Except Monster Hunter World. I have to buy that. Otherwise, this is getting out of hand. I have hundreds of games, some of which I've never even started. I could probably hold myself over until the next generation consoles come out just by playing and completing the games I already own, and would not have to play a duplicate.

I'm taking a stand against my own undisciplined nature and it starts with this Black Friday sale.....
I post a lot using my phone. Most "typos" are probably a result of autocorrect

I broke myself of backlog syndrome at the end of 6th gen. Good luck.
I wonder if 'Deus Vult' would still be such a popular phrase in nerdom if they knew there was no 'v' sound in Latin.

I keep saying the same thing. And then I buy another one on sale. Then download the monthly + games, and but another on sale. All with the intention of getting around to them eventually, and I often never do.
Now playing - Nier Automata, Bloodborne, Forza 7, PUBG, Yakuza 0, Project cars 2.

Forget about simply clearing your backlog and instead just play the games you want to play. Yes, you will likely have to not play a game you bought last year for a great price that you still haven't gotten around to because your never in the mood for it. Take the loss and move on and instead enjoy the games you do play.

...everyone said, but didn't follow through.

I even say that, I buy 2 maybe 3 games a year, and then have the Gold games on top if I get them. And still have too many games.

Same here, but the backlog symdrome crept back up again. I mean, how could I resist Doom and Dark Souls 3 for $5 each, Prey for $15, and Horizon Zero Dawn for $20. I think i'll stop now, though unless.... more $5 games lol

Well, sure. after sales you'll have a few, but my backlog never gets deeper than, say, 5 games. I'm not going to skip a sale on principle.

I don't have a huge backlog with about 15 or so games that I do need to finish/haven't started. I made a poll a few days ago deciding on Rise of the Tomb Raider, AC: Origins, and Wolfenstein 2. Haven't bought any yet but I am really considering Origins. But then when I turn on my X1X I end up playing a few rounds in Dead by Daylight.
