Game collecting thoughts

I buy too many games. Now granted, I buy them very cheaply, but I still don’t have nearly enough time to play through them all. At best I get to try them here and there and play through a select few. That’s why I’m playing through Batman Arkham Asylum now.

Since the Catching Up post I’ve bought a handful of more PS2 games. I work at GameStop and we have this “buy 5 PS2 games for 20 bucks” deal that I’ve used a bunch of times. And I also found Shadow of the Colossus at an independent used games store. Now I just need to find Ico. And maybe the Subsistence version of Metal Gear Solid 3. Not that I will play them all, but… you know. Actually, fuck it, collecting games is fun too. The excitement of going through shelves of games just to find that special one that you never thought of. Gitaroo Man was one that I found the other week. I’d heard about it and checked out a few video reviews on my phone right there in the store and it was highly regarded, so I got it as one of the five-for-20 that time.

I thought about getting LA Noire, but then I thought that since I probably won’t have the patience to play through that kind of game, I might as well watch a “let’s play” of it. So I did and I found out that it was pretty repetitive. I got the experience without having to pay for it and I didn’t have to endure the repetition. I could strike the game from my must-buy list. That list kind of looks like this right now:

Halo Anniversary
Batman Arkham City
Assassin’s Creed Revelations
Max Payne 3
The Witcher 2
Fez
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare
Ico (PS2)

That’s it right now. And since I already have a goddamn mountain of games I intend to find these gems on the cheap.

Here are some pictures of my collection right now.

Yeah, I should stop now…
