I did this a few years ago and made close to 0 attempts to actually play the games mentioned. If I recall correctly I believe I played one game to completion but I may be misremembering. So why should I believe that this list will be any different? In the last few years I have tried many games from my backlog and even dived back in to games that I have started but failed to finish before. Perhaps I have grown as a person or maybe I have just been in the mood for the games I did try. Whatever the reason I think I may actually accomplish something from this list.
Another Final Fantasy game
I was going to name a specific one but it probably isn’t important to choose a specific one right now. I know I want to play 13 and the sequels, or perhaps finish 9 or maybe even play 8 or 7… and so on. For me I just hope I can find another Final Fantasy with characters I can fall in love with. Oh and see more Chocobos of course!
Everything about Kingdom Hearts makes it sound like something I would love. Disney characters, RPG and many hours of gaming to be had. Yet I still haven’t ventured in, partially due to the daunting nature of these games since there are so many. I just want to start and see how things go. If I love it then fantastic and if not then at least I have (finally) tried it for myself.
I picked this up well after release at some point last year and haven’t yet played it. This will be a great game to play this year for a few reasons, one being it will give my Switch some extra love. Additionally, and importantly, I haven’t played it yet. So I’m looking forward to meeting the new regional Pokémon and seeing what the adventure brings.
In an effort to show that I am not solely interested in long (J)RPGs, I thought I should mention one of the VR games I’m most excited to try. Moss has such an adorable main character, a mouse named Quill, and is meant to be a fun action-adventure puzzle game which has been on my to play list for a while. Since getting more regular use of the VR last year I’ve been meaning to start this up so hopefully this year I do. Also with a sequel in the works it is a good time to play this one!
I remember starting this years back but didn’t get too far (maybe around an hour or so) as I got distracted. However, it is a game that I keep thinking about so I am hoping I can make my way through the many puzzles and see how far I can get before resorting to lots of pen and paper drawings of puzzles.
Are there any specific games you hope to get off your backlog this year?
