I have literally hundreds (maybe thousands) of hours of gaming backloggery awaiting me. And thousands more from games I don't own. I could literally never buy another console again and still never run out of fresh, untouched games to play.

I'm kind of the same at this moment. I'm kind of bewildered on how I managed to build up a backlog, even though I used to never have one back when the generation first started.

However, I am taking the plunge into next-gen consoles for reasons unclear to even myself.

Working full time and trying to be social leaves me about 6 hours a week of vidya game time, I have maybe 6 games in my backlog and I have no idea how long it'll take to get through.

I'm probably good to get a PS4 or XBox One in 3 years.

God knows how people with kids get time to play.

Oh hell yes. Besides the games on my list on the Xbox 360, I've got a bunch of Steam games I want to play through, and the summer sale isn't helping at all.

I don't have a backlog. It seems like in the last year or two I've been constantly between games, waiting for something to come out that I want to play. I don't see this as an impetus for jumping to the next gen, though. I'll get one of those whenever I get one.

Cheating has gone hand-in-hand with gaming for centuries. Video games in particular often have cheats built right into the game.

Well I sure don't know why you had/have me blocked. I'm not a freakin mind reader.


....yet.

My backlog is part of the reason. It's massive, especially with my inability to refuse most XBLA/GoD sales.

I'm also waiting for at least the first price drop and hoping any hardware problems will be ironed out before I drop my hard earned cash.

I'm more than likely to go the PC route when I'm done with my 360 though.

well i don't really hate you with a burning passion because i don't really give you that much thought, but i do think you're a ****ing idiot.

I still have my ps2 backlog to clear, not to mention the psp, ds, wii, xbox 360, ps3, 3ds, vita back log. I think I have enough games to last without ever buying the next two generation of consoles.
