:thought_balloon: Why?

“You should be playing games you enjoy. Just remember your pile when you start looking for something else to play, instead of purchasing another title. That’s really all this is for - to make sure you enjoy what you’re playing and getting rid of stuff that you aren’t.” - Me

:memo: Notes to Self

  • I should not buy DLC until I am ready to play it.
  • I stop playing open world games when I complete the main story.
