Please Stop Me From Buying Any More Video Games

Please Stop Me From Buying Any More Video Games

After buying  a PlayStation 4 in February last year I developed a little bit of a bad habit. I bought soooo many games in 2015, a lot more than what I could put my effort into, which I knew at the time as well. This has put me into a sticky situation, since I have t-minus 11 weeks until Dark Souls III releases in April.

Here’s the list of games I’ve started / currently playing, that I still have yet to finish:

PS4

  • Guacamelee (co-op with AlexJaq) Did not finish, but I'm finished with it!
  • Bloodborne – The Old Hunters DLC
  • Fallout 4
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • *Star Wars: Battlefront
  • Diablo III: Reaper of Souls (co-op with AlexJaq)
  • Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin Did not finish, traded in. Disappointed.
  • *The Elder Scrolls Online

Xbox One

PC

  • Fez
  • Undertale
  • Age of Empires II: HD Edition
  • *Blade & Soul

3DS

  • Pokemon Alpha Sapphire
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

* Games that don’t exactly have an “ending”.

Now in my opinion, this is a hefty list on its own. However, those games are only the ones that I have started or am currently playing at the time of writing this. Good news: I plan to cross off Guacamelee and Tomb Raider within the next week or two. Bad news:

Here’s the list of games that I own and definitely plan on playing:

PS4

  • Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY Edition
  • Child of Light
  • Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
  • Super Meat Boy
  • Magicka 2
  • Grim Fandango
  • Never Alone
  • Final Fantasy Type-0

Xbox One

  • Halo 5: Guardians
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • Sunset Overdrive

PC

  • Ori and the Blind Forest
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
  • Don’t Starve
  • The Floor is Jelly
  • Borderlands 2
  • The Last Remnant
  • Murdered: Soul Suspect
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Yosumin!

I am sad to say I went a little nuts during the last Steam winter sale. I haven’t even listed half the games I acquired in my Steam library through various medias. Those of course are last resort boredom remedies. I also haven’t mentioned my old games that I need to go back to like Skyrim and Ni no Kuni on PS3, but also old old games on the original Xbox and Nintendo 64. Help!

As a sort of new years resolution for myself, I’ve decided to not buy a game until Dark Souls III in April. So lets see how many I can cross off my list (mainly the first list) until then. I plan to post my thoughts on each game I finish so I’ll make sure to update this post once they are up.

Can anybody beat my list? I’m sure you can, it’s probably not as bad as I think.

P.S. I’ve already failed the resolution. I bought the first Top Spin game on Xbox for $5 in spirit of the Australian Open and Hewitt’s last matches. Whoops.
