It's That Time Again, Gaming To-Do List Check-In

It's time to check in once again on my gaming to-do list.  I've loved this idea ever since a fellow blogger brought it up in the middle of Blaugust this year.  It's a good way to make a plan and keep tabs on the games I intend to play.

So, let's check in for the first time since September.  Here's my current list:
  • Fallout 4 - At the time I'm writing this post Fallout 4 isn't out yet, but by the time it's published we should be a couple days into the craziness of Fallout 4 launch.  I hope I like it.  I'm looking forward to exploring the world![adding to list]
  • StarCraft II Legacy of the Void - StarCraft II is still my favorite RTS ever and the latest expansion should come out two days before this post goes live.  I'm interested to see how the campaign plays out and I'll probably end up giving online multiplayer another shot too.[adding to list]
  • Star Wars Battlefront - I played the beta every day this game was available.  I'm so excited to get my hands on the final product!  This is quickly going to become a new evergreen game for me.[adding to list]
  • Persona 4 Golden - I still need to make time for this one.  I will.  I promise.
  • FFX-2 - I will make time for this one too, it just hasn't happened yet.
  • Super Mario Maker - I've loved my time with it.  I'm still playing it here and there so I'm leaving it on the list for now.
And here's what's being removed from the list since last time, and why:
  • Hearthstone - The luster has faded.  I played this a ton for months on end, but I'm out of the habit now.  I'm removing this from the list but expect to see it again next time there's an expansion.[removing from list]
  • Fire Emblem Awakening - Realistically I don't think I'll get back to this game before the next 3DS Fire Emblem comes out, so I'm removing it and I plan on jumping into the newest Fire Emblem right away when it launches in the west.[removing from list]
  • Star Wars Uprising - I was really disappointed with this and stopped playing after a couple days.[removing from list]
  • Disney Infinity - I loved the Star Wars playsets but I haven't touched the game since completing them.  I'll definitely dive back in next time a new playset grabs my attention.[removing from list]
  • Steam Game Catch-Up - I caught up on all the Steam games I wanted to.  This was just a convenient catch-all.[removing from list]
  • Fall Releases - Another convenient catch-all.  I've played a ton of fall releases and all the ones I'm still playing or plan to have their own entry now.[removing from list]
This fall has been crazy with game releases I've looked forward too.  In a fluke of getting sick at the right time (not that it's ever the right time to get sick) I've actually kept up with all the Fall releases and I've been able to finish games and then dive into new ones on day one when they come out.  This is the first time I can remember that happening in years.

I'm super happy with my current list.  It's not too long and I expect good things from all the games on it.

It's just nice to step back every once in awhile and assess what games are making me happy, which aren't, and what I'm looking forward to putting time into.


  1. I'd re-do my list, as I haven't updated it in a while, but it's pretty much Fallout 4 all the time. I still dabble with some multiplayer/competitive games but my main fix has been Fallout. It makes me want to play all the other deep RPGs in my library too... but that itch will probably be sated by the time I feel I'm "finished" with the game.

    1. Yeah, I'm in full out Fallout 4 mode right now too. I'm trying to get in as much of it as I can this weekend because I know I'll start getting distracted once Battlefront comes out next week. But Fallout 4 has so much content, it could tide a person over for a long time.
