Hello all and welcome back to Playstation Base! I hope you are all feeling fine!
Do any of you feel like the title for this post describes you down to the bone? I’m sure that all of my readers are huge gaming fans, of course, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this, right? If I had the choice (or opportunity) to sit and play games all day, I would. Who wouldn’t right? Back to reality, I have neither the choice or opportunity to do this, which results in the same problem as the other 99% of gamers. With so many great titles on my wish list and even a few that I already own on my ‘yet-to-play’ list, I personally struggle to even compute how I might be able to fit them all into my tight schedule that is already filled with work and sleep. I’m sure that some of you suffer this same problem.
How I play is based upon the rotation of 2 games. For example, at the moment, I am playing through Dragon Age: Inquisition and The Crew. When I get bored with playing one, I switch over to the other– it keeps my mind fresh and stops me from getting what I call, clinically bored. Clinically bored is when you get so bored with playing the same game for so long, that you never ever play it again. Countless games have suffered defeat under clinical boredom, which is reason enough to find a way to tackle our own backlogs as opposed to creating them.
Having 2 games to play through already, and being relatively close to the beginning of them both, I find the notion of what is to come within the couple of months quite daunting. I’m one of those gamers that wants to play everything that comes out, even if it only looks mildly entertaining, I will still want to experience it. Dragon Age and The Crew are fairly extensive games, both with open world and upgrade opportunities etc etc and with Dying Light due for release in 10 days, I can’t see me being able to get either of them done in time. I fear that Dragon Age will drop out of rotation as I am struggling with it. I did review it as a great game and I can’t take away that fact, but I am finding myself lacking direction– I wander around endlessly completing quests that I’m just about able to complete… I don’t know.
Anyway, without going off topic, Dying Light is just the beginning of a long line of games due to come in the next few months. The Order is due out in February alongside Evolve, both, for me are must haves. With Final Fantasy: Type-0 and Battlefield Hardline set for March shortly followed by Dead Island in April, it leaves so little time to play them all! I guess it boils down to being able to prioritise, but I’m one of those that likes to get the game the same day it is released.
How do you guys cope with your backlogs? In fact, what games are even in your backlogs? Comment below!
