H) They never buy games at $60 and look for big deals and sales instead --- Keep calm and hee-ho http://i.imgur.com/8JzkT.png

It depends entirely on the person and their mentality. Most of that list sounds incredibly single minded and meant to put people into categorized groups to dismiss them.
I have a large back log because I buy what I'm interested in at prices I can afford. I also collect, so finding 3 games during a B2G1 sale and paying less than $20 can bump my back log up even more. At least I paid $20 and not the $180 it would have originally cost, if they were regular editions.
Hmm, people who have backlogs ... it's not my place to call them anything. They paid for their games so it's their business. Of course this is Gamefaqs so re-defining people, games, and genres are the norm. Why not hand out backhanded compliments or insults du jour, right?
For the record, a bit of rewording and the second sentence in the first paragraph sounds a lot like how the J/WRPG fans operate on this forum. --- Elf this....Elf that....I'll Elf your mother. Yuki Nagato FTW

Games take a lot of time to beat, its not like movies where you can just spend a hour of your time, and who knows it might even be the fact the preson got bored of the game and moved onto something else. That's what happened to me. School caused my backlog, but I can tackle it whenever I want to. It's bette to have a backlog anyway then to have nothing to play after you beat a game. BUt if you have 5+ games you WANT to beat then something's wrong.
Also most people just use the word backlog for games they didn't beat, most of the time they don't even want to beat it.
