If I had to guess, I’d say the average PC gamer has anywhere between thirty and three hundred games in his or her library. It’s not a matter of greed, really… it’s just that Steam sales are so good it’s impossible to play through even budget-priced titles faster than you can buy them.
Personally, I’ve accumulated only 85 or so titles… a little under a hundred if you count all the add-ons, DLC packs, and mods. I always told myself I’d play them, but every time I jumped into my library, it was just easier to play something comfortable and familiar.
Well, no more! I’ve decided that I’m going to play every game in my Steam library – one week at a time until I’ve caught up. Given there’s only 52 weeks in a year and there’s a pretty good likelihood I’ll buy more games at some point in the future, I may never reach the end of the rainbow. But hey, you gotta hold out hope for something, right?
Last week, I asked my fans to vote on what title would be my inaugural foray into this insane Steam Backlog Adventure. And, when the votes were counted, Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition won by a wide margin. I’d read some Dark Souls tips a long time ago, but I still wasn’t nearly prepared for what awaited me.
And, in case you missed the original Steam Backlog Adventure explanation, here you go:
Now, I’m ready to take on whatever crazy title my viewers want to pick out for next week…
So what will it be?
