Too many games


I found myself craving a good RPG a couple of weeks ago and now I have Fallout New Vegas and soon to be knee deep in Fable III.  F:NV is aready a ton of RPG, and I then there is Costume Quest!  Be careful what you wish for.  Now I have to think about what is is around the bend, like Assassins Creed Brotherhood (which looks awsome after reading about it in Game Informer), not to mention games I may have to pass on such as Rock Band 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops and ones that that I have already passed on such as Castlevania, Dead Rising 2 and Enslaved.  I hope you games understand, but I just can't afford to buy all of you!  Here's to hoping that you are still on my mind when the busy season is over. 
 
Oh, and what about the games that I have and haven't finished yet.  HAWX 2, Death Spank: TOV, Hellboy: The Science of Evil (yes, I know it's a bad game, but it's Hellboy), Ace Combat 6, Monkey Island 2 SE and I'm sure there are more!  Plus I would love to put in more time with Civ V and Halo Reach, but when will I find time.  Plus, I just started a Gamma World campain.

I'm so glad I'm done buying games until portal 2.

I can't wait for portal 2.... but there is a sea of games to play before we get there...

Play Enslaved. I highly recommend it. You should at least rent it considering some of the games that you decided to purchase.

If there's one game I buy this holiday season, this will be it, if only because I fear it will go the way of so many other great games with a ton of heart that were overlooked due to bigger, blockbuster games.

I completely feel your pain. Over the last month, we got Guitar Hero, Civ 5 and Medal of Honor, still mean to get Halo Reach, picked up Fallout: NV, have Fable and Rock Band preorders for next week, and have Call of Duty on Preorder. 
 
I mean, I feel like at least I won't be spending as much on games for Christmas this year... but damn. 
 
Financially and time-wise, this is such a strain.  We have to practically schedule who gets when on the 360 too now.

At least it means you will have plenty to do over the summer when the prices begin to drop.

Enslaved unfortunately is the poster child of a rental game. It's around 8 to 10 hours long with it's strong point being the story and atmosphere. The gameplay just isn't fun enough to play through it more than once.

In my book, if a game is worth playing, it is worth buying.  The only question you then have to ask yourself is how much you are willing to pay for it.  That is when keeping your eyes open for a sale.  I have picked up many games at Target that have only been out for a month or two on sale for $40.  In my book $40 is a good price point for a game.  But renting and buying used just seem to rob the people that work hard to bring me these great games, so I am willing to spend a couple extra bucks to buy it new.  Heck, I got Blur for $10 new a couple of weeks after it came out!
