What are you Playing

2014-07-30_00007

Can you ever play too many games? I like to think not, but has anyone decided for themselves “hey, maybe I play too many games?” – I’m not talking devoting your entire life to gaming, but I mean pure number of games.

By some peoples standards, my steam library is tiny. I think I own 200 games or so now. I don’t own a console, but I have a handful of other games that are not on steam (Mostly MMOs). In any given week I probably rotate between 4 and 15 different games, playing each of them for a few hours here and there. Some times I can get on a game bender where I play just one game for weeks at a time until I’m so burnt out that I push it aside in disgust, only to lovingly pull it back out and start playing again a few weeks later. Actually most of my steam library follows this pattern.

So what about you, how many games at a time do you play? Do you stick to your guns and complete a game before moving on to the next one (those that have ‘endings’ at least) or do you dabble around in whatever catches your fancy?

Let me know in comments below!

  1. I actually want to play MORE games but I find it very difficult. I tend to have 1-2 MMO’s that I play most of the time. Currently that is Wurm & ESO. Then I’ll throw in a single player game which right now is Tropico 5.

    But sometimes I just get pulled in by one game and I don’t finish others. I love the Elder scrolls games but I still haven’t finished any of them! I would love to be able to play 15 games a week but I find I just can’t spread myself that thinly!

    I try to stick to a small number, and for years I’ve only been playing MMOs so that makes it easier as it drastically narrows the field.

    I usually have two or three on the go that I actively play. One as my main that I play with my partner and a second that he’s not interested in so I have something else to do if he’s too busy to play. Currently that’s Neverwinter and FFXIV but I feel the siren call of EQ2 now that SoE Live is here and that’s making it harder and harder to stick to just two!
