Steam Sale and Backlog of Games


Years ago, when I was in my 20s, I knew a man in my workplace. He's about 35 at that time and living alone. He's a good man and put in a lot of hours into his work. He claimed that he's a gamer although I have not seen him putting time into games. But he buy a lot of games. Each week, he'd grab something and would tell me what he bought. I questioned his wisdom and he shrugged it off, saying it's cheap and he'll get to play them one day. I thought he's just wasting money!

Fast forward to the present time. I have a job, a baby to take care, activities in my Buddhist Center and I really do not have time for gaming even though it is my passion. But yet, I caught myself buying games after games during Steam Holiday sales.. This year, I bought The Witcher Enhanced Edition, Assassin's Creed 2, Mass Effect 2, Just Cause 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction. These games should last me throughout 2011, I hope. Upon reflection, I am behaving like my old friend - buying games hoping for the rare chance of catching up on these backlogs.

I need help!

  1. I have read a book it's called 'Porn Trap'. Same as gamer, you are a result of an addictions. You need program to straighten you brain nerves and re-wired so you can be tempted again. Can be done but come with sacrifices. Now you know why media adverstisements are influential. They wired your brain. IPHONE or IPAD anyone?
