As I get older, I just try to enjoy myself. I used to be a bit of a completionist, and I still am if I really love a game, but I'm not going to force myself to 100% something when I could be having more fun playing something else.

I'm trying to learn from your example, senpai.

I've been trying to be better about not stressing over my backlog as much, but I still get a bit anxious about my unbeaten games. (I get anxious about a lot of things though, so that's probably a different issue there :|) I know there really isn't anything wrong with it as long as I'm not spending my grocery food money on games or something, but it's difficult sometimes.

At least I'm beating many more games than I used to, so that's been helping a bit. Even if I decide not to beat a game, that also helps to just get it off my shelf and out of mind. I'm especially running out of shelf space, so the fewer unwanted games on it, the better.

I know Exhuminator said it well before: view it as a library, not a backlog. There's no need to actually complete everything you have.

Oh, is that how normal people solve that problem? I just buy more shelves. :lol:

I find it fun to try to go for sets. Say, like trying to beat ever SNES fighting game or RPG. That's what I've been focusing on for a while, but I've been having a blast seeing all the variety within each set I look at. It becomes less a chore and makes the act of beating them into a kind of game in its own right.

That's how I tend to focus my collection. Like, I made it a point to collect every Resident Evil game, then every Army Men game, now I'm working on collecting every port of Corpse Killer (because I have a bizarre fascination with that game).

Exactly, only when I think of sets, it's becoming less of a collecting thing and more of a beating thing so I can say I've done it, but also so I can have knowledge of it, hopefully find some piece I enjoy, and can pass on what I learn to others.

Well I probably would get another shelf, but I don't have room in the game room for another! I could probably fit another in the living room, but then I would have to actually walk over there to get my games :P

That is rad. :lol:

I do the same thing. I have a pretty extensive collection - I honestly don't know how many games I own, but I estimated it at 3000+ earlier this year - and I try also try to go for complete sets and sub-sets. I have quite a few (e.g., first-party Atari 5200 games, Wisdom Tree NES games, Atari 2600 first-party picture label games. Atari 2600 M-Network games, etc.), and I have found that trying to collect sets and sub-sets is a great way to keep my collecting efforts focused.

DiRT Showdown is a solid game, and especially fun are the Demolition Derby-based events. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this one, as it is probably the most fun I've had with a racing game in a year or more.

I soloed the campaign for Battleborn, which was no small feat as some of the levels are quite challenging and required a few restarts after failing them. I actually really like the gameplay and world in Battleborn, and I think that the 20 hours it took me to finish the campaign was well worth its $15 I paid when it was bundled up in the recent 2K bundle. It is not as good as Borderlands 2 (or even close), but it scratches some of the same itch and has enough of the feel of that game that if you enjoyed your time in that series you should at least check this out too.
