Feeling a Game Glut

I'm in one of those times when I have a glut of games I want to play, and not enough time to play them. Here's all the games I'm playing, or thinking about playing right now:

Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria - starting a new toon... I'll prolly never see the mines, but I like the new Rune Keeper class.

Empire: Total War - my Road to Independence campaign patiently waits

Trine - Clever platformer, I'm definitely going to beat it. Again, time.

World of Goo - Digging this game, when I get a few cycles to play it.

Sims 3 - I keep having the urge to get this and play it. I will try to hold off until its cheap, or until I have more time for it.

Arma II - Seems interesting. Again, maybe best worth holding off on it.

Battlefield 1943 - for fun and shooting.

Too Human - arrived from gamefly, sounds like mindless fun.

Supreme Commander - oddly, I have the urge to re-install and play this.

Crysis - Still installed, and generally un-played. Maybe I'm not in single player first person mode?

Not to mention the regular influx of
Peggle and Plants vs Zombies


I may not have all the time I want to play them, but its a damn good time to be a gamer.

I know how you feel at the beginning of the summer I amassed what I refer to as my "Summer Gaming List". Basically its comprised of a lot of games that were on clearance that I always wanted to play, or ones that have been sitting in my library for months.
So far my list consists of:

Prototype

Star Wars: the Force Unleashed

Valcuria Chronicles

Finish Tale of Vesperia

What makes matters worse is that the big titles start coming out next month! So far I have plans to play:

August: Batman: Arkham Asylum

September: Halo: ODST

October: Brutal Legend!!!!!!!!




oh p.s. When you start up Too human let me know I would love to play that again with a friend! i can even bring my Level 50 Bio engineer! [thankfully the game scales to your party].
I would love to roll a new char.
Done and DONE!
I don't know if you have a Goodwill near where you live, but the one I work at gets returns and overstocks from Target often, and we've been seeing a lot of Sims 3 copies come in. You may want to check Goodwill for the rare chance to get a copy on the cheap from there.
I feel it too dude, although the funny thing is I always find myself going back to much older games like Battlefield 2 or Counter-Strike, even though Killzone 2 is waiting to spin up in my PS3.
Join the club. My gaming calendar is looking pretty empty this month...yet I have lots of games to play.

I'm currently juggling between:
Eat Lead: Return of Matt Hazard (almost done)
Prince of Persia (half way?)
Battlefield 1943

I need to get back to:
Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers (half way done...maybe a little more)
Forza 2 (this is more of a filler game, but I was making such good progress a month ago)

Games I have direct access to and really want to start:
Ghostbusters

Then there a good number of games I really want to play, but don't have yet like Prototype, Wolverine, and Red Faction. Plus there are a lot of good games that will be coming out in the next few months.
Im finding it rewarding to be snobby. T There are finally so many games out there that it's actually beneficial to turn my nose up at some. We have/had some similar games on our lists.. and here's why I axed them off of mine:

I watched Giant Bomb's quick look on Arma II and immediately crossed it off my list. Easy Peasy.

Similarly I heard some bad things about Ghostbusters. The developers of that game had enough time to make it really really good good, and apparently it's meh. There are plenty of non-meh games out there to play.. so See ya!

I'm waiting for Empire Total War to get that multiplayer campaign patch before I go back into it -- or if that takes too long, then wait for the latest Total Realism version for the new patch.

Battlefield 1943 is good, but not enough people on my friends list are playing. The Battlefield series of games really need a good squad to get going, so this will probably soon fall off my list as well.

I didn't like Too Human. It got old fast. :'( That doesn't mean that you shouldn't play it.. just saying that even when gaming was slow, I couldn't bring myself to keep it from Gamefly for long.

Now LoTRO. I'm loving that game. It's had years of polish that I now get to enjoy (instead of playing Beta). Plus, it's bigger than it was before. Oh boy!
Telling you, the 2 games you should be playing without hesitation are Prototype and Red Faction. RF= game of the year
Yeah, the Trine demo on Steam was pretty fun, so I might have to play that. Sims 3 I want for less than $50 and ON STEAM PLZ. ;)

My worst danger right now, though, is firing up Rise of Nations again. Still one of the very best RTS's ever.
