Tips to clear backlog?

Do not buy another game unless you plan on playing it immediately or it's free for PS+. Start there. Then if you find you are not in the mood to play just force yourself to start playing and time will soon fly.

1. STOP BUYING GAMES! Embargo games for however long it takes. Dont worry about the new games.. they'll still be there later.. AND CHEAPER.. *unless its a multiplayer games..* And speaking of that..

2. DONT BUY MULTIPLAYER GAMES! The reason i got such a huge list of games is because for 3 years straight, i played Warhawk, MAG, BFBC2, and BC3 90% of the time! Put a limit on that **** yo..

3. Look past your obsessive game hoarding habits and decide if theres any fat that needs trimming from your game pile.. some games are nice to HAVE but just arent that good and you shouldnt FORCE yourself to play through something thats not that fun. Selling back to Gamestop is just a waste.. So im not saying to sell them.. just put them aside..

4. Play a game and stick with it! the worse part of having a backlog is the constant urge to jump from game to game.. Dont give in!

5. ???? (this is the several months where you play through your backlog of games)

6. PROFIT! CONGRATULATIONS!! You completed your backlog.. Now reward yourself by going out and recreating it with all those (now cheaper) games youve missed out on over the months!

1. Cut off anything related to Internet.

2. Play short games.

3. Don't watch TV.

4. Only finish the story/campaign. Ignore side-quests.

5. Change to easy if you don't clear games fast enough.

Either sell some


If it were that easy, I would be a very rich man.

It really is that easy. Gauge how much Gamestop is selling the games for, mark it down by maybe $5 then sell a huge bundle on Ebay. Or just take off the shrink wrap and take them to Gamestop.

I would image if any of you frequent cheapassgamer.com and have a fair income, you might have a bit understanding on how easy it is to have a large backlog

some people buy $10 drinks everyday at starbucks , some people buy a $30 game every 2-3 weeks

I essentially pick a couple games that have been sitting on the shelf and focus on them. Once you knock a game or two out, pick another two and repeat. New releases can truly be an enemy of the backlog. If there aren't any preorder bonuses, try to hold off on that new release until it becomes more affordable, while you continue to tackle the backlog.

TC whenever I have a backlog, I start with the games I know will be the quickest to get through. This way I can get those shorter games out of the way before diving into games I know will take much longer.
