The past cou­ple of days have been inter­est­ing. I have, due to weather and other cir­cum­stances, had a ISP out­age since Tues­day. It was finally restored late today, but it also gave me glimpse into a world I have for­got­ten, offline gam­ing. Ever since wire­less con­nec­tiv­ity was avail­able for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii; my con­soles have always been online and have never been off. I have tried in the past two weeks to dive into my back­log before the avalanche of new titles and con­soles hit in just a few short months. Since not hav­ing an inter­net con­nec­tion this past week I was able to dive deep into my back­log and clear some games I started, yet never fin­ished. Over the last two weeks I have been able to com­plete the following:

 

Don­key Kong Coun­try Returns (Wii)

Super Mario Galaxy (90 out of 120 stars when com­pleted) (Wii)

Shadow of the Colos­sus HD (PS3)

God of War 2 HD (from the Saga col­lec­tion) (PS3)

God of War 3 (sec­ond play through) (PS3)

Heav­enly Sword (PS3)

Bay­o­netta (360)

Red Fac­tion Guer­rilla (360)

The Bourne Con­spir­acy (360)

Wipe­out 2048 (Vita)

Over all that is not a shabby list to run through and four of those have been in the past cou­ple of days. Now if my inter­net con­nec­tion had been avail­able I don’t think I would have been able to get through that. I have a habit of turn­ing on my 360, wait­ing for my friends to get online and we typ­i­cally play Bat­tle­field 3, Gears of War 3, Halo 4, or some form of mul­ti­player title. Being dis­con­nected from that realm that has tak­ing gam­ing to a higher place, felt good, almost like a get­ting back to basics feel. I may do this on a reg­u­lar basis, cut my con­nec­tion to the online world and give my back­log some love it des­per­ately needs. As much as I enjoy gam­ing with friends and the ban­ter that goes along with the social aspect, I really enjoyed the time with just myself and the game. I also sadly noticed my 360 ran worlds bet­ter being offline than online, there was a major boost in per­for­mance as far as select­ing stor­age devices and view­ing achieve­ments. I am not sure if that is due to the lim­ited RAM and com­plex dash­board, or the stream­ing of ads in the ad space, but what­ever it was I wish I had the per­for­mance back. I will be gam­ing online with my friends tonight as the sig­nif­i­cant other leaves for a friend’s house and nor­mally Fri­day and Sat­ur­day nights are typ­i­cal Bat­tle­field nights, though dur­ing the day tomor­row and Sun­day could bring more hours to my ever grow­ing back­log. If you are like me and feel trapped by the online world of gam­ing, at times, unplug the box and rekin­dle the feel­ing of just you and the game. Maybe I’ll fire up my Jak and Dax­ter col­lec­tion this weekend.

Excel­lent Idea! All of us should take your advice and at times, unplug from the digital/online world and kick back and either play a game, lis­ten to music or read some­thing. It is a refresh­ing change of pace and puts things back into perspective!
