The End of another Generation (aka The Unplayed Pile of Shame)


We're closing out another generation so it's time to take a look at the gaming pile and the likelihood of ever getting to them all. With the new hotness on the way, it's easy to just move on, but here we can immortalize our shame and look back to see if we actually got through the end of cycle pile.

I'm sticking to games I paid for and haven't even touched. I'm not including PS+, Gold or GamePass games or games I started but didn't finish. Just strictly games that I spent money on that have seen zero gameplay minutes.

PS4
Uncharted 4
Days Gone
Borderlands 3
Assassin's Creed: Odyssey
Man of Medan
Erica
Life is Strange 2
Resident Evil
Ghost of Tsushima
Cyberpunk 2077

10 doesn't seem too bad compared to previous generations. It helps that I went through and hit the unplayed pile pretty hard a couple years back. Still some big games I need to get to. I don't see myself skipping any except for maybe Assassin's Creed. I tried to like this series multiple times but I still haven't found one I like yet. So that's at the bottom of the pile. Borderlands 3 sounds daunting compared to the others.

I still have unplayed original Xbox games. I imagine my 360 will crap out before I ever get around to them.

Re: The End of another Generation (aka The Unplayed Pile of Shame)

I have a bunch of smaller titles on PSN that I've bought on sale and will eventually play but not counting those the big ones I haven't gotten too are:

Rise of the Tomb Raider
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
The Walking Dead: The Final Season

I'm pretty anti-Telltale at this point so I doubt I'll ever play The Walking Dead but I'll definitely get to the Tomb Raider games. I replayed through the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition this year in preparation to knock out these two.

I've got alot; dozens, and that runs into the previous generation too. That said, I'm starting an intensive two year program for a career change in August, so I wouldn't have bought either of the next gen consoles anyway until I'm done. So whatevs.

Surprisingly, I have none! The only games Iíve paid for or gotten as gifts that remain unplayed or unfinished are all on the Switch.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is great. Improves on what they started with Tomb Raider 2013 in nearly every way. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a step backwards and kind of a letdown. More of the same, but not in a good way. Easily the worst of the trilogy. Not a bad game, just not a great one.

I really don't have an un-played pile because I never buy a game I'm not ready to play at that time. However, there are games on Game Pass I have been meaning to play and haven't gotten to like RDR2.

My wall of shame also dates back to the late-2000s, where I originally purchased an Xbox360 to play GTA4. I purchased a few other xbox360 games, just to find out the hard way I was never quite able to figure out how to use the controller properly. I never got beyond the first few missions in GTA4.

The only reason I ever purchased an Xbox360 in those days, was largely due reading a lot of reviews about how the pc version of GTA4 was a complete botch job which required a very fast then-current computer in order to get decent framerates which didn't flicker. If the pc version of GTA4 wasn't a botch job, most likely I would have never purchased an Xbox360.

I have a lot of good 360 and PS3 games I’d still like to take a shot at. I played the heck out of the original Resistance and bought the next two but don’t think I ever played them.

Re: The End of another Generation (aka The Unplayed Pile of Shame)

I have games from Ps2,Xbox, Ps3, 360, Wii, Ps4 and X1 to tide me over until the PS5 drops to 300 so thankfully my overbuying will come in handy. I have about 100-150 games I have never played in total. and about 50 I started but never finished.

Re: The End of another Generation (aka The Unplayed Pile of Shame)

While the UI and Quality Of Life changes of this generation have been fantastic.....from a gaming perspective I definitely think this generation was sub-par compared to the last one.

Pre-Orders:

Ghost Of Tsushima (PS4)
Cyberpunk 2077 (PS4)

PS4:

One Way Heroics (I was stupidly into Limited Run Games for a short bit)
Jotun (I was stupidly into Limited Run Games for a short bit)
N++ (I was stupidly into Limited Run Games for a short bit)
The Evil Within 2
Danganronpa 1 + 2 Reload
World Of Final Fantasy
Secret Of Mana

X-Box One:

Killer Instinct Definitive Edition
Rare Replay
