Everyone has games they bought that have just been left waiting to be played. Probably because they were cheap when you came across them or you just got hooked on another game. PC gamers for sure will have a library of games not touched because of sales. Here's mine..


  • Fallout 4
  • MGSV Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain
  • Vanquish
  • AC Rogue
  • AC Origins (currently playing)
  • Watch Dogs 2


  • Zelda BOTW, i finished main story last night but still loads to do!


  • The Last of us
  • Horizon Zero Dawn Complete edition
  • Uncharted 4
  • Uncharted The lost legacy


  • Has no games to finish

Too many to list thanks to Steam sales. As a PC gamer, recent AAA games only cost $5-10. Indie games go for $1-5.

None. I played every game I bought.

Now, if the thread title was Games I Played and Got Bored With, I have several. It's no coincidence they're all 3rd-person games.

Games I haven't even started yet would be:

  • Haydee
  • Ghost Recon: Wildlands
  • Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
  • Sonic Mania
  • Gundam Versus

That about covers it and unknown more games I may have overlooked in my Steam Library but other then that, those games I listed are the one's I bought in 2017.

Too many to list. Especially if we count steam sales or digital PSN games (or PS+) - which would probably be more than 100 total. But really, I had quite a few physical games untouched as well. A few dozen at least between PS3/PS4/3DS. My PS3 backlog at this point will probably never be touched. Maybe I'll give it another got to clean up some games I really did want to play, but it's tough to spend time with PS3 with a growing PS4 backlog.

My problem lately has been that I've been spending time on "time-sink" games like MGS V and Battlefront 2, and even some of my backlog are huge time sinks. I should probably spend a few months just playing 10 hour single player campaigns just so I feel I'm putting a dent in my backlog.

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

I got both on sale from Best Buy a couple of years or so ago, and both games sadly had some issues that made it hard for me to really get into them (Luigi's Mansion only allows you to save in between missions, which is horrible for a portable game or any game in general. ALBW is just directionless and I'm not really fond of playing ALTTP look-alike game anyway)

I played the first Asylum the day it was available and loved it... Arkham City launched when I was busy and I didn't have the time to fully immerse my self in it, Knight just came out with serious issues on PC so I avoided it and now I just can't stop playing PUBG so pretty much every game right now is being ignored even BoTW on my Switch has taken a passenger seat.

I'm sure most people that have huge backlogs are buying games they "want" to play, I sure as hell don't buy any rubbish games. The problem is most of us get lured by the "sales" and end up with more things than we legitimately have time for. This is especially true this time of year, I got a bunch of games from Black Friday and Christmas gifts that I probably won't finish for months - and a few I haven't even started yet. Yet, I'm sure throughout 2018 I'll buy at least a few games, ad also participate in a few digital sales. Hell, I still have Christmas stuff from prior years that I still "want" to play, but haven't had time to start yet - because there are also games on the horizon that I anticipate even more. That's before we even get into the random digital games, which is where most people probably really pile onto their games backlog (Steam sales, PSN flash sales, and such).

I try not to buy games "just for the hell of it" unless I feel the price is so ridiculously low that it probably won't go any lower. Generally, if I'm buying a game brand new on release, I'll get into it right away (otherwise it would be an even more ridiculous waste). If it's an older game, then I'll just play it whenever.

Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice

Elite Dangerous: Horizons (I'm looking into setting up VR + HOTAS + Voice Attack but man that's a lot of trouble to play one game)

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky

Shadow Warrior 2

Oh and the BOTW DLC's (both).

As a PC gamer; too many and I have no idea how many that is. If I was sixteen id be in heaven as there would never be enough for me to play in the 16 bit era. Nowadays I get stuck into good games that keep me playing for weeks , months, years even. I just dont have time for everything.

Meanwhile on Xbox... an XBOX exclusive games drought.

Sorry couldnt resist, hey its SW.

I'm planning on jumping back into some games I played before, never finished, but very much would like to now.

In a way I think it was smart for XBox to invest in BC this gen, because there were many games over the past decade that I could stand to devote more time to.

This morning I set up my HOTASS and VR with Elite Dangerous and it seems to almost work perfectly now. Clutch wouldn't work (I don't know what clutch means but it didn't work) but I think I fixed it now. The game feels real cool in VR. I did the training mission to dock/launch and move the ship, and it gives stations and planets a sense of presence that feels, well, Dangerous.

I have no idea what the point of the game is, but I'll just fly around a little. I guess the point of a simmy space game is to do just that. But I like setting or having goals in a game. Guess I'll see what's for sale, and set an economic goal.

I picked up GTA4 Complete Edition on the PSN for €7.99 so I was thinking of giving that a look. Partly because I'm in the mood for something a bit more realistic, with all the GTA5 I've been playing lately, but also because I never got around to playing the Ballad of Gay Tony expansion.

Too many to list. Steam always gets me with their sales. When AAA games cost <$5, you tend to buy a lot of them. One of the many reasons why PC gaming is the best,

I generally don’t buy games to stick in a back log that I’m never going to play. Although I did pick up Dark Souls 3 during the Steam Christmas sales and I’ve yet to start that as I’m to addicted to finding moons in Odyssey.

Persona 5 and Kingdom Hearts PS4 remaster.

Good luck trying to find time for MGSV. Even if you don't do all the extra stuff I did. You are still looking at a game that will take longer than the average RPG to finish.

I have very few games with under 20 hours of play time. I did do two purchases that included 'other games' that I never played though.

I have over 360+ games installed on my 5TB external hard drive for my Xbox One. Thanks to consumer friendly options like GamePass, EA Access, Free Play Days and GwG, I don't know when I'll ever complete some of these games and finish them this gen. I did the same thing last gen where there were so many games but I didn't have time to play all of them. So this is why BC is so important because I get a chance to play those games that I've missed on current more reliable consoles. And thanks to things like Microsoft/Bing/Xbox Rewards which offers you free gift cards like Xbox gift cards and such, I've bought a bunch which got added to the backlog. It's just too many to count but in the hundreds. And they say Xbox have no games to play lol.
