hah, yeah. I've got Red Dead Redemption to finish, FFVII to finish, Horizon, Ghost of Tsushima, and dozens of others...but here I am playing Bloodborne for the 15th time helping my friends through only to then go and play Dark Souls 1-3 on repeat. Trust me, I get it. Sometimes there's truly nothing like going back to the comfort of a favourite. honestly, I've beaten Dark Souls III and Bloodborne so many times and yet I'm fully prepared to start over on PS5. I know I don't have to, but I kinda want to! I just love playing those games.
The reason I'm not doing too well in FFVII remake is...honestly it's actually kinda hard (She says after talking about how frequently she plays Dark Souls and bloodborne). and this is just on normal mode! Mostly it doesn't mesh well with my 'play a bit, do something else' general mentality as of late. I write for a living, so I'll often do something like 'play Dark souls till I die or kill a boss. Write 1 paragraph for every death, 1000 words for every boss' or 'play Donkey Kong Country, beat a level, do a paragraph'. With FFVII...it's so engaging and so well made and the design philosophy demands hours of your time all at once. You can't cut up your play into bite sized chunks and move on like you can with so many other games. That's the main reason I haven't been playing it. and because I haven't been playing it, I have to relearn how the combat system works every time I return to it.
Love that game, though. Seriously, I know a lot of people are pissed for various reasons but I think it's brilliant. I got a warm fuzzy feeling deep inside every time I booted it up. I'm even using the Tifa Nibelheim PS4 theme right now with her on the water tower looking at the stars. Damn, we really are in a golden age of gaming.
Lol true. At some point you just gotta think.. I really should really stop buying new stuff and get around playing these. But eh.. I'll boot up Uncharted 2 or Max Payne 3 again xD
Ah I can see that would be an issue, RPG's like that aren't really jump in and out of play and require time and investment. But yeah, FFVII Remake is amazing, particularly the music.. My game of the generation thus far, and I haven't even completed it yet.
