Why do you need to be on here while playing games? Can't you just turn the laptop off while you're playing?

That's a VGC server, but it's not the VGC server.

Still, maybe it's a distraction on your journey to finish your backlog It's fine to go play some games!!! 



I've actually been playing a lot too. Mostly on Switch. Problem is I still buy games faster than I can beat them.

Yeah, I'm quite bad when it comes to clearing my games... I usually wait til night time to play some games, but by the time I'm ready to play, I'm just too tired to play anything lengthy or intense. So I end up playing Issac instead. Happens quite often xD

I I have the terrible habit of trying to platinum the games before actually going to the end of it. Like, I can be really close to the end credits but I keep focusing on those smaller things on the game, stuff that I should probably do on the pos-game but I somehow keep focusing on that instead of just going to the end,you know when people end a Pokemon game and start a second pos-game run to catch all of the pokemons? I am the kind who tries to do that BEFORE getting to the pos-game. For example, I am playing Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright right now I am pretty much only have the last two chapters to complete, but for the past month I keep doing smaller maps and online to get all of the convoy conversations. And I am holding Conquest to play only when I finish Birthright.

So yeah, playing like this takes me way longer to actually end a game than most people when playing the same game, specially RPGs. Also doesn't help when I get new games that distract me from the other games I already have,and then I get a new one that distract me from the one before that...

Are you telling us what I think you're telling us? You collected all collectables in TW101? All pins, all challenges? Man, that's impressive!

This is very similar to me, I don't like playing games through the day and stuff because there's too many distractions and I can't concentrate, so the only time I can play is when I have peace and quiet around me, which unfortunately isn't until like 1-2am or something in a house of five people all aged 18+, lol... and most days I think to myself "No point starting a new/continuing a game now... I'll just play Overwatch", so I do that instead, lol. 

Thankfully that'll all have changed by this time next year, since we hopefully have our own house by then, and my girlfriend works nights a lot, so I'll have tons of quiet time to sit down and play... probably sounds silly but that's actually the thing I'm looking forward to most, lol.

You're preaching to the choir...

I have much improved in combating my backlog lately, but I suffer from the same condition (without the overwatch part, more like "random Japanese grindy game" for me).
