I’m fully expecting that quite a few people will read this and think or respond with something along the lines of, “Yeah, there are a lot of games out there, but most of them are absolute crap.” And those people might be right, in all honesty. But as a major-fan-nerd-dork of gaming, I can’t help but want to try everything.
I’m not just talking about MMOs either. There are roughly a dozen Xbox 360 games I’m wishing I had time to play, that I just don’t. I may never get around to testing them out, and what’s more is that I just can’t justify buying most games I’d like to try because $60 seems like an awful lot to leave something on my shelf collecting dust.
But the worst thing? I work for this site, and I can’t even keep up with all the good stuff I want to see in MMOs. I may not actively play all the games I’ve once had a subscription to, but I always like to check up on them as new bits and pieces are developed. But even that’s becoming harder and harder to do.
I feel a little silly complaining about having too much of a good thing, but really that’s what it’s like. And with games like TOR, Rift, DCUO, JGE, TSW, WoD… need I really keep listing acronyms? It’s impossible to enjoy them all, but I’ll be damned if I don’t keep trying.
What about you, what game from your past have you not been able to go back and visit? Or more so, what game have you always wanted to try but never been able to really plug into?
