I generally don't buy unfinishable games myself, I prefer ones that have an ending.

Wait, you don't play racing, strategy or simulator games?

Racing games have a set amount of courses, don't they? And don't strategy games have a certain number of missions, too? I don't play much of them to know.

Yes, but those racing games have lots of cars for you to use, so there's always another car that may suit your driving style better or that works better on certain track. And strategy games don'y only have missions, they also have lots of different scenarios, sometimes even randomly generated, where you can play with every faction of the game.

Basically, those genres can last as much as you want them to last... and that's before we add multiplayer into the equation.

Well, I'm mainly a single-player guy, and I consider the game beaten when I finish the main section of it.

I don't do multiplayer either, but playing against the AI is not bad.

There are two good indicators for me:

First, when I find myself on Steam looking for new games.

Second, when I log into the game in question and just kind of stand there, trying to think of what I want to do next. That's when I realize that the game has become a comfortable habit more than an adventure.
