A Geeky Gal knows how to do Fandom Friday prompts. This one comes from her Geeky Gal 2 pack and covers backlog games. I am no stranger to a gaming backlog and go back and forth on how I feel about it. I define my games as a collection now and appreciate that I will always have a game to play. I will not play every game that I want to play, however I love the idea of playing them all. They bring me joy either way. I also realise that by purchasing games I am supporting the industry that I love and means so much to me and the people that bring these games to life.
To cover this, I am breaking it down by platform because as much as I would love to say otherwise I have plenty of unplayed games on each platform. Today covers the Nintendo Switch.
Ah the Switch, I play you handheld for the most part as you fit into my life perfectly. To be honest I have the least of a backlog here as I tend to at least start every game I own for the Switch. In addition, since you can get a little time here and there to play any game progress seems to move forward much faster than elsewhere. However I still have a couple of games that I haven’t started yet.
Little Dragons Cafe
I was waiting on the price falling and one day saw it low enough for me to go for it. I just haven’t started it yet. I’ll be honest it sold me on it by containing the words dragon and cafe and the art style. It looks like something I can play in small pieces and cute enough that I enjoy the sweetness of it.
Yoshi’s Crafted World
I know, I am shocked that this is on my backlog. I just haven’t started it yet. My Yoshi amiibo does seem to be judging me for this fact. In all honesty I am slightly judging myself for not starting this yet.
I picked this up as it is one that I kept hearing about and thought it sounded like a very “me” game. It just looks interesting and I am looking forward to starting but I need to actually start it.
And that is it for my Switch backlog at least at the moment. I try to be good with my backlog on Switch compared to my other consoles and at the moment I think I’m doing well with that. Though I have several Switch games on the go at the moment, either actively playing or games that are always on the I will pick up when I feel like it so still up there in my mind to play. The Switch just seems so easy to pick
If you have a Switch, what games are on your backlog for it? Or if you have played these games which one shall I play next? Let me know in the comments.
