My Game Backlog is Ridiculously Long

I should never be allowed to enter a Gamestop with money. Despite an increasing college workload, working two jobs, a gym membership, and having a life in general, I've managed to complete a ton of games this year, and yet my backlog steadily grows by the month. A major reason for that is that I just can't pass up a good deal. If a game on my "To Get" list is on sale, there's a great chance I'm walking out of the store with it and I'm buying games faster than I can complete them. Hell, between this past Black Friday and Cyber Monday alone, I must have purchased roughly 15 games AT LEAST. Do I have a problem? Not at all.

Here is the complete list of games that I own but have yet to start playing:

A Boy and His Blob (Wii)

Asura's Wrath

Blue Dragon

Condemned 2: Bloodshot

Condemned: Criminal Origins


De Blob 2

Deux Ex: Human Revolution

El Shaddai: Ascension of the Metatron

Heavy Rain

Infamous: Festival of Blood

Jak & Daxter Collection

L.A. Noire

Mafia II

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

Metroid Prime 3: Corruption



Quantum Conundrum


Red Faction: Guerrilla

Shadows of the Damned


Skies of Arcadia: Legends

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings Enhanced Edition

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron

Xenosaga Episodes I & II

Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbados' Treasure

That list doesn't include my roommate's copy of Assassin's Creed III that's been staring into my soul for weeks now, as well as copies of XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Catherine lent to me by a friend. I should also be receiving Call of Duty: Black Ops II in the near future, once another friend has his fill with it. What I really need is to be locked in Dragon Ball Z's hyperbolic time chamber to give me a year to get through all these games while only a single day passes in the real world. That would solve everything.

Anyone else buried under a crazy backlog? I'm hoping for a "yes", so that I don't feel quite as terrible.
