As some of you know, I’ve been terribly sick for weeks now; unfortunately I have not improved. Among other things, I’ve been resting like crazy (if such a thing is possible), and sitting up at the computer hasn’t been high on my priority list.
Laying around as often as I have been has given me ample time to think about all the games I’d like to be playing, but don’t feel well enough to play.
You read that right: I’ve been so sick that I haven’t even felt up to playing games. I’m not sure I realized that was entirely possible before this round of nonsense.
As I’ve become ever more a couch barnacle, I’ve been thinking about Titanfall 2. I’ve loved what I’ve played so far. I’m more than aware it’s a game that can be played in one sitting (albeit a long one), yet I’ve still not seen the credits roll.
I’ve been thinking about picking up where I left off with Resident Evil 7, and I’ve not seen even half of what that game has to offer yet. I’ve been meaning to get back to this one in particular as I promised to loan it to someone and I’d like to make good on that sooner than later. Instead, I’ve just been thinking about the game, wondering what will happen and hoping it won’t get ruined for me before I have a chance to see the end for myself.
I think about Dishonored 2 and how I was roughly halfway through before I stopped for other things. I think about not having started Stardew Valley even though I have a strong suspicion I will love it.
I will tell you: laying around and thinking about all these games isn’t nearly as fun as plopping down and actually playing them.
Also, being sick is getting very old.
At this rate, I may just have to hunker down and play even if I don’t feel like it. I want to get into other games I have (namely, Yakuza 0) so I can stay on top of releases this year. This health nonsense is ruining just about everything.
Again, a rousing boo.
This got me thinking, have you ever been so sick you didn’t feel up to playing games? Did you simply rest or did you vow to play games anyway?
Come hell or high water, I’m going to force myself to play something this weekend. And so help me, I hope I at least start to feel better far sooner than later.
Please be safe out there. Cheers, friends.
