Why even have a backlog to begin with? Lol I've finished less than 20 games over the last 20+ years.
Agreed. I've beaten just about every game I've bought in the last 2 years, I never would have done that when I was collecting. That's not because I stopped buying games, it's because I actually started playing the ones that I did. I spent years wasting tons of time looking for what to buy next, hidden gems and keeping track of what new niche game was coming out so I could make sure to get it because of FOMO. I've gone through the collecting phase multiple times over the years and what actually broke the cycle is playing. You don't think about what you're missing out on or what piece is missing from your collection when that time is spent actually enjoying what you have.

I miss having shelves full of awesome oddball Japanese games with cool art but what good are they when the most time you spend interacting with them is rearranging them when you get another than needs to go on the shelf?

The only things really left in my backlog are JRPGS from the ps2/ps3 era. I really overestimated how much time I thought I'd have to play them. Also, thats the point in time when they really started to get weeb trash cringy. I've been meaning to sell them but these neckbeard condition whores really make me want to toss them in the trash. Its one of the reasons I like the arcade stuff so much, I can dedicate 30-45 mins and then move on.

Been there and most of those games are indeed weeb trash. Not only are those games extremely time consuming but they're also all the same. How many hours of your life do you want to waste playing as an effeminate spikey haired muppet with a giant sword running around generic villages and forests with a bunch of other cliched side characters and little girls smacking goofy little monsters so you can save the world for the umpteenth time from another generic spikey haired muppet?

The late PS1 era has some jrpg gems but in the last 20 years there's only been maybe 10 worthwhile games in the genre.

Please list those ten titles. It seems every RPG I try is a weeb cringe-fest. I always think I will play all those RPG 's when I'm retired but even know I can barely get past the first 10 minutes of these games. The last game I tried was FF15

Oh they're still full of weeb shit but either not to the extent of some others or the gameplay is good enough to put up with the cringe. FF has been straight up trash since the PS1 days.

Yakuza LAD (This isn't just a great jrpg it's one of the best in the entire series)
Nier Automata and Replicant
Persona 5 Royal
Valkyrie Chronicles Remake/4
SMT Nocturne HD
Ys VIII
Odin Sphere Remake

I have not played Ni No Kuni 2 or DQ XI but I have heard good things about them.

Thanks, Odin Sphere wasn't my thing but I'll try Like a Dragon. Have that somewhere and Y's VIII is also in my backlog

The Ys VIII is pretty much Adol on Gilligan's Island but its a damn good game.

But yeah, towards the end of the ps2 era I really started to lose interest in JRPGs, but thats also the same time they started getting really garbo. At some point I'm going to take a day and just list shit on ebay and let it ride until it sells.

With the new boot of 1941, it's a sort of complete set. I'm just not willing to pay hundreds for a game anymore. At least this game. The same eBayers asking $600+ and people aren't buying them.
