Mario is coming out tomorrow, and I have pre-ordered it (rare for me) digitally, so I know I will get my grubby hands on it in the morning. It is highly likely that will be my sole game until I complete it which, given my limited playing time these days, might take a while.
For the past month or so I have been playing Golf Story. I love it to bits. The story, the characters, the look, the way it plays, the whole caboodle. But I know that from tomorrow it is unlikely that I will pick it up again, and if I do I won’t be very good at it as I’ll need to practice again and get used to the controls.
I am on the last course. It is bloody hard. I want to finish this but I know I only have today to do it. I feel pressure, and I don’t like it. It’s completely self imposed, this is on me, but I feel I almost HAVE to finish this game. Complete the story (word even in the game’s title) so to speak.
Does anyone else put deadlines on when they have to finish a game? I haven’t done in the past and this is a pretty unique circumstance I guess (on the last level of a game the day before a big release come out).
Edit - I completed Golf Story with a few hours to spare. It wasn’t as fun as the rest of the game. though because of the deadline I had imposed I think I actually got a bigger kick out of finishing that last course than I otherwise might have done. So, torn.
