That sounds awful. I just mass a ton of games and play whatever I feel like on a given night and don’t worry about whatever never gets played before I die.

I like my way, it works with my brain. It allows me to fully enjoy each game. As I said, to each their own. Nothing but respect to each persons choice.

I am in awe of your restraint?

I’ve gotta know....how do you choose the game each time?

It took me awhile. I basically went and  crunched down and finished all the games that I wanted to do in my backlog. Anything that I felt didn't value my time or if I caught myself forcing myself to enjoy them, I cut them out and got rid of it. It was hard, but I'm much happier with where I am at. Now, I look at these sales and go, "ok, will I have time to play them soon?" If yes, I tend to wait for another sale to see if I truly want them. If no, well I just move on. As for picking a game, once I am nearing the end of a game, I can assess what I am in the mood for and gauge from there. If something has caught my eye, I'll look at it again. A trailer, browse CAG or reddit to see if it would interest me. Then I will just either buy the game or utilize GamePass. Thats what I did with Hollow Knight. I beat Star Wars: Jedi Fallen and wanted something much different. Kept hearing great things about Hollow Knight and bam...26 hours later, I am still hooked and loving it. To each their own with this stuff.

How are your backlogs fairing this year?

 

I only have Hollow Knight, which I am currently playing. I don't have anything after that to play...I don't have a backlog. Sometimes I envy people with more games, but then I realize it would give me an insane amount of anxiety. So I just grab one game at a time until completion.
