I will play through all of Morrowind one day. It won't be today, it won't be tomorrow, it won't be this year or next year, but someday I'm going to do it, god as my witness.

Also, go to a Giant Bomb PAX panel.

Get a working MSX(2) or PC-Engine and play some games on it.

Replay Skies of Arcadia Legends and get the needed rank to fight the hidden Vigoro boss.

Visiting an arcade with some really old school arcades, for sure.

Trying to find a copy of this 370-in-1 NES cartridge that my old neighbours had. Its legal status probably makes this one near impossible to ever find again though :p

Finding one of these before i die.

I mean... im currently building the largest Joe Madureira collection ever (its quite possibly currently the largest there is!)... and this is the one thing i fear wont be able to find.

only 10 exist of each PS3 and 360.





They fucked up The 360 version unfortunately... id still take it if i cant find the PS3.
(notice they printed Darksiders upsidedown under the "360" name on the dvd tray)




It looks fine if sitting upright though... just a minor annoyance.



So on that note... Anyone here on gaf have one of these or know one of the 20 people who have one... i need to buy it...

You really should, it's just soo good. I played through that game enough times to know where every single notable magic item was by heart.

Honestly I've been contemplating cutting down my collection. There's no way I'll ever finish my current backlog. I have all three systems but I'm at a point in my life where I'll likely never play all three regularly. Am I crazy for considering going the PC & Wii U route? And for the sake of staying in the spirit of the thread, I am going to finish evert numbered final fantasy. I have yet to finish 1, 2, and 3. Probably won't ever touch 11 and 14 though.

I'm in a shit position. Most of them are really long. I should probably prioritize these over random garbage I keep buying. Not going to list stuff I already started on. Also not counting stuff I don't have the console for like Bayonetta 2 and the Shenmue games. I already own the majority of these.

Xenoblade
Xenogears
Xenosaga
Chrono Cross
Okami
Valkryia Chronicles
Catherine
Mario and Luigi Bowsers Inside Story
Planescape Torment
Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn
Fire Emblem Thracia 776
Fire Emblem Genealogy of the Holy War
Radiant Historia
Danganronpa 1/2
Various SMT games (DDS, Raidou, SMT II)
Drakengard 1-3
Dragon Quest 7/8

So fuck me right?

I will put enough time and practice in a game in order to get actually good at it. I am mediocre at pretty much every competitive game I have played (because I am always playing ten of them instead of focusing on one).

I swear I'll play all the Zelda games after LttP (played as a kid). But JRPGs and other story heavy games and VNs take priorities I guess...

I was at an FF concert tonight and thinking about the big FF games I haven't spent much time on (IV, VI, VIII and IX) and one I've never played (FFXII).

The Half Lifes and Super Mario Bros. 2, 3 and World are also there. Oh and Sunshine and I never finished Galaxy 2.

The Souls games and need to finish off Bloodborne.

I want to finish:

Metal Gear Solid - I love the series but I can't get into the first game at all.
Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 - love the first game, but couldn't stand the second one. It's been like three years at this point.
Bloodborne - Love it, but I don't have the patience for a Souls game at the moment. Took me a while to beat Demon's Souls as well, so maybe once I get into the rhythm thing'll change.

I want to play:

Silent Hill 2 - I know I'll love it. But I don't have a way to play PS2 games, nor do I want to deal with tracking down a PC copy. My only option seems to be the HD Collection and well...yeah I'm not that desperate yet.
Resident Evil 4 - Everyone loves it. I've never played it. One day!

My primary goal is to make and release a complete game. I don't care how well it sells (though it would be nice to make back whatever I put into it), I just want a completed game with my name on it to be out there for people to buy, so I can point to it and say, "I made this."

Initially, the only gaming system i had last gen was a pentium 4 PC.

so i couldn't even start Bioshock, since my graphics card didn't have a shader model that was up to date.

therefore i have a shittone of games from like 2005-2008 that i have not payed.

I just spent most o my time playing counter-strike instead.

So, the bioshock series, Dead space, etc etc, i have a huuuuuuuge backlog to go trough.

Last time i tried to play bioshock i just spent an entire day setting up good AA settings, binding slowmotion to hotkeys etc, i never got around to playing the actual game.

Completing all of 700 games on my Steam library (aka never).

Probably Final Fantasy XIII/XIII-2. I was turned off by the negativity towards it.
Never played any Wii and Wii U games so yea. I want to play The Last Story, Xenoblade, Mario Galaxy 1/2, Bayoneta 2, etc.
And a bunch of other games such as Xenogears (Only played the first half of disc 1), Final Fantasy Tactics (Got stuck in the middle of the game decades ago), God Hand (Stopped half way for some reason), MCC (don't own Xbox One), etc.
Also attend E3, and meet famous gaming people (Miyamoto, Uematsu, Itagaki, Sakaguchi, etc).

Xenoblade Chronicles.

I keep hearing how it's one of the best JRPGs ever etc, but for some reason I have yet to try it.

Will definitely play someday.

Beat Final Fantasy III. I don't know how many times I've started the Famicom version and remake, but I never can beat it. I always give up after five or six hours.

Most RPGs. Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX, X, Chrono Trigger, Ni no Kuni, Earthbound and Mother 3, and the rest of Okami after spending 50 hours and getting nowhere near close to the end.

For some reason I stopped right before the final boss of chrono trigger.. idk why

So my goal is to actually replay the whole game to refresh my memories about the story AND beat the final boss this time. Gonna be easy to do considering how good chrono trigger is.

My previous bucket list consisted of only one item - Platinum ANY From Software Game.
Last month I got the Platinum for Bloodborne.

So thats done.

Bucket List Version 2 = Platinum any of the Final Fantasy Games.

I find it helpful to keep the bucket list to no more than one item for gaming otherwise disappointment reigns.

Off the top of my head I always wanted to beat Ninja Gaiden. The furthest I have gotten was the second form of the final boss but it's probably been at least a decade since I last made a serious attempt at it.

Castlevania 1 and 3 were others, I did go back a few years ago and finished 1. 3 is harder though, probably even harder than Ninja Gaiden is. Someday I'll finish it.

A lot of people posting about Final Fantasy.

That's on my list too. I only played the 13 trilogy and 10. I know that 7 is good, but how about the rest, like 8 and 9? Where to start?

I "dream" of seing knock offs of modern videogames running on a grid of retro consoles in parallalel processing.

Like, shenmue running on a Grid of SNES consoles. If such a thing is even possible.

While I could put stuff like Grim Fandango and Link's Awakening, I'm not going to list any games, cause most likely I'll get to them all eventually barring any unforeseen accidents. Like, for instance:
Snatcher.

Which I played a year or two ago finally, still holds up, great game, especially if you like the cyberpunk setting as I do.

Actual stuff on the bucketlist would be:

Getting my hands of the Steel Battalion controller for the Xbox and playing it. As a mech fan, it looks like the best thing ever.

My primary goal is to make and release a complete game. I don't care how well it sells (though it would be nice to make back whatever I put into it), I just want a completed game with my name on it to be out there for people to buy, so I can point to it and say, "I made this."

Though for the game I would probably just do some freeware RPGmaker thing, maybe along the lines of a surreal mashup of Earthbound & Lynch or something, I dunno. Not for the credit or anything, I just feel like I want make one at least.

Also to have a home arcade cabinet, but I think that's pretty unlikely.

Play all the MGS games and find out the difference between all the games and which order to play them in!

Also to play and beat P4 Golden. But that's gonna be my Christmas break title to play through at this point.

Long ago, I bought this:
One day when I get off my lazy ass, I'll actually rip the ISO & try it (can't read Japanese & don't know how to play Pachinko) if for nothing else to see the supposed SD/Pocket Fighter versions of Blanka, Sagat, Gief, etc that are in it. If by some miracle I'm also blessed with limitless free time, I'd even like to get sprite rips out of them.

Beat Genesis version of Golden Axe with only one life. Finish Road Rash. Buy a proper racing wheel. Play a Metal Gear Game or a Souls game.
