Overwhelmed by your video game backlog? We’ve got tips.


Picture this: It’s the end of a long day. You’re tired, looking to give your weary brain a well-deserved break with something mindless and fun in the precious 

few hours before you have to do it all over again. Do you pick up playing the game you stopped halfway through because life got crazy

that new game your friends have all been hyping up? Or any of the dozens of titles gathering virtual dust in your Steam library, bought for a steal and never once fired up?

If you’re like me, more often than not, you end up either 1) retreating to time-tested favorites, games you’ve already sunk hours and hours into

burning yourself out overthinking your options and ultimately gravitating to whatever TV show or movie or app is less overwhelming in that moment.
