Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Jan 032022

My backlog completion progress got dealt a harsh blow last year due to the PlayStation Store shutdown news, which prompted me to pick up a significant number of PSP, Vita, and PlayStation Classics titles before they changed their minds.

But this year will be the year to make a significant dent! Right? Right??

Although it was close, with me playing two short games on New Year’s Eve to hit the goal, I did beat 100 games last year, so let’s aim for that again.

Operation Backlog Completion 2022

Last year, my game completion goals also included 17 specific games, of which one was delayed and I beat 6.

So for this year’s list, we will carry over the remaining titles from last year’s, along with my most-anticipated games of 2022 and a couple new additions I want to be sure to play this year.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight (followed by Arkham Origins)
  • The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings (followed by Witcher 3)
  • Dragon Quest XI
  • Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition
  • Yooka-Laylee
  • Aurion: Curse of the Kori-Odan
  • Dies Irae
  • The Great Gaias
  • The Cruel King and the Great Hero
  • Trails in the Sky SC (followed by Trails in the Sky the 3rd and Trails from Zero)
  • Triangle Strategy
  • God of War Ragnarok
  • Bayonetta 3
  • Yakuza 5
  • AI: The Somnium Files
  • The Good Life

Last year also saw the release of a game I backed on Kickstarter, The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark, but I played that in October (and played the first bonus case last week). Meanwhile, I’ve added AI: The Somnium Files to the list because I want to play it ahead of its sequel!

(Update: I forgot The Good Life also came out last year, so I added it!)

You know, this list has looked pretty similar for… several years now. Maybe this will be the year I finally cut it down!

Do you have any gaming-related goals for 2022?

  1. Yeah, I am seeing a few returning and older games on that list. Though I will take personal credit for delaying Tales of Vesperia in favor of Tales of the Abyss 😉

  2. Clearly I need to finish Pokémon Shining Pearl

    I need to start and play through Monster Hunter Stories 2. Same with Bug Fables.

    And that’s it for currently-existing things I plan to play.

  3. […] addition to the overall number, I also made a list of 20 specific games I wanted to play last year. Of those, I finished… three. (One of those […]
