The best laid plans and all that jazz…I had such high hopes for gaming this past week and guess what? I blew it.
Saturday morning I woke up feeling terrible. My head was killing me and I thought I was going to barf all over the place. It hit me out of nowhere. It lasted through yesterday, so the only gaming I did over the entire weekend, was a wee bit of Destiny last night.
That means the only game I played much of was the lay around on the couch and sleep all day game.
It’s an overrated game.
I’ve recently been wondering why I’m playing so much multiplayer when I have a ton of single player experiences just waiting for me. I think it partially has to do with the fact that I inherently love co-op games, but I also enjoy the company of the people I play online with.
I just think I’m getting farther behind with my backlog because of it and I don’t really know how to feel about that.
I almost feel like I have so many games in my backlog, and the desire to play all of them all at once, it’s making my gaming spin wildly out of control. I am always wanting to play so many, then when I have a moment to sit down and actually play them, I have a hard time settling on which game to start next.
One thing I have been doing (and being ill was conducive to this) is catching up on a slew of horror movies I hadn’t seen yet. Some were okay, but many were total duds. Still, I love horror movies and I have a bunch more I’m hoping to get to this week.
I wish I had better things to report on this game challenge and my quest to get current, but I’m so far behind in 2016 releases, I have no idea how I’d ever catch up at this point. I’ve sort of ceded that there are certain games I won’t be finishing this year (e.g.: No Man’s Sky, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided) due to my lack of interest in them, but there are still so many I’d like to at least try before the end of the year rolls around. Then I start looking at the calendar and I realize there are just over two months until 2017.
So, what I’m really saying is, I’m in over my head and as much as I’d like to think I’m trying my best to catch up, I haven’t really been trying my best, and that’s pretty crappy. I hope to turn things around, on my game challenge front, as well as several other fronts that need action taken.
Have you ever had every intention of making progress on your backlog, and yet something, anything, keeps you from it? How do you make time to complete those games? Do you just hunker down and start them? Or do you make a schedule? Or do you somehow manage to stay current without trouble (I know one person out there does!)?
With that I wish each of you a stellar week with much productivity. I have some (moderately) interesting news coming up this week, and I look forward to sharing it with you.
