And didnt wanted to do that right away at dark souls cause i felt fatigued.
It just happened that Ryse came this month on xbox live gold and it coulnd had been better, a game with no learning curve , just sit back and enjoy the history while hackin and slashing in a simple way, it felt that it was just what i needed to now get back to the "hard work"
Do you also feel the need to take a break from a genre?
I guess I really love RPGs.
I played Gravity Rush 2, Nier, Horizon and Zelda back to back, so it's possible. Definitely done with open world games for quite a while, though.
How can anyon play two open world game back to back? I get burn on these games so fast!
But I could play fighting game all year long tho.
Finished up BotW, Horizon and Watch Dogs 2, and I kinda needed a break from open world games, so I picked up the new season of The Walking Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy. I kinda just wanted to play something that was smaller in scope.
I think it's less genre specific and more, investment specific. I can't always play something super focused like Bloodborne or The Witness, I need to mix it up with other games where I can play a stage or a segment, pause it and watch netflix or hack and slash while I watch something.
Right now I'm jumping between:
Breath of the Wild
Right now I've got the Dark Souls PvP bug again, so I play that and Overwatch between whatever new game I'm playing at the moment (Shovel Knight) which gives me some decent variety.
My backlog is really extensive, and I have lots of series of games I would like to play through, but I don't think i'll make the same mistake again, as I did with the souls games. Mixing in some variety is pretty important.
Pretty much this. I play too many different types of genres to ever really feel fatigue.
Variety's the spice of life, sure.
But I guess I suffered from franchise fatigue when I was playing Tales of Zesteria. Took me a while to finish that but I got through Berseria just fine. Maybe it was because I enjoyed Berseria's presentation more than Zesteria.....oh well, whatever. But now I'm excited to think about what the next Tales of game will be.
TL; DR - I suffer from franchise fatigue more than genre fatigue.
This is my strategy as well.
Yeah. I tend to alternate genres. And lengthy games with short games.
How long to beat.com is essential for that.
Dude, you have plenty of options...
I get exhausted of open world games. Usually when I finish one I never touch it again.
Whatever happened to really good, well-crafted 10-15 hour games? Did the studios out there other than Remedy ALL go bankrupt?
e.g. Recently I've been playing
Breath of the Wild
Resident Evil 7
MLB the Show.
Once I beat RE7, I started Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and going back to Overwatch and other FPS like Halo 5 or R6 Siege for variety spice, shorter play sessions or if I just want to play and not have to think hard about what is going on.
For instance, I played through all the Deus Ex games for the first time a few months ago and really enjoyed them. Tried to move on to Styx immediately afterwards and i just kept comparing them - it wasn't fun. So I played Poi instead.
I guess it's more a way to give each game/franchise its own breathing room without comparing it to something else which, while in the same genre, might feel and play completely differently.
