Finding the Time

Rachel Mii Double JumpHappy Thursday!

Lately, I’ve been struggling to find the time to actually play video games.

Does anyone else have this problem?

To be honest, I think I’ve been playing more video games than I used to because I have this blog as an excuse to play them. It’s like I’m doing research, I’m “working.”

Overall, though, it’s pretty hard to find the time to play games when you’re focused on trying to write a couple of novels, you’re running two blogs, and you work three jobs. The days are limited, the hours are short.

This is partly why there haven’t been that many game reviews on the blog lately. Between my schedule and Kris’s, our gameplay has been slow-going.

I wish I could at least get through one game a week. Or two weeks, depending on how long and in-depth the game is. I want to enjoy the games, not rush through them.

It’s times like these that I wish I could play the Song of Time and play all the video games I want.

How do you find the time to fit video games into your schedule?

  1. I feel the same way. I have two jobs and I am studying towards a masters degree, so it is definitely not easy to find the time to play games. I always try to be as productive as possible with the free time I have. That means no lazying around. I guess that’s what I do to find the time to play games; I don’t let things pile up.

  2. When I was at university I was struggling to find time to play games, which was weird because I’d never struggled at this before, so I started doing this thing where I played for an hour between 4pm and 5pm every weekday. The excuse was that I would use this play time to wind down between lectures and my evening studies, but as well as that it just gave my hobby a space in my life again. Weirdly, once I started doing this, I found I was finishing more games than ever!
