So, I think it’s time for me to admit that I have a problem.
I need to stop buying games. Just stop, completely.
I have way too many games and not enough time to play them, mostly because I spend so much time on work. Every time there’s a good sale, I’ll nab one or two games that dropped in price until I can get to them. The problem is, there have been so many good and cheap deals lately my backlog is getting ridiculous.
I need to stop.
Recently I grabbed:
- Horizon: Zero Dawn
- Watch Dogs 2
- Nier: Automata
- Persona 5
- The Order: 1886
In the past, I also grabbed:
- Alien: Isolation
- The Evil Within
- Wolfenstein: The New Order
- Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
- Sniper Elite 3
- Infamous: Second Son
- Sleeping Dogs
- Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below
- Uncharted Collection
- Too many more to count…
No, I’m not trying to rub it in your face. No, I’m not trying to brag. Yes, I understand there are those of you that have no new games to play. I’m not buying most of these at full price. In fact, I buy them when there’s a crazy good deal and that’s the problem, there are always deals.
Once again, I need to stop.
Naturally, I decided to backtrack to the Witcher 3. I’m hoping if I return to some older games I haven’t finished yet, I can get this under wraps.
Back to Witcher 3 for me
I already beat Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, mind you, just not the massive expansions.
I still have Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine sitting there, ready to be played. I started a New Game+ before they launched and just never powered through the game a second time. I don’t have the heart to start a completely separate playthrough just for the DLC. So, it’s been sitting there, not being played.
In New Game+ you have to be level 60+ to start the necessary quests…
Not anymore. I’m going to power-through, level Geralt as much as I can and then hit that DLC then I’m going to finish the entire game. That’s my new mantra, finish a game before I move on to something else.
Well, that and I need to stop buying games that I don’t have time to play. Even if the deal is too good to pass up.
How do you deal with your creeping backlog?
