Stuff I should probably finish one day (AKA: Backlog of Shame)

I'm probably going to take a break from video games soon, but before I do that I figure I should make a list of stuff I'd like to finish one day (or start, for that matter). Unfortunately for you, this list is populated by GOOD games, as I think my bad game wormhole is nearing the end and there's already a list for that.

I haven't had any issues playing the GOG release of Might & Magic IX on my windows 7x64 machine, is that the version you're using or retail discs?

Yep, using the GOG version. It magically stopped working one day and constant reinstalling doesn't help.

In my humble opinion Final Fantasy XII is pretty great. I would like to get my hands on the Zodiac Job's Killer version myself.

Why the break from games? Burnout?

In my egomaniacal opinion, it isn't.

Just for that I ain't bumping your Dragon Quest thread for a month!

I've had Nocturne since 2005 but never could finish it for one reason or another. I should look into that again as well. I'm also thinking about getting the new M and M, but 30 dollars seems high for a game in its condition. I am a big fan of the old grid style, party-based RPGs though. Do you think it's worth the money?

If that's all you got on your pile of shame, you are doing really really well.

@nrh79: I got M&M X because I had to know the kind of game they were trying to make. You're probably good waiting for the full release sometime next year. I'll just say that it seems really promising as a fan of the series.

This is what I had off the top of my head. I'm sure there are more games that I'd like to complete spread between my GOG and Steam libraries, but these are ones I have a realistic chance of completing. I'm also ignoring stuff I'm in the process of playing.

A bit of that, yeah, but it's more related to me attempting to figure out what I want to do with my life.

Let's just say I own a copy of Final Fantasy XII and leave it at that.

If it makes you feel better, I stopped counting when my pile of shame passed 100 this year. :(

Breaks from games aren't a bad thing. Sometimes it helps bring the drive back and makes them seem fresh again. Longest break I've taken was roughly close to two years and while I missed many great games, when I did start again it felt pretty good again in a way it hadn't for years.
