Default Progressing through iOS Games

Hi everyone,

I am pretty confident when I say that I am not the only one who suffers from impulse buying on the App Store. When I see a game that gets a great review, I instantly wanna go get it (and oftentimes do). What ends up happening is that I have an overwhelming amount of good games on my phone and I never come close to finishing them.

How do you guys do it? I've thought about deleting all but one game and working through it till I finish it.

I know it's super random but I was just wondering what you all do?

Well, I used to be like that too, but there just haven't been good releases in the past months that lasted more than 1 or 2 weeks on my iPhone unlike it used to be, so my backtrack list has been cleaned already, and now I am playing games as they come

Ideally i should just put one game on my device at one time but i'm an 'app hoarder' ! I've got about 500 apps on my phone (64 gig) and so many favourites. One day i might want a shoot em up, another day a retro game etc etc.

I think it must come from my days in the 80's with a ZX Spectrum, waiting for 4 minutes for a game to load, even if the game wasnt great i had to play it as i'd just waited 4-5 minutes for it to load !

Now i can load games up instantly on my phone, a huge library of them, love it !

Reviews as they did in the 80's are a guide to a game, i dont instantly buy a 5/5 star game as tastes are different, i dont like runner games, flappy games, tilt games etc but i always read the reviews as sometimes you uncover a gem you might not have bought due to the screenshots or even the name.

Havent bought as many as i normally do the last few months (in my heyday i was buying 5 games a week at least) but theres still been some good uns filling up my spare space

I think I played about 1/20 of the games I have. It's sad I know but I feel a different joy when I buy apps.
