The Dreaded Pile Of Shame

Gaming is a brilliant hobby. One where you can enjoy different worlds, play through countless stories or forge a unique path through hours of exploration. At times, you might be overwhelmed by a boss or puzzle and walk away to the next adventure while the game festers in a pile of shame (or shelf of sorrow).

We’re all guilty of it. Some more than others. I’m a terrible offender of this since I’ll also talk about games that I’ve yet to complete like they’re the best ever. As such I’ve routed around the house and through the depths of various digital receipts and have compiled my pile of shame. That list of games where the credits haven’t yet rolled.

Rules of the game

My aim is simple: To complete as many as possible by the end of the year. I’ll keep it updated whenever I finish one and maybe write a few words on it.

The rules are simple: Finish the main story. I’ve not included games earned through subscription services and I may have even missed some. Any games that aren’t here that I do find will be added. I’ve got everything crossed I’ve not missed anything, the list is big enough…
