So many games, not enough time.

I’ve previously discussed how my wife and I are currently addicted to City of Heroes. This has been taking up all our free time lately. Our Netflix movies sit unwatched (the $20 a month fee isn’t so economical when you let 3 movies sit for months), yet I refuse to cancel, because Netflix rocks, and I am determined that we will again get our use out of it.
Our Gamecube sits unused. Metroid Prime, Rogue Squadron 2, Super Smash Brothers Melee, Mariokart, and others sit unplayed and unfinished. Of course, my consoles always end up neglected in favor of my computer, so I don’t know why I keep venturing there. Once I bought a stand alone DVD player, I sold my PS2 and games as a bundle on Ebay. I haven’t had a case of “Nintendo thumb” in a long while (though I have developed some bad City of Heroes hand).
On the computer front alone, there are many games out that I want to play (I’ve still never finished Jedi Academy, which is installed on my computer”. There are many more coming out in the future that I am eagerly anticipating. Tabula Rasa, and World of Warcraft may give City of Heroes some competition. Middle-Earth Online appeals in concept, but somehow it just hasn’t grabbed me.
One game, I am determined to make time for, however, is Evil Genius. I will play this game.

    I would ask (very politely, of course) for your GameCube, but it wouldn’t work over here. *frown*

    I’m waiting for Evil Genius, as well; all of the previews I’ve seen so far have looked amazing! I’ll be really dissapointed if it doesn’t appear by the end of 2004.
    Have you seen the sneak peeks of Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines yet? It strikes me as a game that’s up your alley.

    Give me your Gamecube games! I only have one. Sob.
    That Evil Genius looks good. Actually it looks like something of a rip off of Dungeon Keeper, but that’s OK, I loved Dungeon Keeper – and in concept more than practice. I’ve always been waiting for a game to get the concept just right.
    I’m pathetically behind the times on computer games. I think the 2 newest games I own are Civ 3 and Diablo 2. I just don’t know what’s good anymore. I guess I should start buying games magazines – but then I just pine after all the things I can’t afford.
