Because of my 1000 year backlog I've placed a moritorium on buying games this entire year.

I bought like an addict for over 20 years and feel like I'm responsible for the growth in the industry.

Someone else will have to take over, I'm done.

I hear lots of great games are coming out of Cuba, Venezuela, Iran and North Korea.

Don't forget Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.

No , besides would you rather have the state make your games and tell you how to play them. I think not .
