Backlog Gaming


Like many video game fans, I have a rather substantial backlog of games. In late 2012 I began creating a backlog schedule to motivate me to play through my ever expanding library of games, mostly on PC. I called it Rogue’s Adventures, and made it through seven six-month seasons and nearly four years before I had to take a break in mid-2016.

The All-New Rogues’ Adventures began in 2017. Note the new apostrophe placement – I’ve roped in one of my best friends to help him get through his even bigger backlog. We’ll motivate each other to play and finish games, and occasionally sync up to play the same games.

While I’ve since retired the twitter account and no longer reliably stream games, you can still read my Final Thoughts for each game I complete below. Note that my backlog gaming predates this website, so many older links point to my old blog on Game Informer.

I also have a Steam Curator list for each game I’ve played and an official Facebook page to keep up with our progress.
