I generally do not have a backlog of owned games. Sometimes I might have two or three games that I've purchased but have not yet played. But that's as bad as that ever gets. I just do not buy games until I'm ready to play them, or almost ready, at least. Once you start doing that, you might as well light your money on fire.

I do have what I consider a backlog though. That's just a list (kept in my head mostly) of games that I want to purchase and play. However, I'm not big into going back and playing old games. So, once a game gets to about 5 years old or so, I eliminate it from my mental backlog. I'd say my current backlog is in the neighborhood of a dozen games.

I have approx. 700 games via digital releases. 30% of games are ultimately completed, so... even 70% of this is still a big number.
Fortunately, the biggest amount is on PS2 and my console doesn't used much lastly a couple of months. It's time to unleash the beast from 2000 :)



Multiple consoles collector from Poland.

Honestly only like 10, I mostly just buy games that I think I'll enjoy since I don't have that much free time + I want to save up money for other more important stuff.

I would like to hire you as my financial consultant. Unfortunately, I can only pay you in backlog games--which goes against everything you believe in.

I'm starving for something to play and I have 8 games in backlog. How is this possible? Because they are all buggy games that I'm waiting to get fixed before I buy them. I don't want an experience that's less than what it was intended to be, or worse yet, seriously broken.

This question brought me anxiety. 60-70+ games. Thank you



On console, I'm pretty disciplined, there's maybe 5-10 games I bought and never played (or played very little). On PC, it's a mess thanks to Steam sales, I tend to buy games I have a feint interest in when they get dirt cheap, the problem is that I never run out of games I really REALLY want to play so I never get to the "might be good" category.



Signature goes here!

Mine is over 100. I'm glad to see I'm not the only hoarder here.



While sitting here at work, I purchased Kena for PS4/PS5 and It Takes Two for Xbox.

THEY WERE ON SALE. What was I supposed to do?!?
