I know its still some weeks away, but I figured we could get a headstart on (Achieving?) April! I was thinking of a good way to kinda streamline the event and came up with this idea.

Everyone send me a PM of your top 30+ games you need/want to play from your backlog. It has to be atleast a yearish old or apart of a bundle. Something that's truly in a backlog. Playing newer game (Path of Exile for me lol) is a lot of fun, but we're looking to get rid of our back logs! I'll then make up a list of the 25 most owned backlog games. We can then vote for a community game or two that we can all play. (Maybe a medium and short game) We can also pair up with each other, if we decide to, for the always fun "Dude, you need to play THAT game!" I'll have a list ready to vote on by the 25th. Voting would then go from the 25th to the 31st. So, the sooner you send me a list, the better.

Actually, I feel like I'm drowning not only in my backlog, but in promises to complete at least a part of that backlog too! :lol:

Anyway, I'll do Achieving April fo' sho, just need a little bit of free time to draw a list following your guidelines... I guess we'll go through the highest voted games and, in case we don't own some of them, for the ones immediately next, right?

Check your PMs. I left that one out of the group that went under my pits.

I would love to be in but not sure how much free time I'll have in April. It was so much easier collecting games. ;)

Not at all! We encourage all backlog punchingintheface!

Ugh. Tell me about it. Collecting them is the best part lol The first time I did this, I listed all the games I beat. Out of like 150+ I beat 3. I felt ashamed of myself. But, through the last few months, ive played games that other people suggested that I probably never would have. Some of them have launched into my top 10 list of all time. It blew me away with what I was missing!

I generally only try to do 2 games and the community game, that way its not to much of a time commitment.

Sadly I think I only beat 4 games last year, Coconut Queen, Dear Esther, Costume Quest, and Stacking....... 8-)

:lol:

I'm kind of similar in that I have all these games, like over 1,000, and some are big budget or were expensive at one time etc but what do I end up playing lately? 7 Wonders Alien Makeover. ;)

Someone should make a game about collecting games. It could be the Indie Bundle and game sale collector simulator.

My list is so out of control, I wouldn't even know where to start. Definitely I think 2 games is more manageable. I'm also all about shorter games these days.

You could add in selling extra games to get more games. Kinda like a Video Game Dope Wars?

No, No, No, we're talking about getting rid of backlog, not adding to it. ;)
I'm hoping to finish Fallout 3 GOTY by the end of March.

It doesn't look like I'll be able to beat those games before the end of the month after all, so I'm out :-|

Looks like a highly talked about game and enjoyed by a lot of people is taking the lead. But everythings super close, most are seperated by 1 vote.

Annnnnnnnnnnd here's the winners!

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
Darksiders
Jade Empire: Special Edition
Trine
Magicka

Remember, you don't have to play all of them. (Im more than likely completing only 2) But please feels free as to let us know what youre going to be starting first! Also, feel free to pair up with someone if you wish for that little extra gaming and suggest some game from each others backlogs. Got a game that you love and it rarely played? Let them know!

I'm personally starting with Vampire. I keep hearing great things about this game, but have only played it for around an hour. Dont know why I never did. It has all the stuff I love. RPG, Story, choose your own adventure style. So, here it goes!

this is really a cool idea\\:D/ I have all my stuff on backloggery.com, which you all should really check out if you haven't already. Do the games need to have been bough 1+ year ago, or just have been released in that time?

EDIT: didn't realize this had already been finalized. The only one I own is Darksiders (from PS+), so I suppose I'll play that. Gotta beat the last couple levels of Kirby's Epic Yarn first though

If anyone wants to do group events for Magicka or Trine I'd be up for that if it's a day/time I can make it.

ok cool:D I wasn't sure because it was in the PC section. I think my list for April, assuming I don't get sidetracked by something new, will be:

Finish
  • Kirby's Epic Yarn (on the last world)
  • Critter Crunch (last few puzzles and challenges)[stuck on puzzle 93]
  • Ratchet and Clank: All4One (playing through with my six year old brother;))
  • Alter Ego (about halfway through, probably knock it out today)

Start and hopefully finish
  • Darksiders
  • The Cave
  • Closure
  • Journey
  • Jamestown

Probably to much for one month, but most of these are pretty short. If anyone wants to join up for some of the multiplayer games, my gamertags are in my signature. And I'd be happy to join any of your guy's groups if you want to add me (assuming I have the game);)

Well April is off to a decent start for me. Just beat Bioshock Infinite. Man oh man, what a game. I should add that the original Bioshock is one of my 5 favorite games ever, and Infinite really didnt disappoint me at all.

Finished up with Critter Crunch yesterday. Some of those puzzles were REALLY hard, but I'm proud of doing it all without a guide;)

Critter Crunch is like one of the two games my girlfriend will actually play, pretty fun puzzle game from what I've played.
