I'd rather be playing......

Do you ever find yourself playing something you might be enjoying but, for whatever reason, you keep thinking about some other game? Right now I'm playing Sleeping Dogs but one of my friends keeps telling me how great Far Cry 3 is. Sleeping Dogs isn't bad - I just feel like I'd be having a better time playing FC3. The problem for me is that I don't have the money to drop 60 bones on games all the time. A select few for sure but I usually just rent with Gamefly or pick up a game when the price goes below 30 bucks or so. That leads me to wonder

What game are you currently playing? (Sleeping Dogs for me)

What game would you rather be playing? (Far Cry 3 for me)

Well I'm currently playing Darksiders to grab the final achievements and be done with it. While I do enjoy the game, I don't think I'd want to be playing anything else because I am so close to unlocking the final achievements.

But hey, let's play the game.

I would rather be playing Rage. I am still stuck at the beginning of the game and really want to see what the fuss was about.

This really only happens to me when I've been boosting for hours. I'll be boosting some shit multiplayer like Quantum Theory for example, and thinking "Man, I'd rather be playing Super Contra in coop".

Currently playing Mass Effect 3 again, but I'd rather be playing Metro: Last Light, and I would be, but THQ getting financial cancer delayed the shit out of it.

I'm currently playing Akai Katana and COD: Black Ops II Campaign

What I'd rather be playing is COD: Black Ops II Zombies DLC(don't have yet). Guess it wouldn't hurt to start Nier at some point either.
And as for non-360, I'd rather be playing Fire Emblem Awakening.

I only work on 1 game at a time because I'm more productive that way in terms of getting it completed faster. However, when it gets to the stage of where it's a grind to finish up the last few achievements, I start thinking about what game I will play next and then I'll get in the mood of wanting to play it. It then starts leaving me unmotivated to finish the current game I'd be playing.

I had just started my second playthrough for Borderlands. It's a good game n all but I don't like playing through a game more than once in quick succession. So I went and played some Halo 4, going to keep playing until I get bored of MP then I'll probably go back and finish Borderlands.

Every time I see something zombie related or play something zombie related I want to own this already, a part of me knows it's going to be slightly trashy but my Walking Dead fangirl insists it must be owned and played!

Most of the time, I find myself playing something purely for achievements that might be kind of fun (I don't play games I dislike for any reason), but I'd rather be playing something online with my friends (like Battlefield or Halo).

Agreed I've played about an hour and didn't get into it right away - really want to stick it out though.

Generally I wanna play Borderlands / Skyrim but fear for my sleep levels / social life...

Boosting Pro Evo 6 online achievements. Boring as hell.

Rather be playing Dishonored on my High Chaos run now. Or Finish off Lego Star Wars 3. Anything than the boring boosting. Things we do to get 1000g eh.

Red face

I get that feeling all the time when playing games. Lately i have been playing a lot of Mortal Kombat, it has changed so much from when i used to play and there were just like 5 characters to choose from lol. Typically my mind will wander after a while though, and i will just pop in a new game.

Sometimes i just need a shooter fix, and other times i might be in a mood for a strategy game. But i always have a problem with switching out games and being indecisive. Although when i started xbox all i used to play was halo2, then halo3 when 360 came out. Now i have a pretty broad horizon of games, i enjoy playing all different genres.

Right now playing Red Dead Redemption

Am loving it but sometimes get the urge I'd rather be knifing people in Battlefield 3 than skinning animals.

I'm really bad for this lately. I can never decide on a game to play and even when I do after 10-15 mins I decide I want to play something else.
I'm playing Halo 4 right now but I think I'd rather be playing Modern Warfare 3. I know I'll have thaton for a bit then decide to play Rock Band 3 or something though.

Currently playing Fifa 11 to knock out this damn last achivement.

I'd much rather be playing Gears, Black Ops 2 (which is untouched since xmas), Bioshock, Fallout 3/NV, Left 4 Dead 2. Pretty much anything else.

Whenever I play Battlefield 3, I'd much rather be playing Call of Duty. Don't get me wrong, Battlefield 3 is a great game. It's just that I'm more used to the faster pace of the CoD series. That, and the vehicle controls in BF3 aren't very easy for me

This is the only answer that makes sense unless you'd rather be playing a game that hasn't released yet. If you hate the game you're playing, stop.

I've been playing Black Ops 2, because I play COD, but I can't stop thinking about Far Cry 3. I rented it twice and loved it both times, and now it's like a girl I had a fling with, and I can't manage to break up with my current lover to be with her.

I certainly don't HATE the game I'm playing right now - definitely wouldn't be playing it if I did - It's just that a lot of the time I'd rather be playing something else but for some reason I'm not be it lack of money, time or just plain too damn lazy to switch the disc . Sadly that happens to me pretty often.
