Now that the TA Game of the Year voting has finished up, we can all look ahead to the ridiculously good calendar of games for 2012. Well, all of us except for those who have a sea of games in their backlog to play first.

Are you in that group, where buying the games is more of a hobby -- maybe even an addiction, and you don't always give yourself the time to, you know, play them?

Tell us in this week's poll, how many games are in your backlog?
Poll: How many games are in your backlog?
  • 7.0% - 0 (Say 'No' to backlogs)
  • 24.7% - 1-5 (Still in control)
  • 19.3% - 6-10 (Couldn't pass up on those sales, huh?)
  • 15.8% - 11-20 (Do you live at a game retailer or something?)
  • 7.1% - 21-30 (The first step is admitting you have a problem)
  • 26.1% - 31+ (Someone should throw you a lifejacket, you're drowning!)

  • We had 1,237 responses to the poll.

    A few (1-5) XBLA's I bought at 200MSP that I was only semi-interested in. I generally play games as I buy them.

    I have 41

    It was a pain in the ass to track them, eventually I just made a personal leaderboard and made a thread with the list.

    I'm horrible when it comes to backlogs. I did my bean dive June 2011, had about 130 games to do. I brought it down to 0, and by October I was back to around 40. Which I brought back to 0, and I'm now back around 40. I can't pass up a good deal when I want the itemcry

    0 - Backlogs to me are pointless, I play games for the sheer enjoyment and fun, I buy games when I want to play them, unless 2 or more games that I am excited for are released on the same day (which is never) that would then be the only reason I'd have somewhat of a backlog.

    65, a list of which is in my blog. I've been really fighting to hold off buying games lately unless there's a really good DOTW until I get it down, but it seems to keep growing nonetheless. I'm even making an effort to start new games for the GTASC and it still manages to keep growing. At least when the DOTW is revealed to be terrible I can let out a sigh of relief.

    Haha I thought GTASC would help my backlog too... I touched only 1 or 2 games from it. My plan is to have no backlog when Mass Effect 3 releases. That way I have no unplayed games to worry about, just ME3

    Dead Space 2
    Viva Pinata
    Left 4 Dead 2

    Finishing games is another story for me.
