If you're anything like me, you've probably got a huge collection of games that you've always wanted to play but just haven't gotten around to doing so yet. Some of these may be games you bought at some point and haven't touched, and some may be games that you've heard a lot about and are interested in playing. Whatever the case, posting a big fat list of games may just give you the motivation to start playing some of them.

Games I Don't Own But Really Should:
-literally every Ace Attorney game after PW:AA
-literally any Fire Emblem other than FE:A
-999 and VLR but i can probs nick them off my sister's boyfriend

Games I Do Own But Should Finish:
-Bravely Default
-Kingdom Hearts. Yeah I know it's my fave series and I still haven't beaten the first one.
-literally any mainseries Pokemon game that isn't X. Or Diamond.
-the buttload of Harvest Moon games I keep getting distracted from

Games I need to Rebeat/100%

this list is by no means complete


A chickadee in love with the sky
Games I Do Own But Should Finish:
Doooo it! So great :D

I'm pretty proud of myself - most of the games I have, I've finished. I always like knowing that I've finished one game before I start a new one. There are just a few that I haven't completed, and I think the list goes something like this:

-Lost Magic (Nintendo DS)
-Final Fantasy I & II (GBA) (I kinda bought this wanting to get into the FF series, and figured I'd start with the first one because I like order, but I'm feeling like I should have started with another game...)

...That might actually be it. There's probably a few more that I'm forgetting about. I have a number of point-and-click adventure computer games that I haven't finished or started, but that's a whole different genre.

As far as games I'd like to find/start:

-Soul Silver
-Black 2 or White 2 I haven't actually played any mainstream games since Emerald and I'm kinda sad about that!
-Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
-Fire Emblem
-Golden Sun
-Lots of other things that seem popular


I swear I'm cool you have to believe me
-Final Fantasy I & II (GBA) (I kinda bought this wanting to get into the FF series, and figured I'd start with the first one because I like order, but I'm feeling like I should have started with another game...)
1 and 2 aren't good at all to start at. 1 is ancient and 2 is the worst in the franchise, being an experiment gone awry. Start with the SNES or GBA version of 4.

As for me, I usually keep my video game list short to prevent backlog.

Games I need to get:

KH 1.5 and 2.5

Games I need to play:

Mother 3, Persona Q

Games I should replay:

Shadow of the Colossus because why the fuck not


Says "also" and "or something" a lot
A few years ago I bought 9 or so Tomb Raider games in a steam sale.

I've only beaten the first one so far. I just got back from completing another level in the second. Not sure how many years in the future it'll be before I beat them all.

[*] all MGS games after the third one
That's another series I want to get into. I asked in the thread here on the Elder Scrolls and Fallout whether they're series you have to play previous ones to understand.
I'm fairy certain that MGS is one of the series so if I wanted to appreciate the series I should play some of the earlier ones first.
I don't have a Playstation though :(

Story is definitely important in MGS games. You can start with MGS1, since the MSX Metal Gear games aren't necessary at all to play and a lot of the plot is explained in MGS1 (and you can just read like a one-paragraph plot description of them - the MSX games aren't very long). You can also start with MGS3, since it's the first in the series chronologically.

If you play them by release date, you would play like this:

Metal Gear (entirely optional)
Metal Gear 2 (entirely optional)
Metal Gear Solid
Metal Gear Solid 2
Metal Gear Solid 3
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (also optional)
Metal Gear Solid 4
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes (really short)
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

But you can also play chronologically like this:

Metal Gear Solid 3
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops (optional)
Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain
Metal Gear (optional)
Metal Gear 2 (optional)
Metal Gear Solid
Metal Gear Solid 2
Metal Gear Solid 4

(I haven't played even MG1, MG2, or Portable Ops)

Though if you don't have any generation of Playstation, it may be hard to play them. All the games except 4 are on Xbox 360, iirc. And there is the GameCube remake of Metal Gear Solid 1, "The Twin Snakes".
