Life has recently forced me to play way fewer games than I'd like to. Life now is Wife, baby, puppy, enjoyable job, and new house, so I'm not complaining about that, mind you.
My gaming is pretty sporadic, sometimes (rarely) I sink tons of time into a game because I become obsessed and make time. More often, it takes me forever to get through a game, assuming there's an end (I've been playing Wind Waker redux since it came out, and will probably need another few months to finish it). Most often, I play something long enough to recognize I enjoy it, but don't have time to play it. Though my time allotment for playing games is sinusoidal, listening to Idle thumbs has been a DC offset (i.e. - I listen to it all the time). I've listened Before Horsebag (B.H.?). I bemoaned the sporadically updated death of the 'cast that eventually followed. I reveled in the promise brought about by the Kickstarter campaign, and have been overjoyed that the 'cast has since been more or less weekly.
I love the banter, often I could care less about the topic, but I appreciate that it is sometimes video games. Good games. Which are sometimes mainstream, but more often obscure. Either way, Idle Thumbs has proven a great platform for discovery. For instance, I never would have heard of Papers, Please, and I never would have played the Space Asshole game. Either way, I win in the end. And though I don't play games very often anymore, I still like winning.
