Even just looking at games that are out now that I haven't played yet or are coming out only in the next couple months I'm really looking forward to:
Stranglehold (I told myself no more demos but stupidly tried this one and it was lots of fun -- damnit)
Call of Duty 4
Guitar Hero III
Now, given that I work 8+ hrs/day and put a good 10 hours a week into Gears, finding the time (much less the money) for all those games seems nearly impossible. I just sold off Madden and will probably sell off NCAA as I'm just not going to have time for them (and needed the money to put towards the others).
That's not counting the start of next year with Fallout 3, GTA4 and some good Wii games (Smash Bros, Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart Wii) finally hitting the table.
I honestly can't remember a time where there were ever this many games I desperately wanted to play coming out.
