What games am I playing?

November 14th, 2009

There are way to much games that I want to play in the limited amount of time I have for everything 🙂 Not only are there a lot of games that get my attention, I also want to make sure my lill code projects get done in a reasonable amount of time! I used to curse at games that were too short. Now I actually secretly want them to be short, so I can continue on to the next! So many great games…  much to do…. so little time….

So here’s a list of what my game interests are at this point. I’m only REALLY playing one at this time. Have been spending a lot of time coding, but I’m always thinking about the other great games that I still need to finish. Here’s the list:

Currently focused on:

  • PS3: Brütal Legend

Currently also Playing:

  • PC: The Witcher (Second run)
  • PC: Ben There, Dan That
  • PC: Heroes of Might and Magic V

Half finished and in the fridge:

  • PC: Sam and max: Season 2
  • PC: Vampyre story
  • Wii: Zelda – Twilight Princes
  • Wii: Zelda – Wind Waker

Want to play in the near future:

  • PC: Deus Ex 1 (Fourth time)
  • PC: Halflife 1 (Actually finish this time)

Recently Finished:

  • PS3: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
  • PS3: Uncharted: Among Thieves
  • PC: Braid
  • PC: World of Goo
  • PC: Plants vs Zombies

You might notice that there are no MMO’s on here. I have played World of Warcraft and Age of Conan for a while. I’ve played World of Warcraft for 2 years casually.. and again for 1 month a year later. Although it’s a great game, and I salute people at blizzard for their art direction and art style, it suddenly hit me that I was getting tired of the same thing over and over…

Age of Conan ended up more or less the same… both games are not well suited for the casual player… there are a lot of mechanisms in place to help you if you only play every once in a while, but it’s still hard to get a good group and get into the really GOOD stuff.

Then one day, I looked at all the single player games I still hadn’t finished, and thought: “Wow, these games do not cost me money when I have no time to play them :D” … so I quit MMO’s all together for now.  At first, I felt liberated.. I no longer HAD to “play because my game time that I had paid for was ticking away”…. now, I just look at the enormous pile of good single players out there, and think: “How the hell will I ever  play them all in this lifetime!” 😛  …. at least they don’t nag at my credit card when I try to ignore them ;P

Talk to ya later!
