A quarterly review of my game backlog progress for December 2020. I made great progress in completing games but increased my backlog overall.
Progress since last quarter
Since September 2020 I completed four games: Sid Meier’s Civilization V, Costume Quest 2, Surviving Mars, and Two Point Hospital.
I also added 13 new games to my backlog: Two Point Hospital, Costume Quest 2, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered, Dungeons 3, The Textorcist, The World Next Door, Seven: Enhanced Edition, Pillars of Eternity – Definitive Edition, Cities: Skylines, My Time At Portia, Dragon’s Dogma, Stranded Deep, and Solitarica.
I dropped Princess Remedy 2: In A Heap of Trouble from my backlog.
Unfinished games: 217 (⬆9)
Beaten games: 34 (⬆1)
Completed games: 94 (⬆2)
I beat and completed 16 games in 2020. Unfortunately, I didn’t do a great job on my backlog overall, adding 49 games to it. Too. Many. Free. Games.

⛔ Backlog Challenges of 2020
I had trouble motivating myself during the year because of some of the games I had initially chosen to play, so I made a revised list in June.
A related problem is my inability to purge games from my list, which I am going to try to embrace in 2021.
Still, the biggest challenge to clearing my game backlog was adding new games. With the acquisition of a PlayStation 4 at the end of last year, I found myself expanding my PS4 collection, as well as adding the free games offered by Epic Games Store.
