i rarely watch movies. even when fully invested in a plot, i find it takes a concerted effort to pay attention and not alt tab to check discord for an hour and a half. and over the past few years, i’ve noticed it feels increasingly difficult to focus on a full album of music. if it’s over an hour long, forget about it.
but video game? i can lose several hours to pretty much any given video game without trying. i poured dozens of hours into starcraft 2 last summer and came away not sure if i even actually like starcraft 2. for some reason, video games are so much easier for me to just… focus on. and i don’t think i like feeling this way! i do truly like movies and long albums when i make it through, and would like to enjoy them more, but find it so so difficult to stay attentive.
does anyone else have anything similar? certain games or other media that you struggle to focus on, or the opposite? do you work around it? do i simply carry the curse of games?
