We all reach those points in our lives where we suddenly realize that certain things don’t matter as much and its time to move on. For many years I saw myself as a collector always looking out for those video game deals wherever I could find them. As I started to acquire more and more games it became clear that I was acquiring games faster than I could play them or even beat them. I’m pretty sure I still have a few games that I don’t think I’ve ever played once. Even with that said I always had this idea in my mind that I may not have the time now but as I get older and eventually retire many many years from now that I would be able to finally get around to playing everything that I had purchased over the years.
But now as I’ve gotten older I’ve come to a point in my life were I dont feel the same way anymore and I’m come to realize that I don’t have the time and will most likely never have as much time as I did when I was a kid. Simply because as I’ve gotten older ive acquired new interest which take up time and money as well as just life itself.
In the end I will always be an avid gamer but now im at the point were I don’t need many games in my collection I just need the games that I will truly enjoy regardless of how many times I play them like Resident Evil 4, Legend Of Zelda Ocarina Of Time,Red Dead Redemption, Pokémon and so many other great games I’ve bought over the years. While I know its gonna be difficult to part ways I think mostly because I’m parting ways with the ideal that one day I would once again have the time to sit down and play all those games like I used to so many years ago.
