Ever gone to a gamestore looking for that certain game? Shuffled through all the possible shelves and dug to the bottom of the sale bins? Even asked the salesman, but still no luck?

I know how you feel. Just today I went to 6 different stores looking for that certain game and now at the end of the day all I got was a case of beer and a huge urge to drink them. When I really start to think about it, this happens to me every time I go in shops looking for something. Whatever it is, it isn't there.

It was so easy as a kid. When I had the money, I'd just go to store and pick a game that looks the most
interesting. No looking up reviews, release dates or prices on the internet. Only the look of the game cover mattered. I think this shopping tactic makes me overlook many great lesser known games. Like Enslaved, what tinymhg was talking about in his blog.

Today while I was scavenging the stores for the treasure, I saw many different games that I had never even heard of, but the fear of disappointment kept me from buying any of these games.

It's good for your wallet, but you'll get stuck on tracks. Buying just the most highly rated and discussed games, while the smaller unknown games will be left on the shelves and eventually to sale bins. Then guys like me come and push them around without even giving a second thought, just looking for that certain thing.

I'll go looking for the game I was looking for today, again tomorrow and maybe I'll grab some cheap game I don't know anything about with it. Maybe you should too. You might find a hidden gem.
