Thought this be a fun thread.

So how's you backlog looking? What games do you still have or want to finish before Next Gen finally hits? Are you making the jump right away, or going to try to widdle down the pile?

Me? I have some trophy OCD, and I tend to like to 100% my save files so I typically spend a little longer on most games. That said I try to weed out the stinkers and only play the things I know I'll mostly enjoy. I do need to finish up BF3 (Coop+SP) eventually. My trophy OCD wants to try for GTAIV, even though it's not on the top of my list. Still need to plat MGS2 (almost there) and MGS4. Same with GT5 (need to look for a cheap wheel).

Otherwise my current backlog on the coffee table:
  • Batman AA
  • Batman AC
  • inFamous 2
  • inFamous Blood
  • Deadspace 2
  • Deadspace 3
  • Ico/SotC Collection
  • Flower/Journey Collection
  • Uncharted 3
  • Silent Hill Downpour
  • Silent Hill Collection (2 games)
  • Doom 3 BFG ed
  • Price of Persia Collection (3 games)
  • Chronicles of Riddick DA (2 games)
  • God of War Origins Collection (2 games)
  • MGS3
  • MGS: PW


I'd also like to grab Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Lollypop Chainsaw, Bayonetta, Bioshock 2, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, God of War: Ascension, Max Payne 3, Remember Me, & Zone of the Enders HD Collection at some point. There's even a few more I'm on the fence about.

No way I'll finish up before PS4 is out, so it looks like the PS3 will have space on my entertainment center for a good while... One things for sure, this last gen seem to me to be a golden age of gaming. It is mind blowing how many good to great games have been released, and how cheap you can now grab 80% of them for. I'm excited about what next Gen has to offer, and its looking even stronger; but there's still so much to experience this gen.

Mine is easy, I dont play a lot of games.

I have all the PS+ freebies but will probably never touch them.

I want to play Beyond 2 Souls. I was hyp for Dark Souls 2 until they announced a spring 2014 date. Now, unless they release for PS4 I will likely not get to it.
I kinda want to play through FFXIII-2 as well.

I presume you know that MGS4's platinum will require eight playthroughs, right?

Currently a 360 player. Too huge to list here, probably about 100+ games. That's why I'm keeping my 360 and getting a PS4.

I want to do another run of Mass Effect (Renegade Femshep this time), I still need to do a Milla playthrough of Xillia, and I need to wrap up Tomb Raider... Other than that I am content with my backlog.

Man, I don't like thinking about this stuff.... Makes me depressed


Sometimes I wonder, should I even get any of these next-gen systems. I have both on preorder right now. Still, I'm wondering if it's worth the bother to spend $900 plus tax plus new games, plus accessories when I've got a backlog that is overflowing like a plugged up toilet. I've got so many games on the backburner, that I don't even want to bother listing them.

Cost is the whole reason I am only getting a PS4 at launch. If it wasn't for the Plus freebies I would have probably waited until Infamous hit to jump in. With Xbox One, Titanfall is my only must play, and it seems to be a timed exclusive, so it is hard to justify $500 for getting one game early, even if it is from the respawned ashes of one of my favorite developers... Still, I'll probably get one by next Christmas, I usually buy every system in the first year, with the Vita being my first exception since I started buying my own consoles. Tis an expensive time to be a gamer.

I have over 30 games both in physical discs and + downloads in my backlog. I'm shooting to finish up TLoU for the plat then play and plat Tales of Xillia. After that, I may have to finish up and plat Bioshock Infinite, maybe play Hitman Absolution, but I've been giving a lot of my backlog to my nephew (my sons are too young for video games). I may just take a break after Xillia and finally watch Breaking Bad instead.

I feel like I'm getting senioritis of consoles. I don't really feel like starting anything else on the PS3. I'm ready for the PS4. I just checked and I've played 206 games on the PS3 (at least those that had trophies...since that's how I counted). I'm ready for this next generation and think that it's going to be amazing. Sony learned a lot from last generation in their competition with Microsoft. It seems like they've done everything right for this console and release. They've listened to what their customers want and it shows. Color me excited.

PS3 Games I "own":

Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal (from the HD collection)
Sorcery
Hitman Absolution (Plus)
XCOM: Enemy Unknown (Plus)
Borderlands 2 (DLC, but waiting for GOTY release)
Batman Arkham City (finish New Game+)
Mass Effect 2/3 (finish playthroughs with imported ME1 shep and with all ME3 DLC installed)


PS3 Games I haven't bought yet (highest priorities)

Dishonored
The Last of Us
Bioshock Infinite
Tomb Raider
Sly Cooper Theives in Time
Heavy Rain
Beyond Two Souls


My backlog list is further impacted by my recent purchase of a Vita, which will take me away from playing games on my PS3

Vita Backlog:

Uncharted Golden Abyss (Plus)
Dokuro (Plus)
Rayman Origins (free on Plus next month)
Wipeout 2048 (Plus)
Gravity Rush (Plus)
The Walking Dead (own)
Assassins Creed Liberation (haven't bought yet, but high priority)
Soul Sacrifice
Dragon's Crown

The above lists do not include a number of other PSN titles I would play if they were offered free for Plus or at an extreme discount.

And with that, I don't really see myself jumping into a PS4, unless enough games come out that become higher priorities than any or all of the above (so far I'm not seeing it).

I may have to add Jak 2 and 3 to my backlog, never finished 2 due to a badly designed mission and never touched 3.

I also need to finish Going Commando, I had the same problem with it. I did finish Up Your Arsenal, which is still my favorite Ratchet game, maybe a replay is in order...

A bit late to the thread, but right now I got:

Killzone 3 *
Resistance 3 *
God of War 3 *
God of War Origin Collection *
Devil May Cry HD collection * (s)
Metal Gear Solid HD collection * (s)
Doom 3 BFG edition * (s)
ICO/Shadow of the Colussus HD collection * (s)
Infamous *
Demon Souls *
Motorstorm Apocalypse **
Time Crisis Razor Storm *
Heavy Rain *
Resident Evil Darkside/Umbrella Chronicles (Ps+) *
Battlefield 3(Ps+) **
Little Big Planet 2( PS+) *


That's just on the Ps3 side(off the top of my head). On 360 I got:

Goldeneye Reloaded **
Red Dead Redemption * (s)
Tomb Raider(2013) * (s)
Dragon's Dogma * (s)
Halo Wars **

Wii:

Xenoblade chronicles *
Metroid Prime 3 **
Super Mario Galaxy **
Donkey Kong Country returns *

3ds:

Fire Emblem Awakening * (s)
Resident Evil Revelations *
Devil Survivor Overclocked * (s)
Ghost Recon Shadow Wars * (s)

Vita:


Wipeout 2048 ( Ps +) **
Gravity Rush (Ps+) **
A bunch of indie titles through PS+( Germinator, Zen Pinball,etc) **

* Never played
** Barely played
(s) Sealed new


There are also several other titles I want like Last of Us, Mass Effect Trilogy, Injustice, God of War Ascension, Rayman Origins( I'll get Legends on Wii U whenever I get that console) Skyrim and Fallout 3( I'll probably get those when I build my gaming PC), and others that don't immediately spring to mind. Simply put, this gen has ALOT of life left to it for me, with games to last well into next gen. Sheesh, when I look at that list of heavy-hitters, I'm trying to recall exactly what the hell I've been playing the past 5 years??!

Too many systems and games....not enough time or money!

CoD4 is the only one worth playing. MW2/3 maybe if you want to see how that story ends, but I think I prefer the cliffhanger...

It was a joke. I have no intention of play the sp for those. Too much shoot the stupid AI cutscene shoot more stupid AI. It is unreal that very little progress has been made to make AI play like real players. Pretty sure in BLOPS2 it is a simple time delay between entering line of sight and time till they shoot at you. Ratchet up the difficulty and the time delay decreases. rolleyes.gif

I do remember enjoying COD4 sp. But that was also the first game I bought for PS3.

From the beginning of August to yesterday here is my backlog progress:

3D DGH
Batman Arkham City
The Darkness 2
Doom 3 BFG
HOTD Overkill
Ico/SotC Collection
Far Cry 3
Hitman Absolution
Max Payne 3
Tomb Raider


To be fair FC3 story was almost done when August started, and there's more to mess with for sure. When GTA V wears off I'll be going back.

Darkness 2 is underrated and it's too bad more people haven't experienced this wonderful game.

Max Payne is a roller coaster ride that was pretty fun. It's a sequel in name only, being the type of game that wants you to play by it's rules or be punished.

Just finished Hitman Absolution. There's times you feel like the Assassin King, while there's other times you're wondering who built this rickety show. Worth seeing through but you'll be frustrated at times.

Hitman and Max Payne will be traded for a GT6 preorder this Monday, while Darkness 2 and FC3 stay in the permanent collection. The rest are going to be backlog fixtures in 11 days but I do vow to play them eventually.

So, how's everyone else doin'?

Terrible due to work getting crazy and real life.

I did end up getting my platinum for GTAIV finally. 4 1/2 years from the first trophy ding.

Unfortunately, I have way too many to list. Right from the beginning of next gen, I will have have an insurmountable backlog just from the launch titles. And, yes, both systems are on order.

I did recently finish BF3 knowing that I'd have BF4 on the way in weeks. Am going to work on KZ3 next. Don't know where I am but I think I'm closer to the end than the beginning...at least I hope so.

There are too many choices to know what I should play next. So lately, I've been letting the new releases guide me. If I have any of the previous titles and they're unfinished, they move to the top of the queue so I can get the next installment.

I still have a bit of a backlog from Playstation 2 days...although to be honest I doubt I will ever go back to those games...I did finish Xenosaga 3 a couple of years ago and will probably play Tales of the Abyss (those PS2 games look really good in emulation on a modern PC), that's about it.
