Hey guys, With the PS4 set to be announced on Feb 20th, have any of you guys got a backlog of games that you want to work through before the next gen consoles? Here's mine: 2012 games: Lego Batman 2 Transfomers Fall of Cybertron Xcom: Enemy Unknown Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse MOH Warfighter NFS Most Wanted RE 6 PSN Games: Flower Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD Journey The Unfinished Swan Mass Effect Crysis The Cave Not a huge backlog but 2013 is going to be banner year for games, this is just my 2012 list. I really want to play what I've missed before the next gen consoles. I'm interested in seeing what games you guys have still got to play.

Not much. I'm currently going through MGS Peace Walker HD. Made a start on Dark Souls Artorias of the Abyss. I haven't played the game for 9 months and I'm on the NG++ cycle, which means the Sanctuary Guardian is making me his b!tch on every attempt. -_-

Getting Sleeping Dogs through PS+ next week; God of War: Ascension, The Last of Us, GTA V and Dark Souls II could be the last batch of games I get for the PS3.

I currently have around 35 games that I have yet to touch in my collection. I plan on sticking with this gen for the next 5-7 years depending on the quality of titles next gen. I am constantly on the hunt for older, less expensive titles. My list of most wanted games for my backlog include:

-

Heavy Rain.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom.

Lords of Shadow.

Mirror's Edge.

Prototype.

To name a smidgen. I expect to have a collection nearing 100 games by the time I buy a new console. PS4/5.

LOL so you may be using P3 as your main console in 2020?

There's a strong chance of that yes. I don't need the next evolution in video games whenever it bares its head. This gen has nothing but content, so much so that even with close a 100 games in my collection(in the future), I would still have played a tiny fraction of titles available. More than enough for my 3-5hrs/week hobby.

Too many to list without embarassing myself, thanks to my obsession with sticking with 1 game per platform at a time.

#11 Posted by koolyoe (138 posts) -

If ps4 has backwords compatibility and digital support for the ps3 games I have I will buy ps4 day 1. Otherwise I will wait a few for the "improvements."

For backlog I still have to play/beat:

Red dead redemption

Ni no kuni

35 untouched games?! WOW! Seems like the rest of you guys have manageable lists.

Too many. I'll still be playing my PS3 well into 2014, and it will still probably be used after then especially if the PS4 isn't BC.

What's wrong with that? I could see myself sticking with the current generation for 3 or 4 more years. There's really no need for a PS4.

I like pretty graphics, no jaggy edges, no pop-in and no screen tearing. Plus improved AI. So there is real need for PS4 because PS3 is very outdated.

1080p 60fps needs to be the standard...

My thoughts exactly. When PS4 is released PC will already be ahead. So are you going to say next where's PS5. No offence dude but PC would suit you better.

I have no intention of buying a PS4 until Christmas 2015 at the earliest, so I have plenty of time.

I have an obscene number of games I either haven't opened, or barely dabbled in. Doesn't look like I will ever get to all them. Sadly so many of these games are the PS3's best gems, and I wasted too much time playing lesser games. I do think because of this backlog, that I will not be buying a PS4 right away. I will probably wait at least for the first "bundle". Child of Eden Demon's Souls Dark Souls Ni No Kuni Katamari Forever 3D Dot Game Heroes Dragon's Dogma (this one unfortunately glitched on me, don't think I will start over) Sly Cooper HD Trilogy Ratchet HD Trilogy Jak and Daxter HD Trilogy Devil May CRY HD Collection (just beat DMC1, but I want to beat all 3) Metal Gear Solid HD Collection Hitman HD Collection Ar Tonelico Qoga Resonance of Fate Star Ocean: The Last Hope International Final Fantasy XIII Final Fantasy XIII-2 Infamous Infamous 2 Little Big Planet 2 Little Big Planet Karting Saw 2 Yakuza 3 Yakuza 4 Yakuza: Dead Souls Mafia II (360) Bully (360) Birds of Steel (360) Dust: An Elysian Tale (360/XBLA) 'Splosion Man (360/XBLA) Trials HD (360/XBLA) This list doesn't even include all the great games I've SKIPPED this gen that I wanted to get, but decided to just say "f-it" and play it on PC whenver I get to them. That includes Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Deus Ex, Far Cry 3, XCOM, etc. I'm basically boycotting those games on consoles. Right now I'm playing Skyrim on 360 (just because it came bundled with my 360). Honestly this game is a HUGE time sink. I probably could have played about 10-15 games off that list in the time I'm wasting playing Skyrim LOL.

LOL, yes, my list is a lot like this one. I always end up with a lot of games that barely get touched before the next gen comes around. I end up selling most of them at the launch of the new system. Just the way it goes. Its huge waste of money and i hope to keep it under control next gen, but something tells me i am doomed to repeat my history.

My backlog is absurd. It's perfect really because I like to wait until the next gen consoles hit a price drop and come out with better hardware.
