One of the most important tips to beat your game backlog is to make a list of all of the games on your game backlog. Knowing what is in your backlog is important to keep you motivated and to keep you from making bad decisions, like buying two copies of the same game.
During this process, you may want to get rid of games that you know you will never finish. You will also want to track your progress for each of these games.

When you’re finally ready to play a game you’re going to want to spend as much of that time playing as possible. And you’re going to want to make it count. Don’t waste your game time.
- Don’t spend time doing side quests if your goal is to complete the main story. Stay on task and save the DLC for later.
- Don’t waste time trying every possible combination if you’re stuck. Embrace assistance by reading an FAQ or watching a walkthrough video.
- Do play on easy difficulty, if you’re not in it for the challenge. You’ll get through the game faster and still be able to enjoy it.
- Don’t get distracted and don’t multitask. You’ll get less done and gain less enjoyment from it.
- Do prepare for future sessions by taking notes.
I will continue playing BloodRayne and Crazy Taxi and start Geneforge.

I beat the Arunmor storyline in Uplink: Hacker Elite in June 2018.
Uplink is strategy simulation game where the player is an Uplink Agent who makes a living by performing computer hacking jobs for major corporations. Tasks involve hacking into rival computer systems, stealing research data, sabotaging other companies, laundering money, erasing evidence, or framing innocent people.
Use the money you earn to upgrade your computer systems, buy new software and tools. As your experience level increases more dangerous and profitable missions become available.

Since my last post I have completed the main story of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, so I will continue playing Uplink this month and start playing BloodRayne and Crazy Taxi.
My goal for Uplink is to reach the highest hacker ranking. I missed the storyline quests, so I might do another playthrough afterwards. Once I finish Uplink, I will move on to Geneforge .
I am close to beating Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, just one more level.
I am also making progress in Uplink. I am the second highest ranked hacker and the top ranked that is still active. I missed the story line quests, so I am trying to get the highest hacker grade.
I will finish Disgaea: Hour of Darkness and start playing Uplink this month.
I completed Project Eden in April 2018. I also completed one Civilization V achievement and episode 13 of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness.
