Lindemann Syndrome Anonymous (LSA): The Backlog Thread.
« on: June 18, 2013, 01:22:13 PM »
when i purchased animal crossing i also picked up a few other things such as cave story and  the oracle games.
i have barely touched any of them
additionally i still have some ambassador games left to complete....

the 3DS is turning into my downloadable backlog and that frightens me.

its nowhere near substantial enough to cause me to create a backloggery but still...

I can never find anything with that search.  In fact the only one I know that really could was Vudu and I think he cheated with Google somehow.  I'm not counting Megabyte because he has Database access.  If I had that it be a whole different story.

Did you really have to start this up less than three weeks from the next Steam sale?

Steam calculator's got me at $2,500.

Doesn't seem to want to bring up mine.  I'll have to try at home when I'm with Steam to make sure I have the right stuff.

I know. I never bothered with the Wii Virtual Console much since I basically owned the original physical copies of most of the stuff I'd want to play. There were a couple games I didn't have but most of the stuff I'd want to play was accounted for.

However, with the 3DS Virtual Console, there are a bunch of GB and GBC games I never played and have been buying. I tried to hold back from purchasing too many since I also had a bunch of ambassador games to get through and 3DS games as well. But when the Zelda GBC games were released, I figured I'd finally buy a bunch more VC games at the same time and get it done at once. So, I've still got 4 GBA ambassador games to get through, 4 3DS I've yet to start and I want to pick up Animal Crossing once I find it, and now 8 VC games not to mention Zelda Four Swords and a ton of DS games I've got backlogged. Plus, there are still other VC and E-Shop games I'd like to get and some 3DS titles soon to be released.

The 3DS games monsoon is upon us! There is no more drought.

At least for me.

I own 21 digital retail 3DS games and 48 eShop games, as well as a dozen Wii U retail games, 8-10 eShop games and probably a dozen VC games across both platforms, and I've beaten virtually none of them. I'm starting to chip away at them, but it's going to take a while.

Games are supposed to be entertainment, what's the fun in forcing yourself to play more games?

Though i can definitely relate, cause i occasionally feel some pangs of guilt looking at my shelves with GC, GBA, Xbox, DS, 3DS, Wii and Wii U games. That's not counting digital sutff on Steam, and VC on Wii and Wii U and eShop stuff on 3DS and Wii U.

This is why I stopped bothering anticipating the Steam sales.  I have an obscene backlog between my steam profile and my console games, some which require a considerable time sink to make decent progress (Animal Crossing & Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, to be specific).


Choice and affordable gaming is a good problem to have, but I have much more finite time than I did when I was a teenager or in college that I get the feeling I'll simply never get around to playing all these games I already have.

I can't speak for pokepal, but for me it's that I've spent so much of my money on all these games, that it would be irresponsible to continue amassing games at the same frequency. 


To me, I don't plan on finishing every game I purchased (on Steam, at least), but I intend on giving each game I have up to an hour to capture my interest.  If it doesn't by then, or I find the game not fun, then I would mark it as a bad purchase decision and move on.

its moreso otherwise you almost forget they exist(warioware)
when I was making my list I was basically asking myself how much I really want to complete some of these games... to be honest some of them I decided that I really don't care if I complete them or not (Zelda 2, fusion if we never get restore points, and warioland 4)....

if I get a game I make a conscious effort to at least play around 15 minutes of it,  these are games that I have decided I want to complete and see to the end because I enjoy them but with new releases I have to put them aside and sometimes forget about them

Oh God I don't even bother any more.  I no longer make any apologies for what I've done.

This is what I am.
its ok... we are all in this together...

Yo, seriously, play Kid Icarus 3D Classics. Its the best version of the game and if you stick with the insane opening levels the difficulty dips significantly later.

Yikes I'm not sure I could face my backlog like this head on... Would probably get overwhelmed once you start counting the amount of hours needed. I think I always buy more than I can actually play.


Are you trying to finish them all? Or just try out for a while? I noticed you had Affordable Space Adventures listed twice, so that's one less already! ;) Great game though, and not very long either. I'm also a big fan of that Pokémon TCG release for GBC, so if you're into cardgames at all I would recommend giving that a look.
