Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jan 022019
 

Last year, I once again vowed to play at least 40 games to create a dent in my backlog.

Once again, I played more than 40 games and my backlog did not shrink.

This is because of free game promotions, Humble Bundles, and the sort of decision-making that led me to buy six God of War games instead of just the new one.

So we’re doing it again, and for Operation Backlog Completion: Round 4, I challenge myself to beat 50 games in 2019!

Operation Backlog Completion 2019

For the past two years, I’ve also listed specific games I wanted to complete during the year: my most-anticipated games and games I backed on Kickstarter.

Of the games I listed last year, I played Cosmic Star Heroine and Vampyr. I decided to skip Octopath Traveler, Kingdom Hearts III was delayed, and The Wolf Among Us: Season 2 was cancelled, which still hurts.

(I was waiting for my physical copy of Yooka-Laylee to arrive.)

This year, I’ll play the games I skipped, my most-anticipated games of 2019, and also The Great Gaias, which gives us the following list:

  • Batman: Arkham Knight (and possibly Arkham Origins)
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (after playing The Witcher 2)
  • Dragon Quest XI
  • Kingdom Hearts III
  • Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition
  • Resident Evil 2 (remake)
  • Luigi’s Mansion 3
  • Judgment
  • Yooka-Laylee
  • Aviary Attorney
  • Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan
  • Dies Irae
  • Shadows of Adam
  • A Hat in Time
  • The Great Gaias

Do you have any video game goals for 2019?
