The gaming juggle. Can you juggle your backlog?

Friends you find me in a difficult spot.

Actually that’s not quite true, it’s more like of a bit of a pickle. Yes that’s it, I am in a bit of a pickle and one entirely of my own making.

Let me tell you how it started. It was a cold day in December and, as usual during this time of the year, with the nights drawing in and days getting colder. I was sitting at home perusing various video game websites and seeing which games the various sites had listed as their personal games of the year. This is something I do every year because, A I like to read good things about games the games I bought during the year and B I like to see if there is anything good that I may have missed

Usually I haven’t missed that many games for the various consoles I am lucky to own and can normally scroll down the list, with a growing sense of accomplishment as I realise that I have played many of the games that had interested me during the year but, for some reason, I seemed to have missed out on a whole load of games this year.

Personally I blame The Last of Us 2. It’s a game I absolutely love but something I found incredibly hard to move on from. So from June until a few weeks ago, when I finally got over my funk and got back into my games I have already got a bit of a chunky backlog. You see I may not have been playing anything apart from a few things I had bounced off but I had still been buying games and coupled with a Christmas where I was lucky enough to get the new Spider-Man, Assassin’s Creed and Star Wars VR games I suddenly had a bit of a backlog of things I wanted to play and now you fund me trying to juggle all the new games I am lucky enough to have.

So that’s where you find me today wallowing in a problem that isn’t a problem at all. wondering just how to find time to play all the games that need to be played. I feel like a kid trying to give juggle his play time with his favourite toys and give equal play time too each.

It’s a nice problem to have.

How do you deal with your backlog?
