I have decided to seriously work on massacring my backlog.
No more adding to it for a while.
No more hitting used game shops.
No more even looking at what's for sale any given week on Xbox Live.
It is me vs a backlog of over 800 games between the 360 and the One.
I will focus primarily on SP campaign completion, and on doing blind (meaning "no use of walkthroughs or achievement guides") first playthroughs of the campaigns on games I already own. Using a walkthrough tends to make gaming feel more like work than it needs to be, after all.
I even started a leaderboard to try to snare in some like-minded people with epic backlogs to tackle. Think of it as peer motivation, or something like that.The Official Backlog Massacre Leaderboard
Granted, I do have real life commitments that make it impossible for me to make a full-time job out of this, but if it were a full-time job, I think it would stop being fun after a while. I work at my job, I volunteer, I socialize. Gaming is what I do in my solitary downtime, which is a few hours a day most days, anyway.
Anybody want to join me in this epic quest to massacre the backlog?
