Addiction

2009-10-09

I feel as though I have very few vices in my life.  Nothing that I would consider terribly detrimental to my overall well being though my wife may disagree with me some on that.  Jury's still out.  I've done my best in both this space here and in the strip as a whole to steer away from as much video game banter as I can as it seems there is an abundance of those webcomics available for people who enjoy them (self included) and I feel like I would be doing nothing but churrning the same dirty water that others have churned before me.  This isn't to say that the occasional nod to my medium of choice won't surface from time to time, I'm simply not looking to make a habit of it.

I've just now realized I have too many games to play and no solid order in which to play them.  This is where that addiction bit settles in.  I'm currently 3/4s of the way through Final Fantasy X (on my seeming unending quest to finish what FF games I can as I had never previously beaten a one of them - 3, 4, and 7 are down), I've restarted a playthrough of Uncharted with all the noise surrounding the coming sequel, I'm on day 6 of 7 in Devil Survivor for the DS which is much further in time-wise than it may sound on the surface (brilliant game, by the by) and I just recently acquired a PSP with a copy of God of War and GTA: Vice City Stories.  This does not include the break I'm taking from Persona 3 which begins again after FFX falls or my third playthrough of Bioshock or even my almost-done-with tour of Prince of Persia (the new one, and meh, I say). 

In my defense, I do the same thing with books.  I buy an obscene amount and then read one, forget about the rest - or, at the very least, get an itch for a different genre - and pick up more.  Maybe that's not a good defense, but anyhow.  Grass is always greener, and all that.  My wife is a very loving and patient woman.

The sad thing is, I still have Final Fantasy 7: Crisis Core, Final Fantasy Dissidia, Final Fantasy Tactics, Uncharted 2, Borderlands, Dragon Age, Halo 3: ODST, Brutal Legend, Demon Souls, Persona 1, Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories.  Those are just off the top of my head.  I'm pretty sure cocaine is cheaper. 

Pleased

I'm so pleased to see Mr Blue using his personal posting system... now, we need to find a way to automatically feed these updates in to facebook, twitter, etc.... RSS probably?

Any sugguestions out there - let me know!
