Gaming’s Biggest Enemy Isn’t Cost, It’s Time
Batman has The Joker, homosexuals have Catholics, and gaming has time. Three things in common with all of these are, they’re all enemies. The Joker, Catholics and time are all things which actively try to stop and limit something else.
Over the recent weeks, I have come to realise that time is the enemy. The last game I got to play was BioShock over Easter. That was it. I haven’t even been able to play something casual, except for the few odd games of Rummikub on Games Centre.

Looking back, we can probably all think a time when playing games just was not possible. Imminent threat of exams, tests and “real life”.
Now, I am usually the last one to preach about playing games. Hell, most of the people at eGamer don’t even think I do this. I do, I just don’t talk about it as much. And that’s the strange thing, the fact that I haven’t been able to play has made me miss it more than when I don’t want to play.
Time is the enemy. And unfortunately it’s stronger than The Joker. It’s almost always guaranteed to win if we slip up.
As gamers, we need to overcome the enemy, because we’re used to doing that.
By the end of this weekend I will play something. I will.
