How is that backlog going /v/? we should help out each other with our backlogs. http://strawpoll.me/6572010
What games are you playing?
How big is your backlog?
well now i'm having some free time soo...yhea
If a good deal comes around you can't just let it slip away.
I currently tried playing W101 today and holy fuck I hate playing action games where you have to buy or unlock basic fucking moves, I got my ass kick by the fucking cannons because I didn't have the defensive move to knock the shots back.
i need to get rid of my backlog before i move out
>have best buy gcu
>have amazon prime
>bro used to work at pawn shop and got us $4 games
>can't control myself when a good sale comes up
>probably buy 4-6 games a month on average
>barely get to play games cause I work full time
At this point my backlog will be larger than my played games
Rather than working through my backlog, I've been assembling lists of all the games I want to play on the PS2/Gamecube/Xbox and PS3/Wii/360. Because I'm a moron.
On the plus side once I'm done with these lists my backlog for those systems shouldn't ever grow any larger
except I haven't been looking into any JP only games so I still have those.
Can you spot the thing that is neither of what the title proclaims?
>make backlog list last January
>have to leave Bongland in May because the fucking muslims trying to come over is causing such a backlog in the immigration system that we got clucked and had to go back to America to renew our visas
>been seven months
>I could've been done with most of my backlog by now
>mfw I may never get a chance to finish it for the next few years because I have to get into school as soon as we get back
>mfw it was a bunch of JRPGs, MMO grinding, finishing a pokemon sapphire nuzlocke I started back in highschool, LoZ Oracle of Ages/Seasons and I think the batteries may have died by now
>mfw depression getting worse
OH BOY I SURE DO LOVE VIDEO GAMES
I backlogged making one.
Honestly what I did was abandon my PC backlog and started on my console games. Problem was the steam sales. It was better to just cut off all ties to PC gaming. I'm almost done with my console games, so I'll get back to PC and filter out games I'll never ever play (shit like Bastion or EyE)
Playing The Talos Princilple, Dying Light and Samurai warriors chronicles 3. Backlog is ridiculous and only way I finish it is if I somehow retire right this moment.
It's going okay.
I haven't bought anything on Steam since Fallout 4 and I've mainly been burning through my PS3 library.
Got the Mass Effect Trilogy for $12 on sale a couple of days ago to play through 1 and I just landed on Virmire so I'm making pretty decent progress.
>Finished 50+ games last year
>Still a billion more to play
At least I've managed to stop buying shit I don't play for months.
>having a backlog
I just play whatever I feel like playing. Maybe I'll try Lost Planet I bought 2 years ago now that it finally started snowing where I live.
Been playing a shitton of Dynasty Warriors recently, not really something you'd consider "backlog".
I have finally freed myself of my backlog burden by doing one simple thing.
Instead of playing a game to completion, I just play it until I've had enough of it.
Because of this, this winter I've been able to enjoy a lot more games then I ever had. Feels great not having to worry about a huge backlog.
>Instead of playing a game to completion, I just play it until I've had enough of it.
This. If you stopped playing after 20 minutes and you never feel like playing it ever again, then that just meant that game deserved only 20 minutes of your time, no reason to think about that game ever again.
This is the only proper way to look at video games. Forcing yourself through shit you're not interested in is foolish, most of us do that enough every day working the 9 to 5 to begin with.
