So what have I been up to? Jesus Christ. Where has everything gone wrong?
Well, I'm still a hardcore gamer. 'Till death do us part, is what I tell my games. How could I live without such an imperative form of stress relief? Unfortunately, it seems like most other things spiral out of control. I'm probably not the only one though. The saying about the grass being greener on the other side wasn't made for no reason.
Most of my time is actually still dedicated to Black Ops. I had a quick Warcrack relapse that I, thankfully, took care of. Contrary to popular belief, I'm actually quite a busy person. This is mostly due to social obligations but, meh, it keeps me busy.
I finally took the time to rent Portal 2 today. What can I say? Wow. Obviously, like most sequels (Hangover 2), it won't have the same 'wow' as Portal 1. I don't think I can really attest this to worse gameplay/story as I absolutely think Portal 2 is amazing but I can probably blame it on rose-tinted glasses and the 'new' factor's absence.
Modern Warfare 3? Can't wait. SWTOR? Can't wait. New GTA? Can't wait. Blizzard Titan? Can't wait. Other than that... I could care less. Am I losing my versatility as a gamer and sticking with franchises/brands that I know? I think most gamers are, that's why developers and publishes are pushing out so many sequels. So what do you think? Here's to playing Need for Speed 44 in the future rather than something new and original.
On a side note, as far as NFS goes, I really wish they'd bring back Midnight Club. I love that series.
