Backlog (aka: How Have I Not Played These Games Yet?!)

To further delay any original content, I present to you, the fine people on this here internet, my backlog. This list is in no way indicative of the order in which I'm going to play these games.

I don't know how I've gone this long without playing some of these games. Some are excusable. Lone Survivor just came out this year, and my never playing Majora's Mask can be attributed to me not being a Zelda fan. I've also never owned a Super Nintendo in my life. But some of these? Just plain inexcusable. The goal here is to write a post for each game, but if you're on Twitter, I'll be live-tweeting my thoughts as I go along.

Right now, I'm crossing one of these off my list. I just started Shadow of the Colossus for the first time, and wow. Taking down that first Colossus was really heart wrenching.

Please, feel free to chastise me in the comments. Oh, and if you have any other suggestions, hit me with them!
