My Extensive Video Game Backlog (Update #1)

With the summer more than halfway over, I think it is time to re-assess my video game backlog. Honestly, I feel like I crossed off a lot of games on my list, but the list hasn’t gotten that much smaller to reflect that. The games that are crossed out on the list below are games that I have completed and effectively cleared from my backlog… Except Dark Souls. I can’t play that game anymore… No further comment on that game. Surprisingly, not many games were added to the list, besides Octodad, and I’ve been moving at a steady pace in an attempt to clear my backlog. I started with shorter games like Child of Light, Modern Warfare and Velocity Ultra, but I got caught up in the long run times of Red Dead Redemption and Persona 4 Golden. It was worth it though, and I can now move on to something else. But what though? Do I continue my Metal Gear run through, even though I didn’t enjoy the first one? Maybe I should continue my Wind Waker or Chrono Trigger adventures. I think I’ll end up playing it safe and play a game I know I’ll enjoy again, such as Tales of Xillia, XCOM or The Last of Us. Regardless, after creating it three months ago, check out how my backlog of video games is looking.
