Unwieldy Game Libraries

by gennss Mon Dec 27, 2010 1:46 pm

No mater how much I slim down my library, i still have a proverbial ton of games I've yet to get to, and games I "MUST BUY" that keep making it bigger!

How do you control it?

stay off the internet :lol:

Dont follow gaming news and set goals for yourself before you buy another game. For example, you could say I must complete 3 games before I purchase one new game. If you follow that, your backlog will clear up eventually.

Good luck with that!

i just enjoy buying and selling games, i think. i have my collection and the games that i really love, and then i feel like i'm constantly just buying stuff and selling it, buying and selling. i think i like that aspect more than just hoarding. maybe i should open a game store.

I have kinda the same logic. The thing is, I can't force myself to play a game. I have to be in the mood, and I never know what I'm gonna be in the mood for. I can't just say, "Hey, I'll play this RPG that's been sitting on my shelf for years." I gotta be in the mood for it. So one day I just said fuck it, I'll play whatever I feel like it when I want to. I have a ton of games I own and haven't played yet, and a lot of games I want to pick up. But, whatever happens, happens.

Quoted For Truth.

(And aaron, as a current/former comic-collector, I do collect 'em to read 'em... but pick up a limited or pristine edition for storage purposes. Don't game publishers do the same thing now?)

My scheduling skills have died of dysentery; I hope to visit at least on a monthly basis.
Still, don't forget to tip your waitress.

I have my games really organized, doesn't really feel like a problem since it's so tidy.
