Hi everyone. I woke up early this morning and have been sitting here staring at my monitor, realizing how many games I have installed and I think that I need to make a confession. I'm addicted.

I don't know why I can't have only one game installed at a time, or why I can't concentrate on and play only one at a time, but I think I need help because I have all of these installed:

Barrow Hill (replaying, I LOVE this game)
Secrets of Atlantis: The Sacred Legacy
Last Half of Darkness: Shadow of the Servants
Riddle of the Sphinx
Delaware St. John 1 (replaying, I love this game too)
Blackwell Legacy
and
Sherlock Holmes the Awakened

Am I getting out of control or what? lol! Last night I was looking at ALL of my games here on my desk and wondering if I had enough space to install ALL of them so that I could play them at will and on a whim....Good Lord! smile

Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this. But, if I am, then come pick me up and take me to the asylum, I can't stop myself!

Cat, wanting to play all of the games at one time and wishing she actually COULD! evil

Cat,
I can't say that I've got a lot of games installed on my computer; I've got enough of a problem remembering from game-playing time to game-playing time what I'm doing in ONE game. HOWEVER, my games to be played are all over the place! lol They're downstairs in a cabinet, downstairs on a bookcase, under my bed in storage bins-2 of them-and scattered all over the rest of the house. The way I play, I'll have to live to 100 to get anywhere NEAR completing all of them!

Cat -- I hesitate to admit this, but...when my hard drive fills up, I just buy a new computer. I now have four computers, from Win 95 to Win XP, all but the latest with hard drives chock full of games.

You are not alone!

Wanna go into group therapy somewhere together? laugh I know this nice online multiplayer adventure game where we can meet in a cozy neighborhood to discuss these particular issues.

Becky, Good Gracious! Fang yells at me because I have 2 computers and I only saved my 98 so that I could play all the old software in my BAAGS pile. You have helped me feel good about myself. I was feeling selfish.

I feel better too, now. I have a Windows 95, a Windows 98, a Windows ME, and a Windows XP. And let's just say that I don't use them to do spreadsheets. lol

WOW! I had no idea that the gaming addiction could go this far! I've never had more than one computer and one game going at a time. Multiple computers with so many games installed just blows my mind. I do have extra games on hand to be played (and some on order) but not to this extreme. Am I just a little BAAGie in comparison?

Catbelly36, you are not alone laugh
Not only do I have multiple games installed on my PC (at the moment, amongst others, Sherlock Holmes The Awakened, Faust, Keepsake, Time Stand Still, Dreamfall, NeverWinter Nights (an RPG), Zoo Tycoon 2, several demo's and a beta or two, I also have a couple of gameconsoles on which I am playing games such as Discworld and Glass Rose on my PlayStation, Still Life on my Xbox and Phoenix Wright on my Nintendo DS...

Every now and again I try to promise myself and my husband that I will really definitely finish a game before starting a new one, but I almost never succeed. laugh

I play one game at a time. Whats the rush? I work between 8 and 12 hours a day, I dont have the time like I used too. Now I even forget where I leave off when I stop. Use to play them about 6 hours a day straight till real life got in the way..

Becky---LOL! I feel better already! <BG> And yes, let's stroll into a game world and hang out over coffee...this addiction thing really needs to be discussed, pronto! wink (or, we could just discuss the next game we're gonna buy. LOL)

thanks PolloDiablo! SO glad I'm not alone! And in listing my games I forgot to mention the various demos, the Nintendo DS games, the GBA games, and the Playstation 1 and 2 games I have hanging around. I think we both have issues, but only in a good way. lol wink

PS I noticed you mentioned Glass Rose. I'd heard that was only coming out in Japanese...did they go ahead and make an English version? I would LOVE to play that game someday if they did! smile

Catsmom---You're normal and we're just nuts, that's all. LOL No but seriously, I've been going to school part time and not working so I've had lots of free time recently. When I was working full time AND going to school I don't think I even looked at a game for months. (Guess I'm making up for lost time. lol)

Cat, staring at her piles of games and feeling secure knowing she isn't alone happydance

Yes, there is an English version for Glass Rose, but I'm afraid it's PAL only so you can only play it on a European PlayStation...

Cat, I'm curious as to how many you have stowed away. I had 6 huge boxes full of games in my basement, there was about 2000 of them. I sold alot of them, I still have alot too. I was going through some and found the very first Leisure Suit Larry game, that I bought when it first came out. I don't want to think about how long ago that was. wave
