Upon actually taking the time to count the items I have in my Steam library, I realized that my estimate of 70 unplayed games was a fair bit off. It's actually 97.


Can you somehow generate a list? I'd be curious to see what you're into.

Sounds to me that his answer would be "Everything."

Haha I did the exact same thing. There is a skyscraper in the north part of midtown that doesn't have anything blocking the ledge that I frequented

Some games will let you copy stuff to SD card. Might be able to transfer some saves that way.

I wouldn't count on being able to access your VC stuff given the way they tied the accounts to the console.

I literally stare in amazement of the number of games Sarcastic can plow through in a given month. I get maybe 2 games a year, end up zoning in on one and don't even play it enough to finish. I got AC3 2 months ago and have put in maybe 6 hours.

I'm actually excited for the new Sim City. I played 2000 a ton when I was little and stopped after that version. I may even pre-order it...

It's a type of game I like, plus it allows for the constant child interruptions where you don't have to worry about some 12 year old shooting you while you change your daughter's diaper (or listen to Rylan complain about me running around so much). And if you get bored, you can throw in some disasters to satiate your need to destroy things.

What do you mean? This given month I am doing... well, I did R&C Tools, did the little game Rochard that took like... not sure, maybe 6 or 8 hours and was amazing, and now I'm doing R&C Crack. Probably halfway through. I only play few to several hours a day, typically, although there are days I can play most of the day since I don't work 9-5. And I routinely take days off from playing. I spend more time with my bass(es)/music than I do with games. I wish I could play more!

Ohhh (re-read your post), if you are doing just 2 games a year, I get it then. Yeah, but I think there are people here who play more than I do.

What I am blown away is how Rylan can finish all those long games. Or how whoever above it was decided to play Mass Effect 1/2/3. I literally don't have time to play that or Red Dead Redemption or Dead Island or Far Cry because they're too damn long. Maybe I could make more time, but as I play I often start feeling guilty that I should be doing something more productive. You guys ever get that?

I just notice you typically post the most new games you have gotten/played/going to get. If you are doing shorter games, it makes sense, but I always see you posting new games you are working on (not in a bad way, just amazed).

There are probably others that play more, but for some reason your posts stand out in this thread as posting the most games.

Maybe I could make more time, but as I play I often start feeling guilty that I should be doing something more productive. You guys ever get that?


The inevitable screaming infant 1-2 hours into any gaming session (at night) makes me get that, lol.

Yeah, I have a pile of games that I have yet to play and I don't know when I'll get to them. I figure if I see something at a good price, why not get it. Figure it out later. Because if I don't get it, I'll either forget about it and never get it, ever, or it will sell out and I'll have to pay 3 times as much for a collector's item. I literally have games still for the PC from several years ago I haven't gotten to. :evil:

You'll hopefully get more time to play when the kid gets a little older so you could sit him or her down with their own video game. Unless the wife saddles you with another infant, lol.

Just picked up Far Cry 3. So psyched. I'll have to wait til tomorrow morning to start it, though...ugh.

I had a $25 Christmas giftcard to Gamestop, and returned Uncharted 3, Undead Nightmare, and Grid. They gave may $26 for those 3 games (extra 50% for trade in right now). FC3 is on sale for $49. I had to pay a dollar. Wooooo!!!

The reason I can plow through games is because I have literally not much else to do these past 4 months. I was on bed rest for 2 of them and the last 2 I am still not capable of being active. So yea lol I have lots of free time.

As for yelling at bhaw, its only cause we would be working together and then all of a sudden he does a 180 and I end up inadvertently destroyed by enemies cause he didn't back me up lol

AC III is amazing. I think since I know a lot more about American history than I do 15th century Europe it is making it more fun for me.

Yeah, I preordered SimCity already. I, too, played 2000 a lot back in the day. It's a game that our whole family will enjoy, including Madame CFO, lol.

I picked up NFS Most Wanted for the various mobile devices in the house. Good game, looks great on my S3.

I actually just stopped playing AC III. I don't really care for it all that much. The story is interesting, but jumping through time so frequently is really annoying. The recruiting assassins thing was interesting in the other games and this one sets itself up better to incorporate that than any other game in the series. Not sure why they skipped out on it.

Started Far Cry 3. Pretty awesome so far. Already got crushed by a group of komodo dragons. I'm only a couple of missions in, but I've been exploring a little bit. Guns feel awesome, stealth much better than FC2.

I think I'm gonna be playing this one for a while. :thumb:

How's that foot doing anyway? Now that you're doing better and the prognosis is good, want to share some pictures if you took any? You can zip them up and upload somewhere. I'm talking a really bloody one right after it happened.

Even though it's a oldie, Monopoly for NES. Played it last night for close to an hour. It was fun for a while but it got boring towards the end.
