Why are there so many huge backlogs with so many total cheapskate gamers?
I have a backlog which has nothing to do with my finances or i how i manage them. I myself limit the amount of games i buy at full price usually 3-4 games and the rest i wait till they're atleast 10 dollars, well with the great invention called the internet and the trends most games have it doesn't take long for games to drop in price and because of this i often find myself buying other games i wanted for atleast 50 dollars less than what they originall cost. Best example i can give is every year a CoD game comes out i buy last years for 10 bucks, i never touch the online so the SP is worth the 10 bucks i spent.
Why no interest in the multiplayer?
It's honestly got to be a trend that's emerged within the past 5 years....
I have. Hell, I have 2 Atari 2600 games in the shrinkwrap that I have yet to open and play. :-)

what you are seeing is the difference between hardcore gamers and casual gamers.
Disagree. Hardcore does not mean unemployed loser with no friends or family.
In general, the terms hardcore and casual are stupid and people just use them to project a negative impression on others.
If the terms hardcore and casual are to be used, it shouldn't be about people or games. It should be used by people to describe their own approach towards a specific game.
I played Tetris casually. I'd pop in a quarter, have fun, eventually lose and be happy with the quarter I spent. When the home versions released, I'd play them now and again with my friends, but never attempted to master the game.
Now this guy, he is a hardcore Tetris player:
He clearly put a lot of time and effort into being good at Tetris. It wasn't just an occasional bit of entertainment, it was a passion.
Likewise, I play CoD: BO2 casually, but I was fairly hardcore with Deathsmiles.
