Time to Play the Backlog?
Does anyone ever look at the LIBRARY tab of their Steam client and wonder what is all hiding under it? If it is anything like mine it is a long list of games you've bought and never played (or barely played). I've been contemplating working through this backlog.
It is actually a bit crazy when I look and see the size is 150+! Some of this is sprawl from games I've tried over time, but the majority are games I've bought and quite a few that haven't gotten much attention (some not at all!).
A quick shuffle through the list and by my count I have not played approximately 40 of the titles! That is 25% of games I've bought that I've never played. There is a much longer list of games that have been installed and played but not for any length of time.
So I am considering reviewing this backlog with a few goals in mind:
- Create a blog post for each game (which may include its expansions)
- If I played the game already it will just be about memories from the game
- If I haven't played the game or didn't play it enough to get a sense for it then I will play the game before posting. Goal will be at least 1 hour.
- Create some videos along the way
This is also cheat mode for next week when I will be away from posting. I will queue up a few posts from the backlog.
Do you play your Steam backlog? If so; leave a comment!
