That also isn't counting all the games I got prior to that time. Oh, and really I started doing the beat the games to completion thing because I realized I just wasn't enjoying games as much as I used to so I changed up how I played them.
Sounds like me. At the height of my console gaming life, I had over 150 games and would pop one in randomly, play a bit (getting no where towards completion) and then plop another in, rinse and repeat. I do take much more satisfaction and enjoyment now from focusing on one title (or even genre) and playing through to completion. It's just that some of these games I love either can't be completed "quickly" (i.e. Skyrim) or I love playing through multiple time (again Skyrim, Mass Effect, Borderlands), so they become time sponges. I guess I'll use the time from now till Amazon's Editor's Choice to pick up those last deals and then, like has been mentioned, cut myself off. As for the indie bundles...well...it'll be hard to pass up those deals during the year. The upcoming AAA game sales (Bioshock, Remember Me, The Last of US, DS3, ...) I think
I can fully hold out until late next year. I certainly have enough to keep me busy
