There shouldn't be more than 3 games a year. I have anime to watch and Rocket League to play.

Let's be honest here, who on this site has actually cleared his backlog at any point in time?

You know it deserves the GOTY.

Words cannot describe my admiration for you at this point in time.

I've never had one.



5 game backlog? Try 40 Switch games, 60 ps4 games. A lot chipping to do.

Ouch lol.



It doesn't start to get real bad until you have hundreds of games you purchased but haven't even played.

I was that way previously. I had way more than i could play in a month or 2, until i took a step back. Most games just get cheaper, the longer u wait to buy them. I finally got it through my head on how much money i can save, if i quit buying too many more games, than what i can play. No matter how much i think i need to play them right now. I pretty much just buy 1 or 2 new games when they're released. The rest i wait until Black Friday for. I can spend $100-$200, and have like 9-10 games at a minimum, to last me most of the winter.

Do the games on the SNES mini count as a backlog if you haven't played them yet?

I have the opposite problem. Well on Switch at least. There's nothing on the horizon besides maybe Metroid Prime 4 that interests me. I think my Switch might start collecting some dust unless a new Star Fox, or Mario Golf comes out or some new IP that looks good. Nintendo has kinda shot their wad with me in the first year and a half. I don't feel like buying more new copies of Wii U ports I've already paid, or buy more third party ports for ages old games like Doom. There's not really anything left since I prefer to play multi-platform games on the PS4. I might go back and get like Octopath Traveller. Maybe Smash if I can get it for less than $30 since I'll casually play that at best. I've already dabbled out into games that are only vaguely interesting with Fire Emblem Warriors, but that already feels like a mistake despite getting it for $15 on a Boxing Day sale.

I hope things improve. I'm pretty sure at this point if Sony announced a PS4 portable, I'd drop the Switch for it in a heartbeat.
