How far do I go back before I consider it no longer in my backlog of games, but games that I never plan on playing. I have a copy of loki for the PC (a dungeon crawler from 2007) that I played for 1 hour and then never played again.

I'm luck in so far as i only have consoles, so usually console players don't have as big a back catalogue as pc players. I have bought about 6 games (3 hd collections) in the last few months which i have every intention of playing in the coming months as i knew i was going to be broke so needed something to pass the time.

However, i do intend on building a rig at some stage this year, and i'm sure i'll get sucked in by the steam sales, et al.

Sure I've "gone back" to STALKER twice, still not done.

List is probably 40 titles+. Humble bundles, steam sales, it all racks up.

Next will probably be Trine 2 since I got it with my 3 month PS Plus sub so need to play it before the subscription runs out. Then maybe the first Alice to get it out of the way for when I want to play Madness Returns.
As for the GTAs, have only played GTA 1 and 2 a bit. Only played 2 for the tank Kill Frenzies.
Problem is, there are so many games there that are meant to be good. Plus I'm a big fan of The Warriors and the Thing movies.

The list didn't include Little Big Planet, Dead Nation(Thanks PSN rewards), Outland or Beyond Good and Evil.

It's a hard life

Only started playing skyrim last month. I've had it since release. Still haven't opened Saints Row 3. A rake load of others that have only seen a few hours gameplay. As for the Steam sales? Forget about it. At least Half my list is unplayed. Tons of old point and clicks. And now I see gog have released theme hospital. Obviously I'll have to buy that and never get around to playing it.
