before you unplug your current generation console for the last time?
