I know it's a bit ironic, considering I'm posting such a thought in a Giant Bomb forum, a major video game website. BUT, I do find myself having this inner conflict more times then I'd like to admit. I probably buy about 5 games a month between me and my girl, and I'd be lucky to have beaten ONE. Mind you, I do work full time, but I am sure many of you work just as much as I do.
I'll give you an example, I bought Guacamelee the day it released, played for about 3 hours, haven't touched it since. Same goes for Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. I don't know if I'm doing a bit of growing up (21 living on my own) and realizing some time could be better spent doing more productive things. BUT productive to me IS playing a video game. An experience. A story. It is ten times more interesting going into these worlds then anything else I could think of. So why do I hesitate when I pick up a controller?.. I don't know if I have the answer. I was wondering if anyone here went through that similiar experience or might provide me some insight.
