... Play multiple games at a time? or just one?
I personally play one game at a time. If I played another game, I might like that more and forget about the old game.
Also, I forget the story.

How about you?

One game at a time. However, if it's a game which I play in short bursts (racing games etc) I would switch a little here and there.

I'm similar - I'll play one game for a short while, then play another next time... although sometimes I may play fa single game for a while (until I get bored with it) - then it's back to the old system of 'a little bit here...a little bit there'

Right now I am only playing the Phoenix Wright games. Currently working my way through Justice for All. I wish a patch for Soul Silver would come as I will be dedicating a large amount of time to that agme.

I have more than the attention span of a goldfish, I can cope with multiple games/storylines in flight at once (often switching to another game/activity helps clear the mind for puzzle-solving in the original)

If it's a really good game I'll play only it until I get stuck (I only go to walkthroughs when I get stuck or want to make sure I didn't miss something optional), but most of the time I work through multiple games at a time.

This way I don't get bored about aspects of them (such as repetitive battles) nearly as quickly, I end up enjoying it a bit more than if I had played through it all in one shot.

This can backfire, though. If I come back too much later I may totally suck at the battle system, or I may be lost and not know where to go, unless the game has one of those journal-type systems to let you know of your progress and such. I vowed that if I ever made an RPG or general type of game requiring learning/progress, I'd stick a journal system in there, 'cause I really hate coming back to a game, and thinking I might as well start back from the beginning.
