I have been really deep in a gaming slump pretty much since I let my World of Warcraft sub lapse a little over a month ago. Other than a three day binge of New Pokemon Snap on the switch, I haven’t really been excited about anything gaming-wise. Part of it is that there’s a lot of other things going on right now, but another part of it is just that I have absolutely no patience with anything that has even the slightest learning curve.
Which got me thinking about how often I’ll fire up a game, and close out of it again in less than 10 minutes, which prompted me to toss up a poll on Twitter.
The results pretty much confirmed to me that I’m am ridiculously impatient!
I fully admit to having a lot of filler in my game library – I love bundles and tend to add a lot of things that I’m not sure about but might scratch an itch someday. I’m not terribly upset if those games never get played. However, I also have a lot of things I was really excited about when I added them to my library, and those are the games I’m going to target now.
I’ve gone through my Steam library and picked out fifteen games that I know I was excited to play. During the month of June, I plan to spend at least 45 minutes with each game. Not only will this get me playing more often, and giving these titles more than five minutes to capture my attention, I’m hoping to have enough to say about them to make at least a Quick Look post on each game.
There’s just a few days left to May, and I have a few more things to wrap up before I dive into this project, but hopefully, this space will be a whole lot more active than it has been this month!
