The 2024 Backlog Challenge

Reed Rothchild

Recommended Posts

Editorials Team · Posted

We all have gigantic backlogs, right?  Dozens of games.  Hundreds of games.  Thousands of games.  We've always wanted to play our dusty copy of Dragon Warrior 2, because everyone tells us it's a stone-cold classic. 

But who has the time, right?

Well, we made the time in 2021 (and 2022 and 2023).  And some of us nailed it.  Some of us did rather well.  Some of us put in a respectable effort.  And some people completely failed.

Welcome to Round Two Three Four.  Apply whatever necessary lessons learned from previous years, and good luck.

  • Participating users will create an initial post with a list of games that they want to finally beat in 2024.
  • The list can be as big or small as you want.  5 games?  Fine.  10 games?  Better.  25 games? Go for it.  50 games?  You're a crazy person, but I believe in you.
  • Please use that same post to make updates and track your progress throughout the year.  That way it will be much easier to see how everyone is doing.  You can still make new posts to notify everyone of updates, or discuss whatever you want, but let's have everyone track their progress in each of their OP.
  • What constitutes 'beating' a game?  That's up to you.
  • What games are in scope?  All of them.
  • Can you amend your list later?  Try not to.  I mean, I won't stop you, but this is the backlog challenge.  Not the "What Games Have you Beat Recently" thread.  Try not to change it.
  • Try to have your list together by January 1st.  Once it's posted and the new year begins, consider it final.
  • Also, you may find this helpful:

Most of my game time this year went towards the N64 topic. Thanks to that I haven't played much on the PS5 I bought yet. In 2024 I also want to push the Gamecube topic a bit. I have some games I definitely want to beat, but I don't want to pin down everything for the year and stuff for completion topics is also dependant on what others beat.
My goals for 2024 (16/35):

Beat 10 Gamecube games for the topic

  1. PN03
  2. Lost Kingdoms 2
  3. King Kong
  4. Spyro: A Hero's Tail
  5. Ultimate Spider-Man
  6. 1080 Avalanche
  7. Zapper
  8. The Incredibles
  9. 2 more

Beat 10 games for any completion topic (this could be more Gamecube)

  1. Gregory Horror Show (PS2)
  2. Pokemon Blue
  3. 8 more

Beat 5 games on PS5

  1. The Last of Us 2
  2. Sackboy
  3. A Plague Tale: Innocence
  4. Bugsnax
  5. 1 more

Beat 5 games on PC

  1. Baldur's Gate 3
  2. Outer Wilds: Echoes of the Eye
  3. Epistory: Typing Chronicles
  4. Aperture Desk Job
  5. Ghost Recon Wildlands

Beat 5 games that don't fit in the categories above

  1. Deadpool
  2. Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
  3. Psychonauts (XBOX)
  4. Batman Arkham Knight
  5. A Short Hike

2023 was a bust for me, but I liked the idea of 40 games to choose from.  However, I think I want to expand into other parts of my library, so I'm gonna cut my list of NES games down to 10, and pick 30 others from the rest of my backlog -5 each from some of my largest libraries, plus 5 randoms from my smaller ones.  All will be games I've yet to play through but pique my interest for one reason or another.  Anyway, here goes...

Bandai Golf Challenge: Pebble Beach
Bionic Commando
Desert Commander - January 28
Dragon Warrior III
Ghoul School
Godzilla 2 - January 31
King's Quest V
Magic of Scheherazade, The - January 4
Mission Impossible

Final Fantasy III
Genghis Khan II: Clan of the Grey Wolf
Lufia & the Fortress of Doom
Spider-Man/Venom: Separation Anxiety
Wizardry V: Heart of the Maelstrom 

Aidyn Chronicles: The First Mage
Donkey Kong 64
Ogre Battle 64
Pokemon Snap
Shadowgate 64

Dungeons & Dragons: Warriors of the Eternal Sun
Might & Magic: Gates to Another World
Mutant League Hockey
Romance of the Three Kingdoms III: Dragon of Destiny

Armored Core
Board Game: Top Shop
Front Mission 3
Shanghai: True Valor

Asterix & Obelix Kick Buttix
Fire Pro Wrestling Returns
Hobbit, The
Rogue Galaxy
Wizardry: Tale of the Forsaken Land

Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Still Life

Xbox 360 (full achievement completions):
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Two Worlds II
Warriors Orochi 3
X-Men Destiny

Darkened Skye (GameCube)
Dungeons & Dragons: Order of the Griffon (TG-16)
Quest of the Rings, The (Odyssey 2)
Record of Lodoss War (Dreamcast)
Tower of Doom (Intellivision)

Hopefully this list gives me more to choose from if I decide I don't feel like playing NES for 11 months again 😛

Edit: Decided to add a couple more systems and increase the total to 50 games.

I'm in again.  I'll be working on my list soon, but I'll probably repopulate the list with all the games I failed to clear off the past backlogs.  There are just too many super long RPG's lol.

New for the 2024 backlog:

  1. Return to Monkey Island (PS5) - Finished 1/11
  2. Spider-man 2 (PS5)  - Finished the story on 1/1, Platinum trophy on 1/6
  3. Super Mario Bros. Wonder (SWI) - Finished on 1/7
  4. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (PS5)
  5. Dragon's Dogma II (PS5) - Finished on 4/17. Platinum on 5/6
  6. Final Fantasy XVI - two DLC packs (PS5)

Unfinished from 2021:

  1. Earthbound (SNES)
  2. Legend of Zelda Oracle of Ages (GBC) - already about 50% through this
  3. Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons (GBC)
  4. Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword (SWI)
  5. Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age (PS4)
  6. Ys VIII Lacramosa of Dana (PS4)
  7. Metroid Return of Samus (3DS) - I was so stuck on where to go next

Unfinished from 2022:

  1.  Super Mario Land (GB)
  2. Star Fox 2 (SNES)
  3. Golden Axe Warrior (SMS)
  4. Alisia Dragoon (GEN)
  5. Luigi's Mansion 3 (SWI) - Finished 1/17
  6. Neutopia (TG16)
  7. Castlevania Mirror of Fate HD (PS3)
  8. Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning (PS4)
  9. Guardians of the Galaxy (PS5)

List is only 21 22 games long, but some are still long RPG's.  I put some new releases for 2024 on here too, because I know I'll be playing those and don't want to feel I'm neglecting the list.

-2024 BACKLOG-

Goal: Finish 40 games (10% of my physical library), and make a "T-Pac Arcade" video for each one.

Criteria: Finishing the game by any means necessary. Save-states, turbo / slow-motion controllers, guides / walkthroughs, and any built-in exploits are fair game. (The only exception is no external cheat codes like Game Genie inputs).
For high-score games, I'll just play until I've got a solid, holistic impression of the game - no need to roll the score or get to a kill-screen or anything.

Game Selection: Mostly titles from my collection that I've spent little to no time playing before, with an emphasis on historically important / well-regarded games.

1. Adventure Island [NES]
2. Axelay [SFC]
3. Berzerk [Atari 2600

My short list is extremely long this year because I still didn't like some of the limitations I had in 2023 even though I expanded things.

Big changes for 2024: smaller goal. 50 games was close to attainable, but it ate all my free time. I really want to have the freedom to go after several really long games this year, rather than bounce between shorter ones in order to stay on track. So, I'm reducing the goal to 30 total with no console specific goals this time.

Also, There are still 3 games that were holdovers from 2022 that I didn't finish in 2023. Some I still didn't start. Those are MUST BEAT titles in order to consider the year a success.  The other stuff carried over from 2023 are still just general population for now.

Aside from longer games, my main focuses will be: Beat the Wii U & DS/3DS - Those console lists contain just about every single unbeaten game I own for those platforms. Maybe next year I can finish a console or two completely.  The steam list is massive. I put a ton of point & click stuff, several Nancy Drews (there's over 30 to get through so gotta knock out a chunk), and a bunch of more recent FMV stuff I'm curious about.

Of course aside from these, I'll still be working through my Game Boy and CDi challenges but there's no set list as those are selected through polls.

Beat 30 Games Total from the long list below - Current Progress 12/30
Challenge is not complete until the MUST BEAT games are done - 3 Remaining

MUST BEAT IN 2024: Metroid
Alien Syndrome (Tengen)
Bad Dudes
Cabal (as solo player)
F1: Built to Win
Goonies II
Iron Tank
Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu
Journey to Silius
Kid Niki
Little Nemo Dream Master

I have seen this thread for many years and thought I should post with you.  My problem is that my backlog list has many different faces.  The entire list would be impossible to complete in a year even if I was independently wealthy and did nothing but play games.

Anyway, I typically generate two to four sub-lists during the year when I know I will have a lot of time off work to play.  Posting the whole list or even trying to decide on a 2024 list might just depress me . . .

Anyway, here are some games that would be near the top of my various lists

  • Playstation - Spider-Man, Tetris Effect
  • Wii & Wii U - Metroid Prime remakes and any Xenoblade (Xenogears) game
  • Xbox - Red Dead 2, Cyberpunk, Control (I have physical copies)
  • Handheld - GTA Chinatown, Mario and Luigi Bowser's Inside Story
  • Classics on orig hardware - Starflight, DK Country

There are just so many that usually what I do is try to get down to 5 games that I want to play in a given time period.  I am conscious to mix genres so that I am not playing multiple examples of the same genre at the same time.  For example, I started these 5 games not too long ago.  I've finished 3 and plan to finish them all before 2024


  • Wandersong 


  • Escape From Monkey Island 
  • Ico 


  • Dead Space 3 
  • Fallout New Vegas

In any case, I will find some way to come and participate with you folks because we are certainly like-minded in our efforts.  Unless of course you tell me not to.

Dang. Like most people here, I'm probably just gonna port my list from last year to this year. I did play a couple more games that weren't on my list but I didn't get through as much of the actual list as I would've liked. I've found I'm struggling with the lack of "hype"/an attraction point with some of the games (my off list stuff were newer gets like Super Mario Wonder or Live a Live, games that had something I was looking forward to experiencing). It's not even necessarily tied to the game quality since my list was a mix of some solidly average games and some very well received games, I just don't have the motivation that says hey go play this game instead of shiny new game.

* Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked - started, about 20 hours in - 43hr expected
* Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaire's Conspiracy - done
* Style Savvy: Fashion Forward - not started - 20hr? expected
* Boxboy Collection - not started - 5hr expected each, so 15hr total
* Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (as part of Ace Attorney Trilogy) - done
* Shin Megami Tensei IV - not started - 43hr expected
* The Legend of Legacy - not started - 31hr expected
* Fragrant Story - not started - 11hr expected
* Bit. Trip Saga - not started - 17hr? expected. Most of the games have very low confidence times on HowLongToBeat and I might struggle with them anyway lol
* Attack of the Friday Monsters - not started - 5hr expected

* Ni no Kuni: Dominion of the Dark Djinn - done
* Inazuma Eleven 2 - done

* Return of the Obra Dinn - done
* Harvestella - done
* Disgaea 4 Complete+ - not started - 36hr expected
* Trials of Mana - not started - 20.5hr expected
* Collection of Mana - not started - 40hr? expected (not playing Trials of Mana since I have the remake as well)
* Persona 3 Portable - not started - 65hr expected, though I probably won't have it in hand for a while.
* Super Mario RPG - still need to get - 20hr expected
* Baten Kaitos I & II - still need to get - 90hr expected?

List isn't final, I need to double check the state of my backlog right now. Is it cheating to list games I'll probably buy + play within the year?

My 2023 backlog challenge was unfortunately a failure. But I remain hopeful that next year I'll be able to knock out a good chunk of my actual gaming backlog. I'll update this list in the upcoming weeks, but here's my first attempt. I basically chose a bunch of NES games that I'd like to play for next year's NES challenge including a bunch of games that I've never played or finished. I then added most of the Famicom exclusive games in my collection. Rummaging through my box of cartridge-only games, I also found a bunch of games that I forgot I even had.

Edit: I've been highlighting certain games that have a higher priority for me or that I've been wanting to beat or re-complete really badly. I think that this might make my choice a bit easier on what to play exactly when the new year rolls around.

Last year I successfully focused on beating a specific monetary amount of games and games in high-profile, popular franchises that I'd never beaten before. However, over the last two years, it's become abondantly clear that I've neglected certain consoles.

To alleviate that issue, my goals this year are to:

  • Beat 75 games. (52 of 75)
  • Beat (50 of 50) games combined on the following consoles, and at least one game on each console:

    • PS26
    • PSP1

my 2023 list did OK, but i really faltered in my modest PSX subset. i'd still like to give MGS an honest chance, but i probably won't do that. or at least not any time soon.

so let me just throw a bunch of games at the proverbial wall and see what i can knock off:

Wario World (GCN)  COMPLETED 12/29/2023
Wario Land: Shake It (Wii) COMPLETED 1/6/24

Mighty No. 9 (Wii-U) COMPLETED 1/15/24
Mega Man 9 (Wii eShop)
Mega Man 10 (Wii eShop)

Super Mario Bros. 3 e-Reader levels (Wii-U eShop)
Super Princess Peach (DS) COMPLETED 1/26/24
Mario vs Donkey Kong 4: Mini-Land Mayhem (DS)  COMPLETED 1/16/24

Awesome Possum (Genesis)
Knuckles Chaotix (32x)
Revenge of Shinobi (Genesis)
Cuphead (Switch)
Dark Void Zero (DS eShop)

Wow December was a blur. I did some pruning from last years list. Some games I just didn’t care for and added quite a few more titles! 

Marble Madness
Zelda II: Adventures of Link

Super Mario RPG
Kirby’s Dreamland 3 Finished 2-27
Super Metroid 

Nintendo 64
Banjo Tooie
Conker’s Bad Fur Day
Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

Pokémon Red/Blue 151
Super Mario Advance 2 Finished 2-22
Super Mario Advance 4 Finished 2-15

Playstation 2
Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories 

Pikmin 2 Finished 2-12

Pikmin 3 Finished 2-1
Super Mario Wonder Finished 1-20

I think this is a good start and a doable list. Can’t wait to try some titles I’ve been wanting to try for so long.
