The Backlog

This is a list of games that I own that have not been completed. Some of them I have never played, while others I didn't get into or enjoy when I did play them. Those I didn't enjoy the first time around may never get another chance if I keep buying new games, but I'm ok with that.

It's also a running log of what I'm playing at the moment. The list hasn't really changed much in the last year or so, for a few good reasons.

First, I've been buying a lot of games on Steam, which I track differently (why? No idea). They're generally games I've picked up cheap, that I've not played before, and often in genres I haven't played a lot of - so the novelty is a big draw.

Secondly, the list is more and more coming down to the games I've already played bits of before, or sequels to games I've played before. As of this note, my backlog is 21 games, and 17 of those are either games I've played before (and stopped playing for some reason), or sequels to games I've played before.

Finally, of 21 games, 18 of them are some variant of JRPG - and those games take a while.

Recent Activity: Bravely Default (3DS), Enslaved (PC).

Bravely Default is a really great game so far. Currently I'm around level 25, and I have 12 of 24(?) job classes now, so I'd say I'm nearing halfway? Maybe?

Enslaved is about halfway through or thereabouts - I've reached chapter 8 (of 14 total).
The game isn't bad at all, but it's nothing amazing either. So far, at least.
