Pile Of Shame: Dave’s Backlog

As I sit here on a lunch break from training, I can’t help but to think of games. So many games. Most of all though are the games I’ve yet to finish. It’s a big pile. A shameful pile, indeed. It got me thinking of a new feature/challenge to myself, to finally own up and get these damn games done! I have ADD when it comes to games. When I see the new shiny one that is out on the shelf, I need it. No matter what I was playing before, whether I’ve completed it or not, I drop it. Sad, but true. This needs to stop! Now it will (hopefully). I’ll list off my pile of shame and one by one we will get through them together. I need the motivation from you to keep me on my path and not stray away to the new shiny thing that’s on Best Buys shelf!


Let’s take a look at the pile, starting with the Xbox 360 titles. As you will soon see while it is a pile, and why so shameful.

  • Gears of War 3
  • Forza Horizon
  • Far Cry 3
  • Need For Speed: Most Wanted (2012 Edition)
  • Assassins Creed: Brotherhood
  • Max Payne 3
  • Forza 4
  • Halo Anniversary Edition (I did beat it on the original Xbox!)
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Battlefield 3
  • Prototype
  • Alan Wake
  • Too Human (Yep, that’s right. This game was great!)
  • Bulletstorm
  • Red Faction: Guerrilla
  • Skyrim
  • Assassins Creed 2
  • Fallout: New Vegas
  • BioShock 2
  • Crackdown 2

Umm, so yeah… I told you it was a pile. That’s just 360 games! Now, on to the PS3. Now, hear me out. I had a healthy PS3 till one day the Blu-ray drive decided to crap out on me. I just recently picked up a new PS3 to finally work on this pile.

  • God of War Collection
  • Portal 2
  • Dead Space 3 (Currently playing!)
  • Uncharted 3
  • InFamous
  • 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand (Yup.)

Well, this pile isn’t so bad is it? Now, on to PC. This pile is quite big just because of Steam and its sales, and to the Humble Bundles. Damn them for being so good.

  • Darksiders
  • Metro 2033
  • Bastion
  • Saints Row: The Third
  • Company of Heroes
  • Grid
  • Diablo 3
  • Torchlight 2

Finally, on to the handhelds, I’ll include both PS Vita, and 3DS titles here.

  • Assassins Creed: Liberaton
  • Pokemon Black v2
  • Little Big Planet Vita
  • Mortal Kombat

Well, there you have it. This list is way too long, and I need to fix this! One at a time, I hope to slay this pile of shame. I’ll keep you all in the loop on a weekly basis to tell you how things are going, and when we can throw parties for each game I cross off my list!

First off, Gears of War 3


I ripped through Gears 2 like it was nothing. It had me completely hooked and I could not put it down. Gears 3 is great, don’t get me wrong. It just didn’t grab me like Gears 2 did. I recently played some co-op with Mark and had a blast with it. It made it jump to the top of my list to finish first! I’m pretty far into it, So I am hoping it wont take too long to finally cross this one off my list.

Do you have a pile of shame? Is it bigger than mine? I doubt it, so if it is, let us know!

    Oh Dave….that is just shameful! But it has inspired me to do the same….

    • I know :( It’s bad, but one by one, I shall slash these games off! P.S. We should play some Gears later :)

  • I have been working on my big pile of shame for some time, Most recently I completed Halo 4 and Tranformers: War for Cybertron. Both were great games. That were long overdue some quality time. Today I’m home with only my laptop so I’ll probably start something from the THQ humble bundle or perhaps even the god awful Duke Nukem Forever. That would be good for a laugh.

    I admit Dave, that’s a pretty brutal list pal. Mine isn’t nearly as extensive, but I’ve always had quams with owning a game and not beating it. My list hasn’t ever been overly huge. But there are even a couple of no-no’s on my own.

    -Tales of Vesperia

    -Final Fantasy XIII
    -Final Fantasy X
    -Assassins Creed

    -The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
    -Super Mario Galaxy 2

    -StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty

    And sadly, I don’t own a handheld gaming platform currently (looking to change that soon), and since clearing Angry Birds 100% isn’t possible without breaking my iPhone from rage, I won’t count it. I also never beat Duke Nukem: Forever. I don’t lose sleep over that.
