TWT40 – Can’t Play Em All!

My first paying job was a flier route. I remember calculating the amount of money I was going to make per month, and translating it directly into how many video games I was going to be able to purchase (which, in the over-priced N64 days, was not that many, but I digress). There was a point in my life where I had the notion that if I only had enough money, I could just play everything.

Of course now that I have money, I have no TIME, and when I do have time, I have to choose something. It’s the sprawling RPGs I have to pick the most carefully. After Zelda, Elder Scrolls, and the occasional FF, there ain’t room for much else.

It used to be I would read gaming reviews looking for what would give me the most content for my buck… these days I look for “amazing gameplay… too bad the campaign is so short”.

    You have an insane work life (like most webcomickers, it seems). Single-player titles are increasingly rare, but you can dedicate a couple of hours here and there to some pretty good RPGs and JRPGs, and have a pretty good time with them (that’s what I do on the nights of my days off from work).

    Reducing your game time sucks, but life happens sometimes.

      It’s true, you can do that. But then you’re potentially playing the game for MONTHS, which can affect the immersion. Tough either way :).

    Sounds a lot like trying to make excuses. I never did finish Diablo 3 now I think about it; it could not keep my interest.

      Excuses are the BEST, man!

    Amen. I’d love to play Bioshock, but I’ve got shit to do.

    • coliver

      Pffft, Bioshock Infinite… more like Bioshock a-couple-hours-a-week, am I right?

    This is so true. Plus your old guy with glasses impersonation is tha bomb. :)

      Thanks, I worked hard on that ;).
