The "too many games to play" dilemma

I know, may this be the worst of my problems.

But, just wondering if anyone else gets into these and what do you do.

In the last three days I got: Space Miner, GT Racing, (and just this morning) Giana Sisters and Doom 2 RPG. ALL great games. And I'm kind of torn between all of them, jumping from one to another, not really able to relax and enjoy any one wholly. Anyone else have times like these? What do you do?

Oh, and the kicker: I also have Bioshock 2 sitting still in its box, untried, since early this morning. :/

What you need to do is concentrate one only one or two games at a time(or in my case, one page of games), and then you need to send Bioshock 2 to me right now so it does not distract you

Hehe, I've been in this situation for months!

Best is to pick an app of each genre - stick to those until you finish (or get sick of ) 'em!

ya i agree. i have not bought broken sword yet cuz i need to beat BASS and i have not started infinity project yet cuz i need to beat NOVA first. and i got infinity proj in december

also, it helps to stay away from pick up and plays. some of them are fun, but for me, i pass most of them by. i like games where i feel satisfied after completing them.

You need to start playing Bioshock 2. And maybe go on the Maury Povich show to deal with this "problem"
