Operation Backlog Completion 2018
Jan 032018

It’s a new year, and that means a new year’s worth of attempts to make a dent in my video game backlog. Last year, I challenged myself to play at least 40 games in 2017.

I succeeded!

…and my remaining backlog is larger than it was a year ago. I blame Humble Bundle and several free game promotions.

Therefore, it’s time for Operation Backlog Completion: Round 3! I was tempted to raise the goal again, but 40 feels like a reasonable number. In 2018, I’ll complete 40 more games.

Last year, I also set two additional goals: I would play all of the games I had previously listed as my most-anticipated games of the year, as well as any games I backed on Kickstarter.

I did not get through all of these games on the list, but I will play them in 2018! (Along with my most-anticipated games of 2018, assuming they aren’t delayed, and additional Kickstarter games that came out last year.)

So, in 2018, I will play:

  • Cosmic Star Heroine
  • Batman: Arkham Knight (and possibly Arkham Origins)
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (after playing The Witcher 2)
  • Vampyr
  • Dragon Quest XI
  • The Wolf Among Us: Season 2
  • Project Octopath Traveler
  • Kingdom Hearts III
  • Yooka-Laylee
  • Aviary Attorney
  • Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan
  • Dies Irae
  • Shadows of Adam
  • A Hat in Time

These are my gaming goals for 2018. What are yours?

  1. Well done! That is good progress. It’s almost a good thing Humble Bundle seems to be getting worse value for money these days for that reason. xD

    My gaming goal is similar to yours, it’s just less organized. I wish to get through as much backlog as possible. Definitely I want to clear all the new games I got over Christmas.Two down already, so it’s a good start.
