I've already played a lot of games this year, and we're barely 3 weeks in. Nevermind the amount of stuff I've carried over from 2019.
But, as I've gotten older, I've started realising how precious my time is, so I can quite easily "drop" a game at the slightest provocation. Consider last year:
Borderlands 3- I dropped it at 5 hours cause it did NOTHING for me. The humor was purile, and I absolutely LOATHED Claptrap. It was just a stupid character.
Cadence of Hyrule- I dropped it after THIRTY MINUTES cause it was too hard! The only rhythm games I've played are Elite Beat and Gitaroo man, so Necrodancer was really tough. I've since picked it back up, and started really enjoying it. I've just beat the Wizroboe boss, and I'm eager to play more
Pokemon Shield- I lasted 60 minutes and haven't picked it up again. I'm sure I'll like it, but...there's ZERO desire to pick it back up.
Fire Emblem: 3H- I did two hour long sessions. I did the first real fight with the bandits, and just couldn't be arsed picking it back up. Again, I'm certain I'll enjoy it, but....I dunno.
When do you guys "call" a game? What tips your over the edge? I think the fact that every game tries to convert you to spending time with that game, and ONLY that game is really worrying for me. It feels like any modern game I've played wants you to have played for years, and dedicate your life to it, with a weird sort of fanaticism. I think the whole "Games as live services" has really turned me off modern gaming. I'll go play something like Symphony of the Night, and have an absolute BLAST with it.
