Being a completionist is not a matter of choice, it’s a curse one is born with! I have the urge to 100% everything I start playing.

So far I only abandoned one game for its insane difficulty: VVVVVV (but do not rejoice, I still may come back to you one day!). I did abandon a few non-achievement games that felt too crappy or boring to bother with, though I dutifully finish crappy games if they have achievements (sigh).

I don’t follow any special backlog strategy, just trying to have fun and divide my time evenly between games I bought myself and games I was lucky to win.
