The UPN Backlog Thread



"Have you finished those games?"

I have a backlog, you have a backlog. Don't lie to me, UPN, I know you've got games you been meaning to play but have put off since you bought them from that one sale two summers ago. Don't deny it!

Here, we encourage each other to play those games we've been meaning to play and slowly clear that backlog we've accumulated over time. Show us your list, and come back and cross one off when you've completed it, or add one to the list when you get a new game, simple as that. Yes, this serves a different purpose from the Pickups and Plays thread, so don't ask!

Personally, I'm still sitting on games I bought from the last Steam sale, and I'm sitting on several I had gifted to me, too. Not cool! It's not like I want to sit on them or anything... b-baka... I just never get around to it.

So, to start us off, here's my list. Highlighted are priority games... I'm not proud of it.


Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
Assassin's Creed Revelations
Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Alan Wake
Puzzle Agent
Puzzle Agent 2
Quantum Conundrum
Dustforce
Darksiders
Amnesia: The Dark Descent
Splinter Cell: Conviction
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Bard's Tale
Sword and Sworcery
The Binding of Isaac
Bulletstorm
Cave Story+
Dear Esther
Dragon Age: Origins
Duke Nukem Forever
Dungeons of Dredmor
Fallout: New Vegas + all DLC
Far Cry 2
Half-Life 2 + E1
Halo 4
Homefront
Psychonauts
Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale
Saint's Row: The Third
Star Wars: KOTOR
Vanquish


Alright, UPN, let's see the damage.

Is this a backlog only of games we own, or games we own AND intend to play in the future but haven't gotten around to?

I don't understand how those two things are mutually exclusive.

I think the idea of backlog implies that you intend to play them though.

I'll make a list when I can actually figure out what games I own. :x

Sorry, the second part of that is supposed to be "games we don't own but intend to play in the future."

Wow I'm tired.

Oh well in that case I think the idea of backlog implies that you own them and you feel like since you bought them you should play them. At least that's generally the idea of these kinds of threads.

But I'm sure no one would object if you put a game on that you haven't gotten yet but intend to play at some point.

There are a few more games untouched in my Steam Library (that are generally encompassed in the "smattering of indie games" phrase) that I didn't explicitly mention because they're not ones I would want to play immediately.

Ah ok. There are some games like FF7 that I intend to play (and would therefore consider to be on my backlog) but have not acquired yet. I will post my list soon with only games I own though.

Off the top of my head. I'll have a dig around in my games collection (which along with my 360 is about a half an hours walk away at a friends flat with his awesome tv) later. A few of these I've nominally completed before but only with my brother, and would quite like to do them entirely myself.

Can this include games we've played but never finished even though we intended to?

Because I've only ever finished one of the eight Zelda games I own ;;

Tales of the Abyss
Tales of Vesperia
Persona 3
Chrono Cross
Several Super Robot Wars titles (which admittedly I don't have much intention on playing)
Dragon Quest 8
Dragon Quest 9
Metroid Prime 3
Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn
Shadow of the Colossus
Metal Gear Solid 2
Resident Evil 6 (which I'm more likely to return than play)
Recettear
Fotrune Summoners
Half-Life
Half-Life 2
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic
Ys Origin
Ys: The Oath of Felghana
Okamiden

There's also 3DS stuff, but I haven't bought any of it yet. I have the money, but when I go to actually buy a 3DS and the games, I think to myself "I might need this money later on. I'll wait until I have more so this won't put such a large dent in my wallet." I get more, think the same thing. This process will probably continue until I find one for like, $100 or something.

I second this notion. Bastion remains for me one of the best games I have ever played, hands down.

Heh, we should vote on what other members should play first in their backlogs :P

Really? I got bored after the first twenty minutes or so and put it down. Hence why it's not in my backlog even though I own it.

It starts a bit slow but starts picking up. Probably the best ending I've seen and may ever see. I don't foresee any game ending topping Bastion's.

What Tdos said. Bastion has a slow start but when the story more or leas becomes clear, coupled with that brilliantly amazing narrator and 100% drawn and painted level design and acoustic frontier triphop music... it's an experience.

MGS HD Collection...frankly, MGS2 doesn't feel like much, admittedly, I barely started, but still...this doesn't feel like anything special.
