The Backlog

Listed below are the various videogames, books, TV series and films that I have yet to start/complete playing, reading or watching. Please do not be too alarmed. If I was ever trapped in my house during a zombie apocalypse you can be safe in the knowledge that even though I would probably starve to death, so long as the power remained on, I would be highly entertained.

The list was inspired by this blog post that hardly touched my issue of a media backlog.

NOTE: My entire media collection is a joint one between myself and my fiancé, as such this means that half of the items listed are ones that I bought just for myself. The other half have been for both of us and been completed at least by my fiancé (‘course if it’s a novel he’ll probably never read it). As to all the Japanese RPGs listed: unless it’s a Final Fantasy, it’s unlikely that my fiancé will ever play it.

  1. If it wasn’t for the fact that it is true, I would be offended by the last paragraph.

    Half the time, it’s getting in the mood to play some of these games.
