Are you keeping your gaming resolutions for 2020? Many of us made the decision to play through more of the games waiting in our backlogs this year, because we all want to get rid of that feeling of discomfort experienced when realising just how many untouched titles we own.
But what if it didn’t need to be this way: what if our libraries were something to be celebrated rather than a source of shame? A mountain of games surely isn’t a cause for guilt; it’s a sign of just how much you enjoy your hobby, and that you have something suitable for every gaming mood. That’s why #LoveYourBacklog Week is kicking off once again this year and encouraging everyone in the community to show their backlog a little bit of love during this week of Valentine’s Day romance.
If you’re up for feeling proud about your pile of video games, read on to find out how you can get involved.
Backlogged and proud of it
Show your backlog pride by selecting one of the following badges to be displayed on your blog throughout this week. If you’re open to others viewing your games list and possibly connecting with you, feel free to add a link to your library to the image so we can check out your collection.
Do what bloggers do best
Declare your love for the backlog by writing a post about your game collection before Sunday, 16 February 2020. Nominate unplayed or unfinished titles from your library for the first four of the following categories, and let us know about someone who has great taste in video games too:
Participate in #MaybeinMarch
The backlog appreciation isn’t over at the end of this week as there’s more planned for next month. You know that game nominated for the ‘most time on the backlog’ category above – well, how about attempting to complete it during March and then telling the community all about the experience? This isn’t about getting a title off your list however, but more about celebrating all of the awesome releases which are part of it. Keep an eye open for more details coming very soon.
Thank you to everyone who’d like to get involved in 2020’s #LoveYourBacklog Week! Now go out there and be proud of your backlog – we’re looking forward to hearing all about your game collections.
