With my purchase of Resistance 2 CE yesterday I started my gaming recovery from a decade of playing MMO’s. Don’t get me wrong, over that time I have met a lot of amazing people and spent thousands of hours happily killing mobs and questing. I would like to thank a few of those people for making my time online in various games truly a pleasure, namely Freckles, Holt, Osii, Octavious, Farid, Maghburn, Tetragram, and Beetlebabe (I know I am missing a few more). I tend to be shy so making good friends online is difficult which in turn makes these people even more special!
I will always look at my time playing MMO’s as a great gaming experience but I also know during that time I have missed out on a lot of great PS2 + PS3 games. Now that my life has gotten too busy for MMO’s my time is freed up for some console gaming. I hope to go back and play some of the amazing games I have missed over the last couple of years. I’ve sampled just a few of them hanging out with friends but never picked them up myself, titles like Uncharted 2 and the Ratchet and Clank series are just two that come to mind.
On top of that, this year seems to have a lot of great games coming out for the PS3. There are currently about 6 game that are being released this year that I have a strong interest in playing (Dragon Age 2, Deus Ex 3, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, Ratchet and Clank: All 4 One and if I can find the time Two Worlds 2)! I might just have to stock up on some coffee and pull a few all nighters to get through these games.
Oh well I guess it is never a bad thing to have too many games to play 🙂
