No Time for Video Games

   0


See that photograph? Those are 6 games that I haven't even touched yet. They sit on my bookshelf and gather dust, because I simply can't give these games the time they deserve.

To me, video games can be a huge commitment. I enjoy losing myself in another world for a few hours at a time. I hate to begin a game, and then stop playing it for an extended period of time. It takes away from the experience, somewhat.

With my time being eaten up by school, class, and some semblance of a social life, there are some games that I just haven't been able to pick up, for fear that I won't have time for them later. So right now, my gaming is limited to quick pick-up-and-play titles like Smash Bros, Mario Party, etc.

Of the six titles pictured, the ones that I really think deserve an extended commitment are Okami and RE4. But until things lighten up, it looks like they'll be sitting on my shelf for some time to come.

What do you guys think? Do you find yourself putting off playing a game that you feel deserves quality time? Or do you just play any game whenever it's convenient?
