Subject: Re: [Audyssey] game cycle?


Hi Charles,
As a matter of fact that's almost exactly how I am. I'll play something like SoundRTS for a week or two, get burned out, play Chess or Uno, get burned out, and play something else. Eventually, the cycle will start over. It is actually difficult for a game to keep my attention for very long. Take Sryth for example. While I truely enjoy the game I go through spells where I play it almost every day, and then there will be a spell where I don't do anything with my character for a month. Then, one weekend I'll find myself board, login, and play actively for a week or so before growing board with it again. This so-called cycle is what makes it hard for me to complete a game like Jim's NFL Football game. I'll start out a season make it through 6 or 10 games and get board off my rear. Perhaps a month later I'll start playing and resume the season again losing my momentum and drive to make it to the Super Bowl. I've litterally had a game of football last a year before i made it to the Super Bowl, because even though I like the game it can't keep my attention for very long. I'll play a couple of games and not pick it up again for weeks . Although, I am pretty sure why this happens. The bottom line is there aren't very many accessible games that truly satisfies me. Before I lost my vision I was into games like Tomb Raider, Jedi Knight, the original Heroes Might and Magic, Mech Warrior, and various other games that were out in the mid 1990's. There are very few accessible games that really compare. Shades of Doom and GMA Tank Commander are the closest I can think of which is why I purchased both as soon as I could. I don't personally get the same entertainment or satisfaction out of playing Uno, Hearts, Aliens in the Outback, etc. The games are good in their own way, but not my cup of tea.
Smile.

Just curious if anyone else finds themselves doing this: You are in the mood to play a particular game. You haven't played it in a while, and you get caught up in it. You play the heck out of that game, but none other. After a time, you decide to play another game. You haven't played that one for a while, and you get caught up in it, ignoring all other games on your PC. Sort of a game cycle.
