Next gen is coming – How to clear your current gen backlog

James O'Connor of MMGN: As the PS4 and Xbox One edge ever closer to release, I’m seeing more and more concern from people about their enormous gaming backlogs. With this in mind, I need a plan for how to deal with my backlog.

I sold all my console games that aren't first party or console exclusives and used that money to rebuy them on the steam sale, even got some money left over. :)

I don't plan on getting a ps4 till black friday 2014... probably. Not even close to being done with this gen, or some of the previous gens tbh.

There is no helping me. LOL. Between my PS3, VITA and XBOX 360 as well as Steam, I must have close to 30 games not yet even touched and I already have a PS4 and XBOX ONE paid for. I am not buying any other games except Dragons Crown until november. I actually still have PS2 and Original Xbox games to play. LOL

That's the real problem. Most adults, including me, just don't have enough time to play all those games. That is why I don't have all the consoles. I barely have enough time to play all the PS3 games I want to.

Exactly! I have found that as I have gotten older, ( I just turned 40) I have less time to do the things in life that I used to love to do, be it gaming, artwork, even reading a good book. Between my career, my four children (8 and under including a toddler) and wife, my free time has dwindled even though my obsession for purchasing games has not. I find myself not getting rid of any of them in the hopes that my children somewhere down the road wind up playing some of them. Plus, with the money that you get back for a trade in to me is not worth parting with the game.

Im only 21 and i barely find time to game anymore ( although its mostly my fault because i have been going out a lot lately) and not to mention my backlog consists of ps3 games steam, vita, 3ds, wii u... it never ends!

@ darth... I probably buy more games than i play but they will always be there even if i dont get to it right away.. I learned my lesson after trading in all my n64 ps1 ps2 games long ago... major regrets

Yeah, I have a pretty sizable backlog too. I just started from the beginning in Skyrim Legendary Edition, that's not helping the backlog at all but I'm having fun. Maybe I can dip into something while playing Skyrim. IDK, we'll see.
