I purchased my Switch 2 months ago.

Since then, I’ve bought Splatoon 2, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Zelda:BotW, Doom, Super Mario Odyssey, MK8D, Nine Parchments, ARMS, Immortal Redneck, Cat Quest, SteamWorld Dig 1 & 2, SteamWorld Heist, Manticore, Stardew Valley, Earth Wars, Guns Glory & Cannoli, and Sky Rogue.

With one or two exceptions, I like all of these games. I’ve only finished Cat Quest (mostly because it’s short). I’m still actively playing almost all of them.

I tried to talk myself out of getting Battle Chasers today. It almost worked. But it’s an old-school JRPG-style game. I love JRPG’s. So, it’s downloading.

I’m creating a backlog I may never be able to finish. I need to be physically restrained from purchasing any more games for a while.

Thank you for sharing @Ryzaerian. Welcome to AAA. Arcade Addicts Anonymous. I'm Grail. I uhhh started playing arcade games in the 80's and it's just become a way of life. If I don't have a video game to play I can get twitchy...and get the urge to score (points that is.)

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

@Ryzaerian
1. Make a list of games that you really need to buy.
2. Watch from Youtube for checking gameplay trailer.
3. Think again if the games you want to buy are really Worthy. Compare the games with other games that have similarity.
4. Write down games that you want to buy during 1 month. Spread the list for each months. For example: Games A & B for January, Games C & D for February, Only 1 game for March due to its price, etc.
5. Calculate your purchases with your remaining money you have. Always save your money for something important than games (Food, Beverages, Medicine, Clothing, Wearable items, etc)
6. Be patient if you cannot play the games in hurry.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)
5. ARMS (8 / 10)

You still play Arcade machine games ?
I still play DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) Arcade until today since year 2003.

And playing DDR Arcade is my Ritual every Sunday at TimeZone Super Mall Surabaya (DDR X2 Arcade) & Amazone Pakuwon Trade Centre Surabaya (DDR MAX 2 / 7th Mix Arcade). Both of those Arcade Center are in the same buildings, so i can visit them quickly.

My Top 5 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (10 / 10)
2. The Sims series (9 / 10)
3. Portal Knights Switch (9 / 10)
4. Animal Crossing New Leaf 3DS (9 / 10)

Juts get what you like playing first the rest you are not sure but interest you can hold off till price drop or sales.
Most of us have backlog, lol! Nothing to worry about, lol!

I buy only what I like (usually those are instance like after I watch trailers)
Games on the fence but still a little interested, I wait for the game release and will watch gameplay (sometime repeat with no commentary) and then wait for pre-owned/ sales/ price drop.

My Brain, eyes, and fingers are not team player. They don't coordinate with each other.

@Ryzaerian Don't be too hard on yourself it's an exciting time when you get a new console and get caught up in all the games available to you. I can relate, having bought myself a PS4 about a month ago. I bought myself ten games for it since getting it and I still have a bunch I'd like to get over the summer. It's disproportional to the number of games I usually get in a year but I know I'll slow down once I have my "must have" library of games I've always wanted to try. Then I'll wait for new releases to go down a bit in price before buying and things will even themselves out. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

As long as you still have comfortable amount of money still even after splurging them all, why not increase that backlog?

As long as its game you're interested in and happy to buy, nothing's wrong

Welcome to the club. My backlog has only grown and continues to do so.

Here is what it looks like as of now:

Breath of the Wild(almost 200 hours in, still not done)
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
SteamWorld Dig
The Mummy Demastered
Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Risky Boots DLC
Blaster Master Zero Shovel Knight and Shantae DLC
Sonic Mania(attempting to get all Chaos Emeralds, plus Knuckles and Tails story mode)
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe(Gold on every GP on every setting)
Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
Super Mario Odyssey(post-game content)
Doom
Disgaea 5 Complete

And it's only going to get bigger in the coming months. I've got Wolfenstein II and Octopath Traveler on pre-order, and will be pre-ordering Smash Bros as well as getting Yoshi and Hyrule Warriors. Plus King of Cards will be dropping for Shovel Knight Treasure Trove later this year. And I'm in the market for a new PC meaning I'll be finally getting into Steam and games like Monster Prom and such.

I could start my own block-based building game a la Minecraft just using games in my backlog as the blocks. It's glorious.

I've finished most of my Switch games (at least the ones that can be "completed"). But, as a representative of "retro gamers anonymous", I have games from 1989 I still haven't finished.

We're all doomed in the most beautiful way.

Thanks for all of the support and letting me share. And of course Battle Chasers is awesome. xD

My backlog is so big that I could stop buying any more Switch games today and I'd still be tackling it in 5 years. Of course that ain't going to happen so I have to face facts ,it's insurmountable so why not just keep making it bigger. I can forsee a time when the size of my 'yet to play' Switch collection rivals the entire game library of past consoles I've owned.

My arcade/Neo Geo collection alone stands at 48 titles.

That's easier said then done...I got 3DS games I need to still finish and now with NS games that makes everything even more backlog. I think going back and forth this is what makes gaming worth while so you don't get so bored out.
