Now that I’m pretty much done with grad school, I’m going to catch up on my hobbies. Reading books and mangas were something I could combine with my school-work, but gaming is a whole different issue. For some reasons, gaming is just one of those things I can only do when I do not have any other stuff on my plate. I think that’s because when I get into a game, I’m into it for hours. Reading allows me to escape reality, but gaming? It’s like I get sucked into it. I do not consider that to be a bad thing.
But when I had school, I had to step away from it. The only time I allowed myself to get into games during school was when I was re-playing a game I’ve already played or played adventure games like Gyakuten Saiban because those didn’t require so much on my part and is just another form of reading. But RPGs and other type games? Those I’d play mostly in between semesters.
Now, though, I’ve got some freedom and time to play! I’m happy about that. Now, if only someone would prevent me from buying all these games . . . I buy games that only add to my humongous backlog. I really need more time to play! Any hopes of clearing my backlog is, realistically speaking, not going to happen . . . but I can still try!
