    :monster: Help WK with his Backlog!

    It's a new year which means it's time to try to clear out that backlog to make room for all the new stuff you obtained.

    I'm breaking this up by console/platform. Please choose one game from each console, or if you feel I need to focus on one console, place the games on the list in the order I should play them in. Thank you for your time!

    My List of important games to play:

    Steam

    • Bastion
    • Half Life 1 and/or 2 - Started first entry, probably at the halfway point. Not really my thing.
    • Deus Ex
    • Knights of the Old Republic
    • Braid - Started, but never got hooked
    • Fallout 1 - Started, but never got hooked.
    • Fallout 2
    • Undertale - Started, but never got hooked
    • Amnesia: The Dark Descent - Started, and learned I have a very high tolerance for horror.
    • The Stanley Parable
    • Papers Please - Loved but still want to get a better ending
    • FFXI - Restarted this, and I'm frankly too busy to really invest any time into this.


    PS3

    • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
    • Batman: Arkhum City
    • Mass Effect 3
    • Ni Nu Kuni: Wrath of the White Queen - Started, but really wasn't that impressed.
    • Uncharted series (I have not played any of them)
    • 3D Dot Game Heroes -Started, but lost interest.
    • Start over/finish Valkyria Chronicles...
    • Same as above but replace VC with White Knight Chronicles
    • Same as above but replace VC and WKC with Mirror's Edge
    • Star Ocean IV
    • Neir


    PS2

    • Beyond Good and Evil
    • The Bouncer - Tried to start, only to discover my PS2 controller is too busted to play it now. Thanks SFIII/GGX
    • Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2 - Finished the first one, but waited too long to start the sequel so replaying the first again.
    • Drakengard - Started an Holy smurf is the gameplay tedious...
    • GTA: Vice City - Started and lost interest.
    • Godhand
    • Killer 7
    • Shadow Hearts 1 and/or 2 - Started the first one, but didn't get far and forgot about it.
    • Steambot Chronicles
    • Tales of the Abyss
    • Yakuza
    • Zone of the Enders 2nd Runner
    • Dawn of Mana

    • Loco Roco

    • Finish P3P - I've been lazy trying to get the ending where Shinji survives, but I need to look up a guide for his final month. Not a fan of the UI.
    • Finish Star Ocean 1 - On the one hand, I'm apparently close to the end of the game, on the other hand, It has been so long since I played that I barely remember the plot. Definitely a weak entry for me.

    The best choices on the list

    Steam
    Knights of the Old Republic. It's rare for me to say this, but being dated makes it a bit hard to play. It's still a good game though.


    PS3
    Mass Effect Series. Seriously, start at 1.

    PS2
    Zone of the Enders 2nd Runner. An enjoyable game.

    PlayStation
    Your choice

    PSP
    No experience here.

    Wii
    Or here

    GameCube
    Skies of Arcadia. I enjoyed it way back when. Maybe it's still fun?

    N64
    LoZ: Majora's Mask

    SNES
    Tactics Ogre. Not entirely sure here, just a hunch.

    3DS
    Bravely Default (Once you finish 4 Heroes of Light) By reputation alone.

    DS
    Finish one of the half dozen games you started... like Revenant Wings or DQIX.

    Sega Stuff
    Can Shadowrun be put on this list? It's the greatest Sega game. I may have bias from my pen and paper Shadowrun days.

    My recommendations: Digital Devil Saga, Tactics Ogre, Bravely Default. I've played a lot of the others from the list and many are very good, but here are the ones I think deserve priority over others.

    If it didn't have mandatory combat sections and was just about the free running and chase, I would adore this game, but combat slows this game down and feels out of place with the concept.

    Wii
    Okami (of course the only thing worth playing on your Wii list is a PS2 game)
    Lmao, you sound like one of my friends.

    SNES
    Illusion of Gaia (almost said Mystic Quest so you could know true suffering, but my old LP of the game is marginally more enjoyable)
    Might just finish Mystic Quest (not like starting over is going to do anything for me) and then hit this game up.

    DS
    LoZ: Spirit Tracks (Don't even joke about finishing Revenant Wings. Ugh.)
    If I wasn't literally at the final boss battle, I would forget about it.

    You know, I'm not even going to suggest anything else until Knights of the Old Republic and Deus Ex are off this list. You can skip these two in the same way your body can skip oxygen and food.

    Not much knowledge, but Mr. Carny loved KotOR. I've also heard good things about Braid and Half Life, but they're rather different games, so it depends on what you fancy playing.

    PS3
    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Falg
    Batman: Arkhum City (yes I'm that far behind in the series)
    Mass Effect 3 (I have played the earlier entries)
    Ni Nu Kuni: Wrath of the White Queen
    Uncharted series (I have not played any of them)
    3D Dot Game Heroes
    Start over/finish Valkyria Chronicles... I know you'll love it WOLF CANOE IF YOU JUST GIVE IT ANOTHER CHANCE!
    Same as above but replace VC with White Knight Chronicles
    Same as above but replace VC and WKC with Mirror's Edge
    Mr. Carny wasn't terribly favourable about Black Flag, thinking the series ended rather neatly on the third game. As for me, I'd recommend Mass Effect 3. Yes, ending blah blah (I personally didn't mind the ending) but everything else about the game is great, and is worth playing regardless if you've played 1 and 2.

    I've heard good things about Ni Nu Kuni, and the Uncharted series is a classed PS exclusive (if you have a PS4, you might want to get the Nathan Drake collection). The other games? Not much experience with, so I can't say.

    PS2
    Beyond Good and Evil
    The Bouncer
    Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2
    Drakengard
    GTA: Vice City
    Godhand
    Killer 7
    Shadow Hearts 1 and/or 2
    Steambot Chronicles
    Tales of the Abyss
    Yakuza
    Zone of the Enders 2nd Runner
    GTA: Vice City is a very solid classic from this era, and if you've enjoyed other GTA games, it is worth playing. Not much knowledge of the others, frankly.

    PlayStation
    Arc the Lad III
    Parasite Eve
    Finish Saga Frontier II
    Finish one of my playthroughs...
    I've heard of Parasite Eve, which is something. Other than that, I've got nothing.

    PSP
    Prinny: Can I really be the hero?
    Loco Roco
    Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together
    Assassin's Creed:Bloodlines
    Finish P3P or Star Ocean 1
    I'd recommend finishing P3P if you've never beaten either the Male or Female stories. If you've beaten only the Male one, then finishing the Female route is also recommended.

    Tactics Ogre is good, from what I hear.

    N64
    LoZ: Majora's Mask
    Majora's Mask is a classic, really. Well worth playing.

    3DS
    Bravely Default (Once you finish 4 Heroes of Light)
    Persona Q
    Soul Hackers
    I'm playing Persona Q now. It's by no means the best Persona/SMT game ever, but it is good, and pays good tribute to the characters. Yes, they're flanderised somewhat, but it is interesting watching the two sets of characters interact, and the story is surprisingly interesting.

    Bravely Default is obviously well known about. If you don't fancy PQ, then that's also decent.

    DS
    LoZ: Spirit Tracks
    Rhaspsody: A Musical Adventure
    Finish one of the half dozen games you started... like Revenant Wings or DQIX.
    I've played Spirit Tracks and it's a decent Zelda game. Nothing truly special about it, though there are some interesting puzzles involving the use of Zelda's spirit.

    GameBoy/Advance
    DemiKids Light and/or Dark Edition
    Pokemon Silver
    Mega Man Xtreme


    Pokemon Silver is often seen as the best Pokemon game, so it is a good call to play it.

    Ni Nu Kuni: Wrath of the White Queen
    I've only played a bit of Mass Effect 3 so I can't comment too much, but I enjoyed 2 a lot. Ni No Kuni is also good but it's very long so be prepared for a time investment!

    PS2
    Tales of the Abyss
    Tales yes. Abyss is a really good game


    PlayStation
    Arc the Lad III
    Haven't played any but I have heard good things about this one. Can't say from a personal point though

    Ni Nu Kuni: Wrath of the White Queen (This game is fun and very pretty, but then everything grinds to a halt, while you grind)
    White Knight Chronicles (I have the same problem)

    Just Knights of the Old Republic 1? Or both? Because the second one just got a really good update after like 10 years, and they added achievements, upgraded resolutions options, added the ability to utilize the steam workshop, and added controller support. So it's really the best of all worlds right now. Like playing a modded Skyrim on PC with a console controller. I love it. Now if Bethesda would do that with Oblivion. Or BioWare with Mass Effect. Maybe I'd actually play those games on PC

    Yeah, no, I'm pretty sure Wolf likes to try out older games in their original release format first Tried to get him to try the Enhanced Edition of Baldur's Gate instead of the broke original. No go.

    Listen, if you're busted ass game can't hold up without mods, fan patches, and updates then it obviously wasn't that good to begin with.

    Kidding aside, I prefer playing games in their original format for the most part. Hard to appreciate good changes to a game if you don't know the original, and sometimes the original version has its own unique charm that gets changed when the game gets updated to modern taste. Final Fantasy III pretty much taught me that much.

    I don't have KotOR 2 yet, figured I should give the original a whirl first to see if I like it, but seeing how I have an almost masochistic pleasure with old school clunky RPGs and the fact that I actually love Star Wars despite rarely talking about it on the forum, I have a feeling it will be in my future at some point.
