If you don't know what a backlog is it is basically all of the games you have not finished or completed and are just sitting on your shelf collecting dust begging to be played and beaten. Unfortunately this happens to most collectors such as myself since we buy so much in quanity we don't have enough time to play all of them. So for the summer a lot of gamers like to set themselves a challenge to the amount of games in thier collections that they want to beat. For most they usually set it to 5 or below, but for me I like to give myself a little challenge so I have 7 games I would like to complete. Now most of the games I'll be talking about I have played and am quite far into them, but just haven't beaten or finished. Its sad because I enjoy a majority of these titles and I should've beaten them earlier, but oh well its the best time to start because I'll be off school in a couple of weeks so there will be far more time for gaming. So here is my summer backlog challenge. If you have one that you would like to make I would like to know what games you want to beat during the summer. So lets start off.............
1. Panzer Dragoon Orta
Man this game is brilliant. The first day I got it I got through half the game just wondering how I never picked it up back in day, but unfortunately I put it down figuring I'd go back to it later, but sadly I haven't. So this is a prioirty one to beat since I think this may be one of the best rail shooters ever.
2. Transformers War For Cybertron
About time we get a good transformers game. I love how they use generation 1 storyline and characters and not Micheal Bay garbage. To the games credit it uses the license very well and is an enjoyable third person shooter. I am about halfway into the Deceptacon Campaign and definetley need to beat that and the Autobot Campaign as well.
I like this games premise and idea. Capturing monsters to fight other monsters is really cool and reminds me of Pokemon, but it is just really repetitive. You have two characters to play as and so the storyline is mixed with you playing as both of them. They don't play much different and also you're going through the same game world and fighting the same enemies. But I do like it none the less and do want to beat it.
4. Dragon Quest 6 Realms of Revelations
Ok so I bought this game the day it came out and really enjoyed it and sunk in about 10 hours after a couple of days, but then there was an annoying boss that I couldn't beat and I didn't want to grind so I gave up. This is an rpg where I know you have to sink a lot of time into so the summer is the perfect time to do that.
5. Dragon Age 2
Despite how much I love the first Dragon Age I have never even played this. I bought this on Black Friday last year for $14 brand new and never even played it. I know boo me, but I now really want to play it and that is exactly what I'm going to do.
6. Infinite Undiscovery
Its not that this game is bad, but I just stopped playing it after a couple of hours because I got frustrated after you get inside the castle level in the beginning ( if you played this game you might know). So yeah I keep getting killed and don't know what to do so I might just start up a new playthrough and play the game from scracth.
7. Metroid Prime Hunters
I love this game. It works perfectly on the ds with nice controls unfortunatly like many other metroid games I don't like backtracking all too much so I don't know what to do. None the less this game needs to be beat.
