Weekend Debate: What’s left on your current-gen bucket list? (update)

The Weekend Debate

UPDATE: Wow. Really busy debate this week! I dread to think how long the combined backlog on display here would take to wipe out. Anyway, without further ado, here are this week’s 10 lucky winners: Nightmare966, TVR-77, Golwar, toxic-inferno, DEKOWOLF, TheGlennsta, Zankes, XisTG, sjecollins and Elisq. Congratulations. Look out for a PM to your account on the official forums.

ORIGINAL STORY: So, by my count, we’ve got seven weeks left until PS4 arrives. Ready? I know I’m not. I’ve got an enormous PS3 backlog to plough through before my shiny new next-gen machine takes up residence beneath my TV. Rayman Legends, GTA5, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, BEYOND: Two Souls… the list goes on. And that’s before I even consider mopping up trophies on games I’ve already polished off. Quite frankly, it’s scary.

Your debate topic then: what do you still want to do on your PS3 before PS4 arrives?

What games have you got left to finish? Which Platinums do you need to pick up? Is there a title you’re waiting to play – say, Dark Souls 2 – before you dive into next gen? Let us know below.

As a reward for your efforts, I’m going to go and make that backlog even less manageable. I’ve got a super-limited edition media kit for BEYOND: Two Souls to offer to the 10 most entertaining and/or thoughtful responses, featuring a copy of the game, an animation cell and a lavish hardback art book in a deluxe sleeve. Best Weekend Debate giveaway ever? Best Weekend Debate giveaway ever. Good luck!

I Want To Capture The Beyond: Two Souls Story As A Live Playthrough For Youtube And Do It Afew Times!

I actually got round to playing The Puppeteer demo yesterday and I absolutely fell madly in love with it. Just made me sad to think that I’ve had Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed 4, and indeed a PS4, on pre-order for most of the year now, yet such an enjoyable and pleasant game like Puppeteer, which is refreshingly original to boot, totally fell under my radar.

Needless to say I’ve ordered it from Amazon for the absolute BARGAIN price of £25, and look forward to immersing myself in it until November 29th. It’s so nice to come away from the end of a console generation and feel so pleasingly enamoured with an orginal, rejuvenating experience amongst all the other hard-hitters like Last of Us and GTA V. Can’t wait to see what the PS4 has six years down the line :)

7

I’d like to say Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD, but they’re last-generation games and I’m not sure they’ll be available to play before the PS4 launches!

Since I can’t afford a PS4, I’ll probably be catching up on the games I have missed such as Tomb Raider, Heavy Rain and Rayman Legends. I’m also hoping that the excellent Playstation Plus will continue to provide great titles to keep me busy for a while.

Infamous 2
Resistance 3
Killzone Mercenary
GTA Online
Need for Speed Most Wanted
Okami HD
Batman Arkham City

I don’t think I have enough time….

I can’t wait to pick up Remember Me and Metal Gear Solid: Rising when they come out on PS+ for a start. Then there’s Beyond: Two Souls, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII (when it comes out), Rain and Grand Theft Auto V still to play.

Because of all these, it’s looking like it might be a while before I can justify getting a PS4 and in some ways, there’s nothing worse than having a backlog of films/books/games to get into as you can never find the time. I also figure that there will be a great selection to choose from by the time I do get round to the PS4, upon which time the backlog will start all over again! :D

I’ve got quite a lot on my list. But Dishonored stands out. I hear wonderfull things about it, even now with the release of the GOTY, but although I have my copy for months now I never got around playing it. It was a matter of finding the right time to dive in, as I can imagine it’s quite an immersive game, but other titles or (worse) work always filled my planning…

I’m picking up a PS4 on launch, so I’m not sure I will get around to Dishonored before that now the holiday season craze has started with a musthave every two weeks or so. But it’s not that my PS3 goes in a box when the PS4 arrives. As I’m moving together with my girlfriend coming december, the plan is to use the PS3 in the living room as casual gaming machine and blu ray player, while the PS4 takes up the game room spot. I’m sure Dishonored will see some action eventually.

That said, isn’t Beyond quite the ideal game to play with your girlfriend in a newly furbished living room?

Just Batman Arkham Origins for me then on to ps4

13

For me im now done. Beyond:Two Souls is the last game i will have bought of this Generation and for my PS3. Giving me three final games to finish before the PS4 is finally released. Beyond, Puppeteer and ofc GTAV which has just sucked up any free gaming time that i have.

Roll on the PS4 now though. Killzone, AC4, Watch Dogs, Theif and all the Indie games my wallet can stretch for.

14

Too many to count , I have over 20 Unplayed games and 20 unfinished , i will never be able to catch up with my backlog :(

Well, first of all – thanks to PS+, playing all games that I didn’t have time for earlier is so much easier : )

But I don’t really have a problem with switching to PS4, because, well, I’m not getting rid of my PS3. I still want to play new God of War and Beyond (hatters gonna hat, I love David Cage :P), and Dark Souls 2 next year and new Castlevania. Lots of titles. Oh, god, and Ni No Kuni! I hope it will land in PS+ some time next year.

So many games, now just to find the time…

Even with my PS4 pre-ordered theres no way im done with PS3, i have a ridiculous amount of games still to play, like Puppeteer, BEYOND, Dark souls 2, batman origins…etc. I think i have about 70 games still factory sealed to be played.
Oh and btw, how would we leave PS3 when we keep getting amazing free games on PSPLUS every month? I think i have about 20 games i still need to play that i got FREE on PSPLUS.

So yeah, PS3 will look great right next to its younger brother PS4. Its not going anywhere soon!

17

Heh, that’s funny.. Recently I was just saying to my mom, after having finished Beyond, that this was the last real good game that released for me on ps3..
Now it’ll be a painful wait for ps4 although I imagine GTA online will help me through. As for backlog, All stars and LBP karting really deserve some more of my attention, and Bioshock infiniten Hitman and God of war Ascension a second playthrough. Still have to finish Sly cooper and most of Dead space 3 too. And a whole bunch of the PS2 collections I still have to start, but that’s mostly for nostalgia so no rush..

I want to take my PS3 and Vita and bash with them the head of the russian department’s director. Because of that bastard Sony support in Russia is even worse now than in New Zealand, and since we don’t get about half the games anyway, guess I’ll go with Xbox One next time.

I’m actually waiting on my copy of beyond two souls to arrive (probably Monday) and its really hard to avoid all the spoiler images on every game site :(

So, in conclusion I don’t need to win but I do need some sort of router add on that filters out anything with the word beyond in it :P

Is a total bucket list game for me – killzone bundle ps4 preordered baby

After near-enough finishing GTA V, it’s all about Rayman Legends. I hope the franchise continues onto next-gen consoles!

21

Oh yea and still gotta get Rain and Puppeteer..

22

Oh, that’s a long list, let’s see… Since I got my (first) PS3 in 2008, and I didn’t/don’t have much money, over the years there are MANY games I’ve not been able to complete yet, and some I just got. So, as of today, I’ve still to touch (in full game form, because demos are GOOD!)…

-Ratchet and Clank Future (with the exception of QftB).
-Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (good timing on releasing the Collection? Perhaps).
-Rayman Legends
-Puppeteer.

Then the yet to come list (and surely to grow)…:
-Lords of Shadow 2
-AC Liberation HD
-Batman: Arkham Origins (although this one’s fully pre-ordered).

With, if able, Heavy Rain and Beyond. And ACIV being an undecided one.

And that’s because among sales and re-releases I’ve been able to grab this 2013:
-Batman: Arkham Asylum
-Bayonetta
-Devil May Cry 4 (This was a pending one ever since 2008)

And I’m thankful I was able to do. Thankfully I’ve been able to get all my other titles in time one way or another.

Of course I’m not counting PS Plus here. That’s another whole thing :P

Batman Arkham Origins has me really excited. New developers, new voice actors and a different villains. Batman has proved himself to be be of the most badass characters in any universe, ever, and experiencing that again is making me drool.

Beyond: Two Souls also looks intriguing. Heavy Rain was such an awesome and unique game, so that is enough of a reason for me to want BTS.

The other titles I still haven’t played that I want to is GOW: Ascension and MGR: Revengeance. Luckily, MGR sorted itself out with ps+ (thanks!), but GOW I have yet to pick up.

I’ve got the PS+ games to try and finish. But as we know that is impossible as new games gets added all the time ;). But I will try to finish Far Cry 3. But as of right now I will be saving my money for PS4 games(still buying psvita games doh)but I think I can survive with PS+.I mean the list just grew with Remember ME and Metal Gear Revengece.

A bucket list for PS3. I really don’t have one; not only because of the (frankly brilliant) PS+ service which has seen my game collection double, or even treble in size – most of which are sat there saying “Daddddyyyyy, play me” – but there are so many quality games coming out soon that I just absolutely NEED to buy/download/play – not least of all Arkham Origins and Arkham Origins: Blackgate, Beyond: Two Souls, and eventually Metal Gear Solid V!!

But if there is (TWO) games that are out currently that I feel I owe it to myself to play, it’s easily “Unfinished Swan” and “Journey”.

I’ve not got around to buying them yet (I will, I promise!) but I am so excited to load them up, and see the beauty and imagination come alive right in front of my eyes. The amount of good things I’ve heard about both games, coupled with the few gameplay clips I’ve watched, make my mouth drool at the prospect.

If they were sugar coated donuts, I’d eat them.

I have to pretend to be BATMAN in Batman: Arkham Origins. Gotta get V stars as many times as possible in GTA V. Have to continue playing The Last Of Us. Gran Turismo is coming up as well as many more! 7 weeks til I get my PS4, I don’t know how I will find time to play all of these games and socialize, but who needs friends when you have PlayStation!

Ow lord, like almost all people here I’d say I have way too many games left to still play-.- It’s all because of that bastard ‘Real Life’ with all it’s responsibilities and that nonsense!
I have a massive amount of ps plus games left and then: Last of Us, Tomb Raider, Dead Island, Cross Edge, Final Fantasy X-2 and some games I bought on psn and haven’t even got around to playing.

Best thing about the backlog is that it has an educational purpose for me! Recently moved from the NL to Finland and there’s a lot of games with Finnish subtitles (makes me replay Uncharted and Sly Cooper regularly). Thanks Sony!!!

P.s. I have also been diagnosed with 100%endites, so clearing my backlog will really take forever ;O (you won’t hear me complain though:))

for me its the last of us.

i have had it sitting since the month after it came out and due to the kids i have just not had the time to immerse myself in it the way i think it deserves, i seem to be getting more time to game so i should hopefully make a start on it soon.

i was going to say gta but im actually going to put that on the backburner for a while due to the fact my ps4 will have watch dogs so i dont want to burn myself out on that style of game.

however i will be happy to make beyond my last platinum before the ps4 launches ;)

I have to get the 3 remaning FarCry3 co-op trophies to get a platinum then finish The Last of us on hard mode, uncharted 2 on hard and crushing, BioShock on the hardest mode and maybe finish the two games my friend gave me to play. Watchdogs looks dope so maybe *fingers crossed* I will buy it. That’s all for this year

My current gen bucket list has a few items on the list, mainly get one last Platinum to round my count up to 30 to give myself a good launch into the PS4 era. There are many PS+ games that I wish to complete as well such as Stealth Inc.

But alas, PS3 will live on for some time after PS4’s arrival so we all have plenty of time to get our lists fully checked off and sorted even after we are busy playing Driveclub :)

Only have kingdom hearts 1.5 to complete (let’s not talk about the amount of games from ps+) but since I’m getting an xbox one next gen I will have kingdom hearts as my last platinum

I dont have a bucket list of games to complete, its more a skip list many due to PS+ but at least my dark winter nights are sorted

My current gen game takes me all the way back to the last gen! Final Fantasy X is a game which I never got around to play on PS2. So a few years a go I thought I would try and finish it but the HD collection was shown off! So I waited, and waited and waited. But it will be worth it! So 2 generation later and I might tick this one off the bucket list! :D

Just sold everything, ps3, all the call of duty games from CoD 4 modern warfare to black ops 2, all the extras that PlayStation brought out for the 3. Total of 15 games. Give up on the gaming larck. Need a lot of convincing to get me back.
I’d say my bucket list needs style,power and a lot of games. But hey that’ll never happen. ;)

At the moment playing Splinter Cell Blacklist…

infamous 2
Mass Effect 3
Metal Gear Rising
DmC
Dead Space 3
Crysis 3

There’s about 10 more in the pile too :)

The list of things I need to do before the PS4 is getting ever bigger, I have an insane backlog of games that simply won’t go away, some of them older than others. I’m yet to play any of the Bioshock franchise, despite being recommended by so many, and not forgetting the fact I’ve got Bioshock 2 installed on my HDD. I also want to finally get around to buying and playing Heavy Rain, and hopefully Beyond if I can scrape enough money together. I am also ashamed to say that I’ve yet to play MGS4, which I may have to do taking next months PS+ games into account.
On top of that, I’ve got a huge list of games I’m half way through and would love to get round to finishing. Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, Borderlands 2 and Dragons Dogma to name just a few.
Finally, as a bit of a trophy hoarder, there are a selection of great games I’d just love to get the platinum trophy for, The Last of Us, GTAV and Uncharted 3 should I ever get the chance.

Added to this the time I’ll spend on the ever growing array of Vita games, and remembering that I’ve not even started the addictive looking GTA Online yet, I’m starting to give up hope that I’ll ever check every box on my list, and may have to simply start a fresh at Christmas time.

Probably want to play some of the #PS3 classics such as God of War 3 and GTA 4/5 as well as Heavy Rain, also to fill my trophies and develop more in higher difficulties

This November I’ll have the most important exam in my life and I’ve been studying for it since December (yes, you read that right).One of the biggest sacrificies I had to make was spending a little time a part from my beloved ps3 :'( Having to skip some of the biggest games of this generation has been killing me like you wouldn’t believe! So, what’s on the top of my to-do list for December: saying farewell to my good old friend, the ps3!
First I’ll go on vacations to Los Santos, see what kind of risky endeavours those 3 tough guys are getting into and explore everything, from the deep oceans to the tall mountains (creating some mayhem along the ride). Then I want to see if I have what it takes to be The Last of Us and fight all the evil fungus the genius minds at Naughty Dog throw at me! (And the only thing I love/hate more than zombies are fungus!) I’ll need to relax and catch my breath after, and what better way to do it than to lose myself in the life journey of Jodie and Aiden (...

If I have the time I’ll use my skyhook to travel trough the skies of Columbia, getting back on my couch just in time for the arrival of my brand new PS4!

I have no idea why I haven’t got round to playing uncharted 3 as I brought it new and it’s still waiting. I guess it’s because I don’t want it to end or know it will be amazing. Other games are infamous, and spec ops the line, which I’ve heard has a great plot

My backlog is mostly awesome PSPlus games!
I’m currently working on Far Cry 3, Catherine and Dragon’s Dogma DA.

I have Dark Souls II Collector’s Edition preordered as well as the Dark Souls Design Works due next month for my birthday! I thought DaSII would be my last PS3 game but now that Drakengard 3 has been announced for the West, that will probably be my last PS3 game, God rest it’s poor 500GBHD!

As for platinums, I don’t actively go for them unless I’ve finished a game and have enjoyed it enough and am close enough to get it. I’m currently working on the Zone of the Enders HD Collection… think I may be able to bring home the plat for that!
I also only need a quick run through Dishonored for the platinum and with the new GotY edition announced I’ll probably do that soon!

I have still to play(& want to 100% complete them to) – Every PS1 game & every PS2 game & every PS3 game before the PS4 comes out next month…ONLY JOKING!!! :D :D :D
My real game list is(left to play for me) – Beyond + TLoU(Yep i am ashamed to say it i still not got it yet) + GT5 + R&C:N + Batman:AO. But i am not going to rush them & still play my PS3 & future PS4 side by side erm no at the same time tho :D THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS;)

Oh man… to my shame, my backlog stretches back to the three titles I got in the Day 1 bundle with my 60GB PS3 – Genji, Resistance and Motorstorm. I got close on Genji and Motorstorm before considering them “done”, i.e. I had shinier games to consign to my backlog, like Heavenly Sword, Fallout 3, Red Dead Redemption, GTA IV, Uncharted 2&3, Heavy Rain, Assassin’s Creed 3… I have completed some games, really I have. Book of Spells counts right?
I am planning something of an overlap, PS4 is on pre-order and will be target platform for Watch_Dogs and AC4, but I do intend to keep gaming on the PS3, and get through those already mentioned along with Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, The Last of Us. Really the list is too long for me to consider stretching to getting Platinum on anything, unless by accident rather than design.

Bucket lists for this gen? Well here’s what I still have left…

– Sky dive (GTA V)
– Expand my horizons (Journey)
– Go on safari (Far Cry 3)
– Find true love (Catherine)
– Experience zero gravity (Dead Space 3)
– Travel to Japan (Yakuza 4)
– Learn to drive (GT6)
– Look down on the world from above the clouds (Bioshock Infinite)
– …Give blood (Castlevania)

With me buying myself a few joblots of ps3 games on ebay in the past aswell as being a playstation plus subscriber, my list of games had got to the point of “when am I ever going to be able to play these”. Add to that the annual titles of call of duty and fifa, there just didn’t seem enough hours in the day to play them.

Luckily, or unluckily, however you may view it, my plus subscription ran out this month, so my list of games to play has decreased dramatically.

I’m currently working towards the platinum of Uncharted 3. After that i’m going to play what people may view as it’s predecessor in Tomb Raider Underworld. Fallout 3 is another title i’m looking forward to playing. Unfortunately due to this backlog of games, i’ve stopped myself from buying much anticipated titles such as GTA V, or The Last Of Us.

I’m most likely going to hold off getting a PS4 until christmas, so that then gives me enough time to finish the above games. Wish me luck!

45

100% GTA V so i can see these UFO’s for myself and hopefully figure out the mystery of Mount Chillard. I know the online portion of this game has been rocky but the amount that is in the main game keeps calling me back.
Oh and complete Beyond Two Souls got it today and been on it for hours such and amazing game why it got such mixed reviews messes my head up for people that have listened and cancelled because of the low scoring reviews i suggest playing it yourself you wont be dissapointed what an amazing game to finish off this generation. I would love even though i have got to win this comp as the stuff i would keep but the game i would give to a family member who has turned his nose up after reading reviews *silly man* for an xmas present that way he will have to play it.

I still need to pick up The Last of Us and Soul Sacrifice! But everytime I am about to buy it something interesting pops up on PS Plus! I’m engrossed in Dragon’s Dogma at the minute do won’t be getting around to purchasing them yet and now Metal Gear Rising has been announced! I’m never going to get to play these games with PS Plus being this good!

Admittedly there’s a lot, you know the usual annual Q4 AAA games, huge backlogs and getting those shiny platinums, I want them all but this fall I’m prioritising the PS4 and hoping for ports of the big Q4 PS3 games, if not I can always go back sometime in the new year and pick them up.

The last PS3 game I plan on buying is Rachet and Clank: Nexus. I love those games and I feel like Insomniac have had a bit of a bad year so I’m giving them all my support even if they are making an exclusive title for the darkside :P.

Until then it’s getting through/platinuming my backlog (aka PS+ :)) and playing all those wonderful indie titles on the Vita.

Ah, massive backlog but will probably go for platinum on Beyond, and Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD.
I still have some older Classics to get through Ico and Shadow of the Colossus have been on my list for years hopefully with the help of remote play I can get through them.
I am also looking forward to finishing the Wonderbook games with my son. My ps3 has definately earnt its place in the living room.
I am going to be holding on to my ps3 for sometime at the very least to clear my ps plus backlog. Oh and I still need to play mgs4 with trophies! Oh and I’m missing one platinum from Uncharted series.
If I wasn’t so excited for ps4 I could probably wait another year at least with just ps3 and vita.

What I need to do is play through all my old favourite games. Uncharted, heavy rain, the last of us, the list goes on. I need to do this because I may not play some of the ever again, or at least bit for a long time. I’m not fussed about getting every single trophy in every game, I just want to experience them all again. The stories. The gameplay. The countless hours of fun I’ve had since I opened it up on Christmas morning 6 years ago.

I also need to play Beyond: Two Souls. One last amazing game seems fitting.

I have SO much on my PS3 bucket list it’s not even funny; Beyond, Bioshock Infinite, Disgaea D2, DmC, Kingdom Hearts HD, LA Noire, Max Payne 3, Ni no Kuni, Portal 2, Puppeteer, Resistance 2, Resistance 3, Splinter Cell Blacklist… not to mention all the PS+ games I keep downloading and the stuff that’s yet to come out.

As excited as I am for PS4 – and believe me, I am more than a little bit excited – it’s going to have to wait a good long while. There’s no way I’m jumping on board the next gen without fully exhausting the brilliant games of this gen first.

Oh, the list is long. I tried to last summer and the summer before, to “aggressively” play through most of the games that I have, but games take time and I want to enjoy them also, and therefore while the list has become shorter, there’s still lots of games that I’ve bought that I haven’t even gotten around to unpacking… And then there’s all the games that I’ve gotten through PS+, which some of I’ve played, but really I don’t have enough time to complete all of them.

I haven’t even bought GTA5, because I hope they’ll release it for next-gen (eventually, and if not I doubt I will play it sadly) so that I can start fresh there. When PS4 is released I think I’ll have a hard time going back to PS3 titles, at least when I already have Watch_Dogs, AC4 and Knack pre-ordered and confirmed to be released with the PS4 order.

52

I’m converting from XBox to the PS4 this year and haven’t owned a Playstation before so I decided to pick up a PS3 in the meantime and check out all the exclusive titles I’d missed out on.
Since E3 I’ve made my way through Ni no Kuni, The Last of Us, Uncharted 1-3, Heavy Rain, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Spec Ops: The Line, Puppeteer and Rain.
Beyond: Two Souls arrived today and I’m still playing Okami and Demon’s Souls on and off due to their length.
I’ll be checking out Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance and Remember Me before the PS4 hits and maybe Far Cry 3 as well from the Instant Games Collection (Which has been so worth it!) :P
Then there’s also Tearaway a week before the PS4 is out, which looks amazing.

53

As I have no intention of discarding my PS3 when my Ps4 arrives, (Yes, I’m looking at you, DS II) I guess the answer only spans the coming next month or two.
Until then, I have two goals:
1. Finishing my AC3 (re)playthough, which will tie in nicely with the AC4 release on the PS4, and which I keep track of on the Dutch OPC Forum: http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Action-Adventure-Algemene/Re-Play-Assassin-s-Creed-III/m-p/19806787#M8039
2. Support as many Indie-game developers when they release their games on PSN, by tweeting about them (@boersc), reviewing their games, and any other way I can help.

Of course I will keep doing that after the PS4 arrives, but it is something I gladly spend a lot of time on until then.

Regarding the pile of shame: the way I view my game collection has seriously changed since the PS Plus IGC. For me, it’s ‘just’ a collection of games I have, and whenever I want to play a game, I have them at my disposal to choose from. I have succumbed to the fact...

I have succumbed to the fact that I will never, ever be able to play them all. That gives me the ease of mind to actually enjoy the games without feeling guilty of not playing everything.

I dont wanna miss out on all the big titles ps plus brings to the ps3. Metal gear revenagance and remember me next month, along with dragons dogma and far cry 3. Just wow ps plus is one of the best services ever.

I pretty much dread to think just how many PS3 games I’ve actually still got to start let alone finish! Thanks to an ever growing backlog from Plus, and the inevitable temptation to keep starting the new titles each month, I’ve yet to finish many of the disc based games I own including big hitters such as Uncharted 3 and God of War Ascension. In fact i was so behind until recently that I’ve only just finished inFamous 1 & 2! Along with brilliant titles like New Little Kings Story on Vita that I’m currently playing through then I’ve definitely got more than enough to keep me going for the next 7 weeks!! I’m thinking of taking up power sleeping for the odd hour or so, becoming a recluse and spending as much time gaming as possible until PS4 launch day in the hope of catching up at least slightly :D

Since I have been a completionist from my first games, dating back to the mid eighties, I have missed out on some great games due to the fact I don’t have time to play them all before new and more exciting games came out. Since I just got my PS3 two years ago I had a gigantic library of games to choose from. I have managed to complete about 30 games in that time. But getting a Vita a year ago made the list grow again.
The games I surely will start and finish on the PS3 before moving on are: The Last Of Us, Heavy Rain, LA Noire, Remember Me, FF X, Uncharted 1 and the XCom expansion.
These are the games I really want to finish before the next generation. I reckon it’s atleast 400h gametime to complete these.
Then it’s onto the PS4, starting with Killzone 4.

57

To be honest, there’s nothing I want to play on the Ps3 now. I’ve never really wanted to collect platinum trophies, as it takes too much time and effort for me to do that. And I’m crossing my fingers that GTA V will arrive on the Ps4, so I’ve not bought it and avoided anything relating to GTA just in case.

Beyond and Batman AO were the most likely to get me playing on the Ps3 again; but I’ve not really been impressed with what I’ve saw by either of them. Batman just looks like more of the same, and I’ve also got a poor-mans Ps3 controller with no sixaxis built in, as I discovered on the train section in the Beyond demo when I was shaking the controller like an idiot and couldn’t go any further. So I’ll probably pass on those two, but I think the next game I’ll be playing will probably be Assassin’s Creed 4 when I get the Ps4 on the 29th of next month. Can’t wait.

Christ where do i start? If i was to try and complete all the games in my collection that i’m still to finish and do some trophy earning while i’m at it, id be playing my PS3 well into the new year possibly next spring and further depending on how busy i am, I’m gonna reel of several of the “must finish” titles. GTA-V, The Last Of Us, God of War:Acension, Assassins Creed3, Max Pain3, FarCry 3, Diablo, Need4Speed:MW, Bioshock:infinite,Mass Effect 3, DMC, Beyond. Then there are several lesser titles and plenty of awesome PSN/INDIE games such as Rain, Hell Yeah WDR,Limbo, Shank 2, joe danger the list goes on and on for me. But im glad you asked this cause its made me realise there’s no rush! i’m keeping my beautiful PS3 for the next couple of years at least, there’s plenty of room for both my ps3/ps4/Vita. So i’m going to look at my backlog as a good thing it gives me plenty of great games to play and lots and lots of fun to be had. Cheers Playstation for many great years of gaming and...

There’s many games on my bucket list: I want to try out Dishonored, Ni No Kuni, Tales of Xillia, Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3, Crysis 3, Puppeteer, Tomb Raider, Hyperdimension, Neptuia and Mugen Souls.

I also want to get a Platinum on Killzone 2. The trophies in this game are so hard, which makes it more challenging.

savageamusement 11 October, 2013 @ 18:27

I have ALOT of games on my to-do list still with more being added before I get my PS4.
If I had to choose, top of the list would have to be Hannah Montana the movie – alot of people have this on their trophy list so it must be a good game right? RIGHT!?!

61

I just got Beyond two souls today so will need to try get the platinum before the end of October as there is a competition for getting the platinum before then which is advertised on Facebook.

I also want to get Ratchet and clank Nexus and the platinum before PS4 is even released. I wished I could got the platinum for Kingdom Hearts final mix and chain of memories but sadly it must be done in 2014 due to being quite time consuming. If there is time left over, will surely need to play through the new PS+ games as quickly as possible before moving onto Ratchet and Clank Nexus.

It’s a real shame Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD won’t be released before PS4 as that would been a great game to have played but will get it whenever it does get released.

So for now, roll on Beyond Two souls!

Despite being fortunate enough to be getting a launch day PS4, PS3 (and PS2 via HD Remasters) still have a lot to offer me.

I’ve just got my hands on Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix and already have 2014 pre-orders for Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII paid off!

In fact, I’ve just upgraded to a swish red superslim model. It makes bringing SingStar to parties much easier.

PS3, enabling awful Sinitta impersonations in our household since 2009.

63

My list is so big I’m starting to worry about the eventual PS4 backlog. Not only that but PS+ is just making things worse. It’s gotten to the point where I’ve stopped buying games and instead when anybody asks what they should get me for Christmas or a birthday I hand them a printout. This and the plus updates means there’s a pile of discs forming that will hopefully get attacked when I finish jak 3 this weekend(fingers crossed). I’ve even given up on platinuming games and dare I say it…haven’t bought GTA V yet.

I’d like to play (and play again) many games on my good old PS3 before PS4 arrives, but there isn’t much time…so for these 7 weeks I’ve chosen just 2 games which are quite meaningful to me:

– “Metal Gear Solid 4”: I’m gonna replay this since this was THE GAME I bought the PS3 for, and it didn’t disappoint me at all…I played many other unforgettable games on PS3, but this is still one of the highlights of the generation for me. Besides, MGS4’s wonderfully gloomy atmosphere is well-suited to my feelings now that once again I’m approaching the farewell to another Playstation generation.

– “Ratchet & Clank: Nexus”: I discovered the Ratchet & Clank series with the PS3 and I absolutely loved it! “Tools of Destruction” was my first PS3 game (with the best use of the Sixaxis features, in my opinion, by the way) so I think that the new Ratchet & Clank it’s the right game for me to played just before PS4’s release.

I’ll catch up on the much older games of PS3 such as MGS4: Guns of the Patriot, God of War HD, Killzone HD, ICO, Shadow of Colossus and Final Fantasy X/X-2. All these games were released when I was too young (on PS2) so I look forward to playing these classics which are unavailable on any other platform including PS4 (for the moment).

Also GT6 :). There’s no way PS4 is getting a look in until GT6 has been experienced.

Ive still got a lot of love for my ps3. I still play bf3/bo2. On disc ghostbusters, castlevania, sly 4,toy story mania, metro last light, knights contract, blur, marvel ultimate alliance 2,dynasty warriors, killzone trilogy + more, currently playing army of 2 devils cartel and working towards platinum. On my hard drive OMG, all my plus games, last of us, ratchet gladiator, dragons crown and orochi warriors 3. On my vita it doesnt get any lighter. All the plus games, playing KZ mercenary + have everybodys golf and reality fighters. Would like walking dead tho as played on ps3. Usually once I finish a game I sell on unless its a special edition or 1 I really like to fund new ones. Bf4 and beyond 2 souls on my radar and currently bidding on force unleashed sith edition . Now MGR and remember me!!!! SOB cry SOB

67

Theres a backlog here sure, commented on it earlier….but as far as it being the dying gasps of current gen – far from it.

The Plus service will continue, only Forza 5 could eclipse GT6, I’ll still be working my way through season play in Forza 4 with a wheel and still adding to my PC library. Current gen specific gaming communities aren’t suddenly going to disappear and to be honest some of the best gaming I’ve had over the past 6 months has been old HD remakes of last gen titles, Okami HD, Hitman Trilogy etc.

I put Portal 2 into my PS3 on a whim the other day, a game which I’ve already platinumed – it’s still jaw dropping. I don’t see a comparative title coming to next gen anytime soon.

Too many titles to list on the shelves of unplayed shame but the glaring one is most likely Ni No Kuni, huge Ghibli fan here and everything that Level 5 did on PS2 was classic so I should be putting time into it but its literally been out of the wrapper, installed then put back in the case.

So much too finish… I am probaly not going to able finish every game, but I am going to finish the upcoming Ratchet and Clank game, but before that I got puppeteer, uncharted 3 and Kingdom Hearts 1.5 too finish. So about that “littel” prize for best comment, it would just make my life more difficualt… :P

69

Current-Gen bucket list! This parties going to last forever maaaan!

My list of shame is a list without end I’m afraid, I suffer from the common but fatal working parent syndrome: symptoms include, no free time, no spare cash and the inability to finish the last of us! I haven’t been able to go on Reddit for months to avoid spoilers! And I love Reddit!

With that aside however it’s hard to think of the Ps3 drawing to a close when there is still so much I’m looking forward to. As a self proclaimed Dark Souls die hard I’m almost wetting myself in anticipation for Dark Souls 2, and Battlefield 4 needs me!

I’ve still not finished Ni No Kuni and I know I’m going to end up buying Kingdom Hearts HD. My Wife doesn’t play much video games but fun fact, she once beat Leon at the start of Kingdom Hearts 1, you know the fight you’re meant to lose. It was that very day I proposed.

My PS3 backlog is Beyond Two Souls (which I don’t have) lol and The Last Of Us (don’t have it either), and GTA V (which I still need to finish), not counting Online ;L Now I only have a month haha, the PS4 will take up my time, but I want to try to complete a few PS3 games aswell :)

in the terms and conditions it says this promotion started on the 4th and ended on the 7th, today is the 11th…..

anywhoo…. my backlist comprises of all those ps plus games, because of titles like uncharted 3 and masseffect 3, ive gone and bought the previous games in those series to play before i play these. cant wait thou :)

I still need to plat Hannah Montana

I’m weird and thus I kept the best games for the last. Like Red Dead Redemption. For 3 years that game has been waiting for my attention. And I doubt that it would be smart to start playing right now. At the end it might catch all my attention and I’d forget about the PS4!

And there are several more gems. Ni No Kuni, 3 God of War games, The Walking Dead, for example.
All with no chance that I might play them today. Or tomorrow. Or in November. And probably not in 2013 at all.

But as I have not the slightest intention to abandon the PS3 completely, that isn’t a real problem. I see it as a gift that the console that brought me back to console gaming, will still have the very best waiting for me. <3

74

Thanks to PS+ my backlog is huge!

Although I have a PS4 on preorder, the games on this gen I would like to get out of the way are Far Cry 3, Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider and Dishonored. On my Vita i would have to say Gravity Rush, Ragnarok Odyssey and Sly Cooper Thieves in Time….

…and I still want to pick up The Last of Us!!

Too many games and not enough time!

Now when I’m thinking of it, I actually have a lot left. And its growing with all the great games from Plus. Well, I have a lot to do in the Jak and Daxter trilogy, im done with the first with about 75 % and are really trying to get platina even if its a pain in the ass findig all the orbs, flies and completing some hard minigames to get powercells. I’m going to try get platina for the others too.

Then I have Splinter Cell Blacklist which is really fun but pretty hard getting the platina so I’ll skip it.

GTA V is going to take me forever completing it with all the dristacting and fun side minigames. GTA Online are also keeping me away from the storymode because I just cant stand away from messing with my friends and other players! The story is also so long too! (I think).

In the Metal Gear Solid HD trilogy have I just completed the tough, hard and really fun first two games, Metal Gear 1 & 2. So now can I finally start with MGS 3! My brother and me are also soon done with completing...

My brother and me are also soon done with completing MGS: PW. After MGS 3 will I also replay MGS 4, right in time for MGS V. Hopefully. And i’m NOT going for the platina! Too freaking hard!

Now I got reminded that I havent completed Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 yet. And I got it back in april! God, I totally forgot about that game! It wasn’t as good as I expected but I’m definitely going to play it through.

And then I have my growing Plus list… I have downloaded Payday, Jak and Daxter trilogy, Spec ops: The Line and Stealth Inc. I am going to download Dragons Dogama, “that princess and dragon thing”, LBP Karting, Uncharted 3, Xcom and for the next month: Metal Gear Rising and Remember Me. This is going to take looong time to finnish all of them!

I have also two platinas that im hunting for games that I already have completed. The first is for Far Cry 3, it’s much easier then I thought from the beginning, almost too easy for a game like that. I have like six trophies left. The other game is Sly 4. much harder then Far Cry and Sly 1-3 where I got platina too.

At last, I have some games that I want to pick up left for PS3. First I will get Ratchet & Clank: Nexus. I just cant wait for it! They are finally doing an original R&C. Then im going to buy AC4. And then you maybe wonder why I’m not getting it for PS4. It just doesn’t feel next gen for me. No big changes from AC3 and almost the same graphics. Finally. I also want to get BEYOND: Two Souls, thats why im here! ;)

And thats my huge backlog. I never expected it to be so long! I really wont do it all until PS4 but thats no big deal for me. But its still going to take a long time!

Whenever I think about that I don’t even know if I should be happy or sob uncontrollably!

There’s so much I still want and can do with my PS3, and that’s amazing! I still haven’t played the Last of Us, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it; I’ve been dying to play Catherine and a few others, but life didn’t allow me to yet; on top of that, there will be great games, like GT6, still coming out in the future.

On the other hand, I know some of the things I’d really like to play will eventually be left behind. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll ever have the time to completely go through my PS3 backlog, not unless I just skip next-gen entirely – which, by the looks of Killzone SF and inFamous SS, would be stupid.

Ha, life! Always so dichotomic.

It has to be Dark Souls 2

Lodran is waiting for me, waiting for me to take those first tentative steps out of the darkness, peer around as my eyes get used to the new light. Feeling the optimism that I’ve found a safe haven, somewhere I can relax for 30 seconds and regain my composure. From the corner of my eye I can see the unmistakeable outline of a bonfire. Desperate to rest and hit a checkpoint and save my journey, I break into a run, striding across the damp flagstones. Respite and safety are within tasting difference when I find myself pierced by the sword of a hollowed soldier. As I fall to my knees, my vision darkening, I shed a single tear as the words “You Died” fills my vision. Then silence. Deafening silence.

Light surrounds my vision and I appear at a bonfire, far away from where my body fell and all I hear is the sound of my wife laughing maniacally because once again, I Died…

Sorry, had a bit of a moment there

80

Ratchet Gladiator! Oh wait still havent got my code….

I think my last current generation game that I will buy new will be Ratchet and Clank Into the Nexus (Nexus in Europe), as I’ve been a fan of the series since the first one in 2002, Good Times!, and I’ve really been looking forward to a story to continue the adventure from A Crack in Time (Personal favourite current gen game).

However, after that, anything that goes free on Playstation Plus, and The Last of Us, I was going to get it when it came out, but Okami HD went on sale, even more Good Times!

82

I F.e.a.r (3) my backlog is Borderlands (2) on the Infinite (Bioshock), I will be most Dishonored if I do not solve this Crysis (3) before my next Payday (2) as there will be no (Red Dead) Redemption for me.
PS+ is a (Shadow of the) Colossus problem but I must not (the) Cave in, Dead or Alive (5) I must complete my Mass (effect 3) backlog and let Sleeping Dogs lie.

Things to do before PS4? Get a job so that I can actually AFFORD a PS4 :P

OH! You mean on the PS3? Well, I’ve got quite a list… There are still a number of platinums I want to pick up: Arkham Asylum, Uncharted, Resistance 3, The Last of Us, Fallout 3… the list goes on and on. And on. And on. As for games I still want to play… the massive GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption are still lingering on my hard-drive, unfinished, as well as Ico, SotC, God of War HD, Far Cry 3, and countless others that I still have to play from PS Plus.

The thing is, I could list countless games that I still want to play from this generation, but the truth is that a list alone could never properly prepare me for a PS4. You see, the one thing I want to on my PS3 before getting a PS4 is to properly enjoy its last few months of life. It sounds corny, but the current generation is the generation that really got me into gaming in a big way, and as we approach the eve of the PlayStation 4, the thing I really want to d...

So many great memories. Thank you, PlayStation.

Where to start, I have 134 disk games, another 300+ PSN games & that’s excluding my Vita collection to tackle before the release of the PS4 next month. I’m obviously not going to succeed.

However the first game I will be buying for my PS4 isn’t out until Feb 2014 (Yakuza Ishin), so that leaves me a few extra months to appear to be doing something about my backlog. If only for appearance sake (I’m still playing FFXIV:ARR which leaves little room for anything else).

Main problem I have with my backlog, is being completely overwhelmed by it. I look at my games only to be faced with indecision & confusion and within that confusion I then go online & buy yet another game because that’s the one I want to play (the one I don’t have over the other numerous ones at one time I needed more than the ones I already owned). It’s a strange paradox- I buy games to play games but the games don’t get played because I’m too busy buying other games that I think I want to play more. The last thing I pr...

The last thing I probably need is another game, oddly its this thought that just stopped me from buying a JP import of OPPW2 for the vita…even as I just started to convince myself, oh your vita backlog isn’t that large -_-

Well my plan is to keep the PS3 and let my son complete the games that I cannot :-) (this will save time keeping him topped up with new titles; and also help clear my back catalogue of incompleted games)
Yes I’m afraid to say that he has become a better gamer; partially due to my failing eyesight and slower reflexes due to old age and a demanding wife :-(
For every game he completes I will reward myself with a new PS4 title, while he can be satisfied with the platinum trophy, and the knowledge that the PS4 title will sooner or later be in his hands to complete on my behalf when I lose patience with the game or the wife loses patience with me gaming.

Skyrim to do list:
Attain 100% Completion
Finish in time to get PS5.

I have a bunch of PS3 games I yet have to play, like Metal Gear Solid 4, Resistance 3, Infamous 1&2, Yakuza: Dead Souls, Dark Souls, Tales of Xillia, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD and Lair, not to mention the various PSN games like Rain.

And then there are upcoming PS3 games I look forward to too, like Drakengard 3, Tales of Xillia and hopefully a western release of Yakuza 5 and Yakuza 1&2 HD Collection if SEGA is able to get their groove back.

And I guess I have to try decide whether to play the new Strider on the PS3 or PS4.

So yeah, I’m busy and won’t rush out to get a PS4.

From the top of my head I’d say:

Assassin’s Creed Revelations and III. I need to catch up with the story and the newer mechanics before I start talking like a pirate.

GTA V and Saints Row 4 for that sandbox experience. GTA V for a good story and devolpment and Saints Row so that I can act like a Looney Toon.

Ni no Kuni because I haven’t played a JRPG in years. I miss that style of game play and story telling and since they offer the art of Studio Ghibli with it it becomes very hard to say no.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2. I’m a huge fan of the series and that Dynasty Warriors gameplay is always simple fun. It’s ironic but running around flipping entire armies up-side down is relaxing.

And last but not least Spec Ops: the Line. I was never that much into shooters, only playing them if I randomly got a chance, but after learning about how deep the story is Spec Ops became the first shooter I really want to play.

So yeah, I still got a decent list of games before I get a PS4.

Uncharted 1-3 (Same as InFamous)
Some other games I still haven’t played (see above list)

∞ (Infinity)

The scary thing is, this is just off the top of my head. I’m sure there’s a whole lot more to come!

@loonyspoony: ahaha, I hope you get one of the prizes, your comment made me laugh ;)

There is still a lot of life in PS3. As an rpg gamer there are some more games I am looking forward to. Dark Souls 2 is one of them. Also there will be a lot of games from Japan like Lightning Returns and the final Atelier series installment. Moreover as a fan of Tales of series I will wait for Xillia 2 and the Symphonia HD collection. I may support more developers and publishers if they decide to localize more j-rpg games in Europe!

I had a really long list to write out, but then i too a look and thought to myself you were less likely to give me a prize if you didn’t thin I’d have time to pay it. So i’ll just say this, I will be playing lots of PS3 and I really would like to add Beyond: Two souls to my collection. I’m a huge Ellen Page fan and I think everyone is a huge Willem Defoe fan the man is just great, from Platoon to Spiderman, he’s just an amazing actor. I like to see creative games come out that really do make you think when are you playing a game or a piece of art.

94

I still need to play: beyond two souls, the last of us, remember me , gta 5 and what ever games come out on ps plus (great service btw). Can’t wait for next gen though.

I think I should mention I just bought Beyond: Two Souls, so I guess you can add that to my list of games I need to platinum. Also, for that very reason, I shouldn’t be picked as a winner (I probably wouldn’t get picked anyway, but just to be safe)

That super limited-edition does sound awesome, but it would feel wrong to take it away from someone else, when I already have the game… Great prize this week though! :)

Oh dear, where do I even start? Ever since I got my PS3 SLIM back in 2009 I have not been able to stay away from it. I even gave her a human name. Katsumi Tomo. I place much thought on that before I typed it down.

I currently own old and new games alike. I always look on the bright side and find a way of enjoying those games regardless of their age.
Even when I do complete a game or achieve the platinum trophy, I still keep on playing them, or delete my save file on purpose just so I can enjoy the experience all over again. Up until this day I have not sold a single game in my collection.

Even with the launch of the PlayStation 4, my dear Katsumi will still live on!
Either by playing old PS2 and PSone games. Or even if I’m not playing a game, I am watching a movie with my dear wife. Let it be DVD,BLU-RAY, or a file.
I entertain parties with Vid Zone or just playing my own files with that amazing Earth globe as the background. And also enjoy the holiday photos.

All of this and so much more thanks to the wonderful PlayStation 3 that I love very much. There is still so much that it can do, and I will never let her go.

97

Oh jeez…where do I start?…

I think the fact that I have under 5GB left of my 250GB PS3 tells it all really. I need to do as much in a game as I can possibly do before I delete it. I’m quite the trophy hunter and with so many PS+ games I don’t think i’ll ever get through them all- but I CAN TRY!!

I’m still keeping my PS3 setup with the PS4(which i’m getting at launch) so I can play through all of the great games I have and to play the hopefully great games coming out. The Dark Souls 2 beta is soon and I thankfully got an invite so i’m looking forward to that game more than ever. Support seems to be strong next year too so I don’t think i’ll run out of things to do with my PS3 for a long long time.

I think for now i’ll just stick to playing Grand Theft Auto Online…while staring in bewilderment at my insane backlog, trying to choose the next game to play.

98

I was late to the show for PS3. I got the console years ago when I was in the market for a blu-ray player but never had much time to play it. I suppose that leaves me with a lot to catch up on, having never played any one the Uncharted series or God of War titles. I think the game that I want more than any other right now however is Dark Souls 2 so I can see my PS3 holding pride of place alongside its new friend for months to come. That said before Dark Souls 2 releases I do have a number of things I hope to get through;

1: Play Final Fantasy VI (It was my favourite game on the original PS system and one of my first downloads on PS3 yet I haven’t had the time to play through it yet).

2: Platinum Ico (I don’t think I would be able to platinum SOTC)

3: Play Ni no Kuni (Huge JRPG fan)

4: Play Journey

5: Actually watch a blu-ray (The blu-ray player having been a factor in my purchase has since never been used to play a movie.)

My PS3 will be remaining firmly in position until I have had the chance to play Dark Souls 2 and I’m sure even come November 29th it will continue to get plenty of attention.

Just looking along my shelf and download list there’s quite a lot of games I haven’t even started. Binary Domain, Folklore, The Darkness II, Vanquish, Rayman Legends.

And more that I started but have yet to finish. Mini Ninjas, Heavy Rain, Puppeteer, Child of Eden, Wipeout HD, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, Far Cry 3, Giana Sisters

And yet more that I still want to buy. The Last of Us, EDF 2025, Brothers A Tale of Two Sons, Saints Row 4, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, Ratchet & Clank: Nexus, Lords of Shadow 2, TMNT: Out of the Shadows, Rain.

And there’s many that I would love to find the time to play again. Batman: Arkham Asylum, Portal 2, El Shaddai, Infamous 1 and 2, Guacamelee!, Journey, Sleeping Dogs, Papo & Yo.

Playstation has been my console of choice ever since I knew enough to actually make a choice about consoles, and the Playstation 3 has given me a greater quality and greater variety of entertainment than any other console I’ve owned.

I guess the last thing I want to do with my PS3 is… Everything. I’ve made a pact with myself that I won’t buy a PS4 until I’ve finished all the PS3 games I still want to play. But now that I think about it, by the time that’s done I’ll probably be able to buy a PS5.

I guess my PS3 bucket list isn’t any one game. At the start of the year I set myself a target of taking my total number of Platinum trophies up to 50 (I was on 26). So far I’m at 37 but I’m quickly running out of time and this year has been hectic. To give myself a chance, and because PS4 will soon be devouring my spare time, I’ve lowered my target to 45 on PS3/Vita for now as I’ve recently moved house and have had to spend much of my time packing and unpacking amongst other things.
It’s not totally unrealistic to hit 50 with several of my games in the 80% area (mainly the games like Lego Pirates and Disney Infinity that I play with my kids where trophies play second fiddle to their enjoyment) but with PS4 looming in seven weeks I’ll be starting new games rather than finishing old ones.
On the plus side, I do have four weeks holiday over Christmas so maybe I can push on and get that little bit closer to my target…

Way too many, but me getting a ps4 doesn’t mean i will abandon my ps3 and my huge backlog, just like i haven’t abandoned my ps2 and ps1. Even added one more to my bucket list last week with folklore which i have always wanted to play and is very hard to find cheap. Quite funny buying a game that came out at the start of the ps3 era, at the end of the ps3’s era haha.

Reading through some of these posts makes me feel not so bad lol. I actually canceled my ps4 pre order due to the amount of games I want to finish, platinum, buy and play the dlc for. Ive been wanted to get started on my backlog for ages but dragons dogma has kept me from doing that for the past 5 months lol thank god I plated it, now it can slowly disappear into the completed list.

103

my comments never show on competition pages :( typical!

What do you still want to do on your PS3 before PS4 arrives?

I’d like to press triangle over “you know what i mean” and select delete. Then maybe i consider to buy PS4. Otherwise i think i’ll pass. I don’t want to be deceived and insulted again.

105

what do you still want to do on your PS3 before PS4 arrives?

HAVE FUN ! Rlly) Oldschool ftw! A good coop game and a friend is all you need. Have to Platinum Guacamelee, Ratchet All4one, LBP2, RE5 and of course Diablo 3. Couch-coop 4eva ^_~

Oh Playstation 3
You worry me
Your end is drawing near

With 4 on its way
I’m in dismay
For there’s so much left to clear

Hitman Absolution’s
Fun executions
And Last of Us urban decay

XCOM (E U)
And Puppeteer too
Are all games I’d like to replay

Lego Lord of the Rings
Is one of those things
That I just didn’t get round to try

Then there’s DLC
For Bioshock 3 [Infinite]
And Dishonored that I’ve yet to buy

There is so much more
But my poetry’s poor
And I just cannot make them rhyme

But needless to say
There’s so much to play
If only I had the time

I bought Ps3 one year ago and this is my first Playstation systems. So I want to do very many things. First I must get platinum trophy and I get my first trophy in Heavy Rain (yeah, I finished this amaizing story only this week). Then I want play all exclusive games on PS3 and all classic games in Playstation histori. And only after that I start save money to buy PS4.

108

(part 1)
First of all, I am not sure when PS4 will get equivalent games for 4-player split screen racing Blur and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. So I’ll be using my PS3 to regularly play these two. In addition, I seem to own 67 physical PS3 games on my shelf and digitally some more. I calculated that I have played through less than 10 of them. The games I have finished are Catherine, Heavy Rain, No More Heroes Paradise, Portal 2 and story modes for Mortal Kombat / Dead or Alive. Luckily, I still got royal 7 weeks to finish the rest ;)

More seriously I own great modern classics I should play on PS3. I haven’t yet touched any of the critically acclaimed Uncharted games – but own them all. I still need to play Ni No Kuni – and well other 20-40h+ RPG games in my collection. Do I have time? No, but that’s a minor point. There are also upcoming games I am interested in. These include commercial games like Contrast (2013), just kickstarted Mighty No. 9 (2015) and Reborn (2014) which is currently...

(part 2)
At the moment, my PS3 related buying list has Dragon’s Crown, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD, Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD (and 2.5 when announced), Tales of Xillia 1 & 2, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 (probably waiting complete collection), Diablo III (when released with expansion), XCOM: Enemy Within (currently playing XCOM: Enemy Unknown on PC), Puppeteer, Rogue Legacy… I must have forgot something. There are still so many excellent games released / to be released on PS3 which are not yet part of my collection! Sometimes I fell I am more a game collector than a gamer. I am sure publishers don’t mind ;)

Well my story with PlayStation started back in 98 with the first Sony console, later when the time came there was PS2 however I stopped playing consoles in 2007. Got back in January this year with PS3 so with a 6 years break I basically missed all that PS3 offered. Those couple of months that I spent with PS3 this year I mostly played HD remakes or classic emulated versions of games that I loved back in the PS1, PS2 times. With Metal Gear Solid being my favorite franchise I’m glad I got MGS4 platinum. So what is left for me is a MGS Peace Walker and will gladly try Metal Gear Rising for free thanks to the upcoming IGC. I want to play The Last of Us too and I guess my rather short list will end here. Will look for a PS4 + MGSV bundle at some point next year to start my journey with the next-gen console and truly feel that I’m back with the console gaming.

Must haves for next year are:

Lightning Returns
Tales of Xillia 2
Atelier Escha & Logy

I also need to feed my Vita gaming habits so i cant spend all my money on ps3, also need to save for the ps4 so it all depends on what else might become available for the ps3, was excited for Drakengard 3 but wouldnt get it if it’s just digital.

Still need to finish GtaV,Kingdom Hearts 1,5,Puppeteer,OnePiece,Okami,Dragon’s crown,Yakuza 4…
So it doesnt look my ps3 will retire when the ps4 launches.
Because at the rate all the good games keep coming out,its almost impossible to make a dent in my backlog.
And on top of that there is the old ‘drop my current games for the new shiny ones?’ dilemma.

The most important thing about backlogs is to not rush through them,because in the end it can impact your experience in a negative way.

I own too many games and I’ll try to complete as many as I can before PS4 and my aim will be completing games, not earning trophies. Trophies are still fun to earn, because it shows how much effort you have put in certain games, so my wish is to make more memorable memories with the PS3 before PS4 arrives and I’ll do my best to make them, but I will not forget my dear PS3 after ps4, because there are few games which are released for PS3 after ps4, so I need to play them.

Anyways I’m still happy that there are games for ps3 which I need to play even after PS4 has been released, because I don’t play on Playstation for the graphics I play for the games, so that’s why I’m still happy that I have a huge backlog and it will continue to grow to be even bigger. Even though I don’t mind playing on PS3 I’m anxiously waiting for the PS4 launch, because it will have unique social racing games and other great multiplayer games which are only possible with the nextgen.

We could say that we are the most luckiest gamers ever, because today we have the most awesome games which people have never seen before, so we truly are lucky and we should be happy for our big backlog and with the nextgen the future of gaming looks even better! :D

I have played quite a lot of games but there is one series I haven’t which is a big regret. Dark Souls/Demon Souls. I know you’ve played it and have heard great praise for it but in the endless stream of releases I have missed it. I do love a challenge which is good since I have heard it’s pretty hard! However after playing heavy rain the next on my bucket list is Beyond Two Souls. I mean it looks like a masterpiece and should help the ps3 end with a bang! I don’t know when I’ll get to play it as money is tight saving for the ps4 :(

115

I’m still trying to finish XCOM on ironman mode for the platinum it’s truly evil but fun. Other than that just replaying some of my favourites like Bioshock & Dishonored might sneak in a complete replay of skyrim which will eat up the hours.

Well firstly I need to tackle the ‘meat’ of GTA:V (IE: the story) before jumping into the ‘dessert’ which really seems like yet another main course, GTA:ONLINE; I’m really excited to try it out but I need to find the time.

Next up I have two WWII games from the recent sale which are Birds of Steel & Sniper Elite:V2; the former is absolutely magnificent and I’m loving every moment of it whereas the latter is a bit unrealistic (in scenarios on offer)but I’m enjoying it nonetheless. Yet again I’m planted to the ground so time isn’t easily accessible right now.

I also have a few games to platinum (which I love doing by the way, a few games to tackle ‘blind’ such as the two Fallout games, Ratchet & Clank HD trilogy and more – I love all of these games too!

In short, I’m going to be occupied right up until the PS4’s release as I have games in my possession and more to be released that need completing this year! Examples of this are AC4, GT6 and Batman on my PS3! And I haven’t even touche...

I just watched the last ever Breaking Bad on my PS3…I’m done, don’t need to play or watch anything ever again.

118

Oh dear, oh dear. Frankly, it’s embarrassing. Playstation Plus has completely spoiled me over the last year and along with my tendency to be tempted by new shiny stuff I have a huge backlog of games from PSN and on disc.

Just looking up at one shelf shows The Darkness 2, Prototype 2, Spec Ops, Binary Domain, Alpha Protocol, 3d Dot Game Heroes and Alpha Protocol. All bought at some point with every intention of devoting some time to them but all overtaken by something newer and shinier.

I have so many Plus downloads I need to finish including Catherine, Space Marines, Just Cause 2, Saints Row 2 and 3, Hitman, Sleeping Dogs. Not even counting the “small” games that I’ve bought for my PS3 and Vita that swallow days….Hotline Miami, Spelunky, Virtue’s Last Reward and Pinball Arcade – I lost weeks to that game and I’ll still return to it in future.

Finally, the big game I still have to get is The Last of Us, I have to play that as Naughty Dog are complete masters of the PS3.

My PS3 will be remaining on the shelf next to it’s new big brother so I still aim to get more of these games finished but really I’ve never going to catch up am I? What a problem to have. :)

Well, the last game I played on my PS3 before it went away was the Last of Us and I thought to myself, at least I went out with a bang…

And then I saw the games that were coming out and thought #$%@
I’m not that big of a GTA fan so it’s not that, but I’m a big fan of Suda 51 so Killer is Dead is one game I want to play badly, but there’s also Beyond: Two Souls and Puppeteer. I’m even considering borrowing a PS3 for those three. But with the PS4 around the corner and Black Flag looking so great it’s a bit hard to buy those games.

Maybe when we can stream ps3, I play them or something…

Hello! Well, I guess like ALOT of people I’m really looking forward to beyond two souls, and it’s that that has lured me to the scary forums. My pile of shame, like many, is truly shocking. Anyway, I’ve taken some games from that pile, and some that I NEED to play again, and tried to write a poem. Believe it or not, it’s taken almost four hours,(!!!) yet is still no better than a Vogon poem, please be nice!

Dear PS3 i love you,
I long to see our JOURNEY through,
You’ve never DISHONORED me,
have always been true,
REMEMBER ME I’m yours,
On this LITTLE BIG PLANET 2.

As the RAIN tumbles down,
A lifeline I need,
Like 2 BROTHERS on a mission,
I need some guidance, some ASSASSINS CREED.

The SAINTS ROW 4 had their RED DEAD REDEMPTION,
Help me be a TOMB RAIDER,
Give me that sense of elation,
Show me the wonder of TOKYO ZOO,
Play me haunting music from NI NO KUNI and UNCHARTED 2.

Take me to Joel and Ellie, one more time,
I beg you please,
Don’t let this be THE LAST OF US,
I don’t want you to ...

I wanna play Yakuza 5, but it’s not coming to UK.
I wanna do heists on GTA Online but it’s not out yet.
I wanna get that last trophy I need on Tomb Raider, but it’s gonna take forever.
I wanna play beyond two souls and I wanna play watchdogs when it comes out.

I still got the psplus games to beat, gotta say, far cry 3 is a lot better than ac3, hope ac4 makes up for dat, really hoping they release far cry 4 on ps4!
The funny thing i found out is dat many games ending with 3 was released on ps3 such as dead space 3, crysis 3, fc3, ac3 and bf3, dis will b da same pattern for ps4 haha, we got ac4, bf4 and more haha, too bad gta v will not b making da cut haha
Too busy right now owning da noobs on gta 5 online haha, for some reason i get kicked out of deathmatches and survival mode now, i think im too good dat its unfair for other players haha hope dats not da case haha or it just might b my internet connection haha
Still got ps3 games yet to play such as the call of duty games (think im the only 1 who hasnt played any), last of us, bioshock infinite, dishonoured, borderlands 2, devil may cry and much, will clock all ps3 games b4 buyin a ps4, plz release skyrim and fallout 2 on psn, heard a lot of gud things bout those titles

My Current Gen bucketlist is as long as the world is wide. Can anyone measure the width of the world from end to end? Separate the east from the west? I know I certainly can’t.

So to name a few titles that are on my bucket list:
Beyond: Two souls (Just so interested in the story and the gameplay)
Assassins Creed three (I need to finish the trilogy or whatever it is now)
Continue thrashing my boyfriend on Uncharted
Beat my brother to platinum on Tomb raider.

And that is just to name a few. I could go on and on.

So when the PS4 comes out I am going to be holed up in my bunker in the garden watching the world fall down around my ears as I realise I am never going to play all that I want.

Ps3 Creation story
Gta 4 and Gta san andreas had a baby= gta 5
Uncharted 3 + dead island= last of us ( had more traits from his dad uc3 haha)
Remember me is mirrors edges older sister
Ac revelations + handicap= ac3 ( killed da series haha)
Saints row 3 reincarnated into a more cheeky, outgoing, lil kid saints row 4
Will think of sum more haha

Personally I’d like to try and get 100% of the trophies in all my games before the PS4 releases. Its not realisticly possible as new games are still releasing (and will be after the PS4 launch) but as close as possible will be good enough for me.

A lot is said about people who buy games for the trophies or rate a game based on its trophy list but I for one enjoy them. It gives me chance to experience content that on previous gen games I would ignore, (hardcore modes for example) or outright not even know about!

In terms of backlog I’ve made pretty good progress recently. I actually made up a spreadsheet so I could keep track of what games I have yet to go through and its helping a great deal. Plus I’ve just broke from work for the next 9 days for my birthday so even more gaming can occur! (Here’s ironically hoping that no-one buys me any games this year :P)

Anyway, back to Puppeteer, the only game that rivals LBP in terms of creativity!

Too many to count. I ust BOUGHT PS3 after holding off for years. I have a big backlog of games on my PC to start with and yet on PS3 I plan to finish GTAV, Catherine, Assassin’s Creed saga (never found it playable on my PC), Far Cry 3, all three Uncharted, Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite, MGS4….I have things to do for at least a year or two!

ha you crack me up Fred. Reminding us about our backlogs and then wanting to add to it in the same sentence. You are a devious man indeed but you got me.
My bucket list is simple. I have a target to achieve 50 platinum trophies before the PS4 arrives, settles in and makes itself a part of my family. The platinum that is taunting me is killzone 3 multiplayer and I have been stuck needing the triple kill trophy for months so if I manage to do that in the next 7 weeks I will be able to move on in my playstation life content and happy.
Btw out of curiosity, is the beyond 2 souls platinum hard? ; )

“I cannot live… yet I cannot die.” The words of Gabriel Belmont. There are several games I could cite (The Last of Us and Beyond particularly) but the most important for me is unquestionably Castlevania:Lords of Shadow 2.

His words shall echo the period between PS4’s launch up until the game’s release for me. I can’t quite explain it but I feel compelled to not move to PS4 until I set him free so I am preparing to enter limbo very soon since there will be temptation clashing with my own vow. I was foolish enough not to pick up the first at release. I will not repeat that mistake for the second!

The end of this epic shall herald the end of this generation.

130

Most likely go back to where it all started for me, with the first 3 I bought when I got my PS3, Sega Rally, Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction and Oblivion.

Replaying ratchet and clank will be a delight to me as I am a big fan of the ratchet games and oblivion is a game that took up so many of my Saturday mornings.

But most of all will be the very first game I played on my PS3, Sega Rally. It was never on my list of games to play, it came with the PS3 so it was a game that I played for abit then got put back into the shelf, while I went to play Uncharted and Resistance etc. So to go back to this game after all this time and after how little I play it will be a moment in itself. Kinda shows how ive gone full circle.

I still have about a dozen PS3 games that I want to play, Bioshock Infinite, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Sly: Thieves in Time being a few of them.

I’m leaving the PS4 until next year since there’s no rush and I’m planning on Dragon Age: Inquisition being the first PS4 game I play in 2014. Not really a good idea buying a PS4 at launch when there aren’t any games I want to play then.

Even without the great upcoming titles, I have my own gaming White Whale to deal with: Metal Gear Solid 4… TROPHIES!

Let me prefix this “My name is Dan and I’m an MGS-aholic”. I bought myself a PS3 on 12/06/08 in the middle of my GCSE’s just for MGS4. It was my only PS3 game for 8 months and I played it completely! From the Big Boss playthrough to the chicken playthrough I did it all. And purely for my own satisfaction, no trophies. Years passed, my trophy obsession grew, and there was still no word of a trophy patch. Then the HD collection came out, so I promptly platinum’d all three games. Then a few months later, there I was feeling content and it happened, the trophy patch. I greeted it with jubilation and reserve. I knew I wanted the trophies but I also knew I’d have to play it all again to get them.

So on my honour as an MGS fan and a platinum hunter, I will platinum MGS4 before I leave the PS3 behind!

It seems only fitting that I must return to my very first PS3 game to say goodbye to this fantastic console.

133

what do I still want to do on my PS3 before PS4 arrives? The same thing I’ll be doing on my PS3 after PS4 arrives, I’m not putting it away, I’ll still be enjoying the monthly Plus updates and new releases for a long time after the PS4 joins my Playstation Ecosystem. It’s not going away. Why would it? Now I’ll have 3 consoles to fill my every spare, and not-spare minute.

This answer is almost impossible to answer for me, as I don’t set targets. As a matter of fact, when I turn on my PS3, I typically don’t even know yet which game I’ll be playing.

That does not bother me at all. I like to try out many different games, and I have lots to choose from. Sometimes it happens that a particular game manages to grab me so much that I will not play any other game until I complete it. Although there are many great games, this only ever happens so often.

It happend with The Cave and Spec Ops The Line recently. It happend with The Saboteur in the past. I think it will happen with GTA V when I allow myself the time to fully enjoy it.

I think what I want to do in these remaining weeks is to discover another such game.

Any suggestions?

I’m not one to boast
But here in this post
With a noticeable lack of glee

I stare at my games
With a twingence of shame
It all starts with Assassins Creed Three

With a dash and a slash
I make my way past
To the ending I’m longing to see

Bioshocks seas
Are a welcoming breeze
But beware of local the splicee’s

Catherine as well
To fall for her spell
Such a sheepish thing to be

The mountain only grows
For Zeus only knows
The backlog never ceases to be

New stories and old
Forever being told
Here on my PS3

I personally don’t see the PS4 as the end for the PS3. I still even often go back to enjoy the delights of my PS1 and PS2 – escape into the worlds of Final Fantasy 7, Metal Gear Solid, Crash Bandicoot, SSX, Shadow of the Colossus, all the cornerstones of the Playstation Universe that make this console great.

This generation still has so much to offer, albeit the torch will now be passed on to the PS4. For me, it seems fitting that one of the final ‘big’ releases is GTA 5, a primarily Playstation franchise, with the latest incarnation being able to show off just what this console is still capable of.

For now PS3, it’s farewell, but not goodbye.

138

Ironically, being reminded that the PS4 is so close to release makes me just want to rush through my backlog (and pick up a few gems I’ve always intended to play!).

Firstly, on PSN, it seems that the ‘oldies but goodies’ are most likely to have fallen by the wayside until now. Think about it: how many new PS3 owners have had a chance to play Penny Arcade, Costume Quest and Stacking? Yet, I recently downloaded demos for a couple of these, and immediately had to purchase the full versions.

Then we have the list of AA and AAA titles. I’ve yet to finish L.A. Noire, Valkyria Chronicles, and Portal 2…and there’s no way relegating my PS3 to second place before picking up Castlevania, Ico & Shadow of the Colossus, and Ni No Kuni. Sony may want to consider giving all of the above one more public push…I know most gamers would love to discover some these hidden gems before moving on the next generation!

In summary, wouldn’t it be exciting to get a glimpse of the console’s highlights before the PS4 drops? This way, we’ve got a great opportunity to set ourselves up for the next gen, with the ‘best of’ to hand on our PS3s, ready to blast through while the PS4’s awesome library starts to build up!

This gen still has lots of good games coming exclusively for it.

Beyond: Two Souls as as soon as can scrap together the money for it, is my priority purchade.
Batman Arkham Origins
Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2
Dark Souls 2 (in the beta, whoo!)
Ultra Street Fighter IV
Gran Turismo 6
Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD collection

+And many more, who needs next gen when this gen still got lots of exclusive games no matter what type of gamer you are.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengance
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 3
PixelJunk Shooter 2
And Last but not least BEYOND: Two Souls, I need to play that game before the PS4 arrives.

My backlog is so long thanks to playstation plus for giving me the opportunity to play games I would never have bought myself. Apart from the huge backlog, I still have yet to pick up ‘The Last of Us’ I haven’t even played it or seen anyone play it, but I know its amazing game because its ‘Naughty Dog’ and I know what to expect from them! I would also like to pick up ‘Ratchet & Clank: Nexus’ as Insomniac is the best, they have not made a bad game to date I don’t think, + Ratchet is awesome.

142

I have a lot of games in my backlog but the ones I really want to finish are the games that are a bit different from the norm. Games I might not get a chance to play on the PS4

Games like:

Asura’s Wrath – Capcom’s interesting experiment that is one part game and another part anime.

Wonderbook: Diggs Nightcrawler – I always liked the idea behind wonderbook and Diggs looks to be the peripheral’s killer app.

Tornado Outbreak – A game where you play as a tornado. What?! Yeah, I’m as surprised as you are. I definitely want to try that.

Noby Noby Boy – I saw this game on a sale and it just looked weird. I had to try it.

Finally, Greed Corp. I always liked this game’s art style and my instincts told me it was good. Doesn’t hurt that friends tell me it’s great as well.

There is nothing like a console transition to remind you how many good games there have been in this generation.

143

I think I’m gonna have to run both consoles in tandem for a little while as the backlog is much too large to go through before. Put myself down for PS4 megapack and the Vigilante Edition of Watchdogs so that’s a 530 quid spend on Nov 29 so I’ll be glad for my backlog to give me a change of pace.

I’ve got GTA finish, Beyond Two Souls to start and that’s just purchases from this last month. I also really need to finish both of the XCOMS, Dead Space 2 and 3 and go back for the Heavy Rain platinum.

I’ve also got both the Darksiders games to go through and a load of PS+ stuff.

Sometimes I wonder why I buy these games knowing I simply don’t have the free time to play them.

144

@Izorpo I know how you feel, I’m actually trying to break that habit. I’ve never been a completionist but at least playing a game for a certain number of hours/up to a certain percentage of completion would be nice before rushing out to buy the next shiny new game. And that’s what I’m trying now. A set of rules should work just fine, like finish 1 game before you buy another or anything you can set at your own pace.

So I won’t be getting a PS4 for a while (hopefully I won’t be tempted by the PS4 Plus IGC titles I might be missing) and instead will be busy with RDR, Ni No Kuni, Heavy Rain, Xcom:EU, Borderlands 2, Okami and Far Cry 3, all of which are titles I haven’t completed yet. Maybe I’ll finally platinum Virtua Tennis on the Vita and spare some time for the many Plus Vita offerings like Virtue’s Last Reward or Lego LOTR.

145

Probably alot
I still have yet to complete(As in even post game and extra content) Disgaea 4, And i got Disgaea Dimension 2 a week ago, Many other games i didn’t beat, Plus games, I also have a 3DS and plan to get a Wii U down in the way when Monolith Soft game gets released, Then might get a PS4

146

South park: the stick of truth. Why? Because it’s south park!

And the rest of playstation plus games that i haven’t played yet.

Actually i decided that before i start playing with the PS4, i have to finish all my current games on the current console. This way i get the feeling that ive got everything done and i can move to the next console without feeling that there’s still something left to complete on PS3. After the PS4 has launched my PS3 will propably still be in use as a nostalgia item though :)

148

For me it has to be Infamous 2.
It’s the only game ever i’ve happily completed 3 times without getting bored.
I thank Playstation Plus for making me realise how great this game is.
10/10.

149

I’m going to go Beyond the Two Souls that are you, the reader, and I the writer and delve into the pieces of my gamimg life that closely resemble Lego bricks, just like in Lego Lord of the Rings. Then with a Ratchet in hand and a Clank made with each step, I’ll complete Ratchet amd Clank All 4 One with my brother. I might need his help. There’s nothing like close siblings. A Brotherhood if you will, like in my next goal, AC Brotherhood. Finishing that will have bioShocking consequences as I move on to another game. By thrn the PS4 will almost be upon, so a good thing I’ll be up to The Last of them, or from the game’s point of view, The Last of Us. There are so many more things I want to finish in our Little Big Planet, but sometimes you just have to move on instead of getting Tekken by something else.

150

nothing, ready to hit the PS4 head on and leave the PS3 behing

151

Dark Souls 2 and GTAV. I’m hoping for PS4 versions of both.

152

We all have something in our bucket still not played.
But the best is in front of us.
GT 6 , on December the 6th !!!
The game pads will melt !!!

153

Having a first edition PS3, I’ve been playing PS2 games throughout the current gen cycle. Slowly but surely completing more and more games. I seriously wish to finish ICO (HD version, thanks to PS+). Just got The Last of Us, which is so intense, I need to take breaks in between playthroughs. Even though it’s rather hard to quit.

My goal is to play the most emotionally engaging games available, before any other. So, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, Spec Ops the Line, Homefront, Mafia 2 (the story is good enough to be on this list for me) and the afore mentioned ICO and The Last of Us.

Aside from that, Dragon’s Dogma is awesome, I’d like to learn stealth in Dishonored and I’d like to experience Beyond:Two Souls!

And this might not score any points on the Sony side: I need to finish Skyward Sword!

154

The bucket list is overflowing since the RAIN. It already was full with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Dark Souls 2, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, BioShock Infinite and even more! BEYOND that I once again have to travel abroad to UNCHARTED territories. Enjoyed the last two trips and third time’s the charm as they say.

*snort*

155

Way to many games, nr 1 on the list is without doubt Yakuza 5, should it ever release in the West (for which I have little hope :-().

Other games include:

Ni No Kuni => stuck on the end by wanting to grind a little to much
Metal Gear Rising => still encased in plastic
Spec Ops The Line, Uncharted 3, Prince of Persia, Mini Ninja’s, Far Cry 3 => all great PS+ games for which I didn’t have the time to play (but will someday)
Beyond Two Souls => this has the best chance to be next finished game
Yakuza Dead Souls => stopped playing this with the release of GTA 5, expect to finish it in the beginning of november
Remember Me => lost track of it, delighted to hear it will be on PS+
Probably much more of which I lost track and that is not even including playstation 2 games.

And of course one future release that I’ll buy immediately: Dark Souls 2

Conclusion: way too much games, way too little time to play them all

Well, that’s the big problem… too many good games to play, and when the new generation time comes, you realize you still have a lot to enjoy on the current gen.

And PS3 is the last of my problems… there are still games I’d like to play on PS2 (The Mark of Kri as an example) and PS; first of all I have to finish Final Fantasy VII… I know, it’s a shame, I’ve played more than half of it, but for various reasons I didn’t come to the end… really one of the best games ever…

Talking of PS3 there’s plenty of games I should play, but one for sure: Resistance 3; I played many times the first two chapters of the saga (and Retribution too)… I have never enjoyed first person shooters, but Resistance is much more than that… the first one was fresh air for me… so I just can’t miss the third one…

Thanks to PSplus my backlog is rather huge..

My main want is to finish Thomas was alone, I know how it feels to be alone and being surrounded by rectangular shaped superheros, Art imitating life I belive…

Looking forward to ps4 just finding rectangular superheros to assist in the cooperation of navigating the maze of my money is proving a problem..Life imitating art I belive…

Thanks to PS Plus my backlog is an endless black hole that wont stop getting bigger…Free games more like extra stress!

After reading users responses I must say I’m relieved because I’m not the only one having such long list of games I din’t even try of this (really amazing btw) generation!

I’m happy I finished top exclusives like Uncharted trilogy, Heavenly Sword, Heavy Rain, Infamous 1 & 2, Flower, God of War III…, but still many left.

Despite of some solid AAA games I’ve just started playing (Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed III thanks to PS+), or still going to ( Bioshock Infinite, GTA V) I’m most thrilled to play those awesome experiences that only PS3 have to offer like Journey, Puppeteer, The Last of Us, new Ratchet and Clank and of course Beyond.

Even if my pile of shame is quite long there are so many new IP’s and independent titles that I’m still going to play after I finish Killzone Shadow Fall on my PS4 during Christmas ;)

Playstation Plus is the worst thing to ever happen to backlogs. I have bought the grand total of 4 games this year, the least games i have ever bought but I still find myself swamped with an ever growing list of games. I am not ready for PS4 at all but I have come to the conclusion that I probably never will be.

As for what is on my list, I will miss the PS4 launch as I will still be here listing. I have gone to the extreme of categorising my games into high, medium and low priorities as I know fine well that I will not get to play them all.

Next gen? NEXT GEN?? Arrggghhhh… I’ve still to get a platinum trophy in THIS gen (don’t laugh).

So the easy answer is “get a platinum trophy” but I’ve had 5 or so years to get one and not managed it so a month and a few days isn’t going to help..

So the more difficult answer is in a few segments:

1. Increase my free time

Sounds easy enough but with a girlfriend, 2 year old daughter, full time job and a pending move from the UK to Ireland on the cards that’s not actually easy… this brings me onto my next answer.

2. Create days that have more than 24 hours

I’m in the process of talking with God about this.

Recently I’ve rediscovered the genre that I think was at it’s best during the first PlayStation era – Japanese RPG. I’ve completed FFXIII-2, Resonance of Fate and FFIX in the last 3 months and fell in love with the genre again. I played them JRPGs for thousands of hours (literally) on PSone, had a great time with some of them (FFX, FFXII, Dragon Quest 8) on PS2, but it was not the same, as more and more games started abandoning the turn based/ATB battle system. And recently I felt the love again, now I’m planning on playing more JRPGs, I’ve set my sight on the Atelier series, Agarest series and of course the next FF titles (cannot wait to play Blitzball again in FFX HD). And the best part is, one RPG can last more then a dozen games from other genres, so it should keep me busy until I buy PS4. And I still have some PS3 exclusives (the main reason PS3 is the most occupied console this generation in my home) to play, like GoW:A, Beyond (even if I don’t win it here, I’ll still buy it) ...

Before i buy Playstation 4 i want to buy and play following games on my Playstation 3: Bayonetta, Dante’s Inferno, God of War 2, Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta, Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 and 4, Tomb Raider, DMC Devil May Cry, Beyond Two Souls. I also have to complete games from my backlog: Jak $ Daxter trilogy, Xcom Enemy Unknown, Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning, Dragon’s Dogma. And i have to buy Playstation Vita to play all those games from playstation plus and Killzone Mercenary. Playstation 3 and Vita realy have a lot to offer, that’s amazing. After all this i should be ready to jump to Playstation 4.

All this RPGs!! At 40-80 hours a pop there are really hard to sit down and put time into them.

Tales of Graces F, Tales of Xillia, Star Ocean, Dark Souls, No no Kuni, Eternal Sonata, Folklore, Soul Sacrifice. When I get time I WILL complete them!

Also been delving into some ps1 RPGs like Breath of Fire 3 on PSP, Grandia, and nearly completed FF9!

So much to do, so little time!

I have a few more games to do before my time with the PS3 comes to an end.

Ratchet and Clank Nexus.

I have been waiting for a single player experience since the amazing Crack in Time.

South Park: The Stick Of Truth

The game that almost didn’t happen. Like Ghostbusters this one managed to survive a liquidation of it’s original company and I am glad. I cannot wait to play the second best RPG of the year.

I have also to get round to playing:

Metal Gear Rising (Thank you PlayStation Plus

Farcry 3 (Again thanks!)

Borderlands 1 & 2 (I have started one on several occasions)

Binary Domain

I think that wraps it all up.

Busy playing GTA 5 then still need to get through Splinter Cell Blacklist and Gran Turismo 6 and Beyond:Two Souls – if I could get my hand on a copy ;-) Waiting for PS4 before I dive into Assassins Creed:Black Flag, Watch Dogs and Battlefield 4.

I have managed to come to terms with the fact I will never get to play a lot of the games sitting on my ps3 download list but before I get my ps4 I want to shorten my platinum bucket list. Every time I boot up, almost, any new game I decide I’m going to go for the coveted platinum, somehow I rarely achieve it, either due to a lack of free time or a new game that I need to play, often with the intention of getting that platinum thus continuing the cycle. The Last of Us, Hitman, Golden Abyss, Spec Ops, Bioshock infinite and many others are all only a couple of trophies away from the platinum and maybe I will need to come to terms with the fact they will stay that way.

Man, I have SO many games left to play, it’s amazing. I’ve only recently started playing PS3 games (a few months ago), so I still have a long way ahead. A few that come to mind are Final Fantasy XIII-2, Lightning Returns – Final Fantasy XIII, Disgaea 3/4/D2, Heavy Rain, Tales of Xillia, God of War Ascension… There are many more that I can’t remember right now (as it’s currently pretty early in the morning here in Brazil), and I still gotta platinum all the games I already own! Besides, Playstation Plus makes this even harder than it should be. Yeah, I’m pretty happy as a PS3 owner :P

For the first time in my life, I now have not one, but two backlogs. And it’s Sony’s fault!

Ever since the PS4 release date was announced, I started on a mission to trim the backlog of games I’ve bought over the years: games that got lost in time, like Dead Space 2 (loved the first one!), are still looking at me from my shelf, disgusted that I could buy them and just let them there, unplayed. Indeed, shame on Dead Space 2, shame on me.

What Dead Space 2 fails to understand is that Sleeping Dogs and Dragon’s Dogma are also competing for my time. I haven’t told Dead Space 2 about my PS+ subscription, as it feels like cheating. And I love them all the same, I really do. Even those round bouncy icons on my PS Vita, looking into my eyes as if saying “why haven’t you finished Hotline Miami yet, huh?”.

I am currently playing Sleeping Dogs. I am also not ready to have yet a 3rd category of backlog, one where I didn’t buy the game, or got it through PS+, but won it for free at a competition....

But since my wife is dying to see how Beyond is (she loved Heavy Rain), at least I’m positive this one would go straight into the the PS3.
And no, I wouldn’t let Dead Space 2 know about this one as well.

Oh wow, Where do I start? Ever since I joined PlayStation Plus there has been a whole array of games that both intrigued me and introduced me to new genres. Even to this day, there’s still so much left to play on my PS3, that is how rewarding Plus can be. As of now I’m playing Assassin’s Creed 3, my first game in the AC franchise, and boy is it one of the best stealth games I’ve ever played. This guarantees my first PS4 game to be AC4: Black Flag, along with Knack of course.
Over in my left field, I have Catherine, a dark innovative horror. The puzzles can be quite difficult, but the engaging storyline makes it all worth it.
In the near future, although I’m an avid PS fan, I’v still yet to play Heavy Rain. Maybe because the gameplay looks a little intimidating, knowing that I can change fate with a press of a button. But with the hype surrounding Beyond:Two Souls, I knew that I’ve got to try out Quantic Dream’s other game first.
My PS4 probably isn’t going to arrive anytime soon, wh...

My PS4 probably isn’t going to arrive anytime soon, what with University planning and all, but my PS3 guarantees i have a bucket of games left to play and enjoy :)

With my girlfriend stealing my copy of GTA5 I have yet to start it. I only have the small task of finishing Kingdoms of Amaular and Diablo 3, and that is before plus force me to play Remember Me in a couple of weeks

Does any one know when PS4 is launching in India???

Oh man, I have an unplayed list of over 200 games just on PS3! If I included 3DS/DS/Vita/Wii and WiiU, I basically won’t need a new console until the PS6 is out…

I’m determined to at least have played one(!) of the CoD releases from the last 4 years before I jack it in…

This is further exacerbated by the following:

a) I’m 37 years old and should know better
b) I seem to be continually unable to calculate my own spare time vs the amount of games I buy
c) Continually ignore the fact that as my disposable income goes up, my available spare time goes down (see also point b)
d) My excuse of “this’ll be a great game to play with the kids” never seems to happen as I buy yet another local multiplayer-centric game, as their spare time always seems to occur whilst I’m at work!

Sigh….

Got my ps3 in January…So everything.

no need for ps4 for like maybe next 2 years with arkham origins and dark souls 2 and all the free plus games i barelly touched.. you ruined my interest in ps4 yourself

Firstly, I’m very glad that the topic was current-gen, if I were to go back further I’m sure there would be titles on both PSOne and PS2 still waiting to be played.

As for the current gen, I won’t lie, I have a fair few, there are some I’ve finished that I want to go back to such as Eat Lead and Dante’s Inferno (Don’t hate me, I liked them)

But I don’t tend to go back despite telling myself I will. So I’ve developed a system, stick with a game until I see it through and then move on, this would work very well, except I always end up getting new games and therefore some of my collection gathers dust.

As for titles still to finish, GTA V, Saints Row IV, Dark Souls, Kingdoms of Amalur, Kingdom Hearts and a whole host more (And that’s not even counting Vita games!)

But my current addictions are GTA V and Skydive: Proximity Flight (A surprisingly great game which is the perfect embodiment of the “Just one more go” style game)

Like most, my backlog is massive. Since I’m going for 100% trophy completion, I’m trying to knock off everything with Multiplayer before servers either depopulate or close down. Having just finished Red Dead: Redemption online, I’m moving onto games like Bad Company, Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3.

Then it’s onto my extensive PS Plus library, which includes some fantastic games that I’m looking forward to experiencing, like Far Cry 3, and open games that I’ve already started but have let fall by the wayside, like Hitman: Absolution and inFamous 2.

Finally, Heavy Rain has been staring at me from my shelf for the past few years. I picked it up for cheap, but never took the time to progress very far, and that’s always been a regret.

My plan is to alternate between my PS3 and PS4, ensuring that I get to enjoy the latest content (very excited about Watch_Dogs, inFamous: Second Son, and Destiny), without missing out on all the great games that the PS3 still has to show me.

@FRED
Seriously mate? Those few games arent a backlog! Thats a weekend session! Nah just kidding bit I wish my backlog was that size. I have 68 retail games disk and digital, PS+ and purchased including:
Max Payne 3
Red Dead Redemption
Crysis 2&3
Battlefield 3 Premium
Hitman HD Coll&Absolution
Just Cause 2
Black Ops 2 and MANY MANY MORE

71 PSN games which are mostly made up of PS+ games from before the IGC
And last but no means least 30 Vita Games Including:…….well you get the idea, there are just too many to list and im wasting gaming time by trying to list them all. LOL

What doesnt help me n why its SUCH a big backlog is that im a trophy addict and its always 100% or nothing so i have to get all trophies for every game including all DLC Trophies (that reminds me……..Uncharted 3 DLC!!!

Im off, got so much work to do, AND ive got PS4 with KZ, Watch Dogs and AC4 next month!

I think most of us have ridiculously long lists, I’m going to have to prioritise just those that I’ll be ashamed to never play. Currently that means the whole Uncharted series – can’t believe I haven’t started that one – Ni no kuni, Bioshock Infinite and The last of us all need to be played too, I think I need to be worried as I believe all of these are epicly long.

I’m giving serious consideration to getting a dog so he can play half my list for me and we can discuss the in game stories together during walkies at the end of every session, otherwise I may never see sunlight again. I doubt my missus will agree to no more holidays until my backlog is done, but it would definitely help if I could use my annual leave for that instead.
