I would like to watch video reviews; but it seems like giantbomb has decided it doesn't fit their raw sense of style - much like how they changed I Love Mondays from a produced video in front of a green screen to yelling at a handycam for ten minutes. I think they see video reviews as more of a bigger site sort of thing - like gamespot, ign or gametrailers.

Step 1: Shorten the List
One way to do this is to get rid of games that are less essential or of lesser quality. This is a subjective process; but here's the list I came up with. I got rid of the first two Splinter Cell games and Blacklist because Chaos Theory is the best in the series. I got rid of Metal Gear Solid VR missions because that's extra content. I left only Sly 2 because it is the best of the three. I got rid of the 007 games and Risen 2 because those aren't great games. I got rid of Morrowind because...why do you want to play Morrowind 2014? Also Morrowind will take you all year. I shortened the number of Call of Duty games to four essentials; and Assassin's Creed to three essentials.
[Metal Gear Solid VR Missions], [Splinter Cell Blacklist], [Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, [Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow], [Sly Cooper], [Sly Cooper 3], [007 Reloaded, [007 Bloodstone], [Risen 2]. [Morrowind (PC)]
Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Saints Row IV, Sly 2, Just Cause 2, Mass Effect 3, LittleBigPlanet 2, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Assassin's Creed II, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Dishonored
Step 2: Start with shorter games first.

Step 3: when you start a game; finish it to the end.
Step 4: don't buy new games until you've finished the ones you still want to play.
@markini6: Instead of reselling or trading in my games I keep them all as part of my collection. Having them there on the shelf to pull out and look at is enough for me to remember. If I want to re-experience something I'll pop in the console. I play Super Mario 64 at least once a year because it's a game that had a big impact on me when I was young. A friend of mine also has a collection; when we go over to each other's houses we spend a lot of time pulling them out as points of discussion.
@walkertr77: I've been watching the X Files for the first time recently. I'm almost finished season 5 right now; from what I've heard the show falls apart in the next season and there's no resolution to the main narrative. That's a shame because the main story-arch is what I find most compelling. I still have no clue what is really going on.
