I've never went plat on a game and thought I would give it a shot on Ghosts.  I need to accomplish this before the first DLC content.  I finished the game on veteran and have one trophy left on single player. 

 

Unfortunately the rest of the trophies are for survival mode which requires others to be on the same page.  I used to play COD with co-workers but they've moved on to the PS4 already.  Random matchups don't really play out too well.

Just finished Dokuro and holy shit it is a long game. Howlongtobeat.com had it at 17 hours and it took me 23 hours using a walkthrough when I was stuck ( and I was stuck a lot) . It is very rare for me to say this, but this game had too much content. There are 15 stages and a boss fight and all the stages have 10 areas, which is a puzzle and you have to escort a princess through most of them. There is a steep increase in difficulty from stage 7-8 but once you reach stage 9 there are only a few puzzles that are difficult to figure out, but they still take quite sometime to complete. This is a tough game to recommend to the average player, because I don't think people have the patience to complete a 17-23 hour Limbo-esque escort game with something around 140-150 puzzles and a tough boss fights. This isn't a game that you can sit down and figure out a room or two and feel like you made progress. I truly believe the type of people that would enjoy Dokuro are the hardest of hardcore puzzle game fans. Some how though, Dokuro doesn't leave you bored and the puzzles and stages have enough of a variety to never really notice any repetition. I have been dying to start Last of Us but my brain is fried from forcing myself to finish Dokuro. I will probably find some action or shooter game and continue watching Dexter, which I just started and I am about to finish season 1. I wish I had started Tales of Xillia already so I could just sit in a field and grind for the next 3 hours until I fall asleep.  Anyway 17 hours off my list even though it took 23. Hope you guys are making some progress.

I finished up Infamous over the weekend.  Honestly, I had a tough time getting through the game.  The gameplay was cool but the characters and story were very boring as well as the city.  Also didnt like enemies superhuman accuracy.  I only beat the story, as I had no interest in getting 100% of the side missions, blast shards (I got 100 or so), dead drops, etc.  Still, I got my value out of the game as I picked up the collection for $20 new at Target a few months back.  I'll still play through Infamous 2 but gonna take a break first.  My next PS3 game will be Uncharted (I just got a PS3 in August so I'm still getting around to most of the exclusives for it).

 

On my 360, I'm currently playing through both Fallout New Vegas (2nd time through, but 1st with all the DLC) and Kingdoms of Amalur.  I'm not really liking Amalur though so may just jump to something else.  I have Dishonored in my queue as well...

I haven't played Infamous in awhile, but it may just be dated by now. I have played the Festival of Blood but haven't started 2 yet. Festival of Blood is a blast, it's about 5-6 hours and it's really dark. Infamous 1 had weird bugs like Cole's head would flip all the way around and I always thought that was pretty funny. I'm interested what it is about Amalur you don't like so far. By no means do you have to like KOA, but I really enjoyed it because it was like playing MMO single player and you don't have to rely on groups of morons to help you out. The start of the game with the gnomes and is way too World of Warcraft-esque and I know that turned off a lot of people, but once you get into the game and you choose your fate it really opens up a truly expansive world.  You have a good list of games you are playing there, they are all pretty long too. Enjoy!

I didnt really encounter any bugs in Infamous at least.  Festival of Blood and 2 are in my backlog as well and I'll probably do those after finishing Uncharted.  I figure I'll rotate the two series (Infamous, Uncharted, Infamous 2, Uncharted 2) to keep my PS3 going.

 

I think my issue with Amalur is the combat seems to be either ridiculously easy or enemies can one-hit 90% of my health.  A lot of the quests and characters just arent grabbing me either.  I dont know why since its similar to Skyrim in that sense but Skyrim hooked me right away.  Havent felt that with Amalur yet.  Of course, I'm only 20 or so hours in, so maybe I just havent done enough in the world yet (on the fifth or so main mission and have done several sidequests).

After 20 hours I think you are able to have a pretty solid opinion on any game really. You are definitely not the first person to say that Amalur hasn't grabbed them.  I commend you on putting in that much time in a game that you aren't particularly enjoying.

That's one of the weird things, it doesnt feel like I've put 20 hours in at all.  I'm sure at least a couple of those are from leaving it on while doing something else in my apartment, but still.

 

I see in your sig you're playing Last of Us, how do you like it so far?  I picked it up on Black Friday and blasted through the story in a week and a half.  Didnt really like the first half but the second half picked it up and the last level is pretty fun.

I am actually glad to hear that about the first half isn't that great because I am on the second chapter ( stage? level?) and while the game is beautiful, the sound is amazing, I don't feel like I am doing much.  I was blown away by the the prologue. They did a fantastic job conveying the emotions of the characters during an outbreak situation and I don't think any other game has really made me feel the feelings I felt during the opening sequence. I find myself walking away from it though and playing other games. Right now I am playing Zombie Tycoon 2 on the Vita, but I will probably start playing Last of Us in little bit later tonight. I am enjoying the scavenging and looking around the world, but it leaves me wanting more of a loot system to make it feel like I was surviving. Not every game needs to be an RPG, but I wouldn't hate walking around the world created. The scenery is phenomenal and while I am usually opposed to upgraded versions of games such as Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, I don't think I would mind seeing a PS4 Last of Us GOTY, if it is a true upgrade.

I found Infamous 2 to be far more boring and tedious than the original. The characters and story were very blah to me. However, Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2 are amazing!

 

I finally beat Killzone Mercanary and Tearaway, so now I can move on to my PS3 backlog; Tales of Xillia here I come!

I just started Xillia too! It is going to be my in between games game because I really don't want to rush through it. I just want hours of mindless grinding in fields while watching movies on netflix. Also Congrats on KZ Mercs and Tearaway. I thought Mercs was a fantastic FPS. Did you play Uncharted 3? I know a lot of people prefer 2, but my favorite was 3, because I felt that they balanced the puzzles and action. Uncharted 1 had a ton of puzzles, Uncharted 2 had something like three or four the entire game and then UC3 was able to find a nice middle ground of both.

Yeah Uncharted 3 was my favorite of the series of well. I thought the story and environment were amazing.

 

As for Tales of Xillia, I absolutely love it, definitely my 2nd favorite Tales game just behind Tales of Symphonia. The game is kinda of slow to start, but once you get going it is really fun. I  also love the orb leveling up system, as well as the improved battle system.

They made some great improvements. As you already mentioned the Orb leveling system works really well, but also the material gathering and shop expanding is something that I absolutely love. Having grade attached to titles rather than quality of battles is something that I really like too.  I am still trying to get used to the linking during battle, so far I haven't found anything negative about it.

I had kind of mixed feelings about the scavenging myself.  I found more than enough to get me through the levels (especially once you get past the first few where you do have to conserve your resources), but I was nowhere near 100% completion for any of them.  I think I found 4 or 5 Firefly Pendants the whole game, lol.  It just wasnt interesting enough to me to go and collect every last item.  To be fair, that happens in most games for me as I usually leave something unfinished (GTA, Arkham riddler trophies/challenges, etc).  I think Mass Effect is the only series where I actively tried to collect EVERYTHING.

 

I found Infamous 2 to be far more boring and tedious than the original. The characters and story were very blah to me. However, Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2 are amazing!

Thats not making me excited for Infamous 2, lol.  But I'm definitely taking a break from that series to focus on Uncharted first.  I played through Uncharted 3 in August (that was when I got my PS3 during a BB sale, came with Uncharted 3 and a year of PS Plus) and really enjoyed it.  Picked up the first 2 during a B1G1 at Gamestop in October I think and am looking forward to starting the first one soon, maybe even tonight.

Just finished Zombie Tycoon 2 on the Vita. I thought it would be a game like running a Zombie Amusement park or business or something (Fuck me right?) and it is most definitely not. It is an RTS game for those who don't know and after the initial learning curve I have to say I had a blast playing it. I have to subtract 4 hours from my backlog list, because that is what it is listed as on Howlongtobeat.com, but it took me way longer than that. I am finding that the times on howlongtobeat.com are running a little on the low side. I play a lot of games and consider myself pretty hardcore, but I am finding that most estimates are at least over 2 hours under what I can finish a game in. Anyway, I enjoyed it quite a bit and maybe once my backlog is under control, I will go back and 100% it.

I started Uncharted 1 last night, really fun so far.  Only a few levels in but very enjoyable and I will have some fun going through it.

 

I'm still trucking along on Amalur, I did another story mission tonight but my interest level is waning for sure.  Another couple days at the most before I set it aside.

Ok... So I am playing Last of Us and I am on chapter 8 and wow, this game is boooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring. The story so far is predictable, the one shot Clicker kills when you are being rushed are annoying, Ellie is a clone of Juno ( Not Ellen Page but specifically Juno) Someone on Gamefaqs summed it up for me pretty well 
The game is good, but it isn't a masterpiece, it isn't perfect, it isn't near perfect, it isn't goty, it isn't gotm, it isn't naughty dogs best, it isn't the ps3s best, it isn't the best zombie game, it isn't the best survival game, it isn't the best anything. 
 

I couldn't agree more with their statement. I am expecting people to tell me that the story is amazing, but with such boring gameplay, I don't even care about the story. I truly tried to immerse myself in Last of Us. I wore my Sony Pulse headphones, I waited for no interruptions in my house ie when everyone is asleep and at times I want to stop playing this game. I planned on getting all the offline trophies, but now I think I am going to do my one playthrough and get rid of it. Out of all the games that I have played this year that were nominated for Goty, I think this is the most disappointing. 

I would also like to say I don't hate the game and there are some really great aspects of the game. The relationship development between Ellie and Joel is fantastic. The banter and conversations are really worth listening to. The game has scared me a couple times, it has a simple enough upgrade system, which is nice in a game like this. It looks beautiful and the world they created is phenomenal, still this doesn't equal game of the year. If it truly is the story that makes this the best overall game, then it deserves story of the year, but not game of the year.  

I don't know why I am surprised that I don't find that Last of Us shouldn't be Goty. I am also the person who disagrees with Journey, Walking Dead, Red Dead Redemption and probably a few more games that just didn't do it for me. I am planning on finishing Last of Us tonight and I hope that by the end the game I completely change my mind, because I really don't want to waste my time with a subpar game that I feel is overrated and will probably mention my feelings about TLoU in more than a few forum posts, that will create some war or have some insults hurdled at me, when I could have played something that I would have liked more. 

Also my GoTY is Bioshock Infinite for those who read this whole post.

Tl;dr version. Last of Us is boring and I don't think it deserves GOTY.

Update:
Finished Last of Us. There were some fun chapters, I won't mention specifics because I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't played it, but overall I am unsatisfied with this game. It is a solid 8, which is a great score, but no way is this game of the year.

It seems like we have similar opinions on games because thats somewhat how I feel about TLOU too.  I think it was a good game for the most part, but nowhere near GOTY status like so many say.  The graphics are amazing but everything else fell quite short of GOTY for me.  I paid $25 for it on Black Friday and was able to sell it for $33 a week and a half later after beating it so I got good value out of the game, but its not one I had any desire to go back to after beating it once.  

 

I havent played Journey yet, but I also had some struggles with Red Dead Redemption and Walking Dead.  I'm still going through Walking Dead but its a little too point and click for me, and while I liked the beginning and end of Red Dead Redemption the middle part in Mexico is VERY dragged out, almost to the point of making you stop playing.  I also just finished Infamous and was very unimpressed. So, maybe some of the more popular and well-reviewed games aren't for me, lol.

If you want fun gameplay play The Last of Us on the highest difficulty. I think its Survival. That makes you play differently. Other than that it is simple but I absolutely loved it. Im a hardcore Bioshock fan and I loved it more than Infinite. Those two and Tomb Raider are in my top 3 for 2013. I may be different from all other gamers in that I NEVER play on normal difficulty or below. I usually start on the highest difficulty. And if you unlock yet a higher difficulty after beating it the first time then I play it again on the highest difficulty. Thats what makes games fun to me. Way to many games are a joke on normal or below including The Last Of Us.

Thanks for the tip. I want to go through it again on Survival+ to get the trophies, but as you can tell by this thread, I am trying to chip away at my backlog and I have already submitted it for trade to amazon for the $20 bonus credit at amazon. I will probably try to go through it again before that time comes.

Thanks for the tip. I want to go through it again on Survival+ to get the trophies, but as you can tell by this thread, I am trying to chip away at my backlog and I have already submitted it for trade to amazon for the $20 bonus credit at amazon. I will probably try to go through it again before that time comes. 

Yea I wasn't trying to down you but Survival forces you to "think" about what you do. That last shiv or few shotgun bullets you have require smart decisions to use if you want to save up and get past hard parts. Also you have no sneaking ability where you here nearby enemies. It really does make a difference. I'm not saying its impossible it just changes the way you play and think while making it more survival realistic. It is fun in my opinion. Whenever you get a chance to try it do so. I think you may like it. It may not change your #1 contender for GOTY but maybe you will enjoy the "survival aspect" more. Because ammo is scarce. I still would not rate it a hard game but definitely fun. :)

Well I loved RE4's professional mode and the more I played through Last of Us the more I felt like it was similiar to Re4. I just was put off by the overwhelming critical response. It bugs me that my opinion was probably affected by the hype, but there has only been a couple games that have ever lived up to it for me like Limbo and Bastion. Anyway, I would also like to welcome you to this topic. I can't speak for everyone else, but I have a great time discussing the games I have been finishing and it has actually been motivating me to finish the games I have.

Since Amalur hasnt been holding my attention well, I decided to add another game from 360 backlog to the currently playing  list.  I started Dishonored tonight.  Only did the first two levels but it seems fun so far, I like the stealth mode so far.  Definitely not gonna play the wholle game without killing some enemies but I hope it plays like Splinter Cell Chaos Theory which I had a lot of fun stealthing enemies during.

I really enjoyed Dishonored. It has a similar art style as Bioshock and you really can't go wrong with that.

I've never went plat on a game and thought I would give it a shot on Ghosts.  I need to accomplish this before the first DLC content.  I finished the game on veteran and have one trophy left on single player. 
 
Unfortunately the rest of the trophies are for survival mode which requires others to be on the same page.  I used to play COD with co-workers but they've moved on to the PS4 already.  Random matchups don't really play out too well.


I did the reverse and finished all the multiplayer/alien extinction trophies first, and now need to finish up veteran. Anywho, you can add me and msg me if you want any help with alien runs, if you see me online on weekends. Just thought I'd offer help.

Self-less plug: anyone have playstation all stars? I need to play a versus match and that game is off the backlog. Kudos to thread creator too, cool idea and hope to read some more tips/advice. My backlog honestly gives me a small amount of anxiety and I think this might help. Cheers all.

So happens that I have All-Stars, just haven't played it yet.

 

One of the toughest challenges on single player COD for me was "They look like ants".  There always seem to be a few units missed on the outskirts that you can't get to before the story progresses.

Haven't posted in awhile and for good reason, I have been attacking my backlog. I recently finished Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken on the Vita and Metro Last Light on the PS3. 

Rocketbirds was a pretty fun title once I got through the first 30 minutes (which were confusing as hell) The game is crazy political, but it has some unique animations and a song that sounds like Beck. Overall it was a weird game, but a lot of fun.

I never played Metro 2033 so I didn't know what to expect with Metro Last Light. It was a nice change from a war shooter and it seemed like it they threw the resistance series in with the Fallout series and this is what came out. I have to admit because my only goal was to finish the game, I threw it on easy (no difficulty trophies) and didn't pay attention to the story in the slightest. The gameplay was good enough to keep me engaged and there were a lot of crazy things going on in the story that I wasn't paying attention to, to really give the user a great experience. To me Metro Last Light was just business. 

I have also been working on Silent Hill: Book of Memories and holy shit this game can be difficult. There isn't a ton of penalties for dying, but at times you just feel under-leveled or under-geared. Now that I have started to get my act together, I am making a good amount of progress and I hope to be done with it tonight.

That game is in my backlog as well, and I just haven't gotten around to it. How is Book of Memories so far? Could be a good selection for me to throw in my bag for the next trip I take.

 

For my part, I am now steadily working my way through Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies. Getting an hour or two in every night. I'm near the end of the third case.

I literally just finished Silent Hill and came here to update my previous post, but I will take this opportunity instead. SH: BoM is overall a pretty good game. I think a 6.5-7.5 review is an adequate judgment of the game. This was either a launch game or launch window game so it deserves a little bit of wiggle room for overall quality. This game was an absolute grind to get through. I recommend having a lot of patience. It could be the character I selected that was overall weak, because in the beginning you make some choices that will determine what sort of character you end up with and you also select a charm that increases some stat. Unfortunately for me the stat the charmed increased was speed and I really don't see much of a point of that. I would almost anything else. I will include some tips that I wish I would have known before starting the game. These are copied and pasted from other sources and if you are interested, please take a look. I don't think any of them are real spoilers, because nothing is story related, but if you want to go into the game blind, feel free to ignore these tips.

Just finished Battlefield 3. The campaign is buggy and generic. I'd go into details, but I don't think anyone would really care. At least that's 6 hours off the backlog. 

Edit: Finished Machinarium. How do people have patience for games like this? If I didn't use a walkthrough, I would be completely lost. Anyway, I may have cheated my way through the game, but when you finish it you get 100% of the trophies. Another 6 hours off the backlog.
