I can't believe this is now available, and I am without a system to play it. Yes, I could buy a new system, and this is the killer app (no pun intended) to drive new console sales. It was what I was waiting for.
But right now, I have a self-imposed boycott on excessive spending, and unless someone pays me real soon to write about video games, I can't justify the expenditure, when debt reduction is my current goal.
I feel the need to post, because GTA has been the source the majority of traffic to my blog. And most of those posts were written back when San Andreas was released, and they still bring in the most traffic here. The game has pull.
But right now, economics is getting the best of me.
I said right now…for now.
There is a PS3 beckoning me. I hear it. I feel it. It comes to me in dreams. It haunts me. It taunts me. I sense a disturbance in The Force each time a “10” is given in a review somewhere.
Like any addict, I can find a way to justify the purchase, but for now my line is drawn in the sand. I'm not exactly sure how that line in the sand thing works, whether it's me who crosses it, or if I wait for something to cross it, or if it has something to do with the tides, but right now it means I'm not buying Grand Theft Auto IV in the immediate future.
I am a freaking masochist. Reading Kotaku's not helping.

Sorry to leave a unrelated comment. I could not find your contact info on your blog. You may remember your comment you left on my blog on my “can passion be taught” post on my blog. I have written up a concluding part3 integrating all the ideas including yours. Please stop by when you have the time.
Hello, I was commenting on the post you mentioned, but then left my computer for a few hours and found that someone else closed up my windows leaving my comment unsaved. I know enough to save these things in a text file, if I'm going to be away, I suppose I didn't think I'd be away that long. But I was reminded of the whole conversation while at the Blogworld Expo in Las Vegas last week, where a common theme was “passion”. I hope to review the conversation on your site, because there were many interesting comments, and I'd love to interject some of my own. And thank you for reaching out.
