    Games Finished:

  • Well that seems a bit overwhelming (although it looks like a lot of them are ps+ freebies). Good luck

  • Now which of those games are on your back burner?
    Meaning you have played it within the last couple months at least once.
    Example I have played Omega ruby but i have not touched it within a couple months so its off my back burner. and back to the backlog.

    Pretty long list you got there. When I get bored I make my own check list but it never gets past 26 games.

  • ignoring games that are super hard and those that I would say skip because they are not very good, There are a couple you should cross off.

    You have sam & max twice.
    I would mark jax trilogy for either PS3 or vita not both.
    Sportsfriends, it has no campaign and are just party games.
    Woah Dave has no campaign. it's purely an arcade experience.

  • Jesus, I get overwhelmed having just a few games on backlog. Good luck!

  • That is nothing OP. You don't know what real pain is yet. lol

    Notes on games to prioritize or let sink:

    Prioritize based on time:

    Shadow of the Colossus can also be done in a few quick semi long sessions. Ico on the other hand has some somewhat tricky puzzles here and there and it's easy to get stuck or not know what to do.

    Brothers a tale of two sons can be done pretty quick

    Tell tale games generally pretty satisfying and can be done in decent play session lengths:

    Jurassic Park (assuming it's the tell tale game) is pretty good, a bit action/QTE heavy though

    Sam and max expect the opposite, lots of puzzles

    Thomas was alone

    Sound shapes has a very quick campaign if you don't care to delve into DLC and making your own levels

    Prioritize based on quality: These games require a decent time investment, but nothing super insane per se:

    Deadly Premonition
    Broken Age
    Demons Souls
    Sherlock holmes
    Papa and yo
    Gravity rush
    Syndacate (on it's own merits it's not that bad)
    Last of us
    MGS HD collection
    Unfinished swan
    MGS Ground Zeroes
    Games to let sink:

    Luftrausers, Binding of Issac, Motorstorm RC, Hotline Miami, Blazblue Continuum shift, Towerfal ascension, spelunky, PvZ garden warfare, ollie ollie 2, geometry wars 2, flow, super meat boy

    These games are all pretty light on story in terms of narrative, and much more reliant on gameplay, the exceptions being Blazblue and PVZ which have later versions of the game out that make the previous versions unneeded.
