#LoveYourBacklog Week 2020

So, I’ve been seeing a lot of entries popping up the past day or so talking about loving our backlogs, so I went back to the source, and then decided I could get on this bandwagon as well.

I actually love my backlog (or library, as I prefer to call it) all the time! What could be better than hours upon hours of entertainment right at my fingertips?

Starting from my GoG Galaxy stats, and adding in my Twitch games, as well as games I have on Itch.io and some others that are on stand alone launchers or that are DRM free, I’ve skyrocketed past 3000 games. Sure, they’re not all backlog titles per se – some I’ve finished, and some others I’m unlikely to ever return to for one reason or another. But they’re there, and I could play any of them at any time.

Nothing wrong with a 10,000 hour library, right?

And with that giant admission out of the way, on to the questions!

A game you’re eager to play, but haven’t yet started:

Ignoring for the moment the 10 games I am planning to dive into during 2020, I am really itching to get into Re:Legend.

A game you’ve started several times but haven’t yet finished:

Bioshock. I am forever getting a couple hours into the game and wandering off. It’s absolutely not because I’ve terrified myself or anything*.

*this is absolutely why I keep wandering off.

The most recent addition to your library:

Earlier today, I was adding games from the February Humble Choice, and the last key I redeemed was for Eliza.

The game which has spent the most time on your backlog:

I picked up a free copy of Portal from Steam way back in May of 2010. Still haven’t touched it.

The person responsible for adding the most entries to your backlog:

Seriously, I have no one to blame but myself. I love all kinds of games, and I cannot resist a deal.

As for #MaybeInMarch? Well, I suppose it could happen.

  1. Thanks so much for joining in! Looking forward to hearing what you think about Eliza; it has been on my radar for a while and I think I’d really enjoy it, but I haven’t yet had the chance to pick it up. 🙂


    1. It’s weird because Portal (and Portal 2, which I also own) should be games I’m really into, and with such reasonable playtimes … I don’t know. I have no idea what’s holding me back from playing them. Other than, of course, all the other stuff I also want to play.
