Never any time to game

Due to certain financial issues swirling around mi casa at this time of the year, I have been liquidating a large portion of my "last-gen" game library. At first, like in some kind of fevered madness, I planned to get rid of all of my games, systems, memorabilia, etc... and give up games until I had the money to start again. Thankfully, my wife isn't a heartless wench and after one short trip to eBay where she saw 5 year old games going for $50+ she told me to "just keep your games". I solidified my criteria for sale to those games I had played and was content to get rid of at a cheap price, with no plans to repurchase again. I'm a couple hundred dollars closer to economic stability, but now I'm questioning my collection and my complete lack of time to complete any game fully. Most recently, I have played through Mirror's Edge and made serious (but severely hampered) progress through Dead Space, Gears of War 2, Tomb Raider Legend (WTF? I know) Pixel Junk: Eden and too many others to recount here. I typically don't get more than 30 minutes to a couple of hours to play games at night, so with this complete lack of personal time I think it's a lost cause; buying new games only to have a stack of barely played titles staring me in the face for months to come.
