This sort of happened to me in late 2010 or early 2011.  That's when I started writing down lists of games I finished on the year - first in my university's gaming club's forums, and eventually on my own blog.  I started the Completion List 2013 and 2014 threads here as a companion to that more personal thing.  My backlog is worse than yours (but maybe not as bad as some of the others alluded to here), but setting goals and making lists has done very well for me. 

...but I still buy games.  It's my hobby and my obsession.  No way I'm quitting game-buying, with Dragon Age III and Persona 5 on the horizon.

Only have Propeller Knight and Tinker Knight left to go in Shovel Knight before I (presumably) can enter the tower.  This game is so good; definitely looking forward to Yacht Club Games' next joint.

Welp, the big tournament in Kuroko is over.  Now do they end on this note even when they could go further forward (Slam Dunk method), or do they make a team of all-stars and take on AMERICA!? (Eyeshield 21 method)

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team - I just had Dreamy Luigi summon a tornado of other Luigis to turn into a giant Luigi, then defeat a giant drill robot by slam dunking normal-sized Mario riding a Starman into the giant robot's heart.  Dreamy Luigi is the same as regular Luigi, except much handsomer and a product of the real Luigi's imagination.  Video games, man. 

Persona 2: Innocent Sin - I think I just turned a normal building into a demon casino with my mind.

I don't totally get what that game will be "about" exactly.  It looks like there will be quests in some form, since there were interactions in specific ways that make it seem like different humans and animals have different tasks and goals to accomplish.  But it looks gorgeous, could be something really cool, and I definitely want to hear more about it.

Yggdrasil.  How dare you put up a bunch of SF4 tracks up on the last page and neglect the best one? 

Africa - Small Airfield


Born to be Bone (Gitaroo Man) - the stage I could get past on Master Play....

FINALLY beat Bravely Default.  Had to fight the final boss three or four times, because my higher-risk quick-kill strategy (two Ninjas, one Thief, one Performer, Hasten World) was getting annihilated by the final form.  Eventually decided **** it and went for 3 dual-shield Knights with Blood Shields and Super Charge backed by a Spiritmaster.  Ultimate defense.  Man, that was a fun game once you get through the, uh, more repetitive parts.

Welp, more Bravely Default.  Got the Conjurer asterisk, leveled it up some, learned Obliterate and, well... long story short all four of my characters are at level 99, all jobs are at level 14, and Encounter Rate -100% is now permanent unless I decide to go hunting for Genome spells.  At the end of Chapter 7 now, and hopefully that means I'm near game's end.  BD has dominated my game time for a ~little too long.

Great episode!  Here's some of my favorite town music that wasn't already in the show:

Your Affection (Never More album version) - Persona 4
Boy Meets Girl (Twoson music) - Earthbound
Wonder Castle (Holt Village music) - Disgaea 2

Man, college football is just depressing for me. We've had some good teams and players over the years and even some 1st round picks since I attended (all linemen), but we haven't beaten our rival school in over a decade. I was actually writing my college application essays when I saw that last win.

Guess my alma mater without immediately calling me a douche and you get a sandwich.

Jordan Stanton.  DE from JMU.  Undrafted rookie on the Giants.  I flipped my **** when I realized.

I'm a Ravens fan.  Hasn't been a great month.

Bravely Default.  I'm at the end of Chapter 4 (or at least I assume I am), doing the Vampire Castle sidequest.  My characters are at level 54-55.  I killed all six dragons, but MAN the castle's regular enemies are kicking my ass.  Considering just turning off encounters and going straight to the boss, then using Performer/Stillness support to beat it.  In fact, I think I'll do just that.  *moseys over to charging station*

Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Lunar, Seiken Densetsu III (which I've always preferred to SoM), Super Mario RPG, and Skies of Arcadia.  Maaaybe Dragon Quest VIII Colorful JRPGs that are easy to understand and don't have mature themes.  Unless Lunar is more inappropriate than I remember.

Bravely Default, chapter 4.  Difficulty spike was pretty significant.  I can't just charge in stupidly and go for 1st-round victories all the time now.  Time to buy some shields!
