Pretty much what eeztheman said.

I'm now just not worrying about it and am enjoying what I play when I play.

I have a massive "To play" pile, which isn't helped by the fact that I keep playing Pacman CEDX instead. Maybe if I spent less time on this forum, I'd have more time for gaming.

From a quick glance over at my games corner, here's my 'to play' list, in no particular order....

Alice: Madness Returns (although I have played through/completed the original Alice that came with it as a free download)
Saints Row The Third
Resistance 2
Resistance 3
God Of War Collection 2
God Of War 3
InFamous 2
MotorStorm: Apocalypse
de Blob 2
Dead Rising 2
Lego Indiana Jones 2
FEAR 2
Rise Of Nightmares
Enslaved: Odyssey To The West
Wet
Deadly Premonition

And that''s not including all the games I've started and only done bits of that I also need to spend proper time with, like Dead Space 2, Skyrim, Sonic Generations, Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Zack & Wiki, etc. and stuff I've downloaded from XBLA/PSN. I could quite easily not buy any new games this year and still have enough to occupy me until 2013 :oops: :oops:

:shock:

Those piles of games just look like an ordeal, or a chore to go through. I'd look at that and just sigh, thinking "How am I going to get through all that?"

That's why I only buy a game I'm going to play next, then I buy another one when I finish it.

At the moment I am finishing off Final Fantasy XIII, and hopefully tomorrow I'll start Uncharted 3. That's my entire pile.

You have to be a gamer of Epic proportions if you can finish the original Alice :shock: I got to that Chess Piece King boss, and gave up.. Got in a argument with some kids of Gamefaqs as they said the original Alice is broken and can't be finished.. The only achievements I'm missing for the full 1000g on Madness Returns are just finishing the original Alice.. I also need to get the Snouts Liddell Memorys and all memorys on Chapter 1.. Even beating the last boss with no damage was easier then playing PC Alice

Do you mean the download version is impossible or the original PC release? Because I'm pretty sure I finished the original and don't remember it being overly hard either :? and I'm certainly not an epic gamer in any sense of the word!

My to play pile is to large to list, but covers Dark Souls, Brink, Rage, Infamous 2, Killzone 3, Skyward Sword and Sin and Punishment on the current gen platforms alone. Damn skyrim is just to compelling for me at the moment (and throw in the Dreamcast to take up the rest of my gaming time)

If i was to post the full thing, id probably spiral down into a hole of despair from the sheer amount of titles to play. Add all the stuff i will inevitably buy this year and its just too much.
At the moment im focusing on PS1 titles (excluding RPG's as they take too long) so ive got:

Silent Hill
Tomb Raider 2, 3 and Last Revelation
Ridge Racer 4
Rage Racer
Sentinel Returns (Which im kinda dreading as i hear it has 651 levels!?)
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

Was going to have to play piles, but the words piles and play are not a pleasant combo
