Gaming Bucket List  (Read 821 times)

Over the years I've amassed a huge collection of games, as I'm sure most of you have also done with things like Steam sales and Humble Bundle offers. The problem is, when taking a realistic look at the wealth of titles I realize that there's no feasible way I could play all of them unless I somehow won the lottery and could dedicate the rest of my life to gaming - so I had the idea of putting together a "bucket list" of games that I've been indefinitely putting off to finally get them out of the way.

Maybe I'm alone, but I tend to put off games I know I'll enjoy because I don't want to commit to them knowing I have other things to do - so I've got a pretty long list of games I've avoided playing for years now. Games I'm currently trying to give priority to are:
  • Duke Nukem 3D
  • Final Fantasy Tactics
  • Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
  • .hack// quadrilogy
  • Legacy of Kain/Soul Reaver franchise
  • No One Lives Forever
  • Planescape: Torment
  • Sacrifice
  • Silent Hill
  • Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together
  • Zone of the Enders
Are there any games you've always meant to get around to, but never have? If so, let us know what they are!

I'm sure there are tons of tons of games that would make it onto a list like this for me but theres one game that popped into my head as soon as i read this, a game I've always wanted to play, always hear is amazing and always put off because it would take up a lot of time, and that is Star Ocean on the PS2. I've owned it for 9+ years now and it's still sitting on a shelf sealed in its plastic wrap  :sweat:

Ah man... I have Star Ocean on PS2 as well, bought if from a guy on a SA's equivalent of eBay and had to ask for a refund as I never got it, then it suddenly turned up in my mailbox 6 months later. Had to contact him to pay him again, he seemed pretty surprised that I came out of the blue and returned his cash :p

I wanted to get the PS3 Star Ocean game, but I've heard bad things about it - supposedly it can take upwards of 1000 hours to get the Platinum trophy or something?

Lol you and your platinum  :stoic:  but yea thats what makes these games such time killers, its not beating it that would take time it's the maxing and unlocking of everything and "finishing it" that I just don't know if I have in me haha

Also thats the equivalent of going up to a stranger and saying "hey i thought i this $20 fell out of my pocket 6 months ago but it turns out it was yours, sorry about that, here you go". Good for you but yea, most people aren't that nice these days. A double thumbs up for you, classy move  d-^_^-b
