odd ? hell no, that’s a gamers perogative ! I buy games just to put them on the shelf. One of my most hotly anticipated title ever was Skies of Arcadia on the GC, which was delisted in Australia before it was ever in stores, so my wife hunted for ages and bought a copy on ebay for $110. What did I do with it ? Play for 2 hours and then go “ok, this is great. I’ll play it later” and moved onto other games.
Also odd is that I often “shelve” games that I pay top dollar for, while putting serious play time into games that I got for *cough* free. It’s a hoarder mentality I think. Well, that, or MGS4 just sucks. You decide.

I actually just got Vana’diel collection 2k8 myself… I haven´t played the game since CoP came out. Getting up to date on the new stuff will be a killer ;_;
I want to go to your connectercons and sandiegoes! No fair!

Aww…. You’re not going to be at Otakon this year? Though it wouldn’t surprise me if they discouraged drunken entertainment. ;P I remember the year I took a half-and-half bottle of gin and coke into the center. They were somewhat less than pleased, but I was really happy! ^_^
