How many games are you playing right now?

Post by jimbo_too » Thu Oct 18, 2007 2:31 pm

I'm just wondering, because I am playing:

- Gain Ground - MD
- Conan - XB360
- Flatout Ultimate Carnage - XB360
- Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection - PSP

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: <------------ Me

I find it hard to concentrate on one thing for too long, so I flit between each. How many games do you have on the go right now?

For me it's

" 4+ - What does 'sunshine' look like, again? "

I currently playing the following, mostly!

* Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike
* Sega Rally Champuonship
* Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
* Rez
* Head Over Heels (a quick go in between other games)
* Sonic 2 (another quick blast or two in between other games)

Mostly because I've had support phone this week again making it a pain in the ass to go out - & it's too cold to go out these days!

I seem to have about the same amount of time available as you, and have 4 on the go:

- Gears of War
- Halo 3
- Oblivion
- Just Cause

I'm flitting between the 4 titles at the moment, so it'll take me ages to finish any of them.

New Super Mario on the DS and Medal of Honor: Frontline on PS2.

I usually play one game on a handheld and one on a home console at a time - it's hard enough even doing that much these days!

I jump between games all the time. I have a number of games in which I complete a single chapter or level at a time and then move onto something else. Most of these games work well in shorter chunks though and playing this way stops me burning out on them before the end.

At the moment I'm dipping in and out of:
Oblivion
Rogue Galaxy
Global Defence Force
Final Fantasy Tactics
Motorstorm
Crush
Test Drive Unlimited


...whilst actively playing through:
Skate
God Hand
