The Dreaded Backlog

Post by juanvasquez » Sun Feb 19, 2017 9:33 am

If like me, you tend to pick up more games than you've got time to play, you've likely got a few in your collection that have been barely touched.

I got Final Fantasy Type 0 for my birthday last year. Played a little bit just to see what it's like and haven't picked it up since. Not a reflection on its quality, but I've just had other stuff since. The same with Evil Within. One of the first games I bought for my PS4 and I've only done a few levels.

I always find I have to be in the right mood for rpg and horror games. And even then it's something else that comes along!

To a lesser extent, I got Lego Dimensions for Xmas, but I've played it only a couple of times, despite really enjoying it.

Anyone else got some great games they've had gathering dust for ages?

I'm a bugger for a) buying games in sale and then never playing them (I will, but just lack of time to do so) and b) starting a game and then starting a dozen others at same time

My current downloaded games on my system which I've started but not completed are:
Bioshock
Broforce
Skyrim
Dead Rising 3
Mad Max
Outlast
Tomb Raider

and I'm currently stuck into FFX

Again, same as you, not a reflection on their quality but instead it just depends what mood I'm in

I think I played about half of Broforce before I had my fill. Once the puns and references wore thin, it didn't feel like it had a lot going for it.
