Sick Day Games, the Sad Reality

The looming cloud of new games hover over my game collection.

The looming cloud of new games hover over my game collection.

Last week I got a flu-like virus that wiped me out for a full week of work.  This was the first time in my adult life I have ever missed that much time. Like many gamers I have a handful of movies and games that I have hung on to for years for that rainy day or the next time I was sick when I would be able to give them my long overdue attention.  Well sadly, I didn't touch any of them.  In fact, I played less games last week then I would have during a full week of work.  In light of this reality, I think I may have to take a hard look at the stuff I let clutter up my shelves that in all honesty I really don't want to play.  I have critically acclaimed games that didn't excite me, but people insisted I play.  I have movies I am tempted to say I have seen but still haven't gotten to, like The Social Network which will make my friend CJ upset.  My queue of games to play doesn't really ever get shorter, so I think it is time to trim the fat. I know these games won't have more interest to me when I retire in 20-30 years.  I found it depressing to let those games go though.  If I had the time I know I would have liked most of them, but the 10-60 hours each game will require may be unlikely in the face of more and more good games being released. I mean Mass Effect has a new game coming out next winter.  I have to clear up some space for that in the meantime.
