In the last entry of my gaming backlog countdown I went from 35 games to 30, and checked off three games on my PlayStation 3, plus two games I played on my PlayStation 4.
In this episode of the Geekare Humanum podcast, Sindre and Renate discuss video games from Sindre’s childhood. Everything from PlayStation 2, to Game Boy Color, to Xbox 360, to Nintendo 64, to PC gaming.
In the last entry of my gaming backlog countdown I went from 50 games to 45, and checked off five games I played with my girlfriend on the SNES Classic.
The idea of the project is to have up to 100 people share their favorite gaming memory.
This is not my favorite gaming memory, but it may be my most interesting one:
It was the fall of 2000, and I had just turned 10.
Back in February, I shared my favorite song from each ‘Miracle of Sound’ album.
This proved to be very difficult, as there are so many great songs there!
So I have decided to make a Top 10 or Top 5 list for each album, depending on how big the album is to begin with.
5. Breaking Down The Borders
I started writing a reply, but after 250 words I decided the topic deserved a full-fledged blog-post all to itself.
Gaming backlogs are a common problem in today’s society. They are much like that pile of books on your shelf that you have never gotten around to. You know that you should consume them at some point, but reading a book (or playing a game) is such a huge time-investment that many titles go un-read (or un-played) for years (or forever).
Turn back now, if you wish to avoid time-sinks!
For the rest, here is my gaming backlog:
Games I’m Playing
I am currently playing the Minerva’s Den dlc (downloadable content) for Bioshock 2, for the first time, so that I can listen to the new Watch Out For Fireballs podcast episode about it. After that I’ll play Thimbleweed Park and Transistor, for the same reason.
If you want to know more about WOFF, I wrote about them and my two other favorite podcasts here.
I have played 5 hours of Prey, and will go back to that once I finish the ones I am playing for the game-bookclub
I’m mostly finished with Heroes Of Might And Magic 3, need to retire that one soon. I played HOMM3 as a child, so this was just a nostalgia-dive for me.
Then I’m planning to try to Twitch-stream a short game, namely What Remains of Edith Finch.
Twitch is a platform where gamers can stream gameplay, audio and video to a live audience. I have never done it before, so I think it’s smart to start with a small game.
I also have The Black Watchmen, Uncharted 2-4, Fallout 1-2, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, Bloodborne, Invisible Inc, DOOM, Wolfenstein: The New Order, XCOM 2, Dishonored 1-2, Hotline Miami 1-2, Dark Souls 3, The Sly Trilogy and probably some I have forgotten.
That comes to a total of
28 games to play on my own
