6-10 games now due to blackfriday purchases but it usually is in the 1-3 range.

Is over 1300 a legit number? If we exclude games I've never even started, it's probably still a ridiculously large number.

Note that I don't even own any Xbox consoles, I've just picked up free games whenever I've noticed any be available...

Just counting my PS4 and PS5 physical backlog I'm at 47... I'd rather not get into digital games or other consoles! :'(

I don't really buy or play new games. Maybe 5 per year.

Even so my backlog is pretty big for me at the moment, about 10 games.

Just 7 games. I've gotten used to not buying anything im not gonna play right away - or in the short term. Money management and stuff.
TBH 7 games is even a lot for me, I usually just have 2-3 games in the waiting line.

Glad I'm not the only one with a horrendous backlog.

As far as not buying new games, it depends. Something like Psychonauts, Ratchet and Clank, or Kirby will be day ones. Things like Guardians of the Galaxy are more of games I will either get on sale or will hope to be gifted the game

Endless. Reaching back many generations now. It'll never go away.

Bonus: Obviously not.

Too many. I play a few hours on a new game, then go back to play an old one for a bit. never-ending story.

Man, I thought I was bad with my figure but 200+ games, and that’s the most voted answer? I’m stunned.

My figure feels low but I excluded games I have still unfinished but feel I’m not likely to circle back to any time soon (TLOU2, Metro Exodus, Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Cyberpunk 2077, Red Dead Redemption 2, Ghostrunner, Horizon Zero Dawn, Mafia DE, Destroy All Humans).

Currently my backlog is Far Cry 6, Assassins Creed Valhalla, The Witcher 3, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Ghost of Tsushima , Pokemon Shining Pearl. I’m excluding Guardians of the Galaxy from both lists as I feel done with it and will sell it, never to return to it.

Respect for whoever voted for 0.
