Last night I sat down and took a good long look at the newly updated Steam Client to get my first impressions at the new front page, catalog, and Steam Curators system. I do not who where to start with that, so I need a bit more time before writing anything about the updates.
While steam was open I did take a good hard look at my own library. It has been long established that I have complained and tried to manage my gaming backlog with my long running, “Games from my Backlog” series, but it is easier to complain about your own personal Sisyphus boulder as a big massive blob when you do not properly know what you have in your backlog.
With current disposable funds being low, while being bored with the games currently at my disposal, I took a plunge and went through my library and do you know what I found? A bunch of game titles I have absolutely no interest in playing.
Within my steam collection found a handful of indie games, point and click adventure, fighting, and “action adventure” games that I have never had any interest in ever buying or playing in the first place and I presume are only in my possession because they were acting as consolation prizes from Humble Bundles. Interesting enough I also discovered one completely dead game, an A.R.T.S/MOBA abandoned by the developers.
I also found a few Halloween/spooky themed games to play during my October stream session. But do you know what? I also found some fun but forgotten games that I have wanted to play. and last night I pushed the steam and internet connection to the limit by downloading; Dark Souls, Transistor, and Brothers a Tale of Two Son, bought from the most recent Summer Sales, but also Pac-Man Championship Edition, Reus, Risk of Rain and Dustforce and so much more. Resulting in enough games to hold me off until the winter sales and beyond .
I am curious about all the other gamers with impossibly massive backlogs on your steam account, have you found any games you have bought a while back that you have actually meant to buy and that you still want to play? If you leave your answers down below I am interested in seeing what games have been forgotten by other players.
