    Opinions wanted and me starting a series of threads.

    Quick background behind my reasoning.
    Been a console gamer since the old atari days. This generation however I found myself swept up in the pc mmorpg/moba genres to such an extent that it lowered my interest in console gaming for nearly this entire generation. However, one thing it didn't take away from me was my love for purchasing incredible titles and keeping up with my need to collect games. Like a lot of people I cherish my gaming collection and always have. But my 6year stint of devoting all my spare time to never ending pc mmos is coming to an end. What this has led me to is owning a collection of roughly 70 ps3 games, approx. 10 of which I've finished.

    The inner fire is burning again these days and I'm back in the saddle. My turn around happened in March when I couldn't take my eyes off of footage for the new Tomb Raider game. As a result, I recently bought and finished Tomb Raider, Bioshock Infinite and Farcry 3. But I have so much more to go through. And thought what better way to share in my enthusiasm then to potentially start a series in this forum regarding my play through of older titles. Not quite sure how I'll do it yet, and it might turn out to be little more then a delayed game review. However I'm sure some of you might like the idea of discussing some of these games again...might even spark your interest enough to give them another play.

    Anyway, I won't bother if there appears to be little interest in the matter. After all, I'm just another dude on the internet playing video games lol. But if there is interest, then I need some ideas on what to call the series to keep the threads grouped up in some way.

    Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Let me know what you think. Don't be afraid to be brutally honest :P

    Yeah sure, go for it. I've just reacquired an internet service after a long period of not having an internet connection so I'll be checking in on the site on the regular. Plus, there are a lot of games that I have missed out on especially earlier this gen. So give it a go

    I'm currently just over half done Uncharted 3, enjoying the hell out of it so far. While I may not necessarily make a thread on every single game in that list, the game I have lined up afterwards has me excited to finally play and is one I am pretty sure I'll be writing about...and eventually became the reason I came up with this idea. So at the very least you'll see something about that game, even if it is the only one to come from me.

    Still lookin for a title if I make this into something. "Finally finished xxxx" "Shepard plays xxxx" "Fashionably late" "Better late than never" ...etc.

    If you're going to write a review, then you might as well post the reviews in our Community Reviews & Opinions forum, unless your reviews are going to be brief.

    To what I understood, he's just going to partake his experiences with the games he's playing.

    I think it's a great idea! I've been wanting to do something similar to the sizable backlog of games that I have but don't have the motivation to do so.

    Yea I don't think I really want to do a full on review of the games. Some of my titles are years old. Submitting a review for a game that old seems rather pointless. I'm more interested in perhaps sparking discussion on games that some people let pass them by, or others haven't played/talked about in a while. Maybe in doing so, some people will go to the $5-10 bin at their local game store and pick up one of these games and finally give it a try while waiting on next gen consoles to arrive.

    Perhaps my recent thread on Bioshock Infinite could be more in line with what I mean. Just a thread discussing the game. I don't do ratings, I don't do scores. I may comment on whether or not I thought the gfx or music could have been better, but that'll be the extent of it.

    Gotcha.

    I would suggest just naming each thread something along the lines of 'Did You Like...XXX?' instead of doing something like 'Let's Discuss...XXX'.

    Even if people don't want to get into the discussion, they'll still most likely tell you whether they liked the game or not.

    Go for it! Really like the idea and will keep an eye out for the threads if you do decide to do them.

    Funnily enough, im doing near the exact same thing. I have been away from ps3 titles for a number of years and want to get the best ps3 has to offer. On my list of games is stuff like God of War (all of them, never played a single one! Blasphemy I know), Dead Space, Borderlands 1 and 2, GT5, Killzone 3, etc. I have about 30-40 games to go through and enjoy.

    Love the idea and may do similar to you with regards to my project. Project PS3.

    Feel Free to Add Me on PSN
