I got a bunch of pc games on steam, I just can't seem to invest time when I got an Xbox.

Anyone in a similar position?

Not really. Like most PC Gamers I have a ridiculous back-catalog to work through, but I chip away at it... 5 games at a time...

I have the opposite problem. have a PS3 and PC. I spend my time playing LoL on the PC, and while I'm dead or loading or something, I play a game on the PS3 and pause it when LoL resumes :p I'm a gaming multi-tasker in the simplest terms :p

I own a ps2, a ps3 and an xbox360. My youngest wanted the ps2 and all the games and I gave the other 2 systems to my nephew. I never quite got into console gaming. Not since RE2 and RE: Nemesis.

I don't know why I bother buying 75% of the games I get.

I was so close to finish playing all my 200+ games in Steam. I had about 8 games left to play, then comes the Humble THQ Bundle, Humble Indie Bundle 7, and Steam winter sale. Now I have another 15+ games to play. I've accepted the fact that I'll never finish all the games in my steam catalogue, but I'll try.

Mine is the complete opposite, I am always on STEAM and have 50 games. I don't have a console.

glad to see Gianpotato is here, i'll never forget his reply to one of my posts on the Steam holiday sale 2-3 years ago: "you'll never play them". hahaha classic reply, will always remember that. so true.

we have lives to live and there are simply too many games, and these days even mediocre games are enjoyable. can't remember the time I played a bad game. there simply isn't enough time for gaming, tho I love it as much as I did when I was six years old, first time I started gaming!

just accept the backlog with a smile OP, at least you're gaming on your 360. this isn't a PC issue, it's a time issue, you haven't got enough time. I have a backlog of like 40-50 titles between PC, 360, PS3, and Windows Phone. all good games I enjoy.

It's the sales that get to me. I'll buy some games on Steam, play a quarter of them for no more than 30 minutes, and go back to playing my old games. Fortunately for me, I let my younger siblings use my Steam account so at least someone is getting enjoyment out of my games.

I haven't touched any of the games in the Humble Bundles I've bought (with the exception of Saints Row: The Third):
  • Humble Frozenbyte Bundle
  • Humble Indie Bundle 3
  • Humble Indie Bundle 4
  • Humble Indie Bundle V
  • Humble THQ Bundle

I have 507 games on Steam.

Though in the past few years I have become the same way, never really playing any games, or if I do it's for a bit, and I don't finish it.

Back in the day, played the crap out of a game, though back then it was easier, no achievements, no 100 quests, sidequests...it was simpler back then.
