I’m not sure I can really consider myself a ‘gamer’. I play video games a lot, that’s not in question. In fact, I probably play them too much. The part that makes me question my gamer-ness is my unwillingness to try new games. I get stuck. I played Total Annihilation (Gamespot’s Game of the year 1997) as my game of choice until I started playing World of Warcraft in 2005. I got stuck on WoW for much longer than I’d like to admit and then Supreme Commander came along and I’ve been playing that ever since I found it. I play other games, sure (Company of Heroes Online and C&C Red Alert 2 etc etc), but not for long, and I even when I do, my heart is always soon back on one of my old standbys. Because of this, I’m not often tempted by new releases. A game generally needs to be out for a while before I’ll hear about it and try it. That’s why it seems so strange that I’m excited about the new Star Wars themed MMO from BioWare.
