How we justify all that high-dollar hardware.

Discuss your "to play" list

Postposted on Mon Jun 13, 2011 2:52 pm

I'm still on track to build a nice new rig come September. Sandy-B (maybe Sandy-B-E), 16GB of RAM, $250-class GPU with plans to eventually go double, and now a 30" monitor (currently in possession). I've thought time and again of how I'd enjoy the irony of showing off all that new hardware here, with pictures of it playing Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe and Baldur's Gate 2.

Then I realized, I really have no "justifiable" business purchasing new games, what with all the other games I still have to play and/or finish. Not like that's ever stopped an enthusiast right?

So let's talk games you're looking forward to playing. I'm talking forthcoming games, new games AND old games, since like so many of you, I have favorite titles that keep drawing me back, not to mention a growing pile of games I haven't spent enough time with:

Am I looking forward to you, if I'm playing you now?:
    Mass Effect (playing now, want a playthrough to import for ME2)
    Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe (my perennial time sink)
    L.A. Noire
    Dragon Quest IX

I'll be back, because I can't quit you:
    Baldur's Gate
    Baldur's Gate 2
    Planescape Torment
    Mount & Blade / Warband
    Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri
    X-Com UFO Defense / Enemy Unknown
    X-Com TFTD

You've been waiting for so long:
    Dragon Age
    Mass Effect 2

The grass is always greener:
    Battlefield 3
    Mass Effect 3
    Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    Tribes Ascend (please let this be good)
    Ground Branch (will this ever see the light of day?)
    Jagged Alliance 2 - Back in Action


And let's not forget a few titles that wont be on PC (at least for me), but will eat my time none the less.
    Uncharted 3
    Assassin's Creed Revelations (I've come this far)
    Ace Combat: Assault Horizon

I'm sure there's several more I've forgotten :P
Sabina - i7-3930k | P9x79 Pro | PH-TC14PE w/ 2x TY-140 | 16GB DDR3-1600 1.25V | 2x Samsung 830 256GB | GTX680
