James Bishop writes in his Spoony Bard column for TheGameReviews: "So was I able to then proclaim to my roommate, former TGR contributor Andrew Groen, that when travelling I have 140 or more games on my person that have I’ve never ever played. He whistled and then said to me the words I had been long needed to hear: 'You should really stop buying RPGs.' And I admit it. I am addicted to lengthy story-driven RPGs. I own nearly every Final Fantasy game ever released, including Final Fantasy XI, a great number of BioWare games, and even a fair collection of Black Isle Studios games. Heck, to top it all off, I have purchased both Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura from Troika Games on two separate occasions - once while the company was still in operation and again after it went under. I love these kinds of games and yet as time goes on I find myself playing fewer and fewer of them."
