Re: What games are you playing currently?

I have no idea how some people manage to play so many games. There just isn't enough time in the day.

Still working my way through Gears of War 3 campaign---so close to fishing though. Also playing some Halo Reach and Valkyria Chronicles.

Working on Final Fantasy on NES, need to get back to Gears of War 3... Gonna hold off on getting Arkham. But when MW3 comes out I'm sure it'll be 100 percent that for the next month unless it's awful.

I've often heard people make that kind of statement. Quite honestly, it's ridiculous to say you don't "have the time." Everyone has nothing but time; you can't do everything simultaneously, but you can prioritize and make time for the things that give you pleasure. So I guess it's fair to say that gamers place a high priority on gaming — hence being able to cram them all in.

People could say the same thing about watching hundreds of episodes of a TV show. I could play through several dozen games in the time it takes to rewatch Buffy. Not surprisingly, the time I spend watching TV is inversely proportional to how much time I spend gaming.

I make sure to reserve hundreds of hours for TV and gaming. Not surprisingly my BMI has skyrocketed the past couple of years

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Sometimes I'll watch TV and play a game at the same time to maximize time. I've even been known to play two games at the same time occasionally.

Yeah, it's usually an RPG or strategy game with a portable game on the side. Although I once started up two NES emulators with Megaman II and Megaman III and played them both simultaneously with the same input. I didn't exactly make it far, but it was fun.

I played Arkham City for 10 hours today, and I've only completed 22% of the game!

And yes, I did take a vacation day from work specifically to play this game.

Re: What games are you playing currently?

Well I just picked up a Sega Master System and about a dozen games, so I'll be busy with that for a while. It's pretty fun "discovering" a classic console that I barely knew existed a month ago. Alex Kidd is no Sonic, but he can hold his own.
