Getting Bored And Walking Away Is How Most Games End For Me Now

Source : Getting Bored And Walking Away Is How Most Games End For Me Now

Last week, I realized I have a problem. I’d just finished browsing the Nintendo Switch’s entire eShop for a second time in search of a new game. That’s a weird thing to do, especially considering that I still haven’t finished Breath of the Wild. I should finish it, but I

Have you ever had a game where you thought, "Man, I'm just not feeling this anymore"?
Yes. Except it wasn't a game and more a games news outlet.
Good, you guys are getting closer to admitting that you don't actually like playing games.
God of War, Breath of the Wild, and the latest Mario
This is me when Smash Ultimate was announced while I was playing smash 4
All the time. This is the problem with huge games or games with no actual end.
Guilty 🙈
yeah because I'll be depressed
Si empiezas un juego, lo acabas. So vinagres
MGS5, Fallout 4, Doom, Splatoon 2 single player... uhh I'll probably think of more later smh.
Such an important topic for discussion.
GTAV. I still really want to finish it, but have given up on it twice now on 360 and PS4.
I’m mainly talking about this Kotaku piece. It starts with “finding something new to play on the eShop.” I don’t kn…

Well fuck off, and stop ruining it for the rest of us then.
so that explains it all 🤔
i liked this article better when it was a @aSpaceCadette tweet
Reading this article. Sounds like a major problem is getting so wrapped up in side content. By the time you go back…
While I think it's fine for there to be games that just kind of run until the illusion breaks (though it's not an e…

O jornagames passou da negação e da raiva, chegou na depressão, falta só a barganha e aceitação

Sounds like you need another job.
bonito ver o pessoal finalmente aceitando que nao gosta de videogame
hot take: concordo e me identifico demais com esse texto, eu sinto falta de me sentir mal por um jogo acabar
youre not 4chan enough to post this, fuck off
Getting bored of a game doesn't necessarily mean there's disinterest. I think a major factor here is that so many…
SO DON'T PLAY VIDEO GAMES FOR A LIVING ANYMORE
Yah, we know you don't like video games. We've been telling you this for half a decade.
I generally agree that open world games have this problem on the whole, but BotW definitely *has* an ending, and it…
Then stop boring yourself and quit writing about games. Someone else would probably love to have your job.

BotW can literally be finished any time you choose. Not sure I understand its inclusion here.

then get another job, dick head
I know a few people that play like this 😞
This is a good article and anyone whose reaction to this amounts to "lol casuals" didn't get the point.
I'm not alone!
do your job
Change "now" to "for the past 5 years" and "most games" to "all open world games" and it's like I wrote this...
Good article. While I do happily play a lot of games to completion, I also feel like there's no shame in simply sa…

Maybe because you're not a gamer or a fan, but rather a cancerous ideologue.
I actually agree to some extent on this one. I can't remember the last time a game was released that didn't feel li…
Not finishing Breath of the Wild? Because of a quest? Seriously? Get a grip. Yes, it's harder to play long game…
This is exactly how I feel about most video games these days.
he used to turn 360 + walk away but now
How does anyone take Kotaku serious at this point?
Then what are you doing writing about video games?
If your writers feel this way, it should be a blaring signal that it's time for a shake up. I'm not saying fire th…
That explains a lot.
rofl game journalists, man. game journalists.
Funny, that's how reading Kotaku articles ends for me now!
This is a genuine concern nowadays with some games choosing quantity over quality. How many times has this happened…
Then why are u a game journalist?
Definitely resonate with this. Great article from @Vahn16.

After reading this, I wouldn't trust Nathan Grayson to review any games.
It's missing the "At least i'm getting paid" part.
I have mixed feelings about long games. I prefer them shorter now but when I was a kid the longer the better. Today…
Yup. Especially with open-world games, but even with some linear ones, not too many hold my attention anymore. I ju…
Imagine being this disillusioned with such a cool job. Maybe if you dislike it so much get a different one.
"The Gamer's Guide", everybody!
I guess this translates to I'm old and don't have time to game anymore. RIP
I completely agree.
I wish I didn't actually have to agree but this can simply be interpreted as "games are shit now" which is true.…

I can't remember the last time I finished a game proper. Roll credits, thanks for playing and all they.

This is... Actually really sad?
it happens way too often to me, specially with open world games with average story

Couldn't agree with this more now, struggle to finish any games any more.
Puta texto foda.
Me too, but I blame myself and my attention span and not the games. *shrug*

Very good point!
I have this problem all too often

See kids? This is what happens when you don't git gud.
Can't you do us a favor and just keep walking? Just walk away from your computer and don't ever stop.
@seamoosepaddy This article nails it.

Going through this with BOTW now, wondering how in the world so many people said it was the best game last year.

Great piece - and a very interesting discussion in the comments.
Who else is afflicted by this? ME!

Stop playing Open World games. You clearly don't like them.
