Too many games!

Too many games!

It’s that time of year again. Well, actually, it’s not, which is the problem.

Traditionally, there’s slim pickings for new games around this time of year. The busiest times for releasing new titles (especially big titles) is normally around Christmas and often over Easter too, but the July-October period is like release death in the UK. Except this year.

As well having Bioshock released this week already, there’s fahsands more out between now and the end of November. Before the Christmas wallet killing fever even begins. I’ve just been having a look at Play’s release schedule which, although often inaccurate, does give you some idea of the sheer number of games on the way that I really need to buy. Like these:

Impossible Mission
Super Paper Mario
Battalion Wars 2
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles
Manhunt 2
Super Smash Bros Brawl
Super Mario Galaxy
Pokemon Battle Revolution
Harvest Moon
Metroid Prime 3
Table Tennis
Rayman Raving Rabbids 2
Geometry Wars Galaxies
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

Two Worlds
Eternal Sonata
Guitar Hero 3
Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground
The Simpsons
Assassin’s Creed
Mass Effect
Viva Pinata: Party Animals

Worms Open Warfare 2
Impossible Mission
Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland
Heroes of Mana
Drawn to Life
Jam Sessions
Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
Sonic Rush Adventure
Dragon Quest IX
Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground
One or more of the Megaman games
Ultimate MK3

Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz

And that’s just UK releases. God only knows how many more I’d add to that list if I included imports. And Xbox Live Arcade titles. And new stuff on the Wii’s Virtual Console. And games like Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga which I’ve not made up my mind about whether to get the 360 or the Wii version.
