Being thankful isn’t something I do enough of. I know it’s cliché, but I need to strive at being more aware of the blessings I enjoy each and every day.
This is no different when it comes to video games, and I want take time out with this blog to review what an amazing 4-5 months it’s been in my gaming world.
Due to the generosity of family at Christmas and our tax return, I’ve been able to advance more in my game library is these past few months than I have in quite a while:
Jade Empire: Limited Edition
Kingdom Under Fire: The Crusaders
Project Gotham Racing 2
Sid Meier’s Pirates!
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow
Astro Boy: Omega Factor (GBA)
Diner Dash: Sizzle and Serve
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Mario Kart DS
Mario Party DS
New Super Mario Brothers
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords
Risk / Battleship / Clue (GBA)
Star Fox Command
Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2 (GBA)
Uno / Skipbo / Uno Freefall
Nintendo DS Lite (2)
Fanatec Speedster 3 Forceshock Xbox Racing Wheel
I look at this list with a sense of awe and intimidation, both excited about the purchases but wondering how I’m going to find time for all of them.
That’s the problem with my gaming hobby – I’m acquiring games faster than I can play through them.
I’m not the first person to have this problem, nor will I be the last – and as far as problems go, I think having an abundance of games is probably the best kind to have.
