With the ease of game shopping these days (click on website, look at games, click to add to cart, click to buy), all the sales that seem almost continuous, with specific websites that track games and their pricing fluctuations, is it any wonder so many gamers have huge backlogs of games now? Or are you a lucky one that plays all their games as you purchase them?
Now, for the reminisce part: I remember the days before digital downloading. I'd physically
go to the local game store (usually Wal-Mart) and buy 1, maybe 2 games. I head back home, install the games, and sit down to try them out. Rarely did I have games on my PC that I had not played.
Good Old Games aka: GoG has been either a godsend or a devilpit, I'm not sure which. I have used the site to "repurchase" many of the old games I once loved playing or missed out when they first released. Unfortunately, the also have a good selection of newer games, even some "pre-purchase" titles. I have currently 223 games in my GoG library, over half of them I have never played, half of the rest I played long ago but have yet to replay. That's a lot of games yet to be played from this one website alone. Steam is not as bad, but my game collection there is about the same percentage-wise.
There is such a glut of new games coming out almost every day. I look at my backlog and think I may never need buy another game for the rest of my life. Yet I do
Where do you sit with the accessibility of games today and how big is your backlog, if any? Have you found any "magic answers" to help keep your games under control? Have newer games helped facilitate this by being less "in depth" or "replayable", generally speaking?
