My PS3 backlog just spiraled out of control and I need to prioritize what to play
April 10, 20211 min read
With Sony cutting off access to the PlayStation Store on PSP, Vita, and PS3 later this year, some of us have been exhaustively combing through recommendation lists to whittle down which digital games we want to grab before we're no longer able to purchase them. As I've covered before on Destructoid, it's a needlessly drawn-out process. I'm nearing the end of this arguably ill-advised project — I hope!
For me, half the battle was just going through my Download List and getting everything I already owned situated on my PS3 and PlayStation TV. That step wasn't strictly necessary (the store cutoff date is for making new purchases, not the ability to download your stuff), but it helped me organize my thoughts.
Along the way, I've dabbled with PS1 Classics I always intended to play, I've messed with a few out-on-a-limb titles, and, to be honest, I've fallen head over heels with PixelJunk Monsters again. If you're in the tower defense mood and the 2018 sequel didn't cut it, my goodness does the original still hold up.
I'll likely continue down this "play everything and nothing" path for the near future.
