I think we all understand what you're saying, even with the multiple contradictions
One last thing to you: I'm kinda like StingingVelvet, in where I basically enjoy every solid, good game no matter what the genre.
It's not that I didn't enjoy it.
It's that I don't have time to play a game I moderately enjoy when there are so many out there I'll greatly enjoy.
Why should I play a good game when I have a huge stack of great games that I haven't touched yet? Hell, I just installed Crysis on Friday. I'm 3 years behind! Although, from what I understand, I'm at the part where the game gets bad. If true, well, I'm huge into Civ again, to the point that I don't even plan to buy Civ V for a few months because I'm having as much fun with Civ IV as I ever have.
Something needs to be incredible to pull me away from Civ IV at this point. "Good" isn't going to cut it. I still have Dragon's Age unopened for the Xbox, plus I want to play Halo Reach co-op with few buddies eventually. And man, I still have last week's episodes of Always Sunny and Venture Brothers to catch up on, as well as that new HBO show. Plus I've got 3 books I purchased last week sitting around. And I've got my first date since I moved to middle America. And I have time for none of this tonight because I brought a whole bunch of work home.
Where do I find time for games that are merely "good" to me?
