    I decided it's time to work on my backlog! Past couple of days, I've picked up Half-Life 2 (Orange Box, PS3) again! My last save file was dated March 2008!! :eek:

    Great fun, even if the graphics seem a bit dated today.

    Also planning to finish Silent Hill Homecoming next - probably haven't touched that for two years or so.

    What's your unfinished business? Any intentions on taking care of that? You slackers?? ;)

    There's no way in hell I'm doing the PC version of this. I've got 200+ games on Steam and I only play 5-6 of them :D. These are games I've bought and only managed to put 0-30 minutes into so far, or in the case of RPGs; ones I've yet to reach the end of.

    Final Fantasy 4 Heroes of Light
    Advance Wars Dark Conflict+Dual Strike
    Pokemon White, Platinum, Heart Gold (to 100%)
    Final Fantasy Tactics A2, FFIV, FFIII
    Geometry Wars Galaxies
    Chinatown Wars
    Infinite Space
    Kirby Superstar
    Tony Hawk's American Skateland

    Tactics Ogre
    Everybody's Golf 2
    Metal Slug Anthology
    Castlevania X Chronicles
    Tomb Raider Anniversary+Legend (did just buy+finish them on Steam though)
    Gran Tourismo
    Burnout Dominator
    I'd like to 100% PeaceWalker
    GTA Vice+Liberty City Stories
    Chinatown Wars
    Tony Hawk's Underground Remix 2
    Ys Seven
    Ys: Ark of Naphistim
    Monster Hunter Freedom Unite+the first one
    Tales of Eternia
    Star Ocean 1+2
    Dissidia, FF Tactics, got Dissidia 012 on preorder
    Jeanne D'Arc
    Disgaea 1
    ZHP Unlosing Warrior

    PSP Downloads
    Vagrant Story

    FF13 (I like it, it's just more difficult to commit to console games when you travel a bit)

    +GBA games I haven't finished

    Monkey Island 1+2
    The Deep
    Broken Sword
    Zenonia 1+2
    Song Summoner
    Across Age DX
    Crimson Gem Saga (almost bought the PSP one for £19!)
    Shining Force

    I tend to buy games whilst they're cheap or about to go out of print so I don't have to faff around later.
    Edit: Uh oh that's a lot I need to play!

    Oh god don't get me started..

    I listed a few iOS games on a thread the other day that are installed on my iPad. 123 of them someone counted! Scary thing is ive added 3 more since then.

    Guess how many I've finished! Err non. I think the real game is collecting them like pokemon and have them fight for space on me iPad screen lol.

    I have a bunch more as well, but these are the two somewhat older ones that I have picked out for now to actually play again.

    SH: Homecoming was inspired by the fact that Downpour was announced and looks interesting to me. Then I thought, "damn, I can't go buy that if I didn't even finish the last one".

    And the Orange Box was inspired by the fact that Portal 2 is around the corner. I'm really enjoying HL2 - glad, I picked it back up!!

    Also, I want to buy ME2 and LBP2...but I won't until I finish a few games I already own! So much fun gaming I spent money on and that I haven't enjoyed yet sitting on my shelf! Red Dead Redemption - supposedly one of the best games last year, bought it at launch, and played for maybe two hours so far. Shame, shame...

    "No escape from Reality..."
    Missile Command

    (is this "Backlog" - or so old it's "Retro"? :eek:) ;)

    Ha, ha...

    Just picked up Halo Reach statue pack for $60 at GameStop, so I guess that's "Backlog" - bought it for the statue, though... :D

    Rocketing through the sky!
    I have so many it hurts my brain...

    And the really bad thing is I just want to replay OLD games I have already beaten or grind in some RPG's I will never finish.

    It's not just a backlog for me... overlap too. Can't decide if I want to play through Final Fantasy I+II and Chinatown Wars on my PSP or iPhone... glad I don't have a DS at the moment to stack the backlog and version decisions even higher.

    Goal: Most games, fewest consoles... narrow my attention span to actually complete a game and get hooked.

    Finally finished Half-Life 2!!! Still need to play the episodes though....but I'm gonna take a break from the series for a little while.

    In the meantime, I went and bought LBP2 and ME2....yeah, so much for backlogging! :eek:

    No no no, you go back and finish those Episodes!
    They're not that long. I think I beat Ep 1 at 6 hours and Ep 2 at 7 hours. I played them both over the course of a weekend recently. Really is a great experience.

    With my current schedule, this translates into roughly 3 months and 4 months, respectively. :)
