Too many games; not enough time.
Recently I've been dealing with a problem. I'm sure some of you suffer from it too. No, it's not short-sightedness or writer's cramp. Simply put; I've got too many games.
My inbox of games to play far exceeds the time I have available to play them. It's a problem that doesn't show any sign of going away. I picked up Resident Evil 5 over the weekend (a game I borrowed from a friend and started but never finished), but now I'm wondering if and when I'll get to play it through to the end.
The problem isn't limited to just one console either. I've got Mac games, stuff on my iPhone, and even a couple of PS3 games that have yet to make it out of the wrappers.
I find myself prioritising which games to play; often chipping away at two or three campaigns at the same time. I'm currently working at Battlefield 3, Uncharted, a replay of the Marine campaign of AvP, Cut the Rope (on the iPhone), Civilization IV and GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. Phew. And that's not counting the multiplayer gaming I do, which in truth takes up more of my time than playing solo does.
The thing is I'm not complaining. It's a happy dilemma to be in. I love gaming, I love the different stories that unfold in front of my eyes and I revel in exploring strange new worlds. The only trouble is that in three weeks The Old Republic is coming out, and I fear that anything I've yet to finish before then might just remain uncompleted for some time to come.
