Hidey-Ho TAY!

I just wanted to let you all know that I just took a look at my backlog and shamed myself into a corner. I've bought a lot of games over the years. Some were bought in whatever year they were released. Others released some while ago and I added it to my collection at some point after release year. Those aren't the ones I'm talking about. I'm talking about the former, like this guy here:


Now I'm not saying I have a 2006 game in my backlog that is still in its shrink wrapping buuuut...


The suggested topic(s) for today:

  • How far back is your gaming backlog? A game bought in the year it was released. Two years ago? Five years ago? Last month? You don't have a backlog? Get outta here! T.T


  • The oldest game in your backlog that you've yet to play, regardless of when you bought it. If you must know, mine is dated sometime back in the old school Nintendo days which I got for being a 3DS Ambassador. A better example would be something like Viewtiful Joe 2. Released in 2004. Added to my collection maybe in 2009 or thereabouts. Yet to be played...

As always, feel free to Talk Amongst Yourselves if ain't nobody got time for a public shaming! It is the Open Forum, after all. Don't forget that the IRC Channel is always around for you to carry out discussions as well. If you wanted to give an admin, author, and/or friend a shout: You can find them on the DirecTAYry.
