How Do You Spend Your Gaming Time?

Posted on Wednesday, May 18 @ 21:43:29 Eastern by

I've been playing a handful of different games, and I'm having trouble deciding what to play and when to play it. With publishers and developers finally realizing that there are months outside of September to November, we're all having to make hard choices between games. It doesn't help that the downloadable space is taking off too.

Right now I'm juggling Bangai-O HD: Missile Fury, L.A. Noire, and Brink. Honestly, I've got my time for Brink settled. I exercise everyday and the long matches in Splash Damage's team-based first person shooter help the time fly by. My real issue is with Bangai-O and L.A. Noire.

I need to "complete" both games for reviews. I can "get" Bangai-O from the outset. You don't need to play a lot of the game to see what's going on. L.A. Noire also allows you to understand its core gameplay cycle fairly early on. Unfortunately, L.A. Noire needs to be finished. Any reviewer who passes early judgment on the crime caper from Team Bondi runs the risk of looking like a huge asshole. Think back to the ending of Red Dead Redemption and how important it was to the western's overall impression on you as a player.

I've got a hard decision to make with my gaming time. Maybe my motivation is different as a critic, but I'd still like to know more about you. Leave your answer to the following in the comments and I'll feature one this week in The People Speak.

So, here's my question: How do you decide what to play and when to play it?
