I asked this question last year and when I look back on the list of games I wanted to finish, I’m actually surprised I got some of them. That includes Deadly premonition, Radiant Historia, Pikmin 3, connection between worlds, trace memory, and No more heroes. The connection between them all is that they were available on the Switch or DS and I could play them late at night after everyone fell asleep as I had almost no free time during the day.
This year my backlog has worsened and I haven’t even included the new generation of consoles. Motivated by a feeling of helplessness from the circumstances of this year, I ended up buying a slew of DS / 3DS games on eBay. This contains Kid Icarus Uprising, Dragon Quest IX, Shovel Knight, Moon Knight, Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, Castlevania: Portrait of the Ruin
I know falling behind is a good problem. When I was a kid, my family could rarely afford new games, so I had to play the same games over and over until I could get a new game. I think this is where my love for role play was born because they gave so much for their money. Not only are there so many great games these days, but so many that they are epic and have too many things to do. I need to prioritize my list and hope to reach as many as possible.
Kotaku, the question today is, which games behind you do you most hope to finish in the New Year?
