    It's not just about the money it's mainly the time to play these games. Sensible to wait till you have finished a few b4 starting a new one

    All the money I'm saving by not buying games is going into my secret bank account that Mrs Hermit doesn't know about, and will be used for the purchase of the Xbox 720 or whatever they decide to call it. It may well end up being my first ever release day console.
    I started doing this last year, problem is I've now got a nice amount sitting in my account and other things are starting to tempt me. Specifically, a Nexus 7. My resolve is weakening. The 720 is still ages away right?

    I think the very earliest for the 720 will be sept/ oct this year. I'd be amazed if it wasn't released this year

    Ok first plea for support - as a massive Advance Wars fan...

    Please STOP me buying Skull of the Shoguns unless I have first finished one of the following XBLA backlog games (the first two I have not even started) :

    1) Clash of hero's
    2) Defense Grid DLC : You monster
    3) Panzer tank something or other - can't even remember the bloody name! General? something!

    Man I want to buy it. Aargh!

    Everybody should just calm down a little bit and have a nice cup of tea.

    If you buy Skulls, you'll be disappointing strangers on the internet.

    STRANGERS. On the INTERNET.

    You don't want to do that

    My 3 out, 1 in plan for my backlog is going well so far (1 month in ,big deal!).

    Finished Mark Of The Ninja and Anarchy Reigns in the last two weeks, so will be trading the latter in along with Dragon's Dogma (seeing as the DLC included version is out in a few months for the same price as the trade in value) to get DmC.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    My plan to stop playing Fifa 13 every night went into effect last night. I unplugged my Xbox, and put the cable away :redface:

    PS3 is set up and Demon's Souls is inserted.

    I was actually quite far into Demon's Souls, but then my PS3 broke. I only just got it fixed.

    I have Dark Souls unopened as well :eek:

    Ahem

    I had to import this from social media. Well, I didn't *have* to, but I felt it was my social responsibility.

    That's it now though. No more games. Honest! #tricky

    After he bought SSX on Games on Demand for £8.99.

    Not that I can talk, I bought it too, and I've been woefully absent from this thread for a year, having rebuilt a distinctly shameful backlog of stuff after doing so very well the year before.

    I'm determined to only buy GTAV and *maybe* Bioshock: Infinite for the rest of 2013. I've got plenty of scope for partially funding these with some of the backlog titles, if I can get them played and done.

    Rumbled! I was, as everyone knows, only talking about story led games, not extreme sports that you can dip in and out of.

    Honest.

    I was doing okay-hadn't bought a game since Persona 4 Golden back in November (which I did finish!) but it's all gone a bit pear shaped in the last week. Oh dear.

    PSN ID: finn1
    3DS: 3497-0005-6756

    So far this year, then, I've finished Uncharted GA, done with Most Wanted, about an hour from finishing the Vita Mutant Blobs game.... I'm now trading a stack of older stuff in to Amazon with the express purpose of picking up Persona and a PSN card for those odd little goodies that turn up on the PSN store. A productive first month of 2013 and not a penny spent so far :-)

    Jan: Resistance 3 bought using Playpoints
    Risen 2 bought using a Play.com voucher

    Expenditure £nil :)

    I do so like the look of The White Witch this month...I have £80 in credit with Play (since Nov 2012), but that is already spoken for.

    "Duffman is thrusting in the direction of the problem! Oh, yeah!"

    Yes mate - I'll need to finish at least some of the single player first though but will ping you when I get there :)

    Have picked up Odyssey 3011 from Xbox indie games. Can't resist the Elite feel.

    2013 game spend thus far : 240 msp

    Indie games don't count, surely? That's like supporting the grass roots of the entire industry. Akin to a sort of gaming form of charity. It should probably be deducted from your spending total, in fact!

    I say this because I bought Odyssey 3011, too.

    I'm putting a sort of ban on myself buying games, as I have over 200 of them on steam alone, and really should play them first :D

    Well I haven't bought a game since the end of November and I've managed to finish 3 in that time. If I continue at a rate of 1.5 games a month, I will clear my backlog of 360 games by early 2014!

    Then after that, if I continue through my pre-existing backlog of Mega Drive, SNES, N64, DC, PS1 PS2, Wii and steam bought games, I may optimistically be finished around the year 2040!

    Sometimes I reckon my backlog is actually a subconsious horde in case I ever find myself being a 17 year-old, single, jobless bum with nothing but time and no money for games again.

    God, I wish.

    I'm feeling better about my backlog now. If the rumours are true about high prices and 2nd hand lockouts next gen then it looks like I wont be buying any new console for a long time. So at least I'll have plenty to tide me over while I wait for sensible pricing to return if it ever does...or I'll just stick with steam and watch the backlog grow anyway...

    This thread's as good as any....

    I, Flying_Pig, of that place where I live; do commit to not purchasing a Next Generation console until at least 12 months after release.
    I will not be tempted by a shiny new box, the promise of 'new gaming experiences' or the promise of future releases.
    I feel better now.

    Speaking of flying couldn't resist getting Hawx on the Xbox ultimate Game sale thingy. My first game on demand.

    Gah.

    I bought grid in that sale but it doesn't count as I had 500 msp left over from surveys/points back/random left over points. It's also not added to my backlog as I've already played the single player.

    Still doing well, over a couple of games are starting to tempt me. When the next steam sale begins i will probably be ready to buy again
