I had beaten tons of games over the years on SNES, Sega, Playstation. Before 2009, I used to pirate on PC as well and I beat reasonable amount of games. (After joining Steam, I even bought them and beaten some of them again.) As I grow older, I feel that I can’t give so much attention as I used to. I’m 30 now and finishing every single game feels like a burden. They tend to get boring, uninspiring. If a game catches my attention, usually I’ll finish them in short amount of time. But apart from them, forcing myself to like some other game probably ends up me hating it.
I like to track my progress however. Seeing which ones I haven’t played or finished is giving me some sort of a road map. I like it here. People are sharing their accomplishments, experiences and feedback. And seeing them makes me want to finish those gazzilion number of dusty games on my library. But let’s be honest, if you have over 2000 games, it’s not going to happen. That’s like more than my life time. I wish I could but I can’t. I shouldn’t. I’ll just stick with the ones that gets my attention immediately. Others unfortunately will be forgotten along with my wasted money.
If you’re still reading this, thanks for your attention as well. Just wanted to blow off some steam. I can’t describe how overwhelming it feels when I look at my library. My life is stressful as it is, adding more stuff to worry won’t help. I just can’t do that to myself.
