The Gaming Backlog Challenge: Week 1

Posted on July 4, 2010 by (@NE_Austin) in Features

Just pretend all the paper gets turned into video games by a witch or something.

Last week I got ahold of a really sweet shelf to store all of my video games on, and while my collection isn’t the biggest or best out there, I’d say that I’ve got a good amount of games. Here’s the problem with having a good amount of games: You don’t have time to play them all. Every single gamer has a backlog of games, some bigger than others, and I’m ashamed to say that my backlog is quite a hefty one. A little while back I read a post on GoNintendo talking about the administrator’s (Kevin Cassidy) massive backlog of games, and reading that post inspired me to finally take action in completing MY backlog. Along the way, I hope that you guys join me and work on your backlogs as well. If you do, e-mail me at [email protected] whenever you beat a game and I’ll be sure to post about it on the site! Include a story/explanation if you want, but no pressure. Anyway, onto MY backlog:

God of War

Viewtiful Joe

Call of Duty: Big Red One

Ratchet: Deadlocked

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams

Boom Blox

ExciteBots: Trick Racing

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas


Metal Gear Solid

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Dead Space: Extraction

Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

Little King’s Story

Star Wars: Rogue Leader

Resident Evil (GCN)

Super Mario World

Super Metroid

Sin and Punishment

The Challenge

A lot of games, am I right? So here’s my plan: Beat one of these games every week and write about my experience with it as motivation to keep plugging away. For all of you out there, it’s time for you to delve into your backlog as well. Join me in my quest to finish all of the games I own and write to me about them. Each week, every single person that tells me their finished game will get put up on the site to bask in their glory for a bit, and then move onto the next one. Who’s with me? Anyone?

This week’s game…
