Backlog and Bucket List Gaming Issue 4
Hello, reader. Thank you for purchasing the latest issue of Backlog and Bucket List Gaming! Backlog and Bucket List Gaming focuses on two aspects: games you should play and news you may have missed. Prepare yourself for some of the biggest news headlines and best games out there.
In this issue, we are showcasing four great games in our Backlog and Bucket List segments. For the first time, they are all Bucket List games this month. And they are all Halloween Horror themed in honor of the month of October. We have zombies, blood and gore, and vampires covered in this issue from franchises that have been around for twenty to thirty years! Prepare to have spook-tacular fun with this issue’s games.
In our Topic section, I ask all of you to ponder your memories of the original PlayStation: how did it feel handling discs, hearing CD quality sound, and playing the breadth of games that would one day be Bucket List Gaming material for the first time?
And of course, we have plenty of headlines galore in our Top 20 Game Headline section: the Nintendo NX is finally unveiled Oh my!

Catalog Your Collection
Now that you have read Backlog and Bucket List Tip#3, it is time to catalog your Backlog and Bucket List gaming collection.
Getting through all of the games you would like to in your lifetime does not have to be hard, but small things tend to make it more difficult. Maybe you forgot where you placed a game or perhaps you do not remember what system you bought the game for. But I am here to ensure your collection is as organized as possible, making your Backlog and Bucket List clearing journey much easier with five main points:
1. Consolidate Your Collection
2. Make Your Collection Accessible
3. Keep a Journal of What You Own
4. Allow Space For Expansion
5. Out With The Bad
Utilizing these five tips will help you improve your Backlog and Bucket List efficiencies. And for the next five issues, I will be going over each one—starting with the act of putting all of your games in as few as places as possible.
Consolidate Your Collection
When I say consolidate your collection, I do not mean get rid of the bad games. That is tip number five, and we will cover that topic in another issue. What I suggest is for you to put all of the games you own in as few places as possible. By doing this, it will be much easier to find a game you are looking for.
Just think—you most likely know where your forks, spoons, and knives are. You do not need to worry about trying to find any of those three because they are all in one place. The same goes for games.
For digital games, keeping your games together simply requires you to create a folder on your PC. Name the folder whatever will remind you that it is the central place for you digital gaming collection. Whenever you get a new game or gaming program, put it in this folder so you will never be confused as where to find it.
For physical games, there are many different ways to keep your hardware and software together. I keep all of my games together by using sturdy plastic bins, separated into three categories: retro games, Nintendo games, and Non-Nintendo games. Because each bin holds a certain category of my gaming collection, I always know where to look. This is made easier because the bins are transparent—which I definitely recommend—so I can easily see the contents inside the storage unit.
Furthermore, the bins have snap-on, snap-off tops that are easy to remove and put back on so I can delve into them without friction. I personally love the medium-sized bins I purchased for my collection, but you can also use bookshelves, shelves, bins, and so forth—whatever works for you and fits your needs and space restrictions. If you require a larger bin or bigger shelf, you can always upgrade in the future or purchase whatever size you need now for expansion (which I will cover in tip number four—exciting!).
So now that you have all of your games together in a centralized place, it is much easier to find the next game on your Backlog and Bucket Lists to play. See you next issue for Backlog and Bucket List Gaming’s Tip #5 “Make Your Collection Accessible”.
