The Daily Grind: Have you ever sat on a game before playing it?

I'll help you real soon, guys, but first I have to re-play a Sega Genesis game that I played years ago and only avoided beating because it has a sense of difficulty only describably as sadistic.
So The Secret World was on sale on Origin this week for $10. Since it's buy-to-play at this point, that's well within the realm of prices where I start nodding and saying that it's a good deal, and the next thing I knew, I had bought the game. And I installed it. And now I've... well... I don't know exactly. I'm not playing it yet, but there's no real reason not to. It's not as if I'm worried about wasting my free month or something.

But I bought it, and I own it, and now I'm just sitting on it.

Sometimes we buy MMOs knowing that we'll start playing them soon but not right now. I let Guild Wars 2 sit for a long while before I got in and started playing. So today the question is whether or not you've ever bought a game and then sat on it for a while before playing it? Including if you literally put the game box on a chair and parked there for a couple of hours, I suppose. Everyone has rituals.

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
