Gazing Upon Your Collection – How Do You Decide What To Play Or Read?

Have you found yourself standing in front of your game shelves staring at what you have amassed only to stare with a dumbfounded look on your face? Welcome to my world; the image to the left is only part of my modest collection of games. How do you strategize about what to play or read next?

  1. I have the same reaction when I stare at my DVD/Blu-ray collection looking for something to watch.

      The weirdest thing is staring mindlessly and then running options through your head.

    Mood mostly. But also interest, or if necessary, what I need to do.

      Do you find there are many situations where you must select a game out of necessity? I try to avoid these situations by purging myself of the games I do not like or enjoy.

        By that I meant two things: what do the other people also want to play, and secondly what do I need to read (being a writer) versus only what do I want to read?

        Sometimes I play what I want or choose, sometimes it’s the other guys who choose, and sometimes I read what I wish, and sometimes it’s what I need to read. (For research, or study, or so forth.)

        I understand those scenarios all to well. I do lots of reading for research on a whole host of topics as well.
