Maybe you enjoyed the game but once you realised that you were nearing it's end, wanted to be over and done with it. Unfortunately, I can get like this with a lot of games no matter how much I liked them. I'm constantly looking forward to the "next thing."

The perfect example I could give for me recently would be Dragon Quest XI S. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the game. But, it took me roughly 56 hours to beat. Which is considered to be the average amount in order to beat the main story.

(For some strange reason, I never grew tired of Dragon Quest VII on the 3DS though. That's considered an even longer game too. Even though I beat it in the same amount of time from memory.

Death Stranding comes to mind. I like the world surrounding it when it comes to sci-fi but at the same time, I just wanted to be done and gone. I like it but it was time to move on from that game. It was a love/hate type of game.

Dragon Age: Inquisition also had it's problems. Like the game but man, it was getting to the point the gameplay was getting dull, I just tried to get that game out the way and never look back.

Alice: Madness Returns. I love this game, but it's a few hours too long for the amount of variety in the gameplay. I think I would have enjoyed the game a bit more if it was a little shorter, or had more boss fights.

Persona 5. I enjoyed it, but it was a long ass game to complete. Got a little bit fed up with the game towards the end, it felt like it was dragging on forever. Once I completed it I was I never touched it again. Think I spent about 90hrs.

@judaspete: That's a game that's been on my backlog for a while now. The PC game seems hard to find. I know they took it down from Steam so I'll be on the hunt for a physical copy eventually.

Yeah I've heard it's a long game. I've never played a Persona game myself.

Alice: The Madness Return is on EA Origin and EA owns that game. You won't find it on Steam, just on EA Origin .

@davillain-:

So were the rumors true about Death Stranding being mostly a walking simulator? Like, what's the ratio of walking to action like?

Oh ok, thanks for the heads-up.

If it's any consolation, American McGee agrees: he says he wishes he had time to tighten up the game and cut a bit of unnecessary content before shipping it.

Feeling that way with Sekiro a little. It's awesome yes but I started it in Oct and guess I'm two thirds through?

I tend to take fortnightly breaks, get through loads of the game over a weekend then repeat.

I never could love Dragon Age Inquisition. I just past the part where they call me inquisitor because I stopped a rift or something and now needs to make pack with a state or whatever. Havent been playing it for a while but Really want to get back to the game someday and find out what is going on.

That seems like the games I criticise. So enjoyed seems like a contradiction. I don't waver buyers remorse, if a game is proving to be unenjoyable I toss it aside like the garbage it is.

I love longevity in games, replay-value is very much one of my favorite things to do in enjoyable games. If I complete a game and stop it means the game either ended on a bad note/ or I wasn't really having a good time period.

I've sometimes been shocked how quickly games end but because I enjoyed them played through again. And similarly if it was mediocre. When credits roll I always evaluate if the time I invested was good.

It's what I seek in gaming. A good gaming experience.

So on that note Dragon Age: Inquisition is an excellent example of a terrible game. It was the last time I put up with not enjoying a game all the way to the end; and since then have followed a great time-evaluation-system that has helped me enjoy games better now than back then.

@speeny: I do highly recomend Alice. It's a solid old-school platformer with fantastic art direction. May go a bit too long, but I did enjoy it enough to finish the game.

@Black_Knight_00: Glad to hear American McGee and I are on the same page about the length :). Makes me hope even more he gets actually gets to make a sequel some day, however unlikely that may be.

He's crowdfunding one as we speak. Or rather, he's putting together a pitch to show to EA so he can license Alice, so he can crowdfund it. It's complicated, but the gist is that he's making a third one. Eventually.

Alien Isolation comes to mind... I loved the first 80% of that game, but it starts to drag towards the end. I couldn't finish it. But still a great game.

Sweet! I hope it works out.

I liked the Witcher 3 somewhat, but hated the combat and interface, I had to rush through it when I got halfway into it, the boredom was getting pretty bad.

I definitely enjoyed many parts of it, but i'd never play it again, it begins to get way too boring to ever go through that again. I hope their new game Cyberpunk isn't like this, but it seems like it'll have a ton of filler and may become pretty boring like Witcher 3 did.

@judaspete: You can follow his youtube channel and subscribe to his mailing list to stay up-to-date with the project. They do livestreams where they discuss concept art, game design and the like. Only be advised that this is a slooow process, so the game is not coming anytime soon.
