Previously, I admitted on the program that I have a slight gaming addiction. I think right now I have about 30-50 games sitting around in various states of completion, and yet I always have to pick up more. It may be the Gemini in me who wants to experience everything all at once… Maybe it’s the obsessive need to acquire more collectibles that’s been drilled into me since the earliest Mario games (I always needed to find just one more 1-up), but for some reason, I enjoy the conquest involved in picking up a new game. I also have the same obsession when it comes to books, although I feel that books require a good home, and no one will care about them and treat them as well as I will (I may need to bring this up with my analyst…)
Anyway- my point is, I have a need to acquire games, and now that I have a family, house, and responsibilities, I need to acquire them on the cheap. That is why the Steam Holiday sale is so evil. Hundreds of games at greatly reduced prices… gaming Nirvana at the click of a mouse! Like a junkie waiting for his next hit, I click on Steam EVERY DAY at 1:00 PM EST to see the new deal of the day.
“C’mon kid- just try it- It’s 75% off today… You know you want to play it… It’s back to full price tomorrow, and then you won’t have the chance again…”
“But I have to be good… I have too many games to finish as it is…”
Maybe I should go over THIS with my analyst too… Of course, therapy costs money, which can be used to pick up more games…
