So Many Games Out This Year Yet No Money To Play Them All

2011 has only just started and already many blockbuster games (and gadgets) have been announced to be released later this year. It’s a good thing for the video game industry as a whole, but that will mean some gamers will have to sacrifice purchasing some new releases as they simply cannot afford to play them all.

killzone 3 - Rental

infamous 2 - Rental

L.A. Noire - Not playing

mass effect 3 - Not playing

elder scrolls: skyrim - Waiting for GOTY edition before buying

gears of war 3(if it's released in 2011) - Not playing

batman arkham city - Rental

Metal Gear Solid: Rising - Not playing

RAGE - Not playing

new call of duty - Rental for campaign only if MW3 otherwise not playing

BioShock Infinite - Rental

Crysis 2 - Not playing

SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs - Not sure if I will rent or buy

Battlefield 3 - Not sure if I will rent or buy

uncharted 3 - Not sure if I will rent or buy but leaning towards buy if they have the multiplayer like in Uncharted 2 before all of the patches screwed up the game

Seems pretty easy for me this year. I'm still gonna buy games but not many off that list. I don't care about handhelds either so that helps me save money for next year when a lot of games come out.

Gaming can be Cheap if you are smart with it. Some of the games i bought last year on Steam discounts:

Bioshock 2: 14usd (few months after launch)
Metro 2033: 23usd(few months after launch)
Mass effect 2: 5usd
Prince of persia: 5usd
Dead space: 10usd
Darksiders: 10usd
Amnesia: 5usd
Batman AA: 7usd
Mafia 2: 14usd
Tombraider gaurdian: 3.6

Its all about how smart you are with your money. I have decided i am not buying any games at launch unless they are must have games like:

Witcher 2
Portat 2

Thats all i will be buying this year on launch, everything else gets played 2-3 months later between the 10-20usd mark.

jbl3162724d ago

yeah man, there's heaps of great games out!

harrisk9542724d ago

Forget having the money... who the heck has enough time! :(

ian722724d ago

Exactly. Time is a big factor for me. I have 85 blu-ray games and only completed nearly half of those. This year I am interested in about another 15 to 20 games but don't know where to get the time to play them.

schlanz2724d ago

My problem too. God, it sure is nice being able to afford all the games I want, if only there were twice as many hours in a day maybe I could play half of them.

bobrea2724d ago

Yea, it's definitely more of a time issue than anything.

MidnytRain2723d ago

The thing is, if you get a second job, you won't have time to actually the games you buy!

Hahaha ain't it the truth. I'm not even lying when I say the main reason I'm getting a part-time job (even though I can barely fit one in around my uni hours) is because of all the games coming out. :O

maniac762724d ago

thats why i only buy a few at full price and wait for the months to pass the buy them sealed but half the price lol. i dont need to play it when it gets released,plus ill save that much more for psp2 hardware or 3ds games :)

49erguy2724d ago

buying 2 a month for the next 2 yrs.

FrankMcSpank2724d ago

Same here:

Got LBP2 and Mass 2 in Jan. Sad cause I wanted Dead Space 2 as well. But amazon gives credit so every 3 games is a free game 4th game. And that's just PS3 exclusives.
