Finish your games—It’s good for you?

The guys over a buttonmashing have a post about finishing games. I’ve got a pretty good backlog of games to complete, or at least to play to a point of satisfaction, so I’m always interested when this topic comes up.  The comments on the post are pretty good to read as well.  A couple of the comments are worth noting:

That being said, time is the biggest factor. Work, kids and other tasks take priority. I’d love to have 2-3 hours a day free to play, but it usually turns out to be a lot less than that.

With two kids and a full-time job, I’ve finally come to the realization that I just can’t play every game the second it comes out, nor should I. I’m trying to not buy any games (aside from the odd Downloadable game) this summer in order to focus on playing through my backlog.
