Deciding to buy a video game, as opposed to renting from GameFly or borrowing a game from a friend, is a big deal when you’re an adult who has to be mindful of what you spend your money on. Prioritizing paying next month’s rent is much more important than blowing your paycheck on that AAA title everyone is playing right now. When you do buy that video game you have to have, you’re hoping you’ll get your full money’s worth from the purchase and a good gaming experience. Does buying a video game necessarily give you an incentive to complete every single aspect a game offers you? It depends on how much you enjoy the game.
Completing a video game is no easy feat, especially when you have a ton of other games waiting for you to finish or start. It’s a typical dilemma for me. I have way too many games, probably more portable games than console, but the console ones are slowly catching up. I tend to get overwhelmed really easily when I’m trying to figure out what to play next. With so many choices, how does one just choose a game to play?
