Comment on No Commitment, No Attachment by MarkBrad/Orb505 Tue, 12 Mar 2019 16:11:39 +0000 Not really. In fact I often through myself so deep into a game I burn out of it too quickly and get fed up. Flight simulators are the exception. I had to forcibly stop playing MS flightsim for 5 years as it took over. I’m now back into X Plane and buying cheap Chinese electronics to build my own panel

Comment on No Commitment, No Attachment by Telwyn Tue, 12 Mar 2019 15:04:52 +0000 It has definitely been me over the last few years as well. Playing various MMOs for varying periods of time but never really settling into any. Part of that is social pressure, I prioritise gaming with friends and family over anything I do for myself and hence feel uncomfortable ‘committing’ to properly integrate into a guild or whatever in any game I’m not playing alongside said friends/family. That’s hurt my ability to explore the depths possible in MMO gaming, though equally it probably makes me a better friend/relative because I’m not ignoring others to play “the one game”.

Quite the condrary as I’d love to go all in on, say, Everquest 2 and get loads more grouping experience, but I never feel the time is right to commit in that way.

When I was on consoles I was pretty good at picking a game, playing it to the end, and moving on (tho just the fact that most of the games I played there HAD an end, helped). Now I’m on the PC I feel like I’m trying to juggle about 10 games and not really connecting with any of them.
