@KitsuneNight Yeah, I don't have a huge backlog on some systems so makes sense to group them - I think I only have about 4 or 5 DS games for example so I'll lump them in with the 3DS which has quite a lot (due to the store closure). I don't think it would be worth me dropping to 2 weeks otherwise I'd probably never finish some longer games.

I've got most of the consoles at least partially hooked up - the cables are all in place, just need to plug in the actual console and dig out a controller but even that is sometimes more effort than I'm willing to put into starting a game! My (potato) PC and older consoles and handhelds are all at a desk upstairs in the bedroom and it tends to get used as a dumping ground for all the 'I'll deal with it later' stuff too so it's usually just a major pain getting anything started because I need to tidy the desk first😅 So much easier just to just grab the Switch or Xbox controller and start with a couple of button presses and - more importantly - having to go nowhere near the bedroom desk!

Looking forward to concentrating on Game Gear through July now.

@dmcc0
One solution doesn't fit all, that much is clear.
I have a humongous backlog on most systems, not helped by the fact that some of them are evergreens with no actual ending.
I've put 300 hours in Euro Truck 2 and Forza Horizon 4 each.
Neither of those has an actual endgame.

It also doesn't help that my gaming pc is of the non potato quality.
A Ryzen 5 with an RTX, it laughs at everything I throw at it.
So that adds another 2000 games ( 1200 steam 800 GOG )

Maybe ill play Xbox in July and focus on pc and that massive backlog for the rest of the year.

@KitsuneNight I went through a phase a while back of picking up stuff on Humble Bundles, Epic freebies and Steam Sales so I've still got probably 100+ in the PC backlog even though there are probably some in there that my PC won't even run!

And that was Junetendo.
Not an uminitigated disaster, but not an unqualified success either.
I didnt play as much Wii U as i had hoped.
But I did play on the machine.
It's seen quite some use.

I mostly played
Mario Kart 8
Sonic All Star Racing Transformed
Tekken Tag 2
Hyrule Warriors
The Amazing Spiderman
Splatoon
And several Lego games.

Xbox as a platform in July then.

@dmcc0 Yeah thats how I ended up with loads of games I don't even remember buying.
I got 8 pages of keys for games on humble I don't even want.
