My Video Game Backlog: 2012

Backlog, as defined by Wikipedia (a super legitimate source) is “an accumulation over time of work waiting to be done or orders to be fulfilled.” While I would hardly call video games a laborious activity, a backlog of them can be something that hangs over your head (in a good way) when you’ve got no time to play or have neglected them for a variety of reasons. For many people, summer is the time to finally take the bag off…
