Is a vicious cycle of the $20 price point for me

PlayStation Plus' Instant Game Collection should be banned.

I was happily minding my own business buying games and completing them. Then the IGC came along and started giving subscribers access to all these great AAA games. Not all of them are my cup of tea however it has allowed me to discover some gems that I might not otherwise have tried. The problem is as I own a PS3, PS4 and Vita I just don't have the time to play all the games I'm given and there are some I really do want to play!

Going forward, a skill I want to develop is to make a list of only the very best quality games and then set myself a completion date for them. But I have to get my skates on before the Christmas rush of new titles starts. And don't even get me started on the mega-games coming in 2015...!

Same exact problem here but add the games with gold I get for the 360 and xboxone.If you haven't seen the new Wierd Al video "First world problems" on YouTube, check it out because this should be one of
Also "word crimes"and "Tacky' should not be missed by anyone.

F£$k the only reason i dont have it go back further is because SNES days i was a kid so couldnt buy games unless my dad bought em but now that i can buy games i just buy too many.

I really need to take holidays after the Steam Summer Sale. Seems like thats the only way to get time to spend with my new purchases.

Slowly my backlog is sneaking up on me. I always owned only 1 system at a time so it wasn't really hard to keep up. I have a ps3 and was about 3 games behind. Then i bought a PS4 and Wii U back to back and spent way to much time playing black flag and wind waker, while still purchasing games. I'm actually in the process of purchasing a gamecube system and all the old Resident Evil's for said system so I'll really be behind now.
