Welcome to my backlog cleaning marathon. I have reached 250 games, so now I have hundreds of games on my backlog and it's time to put an end to this. I'm committed! I can do this! I'm here to make a deal with myself. I will start a marathon to clean out my backlog.

I will do this in stages and batches. Every time I finish a batch, I will try to bump with a giveaway. And every time I finish a stage, I will try to bump with a big train. :P

If you want to join the marathon, reply here and I'll reserve a section for you. You don't have to do it in stages and batches like me, you can approach it however you want. And you can also change your rules or have no rules at all. :)

There is also a Steam group - BLAEO - that is tied to this project. There you can make your own threads, review the games you've played, discuss it with other runners and have fun killing your backlogs for good. If you want an invite, just apply here and we'll be glad to have you.

All runners will have a reserved section here, which can be accessed below, where you can keep a simple bulleted list / table of your progress while leaving a more detailed version in the group, or whatever you wish. You can also not post anything at all, it's completely up to you.

This thread is a continuation of this one, as I forgot to reserve a section there for the runners (I wasn't expecting anyone would join me and now look at how many runners we have ^^).

Update: The marathon has been continued here.

(Copying my stuff from the old thread for now, will make adjustments later ^^)
Doing this in batches of 5 and changing my rules to enter 2 GAs per finished game after that game is finished (I have Super Meat Boy in my first batch, come on!). And to balance things out, I'll create 1 GA per batch started + 1 GA per batch finished (crappy bundle leftovers, but it's something ^^)
Edit: The platformers are a lot harder without a gamepad, so I'm postponing them until I get one (I may still work on them in between the rest, but it'll take a lot longer with just keyboard controls). I also decided to postpone any games that require a previous part, instead of "disqualifying" them because of that. I added a table for all postponed games from earlier batches, just to keep track of what I haven't played yet :)

Ok so ... I take batches of 10 from my won games ... I started at newest, but I've won some more in the mean time, so that's rather arbitrary now. Anyway ... from those 10 I pick games with achievements and no prequels. Sometimes I will skip some more. I will have to make up a rule about that eventually.

Skipped and postponed games


Batch 1 Reason (may be a lame excuse)
Hack 'n' Slash no achievements
Contagion Singleplayer mode seems to be useless ... and I'm not in the mood for random multiplayer right now.
Blackwell Convergence Part 1 missing
Batch 2 Reason
Prompt I'd need to install an JRE to play that game? ... yeah sorry not gonna happen.
Hektor I don't get that game. Is it supposed to be scary? Is there any sense to those puzzles or are they just random? ... 83 minutes into the game I was really, really hoping it would soon be over, but ... I don't even have any idea if there's another 10 hours or it'll just end behind the next door. I quit.
Revolution Ace I might return to this later ... but this game feels reeeeally repetitive, and I don't think I'm good at it either. 3 hours was enough for now.
Batch 3 Reason
Timberman This game is stupidly simple and it's fun! ... but there's no story to finish.
Stranded in Time no achievements

My technique has been to categorize things and have different themes each week. For the sake of brevity I'll just post my completed games, the current week, and the previous week. For a complete list you can see my personal backlog thread here. Some games may also show up in another week's theme if I didn't get to it in a previous week. While I may not complete or even start all the games in the theme each week, it should at least give the the majority of my library playtime.

This is only for the games I've won on Steamgifts. I won't make any updates for the other games I play.

I like to have somewhere between 3-6 games "on rotation", often games of different genres (perhaps one platformer, one FPS, one racing game, etc) for some variety. For that reason I don't play the games in the exact order I won them.

I play a game to finish the main story, but almost always do lots (some times all) of any side quests available, but I don't aim for 100% achievements my first playthrough, unless it's not too hard to make it the first time around. I do like to get around 50% of the achievements (if possible) during the first playthrough. A completed main story playthrough puts the game as "Finished" in my list. That doesn't mean I won't return to it later though.

I have divided my games in batches of five, and I've finished some of them lately, so I'll list the recently finished ones as well as the current batches.

As soon as I only have two games left from "open" batches I'll allow myself to start playing games from a new batch, so I always can have at least three games on rotation (if I want to).

Update (2016-03-03): Since I'm abroad for a few weeks with only my laptop, I added a batch of laptop friendly games.

A game ain't done until it's been 100% achieved.

This usually gets me stuck on a few games because I can't get the last achievement. If I find it's too grindy or difficult I may back off and pick up another game (usually, I'm masochistic and power through the grind anyways). But usually, I aim for perfection.
Priority is on games that I won from Steam Gifts, as well as games that I've been gifted from friends.
I like to switch it up a lot though, sometimes I'll throw in a game that I pick up in a bundle or buy for myself.

Hi there! I'm here to remind you that you've been in BLAEO for over 4 weeks now and haven't posted your thread yet (there was a rule about that, sorry if you didn't know since you didn't come through the original thread - the table looks awesome btw). We also have a shiny new website now, where you can organize your Steam backlog and post about your progress. (Click here for a neat guide to get started.)
If you haven't shown any interest in being part of and participating in the group by at least

  • organizing your backlog on the website and/or
  • posting your backlog strategy in your website profile and/or
  • posting a thread on our Steam forum

by next week (30. March), we will have to let you go from the group. (but I guess you can still use your post here if you want)

I've got this nasty habit of being all over the place with games I'm playing, till I abandon them and might start a new one/pick up something I abandoned a few years ago... So, here it goes
(Rough version, to lazy to figure out how to do tables right now. :p)

Playing:

  • Assasins creed Black Flag
  • Tales of Zestiria - Alishia's story
  • DMC: Devil May Cry
  • Never Alone.

...But. knowing me, I probably switch to a random game inbetween.

I'll keep a summary here of game(s) at the top of my backlog with more details in the BLAEO Thread. I like to keep several games of several genres on the go at any one time allowing me to play a game I am in the mood for and allowing me to change games if I get stuck in one (I like to solve things myself rather than look them up on the internet) As a general rule I am prioritising SG wins in the order WL, Private, Group (Private, Public, Bundle). As I do only enter for games I intend to play I will also be performing a quick play of all my SG wins if I haven't done so yet and prioritising them according to how much they live up to my expectations :)

I found this web site provided a useful tool to help
Steam Completionionist
I'm using it to mark off the games I try and decide are just not for me and I have no interest in playing as well as a qucik and easy way of keeping track of the achievement completion of the games I am currently playing.

You can find all kinds of symbols here:
http://unicode-table.com/en/
Just be aware that not all characters will show up on all browsers. I've found that mobile browsers tend to not support some of the more obscure characters.
As for table formatting, SG has a good explanation at the bottom of their formatting page: http://www.steamgifts.com/about/comment-formatting
On Steam you have to mark everything up in bbcode which is a royal pain. Revilheart put a post on the subject here:

I need to do something like this soon. Some games i won't be able to complete because my computer can't play them, but most should be fine. I also have a couple early access that aren't really complete yet so I won't be able to complete their story, just what's there right now. Honestly they'll probably be released by the time I play them. I'm planning on finishing The Bureau: Xcom this weekend then moving on to Viscera Cleanup Detail: Santa's Rampage or the Long Dark, but I also may start playing on my Xbox instead.

I'm think of making my thing to at least try and play them because I'm not one to go to 100% games and I think I've completed less then 10 games in my life.

Anyway, Good luck!

You have the same amount of wins as me, so maybe cleaning SG wins would be doable for you (I already finished a little bit more than 15 games in less than 2 months), but yeah, 2802 games will take you an eternity.

That's true. If I just limited it to my wins here, I'd actually be in pretty good shape. I do put games I've won at the top of my backlog... not that it always helps.

I'm ashamed to say that I've played ~10% of my win -_-
Which is also the same percentage of the games I've played from my backlog. (hey! at least I'm a coherent person!) (σ՞ਊ ՞)σ

I've excluded all the beaten and non-steam games and I'm trying to order the remaining ones by giving them points following this table:

Points → 5 4 3 2 1
Age (# in library) 1-100 101-200 201-300 301-400 401-500
Acquisition money Giveaways/gifts tremorcoins/cards ninja-ed key
Howlongtobeat < 2h < 3h < 4h < 5h < 6h
Status wishlisted playing on hiatus

but it may need some improvement. Also, it will take a while to order all of them, I fear.

I'm writing this here to bump the thread and because it's this thread that gave me the idea.

The cores are actually my sg win =P

intact = backlog
damaged = playing
destroyed = beaten

Not going to post the full stats (such as games' name, achievements etc.) as I intend to put them in my "main" thread, so I came up with this ^_^

Currently done 87% of Akane the Kunoichi... will hopefully finish soon to start a new game in backlog.
Haven't got time to order things up in batches...

It turns out I'm quite bad at playing some genres :S

My backlog has grown rather recently (xmas time), I didn't have too much to play... but now it looks like that writting only about won games, not that I finished and bought by myself:

  1. Sid Meier's Civilization V --> 169 hours (51% completed in achievements)
  2. Sid Meier's Civilization V: Complete Edition --> 169 hours (51%) STILL PLAYING...
  3. Nation Red (just started - 30%)
  4. Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth1 (just started, 3 achievements done)
  5. Valkyria Chronicles™ (43 hours - 35% Still playing)
  6. Wolfenstein: The New Order (100%)
  7. The Walking Dead (100%)
  8. The Walking Dead: Season 2 (100%)
  9. Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride (100%)
  10. Metal Slug 3 (60% - still playing, but they screw up achievements - no fun doing them)
  11. The chronicles of Emerland. Solitaire. (100%)
  12. Alan Wake Collector's Edition (100%)
  13. Dead Rising® 2 (90% - almost done, waiting on people to gather to finish TIR & co-op if someone interested - add me)
  14. Wolfenstein: The Old Blood (100%)
  15. Terraria (14hours - 14% - seems like not my type of game)
  16. La-Mulana (100%)
  17. Dead Effect (100%)

  18. Unhack - won and finished (no achievements though...)

I'm planning on finishing all won games with 100% :)

You can set up your own rules. I try to make a giveaway every time I finish a batch, with each batch containing 5 games. You don't need to make giveaways at all if you don't want to, the main goal is to simply work on your backlog - focusing on SG wins.

Also added the GA to the OP, thanks. Interestingly, your first entrant has entered a private giveaway of mine before, which turned out to have been leaked. You might wanna share the giveaway somewhere else if you don't get 5 entries, I'm not sure how many people are still checking this thread. :P

I've started documenting my backlog adventure too but included a special rule to even out a win. If I do/did a GA or game turned f2p for a previously won game, it goes to the pile of games I consider I bought for myself and goes at the back of the line. Still have about 4/5ths of my wins to play even after that. :<

That's an interesting way to approach it. Let me know if you want to join. :)

hey, glad you're doing this! those games deserve to be played :D
now, in my case I have 2 "problems" :

  • lack of time
  • too many games to actually finish! any time soon-ish

yeah shame on me, but hey, life doesn't stop just cause someone wants to play, right? XD

I'll keep this in the back of my mind tho, say goal!

ps. no hidden giveaway, please don't waste your time..

Thanks! Why don't you start with shorter games? Checking our group might also give you some extra motivation. :P

oh I don't think it's about motivation :P if I have to pick between sleep or play, most likely game gonna lose :P unless some odd chance
but yeah, shorter games do sound more reachable. I'll check that group later tho. Thanks resident evil bloody heart (?)

Hey! I recently started to do the same thing (with Papers, Please and Witcher) and now today I saw this thread :)
Since I built a new pc and still didn't buy graphics card (using cpu integrated graphics) it is a perfect time for me to clean backlogs starting with old and indie games ^^

Hi there! I'm here to remind you that you've been in BLAEO for over 4 weeks now and haven't posted your thread yet (there was a rule about that, sorry if you didn't know since you didn't come through the original thread). We also have a shiny new website now, where you can organize your Steam backlog and post about your progress. (Click here for a neat guide to get started.)
If you haven't shown any interest in being part of and participating in the group by at least

  • organizing your backlog on the website and/or
  • posting your backlog strategy in your website profile and/or
  • posting a thread on our Steam forum

by next week (30. March), we will have to let you go from the group.

Aha! Thanks for reminding! I will post a shiny table when I get home. Should I post in Steam group or here?
Edit: Loved the drag/drop interface. If you guys need any developer help I may be interested :)
Edit2: I think there should be another category for mostly online perpetual games like CS:GO, Dota2, DST etc.
Edit3: I just read getting started :) But can't drag/drop in custom lists :/ Actually because they are not "progress"
