I've played video games ever since I can remember. My fondest memories are playing Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time on the SNES with my brother, but that's all negligible stuff next to my love for music. If it's music, chances are I find some way to love it, and I take in anything I can. I play multiple instruments, and I guarantee you I have better music taste than anyone you know. Oh, and I'm also pretty opinionated.

So, backlogging games is kind of inevitable anymore with all these awesome games coming out at a pretty speedy pace. This has lead to quite a handsome build-up of games I still haven't gotten to play through even once, because every opportunity I would have had is filled by something new and shiny. This blog is my list of backlogged games and what exactly about them is "backlogged" since I'm a multiple play-through kind of guy. I'll also have the regular rotation of games I have that tend to rob me of backlog time. If anyone has suggestions about what to approach next as I likely haven't even been through the halfway point of the majority of these games, feel free to "win me over" if you like.

Writing that out makes me realize I have a really bad problem not finishing games. Also, my 'blog series' is still in the works. Usually pretty beat at the end of the day and I'd rather take a load off with some gaming as opposed to wrangling some rampant thoughts.
