AC: Revelations 3%
Bulletstorm 11%

If you own them all and dont want to go from the worst to the best you can start with Dead Space 2 since its really good game that is not too long and with a bit of luck you may still be able to try the multiplayer.

You can bang out Bulletstorm in a day or two, so I would start there.

Bulletstorm is a pretty decent game you can get through quickly without much hassle, I'd go for that first.

Yeah, Bulletstorm is fairly short and an absolute BLAST. You should definitely start there. Final Fantasy XIII is so long... I actually like it, but in the time it takes you to play that, you could have played Bulletstorm, Dead Space 2 and Darksiders and crossed almost half of your list off.

I voted Darksiders but New Vegas would also be an acceptable choice.

I also voted for Darksiders, its a good starting place on that list. Good way to step back into it. Im smashing through my Shame Pile at the moment an regretting skipping a few titles -- especially Spec Ops: The Line which is fantastic.

Ico + SOTC is the only game on that list I would play if I hadn't yet.

Ico and Shadow of the Colossus because:

  1. They are both pretty short.
  2. The are both great (ok I need to play Ico but people say it's amazing)
  3. Both are very unique
  4. If you are interested in the kind of thing both are brought up when people talk about "games as art."
  5. Shadow of the Colossus is so fucking rad.

Ico & Shadow of the Colossus because they're the best... or maybe keep them for last because they're the best?

One thing I forgot no mention in the first post, I've already played Ico & Shadow of the Colossus for the PS2, however I want to play them in HD.

Play Fallout: New Vegas as it's too good to pass up, just be prepared to restart your PS3 every half an hour.

If you have a bunch of time you wanna kill, Fallout's the way to go.

Darksiders, Fallout New Vegas, and AC Revelations are the ones I've beat on that list, so I would obviously suggest those. Especially New Vegas, which is one of my favorite games ever. Though the PS3 is the worst platform for the game, I've heard it fairs much better than 3 did.

Bulletstorm is alright too, but I got bored with it about 80% through the game.

Shadow of the Collosus and ICO, hands down. Though I know how you feel, I still got a copy of the HD collection sitting around I've hardly touched.

Darksiders aka the Swiss Army knife of games.

AC: Rev just to get the ending of that part of the story if you've been enjoying it so far. If not then the ICO collection is a good choice.

I'm a little surprise that AC: Revelations is the last game, it seems that you guys didn't enjoy it at all. I confess that I just want to finish for the story.

Bulletstorm is one of the most fun FPS games in recent memory

But when the story itself is ashamed of calling itself a decent story, it ceases to be a story and thus you shouldn't care about it.

Nah mean?

Have you played Fallout 3? If not, start New Vegas. If you have I'd probably say Revelations if you are interested at all in black flag, just so you are up to date for the release.

Bulletstorm. Get it out of your system early or it will just sit there forever.

*reads thread title* hey it's not nice to call us collectively a "pile of shame" =(…

Also you should play shadow of the colossus definitely

I'd go Bulletstorm first because it's relatively short and fun throughout as long as you don't try and take it seriously. I'd follow it up with Darksiders to get you in the mood for some older games, then finish with Ico and SoTC.

You can beat darksiders in a couple of days if you focus on it. Then i'd probably play bulletstorm. I've never played it but I've heard its pretty short so you could probably beat it in a day or two.

If you've already played ICO & SOTC I recommend Dead Space 2.

And forget FFXIII, the only pile that belongs on is a pile of trash.
