How big is your gaming backlog - games you own and plan to play, but haven't got

#1moniewitchPosted 2/5/2013 9:25:25 AM
gotten around to yet. This is about the poll of the day.

Anyone know anyone that really has not played 100 of their own games yet? Over 100 - I think I may have a problem %7.55 percent said this. Is this true?


I'm one of the ones that has 1-5 games I own that have not played yet. How about everyone else?

I don't see how 1796 people have not played 100 games yet that they own.

Anyone? Thanks

I can believe it. I'm sure those are people who have a job but still live at home and have no other bills and responsibilities, so they just buy game after game after game.

On a side note, my backlog consists of AC: Revelations, the Mass Effect Trilogy, and Shadows of the Damned. I need to start clearing them out before my preorders start coming in.

Disgaea 3 and Rune Factory only. I'm halfway in Rune Factory (about 50 hours) but it's boring. Gonna be 3 backlogs soon, I just ordered Kingdom of Amalur for $15.

I cannot believe 100 games.



But the games I have that have not played yet due to my Playstation 3 being stolen is Catherine, Yakuza 3, Sly Cooper colleciton, and Dragon Age 2 all for the Playstation 3

It's a bit of a poorly worded poll which isn't atypical on GFAQ.

You also have to account for people simply selecting the most outlandish option just because they can.

If I were to list the games that I haven't finished or plan to eventually get around to, it would be over 100 - games I own that I haven't played at all - maybe 5 or 6

Games in my collection that i've played......all
Games that I have finished.......not all
Games that I intend to finish........ none. If I finish a game, it's because it hooked me.

Unfortunately, the traditional definition expressed on this board, is a backlog is unfinished games that you intend to finish.

So technically, backlog is 0, despite it being

Kudos to you, TC.

It's easy for games to accumulate. I currently have roughly 30-40 games I own but haven't played. It comes from buying most of the Humble Indie Bundles and just generally accumulating things through Steam sales and occasionally PSN. If I see a game under $5 that I'm remotely interested in I'll buy it. So of my 30-40 games maybe 10 or so are full retail titles, but if I kept this trend up for a while it wouldn't be hard to accumulate 100 unplayed games in a few years.
