Are you having fun?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Are you having fun?

Playing CoD now, and been having fun smashing crappy players all night.  Most days though its just an endless grind.    The most fun i've ever had playing online was Resistance2 Co-op mode with friends and CoD4 when it came out.  CoD4 was amazing the first time i played it.  Made it to 54th in kills before the constant online problems the game was having drove me away, if no problems i could have been top 10 no problem :(

@Jdevil3, thanks! At MrKhan, I'm just starting NMH2 for the first time!

This is so true, sometimes I just play games for the sake of playing games, even if they are terrible. I don't currently have the time or the money to buy and play games either.

From now on, I will only play the games that I really want to play or I won't play games at all, simple as that.

I haven't really played a game other than the occasional COD4 online session so far this year. I completed Crysis 2 which was alright I guess and I also completed Tales of Vesperia, but that was months ago.

I have ordered the Tomb Raider Trilogy however, now that is a game I WANT to play!

When I'm waiting for new games to come out I will play older and much cheaper games, maybe re-discover some PS1 / DC / PS2 / GC games.

A lot of games have felt like that to me. Which is why I haven't bought many recently. The only games I plan to buy this year for the same reason are inFamous 2, Dark Souls and Twisted Metal. Those are the only three I feel i'll be playing because i'm enjoying them. Not because I have to finish them.

I'm sure everybody is having fun (or at least I hope they are). 

I grabbed a game that was technically impressive a couple of months ago.  I won't name the game.  Anyway, after playing it for about three hours, I realized that even though it looked good and was a key weapon in internet arguments, the game sucked hard.  It just wasn't fun at all.  I traded it in.

It's easy to get caught up in "Console Wars", bragging rights, graphics comparisons, etc.  If the game isn't fun, none of that stuff matters.  Wii gamers, Kinect gamers, PSN gamers, XBL gamers, etc. have all figured this out.  "Technically impressive" does not equal "Good".  Keep having your brand fun, people.  It's the only thing that matters.


Not gonna say but I think I have a decent guess as to what game you're talking about. I was pretty excited for it but passed after playing the beta and demo extensively. These days if I feel that the game may be a chore in any way, especially if it's in gameplay, I don't take the risk. I can do a lot with 64$.

Honestly are you having Fun playing games right now?

Because what got me thinking when recollecting my memories of playing online shooters over the past years is i barely had any fun over that period of time and that it was mainly fustrating grind full of rage quits. Also that when you are doing something over and over you may get into an phase of just playing games for the sake of playing games, you really get no statifisfaction or joy or entertainment from playing them you just progress though the game. 

I say its very interesting topic because there are many things in life you just get bored of, video games are no exception. But we do have the luxary of having multiple types of games and are able to swtich between vareity with ease and recapture the fun and joy from games once more. 


My Kindle has completely replaced my PSP.

When I play the PS3 I always get that nagging feeling that I could be doing something more productive. These day I probably spend more time reading video game news than playing video games.

I think I know what game you are on about, in fact, there are TWO games which match your description that I bought recently. As terrible as the game was though, the fact that it was a technical achievement makes you want to play through the game just to see the graphics, even if the gameplay is awful.

It could be worse, it could be a terrible game AND ugly as hell.

What's a Kindle? I know I could have just googled it and hidden my ignorance but please just tell me.

This used to happen to me too, mainly because I leave both the Wii and DS at home for my bros to play while I'm at college. But that's about to change as I just got a personal DSi(bros can keep the DSlite, bwahaha!) and I'm at home now so I've started NMH2 and Metroid OM.
