Do you ever get tired of games?
« on: December 12, 2014, 01:53:58 PM »
Do you ever get tired of all your games? Chris does. In his first post to the DQI blog he rambles about what happens when games stop being fun: http://destinyquestinfinite.com/?p=2443

"Do you ever get bored of your video game collection? I didn’t mean for it to happen, but every so often games stop being interesting. I’m trudging through the critically acclaimed Baldur’s Gate, perhaps the same way my characters do, clocking in the hours to meet my quota, using the time in between crossing long stretches of map to get up from my chair and refill the water filter in my kitchen...

"I think the reason games are getting old to me is familiarity. ...  I may not know how to beat *this* game, but I know how to beat this kind of game. I’ll probably have to find a hidden brick somewhere, or maybe find the right verb to match with the right noun, or maybe get the dumb AI to attack a chokehold.

"Maybe that’s secretly why I started working on DestinyQuest Infinite. If I’m bored of all games, at least a game that’s a book would be different."


Do you ever get bored with games? Are there any games that “break the mold” and remind you to love games?
