I have well over 600 Xbox 360 games (~50/50 Retail/Live). I have never played the vast majority of them, and probably never will, because I can never decide what to play. (and because there isn't enough time in the world)

 

You really come to understand the true meaning of 'spoiled for choice', in this situation, even if it is self inflicted.

 

The real downside is, I've kinda ruined gaming for myself, because there is very rarely any anticipation, or sense of worth or value.

 

I know, boo ****ing hoo :rolleyes:

Feeling guilty about the sheer amount of natural resources you use as a first world citizen.

As an example, look up how many resources are necessary to manufacture all the electronic gizmos you own. Consider the poor working conditions for those producing your phone or laptop. It's staggering.

I really like this thread!

 

I was born and lived in a 1st world country until I was 28, then I moved to a 3rd world country and still live there very happy, but I recognize lots of the problems you talk about. Obviously being lucky that I'm still not poor like most people living here.

Having to choose between an iPhone and a high-end Android phone.

Could be a pro and use WP8 instead.

Having so many games on Steam that you end up not playing any because you can't decide what you want to play the most.

This.  

Having to determine wether to buy PS4 at launch or buy the PS4 + Vita bundle if it exists.

Having to choose between watching netflix (a service I pay for) or downloading games on steam (that I paid for) because my ISP has a 120gb limit.

Starting the water, getting in the shower, getting all wet and then realizing you're out of soap and a new bar is in the closet outside the bathroom.

Trying to figure out what time to have dinner, because you dont want the alchol buzz from a few beers after work, to be lost too early.

Oh gawd that's a big one. I'm semi-OCD when it comes to monitors to begin with.. Three monitors, one dead pixel on the far side, it sometimes feels like I can feel it mocking me, even when I'm not looking at that monitor.
