And I just can’t hide it…. Or not.
I’m not sure how I’m feeling lately. I finally found some fun in some games again. Got a PS4, which I wanted, and actually feel a bit better again IRL aswell. And yet something feels wrong. Seems like things are running a bit too smoothly, if you get what I mean.
Anyway today’s post is one I think many gamers can relate to: Too many games and too little time.
Exactly: None. I have so many games. Too many to play actually. There’s a huge pile of PS2 games that are barely touched sitting under my bed. I have Pokémon X and Kingdom Hearts 3D staring at me for the 3DS and there’s quite a list of games on my PC that I barely touched aswell. It’s quite logical. Throughout the year many shiny games come out. Not all of them are my cup of tea, thankfully, but enough are able to take my interest. Over the last year I bought AC 3 & 4, Tomb Raider, Rayman Legends, Ducktales Remastered, The Sims 3, Final Fantasy: A Realm Reborn, Civ 5 xpac and Warcraft III (yeah I know I’m a bit late with that last one, don’t judge). And these are only the PC games. I got a PS4 with Knack, I bought Pokémon X, Animal Crossing and Kingdom Hearts 3D for the 3DS and I really don’t want to start mentioning all the second hand games I bought for the PS2.
It’s too many. Way too many. Especially considering I also still play WoW and added FFXIV to my MMO’s. I just can’t keep up. That’s why I can’t get excited for new games coming up. The Elder Scrolls Online? Meh. Wildstar? Not interested. All the games that are planned for the PS4? Only interested in FF15 and Kingdom Hearts 3.
Hell the only game I would consider buying the coming months would be FF13: Lightning Returns, but it’s not coming out for the PS4 so I can’t even play it even if I would get it.
I used to play the shit out of Donkey Kong on my old Gameboy. They brought it back to the 3DS, shiny? Certainly. Will I buy it? No. Right now I feel like I’m wasting my money on games. I feel bad for not playing the games I already bought and I certainly don’t want to buy anything I would instantly regret.
I wish I had the discipline to just make a gaming “schedule” and finally start playing all those games I bought. But I’m a scatterbrain and get distracted easily and default to my old habit: play WoW almost non stop. And I feel so bad about it. I have all these great games just dusting away… *sighs* Atleast I know I’m not the only one with these issues, but it just sucks. Maybe in this case it helps I’m not interested in any of the new games coming out, maybe it will boot my ass to start playing the games I already have more so I can actually finish them and then buy new games.
Too many games… TOO LITTLE TIME!
