Old Games and Backlog thread

Hey SE!

Get up off your butt and play through that stack of games you shoved behind those science journals so no one would see them! You're not fooling anybody! We saw what you bought in the steam sale and literally never installed!

Or play that old classic you go back to every few years! Hasn't it been too long? Don't you miss your old favorite characters?

Or hell, maybe its time to go back and play a classic you've never played before!

Talk about your backlog of secret shame, your old favorites, or some stuff you've always meant to play but never got around to!

    For me I'm slowly replaying Shining Force 2 and Final Fantasy 9

    I have too many steam games to list but in particular need to get around to La Mulana, VVVVV, and Bro Force

    And I have 100 dollars in Lufia SNES games that I've literally never touched sitting on my shelf

    I'm paralyzed and don't even know where to start!

    I knocked out a world in Super Mario 3D World last night. That is my current quarry.

    I will need...some time to compile a full catalog of shamefully unplayed games.

    I've found that trying to focus on all of them at once is completely useless

    Don't bother

    Pick 3 that you really want to hit and try to knock them out one at a time

    I just restarted Bioshock

    I have played this game a truly embarrassing number of times

    But this time

    This time I'm just going to wrench everyone to death.

    I would tell people were all the cool hidden people were and who to take and ditch
    but then they said my force was really tricky to play with since it was a well oiled machine A assists B assists C and on down
    It was not for everyone it seems

    It makes me sad that Infinite was so bad.

    Bioshock 1 was so great, and I think Bioshock 2 was fun even if the story was bad.

    I on the other hand liked infinite far more than either of the previous games

    Opinions!

    They don't make you immune to muddle, I tested that

    They do give casters a glitch spell called HIGINS that doesn't do anything though

    I think I still want a list to track some sort of overall progress (and to impress upon myself how much I should not buy new games).

    But you're right. I'm focusing on SM3DW for now, and will probably tackle Alan Wake next. Not gonna try to prioritize beyond that just yet.

    My favorite weird thing in that game is that the giant statue TAROS who guards the caravan can drop his sword when you kill him, but only very rarely

    It's a really good sword

    And noone can equip it.

    I have no idea why its in the game.

    I have assassin's creed 1,2, brotherhood, revelations, and 3 for my ps3, and not a single one of them have actually made it into the ps3.

    I need to get through them sometime.

    How did you end up with all of them if you never played any of them?

    I mean, I kept buying them and not finishing them because I don't like them, but that's because I'm an idiot

    Is Dragon's Dogma an old game?

    It's older than a year, so I'm saying yes.

    While waiting for Destiny and Far Cry 4 and in between Diablo sessions, I loaded this back up on the 360 and I swear I'll beat it this time. I dig a whole helluva lot about this game, but godDAMN, I wish my stamina didn't drain so fast. It's tedious to run for short stretches, walk while stamina recovers, and then jog some more to get anyfuckingwhere. THIS is why there are fast travel systems! At least I played OG version so my copy of Dark Arisen let's me used the unlimited ferrystone. Just need more of those crystals to drop over this whole map.

    It was during hte few years where I was addicted to evequest 2 and then world of warcraft.
    They would come out, I would like the concept, and I would buy it with the intention of getting it.
    But then I'd walk in the house and turn on the pc and log on.
    It didn't actually register just how many ps3 games I had bought and barely even opened.

    When it comes to video games, anything that came out more than a month ago is old

    Speaking of which, I really need to finish The Last of Us before I give into my consumer desires and buy Invisible Inc

    (I probably won't do that)

    Here's my backlog...
    Xbox 360:
    Sleeping Dogs

    Xbox One:
    Crimson Dragon - Gold
    Strike Suit Zero -Gold

    Wii U:
    Pikmin 3
    Pushmo World
    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

    3DS:
    Etrian Odyssey 4
    Crimson Shroud
    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner Soul Hackers

    Right now I'm working on Persona 3 mostly, along with some Rogue Legacy and some Tearaway. I'd love to not purchase games until I've cleared all of these, but I'm definitely picking up Destiny in a couple of weeks... So that statement is clearly a lie I just tell myself so I can sleep better at night. :)

    Yeah, same here. I loveddddd the gameplay of it but I found that I really need a strong story there to propel me through to the end.

    I recently got a Wii U so I'm playing through Wind Waker for the first time. It's gooooooooooorgeous. I'm nearing the end of it I think, so I picked up Okami HD too to continue my Zelda funtimes.
