I'm not a very monogamous person. In real life and in video game life. I like to do and try everything I can and some would say that's my biggest character flaw. I on the other hand, love that I jump back and forth from experience to experience. But, I'm starting to realize that it's getting a little taxing on my free time.
With all of these great games coming out (and my backlog that's just getting bigger and bigger) I can't seem to sit down with one game and take it out to nice dinner. It's kind of like one of those episodes of Sitcom on Television where that one character tries to go on multiple dates in the same night. You know what I'm talking about right?
It's hard for me to stick to just one game and unfortunately that's my nature. Here's a short list of games that I've been jumping back and forth from for the past couple of days.

The Division

My nights usually start with me playing a little bit of The Division. I play this game for a couple of hours. And I always feel like time isn't on my side when I have this game in the tray. It's not because of the story or anything like that, it's mostly because my brother has been playing this game non-stop and I've been trying to catch up with him so we can play together without one of us being under/over leveled. Either way though, I spend an hour or two with this cutie until I move on to the next game which is...

Fallout 4

And of course it's Fallout 4. Ever since I got introduced to the series I fell in love with it. There's nothing like exploring the wasteland and, well, doing what I do since I've beaten the game which is farming. Yeah, you read that right. Every time I turn this game on I just run between settlements and try to make them nicer and all farmland-y. It's a weird way to relieve some stress but there's nothing like looking at a field of cornstalks or mutfruit trees and smiling. I'm glad to know that all of my digital settlements are fat and happy with food and fresh water. I usually spend 90 minutes doing this.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

And after that I try to play some MGSV. It's one of the games I've been looking forward to ever since it was announced. But it's always at the tail end of my night sessions, so I don't really spend a lot of time with it. I feel absolutely horrible about it because I've only heard great things and I've somehow not gotten the game spoiled for myself. If I do play the game, I only do for about like 30 minutes before moving towards the bed. The only way I'll ever get around to really spending time with this game is if I somehow find a job that pays me a ton for about 3 hours a day and then the rest of my time could be spent playing this game. One day, Metal Gear, one day...
Do you guys have trouble staying faithful to one video game? Let me know in the comments. Especially if you don't have trouble staying faithful... I need some tips, guys. Seriously.

I am definitely a monogamous gamer. I like to finish up something before I start the next. Although, there are exceptions... I don't think I'll be done with Tales of Xillia before FF15 comes out, (or at least I'm hoping it comes out that soon!). I have a hard time finding games that I like to play. I'm very picky with my Japanese RPGs. But I'm lucky enough to be able to watch my boyfriend play all the games I don't wanna play, but wanna see the story... like MGS V: The Phantom Pain. It's such a good game, and I wish I could play it, without getting too frustrated! But I love watching him play. My boyfriend plays many games at once. He complains about forgetting how to play each one when he switches. Lol. Lately, he has been stuck on MGS V, though.
interesting thought. personally, I really only play one major title at a time. I play a lot of narrative-heavy single player games, so they can be emotionally draining after a while. though, I also play League of Legends all the time, so I guess at any point I'm juggling two games, though league is like a background game. I've been focused on Bloodborne for like a month now and I expect to be stuck on that for at least another month. Then I'll probably move on to one of the games I have waiting on the shelf.
@TurtleyTurtles yes! They are both pretty long but well worth it! I'm still in the beginning of the 2nd. I played through the 1st one about 4 times and every time it was great! Need aid, I got you!
I think this depends on the type of games we are talking about. while the division is a single/coop game it's not heavy in story or intense immersive action. same with fall out. @InVinsybll however like those games it best to play one at a time for the full experience rather then playing multiple and having it get diluted. sadly this just happen to me but because of release dates and new hardware(pc upgrades and a new 4k tv). I'm at the end of final fantasy 10 remaster, end of tomb raider (pc), xenoblade chronicles x, half way twilight princess HD and I just bought the division to play with friends. But I know each single player game would be enjoyed straight through so I'll play each one for about a week straight.
like ass creed london edition, which I bought three months ago on sale and still have not opened.
