I just recently had 10 days off from work and I did a whole lot of nothing. Well, I did a whole lot of sitting on my couch vegetating and gaming. I hadn't done that it forever. Just hours upon hours of gaming.
You know what? I don't like it. Sure, it is just as addicting as it used to be when I was younger. But I just feel awful about it now. Countless hours wasted. I could have been far more productive. My entire apartment needs a severe deep cleaning. Laundry needs to be done. My car needs to be washed. I need to get back to the gym. I basically needed to do anything except what I did.
And time just flies when you are lost in a game. I'd look at the clock, tell myself I would stop playing in an hour and get some things done, and the next time I would look at the clock four hours had gone by. Again, terrible feeling.
That being said, I put in a ton of hours in CoD: Black-Ops, beat the game on Hardened, and already reached level 50 (max) in multiplayer. I also spent a good deal of time with Gran Turismo 5. I also played some Enslaved, but not much. Not because it was bad, but because I was addicted to fragging people on-line and modifying cars to make them go fast. I'll hopefully get back to Enslaved soon.
So I once again find myself with a ton of games left unfinished and not knowing which to play. Black-Ops and GT5 are no brainers, I'm seriously addicted to those at the moment. But I have Enslaved going, Castlevania has been all but forgotten, Super Meat Boy is begging for attention, and RDR: Undead Nightmare needs to be finished! And that is not counting the full back-log of titles I have incomplete and pending.
Anyway, I'm definitely putting up some Black-Ops and GT5 impressions soon.
