How do you guys finish games? I have time, but it takes foreeeeeeeever. Even simpler games.
If you are like me, quite often I try to be too perfect in games, ie. complete all possible sub-quests in RPGs (beating the optional "Ruby Weapon" boss in FF7 sure took some time and retrials), in RTS games I don't want to lose even one building in my home base (=lots of reloads), in FPS games I want to kill each and every enemy and find every secret etc.
As long as I enjoy my games this way, I don't mind anymore. The only "problem" is that quite often this keeps me from playing newer games, at least if I first want to play older games in the same series before moving to newer ones. But at least I save money this way. Sometimes I might pick some newer title and play it through.
Another related problem is that there are some favourite games that I want to replay several times from time to time, which also keeps me from moving on to other games.
I sometimes dislike games which don't let me get the "whole experience" in a single playthrough though, at least if the optional ways to play it add very little to the gameplay. I think this is the reason why I generally prefer RPGs where I am commanding a party with different characters (fighter, mage, cleric etc.) than a single character with one profession (e.g. like Diablo 2), because then I get to know how is it to play the game with various characters. I might be fed up with the game already after the first playthrough, but still I feel I am missing part of the game because of this. For example I am now playing Diablo 2 with a barbarian, and I would also like to get a feel of the other classes, but I really don't think I want to replay the game just to try out the different classes because I presume the game is otherwise quite the same, same areas, same quests etc.
I think I had the same problem with Max Payne (1 or 2, I don't remember). I just couldn't be arsed to replay the whole game again just to see an optional ending. This is not quite the "replay value" I am looking for in a game.
