So far I've spent the most time with Shovel Knight (20 hours) and Battleblock Theater (15 hours), which is kind of funny considering they're 2 of the only games I bought during those 2 weeks that I hadn't even heard of beforehand.
When you have literally a 100 or more games you haven't played in your library the prospect of completing them all is just too daunting. I start playing The Wolf Among Us, for instance, and at the slightest hint of boredom I quit and start one of the other countless games I have backlogged. It becomes this cycle of attention deficiency and I end up playing none of them and just reading a book.
Heh, yeah, I hear this. With me it's closer to 1000 games when I count older gen stuff, but my issue is slightly different. For me, the hardest thing is to actually bring myself to start a new game I've never played before, especially if it isn't brand new. Once I get started, unless I REALLY don't like it, I tend to plow through to the end. But so often I find myself not wanting to take a chance on something I'm not sure I'll really like, and what I usually do is replay something that I know I love. So the biggest enemy of my backlog is actually the tons of games I've already played and thoroughly enjoyed. At times I really need to force myself to play some of the games I was really interested in (at least at the time) but didn't have time to get around to.
At the end of the day, though, it's a very good problem to have.
