Aim

Helping gamers eventually beat their backlogs slowly on a monthly updated basis.

Objective

Basically make a list of 10 games you will be going to start playing. Your aim is to complete at least 50% of that list. there is no actual time limit as to when you must complete the list, but seeing this more as a monthly update of the list.

When you complete 50% or more of your game list, the next step is to replace those finished games to new unfinished games to complete; all while still keeping the other % of unfinished games in your list.

Posts will consist of;

Updates of completed games, adding of new unfinished games replacing finished ones. monthly update of how you are going overall with the list and any problems you may be having.

This thread is to not replace the "what have you just played?" thread. Conversely, you should be posting in that thread the games you are playing in your list. This thread here, is more towards the tracking of completed games.

I will see to it, that this thread gets updated once per month with participant's progress on the first post. Though for those who love to have their progress stored more professionally it's preferable to signed up to a backloggery type site that logs your progress. i.e 'the backloggery'.

Oh dear god... this would be... just... painful.... will have to get things organised and go ahead.

Oh, Playa, I don't think Nintendogs really has a "completion" to it does it???

05. Wario Land: The Shake Dimension [Wii]
06. Zack and Wiki: Quest for Barbados' Treasure [Wii]
07. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess [Wii]
08. Grand Theft Auto Vice City [PC]
09. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time [N64]
10. Mega Man 9 [Wiiware]

So my first 5 will probably be tackled in order, since I've started the first two already.

I'm aiming to bro-it-up with Lucrei on MM9, cause I need some serious motivation, and also with Playa on GTA.

I think we should also be able to change our lists as this thread grows, in case we have any mutual titles in our backlogs.

sooo much madness, that it just might work

Why not?

exactly =3

Oh, Playa, I don't think Nintendogs really has a "completion" to it does it???

You're right, I thought it'd be a good idea to have group discussion on certain games with finishing/completion dilemmas. Personally I see nintendogs as completed by having the set amount of dogs in your home with having completed all trophies, learnt all the tricks, and maybe collected every piece of accessory.

I've beaten all the stages bar Hornet Man, so I'd be happy to offer some advice if you're stuck. The majority of it is just learning the stage through memorisation and tyring to minimise damage risk. Of course, using the right weapon against a boss makes things a lot less hectic as well.

UPDATE!!
  • Final Fantasy II: Dawn of Souls [Game Boy Advance]
  • Pokemon Pinball [Game Boy Color]
  • Nintendogs daschund & friends [Nintendo DS]
  • Animal Crossing: Lets Go To The City [Wii]
  • Tomena sanner [WiiWare]
  • Kid Icarus [Virtual Console]
  • Star Craft [PC]
  • Need For Speed: Underground [Nintendo GameCube]
  • Gran Theft Auto [Playstation 2]
  • Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars [Nintendo 3DS]
Doing really good so far with my first list. I've just stayed up all night to finish off the final boss in Final Fantasy II. I was surprised at how easy it was with the use of a certain weapon. considering I was told to use a certain spell. Also a few days ago I clockedTomena Sanner on Wii Ware. So 2 down and 8 to go. I've just started now with Ghost recon on the 3DS; hopefully I can get through it within a week. Animal Crossing will need some work. Might just also start on Nintendogs Daschund version lightly since it's limited to play time. Finally Pokemon Pinball, painfully slow but getting there.

Got 3 weeks off work coming up with no pans to do anything, so I think clearing out games I've wanted to finish will be a thing I will do.
I'll have to take a bit of time to think of an actual list, but I'm sure I'll be able to finish a few that I've been wanting to finish in that time!

So hopefully get some time to myself this weekend, gonna try and finish off Trauma Team and maybe Epic Mickey. Also don't think I'm too far off from finishing Kid Icarus Uprising, would have it done by now had I not started playing Kid Icarus 3D Classics and suddenly been hooked on that.

Sorry it's slightly off-topic, I have really wanted Trauma Team for so looooooooonng!!! (seriously, like two years now)
Will it ever come out here??? I'm guessing not because I's been out in the US for about 2 years now, so if it were going to come here it would've already :cry: But I can still hope

@ninjacatfish, flamecondor and pchan, If you want to, I will gladly swap some of the games on my list for the above specified games on your list so that we can play the games together or in benanen's post; bro-it-up. I'm currently using most of my gaming time on Ghost Recon Shadow Wars 3DS atm, but will gladly put in time for other games when you guys are ready to play the above games. The games I'm willing to change are Star Craft [PC], Gran Theft Auto [Playstation 2] and Nintendogs daschund & friends [Nintendo DS]. Otherwise if the games I am changing interest your choice of bro'in-it-up then holla at me regardless.

edit: also this was also to be the post where I say it's ok to change any current game on your list that may be doing your head in. We don't want anyone forcing themselves through any game in dissatisfaction and seeing it as a chore.

Sure! The only one I was dead set on was Icarus.
Are you saying we all bro it up, as in play the same game at the same time, and share the experiences/hardships together?
My two are at different stages. Mario.. Shamefully, I have barely touched. Mariokart, I'm just working on getting all the CCs and stars etc.

That said, Final Fantasy III is another one on my todo list. I'm up to the final labyrinth/boss and god dammit. i tried to keep all of my classes in their "cutscene" prestige classes, i.e. Luneth Dark Knight, Err.. blondie Dragoon, Refia Devout, and dippy green guy summoner. All the "guides" I've read says you pretty much all need to be high summoners (whatever they're called, i forget), ninjas or onion knights. I pretty much said "screw this", and stopped playing. but hey, if I've got others to share my pain, sure!

I might chuck Mega Man 9 onto my list. I bought it on PS3 when it came out but have barely touched it. I think I've always had more of a soft spot for the Mega Man X games rather than the original series.

Throwing up a list, let's see where it gets me...
  • Final Fantasy XIII (PS3)
  • Dark Souls (PS3)
  • ICO (PS3)
  • Shadow of the Colossus (PS3)
  • Street Fighter X Tekken (X360)
  • Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (X360)
  • Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn (Wii)
  • The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (Wii)
  • Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)
  • VVVVVV (PC)
Most of these are going to require mad hours. Hell, I'm already 42 hours in to FFXIII, and it just keeps going.

i know the feeling. That's why it's good to see you having 1 rpg in your list at the one time unless you were towards finishing the game.

As for me, my list is still unchanged. Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars [Nintendo 3DS] is roughly on the 50% completion mark. I am hoping to cross it off my list as finished mid May.

@pchan, preferably bro'in-it up with a freshly started copy of whatever game. In this case, I'll keep my list unchanged for now.

OK in that case I'm going to drop out Epic Mickey for now, I do plan on coming back to it later though, I'm god damn determined to finish that game, swapping it out for Lost Winds Winter of Melodias.

New and Improved list
1: Monsters Tale (DS)
2: Kid Icarus Uprising (3DS)
3: Trauma Team (Wii)
4: Lost Winds Winter of Melodias (WiiWare)
5: Mario & Luigi Bowsers Inside Story (DS)
6: Batman Arkham City (360)
7: Professor Layton and the Last Spector (DS)
8: Final Fantasy 3 (DS)
9: Endless Ocean 2 (Wii)
10: Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (Wii)

This week I've been mostly plowing through Mario & Luigi 3, slowly getting there, am closing in on the final parts of the game so hopefully shouldn't have that much longer. Also this weekend I'm gonna finish off Trauma Team and play through Lost Winds 2 as I think that should be doable. And if time permitting Kid Icarus Uprising as well. Once those are done thats my first 5 and I have some good games I'm lining up next.
