Player vs. Backlog: The Games

I entered January 2019 with 31 games left unplayed in my backlog and the goal to finally hit zero. I explain the rules in another post. In 2018 I completed 51 games, which is to say nothing of the other games I played but did not complete. This post hosts the regularly updated list of games I have yet to play in 2019 as I try to reach zero. I’ll also be posting my thoughts on each game I play in regular digests.

COMPLETED = finished the main story/campaign
PLAYED = played enough, don’t expect to finish or don’t know what counts as finishing

*(Game series that were purchased in a multipack counts as only one game. These days if a game is only available in a multipack, I just don’t buy it.)
