The Road To Hell Sure Isn't Paved With Samuel Johnson

Well, so much for my resolve to try and come up with a new post daily. I just don't do enough, it seems. Or maybe it's that I do too much, and didn't have time. Yeah, that sounds better. At least I came back and wrote another post while actually genuinely wanting to. That right there is pretty impressive, given my track record with starting things and losing interest part way through.

All you have to do is take a look at my catalogue of unfinished games. Everything from every PS1 Final Fantasy game (that's 7, 8 and 9) to Test Drive Unlimited to Theme Hospital to Solitaire - I just always lose interest. It gets too hard, or too boring, or too complicated, or I run out of time. In fact, I think the only game I've actually finished so far is Call of Duty 2. And I've only done that on Easy - I know friends who have beaten it on Veteran.

I might turn things around this summer, though. I've only just started FF8 (if you can call 7 hours of effort 'just started'), so who knows? Maybe I'll get somewhere with that. And I'm almost on the last campaign in Halo - how much harder can it get? So there it is, my 2007 Summer Good Intention - to actually finish more than one game. I've certainly got the time.
