I finally decided it was time for a break from the World of Warcraft beta, seeing how I had 15 or so xbox games I had never loaded up, I needed a break from PC gaming.

Two weeks ago I started playing Gladius, finished that and started on D&D Heroes, look at me go, two games in two weeks, I will catch up in no time. My wife then asked me to go to the vet to get cat food... across the street from the vet is the best gamestop in town for used games... and they were having a buy 2 used, get one free sale.... and they had several used titles in I have been wanting to pick up.

I came home with 2 4 pound bags of cat food and 7 xbox games.

I just edited my games list and updated the played ones.. .here's the backlog of games that have never been inserted into my xbox:

1 Rallisport Challenge (Racing) - Unplayed
2 Sega GT 2002 (Racing) - Unplayed
3 Sega GT Online (Racing) - Unplayed
4 Colin McRae Rally 2004 (Racing) - Unplayed
5 Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Action) - Unplayed
6 Hunter the Reckoning (Action) - Unplayed
7 Jet Set Radio Future (Action) - Unplayed
8 Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Action) - Unplayed
9 Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (Action) - Unplayed
10 Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (Action) - Unplayed
11 Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb (Action) - Unplayed
12 Metal Gear Solid 2 (Action)  - Unplayed
13 Kung Fu Chaos (Action) - Unplayed
14 Metal Gear Solid 2 (Shooter) - Unplayed
15 Ghost Recon (Shooter) - Unplayed (technically I did put this onein the xbox but it was unplayable on my 21" monitor)
16 Ghost Recon: Island Thunder (Shooter) - Unplayed
17 True Crime: Streets of L.A. (Shooter) - Unplayed
18 Outlaw Volleyball: Red Hot (Sports) Unplayed
19 Outlaw Golf (Sports) - Unplayed
20 Silent Hill 2 (Survival Horror) - Unplayed
21 Soul Calibur II (Fighting) - Unplayed
22 Oddworld: Munch's Odyssey (Platform) - Unplayed
23 Midway Arcade Treasures (Unplayed)
24 ...and one more darnit...

OK, so my count was off... which one of these should I give a shot next. To give you a hint, some of my favorite xbox games are Burnout 2,  PGR2, Amped 2, Outlaw Volleyball, KOTOR and Gladius.

Yeah. Mine's significantly shorter than yours but its:

1.JSRF
2. Panzer Dragoon Orta
3. Lord of the Rings Two Towers
4. Deus Ex 2
5. Otogi
6. Buffy: Chaos Bleeds
7. Crimson Skies

I have made a silet vow to myself not to buy any more games until I've got this list down to one or two (I don't really count JSRF, as I don't have much interest and it came with the system).  My current planned play order is:

1. Deus Ex 2
2. Crimson Skies
3. Buffy

This of course is after I finish the phenominal Ninja Gaiden.

Sega GT Online is identical - or at least inclusive - of the 2002 version.

Personally, I like to bounce around - play Splinter Cell, then spend time with Inside Drive or something else.  I don't worry about finishing games, I just play whatever I'm in the mood for.

If I put down a "story" game and start playing another "story" game, the first is doomed to never be completed. I've been on the last mission of Pandora Tomorrow for about a month now because I started playing Gothic II, which I've been level 5 in for two weeks because I started playing Gladius.

I can play some Amped 2 or PGR2 or something and get back into a story game, but I will never go back if I load up another story game.
