Is it just me, or is life as an adult gamer just really, really shit? The sad truth is that we don’t get time to indulge in our favourite button mashing past-time, usually due to niggling details like jobs, families, children etc… As a result, the backlog is born. Not everyone will have an enormous backlog, as they may have had the sense to stop buying games the moment they knew they wouldn’t have enough time to play them. People like me, however, took a little longer to get the message. Thus I’ve amassed an embarrassingly large backlog over the past few years that I thought would be fun to list out for the first time. This is it so far, but even more are popping to mind as I write this:

  • Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask, Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword (Wii)
  • Final Fantasy 8 and 9 (PSone)
  • Half Life 2: Episode 1 (PC)
  • Shenmue (Dreamcast)
  • Dead Space 2 (PC)
  • Resident Evil Code Veronica (Dreamcast)
  • Resident Evil 3 (Gamecube)
  • Resident Evil 0 (Gamecube)
  • Resident Evil 5 (PS3)
  • Panzer Dragoon Saga (Sega Saturn)
  • Assassins Creed 2, Brotherhood and Revelations (PS3)
  • Mass Effect (PC)
  • Amnesia (PC)
  • Fable (Xbox)
  • Project Zero (Xbox)
  • No More Heroes 2 (Wii)
  • Bully: Scholarship Edition (Wii)
  • Star Wars KOTOR (Xbox)
  • Oddworld: Strangers Wrath (Xbox)

There are definitely more but this has to be the bulk of it. What about you guys? Have you got an embarrassing backlog of games? Do tell.
