That is, Gaming.
Recently, i mean in the past year or so I've had absolutely no inclination to really play games. I've got excited about them, i've read reviews about them, i've even bought them, but that's as far as it's got. I just don't play them. Recent examples of shrink wrapped gaming goodness on my shelves include Resident Evil 4, MGS: Snake Eater, Lumines, The Castle of Shikigami II, the DS & numerous games, Mario Golf, Viewtiful Joe 2, Katamari Damacy, 1080 Avalanche. There's many more like that.
And I don't get it (apologies for beginning that sentance so) at all, I really want to play these games but baulk at the idea of putting it in the machine and spending an hour playing it. I need hours, no days, no weeks to complete all of that lot above and I'd not even have got started. I want to play Shenmue 1 & 2, complete Ninja Gaiden (finally) and actually give Fable a chance, but how will I ever be able to do this? How does anyone play games regularly and not neglect the real world of pubs, clubs, cinema, restaurants and plain fun? I can hardly come back from work at 7pm and play games solid for 4 hours, hell I don't even want to.
Awareness of so many quality games around us is terrible, I'd rather be ignorant and think GTA and Half Life 2 are the only good games, that way I'd have completed them both and be happy to look out for the next big title. I'd also have rather a lot more cash.
I don't know where I'm going with this really, i honestly can't see when i'll fire up one of the 3 consoles next, maybe a quick go on PGR2, as it is quick.
