It is no secret that I love to play video games. What is the problem with that? Well, let me list off the games that I do not own but have an overwhelming desire to have and then I will tell you.

  1. Midnight Club 3 (PS2)

  2. Need for Speed: Underground 2 (PS2)

  3. Gran Turismo 4

  4. Guild Wars (In stores April 28)

That is over $200.00 worth of video games. That is the first problem. The second problem is the time to play them. Midnight Club 3 and NFS:U2 I could probably beat in week or two each game; they are more like arcade games and are not too involved. Gran Turismo 4 would consume me. I can spend hours tuning one car and testing it out on various tracks. That game is just... well, amazingly fun and engrossing. With over 650 cars in the game that can take just a bit of time; and, yes, the Gillet Vertigo is back (*drool*). Guild Wars would be good for occasional forays in to fantasy role playing without a monthly fee but has no real "end" to the game. If I am not being lazy, classes take up all of my time to play games. Calculus is fun but it isn't quite the same as trying to get fast lap times on Laguna Seca in various cars that I can only dream of owning.

Any way, those are some of the games that I want but won't be playing any time soon. Now off to sleep so that I can think clearly enough to learn L'Hospital's Rule before my test tomorrow afternoon. It isn't a very difficult rule but I haven't practiced it any [Yes, I have been lazy recently].


I have been so busy lately the only things I have had time for are demos for games.

That Gillet Vertigo has an Alga Romeo engine in it. You learn something new...

I just got my PSP. Now, I can play while driving to work! :_)

You need to get NFS:UG for the PSP. It is a hell of a lot of fun trying to stear in game and on the interstate :) It is a good beginner game because it is slower paced than say Wipeout. Puzzle games require too much concentration I find to play while driving :)

Good call! Right now, I'm playing Dark Stalkers. My car keeps floating and shooting fireballs, and the cops are bound to notice.
