God. Dammit.

167 games.

I am the worst.

How did this happen? I blame a combination of Steam sales, indie bundles, "collecting", and lack of self-control. It's gotten to the point where I feel bad buying new games because I have the image of this mountain of unfinished games perpetually in the back of my head.

So how do I tackle this? One at a time, my friends, one at a time. First up: Bayonetta on the Xbox 360. I am a little over one-quarter of the way through this right now, and I am actually enjoying it. It's Japanese as fuck. I'll probably write a more detailed post when I finish it.

Part of my motivation for actually tackling this (aside from the fact that I've been saying I would do it forever, as the stack just grew ever larger) is that I need to show myself that I can accomplish something. Following through on shit is not my strong point. It's a personal failing that I am sick of, and wish to improve upon. Sure, finishing a pile of games isn't exactly the noblest of endeavors, but I consider this to be a first step in a long process of self-improvement.

I welcome suggestions on where to go once I finish up Bayonetta. I have started a couple of other games, namely Borderlands and Torchlight, so I may head there afterwards, or perhaps I can be swayed by a particularly convincing argument for something else.

Let's see what happens.
