Yo. I saw someone joke about seeing Steam reviews where the user has played a game for 500 hours but doesn't recommend other people play it. Has anyone done something similar?
This might just be an issue with Steam reviews making people choose Yes or No. Or maybe they enjoy it but leave a negative review to highlight one problem they had. Either way I would have thought by the 300 hour mark you would know if you liked the game or not. Why do people suffer though hundreds of hours if they don't really enjoy it?
I guess the closest I have come to this is playing FFXIV. It's actually seems really well made with lots to see and do, but I hadn't played an MMO before and playing it taught me that I don't really enjoy that style of game But I still played about 120 hours or so because a bunch of friends were playing it regularly. At some point I just found myself running around in circles doing nothing at the Lavender Beds (one of the player housing areas) and I told myself that I was wasting my time. I then unsubscribed.
Do people who play games sometimes have a higher tolerance for being bored before realising that they're not enjoying themselves? Hopefully you have some insight into this or into the Steam reviews phenomenon.
