And those two games are already aging, yesterday's news. The next wave of games reaches yet farther, threatening to leave me farther and farther behind. The last game I finished was the original Mass Effect, but seeing the graphics on Mass Effect 3 left me feeling ridiculous. It's time I put aside my guilt at never having finished Bioshock, let alone System Shock 2. Or Baldur's Gate 2 and Planescape: Torment.
In hindsight, I should have arrived at this conclusion earlier. In all aspects of my life, I want to embrace the idea of living in the present instead of working always towards the future. From now on, I'm only buying games I want to play now, not games I want to save for a nebulous later.
