Fret not, my Game Length blog is in the works and is mostly done, this is just a short aside and basically a list for me to reference and accountability.

My mind got ticking after writing my biography that I really do want to wrap up PS3 and Vita and then basically retire the platforms, however, I did not have a list of what the important games were for me to finish in order to consider myself satisfied.

Without further ado and in Alphabetical order;

Code Realize - Platinum
Corpse Party: Blood Drive - Beat Story
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X - See how it goes
Muramasa Rebirth - Beat Story
Murasaki Baby - All Trophies
Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines - Beat Story
Persona 4: Golden - Beat Story
Resistance: Burning Skies - Platinum
Sayonara UmiharaKawase+ - See how it goes
Ys: Memories of Celceta - Platinum

Catherine - See how it goes
Deadly Premonition - Beat Story
Demon Souls - Beat Story
Drakengard 3 - Want Platinum and to finally complete the Yoko Taro set
God of War (series) - Beat stories of all I haven't done
Ico/Shadow of the Colossus - Beat story
Ratchet & Clank (series) - Beat stories of ones 100%'d in past, Platinum new entires
Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments - Platinum
Sly Racoon (Series) - Beat stories of all I haven't done
Suikoden III - Want 100% completion as love the series and this one was not in EU on PS2
Twisted Metal - Platinum (Just online to go and feel given I love the game its worth doing)
Uncharted 3 - Beat Story just to complete set.

Mayadome Your Vita list looks similar to mine laugh. I really wanna finally start Persona 4 Golden before Persona 5 but it's a huge game so have to set aside quite a bit of gaming time to play it.

I'm surprised you've yet to play Catherine. The remaster is coming to PS4 soon so you may as well get that smile. Drakengard 3 is pretty high on my list too. Have you played 3D Dot Game Heroes? That's a hidden gem on the PS3.

Reevys-91 Nice lists. I have way too many games on both platforms to consider retiring either of them any time soon, I just need to get better at playing on multiple platforms instead of focusing on one console at a time.

Why not PS4 version of Uncharted 3? It would play and look a lot better. Either way it's the best of the original trilogy, hope you get some enjoyment out of it when you eventually play it.

Slayer1189 @Maya - Wooot similar Vita lists toast. Persona 4 Golden would be my first ever SMT game. really want to try at least one of them to see what I think and P4G seems like a good fit. I own Catherine on PS3 so wouldn't want to rebuy if possible.

Drakengard 3 is probably the top priority for me. I love Yoko Taro games and it is the last one I need to play and by all accounts there is no reason I won't love it!

I have played 3D Dot Game Heroes and I absolutely love it! definitely a hidden gem there as it is one of my fave PS3 games smile. I did 100% of the content and all modes in it, however when all I had left was 2-3 hours of small block farming for the platinum, my PS3 yellow lighted and the file was lost cry. One of my saddest gaming moment

@Reevys - Yeah playing on multiple platforms is really rough. I used to be able to do it fairly easily when I was younger, but I dedicated a very large amount of time to gaming when I was younger. Now I feel that realistically, I can reasonably keep up with PC, 1 console and 1 handheld.

In my case I intend those to be "PC, PS4 & Switch (360 will never retire but only for occasional XBLA)". In the next generation of consoles, they are really going to need to offer something special or it is possible I won't be a console gamer next gen.

I mentioned before how PC and console have been closing in on each other of late. I already consider Xbox One not worth it due to its issues and the fact they exclusives are available through the play anywhere service. PS4 to me still has a lot to offer and is one of my favourites ever. Let's see what is on offer next gen toast

As for Uncharted 3, I already own it on PS3 so wouldn't want to rebuy, especially as I really don't like the Uncharted series very much so far. I just wish to finish the 4 game arc because unfinished sets bother me and I want a true opinion on such a large series.

Same goes for Halo 6, I haven't been a fan of any Halo game other the awesome Reach! But i'll also be damned if I won't finish Halo 6 to complete the storyline and set! laugh

AtsumaKarin Hi Slayer! wave Sorry I've missed commenting on your last few blogs. Hope to get to those soon.

Some great games in those lists for sure. man, I never got close to finishing Muramasa, it just didn't quite click with me at the time but I'd like to revisit it eventually.

Persona 4 is one of my favourite games ever. It might even have toppled the almighty Xenoblade if not for one part of the story that annoyed me towards the end. Still, even without that, it's fantastic!

Good luck with Sayonara if you do play that! wink

I need to play Ys at some point as well. I'm so far behind on JRPGs it's not funny. cry

Catherine is another one I regret dropping, it was pretty darn cool what I saw of it, very unique concept. Hopefully I can go back to it one day.

I beat ICO (story) but got really frustrated with SoTC on PS3. Apparently, they didn't adjust the FPS correctly or something, making the controls difficult to deal with. It's meant to be one of the greats but I just didn't overly like it. :(

The Sly series is one of my favourites, which one(s) didn't you beat? I feel you might as well get the Trilogy and get 3 Plats out of it, surely it'd be nice to revisit the one(s) you did play? smile

Actually, didn't it come out on PS+ once? I know that 4 did but don't remember re: the's likely been on a huge sale at some point, though.

I still don't know anything about Suikoden lol. laugh

Uncharted...yeah, I need to play that too. redface

Slayer1189 Persona 4 (and SMT in general) is highly regarded by all of my friends who have played it, which is rare. My friend group have pretty wide ranging taste in games and (other than the Castlevania series) just about every game gets a mixed response. Coupled with that it is one of your 4 fave RPG's ever as well and I definitely need to play it!

See for ICO and SotC, I have never been interested in them. To this day, they just don't appeal to me, however, I got them free on PS+ and given how loved they are, I guess I should just give myself the push needed to play them and see what the fuss is about. At least then I can have an informed opinion. It is sad news about SotC being messed up on PS3 but I would still rather play the one I own for free than buy a game the PS4 version. We shall see how it goes toast

I am very embarassed about the Sly Raccoon series redface. I 100% completed Sly 1 on PS2, I then got the platinum in Sly 1 on both PS3 and Vita. I have started Sly 2 on all PS2, PS3 & PSV and yet I have never finished it!!! The strange thing is, I actually enjoy what I have played of it, but for some reason I can always finish Sly 1 and then never the 2nd game laugh

Suikoden is my favourite RPG series of all time. I guess you could say the NieR Series is its competitor for the title, but for that you would need to take into account the entire series and therefore it isn't "An RPG Series" wink. It is a JRPG series with a very un-JRPG setting, story etc. It has the some of the best progression mechanics I have ever seen in a game and they have great stories and characters.

The best part is that they are now on PSN for £4 each, which is a lot cheaper for those looking to try the series. The original game is also very short for an RPG so I used to do runs of the game over a weekend as a kid smile

I don't think any game remaster announcement would make me happier than a Suikoden 1-5 complete set, but given Konami these days I don't see it happening!

ZeroSeven_X @Slayer - Your story about the block farming fiasco in 3D Dot Game Heroes makes me sick to my stomach. Having done that farming...thrice for different past accounts...I have to say that it is the most tedious time in recent gaming memory. One can only stand so much tower defense grinding before one loses his mind, tosses his lunch and bangs his head on the TV tray from sleep apnea. To lose that progress to a faulty file is gaming tragedy.

Anyhoo, good luck in your PS3/Vita retirement tour. Looks like a nice set of games, especially the R&Cs...I heart those.

Slayer1189 ^ laugh Yeah that sums up block farming. I don't know how you ever managed to sit through it all 3 times! I was prepared to do it once and once only!

ZeroSeven_X OCD, man...OCD. laugh
