Currently on my gaming plate I’ve got Tales of Zestiria and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward (with some Heroes of the Storm thrown in at least one night a week).

Next, however, is a game that I’m going to have to pick from my massive backlog. Do I want to finish up a game that I’ve been slacking on and let fall by the wayside? (Fire Emblem, The Wonderful 101, Phoenix Wright, Batman Arkham Asylum, etc.) Or do I want to start up a game I’ve yet to play but has been sitting there taunting me for who knows how long? (Saints Row IV, Uncharted 2, LittleBigPlanet 3, Suikoden, The Last of Us, etc.)

I’m leaning towards finishing up some games I’ve started (if I finish Zestiria first I’ll play Arkham Asylum, if I finish Zero Escape I’ll play Phoenix Wright).

My question is: What’s the next game that you’re tackling, from your backlog?

If you don’t want to talk about those, then feel free to talk amongst yourselves!
