I don't even play multiplayer, but my backlog is ridiculous. It doesn't help that I can't stop playing The Witcher and Dungeon Siege 2. I haven't even played Skyrim but for a dozen hours or so!

My problem is that I'll start several games at once and finish none of them due to playing MP stuff. I need to stop playing multiplayer titles for a few weeks so I can get caught up, my backloggery account is out of control.

Same here. I still play gobs of GunGame in DoD Source. Also started trying to pick off some of the xbox 360 backlog I have going on as well.

Same here but only CS:S GG DM. Twitchest of the twitch and 5-10min maps. Meanwhile the backlog grows.

Damn, Skyrim has got legs! Love it! It would be #1 if there was no 2K fatally sale going on.

Sometimes I go to the Account History page on Steam just to find out what I've forgotten that I bought.

Found out that I bought Bulletstorm. Maybe I should try that out...
Should give it a try. Fun game, and the dialog is pretty good, in an over-the-top action movie sort of way

Oh dear, reading this makes me want to make a shameful confession. My name is MisterBenn, and my yet to play list contains zero games!!! I play entirely too many games but I haven't got that kind of giant backlog like you lot. Is that all down to Steam sales? You guys certainly do seem to foam at the mouth when it's the season!

What I do have, however, is a list of "games that I played some of and then parked to go back to". Do those count? If so I have SpaceChem, Orcs Must Die and Kerbal Space Program waiting to be played to exhaustion.
I have that too. I have a big list of games I've tried and want to finish but something else caught my attention. But I have ones I have never even installed.

Some are from steam sales, yeah.

Oh and Mashiki, FWIW I thought Civ 5 was a disappointment. It improved on Civ 4 in terms of accessibility, speed and aesthetics, but in the streamlining they threw out some of the richness and flavour of the prequels. Where previously the game mechanics were more organic and based on the real world, those in Civ 5 seemed more arbitrary and self-fulfilling, which gave the game more of a board game feel than a world simulator. It's a case of taste of course but the game has been controversial for this so even at a low price I would make sure I've done some research. By coincidence I admitted to myself that I won't go back to Civ 5 and I started a new game with Civ 4...

Hmm. Civ5 GOTY edition for $12.

I don't even really like Civ games, but I feel compelled to purchase it. Damn you Steam! I have like 6 games I've never even touched.

Hehehe. My "yet to play" list currently has 84 games in it.

We better not get Prez in here. He's going to make all of us look really normal by comparison...

Actually he is pretty good at at least trying the games he buys. hehehehe

I could probably play & beat a game in the time it would take me to figure out which of my games I hadn't tried yet

Good price, but they haven't released the serious DLC yet... They'll probably have a "Complete" version down the line.
