Default Are you more looking for games than playing games?

Confess!

I picked yes even though I haven't been buying IOS games for a while simply because when I was I basically collected hundreds of them and was even picking up things I never ran once

My state changes. Sometimes, I am buying games but don't play them - but just until I reached a certain amount of new games, then I start playing them.
Until my buying spree returns.

I chose yes because I search the app store everyday in the Game Center section and I'm on TA all the time to read all the impressions of new games and updates.

I've beaten most of the games I intended to, some games I never wanted to beat but rather get my achievements and dip out instead of waiting around for the long achievements ie: kill 10 zombies, kill 100 zombies, kill 1000 zombies, kill 10000 zombies kill 100000 zombies... I'd stop at the 100 or 1k instead of finishing them all off cuz I get bored pretty quick.

I spend lots of time looking at iOS games, even the ones that don't interest me. These days, the games have a habit of finding me, rather than me finding them, if you catch my drift.

Although I must admit, I am now a bit of a cheapskate about iOS games. I used to buy tons of games, but now I rarely buy iOS games because the ones that go free are enough to hold my interest for more time than I have to play them.

At least we can blame it on our genes - we are hunters and collectors.
Some guy at Apple knows this and milks us like cows. Damn.
Well, I'd like to explain further but I need to check Appshopper now.

edit: I am totally outing Pitta now because he's also such a guy!
He's searching for weeks, then plays a game frantically 24/7 and goes hunting again.
These games are all in therapy now... since he did not play them. He raped them.

And Squeaker... well. Beyond all boundaries, beyond reason.
The collecting genes of a nation of cavemen. I am in awe, she has my deepest respect.

I admit I am an app addict. Probably spend more time on TA per day than actually playing games. Sigh...

I am a lot worse about this when it comes to indie game bundles and steam, but yes. On iOS, it's pretty easy to tell if I will like a game or not within the first five minutes.
