I am overwhelmed with games, I just can't keep up with the pace. I have so many unfinished.

I have about 60 hours in Dragon Age Inquisition. I've been told around 2/3's of the way complete.

Dying Light has been sucking up my time lately.

Apotheon is something I just started and is fun so far.

DriveClub - always in the mix, such an amazing game.

Far Cry 4 - haven't touched in a few weeks due to the other games

Lords of Fallen - same

I'm sure I'm missing something as well. I bought a few smaller games that were on sale like Last Swan and some others.

---
The Order is looking like a purchase
Blooborne is a guaranteed purchase after playing the beta
Dark Souls 2 PS4 version

Mainly NHL 15, so hooked on building up my Ultimate Team.

Have Last of Us Remastered and Far Cry 4 unopened. Can't decide which one to play first. I know I am going to like both A LOT. Just want to make sure I can dedicate some time before beginning.

Also picked up Need for Speed Rivals and EA Sports UFC for cheap off psn store sale.

I just got a PS4 in mid-December and immediately delved into two of the free games that came with my bundle: Far Cry 4 (50% complete) and LittleBigPlanet 3 (completed story campaign and Pop-up Academy). I also played the free Plus game Contrast and bought and completed The Walking Dead season 2. I'm now wrapping up my third 100% completion of Flower, which looks a plays amazing on the PS4 (I previously played it on PS3 and Vita).

Not to neglect my PS3 backlog completely, I've also put some time into Madden 15, Borderlands 2 DLC, Dishonored DLC, and this week I started the one LEGO game to rule them all Lord of the Rings.

Next up are Skyrim Legendary Edition, which I purchased the week before I decided to jump on a PS4 bundle, and some obscure little game that came with my PS4 bundle, The Last of Us Remastered. I know it may seem odd to start LEGO LOTR ahead of Skyrim and TLOUR, but I'm afraid the longer I wait on these backlog titles, the less chance there is that I will ever get around to playing them. By contrast, there's no way I'm NOT playing Skyrim and TLOUR, even if it doesn't happen for another six months.

Looking at the above, I seem to have completely abandoned my Vita, which I haven't fired up since the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to play Escape Plan.

Recently completed:

Infamous: Second Son -- a great-looking game, and the different powers were cool, but I wish there had been a bigger difference between the good and evil storylines.
Fez -- got this as a PS+ freebie, and tried it on my Vita just to see what all the fuss was about. Cute, but not my cup of tea. Also, the puzzles are incredibly obscure; I can't imagine how people completed this game without a walkthrough.
Transistor -- a really interesting combat system. The only thing that stopped me from getting the platinum was the series of Performance test challenges.

Currently playing:

Wolfenstein: The New Order -- I didn't pay much attention to this when it first came out, but after its appearance in many "Best of the Year" lists, I gave it a try, and am enjoying it immensely.

I bought a month of the subscription for Playstation Now, so I too am overwhelmed with games.


I just halted my subscription to FF14. Will go back to that in a few months. Plaything through Prototype 2 on the PS3. Playing through The Last of Us. Haven't even started Infamous First Light, free from PS+. Thinking about starting a game of Dragon Age: Inquisition soon. And going to plop down some money to preorder Final Fantasy Type-0 to make sure I get that FFXV demo next month.


Too much good stuff. With Playstation Now, I'm good on games for a while. And they've already updated it and added new games and I haven't even had it a month yet...

Stand tall and shake the heavens...

So, I finished Far Cry 4 a few days ago and really enjoyed it. Very much like FC3 but also much improved. I plan on running it again pretty soon for story bits and collectables

I picked up Lords of the Fallen again after a couple month hiatus. Ended up getting to the last boss and he's proving problematic. Really want to get this done before Blooborne on 3/24.

And of course Driveclub. Making and trying to beat challenges is more addicting than I thought. Even after Smigro or Nexus comes along and wrecks my lap time.

Finished Far Cry 4 and now just starting Dragon Age: Inquisition. That should last several months with how much gametime I get in an average week, ha!

Like others, I'm overwhelmed by the sheer amount of games there are to play. High class problems right?

Far Cry 4 is getting most of my love right now. I like to play The Golf Club from time to time too. If I only have time for a quick play session, Star Wars Angry Birds is my go to. It's just so addictive that I hate to stop playing once I start.

June '15 update:

Heh, the last time I posted in February, I was excited about three free PS+ games. I ended up only sticking with Rogue Legacy to the end. It was one of the best freebies we've had so far. As of now, I'm putting my time into these games right now.

DriveClub
I've been stuck on one track for awhile and have been too stubborn to leave it for later. I need to continue to refine my approach.

Shadow of the Colossus HD
One of my favorite PS2 games is just as enjoyable on the PS3. I had been meaning to tackle this backlogged title for awhile and finally started it after completing Bloodborne.

Tekken Revolution
I'm sure I'll continue to play this online fighter until Tekken 7 releases.

Just about every night for me, it's either:

- Witcher 3
- Project Cars
- The Golf Club
- MLB 15 The Show

Good times, I look forward to it every night.

On the Vita I'm playing Killzone Mercenary, which has become my favorite of the Killzone games because of the different ways to complete each mission.

On the PS3 I'm playing Payday 2 co-op with some friends.

On the PS4 I'm playing Alien: Isolation. The sections with the alien are terrifically atmospheric; the sections with the crazy humans or malfunctioning androids are just kind of irritating.

Platted Bloodborne, finished The Unfinished Swan, maxed out my level on Race The Sun.

Now I'm back to Metro Redux and Alien: Isolation.

My PS3 is officially collecting dust now. Might go back and finish the second half of Nier sometime...

Still working on Alien: Isolation off and on. I think I'm about halfway through now. Sometimes it's tense and great, and other times it's a bit tedious.

Started on Metro Redux, but I think I'm having first-person overload, so I'm setting it aside for a bit.

I hit up some cheap and free stuff on PSN. Entwined was sort of interesting, but ultimately pretty thin. Steamworld Dig was pretty addictive while it lasted. Geometry Wars 3 is great -- like an abstract Super Stardust HD with a lot more variety. I also just started on Bastion, which is OK so far.

I'll wait for the GOTY version of Batman: Arkham Knight.

On the Vita I've finally begun Persona 4 Golden, which I bought years ago. It's almost absurdly complicated, but I think I'm starting to understand why people rave about it.

On the PS3 I'm playing Fuse co-op with friends.

On the PS4 I'm playing The Order: 1886. Gameplay-wise it's pretty conventional, but in terms of visuals I think it pushes the boundaries of what we've seen in a console game.

July '15 update:.

DriveClub
Don't laugh, but the reason I was stuck on progressing past one track for the last six weeks is because motion controls aren't any good compared to the analog stick when trying to get good times (no autocenter is the main issue). I'm suprised I made as much progress as I did steeering the cars that way all this time.

Batman
10% or so in and as a huge fan of the first two, I'm not feeling it yet. I actually like the car as a major new feature, but the graphics are really underwhelming. Usually I don't mind that too much, but I guess I expected more polish and pizazz.

Tekken Revolution
Tekken 7 showed up at a local arcade as a beta test, so I've put TR on hold until they remove it.

Still on Batman. I finished the main story line, but I'm now focusing on the other missions. With a wife and kid I don't have a lot of time to play it, but I'm enjoying it and hope I can complete it (minus all Riddler trophies) in the next week or two.

And on XBO I finally picked up Halo MCC. Never played before, so it's taking some getting used to. Not sure if I'll finish it or not, but it'll be a nice one to mess around with until Battlefront arrives. Still not sure which system I'll be getting that game on.

I've been wanting to get into Rocket League based on all the comments in other threads, but I just haven't found the time.

Recent non-VR stuff:

Grow Up: Nice sequel to Grow Home, worth the $8 I paid for it, though I 100%-ed it within a few days. This game uses the entire planet and sky above, with multiple starplants and new goals. The only bummer was that the increased access to horizontal travel made it so as soon as you could teleport to one high area, you could glide to most of the other high areas around the planet without having to earn your way up to them.

Virginia: Picked this up for $4.50, played through the whole thing in one sitting. Interesting, ambiguous narrative told without any speech at all, and minimal text. Visual style evocative of 1990s 3D games. Not much replay value as there's not much gameplay to speak of, but the experience was interesting and worthwhile.

Crypt Of The NecroDancer: Picked this up for $5. Fun mash-up of roguelike and rhythm game that I talked about in more detail in another thread.

Mad Max: Got this for $8. Lots to do. Combat is Batman-lite, driving is generally good, though it's all been on sand so far, so it's a bit sloppy. An overwhelming number of upgrades to choose from, and the map is huge. Might get tedious with time, but it's been fun so far.

Inside: Picked it up on sale for $10 and played through in one sitting. Similar in tone to the developer's previous game, Limbo, but offers nice 3D backdrops although the gameplay remains 2D. Mild environmental puzzling mixed with platforming and a unique ambience. Takes a strong left turn at the end. Not a ton of replay value, other than tracking down some hidden items for trophies. Worth $10, but I wouldn't pay more than that.

Picked up The Talos Principle for $7.50 but haven't started it yet. Still working on Mad Max and Darkest Dungeon. Got Final Fantasy XV for Christmas but also haven't started it yet.

Nice to see this thread revived.

Solo I'm playing The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt; I picked up the Complete Edition on sale for $25 recently, and I just finished the Bloody Baron's quest. The game seemed pretty stingy with XP at the beginning, but it's getting easier now.

Co-op I'm playing Dying Light: The Following Extended Edition with friends. We finished the main campaign, and just started The Following, so now we're driving over zombies with buggies.

I'm about to leave on a trip, and on the Vita I'll be playing Kick and Fennick, one of the PS+ freebies. A fun little platformer.

Just getting started with PSVR. I recently finished Bound, which looks incredible in VR; I wish the story were better, though. Up next is Here They Lie.

Also, I just finished Inside, another puzzle-platformer-horror game from the studio that made Limbo. Better than Limbo, with a much weirder ending. It's on sale for $10 on the PSN store for one more day.

Oh yeah, I also played through Walking Dead: Michonne for $5. Not bad, but not particularly memorable either. More of the same, without as much emotional resonance as the main seasons of the game. Worth $5 for fans of the series, but not much more. Not sure if I'll play through it a second time or not for different choices.
