After my buying spree at the games shop I finally got around to looking at what I purchased. I do recall that among the list of "must haves" (now "do haves") I was recommended several titles by the guys in the store. Being a complete newbie yet wanting to be polite I didn't let my ignorance stop me from agreeing to buy a few games I had no idea what they were about. I am rather pleased I listened to the lads as everyone of them is a winner.
The only problem I have is time. These games are so complex and massive that they take an age to load from the disc and then you have to sit through a mini-blockbuster film as the intro sequence that last seemingly forever.
Still, I can think of far worse things to get through and it means I didn't get to play all the new games. By reckoning, I am only a third of the way through and hope to see the lot before the weekend is out.
