I have left various games unfinished over the years, as others come on the scene or I just lose interest. However last night I had a situation that is pretty rare to me, in that I got to a point in a game and knew immediately that I was done with it. Game in question was Shantae: Half Genie Hero on my Switch. I have got about halfway through, and repeated early levels to toughen up my character and improve damage, but I have hit a series of levels where it was instadeath and you have to restart the entire level/large section, or two falls and the same thing happens. After spending an hour on the boss of the third level a previous evening, a spent another hour last night no getting further and I got to a certain point, died and went “You know what, I like the way this game looks and part of me wants to see further levels, but I’m done, this is not worth the hassle”.
Probably on me for not being good enough at platformers, but it is pretty rare for me to switch an uncompleted game off and know at that point I am not going back to it again.
Anyone else have games where they can pinpoint the exact moment they quit it for good?
