Back Catalog Project

Back in 2009 I decided it would be a good idea for me to take a quick inventory of all the video games I had and make a big list of the games I hadn’t finished.

That list ended up being about 200 games long.

Since then I’ve tried to make an effort to chip away at it, without a lot of success. I’m posting the list here for posterity, and as I cross off games (if I cross off games…) I’ll make note of it here. At one point I had a vague plan of doing video commentaries on each and every game (hence the “project” part) and even bought the equipment to start doing it. This is still in the cards, depending on how tolerable the time consumption is.

The list below goes through 2010. I’ll add the past 5 years as I go along. At the time I pulled the release dates from a variety of sources such as Mobygames, Wikipedia, and news sites. I blame them for any inaccuracies, obviously.

Note: the links below are Amazon affiliate links to the games listed.
