    Backlog of Games

    Does anyone else have big backlog of games to play? I have Gravity Rush(PSN+), Dragon's Crown, Metal Gear HD, Persona4, all 20%-60% done but not finished. I even have Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 for my PS3 unopened lol. This is just a example of the few of the games I haven't beat. I love buying new games, and all the games I have I honestly enjoy, they're fun but I tend to just lose interest after a while and hop between games. It's hard for me to get that dive to finish the games sometimes. I eventually do dive back in and finish though, just takes a while. I'd have to say RPG's are the worst, they're more of your money's worth in my opinion but because of that they also take so much time to beat which could lead to periods of disinterest after playing 50-100hours (nonetheless still my favorite genre). As oppose to a beat'em up that you can beat in 8-10 hours.

    Just wondering if anyone else experiences this? What do you do when you get into a mood like this? Just stop playing video games in general for a while? Share experiences and opinions on this.

    Also, recommend a game for me to finish :P

    My steam account has about 400 games, 95% of which I havent played or beat. PS3 I have around 100 games, half I haven't beat. To say I have a backlog to get through is an understatement lol

    I love games, but I dont got all the time to play the damn things..
    I seem to be in that weird space where the games I REALLY want to play are either not release, or I dont own yet. :S

    HA! Tell me about it man. I don't even buy that many new games but I still have a backlog. It was huge, but I've been slowly chewing through it for the past year. It doesn't help that every game I finish is replaced by something new I got on sale

    Currently as I remember mine is:

    Deus Ex Human Revolution
    inFamous 2
    Alan Wake
    Darksiders
    Darksiders 2
    Vanquish
    Crysis 2
    Metro 2033
    STALKER: Call of Pripyat
    Rise of Legends
    Medal of Honour
    Mirror's Edge
    Amnesia: Dark Descent
    Saints Row 3
    Batman Arkham City
    Starcraft 2

    plus a lot of indie games on steam.

    I've started most of the games in my backlog, but either haven't finished them or have only played ~an hour or so.


    And over the past year I have finished

    Sleeping Dogs
    Far Cry 3
    BioShock 2
    BioShock Infinite
    Mass Effect 3
    Portal 2
    Skyrim
    Dishonored
    Fallout New Vegas (kind of)

    and probably a couple more I've forgotten. So not bad

    Oh yeah, I didn't even think about steam haha. Especially after all those good humble bundles $1 for 6 games or $5 for the extra 2 newer games.

    I have a habit of just buying games 'just because' due to Steam. Out of my collection the current games I plan on playing and completing are Tomb Raider, Assassins Creed 3 and Max Payne 3. Oh and Splinter Cell Blacklist.

    Not fussed about the others in my account.

    I was actually just talking about my backlog of PS3 games in another thread.... I also have a ton. I own about 100 PS3 games, and i think ive played about half of them. I have dead space 1 and 2 still in the plastic wrap, i have bioshock 1 and 2, never even opened 2, played 1 for about 3 hours. Still havent beaten Dragons Crown, or Gravity Rush, Have some PS+ games i downloaded and never started, I still havent beaten Skyrim, I want to get Infamous 2 before i play Second Son next year, I want to get Unit 13, and The Walking Dead for the Vita, along with Walking Dead survival instinct for the PS3, not to mention Beyond Two Souls coming out, im beyond overwhelmed with the amount of games i have available to me vs the amount of time i have to play games at all. Its frustrating, and one of the only reasons i cant wait for Fall, because once the end of October comes, im in full on game mode. nothing but games from November to the end of March. when im not at work of course.

    I've got roughly 20/25 or so to get more than half-way through. A lot of those are sprawling RPGs that require a specific mood to become invested in I think, (Demon's Souls/Fallout's/Skyrim/Mass Effect's, etc) others are racing games amongst others. I'd like to say I'll get to 'em eventually, but I can't say for definite!
