Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Sep 062017

At the start of the year, I declared Round 2 of Operation Backlog Completion, my determination to finally break my video game backlog.

I set a goal of 40 games for this year.

Since it’s now September, we’ve fully completed 8 months of the year. If I want to be on track for my goal, I should be roughly 67% finished. That’s around 27 games.

So far, I’ve completed 29 games in 2017, so I’m slightly ahead of where I should be.

And what about my specific backlog goals?

I intended to play:

  • Cosmic Star Heroine
  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (after playing The Witcher 2 first)
  • Yooka-Laylee
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
  • Tales of Berseria
  • Finding Paradise
  • Muv-Luv Alternative
  • Aviary Attorney
  • Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan

(And maybe, but probably not, Mighty No. 9.)

Two more games I crowd-funded, Dies Irae and Shadows of Adam, also game out this year, with A Hat in Time on its way.

Of these, I have played… Kingdom Hearts 2.8 and Tales of Berseria. I’ve started Muv-Luv Alternative, and I wanted to wait for the Switch version of Yooka-Laylee.

That leaves me with 4 months left in the year to play the rest! Plus I want to make a special effort to play horror games for October… and my overall backlog seems to be growing.

Well, that’s the current state of my backlog completion project. How do you handle your video game backlogs?

  1. “and I wanted to wait for the Switch version of Yooka-Laylee.”

    So did you just give up on wanting to play Yooka-Laylee at all?
