Seeing five movies in the cinema over the course of Veterans Day weekend. I'll be busy.

I know I am an inconsistent gamer.Permalink
I have to come to terms with the fact that I will most likely never have a decent completion percentage unless I am willing to start up a fourth gamertag in my Xbox history for that purpose alone - which I am not willing to do.

I also have to come to terms with the fact that I own far more games than I have time to play them. I love my job and I love my social life. I love my Xbox and my PlayStation, but not so much that I am willing to be a NEET to get a 95% completion percentage on everything I have bean dived over the last three years. I have been collecting games for well over a decade now. The local used game shops, the Xbox DOTWs and the PlayStation Flash Sales are like Kryptonite to my wallet.

Perhaps if I stopped buying new games, I could play what I already own for a few years and have more money set aside for my yearly vacations. The money I could spend on handful of used games that I might never get around to playing could be better put to use by investing in a gourmet meal out of town on vacation, or a luxury massage, or a few museum admission tickets. I already set aside a certain amount of cash for my future with every paycheck - setting aside some more money for that couldn't hurt, as well.

I think I will focus on playing what I want to play when I want to play it from now on. Some days, I want the quick and easy gamerscore. Other days, I want a genuine challenge. And still other days, I want to play a few rounds of MP with randoms. I will be the inconsistent gamer I have always been, but I will abandon all pretense of epic gaming goals and just have fun with it.

Hazar Khall This right here sounds like me in a nutshell. I actually feel bad for players unable to start games they can't 100%. I feel like a hobby should never feel like a job, unless it IS your job lmao.

No but good on you for taking the shackles off.
TA would be a far better place if people felt the same, as opposed to judgery over ratio/percent/whats played.

G Mason Patriot At the end of the day, gaming should be about enjoyment or relaxation. It should not feel like a job or chore.

Sir Paulygon I feel like I'm inconsistent at times too, lol. At the moment, I seem to be cycling between three games: HITMAN 2, Apex Legends, and Ghost Recon Wildlands. Seems to quench my thirst in all facets of gaming: SP, MP, and Co-Op.

Of course, I'll squeeze in a WP or Windows game during slow times at work, so that helps with any potential monotony, I suppose.

Then there's my Genre Project, as you might know about. That let's me sample all kinds of games. Unsure where my road lies after I get to another good stopping point when this project is completed. I see myself getting back into Role Playing games. Perhaps another project will present itself too.
