I really really really envy Chris right now in his ability to be so complacent with the games he has, knowing he doesn’t have much else on the schedule to review until the Fall. He can sit back, relax, and play his current list to his heart’s content. It’s times like these that make me wish I didn’t have kids or that I didn’t do this for a living.
The not having kids wouldn’t help much, because since I review and write about games as my main job now, I can’t rest my laurels and catch up with the games I want to all the time. I know, boo hoo, poor me has to play so many games. Total #firstworldproblem and #gamereviewerproblem, I get it. Really, I do. But it is a problem for me, when I want to be able to squeeze in games for myself as well.
The biggest problem is that most of the games I want to find time to play are friggin’ RPGs. Here is the current list of RPGs I want to play or finish:
- Dragon Age Inquisition
- Bound by Flame
- Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn
- Pillars of Eternity
And this is all before The Witcher 3 releases! I’m just screwed, that’s all. Or I’ll just deny I’m in this stupid predicament and make it worse by playing more Mortal Kombat X and Diablo 3. Denial and procrastination always makes things better.
Everything is fine, la di dah… I don’t have these games to review for work or Pillars of Eternity strategy guide to review at all. Nope, it’s all good, and this cake is both delicious and healthy. AND A LIE.
