When I wanted to learn about the Unity game engine, I hoarded everything possible about it, as fast as I could get (out of pure curiosity and for fun). I read tons of tutorials, forums stuff, tested some Unity games, even read one book about development, tried some things on my own. I think all this happened in a very short time period (talking about weeks) while doing some other stuff.
This is the same when I get interested about some computer (or board) game. I read tons of reviews online, print some to read them offline. Check videos… all in a very short time period.
I’m like that: when I want to learn new things, I want to get tons of information and absorb everything possible as soon as possible.
The good side of course is that, when I’m really motivated to learn something new I can get the basics pretty quick. The bad side on the other hand…
Well, hmm. I think there’s no bad sides. Not when hoarding stays in a sensible level.
It’s good to be a hoarder.
Are you like this?
