My Backlog

I went into this year pretty optimistic, we had a lot of games finally releasing alongside other games promising awesome experiences. Uncharted 4, NMS, Final Fantasy XV, Overwatch, Xenoverse 2, and FIFA 17!!! (fifa was a joke for those who didn't pick up on it). Anyway, I believe that this year has "mostly" lived up to the hype. We all know why I put mostly in there. At the start of the year I never would've imagined having a backlog so big.

Now, you may be wondering, "why is your backlog so big? And why didn't you see it coming? You did just say you were expecting a bunch of games". Well, I'm about to tell you why. It all started when I bought my first capable gaming PC. I was now given access to a whole new world of gaming, the genres that are less likely on consoles were suddenly available. I didn't know what to do.

It was when I met humblebundle.com that everything started to get ridiculous, I was able to get access to a whole bunch of games from the change in my pocket. Before I knew I owned over 100 games on steam and with the family sharing function my library grew to be over double that.

Games being so much more accessable and longer has resulted in a bloated backlog. Of the 200+ games I have available on steam, only 34 (at the time of writing) are actually installed on my pc, and of those 34, only 6 games (well 5 and The Witcher 3 B&W) are prioritised, and even then I only expect to complete 4 of them. I also have Final Fantasy XV, Xenoverse 2 DLC, Uncharted 4 (platinum trophy) and Pokemon Moon (finish and complete pokedex) to complete.

Next year is going to be a battle for a place on my backlog.

Thanks for reading.

I feel your backlog pain as well. I've currently got a whole bunch on my Blog too, and I've also added to it since then :( When will I learn?
