Welcome to Coffee Talk! Let’s start off the day by discussing whatever is on your (nerd chic) mind. Every morning I’ll kick off a discussion and I’m counting on you to participate in it. If you’re not feelin’ my topic, feel free to start a chat with your fellow readers and see where it takes you. Whether you’re talking about videogames, the rumors of Brett Favre un-retiring (again), your thoughts on the U.S. debt ceiling, or Rey Mysterio being WWE Champion for 12 seconds, Coffee Talk is the place to do it.
It’s audience participation time (not really sure how this is different from any other day on the site)!!! Today I’d like you to jot down all the games in your gaming backlog. This little exercise is as much for me as it is for you. There are always games that I mean to play but put off due to life, love, work, etc. Hopefully writing them down will motivate me to finish them. I’m hoping that writing your backlog in the comments section will do the same for you too. Here’s my list.
- Blue Dragon — It’s laughable that I haven’t played more of this game. I frickin’ love job systems!
- Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom — This game wowed me at E3 2010 and I still haven’t finished it yet.
- Enslaved: Odyssey to the West — Some of my friends love this game and some hate it. I need to see what the deal is. The little I’ve played seems really cool.
- Pokemon Black — After playing almost 700 hours of Pokemon Pearl, my game clock in Black is still in double digits. I can no longer call myself a Pokemon Master. *sniff*
- Final Fantasy XIII — I have a wee bit more to play. I’ve watched friends beat it, but I kind of want to do it on my own. It’s been so long that I’ll probably load a save file from a few chapters back just to get in the groove.
Of course new titles like Bastion and the Dragon Age II Legacy DLC will get in the way, but I’m determined to make it through this list before the year ends.
Now it’s your turn! What’s in your gaming backlog?
