Versus the Infinite Backlog!
Inspired by the efforts of Kelron and Groovychainsaw (among others) I decided to tackle my 300+ strong backlog of games that I still need to play, which extends not only into classic PC Gaming, but into something like the Gamecube games or something. Actually, I'm kind of scared of that part...
Anyway, I made a Steam group for moral support, competition and the like, and I will begin populating my list of the Backloggery. You'll find links to both in my signature.

"Backlogs destroy the gaming market!" (a yet unknown game publisher's spokesperson, 12 months from now)

"Every purchase of our great games come now with 12 months activation key which can be renewed just for small payment of $14.99. That will ensure that people play games when they supposed to instead of creating a massive backlogs and then not buying new products or skipping new releases. That hurts our business but as well hurts our customers who miss on so much when our games are just brand new"

And there's this thread in Game Clubs, etc, where we're trying to pick a game each month and go through it with some moral support, discussion, etc. Seems like the proper place for it if we're trying to establish a group for backlog tackling purposes.weekendwarrio.rs - We've got more games than time...
