So I have been playing through Hollow Knight and I’m at the point where I could go to the final encounter if I wanted to. But I have been playing through all of the optional content instead because I know that if I “finish” the game and see credits, that will be a mental block in going back to the game. I found this to be the same with Sekiro and I tried to complete as much as I could before the final encounter. I only forego this rule for mainline Mario games, where they have post-credits content, that is content you aren’t able to see until you “finish” the game.
So my questions for y’all
- Do you continue to play a game post credits?
- Do you try to complete all content you can before doing whatever the final encounter is?
- Are there any games where you break your usual rules?
