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 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.

@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 ABZÛ 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 😂 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.

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 Pokémon 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.

@Gremio108 @themcnoisy Totally agree.

I'm OK with playing some of a game, even having enjoyed it and moving on if it's not compelling. Mad Max was a good example of that.

@MightyDemon82 I usually have 2-3 in the active rotation. I try to have one them be a larger epic type of game, typically an open world time-sink, as well as one or two shorter experiences or drop-in-and-out games (like a fighter, a platformer, a racing game, or a sports game) to cleanse the palate periodically. Often I’ll have a less intense narrative driven game going on also, like a walking sim, visual novel, or Telltale / Quantic Dream style game as well.

Lately I try not to have two complex long rpg type games going at the same time because inevitably one will dominate the other and then confusion ensues about what the heck is going on and which button does what. 😅

Old Lists

Was Playing:

1. Dragon Quest Builders 2 - Done! Dusted! Platinumed!
2. Trails in the Sky SC - At last, this was finished. Yay me.

Backlog of the past:

My illness has thrown something of a spanner in the works and set me back quite a bit with my backlog progress.

1. Red Dead Redemption 2 - Didn't touch it.
2. Hitman 2 - Love Hitman! It's awesome! Was actually in the midst of playing this and got up to Bangkok from the legacy pack. Shall resume.
3. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 - Y'know, aside from the music I think I may just loathe this game. According to my Switch I've put 70 hours into this. Do I continue after this massive time investment? I'll have to see, but I've recently realised that life is too short.
4. Tales of Hearts R - I was playing this and like most Tales games it's as comfy and cosy as a warm woollen glove. Nowhere near finished, of course.

Most Wanted:

  • Doom Eternal - This has been delayed to one of the most crowded gaming seasons ever. Ah well, Bethesda.
  • Pokémon Shield - PURCHASED! Currently playing this.
  • Luigi's Mansion 3 - On my Christmas list
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - On my Christmas list

Sam's Super Awesome New List of Festive Awesomeness!

Currently Playing:

1. Pokémon Shield - Just beat the first gym.

Backlog:

1. Tales of Hearts R - This has temporarily moved back to the backlog while I focus on Pokémon.
2. Hitman 2 - Shall resume this once I'm home.

Most Wanted:

1. Final Fantasy VII Remake

Good. Don't fall for the sunk cost fallacy. You don't get points from God/the universe for finishing games you don't like.
