I really hope that games publishers don’t do this every year, where they keep so many months dearth and then cram everything into late October and early November. I really want to have time to play nearly all of the games through completion that are released in the same year, and not have the mad rush where I realize that things just ain’t gonna get done. It affects not only what I vote on for Game of the Year for work, but I hate not getting all of the strategy guides reviewed that I wanted to get done either.
There are two games I have purchased but have not been able to touch at all, and both make me extremely sad (and you can’t blame my obsession on Diablo 3 for either, as I haven’t touched that game in weeks). Nope, Dragon Age Inquisition isn’t on that list of regrets, because I knew by July I couldn’t get that game in.
However, I did think I could play and finish both Call of Duty Advanced Warfare and LEGO Batman 3 by the end of the year. I most likely couldn’t platinum in LEGO Batman 3 as I am wont to do with LEGO games, but I could at least finish the story and the freeplay mode. And maybe have a strategy guide review for the game of all the crazy things.
At least I’m not traveling for the Christmas holidays this year, so I should be able to get some gaming time in, possibly for one or both. Yet I know I have other games I’ve already started and I need to finish for strategy guide review reasons. It’s such a #firstworldproblem, having too many games to play, and I’m well aware of that. I want to be able to do it all and remain sane. IS THAT ASKING TOO MUCH?
Any games you wish you could have played or finished this year? Help me out, I can’t be alone in this.
