As usual Penny Arcade sums up the dilemma (or in this case multi-lemma) very well (i.e. with a good number of four letter words). Look at all the awesome choices that lie ahead of me this winter season:
2. Fallout 3 – I have not played the other two Fallout games, but if it has a huge open world and tons of guns, I’m there.
3. S.T.A.L.K.E.R Clear Sky – open world, tons of guns, ’nuff said. Oh also the first one was great, so that adds a little sumthin’ sumthin‘.
4. Call of Duty: World at War – all the CoDs so far have been great, and number 4 I played a lot (in fact, it was one of the few games that could hold my attention during those dark end-of-phd days).
Uh, hang on – every single one of those is a sequel. Wow, maybe you guys in the game industry should try to come up with some original IP huh? (they also all involve shooting stuff and blowing stuff up, but that is a personal choice on my part).
Dilemma! How will I ever afford all these? With my $$$ cash money $$$ that I now earn, biatch! Long gone are the days of….…so now if I work a couple hours, I can afford a game. Awesome. What a concept. I hope I don’t have so much work so that I can actually play all these.
