Later Levels and Livid Lightning came up with #LoveYourBacklog where you display a badge of how many games you own and discuss some of your backlogged games!

So here’s my badge of backlogged games!


I do not have too many games backlogged, but I do have a lot of games I need to finish!

Game Most Likely to Never be Played

All of them I have played a little bit of so I’ll go with the one I will most likely have trouble finishing. That would go to Pokemon Y because that was my first Pokemon game on the Nintendo 3DS and I have actually never finished a Pokemon game!

Shortest Game

This is a tough one because I am a fan of RPGs so a lot of my games on my backlog are super long! I believe my shortest is Luigi’s Mansion for the Nintendo 3DS because it is supposed to be short!

Longest Game

Again another tough one because I love RPG’s. I’lll go with Xenoblade Chronicles 3D for the Nintendo 3DS! It definitely feels long because I actually had to restart playing the game. I had unfortunately not spent enough time trying to learn the mechanics and made the game super hard on myself. I decided to restart and focus more on leveling up my character and learning the mechanics so I would not get stuck in the game!

Game Which has Spent the Most Time on the Backlog

This also goes to Pokemon Y for the Nintendo 3DS! I played a lot of this game since it was my first game for the Nintendo 3DS, but Pokemon games are so long that it may take me a while to beat it. I also keep getting distracted by other games!

The Person Responsible For Adding the Most Entries to Your Backlog

This would be my college best friend! He has recommended a lot of games to me that have added to my backlog! It’s nice to have someone to discuss games with!

I just realized as I finished my list that all these games are from my Nintendo 3DS! I really love the system and this one was my first venture into playing handheld console games since the Game Boy Advanced I had as a child which was a long time ago!

Games I Loved This Year

I wanted to start the new year by talking about the games I loved that were released in 2018

Nintendo 3DS Games

Detective Pikachu

I loved this game! It was a lovely puzzle game that made me smile! I also loved Detective Pikachu as a character and even got the cute amiibo at launch! I am hoping that this game gets a sequel!

PlayStation 4 Games

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

I got this as soon as I finished Assassin’s Creed: Origins. I love the RPG mechanics and getting to choose the events of the story. I can see why this game is loved and I am looking forward to finishing it this year!

Spyro Reignited Trilogy

I have always wanted to play the Spyro games so I was really excited to play this game! I am still on the first game, but I love it so far! It’s so much fun and just a joy to play! I love Spyro’s personality and the game is adorable!

Yakuza Kiwami 2

This game had a really amazing final boss! I also enjoyed the twists that the story took and the hilarious substories!

Yakuza 6

I enjoyed seeing the end of Kiryu’s story! I also loved the substories in this game such as rescuing all the stray cats so they could live at a cat cafe and be fed by Kiryu! The game had an emotional finale that brought the story to an emotional conclusion.

Nintendo Switch Games

Bayonetta 2

While this game is a port of an older game, I still consider it to be a 2018 release especially since this was the first time I was able to experience the game! I enjoyed seeing more of Bayonetta and loved the story!

Just Dance 2019

I loved this game because I enjoy dancing and was excited for it after playing Just Dance 2018! I enjoy playing it when I feel dancing and find it to be a fun and relaxing game!

Octopath Traveler

I also still need to finish this one, but I have loved what I have played so far! I think it is a visually stunning game with a great soundtrack! I also enjoy that every character has their own story you can follow! I look forward to seeing everyone’s story as I play more of the game!

Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu

I love what I have played of this game so far! It is different from previous Pokemon games, but I do not find the differences that were made such as an emphasis on catching Pokemon instead of fighting them! I am hoping to beat all the gym leaders with my Pikachu!

Super Smash Bros Ultimate

This was the perfect game to play during the Holiday weekend. I have unlocked a lot of the characters but still have more to go! I have played through World of Light, but mostly enjoy Classic mode! I am looking forward to playing this game with friends! I showed my family this game and they were enjoying it!

The World Ends With You: Final Remix

I knew nothing about this game before I played it, but it was phenomenal! I loved the story and the unique soundtrack! This was an amazing game to play and I highly recommend playing this game if you have not played it yet!

PC Games

Shining Resonance Refrain 

This game is a lot of fun! I love music and dragons so it was a match made it heaven for me! I am still playing through the story, but so far it is a fun game that makes me smile!

Bonus: Getting a Wii U in 2018

I was really glad I got a Wii U! Yes I have the Switch, but I also wanted a Wii U! I really wanted to play The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD. I am also enjoying Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE!

Game of the Year

This year I am going to split this one in two. Because one game I have completed and the other game still needs to be finished.

The game that I finished that wins Game of the Year is Yakuza 6 for it’s gripping story and substories!

The game that I still need to be finished that also wins Game of the Year based on what I have played is Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey for being an amazing RPG with a rich world and intriguing story where I can choose the outcomes of the story!

What games did you love playing in 2018 and what is your Game of the Year?
