My steam backlog is enormous...

How about you only play the games that look like fun and not wade through the others just because you bought them impulsively?

Yeah my backlog is massive due mostly to publisher packs and bundles. The nice thing about said backlog is that I now only ever feel like buying just the games I REALLY want now (4-8 a year). I don't see my library growing too fast anymore.

I am going to get flamed for saying this but..

This is what Steam does, it makes you buy games that you otherwise would not have bought. It gives us such a good deal that we regret it if we did not buy it.. b/c we think of the opportunity cost is almost nothing. Problem is that it adds up to crazy amounts of money we would never get back. Kinda like women clothing shopping but for gamers.

Dunno why you'd think you'd get flamed, that actually makes sense. I'd personally be lying if I said I didn't have a single game in my Steam library that I didn't buy out of impulse, and have yet to even install.

Read everything, listen to everybody, believe nothing, until you can prove it through your own research. For that is the true mark of intelligence.

I had stopped playing games almost entirely for 2 years and now I'm trying to catch up and it just seems impossible. Those humble bundles are definitely drowning me. There's a lot of games I decided I won't play and other games i wanted to get but decided to skip over. There are just too many, can't play all the games i want to.
