So many games owned.....

Just messing around, playing a bunch of older games I never finished and just realized. These games are awesome. Plus I just jumped on GTA4 expansions, Metro 2033, Battlefield Bad Company 2, Fallout NV (beat but need to do tons of stuff).... I literally have at least 25 classic games from 1995-2010 to finish.

I have to set a limit on this madness. Starting today, I cannot buy a single new game until i finish all of my games. Which will at least take the next year of regular gaming time. Its good actually, I don't have to worry about faster parts because all the games I have now were designed for my system.

Anyone else in a similar bind?

Yes, but I'm not nearly as methodical as you. I just look through them and play whatever I feel like playing that day.

And I will continue to buy new games if I want them. :lol:

Same here. I'm loaded up with games, I must not buy anymore. Absolute foolishness.

Arma 2 & Arrowhead, Crysis, Dragon Age Ultimate Edition, Stalker Trilogy, Metro 2033, Arkham Asylum, Fallout NV and more ...need finishing.

I'm glad there isn't much out till Feb/March time.

I am in the same situation, I shouldn't buy anymore games till I finish everything I bought already, but I know I will especially if the price is right. I don't mind the backlog since I sometimes buy games knowing I will never finish them completely (like a lot of the indie, puzzle, and RTS games).

My biggest problem is when one game overtakes another I generally never go back. I was playing Dragon Age Origins Awakening expansion then I got Borderlands and I haven't played it since. Same thing happened with Saboteur, was playing it and liking it but then Mass Effect 2 and I never played it again. Got minecraft but then Fallout New Vegas and I haven't even started minecraft since.

Way behind, instituting the same policy - no more purchases until I finish what I've got.

We'll see how well I adhere to this policy during the Steam holiday sale.

Same policy here, Starcraft 2 and Fallout NV were my last purchases about 4 months apart.

I never finished the SC2 campaign, but played a little online. I haven't touched it in a bit. Fallout NV I finished but may play again once I finish some other games.

I need to finish some Dragon Age and Mass Effect 2 stuff, also Mafia 2, Cryostasis, Batman, Uncharted 2, Alan Wake and a few other console titles as well. I'm backlogged on multiple platforms....

The only game I am buying in the foreseeable future is the WoW Cataclysm Expansion (tomorrow), but that never ends, so....lol.

Yeah seriously. I also beat alan wake, probably because it was a short game. A fantastic game but a short one.

:lol: I don't buy another game until I finish the one I previously bought. Still working on BFBC2 MP. That and I rarely buy games - It takes an extremely well made game to get me to purchase it.

SHIFT 2 Unleashed (currently playing this)
DiRT 3
Crysis 2

And still Stalker CoP with the Complete Mod.

I have lots of games I bought during a Steam sale but I don't count those. I don't even have plans to play most of them :p

I ve been eye ing up dirt 3 for a while now. I m up to level 50 something in dirt 2. How many more tracks/cars are in dirt 3 and how much improved is dirt 3 from dirt 2?

Also, any word on crysis 2 dx11?

Man I remember Beyond Good and Evil. I got to the end but I could never beat the last boss. I even had friends try to beat him but they couldn't either. I remember it being a really frustrating fight, and I had a pretty crappy controller back then too haha!

My list of games I still need to beat is shrinking rapidly as of late, but there's still plenty more to go.

NBA2k11 - Need to finish leveling up my My Player character, so he's worth a crap in multiplayer games.

Starcraft II - Need to finish the campaign. The new one is on it's way out and I'm still only halfway finished with the original one.

Arma II - Almost every single player campaign is untouched.. I don't know if I'll ever get around to doing them. I always end up just playing on servers lol

Batman Arkham Asylum - Still need to finish this one off. Great game, I wish I could run the Physx though :(

Dead Space 2 - Need to finish this game, but I'm scared...

Neverwinter Nights 2 - I don't know how close I am to finishing this one. I've been playing it off and on for a few years now and It just keeps going and going lol.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood - I'm about halfway through. Great game!

The Witcher 2 - About halfway through on this one too.

How can You people play like 10 games at one time? I cant imaging doing that. I want most experience from games I play. So If I want to replay The Darkness game, I must be sure that nothing will come in my way ,becouse I hate to leave unfinished game (Even tho I want to replay this one. Ive finished it only 2 times and its great!)

Out of these games Ive have only played and finished Batman, Dead Space2 and Assassins Creed Brotherhood.

All 3 are very good games, but Brotherhood was most addicting for me becouse of economics and purchasing all the shops etc and Batman had one of best sp experiences Ive ever seen
