Thanks to Humble Bundle and Steam sales, I’m pretty overloaded with games right now. A game really has to grab my attention right away to get me to play it through or I’m on trying the next one as I just have way more games than time.
Anyway, I’m currently playing Far Cry 3 “>Far Cry 3 and think I will beat that one as it’s a lot of fun (with some flaws I can go into at another time). Plus, I finally got a gaming mouse so I’m not using the touchpad on my laptop like a chump. Also, on my DS (well, technically, my 3DS), I’m playing The World Ends With You which is supposed to be really good as is just starting to grab me.
Games I’ve started and plan to get back to:
* Grand Theft Auto IV – I know it’s a good game, it just annoyed me for some reason but I’ll play it through eventually.
* Deus Ex: Human Revolution – It will be a much more fun game when I convince myself not to be a tedious completionist and hack every single door I see. Also, the story was just starting to get interesting when I put it down for Far Cry. Oh, but the character models in it really annoy me for some reason; they’re just so awkward and not real looking (large bodies, tiny heads) and make it seem like a ten year old game sometimes. A huge flaw for a dialogue heavy game where I’m not just gunning down these people.
* Assassin’s Creed II – I never played an Assassin’s Creed game and this is the highest reviewed of them (and was $5 on Steam). I love the free run where you easily climb up buildings and definitely want to get back to it.
* Dark Souls – At times extremely compelling with its difficulty and at other times I’m just like, “What am I doing here?”
Oh, and I keep telling myself one of these days I’m going to go back to Skyrim and finally beat the main quest in an Elder Scrolls game, but I last played it like a year ago (and put 93 hours in it).
And I still have countless games sitting in my Steam account that I haven’t even started. Plus someone was kind enough to gift me DOTA 2 which I know nothing about other than it’s really popular.
Man, I can’t wait until I one day retire and can play video games all day again. With this economy, that’s probably like forty years from now. Until then, I’ll try to get my kids really into video games so I can multiplayer with them and that be family time.
