Why do people brag about backlogs?

It's like they're always trying to one-up each other posting more and more games they haven't played. As if that's suppose to give you Superiority. Or make them feel like " damn i'm so busy i racked up 300+ unplayed games, i'm so cool"

Why not brag about accomplishments? Like I completed so and so many games thus far.

Yeah, since when was this a thing? I always saw my backlog as something to feel slightly guilty at...

It is silly. All it tells me is that someone bought too many games.
