LOL. That is not even close to what CAG folks would call a "backlog," my friend.


How many will be defined as backlog?

Lol....

oh dear lord.. I've got mountains of sealed games going back to the GBA era. I don't think my backlog is at 500 but.. it's damn near close.

It cannot be defined as a number. Think of it more as a problem to accept reality. Ever seen the show hoarders...

I’m very tempted to bite on Control but don’t like how the company screwed the ones who bought the game on launch. Is this overreacting and/ or is the game worth it?


Yeah, it’s a fun game.

Yeah I played through it. It’s a good game but not as good as Alan Wake was. One thing I hated was how difficult some of the bosses were. I had to watch YouTube videos on how to beat them.

Agreed. I'm not too far into Control, but its world doesn't have as cool a feel as Alan Wake's. Still a good game so far and worth a buy, especially at current sale prices.

Last count I was a little over 2400 games from intellivision to ps4/xone. Reminds me I need to update my spreadsheet.

Fine line between hoarding and collecting. I clean and alphabetize everything in my game library and keep a spreadsheet (help to prevent rebuys). I hope that qualifies as the latter.

Same here, I thought it was today so I woke up disappointed. I'm waiting to get a couple of the games on sale on the eShop until tomorrow.

Is a game considered to be in the backlog if you bought it knowing full well you will never play or open it?

Was able to grab Persona 5 royal steel book from gamestop. And FF7 remake from bestbuy

Also found a ps4 pro on OfferUp I was able to haggle to $200. Came with controller but unfortunately it came with Kingdom Hearts 3 🤢


Overall good run. No crowds, in and out.

Eh, kinda. I guess what I tell myself is “I’ll get around to them all eventually”

Ever since I joined CAG in 2008, I have amassed a backlog in everything from 3DS, PS3, PS4, Xbox, Switch, etc...

I still have Fallout : New Vegas PS3 sealed. On the top of the case, there is a sticker that reads “Do Not Sell Until 10/19/2010”.

Backlog is what I do.  I had a nice little Asian girl over week before last who perused my 3DS library and she picked out three Kirby and Zelda games to borrow and play.  It made us both happy.   She'll be coming over at some point again to return them.

What if you never see her again and she just took your games?

I’m a bad sharer. I had bad childhood experiences where things were returned to me in poor condition (or not at all), so I don’t share anything with anyone.

Oh, I'm nowhere near that line. I'm on the line between Hoarder and whatever's worse than hoarding.

Lol you can't even remember what you bought already, well that tells you you have problem.

Based on the way he is trying to flaunt with the way he worded that, she most definitely is not coming back lol.

My backlog may be pretty bad, but I at least remember if I have a game or not. If I get to the point where I click on a game on a website and ask myself, "Do I have that already?" then I need to stop buying games.

 

I put all my unplayed games in a list on my phone so I can scroll through and see if one catches my eye, like if I'm in the mood to play a JRPG or an action game. Then, I look up reviews to see if it'll match the kind of experience I'm craving (I may remember what games I already have, but I sometimes forget why I bought them lol). Of course, that list is...quite long.

Remember... I used to be able to do that. Now I have kids, never get enough sleep and cannot remember where I put my car keys. I only have two of those to keep track of...
I blame the gamestop 4 for 10 deals and the slew of 99 cent games at the end of console cycles for losing track. I am a sucker for complete games for a buck even if I am only mildly interested.

Are we talking physical backlogs or digital ones.

Physical, I can still find a place for everything.  I curate as much as possible for only things I find novel.

 

Digital, well, I'm just happy for Steams "smart sorting" algorithms.  Some of the CAGs have several thousand...

Okay, someone help me out here.  WHERE are people seeing $19.99 Game Pass at GameStop? I've been checking for days and the price has absolutely not gone that low. Today is Black Friday. If not now, then when?

 

Or is it in-store only? -_-

It's also that price at Target and Costco (both online).

No one would know that.  But chances are very, very high that they'll have another one right before or on Christmas week in four weeks.  They've had around 8 of them this year.

Target has the family plan for the Switch discounted from $34.99 to $19.99 for a year but I have not been able to add this for days to my cart.

Oh well, better luck next time.
