New Year’s Schmresolutions: Play Before You Pay
I never know how to start these kinds of assignments. What will I do differently in 2014 in terms of my gaming? Honestly. Probably nothing.
I don’t play games too often or too little. I’ve struck a nice balance between work, reading, gaming, and trolling for ass.
I’ve got a good system going where I don’t spend much money on gaming and yet still play the latest games. I just play them really fast and sell them right away. At most, I spend $10 to play a game. The only thing that messes it up is when I want to keep a game longer, like Bioshock Infinite. Then I have to reinvest $60. Since there aren’t that many big titles I want to play a year, it works out fine. Of course, I’ll buy the occasional game during a Steam sale.
That’s it! I’ve got it.
I won’t purchase a computer game until I’ve AT THE VERY LEAST played each game in my Steam library once. Right now, I have not accomplished that feat. There are at least a dozen games I bought while they were cheap and still haven’t fired up. I still haven’t played Gone Home or Don’t Starve.
Curse you Humble Bundle and seasonal Steam sales! You’re just too damn tempting with all of your “Hey. Hey. You know you want this game. Look. You can buy 6 of them for the price of that Xbox game you wanted.”
So while Adam is attempting to be less of a critical asshole. I will attempt to gain some self-control.
