"Beat'n My Games" Mission Statement

I really like video games therefore I own a lot of them. However, many of these games sit on my shelf unfinished. I could make the excuse that “I’ve been very busy lately. I don’t have time for games.” but the truth is that I play my games all the time. The problem is that I keep getting distracted by shiny new games. I have now accumulated quite a large back log of unfinished games and it’s becoming depressing thinking about all the money I’ve wasted on these games. So I have decided to make a vow! I’m going to conquer my gaming ADD and beat all the games in my back log. I’ve created a list of every game I own that I have not finished. I’m going to pick one game at a time from the list and play nothing else until I finish it then move onto the next game on the list until I’ve played them all.

"Beat'n My Games" will chronicle my quest to finish my back log. I will have two posts for each game. In the first post I’ll say what the game is and why I purchased it and in the second post I’ll say what I thought about the game. I’m also going to restraint myself and not purchase any new games until I’ve completed this mission. Wish me luck.

Stay tuned for my first entry!

I should probably try doing a similar thing with all my unfinished purchases, which are numerous enough to make me legitimately shameful at this point

I find this happening to me, too. How is this even possible? I don't even buy things on Steam, but my library is starting to overwhelm me?

I usually finish games when I buy them but god damn I have bought alot of games this year. I need to go through the ol backlog myself but skyrim will postpone that for a while I think.

I never had a backlog but since I got my PC it's been piling up alarmingly fast because of how goddamn cheap it all is. It's a curse

I think once you hit 100 games to play, you go into fetal position mode. I don't know which one to play first! Sleep. Wake, now let's pick one. Naw, sleep.

The save for a AC2, AC2B, and Condemned, the only games I have that I have not completed are due to the fact that I don't have a good enough computer.

There's an easy way to avoid a backlog of games; if you still have games to play, stop buying more games. The exception, of course, being sales.

Yeah it's quite a sad affair, always hyping myself on new games with all that backlog to complete.
