What is your MyCard?The New World OrderWho wants to be on the Advertising Team?



So throughout the years I've accumulated tons of games. And despite a little stint where I sold about 5 games as a 9 year old, I don't trade them in for money.

About a year ago I decided to count my physical games up and find out what I had not finished. In the end I rough estimated around 70 games that I needed to finish or start (not counting downloaded titles). I'm somewhat terrible at finishing every game but I finish a decent amount (the ones that I start, anyway). I'm worse at never starting them. I'm not sure how it got this bad since I'm not terrible with money but it's more like a lack of time.

So I slapped it all in a Google sheets document and it's pretty astounding. Not everything is filled out and I haven't gotten around to reviewing every game there but I intend to fill it all. I just recently finished listing all my games out (I had to plug the Wii back in to see what downloaded titles I had). The first 87 lines are simply games that I want to play:

At the bottom I put in totals to keep myself in check of how good or bad I'm doing. I want to complete at least 80% of what I start.

Yeah I have backlogs for Wii(smg2), Wii U(Pikmin 3 and Xenoblade x) and 3DS(MM 3ds, DKC returns) too. Not counting switch just yet..We should start something like beat two backlog games before buying a new single player one.

Brandy: I could've sworn it was a PS2 game, but thanks for correcting me.

ShadowFox: Yeah any more I try not to buy a game unless I really badly want it and even then I am able to wait. I really want Cuphead but they will have black Friday deals or Xmas deals where it could show up. I am able to probably beat two games tonight but given that my backlog is so huge it should probably be more like 5. This backlog is also exacerbated by Xbox giving away 4 free games per month for free.

I've been backed up since about 2009. Too much moving, too busy to really play games. I think the last console game that I finished for the first time was the second Prince of Persia (for PS2).

I have a bunch of digital games for the vita. I may or may not finish them before I get a switch.

I've made peace with the fact I won't play or finish half of my Steam library, and that I simply won't get the opportunity to play some "essential" games I've missed out on over the years. Which is fine, as I don't have much time for gaming anymore, and I'd rather spend what little of it I do have on something I'm actually invested in.

So apart from a few recent releases, no more backlogs for me.
