Five Telltale Signs You'll Never Beat A Video Game
Sometimes, it's best to accept disinterest.
Almost every hardcore gamer has a back catalogue of games he or she hopes to complete. This was easier to achieve just a few years ago, when releases slowed to a crawl from January to August of any given year.
Nowadays, plowing through that stack of games has become an exercise in futility. Holiday games spill over into the New Year, while the past few summers have seen some high profile debuts.
What happened? Millions of people who had never touched a video game picked up a controller, and publishers realized profits could be made year round.
On the positive side, this means more video games to play, but it's a catch 22. There's so much content it's nearly impossible to enjoy everything.
The result? Players barely scratch the surface of the pile.
On that note, here are few telltale signs that you'll never finish or even play all of your games.
You forget the controls
By no means a deal breaker, but if you forget a game's controls, you should probably consider getting rid of it. The odds of you sitting down to flip through the game booklet or plow through the tutorial are slim.
It's still shrink wrapped months later
If you cared about a game, tearing that sucker open would've been a top priority. Do yourself a favor and part ways while it's still worth something.
Your save file gets deleted
Sometimes, nothing hurts worse than losing a save. It's one of those soul crushing experiences no gamer should endure. Unless you really need to see the end, give yourself a pat on the back and move on.
You keep buying games
This one's obvious. There's no way you'll see the bottom of the pile if you continue to add games to it. Slow down and beat those games one by one.
You reach "that point"
We really hate this one, since it may strike at any time. Lots of games have some annoying puzzle or action sequence that completely ruins the momentum. You'll either keep at it for hours and/or eventually call it quits. It's the digital kiss of death.
