Have you ever been playing a game, and then all of a sudden, it just didn't appeal to you anymore? Just all of a sudden, this momentus feeling of boredom overwhelms you. Usually, this happens because one is at a level that is deemed bad or excessively long and tedious (looking at you, Water Temple). However, this is not the case with me. This happens with almost every single game that I play that deals with long game design. I have a terrible attention span, and get bored and frustrated at the simplest of things, not even just games. However, I will be focusing on games because as a gamer, I feel incentive to complete (or at least get past the first 15% of) a game. Yet, I constantly find myself playing a particular game, and then never playing it again for months, if not ever. This has been the case with every Zelda game, Mass Effect, Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Grand Theft Auto, Skyrim, Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Sly Cooper, and the list goes on. Games like Zelda and Ico are personal guilts of mine, because I feel as if these games deserve to be finished. My problem is that I just don't have the patience or determination once I reach a particular point. It's a very crippling issue that I desperately wish to get rid of. So here's what I have decided. I am going to pick a game and stick with it until the end. No matter what. My first game: Ico!
After over a year of not posting any reviews, I have finally come back, and what better way to start off than to review the launch game for the Wii U? Check out my review of Nintendo Land! http://www.gamespot.com/nintendo-land/user-reviews/810023/
Wow, I haven't posted on GameSpot since August. I just figured there wasn't much to say. I got a whole lot of new PS3 games since then, but as of 4 days ago, I have bought a Wii U Deluxe Edition! Currently, I only own Nintendo Land and Mario Kart 64 (using Club Nintendo coins). I love it to tears, and I cannot wait for Smash Bros, Pikmin 3, Wind Waker HD, new Zelda, Mario Kart U, and last but certainly not least (rather, most), Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate. This is going to be a great year for gaming!
This one is for Uncharted 2!
I own all Uncharted's, let's play online! :)
Finally got Skate 3's platinum! That 6 player trophy stood in my way for weeks. Very happy!
Oh my goodness, school has simply been way too overwhelming! The ISU's, the essays, the extracuriccular activities, and not to mention my water polo season (which is FINALLY done).
Even with all of that, I still managed to purchase some games, such as the ICO and Shadow of the Colossus Collection for PS3.
Even with all of that, I am still going to game on! Happy gaming, everyone!
It's a satisfying feeling, it's on Sly Cooper: The Thievius Raccoonus. :)
Up next is potentially Arkham Asylum and/or Skate 3.
I finally beat Uncharted 2 on Hard Mode. It felt so worth it to see that trophy icon flash before me. Next is crushing mode, which probably means I'll have to sell my sanity and well-being, but it's ok. TROPHIES.
