Yesterday, I posted a GIF compilation article on Gamemoir about how gamers react to video game sales. One of the the major things I pointed out was the fact that we tend to hoard video games and never finish them. Are we saving money if we never actually play the games to begin with?
I’ve often told myself that I will only purchase the video games that I will surely play. Like many others, this was easier said than done. It’s not that these games were terrible. They’re awesome games that I was pining to have since it came out. I was eagerly waiting for a sale so I could snatch them up for good deal. Sometimes I feel like I push myself to finish a video game more if I bought it for $60 or else I would have buyers remorse.
I don’t have a specific reason for not finishing each game. I think it came down to just me being busy or taking these games for granted because I got them so easily. Let me know if there is anything that I should seriously push up to my priority list! I would also love to hear your own stack of games you’ve taken for granted in the comments.
1. Infamous 1 and 2
2. Uncharted 2 and 3
3. Assassin’s Creed Revelations
4. Tomb Raider
5. Sleeping Dogs
6. The Witcher series
7. Mirror’s Edge
8. Batman: Arkham Asylum
9. Far Cry 3
10. Spec Ops: The Line
After finally taking into account all of the video games that I have taken for granted, I totally feel like I’m disrespecting these awesome games by not playing them. Summer is almost over and I barely touched these video games. I’m not even a big completionist in video games since I mostly play games to experience the story and to have fun. It’s quite funny how I rave about video game sales, but I rarely make the most out of it. Perhaps, I should print out a list of all these games and have it plastered on my wall to remind me not to buy too much video games in the future.
