Finishing What You’ve Started #Gaming #DragonAge #Fable3
It never fails, the holidays come around and Steam goes and has a massive sale which empties your wallet and fills up your hard drive. This year I managed to resist most of the sales, only picking up Neverwinter Nights 2. Which I still haven’t downloaded, yet.
I have a gaming resolution for this year though. No more will I make purchase after purchase, never finishing my games. I’ve never really been a big console or single player RPG gamer to begin with but I think this year that will change. First on my agenda was Fable 3, for the XBox 360 (Feel free to add my gamer ID by the way, you can find me as Stargrace05). I had played a lot of Fable 3 previously and knew I must be some what close to the end. I won’t be giving any spoilers away but I’m glad that I managed to finish a game. It’s actually the first game I ever finished hence the reason for this post.
Next on my agenda is Dragon Age. I bought this back in March and played a few times before my PC got a complete overhaul which required me to reinstall and start over. I’m not very far into the game so far and I also have awakening to play through but I’m looking forward to it. The game is fun and the story intriguing.
Other games that are sitting on my computer that I’ve never finished (and barely played at all) include King’s Bounty (both The Legend and the Armored Princess), Neverwinter Nights 2, Gothic II and 3 (which I am not sure I’ll actually ever play, that was a random purchase that looked neat at the time but now I’m thinking WHY?!), Portal, and Torchlight. There are a few other games that I wanted to pick up but haven’t yet. It’s hard to justify spending more money on games when I have those to play through and a lot of great games releasing in the future (especially MMOs) that always take up a lot of my time. I also have the entire Sims 3 collection but I don’t really count that as requiring me to “finish” it because it’s more MMO-esc that way, there’s no clear end to it. I do feel that I’ve put in more than enough hours of entertainment to justify the cost though which you can see over at Raptr. It categorizes all the Sims 3 expansions separately, but they’re all there.
Whether or not I’ll actually stick with this resolution I have no idea. Knowing me I won’t finish another game until next year, but hey, at least I got one down!
Happy gaming, no matter where you find yourself.
