For me, I have given up on the idea of a backlog. I will refer things as my backlog but in reality it has become a gaming library for when I am in the mood for a certain type of game . My backlog is so big that I don't even have any way of tackling it without seriously spending a year non stop just playing day in and day out. Considering if I were to play 12 hours a day for one year, that's 4380 hours, and between all the Elder Scrolls, other RPG's, and Guild Wars 2, I could easily put about 1500+ maybe even close to 2000 hours to the list alone. That's also about only 50 or so games.
I cosign this too.
I mean I know there will be no way I'm ever going to get through every game. Some games I just won't like. The cost per game for me is so low though, it's just a library I build. Every now and then I'll try something out and on occasion I will love something. Funny enough, all my favorite games I've played so far I've attacked from the jump rather than let them sit in the backlog. That's the only time I'll spend more than say $5 or $10 for a game though, when I'll be playing it pretty soon.
I also agree Walking Dead only gets better and the very end of the episode with all possibilities just guarantees I'll probably be playing this game through multiple times.
