Anyone else not wanna play anything cause they're overwhelmed with games?

I have wayyyy too many games that I need to play, even before the sale. Now I have so many that sometimes I don't even feel like playing :/

Me too. I have so many games because of the sale it's too overwhelming to try and start to go threw them. I don't even have time to play them so it's futile.

I'm waiting for Half-Life 3.

Really though I bought too many indie bundles, and I hate going through my games's list and trying to find something to play.

I've been sorting and re-sorting my games list to stop myself from buying more things and realizing that through the indie bundles, I've got a crapload of titles that I've never played and forgot I even had.

I ended up this way too during last year's summer sale. What I did is pick one game at random from each genre and added it to the Favourites category, then mostly just played those games, swapping them out as I finished each one.

Your mileage may vary however, just throwing suggestions out there.

I'm on a buying diet this time around for the very reason I have binged on previous sales.

I'm holding back for the end of year bonanza while I work through a backlog. However, if I look at the whole library I've collected, it is intimidating.

So I tend to avoid that and just pick a few according to different moods and then aim to finish those before moving onto the next. It's actually been working really well and I'm making inroads.

I totally know what you're saying. I hate tutorials and learning the controls of a new game... so rather than play a new game, alot of times I"ll open up League of Legends, because I already know how to play that game. It's very depressing, especially since I only play vs. AI on LoL because I don't like the atmosphere of the PvP. ;P

I'm really hoping that once I get back from vacation that I'm on currently and get a chance to settle back into a routine that I'll be able to concentrate on finishing some of my vast... VAST collection of games. It will also help when my brother in law goes back to school so he's not bothering me to play games with him a ton. ;P Which results in me playing a lot of LoL vs. AI again.

That's how I feel. I have 434 games and I haven't even touched about 300 of them. I have so much to play I can't even decide what to play first and I usually just end up not playing anything.

Start with the games with the shortest campaigns and time to complete, like Indie's or on-rails AAA's. It will help build your determination once you start knocking them down.
