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. Iâ€™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, Iâ€™ve finally come to the realization that I just canâ€™t play every game the second it comes out, nor should I. Iâ€™m trying to not buy any games (aside from the odd Downloadable game) this summer in order to focus on playing through my backlog.
