Hoardz of gamez Mskotor’s profile

I try to get rid of my hoard of unplayed games. It's not much, but still it's some kind of backlog, right?

I give priority to my wins from SG, though it still can take me few months to beat long ones (like Fallout 4 or Skyrim: Legendary).

⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐ - game I really enjoyed. For either really good story or humor. It can has flaws, but they are minimal in comparison to fun I had with it
⭐️⭐⭐⭐☆ - game I enjoyed, but has it's visible flaws that can make gameplay annoying. Or games with solid gameplay and good story, but without **this something** that would make me really enjoy it
⭐️⭐⭐☆☆ - starting point. Neither good or bad. Average story with average gameplay
⭐️⭐☆☆☆ - when game has average story, so I could beat it to see plot but it didn't make me want learn more about characters or universe. Plus gameplay is so bad it make whole experience terribly annoying and irritating
⭐️☆☆☆☆ - only one type of games will get lowest note. Games that are unplayable or barely playable due to devs laziness. And their story is not interesting enough to push me into spending hours on the internet, finding a way to make it work. If game would be playable, but I wouldn't enjoy plot or it'd have bad game mechanics it'd get 2 stars

Side note

Disappointing month. I tried Costume Quest 2 and Death Stranding as they were free on Epic. And I’m really happy how DS turned out. I thought I may not like this game, but now I see I would feel like I wasted money if I’d go after hype and buy it. That’s why demos were nice. And why devs don’t give demos anymore. Make hype, persuade people into buying pre-orders, allow reviews to be released only on or after game release (best if they can show only dev-supplied footage to cover bugs and crashes). And know that average person will spend in game only few hours, so why bother about them. Fans will go and praise game anyway.

I did beat Mad Experiments and Anthem but those were at least “playable till end”. I would not want to pay more than few eur for Anthem though.

I’m playing Encased and damn, this feels like trash bin lurker simulator. At least I found it’s possible to enable cheats, so with 2x game speed it’s easier to forgive time wasted on long animations and slow walking.

January 2023 Update

Next update (works only on profile page)

Overall backlog progress :

26% completed

End of the year 2022 stats

  1. Beaten 22 games:
    • 7 on Epic
    • 15 on Steam
  2. Favorite game beaten: Tyranny
  3. Worst game beaten: Second Extinction
  4. Longest game beaten: Generation Zero - 48h (may go back to it, as they keep adding more content)
  5. Shortest game beaten: We Were Here Too - 3,8h
  6. I’ve beaten 6 games less than in 2021

No graphs this year, as my progress was changing by 0,1% here and there, and it would generate a flat line graph. I found Steam replay stats to be interesting. Did not know Steam track all games progress month by month. Shows nicely that I was focusing on one game at a time. The only downside is it shows playtime as % of total time, instead of a flat number.


Unlocked 357 achievements (Steam average 21)
Played 16 games (Steam average 5)

0% percentage of games played, released during 2022 (Steam avg 17%)
94% percentage of games played, released in the last 1-7 years (Steam avg 64%)
6% percentage of games played, released >8 years ago (Steam avg 19%)

Looks like the majority of people on Steam play the same old games, judging by low number of unlocked achievements and low number of played games. Must be a lot of people who just use Steam for DOTA or CS:GO, far less than “true gamerz” who play for hours in different genres. People who play games for 100% are also a minority. Even when image we get from SG / BLAEO may be quite different.

Last year I added way more games in December.

I said I will not buy Death Stranding, but it was free. So I can try it. I started Anthem and I like gun play. But it does look repetitive. It was like 2 pounds, so won’t really complain. I’ve beaten Underhero today and it will be in January update.

I saw only one game from my wishlist that had bigger discount than during this whole year. Disappointed. It does feel like sales are less and less relevant, and it’s easier to just buy game during regular promotions. Waiting for Summer or Winter sale will not provide any benefits.

Side note

With this post I oficially beaten my Steam backlog. There is 0.5% in not started and unfinished on the bar graph, but only because otherwise it was not generated properly.

I was finally able to beat Planescape Torment after going back home for Christmas. Took wayyy longer than anticipated, I thought I have 2 or 3 hours left. And it was close to 12h.

I spent around 6h going through my wishlist and observed games, and removed stuff that was added “as looks nice”. I will try to do more research before I add games, to not stumble on another Spirit of the North or Vampyr. Not unplayable games, but games where I see credits and think I could spend this time so much better than playing this.

So many games that still keep high base price, or don’t have 66% / 75% discount. Wonder how recent price spike will influence discounts. Was near buying Doom Eternal, and then saw DLCs cost more than base game, and there is no GOTY 1,5 year after last DLC release. Want to play full game and don’t want to pay for short DLCs more than for the base game. I may end up getting former PS exclusives before I play this one :hehe:

Going home later this month, so will finally beat Planescape: Torment. I will walk into 2023 without backlog.

If people are not aware, Valve will give away Steam Deck 512GB to people who watch this year game awards. Suck for the people in the Europe though, as stream will start at 2am.

With this one, I only have 2 unfinished games on Steam. One will be beaten over the Christmas when I have my Planescape: Torment save file. Other is Unravel 2 that I will play this month I think.

I started Second Extinction, DAEMON X MACHINA and Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus on EPIC. Second Extinction is meh, I wonder why they will release it after 2 years with so little content. Few simple fetch missions and really small map… DAEMON looks better, but also too grindy for me to stick for longer. Mechanicus is nice, I will beat it this month or next one, depending on my time.

I removed the bar for “Never Played” this month, as I at least started all games in my library. This update is really late though, so by the time it’s posted I have basically beaten my backlog. But it will be in the October update. I made my first post in October 2016, so took me only 6 years. And I rarely add games to my account for like 2 years now.

Makes people who say they will surely play hundreds of their SG wins “later” silly, as “they don’t have time / powerful PC / (put any other excuse here), and for now just farm cards”. Sure. Thing with time is that it only goes forward, never gives us a break. If we don’t do something now we will never do it. As next week / month / year we will have other problems / tasks / responsibilities. Remember when my cousin was downloading piles of movies and burning them on CDs “for later to watch”. Unsuprisingly he never watched those drawers filled with movies. He went to UK where he settled and have kids. And all his CDs went bad after years and had to be thrown to the bin. Yay.

Side note

I have 4 games left to beat on Steam \o/. One is Planescape Torment which is on hold as 30h save did not sync when I was home, and I’m not starting from scratch now. And some simple games, Rogue Heroes: Ruins of Tasos and Unravel 2 may be beaten this / early next month. So I may finally be able to beat my backlog at the end of next month. Exactly after 6 years of posting on BLAEO. After that it would no longer be possible to call it backlog, as games will be added and played on manageable rate :thinking:

Plan for now is to replay KOTOR 2 to get those last pesky achievements. And then grab some nice games on Winter Sale. I played through so much junk when beating my library now I want to focus on games I think I will enjoy. Instead of adding stuff that just look nice. Like Final Fantasy XIII :sweatsmile:
