I know we're all busy most of the time. Most hours from each of our days are occupied either by school, work, families, or other things, like responsibilities to your loved ones, previous engagements, or even having to sleep. Every now and then however, we get a chance to recharge our batteries. Either by vacationing or by doing something else entirely, gaming for example.
Since most of us in this forum, consider our selves gamers, I'm sure we all have more than one game ready for when we get an opportunity like this one, but lets say for the sake of argument that you only have one game. 1 game to play as much as you want or as much as you can through out 1 week. You still have to sleep of course, eat, and tend to those who need you and such, but your primary activity that takes up the most time like work or school will not be present during that week. What game would you play during that week?
Me for example, I have had a few of this opportunities through out the years. The last time I enjoyed a game like this was GTA San Andreas on the PC. Before that it was monster hunter freedom 2 on the PSP. Before that it was Final Fantasy X on the PS2, and before that it was Zelda ocarina of time. I played all those games for 1 week more or less with little else to do during that time, cause of injuries or something of that nature, I've always been an active person. Those games trigger some of the fondest memories I have of gaming.
If I were to get an opportunity like that any time soon, I think I would choose an MMORPG. Maybe WOW, or maybe even a free to play online game. I've tried to stay away from those kinds of games mostly because the moment you cant play you end up falling way behind everybody else. Your party or guild or whatever becomes stronger than you and you can no longer do dungeons or quests that they are planning on doing. I've played a few of these games before. WOW, 2 moons and FLFYFF and even though I went back to each of those games at least once. I simply could not get into them for that very reason. The time requirement on those games is just too big. I enjoy the exploration of a new world - part that those games offer. Butt other than that, well, you know.
So Giant Bomb community. What game would you play if you had a whole week of gaming ahead of you. Maybe a classic like Diablo 2, which can easily last you a week or more if you play with friends, or maybe something recent like Skyrim. Maybe you can play a bunch of COD or Battlefield online, or get back into your WOW addiction or something. You never know when you'll get an opportunity like that, hopefully not due to injuries. So if you do, have a plan just in case. Otherwise you might end up missing out on one of your most memorable experiences you can have as a gamer.
