I currently own 155 games, and 70 of them are Wii games. How many games do you consider it too much?

I don't think you can have to many games. I just recently had the problem that I had no space for new games, just bought more shelves. But you can spent to much money on games, some people tend to spent more money on games than they can afford

You can't have too many games honestly. If you don't have time to play them but still buy them, then you might have too many.

When you have games for consoles you dont even own anymore (yeah, I have GTA IV, both the main story and Latd and bogt for the 360, but I no longer have the 360. Lol). Nah, my friend is just borrowing it since he paid half for it.

In all seriousness though, you cant own too many games, spend too much on them, sure but have too many? Impossible

I own just over 2,000 video games and still collecting. I don't think I have too much. IMO It's only too much if you don't have enough space or are using all of your money to build up your collection. Some people collecting everything and some just collect games they're interested in. The most important is to make sure you're only using extra money to put into the hobby and not messing with the money you use for essentials.

When your backlog is huge, that's a sign you should probably cut down on the buying.

You can't have too many. You can spend too much on games, especially if it's interfering with other areas of your life, like buying groceries or making rent, but you can't own too many games.

By the time I'm dead I'm going to have a gigantic collection. I think I have about 200 right now.

There is no such thing as too many! I may have filled up two large bookshelves...but that just means I need to buy a third!

I'd say when you have so many games that they take up more space than you do, like they're so piled up that you can't breathe, that'd be too many until you find a better place to put them.

I have no idea how many games I own. You can never own too much. lol. I don't plan on selling many of them. I bought Shaq Fu for the Sega Genesis for $2 when I went to Anime Boston. And you know what, it's really not that bad of a game. It's not great, but it doesn't suck. It's enjoyable. I don't know why the video game media bashes it so much.

I don't think I'd ever wanna get rid of any of my old games. I don't play them too much anymore, but I know that eventually I'll want to again.

You know you have too many games when you're not sure which game you're going to play and running out of space.

When you can't decide what to play.

When you're usually never in the right mood to play a specific game.

When you have a backlog that's over 10+ games.

When you turn into a compulsive shopper when any digital download sale appears.

You spend more time on the forums and surfing the web and reading about games than actually playing them.

When you buy Portal 2 and you don't even open it and take off it's shrink-wrap.

When all you could think about is The Witcher 2, and you ignore games you should be playing in your current game library.

When you buy a new 1TB+ hard drive because you run out of HDD space on your current drive.

When you either have a percentage of your closet or shelf space dedicated only for your games.

When you spend 10-30 mins looking at your game library on your desktop, deciding what you should play next.

You don't ever have too many games :D

I have an unconquerable backlog at this point, but as long as I get my money's worth out of a game (1$ per hour), it's fine with me. Just as long as you keep having fun. You have too many games when you go buy new ones and feel wretched for not finishing your old ones. Like I just started playing TF2 this week and it's keeping me from finishing Prey and Baldur's Gate, but it's totally worth it because the game is so freakin' fun.

When you look over your collection and won't want to play with 5/10 of them

You should be keeping only games that you like, give/sell the others, otherwise no matter how big your library of games are you won't have too much because they're all personally games that you love. I used to have a bunch, then I gave and/or sold them away because there were games on there that I was sure I'd never play again. But, there were games that I would never throw because I love them, an ex: The halo series, I got halo 1 to halo reach, halo wars, and the halo legends dvd, I'm into halo waypoint and I have the halo books, I love the series and would I ever throw them away?

I would probably say someone has too many games when their finances get affected. Otherwise, there isn't a limit.

Not possible. Say i am unemployed but have lots of spare money: i got time and games. So i buy and play and collect.

Also; some people buy games without ever playing them; they collect..nothing wrong with that either.

You can only have too many games when your starving and instead of buying essentials you turn around and head for that Gamestop store :p

When for every game you complete, you buy around 3 more. And then you get to a point where you realize that you're probably never gonna play half of these games.
