I’ve recently noticed that I tend not to finish games. Several RPGs I play have characters eagerly waiting to tackle an apocalyptic final boss, I’m being sluggish about completing the story in Breath of the Wild, etc. This habit, for me, is unique to games: I don’t leave books unread, I don’t stop watching movies or TV shows before the end, but I can’t bring myself to end the experience of playing through a game.
Part of it is definitely that I play a lot of RPGs, and no matter how “replayable” they theoretically are I don’t have the time to replay games of that length. So my tendency to not finish games might be related to the knowledge that once I finish it I probably won’t come back to it for a long time.
Do you also have problems completing games? Or other media?
