    I've got a terrible habit of buying far too many games every time there's a sale (usually on GOG, occasionally on Steam or Humble Bundle), despite the fact all my free time goes towards anime. As a result, I've got quite the backlog of games I haven't even loaded up once:

    Tagged due to length
    Inherit the Earth
    Ishar (1-3)
    Baldur's Gate (1 & 2)
    Icewind Dale
    The 11th Hour
    Rex Nebular and the Cosmic Gender Bender
    Challenge of the Five Realms
    Fran Bow
    Phantasmagoria 2
    King's Quest (4-6)
    Quest for Glory (1-5)
    Renowned Explorers
    Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
    Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes
    Lands of Lore (1 & 2)
    Worms Forts: Under Siege
    Divine Divinity
    Crystals of Arborea
    Flight of the Amazon Queen
    Avernum (3-6)
    Blades of Avernum
    Master of Magic
    Driftmoon
    Dragonsphere
    System Shock 2
    Battle Realms
    Ultima 4
    Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire
    Antichamber
    ...and a load of others that I've played a little of but didn't made much progress


    I'm curious to see what other people have on their backlogs, or whether it's just me that has this problem. :p:

    Oh gosh, I've got a massive backlog. Looking througn my Steam library reminded me of how much rubbish I have, I wish there was a way to remove games...

    Many dozens that I'm probably never going to touch because they came in bundles, although I might get round to playing some of these...
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Age of Empires III
    Amnesia: Memories
    Antichamber
    Besiege
    A Bird Story
    Eden*
    Factorio
    Fault - Milestone One & Two
    FEZ
    Half Life 2 Episode One & Two
    Shadowrun Dragonfall
    This War Of Mine
    The Vanishing of Ethan Carter

    We have Antichamber in common! :five:

    On Steam, I've made two categories ('Later' and 'Do Not Want') where I stick games I'm in no hurry to play, and that I keep minimized. Makes things look much tidier. :p: I've not bought a bundle in years, back when I had enough time on my hands to at least check out the unwanted extras for a few minutes, otherwise I'd have included them as well.

    That's a very good idea, I will do that now! Merci!

    What I usually do is buy a game first, complete it fully, then buy the next game. (Unless there's a sale/new game then I can't help myself. :ninja: )

    I feel your pain
    I have a few myself, and in a way I view it as a sign of disorganisation to not finish a game/book before starting a new one. So my resolution has been to finish before starting anything new. And the bad thing about having backlogs is after a long absence you have to re-immerse yourself.
    Anyway here is my list:

    Medieval totalwar

    Definitely get started with Skyrim, such a great game (...and the mods...). Assassin's Creed 2 is the only one in the franchise I enjoyed.

    I played a bit of it and got bored, the melee combat is horrific and I didn't like how if you killed someone with nobody around a magical alarm would go off and guards would randomly appear to attack, ESO does this **** too.

    AC2 was good for the 5 minutes I played it

    350 games in Steam out of 400 I still need to play. Spent way too much money.

    Also, don't play Skyrim. Terrible game made to appeal to the casual audience.

    If you think I'm going to trust any iso file coming from you, you've got another thought coming I'm afraid. I do not want my computer to start flashing horror pictures when I turn it on.
