The Five Stages of Backlog Management (The Cherup-Sines Model­™)

Stage 1: Recognition

  • How many games is too many?
  • Inventory your games

Stage 2: Bargaining

  • Prioritize those you want to really, really play
  • Learn to ignore new releases for a few weeks or to play multiple games

Stage 3: Panic

  • Develop crippling decision anxiety about games and just stop playing altogether

Stage 4: Mitigation

  • Recognize you will probably not play everything you buy
  • Consider hiding games you don’t want to play
    • GOG and Steam Filters
    • Console Library Filters

Stage 5: Acceptance

  • Play whatever you feel like whenever you feel like it
    • Or be Jared and just find more and more obscure games to find and play… eventually. (Shinobi III)
    • Or just wait for the new God of War.

I work hard, play hard, and browse Wikipedia the hardest. I'm always reading about games. I have a modest collection and strive to promote that videogames are for every single person.
