What games have you been putting on the back-burner that you'd like to finish or even start this year or soon?



My own list (which I'm sure will be updated often):
Mario Galaxy 2 - about halfway through it, but haven't touched it for a year or so
Super Paper Mario - bought this as part of a B2G1 deal and haven't even unwrapped it :(
Bravely Default - it's sitting in my 3DS now...feelin' guilty
All of the Phoenix Wright games - I've played through a few, but haven't finished any of them
Chrono Trigger - just bought this and need to get to it soon

Oh jeez. I start so many games and then just either get bored or get side tracked and forget about them

Jak and Daxter the Precursor legacy
Assassin's Creed 2
Assassin's Creed 3
Final Fantasy 13 Lightning Returns
Shadow Of The Colossus
Hitman Absolution
Dynasty Warriors 6
Star Ocean The Last Hope
Bully
Dawn Of Mana
DIrge of Cerberus FF7
All of the Prince Of Persia games
All of the God Of War games
Final Fantasy 13 - I accidentally deleted my end game file right before I got to the final boss. I doubt I'll be able to sit through all of that again so this might be a lost cause.
Monster Rancher Evo - I don't think I'll ever be able to finish this because I'm color blind and it just really messes with me

And that's just what I've got on the top of my head. I have a massive list of handheld games that I still haven't beaten as well. I'm terrible at finishing things.

I used to have a pretty insane backlog due to just buying games all the time, but I've cut back on it since I try to only play a couple of games at a time now (usually one console, one handheld). I'm currently playing FFX and OoT, so I guess my current backlog would be:

FFX-2
God of War 2
Kingdom Heart 1.5 Remix

And then some things that I bought on Steam that I just haven't gotten to playing yet, like:
FFVIII
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

Not a whole lot these days really. Just:
-finishing my 4th playthrough of FE: Awakening
-finishing Ocarina of Time 3DS

And someday I will beat the Seabed on Ultimate in Phantasy Star Online....

But Alpha Sapphire eats up a lot of time becuz too much breeding. Oh and Skyrim.

Well, I have 49 unfinished games on my Backloggery BUT... the games that I actually want to make sure I tackle and finish up this year are:
  • Pokémon Omega Ruby
  • Tales of the Heroes: Twin Brave
  • Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix HD
  • Persona 4 Golden
  • Final Fantasy X-2 HD
  • Tales of Innocence R
  • Tales of Destiny PS2
  • Danganronpa 2
Most of these I've already started, but others I haven't even taken out of the plastic wrap yet. Some, I'm right at the end but lost steam when I first played because I missed 0.2% completion on a commsphere and now have to play through again if I ever want to get 100% complete and I'm still angry. And others I'll probably have to restart because I cannot remember what was going on in the slightest.

:( It'd be nice if I managed to knock more than these off my list, though.

There are plenty that I'd like to finish, but my main focuses are going to be The Witcher 1+2, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, and basically every Fire Emblem ever.

And I guarantee I will beat just about anything except for those.

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire

I have such terrible impulse control that games which end up on my backlog don't stay there for long.

Mine's pretty small right now, though 2 of the 4 games (Mass Effect 3 and Red Dead Redemption) have been in my backlog for a few years now, and I still haven't gotten around to them, despite always saying that I will. The other two games are Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Spyro the Dragon (PSN download), both of which I'll probably manage to finish well before I start ME3 or RDR, haha.

There are so many unfinished games in my drawer collecting dust, I've lost tracking. If I were to put my finger on one, though, it'd have to be WWE 2K13 for Xbox 360.

I was very excited when I'd first bought this game, but unfortunately, the beginning part of its story-line seemed to have been rather bland, in a way, which caused me to stop playing and move onto something else. I've been planning to give it another shot--this time, a much longer one so that I would be able to experience more of their aspects--but I haven't had much of chance to actually get around.

I've spent around $40 under 2K13, which is a lot, and it likely wouldn't be wise to allow all of that to go to a waste. Aside from this, however, another would be Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Although I did spend a lot of time playing in multi-player, I have yet to complete its campaign mode. I did try, but wound up stopping eventually due to similar reasons as former game.

I'm so bad at finishing what I start. Seriously, I have the attention span of a squirrel.
On Steam I actually have three categories dedicated to achievement progress - which, more or less, goes hand-in-hand with actual story progress. I have a whopping 66 titles in what is essentially made for 1-35% completion. Most of them have, like, one or two achievements and then I just stopped playing.

What I'd like to actually finish within the new few months, though:

3DS:
Spoiler:
Pokemon Omega Ruby - I bought it on release day, and I just got my 7th badge two days ago. ;~;

Yoshi's New Island - Got this a week ago, I'm on World 1-3. That's dedication, man.

LoZ: A Link Between Worlds - Purchased shortly after release; have never beaten Ganon.

LoZ: OoT: Master Quest - I started my MQ run in September, 2013. I'm in the water temple. Maybe I should just restart?


PC:
Spoiler:
Shovel Knight - I actually made progress the first night I played it!! ...Haven't picked it up since, though.

The Walking Dead: Season Two - I was so invested in both games when I nabbed them during the winter sale. I freakin' marathoned the first game and beat it over the course of 2 or 3 afternoons. I dunno why I stopped halfway the second, though.

The Evil Within - I feel so terrible that one of my friends gifted this to me at full price only a week after it released, only for me to put 5 hours into it and then put it on my virtual shelf. I'm a shitty friend.

Dishonored - "This is really neat," I thought. Plays for 80 minutes and shelves it.


It's nothing too ambitious. 8 games, at most 17-ish hours to finish any of them, and several months to do so. But I'll probably end up buying something else and playing that instead of these things. I don't think I know how to play games anymore.

I'm doing Phoenix Wright right now! Granted, I played the original three before. But I bought the 3D remaster trilogy on eShop recently and Dual Destinies as well. That left me out of the fourth game which I found new, sealed, and cheap at a local video game shop :D I should be started the second one this week.

They're fun if you put the time in. The last cases are always mind-blowing.


I also quoted Chrono Trigger because that's been on my list forever. As part of my writings on that other forum we're staff on, I'm playing through the history of video games. Pretty damn well near almost everything or so. :P I'll hit Chrono one day

I am maybe 50% through Apollo Justice and Trials and Trib. I haven't started the others (though come to think of it, I might be missing Justice for All). I really do enjoy them, but they just got shuffled to the end of my playlist over time.

I was gonna start Chrono today, but decided to play more Tropical Freeze. :P And you mean that one site where it references the amount of players that can participate in a local multiplayer game on systems like the Nintendo? I am familiar with said site. lololol.

The only game I haven't finished is Omega Ruby. I really should get around to it, but I have six badges and no motivation to play it. I admit it, the games are getting a bit tedious for me.

All of the other games I play are ones that don't really have a story, such as SSB and Hearthstone.

I really want to complete Lords of the Fallen when I get the chance. It's a very fun game - similar to Dark Souls in control layout - but the game is so broken as it crashes a lot in sequences with a lot of AI interaction. Its a real shame - the game had a lot of potential.
