Back in March, I wrote about the FPS Blitz I wanted to do. I was itching to play some FPSs and wanted to work on my backlog. So I made a list of 24 games I wanted to playthrough.
Things started out fairly well. I started playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I’ve never had much luck getting through those games, however. After struggling for a while, I decide to switch gears and fired up Serious Sam 3: BFE.
Ultimately, life caught up with me. I got busy and my gaming suffered. My grand goals of finishing these games fell by the wayside.
I’m at a point now where I want to get back to it. I started getting excited about it again during the Steam summer sale. I picked up 2 new FPSs, Crysis 2 and F.E.A.R. 3, for cheap. I also picked up Serious Sam 2 from an Indie Royale bundle.
So I’m going to take a shot at this list again. Here is the full list of games I’m looking to finish (* denotes games I have already completed, italics denotes games that have been added since the original list was made).
- Bioshock 2
- Bioshock Infinite
- Borderlands 2
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
- Crysis 2
- Deus Ex
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution
- Doom 2
- Doom 3
- F.E.A.R. (and the expansions)
- F.E.A.R. 2
- F.E.A.R. 3
- Far Cry
- Far Cry 2
- Half-Life 2*
- Hard Reset
- Portal 2*
- Rise of the Triad
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
- S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat
- Serious Sam 2
- Serious Sam 3: BFE
- Unreal 2: The Awakening
- Wolfenstein 3D
There are a few things to note.
- Call of Duty: Black Ops 2: I know I said Call of Duty games aren’t for me but I’m really interested in this one. I got my younger brother into PC gaming with the Steam sale so I am hoping to be able to play this with him. Plus, I feel like I need to play through at least one of these games since they are so huge.
- Rise of the Triad: Rise of the Triad is one of my favorite games. Last week at QuakeCon, they announced Rise of the Triad Rises Again! I’m pumped!
- Dishonored: I wasn’t really interested in this one when it was first announced. I don’t really know why. However, I’ve watched the trailer and now am really excited about it.
- Far Cry 2: I’m not really sure why I left this one off the original list so I’m adding it.
I’ve been debating what game to play first. I’m about 6 and a half hours into Serious Sam 3 at the moment. However, I’ve lost some momentum since it’s been a while. I think I’m going to come back to that one later and start with Crysis 2.
Update 10/09/2012: Not sure why I left Borderlands 2 off this list so I’ve added it.
