I hope you do! Although I find Backloggery to be more of a burden/mental block in getting the backlog worked on than an actual help.

I like having the resource available so I can remember which games I've beaten and which I haven't. Since they added the unplayed designation it allows me to focus a bit better; I try to spend more time on played unbeaten games than starting new unplayed games.

I also plan on keeping a full track of my 2015 list in the next thread like the rest of you have in this thread.

Light Crusader should end up on my 2015 list. Been meaning to get through that one for some time.

It really has some fantastic vintage-Treasure art stuff going on...I'd be interested to know your thoughts.

FWIW, samsonlonghair thinks it is the "finest" RPG of all time :lol:

Edit: Also, just above that in that thread you say it is your favorite Treasure game...but you've not gotten through it :?: :lol:

If I have beaten it then it was in 1995 or so. My brother owned it when we were kids. My memory is a bit hazy.

I have owned it since 2010-ish. Messed around with it, but haven't finished it. I'm not wild about Treasure in general and haven't finished most of their games - so LC being the "best" perhaps doesn't mean much. :lol:

I really need to play more Genesis and TG16 RPGs in general. I've spent so much time with the SNES.

I hope you do! Although I find Backloggery to be more of a burden/mental block in getting the backlog worked on than an actual help.


why do you feel that way? just curious. for me it's better to have an outline of what i need to accomplish rather than just having a bunch of unfinished libraries with stacks of games waiting for me to play them.

A couple of reasons:

-Setting it up and keeping up with it is an extra layer of maintenance I don't want to bother with, and would serve as a deterrent.
-I don't always concur with their categories of how a game is finished, nor do I like the general idea of categorizing my own playing with a gradations of completion rubric.
-Having a giant list of games I still need to beat staring at me in the face when I log in is daunting...better to have them sitting on a shelf with a lot of other games that I have beaten, tucked away in cabinets, etc.

I get that it works for many people and I have recommended checking it out (I mentioned it in that Kotaku article, for example), but for me this thread works much better as a standalone kind of thing. That said, I do create some spreadsheets/text documents with working lists of things I want to tackle from time to time...and they can be helpful.

This. I used to obsessively maintain my backloggery but then it occurred to me that I was spending much more time curating my game collection than I was playing - which, in turn, made me do some quick math and arrive at the conclusion that it would take me years and years to catch up to the backlog I had created just to curate.

It's a really neat feature that I think would be more interesting if it were an app that could be installed on game consoles or PCs to automate a lot of the work. But then, as Dave pointed out, you run into issues defining when some games are 'done'.
The PSTV is amazing.

Yeah I'm an obsessive list-maker and I don't even care for the backloggery stuff.

Seems more useful to make a list of games I have beaten (see this thread) than a huge list of those I haven't.

Not to mention the fact that things get muddied when you consider how much of my collection is 2nd gen loopers and whatnot.

Games Beaten 2014:

1. GTA V(360)
2. Brothers(PSN)
3. Infamous(PS3)*
4. Infamous 2(PS3)
5. Remember Me(PS3 PS+ Freebie)
6. Shadow of the Colossus(PS3 HD Collection)*
7. Watch Dogs(PC)
8. Aliens Colonial Marines(360)
9. Titanfall(PC)
10. Battlefield 4(PC)(Hard)*
11. Adventure(Atari 2600)
12. Doom(Xbox)
13. Beyond Two Souls(PS3)
14. Killzone(PS3 KZ Triology)
15. Killzone 2(PS3 KZ Triology)
16. Call of Duty Ghosts(PS4)

As like most CoD games it's a fun/easy shooter with plenty of crazy scenarios and flashy set pieces. Interested to see where this series goes with the next entry with the way it ended. Also had a lot of fun with the Space/Ocean scenes. If there was one thing the game needed more of though it would have to be Riley :lol: . He was really fun to mess around with and it was kind of disappointing how little he was used in the second half of the game. I don't really know why the bothered bringing him back for that one scene near the end. In fact that scene makes no freaking sense now that I think about it how the hell did he get there by himself?
