'Six games at the moment' is probably an exaggeration, since I doubt I'll keep all those plates spinning. It's more, two main games, four games I dip into if in the mood (now five), one game that's properly in the backlog, and two equivalents of your last category; but the middle two categories are going to get mixed up.

Anyway, that's an impressive current catalogue, but given your many machines I'm not surprised. Hope you enjoy Sakuna!

I know I've got lot of machines because retro and collecting but really it's just the two I use and think most on here are PS4(5) + Switch, I just happen now to be Xbox + Switch (I also think it's a high percentage of Switch installbase have another system in general).

I don't know how others backlogs really compare, if I hazard a guess sort be similar (eg Jas old post of his backlog).

Ohh and I still might add PS5 into the mix but I'm in absolutely no rush to get one.

On this week's cast, EofGiz says he's going to go 12 months without buying a game because of his backlog (he doesn't mention it but also guess if he waits 12 months, Horizon Forbidden West won't be £70), they don't think I can do a month without buying a game of any kind.

There are forfeits etc and my not buying a game is meant to be after EofGiz does 3 months at least, which means I wouldn't be able to get anything from March, a month with GT7, Triangle Strategy & Rune Factory 5. That I'm just going to do December and even maybe January as well (I only want Pokémon Legends which is out on my birthday, so can just ask for it) to prove a point more than anything.

As my backlog (mixed in all systems part from retro as then list be about 100 games) looks like this of things I do want to play:

The main ones:

• Pokémon Brilliant Diamond. What I'm currently playing.
• Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Recently got and seems fine enough.
• Shin Megami Tensei V. A long one and what will cover most of the month anyway as I plan to finish (unless it's crap) before the end of the year.
• Call of Duty Vanguard. It be a short, fun enough campaign, then I can just uninstall it.  
• Wavetale. A Stadia exclusive (madness) which looks like it be fun and is about 5hrs long.
• Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Seeing I'm about 5hrs in and paid like £35 for it, I do want to play soon.

On the fringe:

Aliens: Fireteam Elite, bought as it was a cheap physical PS5 game, and I've not touched it since the day I got my PS5.
Atelier Ryza 2
Control: Ultimate Edition, started again on PS5 still great and a doable plat.
Days Gone
Death Stranding: Director's Cut, brilliant but I have played recently enough.
Gravity Rush 2
The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures, I'm like halfway through the first game.
Horizon Zero Dawn - Frozen Wilds, I should do the DLC before the sequel.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
Mafia: Definitive Edition
Maquette
NieR:Automata, CW keeps going on about it and I loved Replicant.
The Pathless, heard good things and not long.
Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, kinda want to play the actual game first mind.
Persona 5 Royal, I would have to start again and SMTV might be too similar
Persona 5 Strikers
République
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin
Shenmue II, partway through and easy'ish plat however finished countless times in the past.
Skyward Sword HD, not big on either control system and I've finished twice on Wii.
Sonic Colours: Ultimate
Submerged: Hidden Depths
Valkyria Chronicles 4
Watch Dogs 2
Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA


Lot of RPG's in the fringe section, and I am planning on playing two before even getting to these but hey if Balla wants to go hey after the main backlog, you should check out Ys VIII next, then I'll keep it in mind.

Also even though I say not buying new games, Halo Infinite will be added to Game Pass and maybe something added to NSO but these services I've paid for anyway.

My Switch backlog is madness.

When I buy a new and non-retro game, I’m best to just play it as soon as. At least my Switch backlog is mostly just ACA NeoGeo and SEGA AGES games now, but there’s still a handful of modern games I best get through. It’s years since I bought stuff like Oxenfree, Ori & The Blind Forest and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, and they’ve gone years untouched.

In my defence, a lot of my Switch backlog was made up of those random eShop games you sometimes get for free, from Qubic Games and that. I’ve deleted those from my menu. Those just made a problem look and feel worse.

Once I’m done with Shining Pearl, I’m all sussed for what I’ll go onto next. It’s taken a bit of willpower for nearly a year, but I’ve left Bowser’s Fury as my main Christmas game for 2021. I'm really looking forward to finally starting that. Afterward, I’ll go onto Metroid Dread in the new year. I’ll maybe squeeze a couple of games from the various Switch Online apps in between, and I’ll keep dipping into Animal Crossing New Horizons too.

I got Oxenfree not long after I bought my Switch in 2017. I played it and just didn't like it. Don't even consider it part of my considerable backlog.

Yeah I do try to play soon as Cappa but take past week, Halo Infinite Multiplayer come out and mates playing that. So instead of playing Guardians of the Galaxy, free time is Halo.

Oxenfree is a banger.

I'm guilty of multiplayer stuff taking up most of my time as well or I either resort to playing comfy replayable games like MH or PES. I think I need to make a new 'to play' list that fits in my new games I've bought over the last month or so.

I've fallen out of that. I used to spend huge chunks of time playing mainly Smash, but also things like Mario Tennis and Meteos - as Jas says, titles I found comfy and replayable. Now that I don't have so much time, that feels like time... wasted if that makes sense? Which is obviously nonsense, because if you're enjoying games then that's the most you can hope for from them. It does mean that I enjoy those games less. The result is that I get through more games, which can be a good thing (for a backlog) or a bad thing (for a bank balance).

Obviously the worst of both worlds is buying a bunch of games, not getting to them, and then buying a bunch more! But as long as it doesn't put the buyer in a difficult place financially, that 'worst' is a long way off being actually bad.

Honestly my backlog across all consoles is well into the hundreds so I really need to get that under control. And tbh I'm saving money to buy a house so spending less on games for a year sounds like a sensible idea when I have so much already to play plus game pass!

Eof there, sailing awfully close to the 'worst' actually being bad. Razz
