At least that’s what I keep telling myself. In terms of new purchases September and October weren’t so bad, and November was OK, but December amounted to nothing short of an avalanche by my standards. All told, between a stay in Birmingham with its copious videogame retailers and an online import haul, December totaled a whopping 31 games across 6 different platforms, a G-Con lightgun, and 2 consoles (both replacements). Slice that up like a cake and that’s one unique slice of gaming for each and every single day in December. And that’s on top of an already swollen backlog of games. It’s nothing short of madness, is what I’m saying.
