Like you, I like video games, especially during this time of year where so many great games come out. I mean, where can I find all the time to play all these great and slightly mediocre games ? Lords of Shadow, Reach, Dead Rising 2, Pac-Man, Force Unleashed 2, BLOPS, Fable 3, Brotherhood and... Blood Stone ?
Don't you guys get excited when you walk into the shop and you see that new game on the shelf, in its beautiful wrapper, just waiting for you to pick it up and unwrap it (my favorit part is smelling the inside of the box). But what happens when you lose contol, when you start buying more than you and your wallet can play ? Amazon is probably a part of the problem. They discount their games like crazy and the fact that they ship it to you in less than 3 days doesn't help. Hey, Blood Stone is 50% percent off. Click ! Add to Cart. Just Cause 2 70% off ? I already own it on a different console but click ! Add to Cart ! Shattered Dimensions only 20 bucks ? Jeff said it was shit but at this price... Click ! Add to Cart.
We have an expression in France, "Quand on aime, on ne compte pas". Video games apply to this expression quite nicely. Have you ever had a situation where you just went mental on buying video games ? How many games do you buy each month ? And am I slightly mad for spending over 250$ in games in less than a week ?
