Weekends are for rest. They are also for recreation, or if you're the type of person who frequents this site, weekends are for gaming. You've already worked a long week, and provided The Boss doesn't call you in on Saturday (mine did
) you deserve a little time to let the mind be in a world other than the one that surrounds you. Now here is a question...What happens when gaming becomes your second job?
Has a game ever enslaved you. You put in time and fail to make any progress. You get stuck on that same level at that same spot. You've cleared everything but the final boss which requires nothing but grinding away to level up towards a distant victory. Maybe it got too hard, or boring. There is only so much you can do.Quit.
The loser's way out, but keeps you from wasting time. Time you could be using to be playing something better.Keep playing.
You're not made of weaksauce. Hard games are
hard. Deal with it.Get help.
An online tutorial might cover something you missed. Maybe there is a technique to help you reach your goal faster. Additionally, sidequests or performing special stunts might open up a new way of playing a previously completed title. Gamesaving grace
The #2 timesaving option. If it is only a matter of gold accumulation or leveling up why grind? Cheat codes might also give you what you need to get the job done faster and make it more exciting in the process. Don't overuse this one. The only person you're cheating is yourself.Break it.
The game had it coming. You made a purchase and you'll find your amusement somehow. If the game is lousy enough it will likely have no resale value, so you'll have to fuel your amusement with your imagination. Snapping a disc is simple and to the point, but inserting a cartridge into a toaster (highly NOT RECOMMENDED) will surely bring forth satisfaction and toxic fumes. Drink coasters and skeet shooting targets are other alternatives.
