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.
Currently gathering dust and unplayed...
Mass Effect 3
Mustn't buy anything else for a few months.
Or just send them to me and that sorts out the problem
PS3 - Alice Madness Returns and the free first game
God of War Collection 2
Wii - No More Heroes 2
PS2 - GTA 3 and Vice City
Gamecube - Eternal Darkness
Medal of Honour
MGS Twin Snakes
RE 0, 2, 3, 4
Rogue Squadron 2
Zelda Collector's Edition
3DS - Ocarina of Time (Working on it at the moment)
Should get that cleared any time now.
I'm actually putting a self imposed ban on game buying now. Though don't think there's anything else out there that I want.
Sure I've "gone back" to STALKER twice, still not done.
List is probably 40 titles+. Humble bundles, steam sales, it all racks up.
Just said i'd add that to your post! Put everything else aside and play these.
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
I have 128 unbeaten games, many unplayed.
That is an incredible stack of games to be looking forward too
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.
Yeah I really need to get stuck into a few of them soon. Stupid life eating into my game time

Okay, we all have back catalogue stuff. But seriously mate.....you are missing out .
I was looking through my collection on the iPhone (a cool app called Game Vault that used to be free) and I realise I have a pretty big pile of games I need to get to. I've split my list into two parts. Games that are unfinished but I feel the need to complete and those games that are still in the shrink-wrap.
