At least, that’s what they say.

Recently, I’m finding that every day that goes by finds another game added to my ever-growing list of “must plays.” Between catching up on my backlog of purchased-yet-untouched games, being a collection whore about games that I really care about (Smash Bros anyone?) and the onslaught of amazing releases that seems like will never come to an end (Why, when I get out of school, do summers suddenly get so sweet??), I feel incredibly overwhelmed with the amount of games being stuffed into my backlog.

Oh, and it doesn’t help that I do this podcast thing where everyone talks about all of the amazing games they’re playing. Doesn’t help one bit.

Probably the only game that will ever truly bring me balance.

>:0 BOOOO!!!!!! (ok ok, sorry, sorry)

So here I am with a growing library of games to play, and I can’t decide for the life of me what I should play next. Should I go for something that I’m personally interested in? Or maybe something unique that the rest of the Pack hasn’t played yet. (Thank you, import games.) Either way I feel like I’m going to be rushing through whatever comes down the pipe, so I thought I’d blog about it and see if I can get any advice back. Here’s a list of games that I need to finish and games I’m waiting to play. Which beauty do you think deserves my attention?

Note: the list is in no particular order

Games I have unfinished business with:

Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions, PSP

Megaman ZX Advent, DS

Rockband, PS3

Games I want to start up:

Final Fantasy XII, PS2

Phoenix Wright 3: Trials and Tribulations, DS

The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass, DS

Gears of War, XBox 360

Bioshock, Xbox 360

(Granted in the meanwhile I’ll be playing a ton of Smash Brothers, there’s no getting around that.)

My goal here is to get through a least a few of these games by April 29th. (Do I need to remind you what comes out then?)

So please respond and let me know what you have to say. I know I could have put this up on the message board, but I figured I’d take the chance to be selfish and see exactly how many people read my blog anyway. Thanks everyone!

Oh, and I’ll have my impressions of whatever the winner is in next week’s blog.

Thanks guys!
