In a few respects, gaming was a LOT better when I was 13.
When I was 13, I had a Sega Genesis with only five games for it. Getting a new game was always a major event, especially when it involved saving up my allowance money for half a year. I had very few games, but I showered them with love and I mastered the hell out of them.

Now I am 38. I own several hundred games, most of which I will never show much love or master. I sometimes spend more time deciding what I feel like playing than actually playing. I sometimes feel like I need to keep adding to my collection just because I somehow think that is what my inner 13 year old wants, or because I want to impress my house guests by inviting them over and letting them play whatever they want to play. Buying a new game is not a major event anymore. The wonder of starting a new game is mostly dead and gone for me. I have become oversaturated with way too much of a good thing. It has reached the level of digital hoarding at this point.

While it sucks that I had obtained a painful wrist fracture, it actually has been good for me to take a break from the consoles.

I have been foolishly trying to impress others with the size of my collection. Which is bullshit, because I have a lot better things going for me than that. I have a job that I love. I volunteer. I have sobriety. I have my own apartment. My bills are paid. My kitchen is well stocked. My 401k is decent. And I have a good circle of friends. What else do I need to prove? I am doing better than so many other people out there, and I work hard to keep things this way.

In any case, I have realized that hoarding video games can be every bit as obsessive and compulsive as drug addiction can be. Nope, that statement is not hyperbolic, I know because I have experienced both.

I wonder if I can ever recapture the joy of gaming that I had when purchases were few and far between and I only made sure to get what was the best of the best at the time.

This is a silly blog post, typed somewhat uncomfortably thanks to one of my wrists being wrapped up. Thanks for reading.

Good luck buddy! The BioShock series is in my backlog, but I know you've been looking forward to this DLC! I'm sure you'll tear it up ??????

Thanks! So far I've done the first 2 arenas vanilla getting 8-9 of the 15 ribbons for each. I've been advised to upgrade everything before considering Blue Ribbon Champ

Burial at sea ep 2 boring... ? And Little Nightmare one of your GOTY ? We haven't the same definition of a good video game so... BaS ep 2 is just great !

Fair enough.

Comment by FullMoonBeaver at 07:46 on 15 Aug 2017

The fact they changed it caused this crap.

Comment by NoHeroes94 at 07:48 on 15 Aug 2017

The last 3 games in the row I have played have taken days to tally up the correct gamer score. Says something when 3rd party TA trackers > actual xbox ones.

Although this will mirror real life, in that I appear fit & ahead of the curve...But collapse out of the race in an unfit heap, wheezing, sooner than I should. :-(

I didn't even remembered there were rank in that game. I wish you luck for the DLC fish level; the only one that was a big issue for me.

Quite surprised this has happened so soon, esp as I have yet to work on the TT games. I may actually recover this, which I had thought as being unlikely when I started it

Comment by NoHeroes94 at 02:21 on 13 Aug 2017

Although I loved BioShock 1 & 2 (already maxed them out) I missed Infinite when it came out; was in uni/college and went through 6 months of barely gaming.

Comment by NoHeroes94 at 02:22 on 13 Aug 2017

I'm a hardcore completionist at this point and even I don't care if I get 100%, as long as I get 80-85%. It's still an amazing ride.
