You see, my backlog is about to spiral out of control. Last year I really thought I would be able to catch up on all of my old games. The only games I was planning on buying were Final Fantasy 13 and Super Street Fighter 4. Unfortunately, what I wasn't taking into consideration was the fact that I was a college senior living on campus. Even though I planned my last two quarters in such a way that my classes weren't too tough, as a senior I kept busy with friends and myriad collegiate activities. Gaming took a backseat.
