First, I don't play multyplayer, making most COD, and some other games where the solo-campain is more of a nice bonus, pretty pointless to me.
Second, I live in germany, making it quite difficult to get an uncut version at an reasonable price, i. e. under €70 - a sum I am definitely not willing to pay for a game containing less then 50% worth for me.
As for the other three: why bother the eye-bleeding as long as my thumbs don't fall of? Go, Dovahkiin!
I'm telling you! Stop buying the newest games! Go get something old, like Jurassic Park Operation Genesis, or Empires: Dawn of the Modern World, or Supreme Commander. (not that old, but still pre 2010)
I'm still in the midst of playing Dark Souls, MW3, Ico/SotC, and Shadows of the Damned (which was on my backlog of games). That much is hard enough to handle as is, but I'm still dying to pick up Arkham City, the new Assassins' Creed, Skyrim, and Uncharted 3. Not sure where I'll find the free time to really sit and enjoy playing through each of them though.
It's fucking retarded that I had all the time in the world to play new and old games when I was unemployed, but couldn't afford to keep up with new games. But now that I can justify the expense, it's that much harder to find the time and energy (after an eleven hour work day) to play through them.
I was very glad I got Arkham Lockdown and Not On The Map 3 (Uncharted 3) out of the way before Skyroam came out. I haven't played a game where I could accomplish several things in as many hours and still not be any closer to finishing it since Daggerfall!
