As it currently stands, I have a collection of about 20 or so odd games that I have yet to play or finish. Some aren’t even opened yet. For younger gamers, this tends to be a non-issue. Either they have the time to get to the games they have, or they don’t have enough games to create a backlog in the first place. As the gaming landscape changes generationally, those of us who started gaming in the 70s/80s have found our lives evolving into new routines. This can cause a buildup of the very media we use to thrive off of. Along with the expansive length of games today, this causes a monumental backlog of “to-do” games that can, if left uncurated or ignored, lead to piles upon piles of unplayed games that can drive our spouses and significant others up the wall.
