Stellar, I am not trolling but I am trying to figure out what you mean exactly when you say, "I actually play games." Are you referring to other games than Dead Island?I assume the majority of us that comment do indeed play the games we buy. 

 

 

 

The majority of people that hoard on here have admitted to purchasing way more than they ever intend to play.

What plus said. Most people on here openly say "Ill buy this to throw in the backlog and Ill never get to it." And if its not that than the other CAGs buy games just to flip. I feel like few people actually play most of the games they buy here. 

 

Not hating on anyone though.

Out of curiosity what would a good zombie apocalypse game look like? Between Dead Island, Dead Rising, Left 4 Dead, Resident Evil, Killing Floor, Yakuza Dead Souls, State of Decay, The Walking Dead, Lollipop Chainsaw, etc. I'd say there are handfuls of good zombie apocalypse games.

You didn't ask me but since I share the same sentiment I'll answer. In none of those games can you build barricades, scavenge supplies, and work with other survivors to eke out an existence. All of these games - like most games - ask you to kill everything, and the enemies in these games just happen to be zombies. That doesn't make a zombie game IMO. I give Walking Dead and Yakuza Dead Souls a pass because at least they had phenomenal zombie storylines. The other games are just like "It's a zombie apocalypse, kill everything." If there really was a zombie apocalypse, that is the last thing you should try to do.

The beginning of Dead Island is about as good as it gets as far as zombie games go. You wake up in a shack, there are a bunch of zombies outside and half a dozen survivors inside with you. One of the survivors is outside to fend off the zombies while the others do all of jackshit, so it's up to you to help the guy outside fend off the horde. That's what would happen in a real zombie scenario.

... Did you even SEE State of Decay on that list??? Literally what you described is the exact scenario of the game.

Yeah it fits the bill on paper but it's marred by technical issues. Maybe when I have more time I'll give it another go. Actually, a lot of these games are rough and unpolished - it's like the developers put in the minimum work to cash in on the zombie fad. Resident Evil is probably the one with the best production values, and even that series has been taking a pounding recently.

The original is not included. I never really understood why they left out Diablo 1 from this collection.

It used to include the original.  At some point a few years back, they removed it.  I have a version that had it which I got from GameStop back then.

Maybe they didn't want to include the game itself and leave out the Hellfire expansion (which was created by a 3rd part developer)? Silly reason, but that's all I got.

I still have my originals, so I never considered the battle chest.

Which begs the question, why buy these games if you're not going to play them? If I'm not with my gf or at work I'm playing games. As a matter of fact that's all I've done for the past 30 years. Don't buy games I'm not going to play, rather spend the money on something else that would be useful in life. Like a TV or a laptop.

Stopped by my Best Buy today, they really only had very recent PC games. I thought about just leaving but I decided to ask if they had it in stock, they looked it up and said they could get it shipped to my house with free shipping. I said sure but they passed me off to another girl who said the shipping would be $1.99, but then the original girl came back and said, no the shipping is free, and insisted on it, as if she knew I'd walk out if it wasn't. So they adjusted my shipping to a penny and sent me on my way. Yeah my victory was only $1.99, but pretty satisfied with customer service, and it satisfied my inner CAG.

Its used price is $24.99, so it's probably not much more than $5, if that.

Knowingly buying a game that you don't intend to play is pretty stupid. Its as stupid as buying clothes you wont wear or music you wont listen to (or am I the only one that pays for music?).

I developed a backlog of 50+ but I realized it and diagnosed the problem.

I was buying cheap (but good) games because the THOUGHT of sitting back and relaxing while playing it made me feel good. The IDEA that I will have free time to enjoy it made me want to buy the games.

Unfortunately in life you rarely have enough time to do the things you want, so the only benefit I got from many of those games was just the brief feeling that I WILL eventually play the games.


Ive had to admit to myself that games like dragon age 2, DA origins, far cry 2 (might as well play 3 now), enslaved, crysis 2 will probably never be played.

To make up for my previous stupidity I am probably gonna wait 2-3 years before I buy a ps4
