It's great to see your Backlogtoberganza efforts are moving on apace, even with Disgaea 5 and MGSV vying for your attention. I've only played one of the games you've focused on for this entry, that being Super Meat Boy. I commend you for recognising that the game isn't for you, something I couldn't bring myself to do when I played it myself four or five years ago, but am happy to admit to in hindsight. I managed to make it to the game's initial end point, which was a huge achievement for me, but I have absolutely zero desire to go back to it and attempt to better my efforts. These days I'm happy to admit that the masocore indie movement that SMB was a part of simply isn't my cup of tea, a fact reflected in my decision to cut games like The Binding of Isaac from my Pile of Shame. This blog has also reminded me that I really need to check out the Disgaea series at some point. There must be an iteration of that series on PS3 or PSP that's available for pennies at this point, surely? Out of interest, which game would you recommend as a starting point to a guy like myself, with a decent amount of strategy RPG experience but zero knowledge of the Disgaea franchise specifically?
