I don't see how it's possible to be a member here and not have a huge backlog. Way too many deals get posted here!

Just have to learn to only buy a game you want to play and have time to play now or in the near future and not buy stuff just because it's cheap.

Though to be fair it's been easier for me in recent years since my free time has dwindled and other hobbies have taken precedent over gaming. I pretty much stopped buying games and just get stuff off Goozex which also helps since it takes a few months to get new releases.

I probably have 15 or so for my 360, and this isn't considering how there's a lot of games out there I still haven't even bought for it yet, much less played (I'm looking at you Mass Effect).

As for total, not really sure. I have a couple PC games, probably 10-20 xbox games I started and never finished, not sure what else.

Tiny as this gen I stopped picking up games I didn't have time to play for the most part.

In progress: Fear 2, Rock Band 1 & 2, Guitar Hero 3.

On the shelf: Prince of Persia, Fallout 3.

Probably around 5 games now. Trying to stick to my new personal rule of not buying something unless I know I'm going to playing it within two weeks. Been saving me from building too large of a backlog and for the most part games always get cheaper so waiting is paying off even more. Going to be tough over the next six months though.

Uh, I bought a bunch of used games during the last Gamestop 20% off used PS3 games coupon:

Street Fighter IV
Resident Evil 5
Soul Caliber IV
Lego Batman The Video Game
Prince of Persia
Ninja Gaiden Sigma

I also bought the PS2 Sly Cooper trilogy used (and complete!).

And now I'm wanting to get Batman:AA and Madden 10, too...

This.

Recently I beat Prototype, now I don't know what 360 or Ps3 game to move on to. So many to choose from. Though, when this happens I usually just play Gears 2 online or some other multiplayer game until I can decide. Takes about 3 days. :lol:

I got about 75 games unbeaten. I plan to beat them all. The RPG's are the only problems, everything else won't take as long as those.

I don't have too huge a backlog list, but they're all fairly long games. Essentially, I have to beat the majority of the Final Fantasy series.
FFIV, V, VI, VIII, IX, X-2, XII
Chronotrigger, Legend of Dragoon, Kingdom Hearts 2, Super Mario RPG, Oblivion.

Not helping is the imminent release of Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2.

Games I don't have but want to get and play: Ico, Silent Hill 2, Persona 3 or 4, Earthbound, Secret of Mana.

I tend to average 40-50 hours on a good RPG, so, that's about 600 hours right there..

I've actually been pretty good about catching up. Just finished Prototype and Ghostbusters now I've got to work on Shadow Complex and Call of Juarez: BIB. Wolfenstein and Batman are on the way too though so I'll be pretty busy.

I have about 4 games in my backlog...there's just sooo much to do...

I have Unreal I and II, Neverwinter Nights and expansion, Fear, PGR 3 (bleh) and probably some other game I will uncover and QQ more at.

What stops you guys from playing your games?

If I don't count PSN/VC purchases that I haven't beaten, my backlog is currently 5, though if you broke it down into individual games (WC3 battlechest + Orange Box) it would go up to 8. Playing 2 currently as well.

My backlog is tiny as noted, but what stops me from gaming more is:

1. Other hobbies take precedent as my interest in gaming has dwindled some in recent years. Still enjoy gaming, but not as much as exercise, movies, music, beer, sports etc. so I less willing to set aside time to game than in the past when it was higher up my hobby list.

2. Working pretty long hours, which leaves less free time for all hobbies, especially after running errands etc. is factored in.

Same here, I tend to focus on a couple at a time and in the meanwhile I'll pick up another game or two to add to it.

I believe I have 3 games I haven't bought but haven't started playing yet plus several that I've only played a little bit of. So, probably 10 or so games that I really want to play that I haven't put any real time into.

15 - 20 here. I'm just never in the mood to play the shit I have and always looking to buy the next thing... I usually end up trading in multiple games for a newer one thus the small backlog. Lot of stuff in my backlog were pretty much impulse buys.
