Love Your Backlog 2019

I’m joining in on Love Your Backlog week, brought to us by Later Levels and Lightning Ellen. The concept is simple: instead of hating on your massive backlog of games, love it instead. So I’m writing this post about my backlog from the questions provided and encourage you to do the same!

My backlog is actually smaller than I realized when I actually counted it. I’m just over 50 games in the backlog, which is totally doable! Just need to motivate me to play the games on the backlog versus my favorites.

Now onto the questions!

Game most likely never to be played

Looking at my backlog, there are some random games in there. This is because of the filler games in Humble Bundles I have subscribed to in the past. If I only had to pick one game, it’s going to be the VR version of Scanner Sombre because I don’t own a system to play VR and don’t really plan on getting one.

Shortest game

I’m not sure how to answer this one. I’m honestly going to just make an assumption on what game is the shortest in my backlog, but still the game’s length kind of depends on the player. Anyway, I’m guessing it is Marie’s Room, which is a free short-story game about an unconventional friendship told through memories.

Longest game

Just like with the shortest game, I’m not 100% sure what the longest is. My assumption is that Hitman is one of the longest, if not the longest because there is so much content in that game. Or if we want to count the whole Tomb Raider reboot trilogy as one game, then it is that one for sure.

A game which has spent the most time on the backlog

Funny enough, when I went to check what game I have owned the longest in my backlog, it is actually the Tomb Raider from 2013. So it’s part of the longest and has spent the longest on my backlog. Imagine that.

The person responsible for adding the most entries to your backlog

The grand majority of games in my backlog are my own doing. A handful were gifts from friends, but this is mostly my own doing.

Now it’s #MaybeinMarch

Along with #LoveYourBacklog week, there is #MaybeinMarch. The purpose of #MaybeinMarch is to see if you can play the game that has been living in the backlog the longest to completion in March. So we’ll get to see if I can complete Tomb Raider in that time.

  4. I love this approach to tackling and talking about your backlog! I’m guilty of associating my pile of unplayed games with guilt in the past but lately, I’ve been going a bit easier on myself and accepting the fact that A) there’s only so many hours in the day and 2) enjoying a wide variety of games isn’t a bad thing!

    I recently crossed Dragon Age Inquisition (just the base game) off my backlog and it was BLAST coming back to it after a while because my friends and I were able to talk about it and help me without fear of spoilers.
