One of CapsuleComputers' contributors opens the door to the shady world of his "Pile of Shame."
My list isn't quite so long, but still plenty of things I might not get to. Oh Spider-Man, why so many games.
Uhg shame lazers activate.
I've cleared up a fair amount of mine this year. But then there are also those games you start, dislike and sell. I don't think they count...
I thought dishonored was pretty fun
I do the same thing... I'm kinda a game hoarder.
Same here, I have this strange theory that the more games I buy the more likely some free time will magically appear from nowhere. Sadly it never happens.
I play video games as a chore and not for fun now. Tough work playing games I don't enjoy :(
My backlog mainly consists of like 40-50 rpgs and a couple of other random games. About 5 or 6 are physical copies, around 20-30 I emulate or have digital copies of and the rest are off my flashcard for my DS. I think I manage just fine really. Sometimes they can be a chore to play, but I think any game can regardless of whether or not you have a huge backlog of others to play. You've just gotta take a break. I think the trick is just investing and immersing yourself in the world of a single game and just forgetting about all the others you want to play until you're finished the current one you're playing. Also just take a break from videogames every now and then. Have other hobbies. Though I do have a habit of making lists for games I've finished and haven't finished. I suppose that's not a good thing.
I've been buying games left and right since I got this job last year. For every game I finish, I buy like 10 more. It's so overwhelming owning all these games. I'm a collector and I just can't help but buy a game I want if it's at the right price. I'm not sure the exact number, but there's probably about 200 games in my pile of shame. There's over 20 games I want coming out this year and hundreds more that are already out. I keep finding out about more games I want all the time. Damn, why are there so many good games I haven't played yet?
I have over 200 games ive yet to open and play, this guys list is nothing compared the shame i have. Keep going, you might be able to bear me one day.
Hehe, we are so spoiled for choice these days. I remember way back, buying a new game and taking it home and finishing it in 1 sitting, and then finishing it over and over because there was nothing else really to play. I'm looking at you Atari 2600.
Yeh my list is growing *shakes head*
