Are you thr type of person who has to beat bosses that are optional to play/beat?

Nope. Being a child of the 80's, my goal is to beat the game as quickly and efficiently as possible. No cheating, no easy mode... but point A to point B until it's beaten.

If I really love the game, I'll go back to do the rest afterwards.

If it gives me a good reward (XP, loot, achievement) then yes, otherwise skip.



Depends on the game, depends on wether the trophy list is interesting, depends on my state of mind. I rarely feel compelled to do much of gaming anymore, It's more like I choose to do it.



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

Almost always! All the bosses, if there are in the game, total exploration, all the interesting loot, In Morrowind, for example, I'm member of every joinable guild, and my stronghold plus some rooms of the Temples, imperial forts and guilds, particularly of Mages and Fighters are full of my loot (I keep less stuff in Thieves guild and Morag Tong rooms, as they usually are less close to means of transport and/or offer less services, and often more difficult to reach too).

I don't have to, no.

But i will if its a game i love. Xenogears is a game i love. I don't remember that boss though, but i do remember that you can skip 4 sub bosses and go directly for the final boss, but he will be alot harder.

You're old item dealing rodent himself, Hammer.

Same here, the easiest I put it on is normal, and typically I go hard. Games don't really punish you for dying anymore outside a few exceptions.



Yes, if I don't kill the optional bosses how is the world in the game free from oppression?



If it's actually a good reward. But most of the time it's really not. I use to do optional stuff in games. But Zelda OOT and MM taught me side missions are time wasters. Just not really worth it. Even games with something that suppose to make things easier. Like this rare item has better stats. Only to find out it breaks faster. So it's really not better. The issue is diverted to another area.

The game that got me into doing this was Final Fantasy VI. You get two swords from optional bosses that let you attack 12 times with a single character. From then on it was this feeling of needing to do it so I don't miss out on anything. That and Tales of Symphonia that had the giant skeleton in the opening and I was like "Yeah, I gotta beat him".



Sure if it's not too hard
