Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jan 032020

A new year means a new round of Operation Backlog Completion, a goal in which in theory will help me conquer my game backlog and in reality only makes me realize that my backlog is an unstoppable force of doom.

But hey, last year I set a 50-game goal for myself, and this year I’m going to do the same.

(I’ve also decided to change the post title to reflect the year rather than the round number. It makes more sense and will be less discouraging as the years go on.)

Operation Backlog Completion 2020

I also listed 16 games I intended to play during the year, of which I played 6. Here’s hoping it goes better this year, as my new list includes the games I skipped from last year’s list, another crowdfunded game I backed, and my most-anticipated games of 2020.

And Color Splash. Just because I have a friend who really wants me to play it.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight (and maybe Origins, but let’s try for one thing at a time)
  • The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • Dragon Quest XI
  • Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition
  • Yooka-Laylee
  • Aviary Attorney
  • Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan
  • Dies Irae
  • The Great Gaias
  • Bug Fables
  • RE3make
  • Tales of Arise
  • Yakuza 3 (what, you thought I was going to put the entire Remastered Collection on this list?)
  • Psychonauts 2
  • Final Fantasy VII Remake
  • Paper Mario: Color Splash

Special mention goes to Aviary Attorney, which I intend to play not only before the end of 2020, but before the end of January, since Aviary Attorney is coming to the Switch on January 30.

Do you have any video game goals for this year?

    My 2020 goals include… Finish all routes of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and play through Dragon Quest XI S.

  2. There are just too many games, and so little time!
    It’s like you’re dealing with a… Zero Time Dilemma…!

    My goals include finishing some games I’ve got, like Life Is Strange: Before the Storm, trying to finally make even a small dent in my Steam library, Animal Crossing, and maybe finally try Judgment and/or Fire Emblem…

  3. Aviary Attorney is a neat game. I love the art.
