Waiting for BF4

So, here we are waiting anxiously for Battlefield 4 to release in 2 1/2 months.  Around this time, I am typically in need of a distraction.  I played a lot of Battlefield 3 over the past few months in anticipation of BF4, but I don't want to burn myself out, so I am going through my game library and getting in some play time on some of the games I have neglected.  I also find myself tempted to try some new games I do not yet have.  I typically do this before a big release; I looked back at my Steam history and found that in the months before Battlefield 3 is the last time I managed to do a little catch-up on my library.

So, what do I have on hand to distract myself?

  • Civilization V - I really enjoy Civ, especially because it is something I can just pick up and play a little at a time, and I can also play it with just one hand while rocking my daughter to sleep.  I have not yet purchased/tried the Brave New World expansion.
  • Saints Row the Third - Goofy mayhem is simply fun.  Nothing more to it.
  • The Walking Dead - I love the series, and this game tells a good story.  I am late getting into this because I waited to get it cheap on the Steam Summer Sale.
  • Amnesia The Dark Descent - If you like horror, this one is seriously awesome.  I definitely recommend checking it out.  Watch this video to get a taste.  :D

There are a couple that are tempting my wallet.
  • Payday 2 - It seems a lot of people are really loving this one, so I am tempted to get on the hype train. Who doesn't want to rob a bank without [real] repercussions?
  • Saints Row IV - I am enjoying the Third, so why not consider getting IV?  It releases next week.  If you pre-order on Amazon right now, you can get $10 credit and the Commander in Chief DLC pack.
What are you playing to pass the time and ease the excitement?
