I think here it might be the case of quality over quantity. For example, if you buy BotW at full price (70$), and play it for 150 hours, and then a few times like some gamers enjoyed in the thread, it could be worth it for you.
Let me ask you this, have game backlogs worked for you? For me, they were always a burden.
It might be time to say, "let me get one great game and play the **** out of it".
I don't understand, how is a backlog a "burden"? To me my backlog is a bunch of games I purchased but do not wish to play immediately because I'm still busy with other games and I don't want to play a thousand games at the same time. Usually I play one major game and a couple indies at the same time. I may start a new indie usually when I'm done with one of the indies I'm currently playing so I don't end up playing too many at the same time but I don't start a second big game until I'm fully done with the previous big one.
As for quality I'm all for it but that does not mean I am willing to pay the huge prices they ask. Let me ask you this: Why should I spend 150 enjoyable hours on BoTW for €70 when I can spend the VERY SAME enjoyable 150 hours on BoTW for, say €20 should Nintendo do what other companies do? One can have fun AND be money smart, right? At least I can.
At the end of the day I must take this into account should I eventually get a Switch. I may not have a choice as BoTW may never be available for €20 but If I decide to get a Switch I will counter those prices by playing few games on that system, just the ones I care for and cannot get elsewhere. I still will not pay full price. I've seen BoTW going for €50, not the level of promotion I usually go for but if I end up only playing 4 or 5 games then I'm good, I wouldn't have time for more anyway since I need most of my time to play a ton of games on my PS4 which by the way are ALSO quality games despite there being much more than the ones I'd choose to get on Switch, again should I decide to get a Switch which I am not still fully certain of.
