Your Stack Of Shame: What Do You Want To Tackle From Your Backlog First?

Posted on Monday, December 31 @ 11:42:57 Eastern by Keri_Honea
After this jam-packed Fall of releases, it's nice to have a little bit of downtime before the barrage of the first quarter unleashes upon us. I have until about mid-February to work on my lovely stack of shame that has actually grown larger over the Christmas holiday. (I knew I should have removed some of those games from my Amazon wishlist!)

The question is, where do I start first?


I've started a number of these games already: Dragon Age: Origins, Resistance 2, Halo 3: ODST, Inversion, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, and Assassin's Creed 3. A part of me feels like I need to work on these first or just get rid of them (except for Halo 3: ODST... that one was a gift so I'll never part with it).

And then there's the other part of me that wants to play those highly acclaimed games like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Borderlands so I can see what the hype is all about.

I admit I'm having serious motivational problems moving forward with AC3, since my game time was riddled with game-breaking bugs. I know that they have been supposedly resolved with the most recent patches, but in many ways, the experience has already been soured. I think that speaks volumes about whether I will play it again, but at the same time, I'm not ready to officially say I'm done. Many people liked it, so there's a chance I will, right?

I'm also having some motivational problems with both Amalur and Dragon Age, simply because I know both will take a lot of time, and that's something I don't have much of. If only I was in my 20s with no kids; how I miss the weekends of having nothing to do but play games.

Are you working on anything from your backlog during this downtime?

Do you have any recommendations for me? (From my stack of shame please... don't add anything else to it just yet.)
