I have over 70. Learning to pick and choose to save money. Tips on how to let go?

I don't usually wishlist a ton of games, but I have like 7-8 at the moment on stuff like WarioWare, Dark Souls, Street Fighter and Animal Crossing.

As for advice on which to let go, I'd make a list of all your games on there and sort them into categories of 'Need', 'Want', 'Can Live W/o', that kind of stuff. From that, just eliminate the smallest ones until you're left with the definites. That's what works for me at least.

I never make a wish list as I always looking the games by myself from online shopping website with someone's help to order the games.

Between switch, wii u, and 3ds, probably upwards of 60, maybe 70.

I have 50ish…I mainly use it to see what goes on sale, the majority of my Switch games are all digital.

There's a limit at around 150-200 games, I found. After Switch launched, anytime I saw something interesting, I put it on the list. After a while, I hit the limit.

I have like 30 games on the wish list currently, but it's mainly games I won't buy unless they go on sale for $5 or less, because they aren't amazing games.

about 50 on my wish list, and around 15 games that have been announced for 2022 but aren't yet available to add just yet on the eShop's wish list. Stuff like The House of the Dead Remake, TMNT: Shredder's Revenge, PAC-MAN MUSEUM+, Bayonetta 3, Metal Slug Tactics, River City Girls Zero, Chocobo GP, Pocky & Rocky Reshrined, Sol Cresta, LOZ: BOTW2 etc

Plus, I've got about 145 games on Switch. Several of which are compilations packed with lots of games, lots of Arcade Archives, remasters. What Can I say, the Switch is amazing for 3rd party support. Hasn't been this good since the SNES. Anyways, having owned the switch for just over a year(Christmas 2020) my collection is beefing up quite nicely. A little late to the party!

123 at the moment. Most of them are Arcade Archives and Neo Geo games that I would be much happier paying $5 for than $10.

About a dozen. Nine times out of ten I buy a physical, so I try not to make a habit of buying digital games on day-one because chances are it'll get a physical release sometime down the road. Usually only those games where the publisher or developer have expressly said on social media that it was a digital-only release with no immediate plans for a physical release make the list (Grid, Strange Brigade, Hand of Fate 2, etc).

Is this thread some sort of joke?

Seriously. These are ****ing rookie numbers.

My main eshop account wishlist has 254 entries on it currently. I've got a couple of other accounts too with a few games on separate wishlists (some may duplicate the main list, can't check right now).

I hardly ever buy an eshop game unless it's on sale, and don't put many on the wishlist if there's a physical option.

The wishlist really needs a sort/filter function so I can filter games on sale.

According to Deku Deals I've got just over 200. If I include stuff I still want pick up on older consoles/PC then probably close to 500. Yeah, I'm never 'completing' the wishlist 😂

Don't ever let me hear you talking like that, dude. Where there's a wishlisted game, there's a target that can be taken out. One shot at a time if you have to. You've got this. Start tonight - get on the eshop and tick one off the list.

Then add 8 more to the wishlist after the Direct. Then go again.

@gcunit or anyone else,

Has anyone hit the wishlist limit? I hit the limit circa 2018 but, it was so long ago and, I didn't pay close attention to how many games it was.

@WoomyNNYes No, I'm not aware of any limit so far. P'raps an update somewhere along the lines has affected it.

@gcunit It's like the mythical Hydra though - I chop one off the wishlist and 2 appear in it's place 😂😂

Also, every game off the wishlist is a game onto the backlog, and that's nearly got as many games on it and has remarkably similar Hydra-like tendencies...

As I'm typing this Deku Deals email just came through with Olli Olli Switch Stance reduced to £2.02 - so I'm on it! And a big eShop sale starting tomorrow so hopefully make a decent dent in the wishlist/add to the backlog. As long as I buy more in the sale than I add to the wishlist after the Direct I'll be happy

@dmcc0 The main trouble I've had is due to the tendency for indie games to get physical releases announced way after the eshop release, which has made me very cautious about buying anything digital.

Take that OlliOlli example - I got the same email and would normally snuffle it right up (and may still do at £1.42 on the SA eshop), but what with the new OlliOlli game releasing to great acclaim I'm thinking there really should be a physical OlliOlli collection coming.

@gcunit I tend not to bother with physicals for indie stuff - especially the limited ones - as I find it hard to justify the price. I mean <£2 for OlliOlli digitally, or wait for a physical at maybe £30 - £50 (by the time you factor in shipping etc) is a no-brainer for me. If there's a sale on I could easily pick up as many as 10 games for the price of 1 physical.

I have probably around 20-30 I know I'll buy at some point and at least a hundred more that interest me.
