I'm in the process of making a much larger article I've been wanting to write for a long time, but this weekend was busier than expected - I bought a new (used) car on Thursday (after my last one was totalled by some little fuckface named Doulgeris who tried to pass me on the left as I was making a legal left turn), and I spent most of the weekend dedicated solely to that - I got it detailed (it smelled like smoke, had stickers all over the console and had a footprint [note: not a shoeprint, a footprint] on the window), got an oil change done (the oil was pitch-black and hadn't been changed in 20,000 miles), registered the car at a Service Ontario location featuring a man screaming at the staff in Punjabi for some reason and, of course, spent a couple of hours joyriding because it's a 2000 Infiniti G20 and that car is fucking beautiful. That article will be about the retro gaming industry, and some of the shysty bullshit occurring within it. It's coming along quite nicely, but I hit a bit of a writer's block and needed to take a break from it.
Anyway, onto today's topic.
I have too many games. I keep spending money buying more games. And yet, I never seem to be playing them. I use my PS3 for Netflix more than anything, and I can't remember the last time I've used Steam for anything other than seeing what's new on Greenlight. I'm a busy guy, sure, I work full time... But in my leisure time, I find it hard to focus on gaming at all. If I do decide to play a game, I'll play through an hour or two, then promptly never play it again, even if I loved it.
So as sort of an open topic, how do the lot of you manage to get through a huge backlog? I feel like I need a structured approach to playing through these games and deciding which ones are worth keeping. Has anyone tackled a similar situation successfully? Let me know!
